"I tutor multiple levels of math, ACT and SAT prep in Math and English, and Spanish. My philosophy as a tutor is that students know more than they think they do.

"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'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."

This leads to not only short-term perks like better grades and increased test comprehension, but long-term perks such as complete confidence in an increasingly digital world. I graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with an English degree in 2008. When I'm not a teacher, I'm a copywriter, reader, sports watcher, and dog walker.." ...

"and Illinois Constitution tests. My teacher instilled in me the firm belief that the past shapes the present, and that those who understand history have the power to shape the future. Literature has always been a close second-favorite; I'm an avid reader of fiction both classic and contemporary, and I hope to someday publish a novel of my own. Outside of education, I'm an amateur actor and guitarist/vocalist, and I maintain a close relationship with my alma mater's theater program."
