Carefully selected, highly-credentialed ACT Writing tutors in Northbrook, IL
"I think a tutor can have a significant impact on the success of any student. Everyone has their own way of learning and classes can be difficult if the teacher does not recognize an individual's personal style of learning. As a tutor, I can personally work with a student and find different ways to approach a class. Besides doing very well in my classes, I have a wide range of experience working with people in various fields."

"I'm a recent transplant to Chicago, and I'm excited to explore the midwest! I'm heavily immersed in the sciences and stay pretty busy in a bacterial genetics lab whenever I'm not tutoring. Science is a full-time lifestyle for me, so I've had my share of exploring as well as tutoring chemistry, biology, biochemistry, and physics up to the undergraduate level. I majored in chemistry and general/statistical mathematics, and am capable of teaching up to abstraction subjects in the latter. I have also studied literature, specifically post-modern American, British Renaissance, and poetry throughout my IB high school and college years." ...

If your student needs any help in Language Arts, request me, you won't be disappointed. I've been reading ever since I started reading those little pamphlet books like "See Dick Run."
