" I continued at college by volunteering during homework time at a local homeless shelter and working at the college writing center. After graduation, as jobs and family commitments allowed, I continued to volunteer, again at a homeless shelter through a Chicago Public School program. Currently, I work with the wonderful children Varsity finds for me, devoting my energy and imagination to making their learning as productive as possible.."

"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 direction. In my free time, I devour books, go on cooking adventures, and explore Chicago with my friends.."

" I've been tutoring high school students for the past three years. My goal in tutoring is for my students to learn what questions they need to ask themselves when the going gets tough. If I'm teaching a language, for example, I help my students not only with translating particular sentences, but with forming a method of translation for themselves. That way, they have the tools to solve further difficulties even when I'm not there."

"I believe everyone has the capacity to learn; you just have to find the way that fits your personality. I LOVE seeing people grow and succeed! In my spare time, I enjoy playing soccer or running (weather permitting). I can be found relaxing at the piano or with my flute, and look forward to learning even more musical instruments. Some day, I hope to travel around the world and experience as many different cultures as I can!."

" I am a firm believer in problem-based learning, and encourage students to ask questions and think for themselves. Although I will not provide answers or a quick and simple fix, I will provide students with guidance and encouragement as they work through problems and learn to apply familiar concepts to unfamiliar situations. I also believe strongly in teaching “to the student,” and therefore adapt my teaching to fit each individual’s needs and learning styles. By pinpointing and addressing students’ weaknesses and creating a comfortable, nurturing environment in which they can learn, I work to help students solidify their ...

" There I studied Physics with a specialization in Astrophysics. I was very involved in the student physics organizations, published several papers about gamma rays, and traveled to South America to work on experiments. I then went to graduate school at Northwestern University, where I received my Master's Degree in Learning Sciences (which is like a degree in Education with an emphasis on public policy.) I focused mostly on better teaching practices outside the classroom, utilizing technology to teach, and getting girls interested in math and science. I have an informal, friendly teaching style. I like to show students that they CAN ...

I am now working full-time as a tutor/behavior coach with an 8th grade English class on the south side of Chicago. My main interests are English composition and English language/literature.
