" The other part of tutoring I really enjoy; seeing the students I help gain a significantly better understanding of the math and earn much better grades. My approach to tutoring is one of patience. Learning cannot be rushed, and a student who feels stressed will have a more difficult time learning. Math should be taken seriously, but should not be stressful.."

"I made sure I was always available to talk to younger players about issues both on and off the field. Over the course of my Junior and Senior years at Messiah I developed several great friendships and had countless conversations through which I helped younger players with the trials encountered by college student-athletes. Additionally, I have experience in a supervisory role at a mosquito control company training new employees and assisting veteran employees to improve their productivity. This experience helped me recognize that different people learn in different ways, and it is often necessary to frame content in several ways to ...

"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.."

" Following my college career, I obtained a Masters degree in Biomedical Sciences from Midwestern University in Downers Grove. I have always been fascinated with biology and chemistry and how microscopic interactions lead to the world we see around us. I love learning about all areas of science and this passion drives my excitement for tutoring. As someone who was able to go to his dream school, I am committed to helping everyone I tutor to have the same opportunity.."

"Getting there necessitates taking the LSAT, an exam that is quite different from other standardized tests in that it focuses on a singular skill set: formal logic. But learning about the logical doesn't always come across as logical. That's where I can help fill the void and facilitate the learning process, making what may seem like a daunting task much more manageable and conquerable. Quite frankly, the LSAT is a test that everyone could score perfectly on, given an extra five minutes per section (which no matter how hard you may wish for while taking the test will never happen, sadly enough)." ...

"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."

"This is my 5th year teaching in the South Chicagoland area. I chose a career in teaching because I have always had a knack for helping people understand difficult concepts. Since high school, I was always helping friends and classmates with homework and tests. My favorite part of being a teacher is seeing when "the lightbulb" turns on when someone finally gets it."

"Authors hadn't written on this scale before, and so they were incredibly inventive (and more than a little strange)--they could mix fantasy, romance, serious religious allegory, political satire, and crude humor, for example, into one very entertaining book. 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." ...

"At the same time I think it is important to know and incorporate a student's individual style of learning. I've lived in Austria and Spain for four years where I taught English in a local school and language academy. Mainly I worked with high school students and adults, but outside of schools I have worked with children of all ages. My main tutoring subjects, in addition to being my biggest interests, are German, Spanish, History, Geography, and Earth Sciences and I'm always excited to help others learn about them."
