Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Algebra tutors in Skokie, il
" The majority of my teaching and tutoring has been done with students in grades five through eight, which are some of my favorites. I also have a masters degree in gifted education, which taught me to strengthen higher levels of thinking and learning with students. I incorporate inferential thinking and logic into all of my tutoring sessions in order to give my students practice with skills that they will need throughout their lives. I also have an arsenal of test-taking tips and tricks that students can use to excel on standardized tests. Test-taking is generally not an inborn talent; it is a skill that must be learned." ...

" After having little success with their methods, I eventually found one that worked for me and in a short time, the results were showing in my grades. I feel that each student must approach academics in a unique way that caters to his or her learning style as well as one that is appropriate for the subject. Once the preferred study style has been identified, it makes for a much more comfortable environment, and one in which the student will excel. With my firsthand experience of using different learning strategies to master topics, I want to find the learning style that works best for you and help you achieve your academic goals.." ...

" I can help with almost all levels of science from grade school to college. I'm not a dull, "science geek". Problems like science anxiety and "bad teacher syndrome" are my specialty. I can also help good students become great students and get into top tier universities. I have found that what I truly love is helping others to succeed in any way that I can. I believe that anyone can understand science if it is explained in a way that is meaningful. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my wife, playing with my dogs and working on old cars and Harleys.." ...

"I believe that science and the maths are vital componants that make our world function. I want to help every student realize how important the sciences and math are, while instilling in them how interesting and fun they can be. I have found that students have a hard time relating to science and math concepts and that is why I like to incorporate everyday situations and objects into my lessons to help students better understand the different concepts. I realize that every student has different learning styles and I adjust my teaching to their needs." ...

" My specialties are math, essay writing and Spanish. I love algebra because it's so neat and there's always a right answer, and I enjoy helping students realize that it's more straightforward than it seems. I learned Spanish as a second language, and becoming fluent was one of the most exciting things I have ever done. Helping beginners to feel comfortable with the language is very rewarding."

"Behind every topic, a new world is waiting for every student if we can just make things click. I tutor with gestures and jokes, messy diagrams and clean metaphors. I've always learned by getting the feel of the subject, and that's an experience I hope to share with you or your kids. I'm an undergraduate at Brown University, though I'm currently on leave to work with a non-profit organization here in Chicago. My college search is not yet a distant memory, making me a great resource for college application guidance, especially when it comes to fine-tuning or drafting personal essays." ...
