"Every truth has four corners: as a teacher I give you one corner, and it is for you to find the other three.-Confucius As a tutor it is my goal to not only teach my students the material they need to learn, but to better their core understanding of a subject and their methods of learning for the future. This way, they can continue to learn at an advanced level long after they no longer require the service of a tutor. ."

" Other than tutoring, my interests include hiking, reading, and following the Bulls. My previous experience includes tutoring other students in courses I had previously taken while in college. Presently, I volunteer at a home for at-risk teens and help with interview skills, developing resumes, and filling out applications. Also, I substitute teach at a Catholic middle school in the West Suburbs. When tutoring, I believe it's important to stress understanding the concepts that can lead to true subject mastery. Often, these are touched upon in the classroom, where there simply isn't enough time to digest the ideas fully." ...

I am very capable at the SAT and ACT as can be seen by my scores, and also am well suited to tutor the MCAT as well as I have taken it with the intention of applying to medical school. I am very easy going and sociable. I have experience tutoring elementary school and middle school age students in all subjects." ...

" This strategy has been very effective in my teaching experiences, and I am certain that it will be effective with anyone who wants to do better in a subject area. My background in Biology began in 2004 and stretches through my time at Loyola University Chicago. I took Biology at an Honors and Advanced Placement level in high school and majored in it in college. But my level of expertise does not stop there--I have tutored students in virtually every subject from Kindergarten through 8th grade, and I have served as a mentor to many high school and undergraduate students on Chicago’s north side. Along the way, I have learned from my students just ...

"In addition to math and chemistry, as a native speaker of Chinese I always feel happy to teach people studying my country’s language. I believe that studying a foreign language can be fun, and does not mean that you have to take those boring grammar and vocabulary classes over and over again. Passion is very important to this process. I like to teach in a way which keeps the students interested and engaged, and help them to be highly self motivated."

" Part of my everyday routine is using the concepts learned in these subjects to perform my duties. As part of my education and background, I have taught classes at an introductory college level in Biology 101 and 102. I received high marks for engaging and explaining key concepts to my students. I have also tutored friends and family members ranging from high school to medical school. I try to engage students at every step of a problem to ensure that they are not simply memorizing the answers but to ensure that they are understanding the problem at a fundamental level. Most importantly is the fact that I am a patient, understanding and ...
