"I do my best to keep lessons fun and interesting by connecting them to a student's interests whenever possible. I believe that one-on-one help is often the best pathway to success, and I enjoy individualizing my lessons to a student's interests and needs. My background is in Linguistics and Communication Disorders, but I have always loved math and science as well. When I'm not tutoring or studying for my own classes, you'll often see me reading, baking, or going for a walk.."

"Besides the obvious obstacles of differentiating tones and writing characters, the language is infused with many cultural nuances that add to its beauty as well as its complexity. As a native speaker of English myself I know just how difficult learning Mandarin can be. After several extensive trips to China (including 6 months as an exchange student at Xiamen University) I also know how much fun there is to be had, not to mention the plethora of opportunities that come with speaking Mandarin well. The Chinese have a saying: One more friend, one more road. So allow me to call upon my experiences in learning the language and culture to guide ...

"I also helped coach a state-qualifying high-school girls cross-country team. In my graduate career I tutored refugee children who had resettled in the United States. I find that because of my academic background I am easily able to relate to others and help them achieve their goals. At my core I am a problem solver; I find satisfaction in using teamwork to complete tasks that may not have otherwise been achievable."

" During high school, I tutored other high school students in Chemistry and Calculus, and the students I tutored excelled in their classes, thanking me at the end of the year. At Northwestern, I was a Gateway Science Workshop facilitator in Calculus, leading other undergraduates in a small-group setting through worksheets in order to solidify their grasp of difficult Calculus concepts. My students in this program wrote rave reviews to my director, who personally congratulated me on my diligence and helpfulness. All of my students did very well in their Calculus classes, and some even became fellow facilitators." ...

"I am currently applying to medical schools in the Chicago area. I began tutoring while home on breaks from college by helping my younger sisters with their high school courses and by helping them prepare for the ACT and SAT tests. I didn't become a formal tutor until my senior year of college when my physics professor from the previous year asked me to take up a position as a teaching assistant because of my performance in the class and social nature. I thoroughly enjoyed my teaching experiences and I am looking forward to helping new students as a Varsity tutor.." ...

"I always try to get students to be inspired by the material they are studying, because I think that is the best way to learn it. If I can get a student genuinely interested in the subject they are studying, then I am sure the better grades and test scores will follow. I am an unashamed Biology nerd, and I love all of Science in general. I have learned so much about the world and how amazing life is through these subjects and I want to pass that nerdiness onto others."

"There I develop curriculum and provide professional development to educators. I very much enjoy my tutoring positions and have found them to be rewarding, both for me and for my students. The majority of my clients come to me for ACT test prep, but I have tutored many other subjects, ranging from elementary language arts and SSAT/ISEE prep to Algebra II/Trigonometry and college writing. My goal is to teach my students the strategies, skills, and information necessary to succeed in their classes or on standardized tests. In addition, I strive to foster their independence and increase their self-confidence. I have a love of learning, and ...
