Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Biology tutors in Highland Park, IL
" After graduating with distinction from the University of Virginia in 2008, I worked as the special assistant for the science advisor at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. I then joined Teach For America, teaching Biology, Chemistry, and Earth Science at a high school in Brooklyn, New York for two years. After Teach For America, I thought my teaching days might be over as I enrolled at the University of Chicago's Medical Scientist Training Program as an M.D./Ph.D."

"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. I have striven to do everything within my ability to make sure that all my students and their parents are satisfied with my services and teaching.."

" 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 easy-going individual. I try to make sessions as interesting and engaging as possible so as not to bore my students." ...

" That was not without it's challenges initially, however. Due to my weak academic background from high school, I spent my first year and summer at school catching up to the typical physics program, and had to spend extra time learning the advanced mathematical techniques needed to succeed in the program. Towards the end of my four years, I had a chance to explore other areas I was interested in, such as theater design, music theory, and fencing. When I finished my BA program, I tried my hand at research. I spent a year working on a project with Fermilab working on locating the Higgs boson." ...

"Through being on the North Park University basketball team and being a volunteer for the International Office, I have experience working with many different people to accomplish set goals. My experiences at North Park and skills I developed there have helped me in my work as a tutor. They have given me the ability to relate to my students so I can teach new concepts and ideas in a clear way they can understand, and through this, genuinely help them in their studies.."

"This experience helped me recognize that different people learn in different ways, and it is often necessary to frame content in several ways to ensure that the concept is being communicated. I have also been a volunteer tutor/mentor with an organization called Cabrini Connections since September. I work with a young student from Chicago one night a week with whatever homework he might have. Through this, I am learning to connect with those who have a different background from myself. In my past teaching/training experiences I have found that mutual respect is extremely important. I believe in giving my students (or employees) the ...

"I have developed a genuine love of learning and wish to ignite that same fire in other students through tutoring. Two of my favorite subjects are biology and French. Biology is the science of life from the tiny molecular interactions occurring in the body and atmosphere to the history of life on Earth, it fascinates me to no end. The French have such an established culture, so refined and known for authors, poets, chefs, fashion designers and so much more."

" 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 as much as they have learned from me. Simply stated, science is a difficult subject. It combines reading comprehension with mathematics and forms an entirely new language." ...
