" I recently relocated to Chicago from Cincinnati, OH, where I was a preferred Latin tutor at a high school that consistently ranks in U.S. News' and Newsweek's lists of top 100 high schools in the nation. In Cincinnati, I worked with Latin students at all levels. My beginning Latin students saw particularly outstanding results, because I was able to teach them the English grammar and mechanics they needed to transition from English to Latin."

"I genuinely love to educate myself and others, and have successfully managed to apply this enthusiasm for learning and teaching to tutoring at the elementary, high school, and college levels. As a tutor, I prefer to address students for the unique people they are. This interpersonal approach allows me to assess and evaluate students’ academic strengths and weaknesses vis-à-vis their own personalities, interests, and most importantly, learning needs. I do not simply seek to impart or prepare, but rather to take advantage of the opportunity to form a substantive, intimate bond with individual students and help them to assimilate ...

"I have extensive experience tutoring and working with youth in general. I have tutored fourth- and fifth-graders in math and peer-edited countless peers' college essays; I have directed youth sports camps and provided support to severely emotionally disturbed high-schoolers. It may sound trite, but I deeply enjoy the intellectual and interpersonal challenge of the teaching experience. While I expect hard work from a student, I am patient above all and listen before I lecture."

" My passion for warm temperatures brought me to Arizona last year to work and live with my extended family. I am currently also doing another passion of mine—coaching soccer—while I tutor and look for a good doctoral program to attend. My plans are to continue in the field of education one day as a professor of either history or education. With my vast classroom experience I am very good at assessing student needs and responding accordingly. I believe each person learns in a unique style, and it is the responsibility of the teacher/tutor to identify that style and make accommodations in his/her instructional approach." ...

"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.

Recently, I've been volunteering for a mentoring foundation. I strive to make my tutoring sessions exciting, fresh, and effective." ...
