Carefully selected, highly-credentialed ACT Science tutors in Lake Forest, IL
" I currently split my time between the city (Lakeview/Lincoln Park in Chicago) and the west suburbs (Addison, IL) When I am tutoring a student, I look to make a problem applicable to the student's experiences. I look to show them the parallels between things they are familiar with and the problem in question. Seeing a student's realization that they can solve a problem brings me satisfaction. In my free time, I enjoy computer programming, plane spotting, reading, 3d modeling, Aviation, playing basketball and soccer, and DJ'ing. I am a member of the ORD Airport Watch and the Loyola Physics Club." ...

"As a tutor, I like to help students learn how to learn and study, not just pass tests. Since early high school, I have tutored both peers and younger students in a variety of subjects.

"I then continued on to Syracuse University where I completed my Master's in international relations. I am particularly interested in conflict, crisis, and how related factors and events can influence decisions in an international context. As an undergraduate I was a TA who worked with introductory psychology students as well as students pursuing more specialize courses in neuropsychology and cognitive psychology. I also helped coach a state-qualifying high-school girls cross-country team. In my graduate career I tutored refugee children who had resettled in the United States." ...

" I obtained my law degree from the Indiana University Maurer School of Law in Bloomington, Indiana. Prior to law school, I earned my bachelor's degree in Bioengineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and worked as a medical equipment technician during my semester breaks. As a lawyer, it is not only my job to advocate my client's position, but to counsel my client. Counseling involves taking concepts that can be abstract or counter-intuitive, and making sure the client appropriately understands the concepts. My experiences working as a lawyer and equipment technician have taught me how to distill difficult ...

"I am from Manhattan but have been living in the Chicago area for almost 5 years. Ever since I was a little girl, I've had a passion for teaching and for school. I used to line my stuffed animals up and teach them lessons on various books or history on my white board. Fifteen years later, I get to do the real thing. My credentials: I graduated in the top 5 of my high school class and took numerous AP classes as well as the SAT, ACT, and SATII."

"I am interested in instructing students in all levels of math--from pre-algebra and elementary math to calculus and differential equations. I also tutor high school physics, chemistry, and Spanish. For four semesters at IIT I have served as a teaching assistant for a variety of courses: Geometry for Architects, Introduction to Calculus, and Introduction to Biomedical Engineering. Through this experience I have learned to assess each student's learning style uniquely, and I recognize that no two students are alike."

"Currently, I am a medical student at Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine (class of 2016). As a tutor, there's no greater satisfaction than witnessing a student achieve his or her goals. To that end, I derive much enjoyment from helping my students along their way. I believe that my greatest attributes as a tutor are twofold: my genuine concern for the success of my students combined with an ability to elucidate difficult subject matter in a coherent and effective manner to anyone who's willing to listen. I've worked with 3rd graders, college juniors, and everywhere in between; so, I've learned to tailor my tutoring approach to ...

"I have experience with and specialize in SAT tutoring. I teach time management techniques and tricks in addition to the actual material on the test. I go over the types of questions that are most likely to show up on the test, and make sure that students are completely comfortable with them. I customize my tutoring plan to each student's strengths and weaknesses, and hopefully by the time we are done the student will have no weaknesses! ."

"This has taken the form of summer math enrichment programs where I worked closely with both CPS students and teachers, being a teaching assistant for first-year students at the UofC, and extensive one-on-one tutoring with students from my high school. I can proudly say I've taught math and hard science to all types, from poets to future engineers. I focus on teaching my students to always think for themselves and to come up with their own solutions rather than relying on rote memorization. My goal is that come test time, even if they are initially stumped, the intuition that students have worked so hard to build up will push them in the right ...
