" I graduated from Northwestern University with a degree in communications, and I am originally from the Chicago suburbs. I've worked with high school students for the past 5 years and absolutely love teaching! In my experience, most students already have the knowledge they need to do well. Teaching is really about building confidence and helping a student tie together bits and pieces they already know to answer a problem. Every student is different, and I enjoy the challenge of being able to figure out how to best tailor a session to an individual's learning style.." ...

"Currently, I am a medical student at Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine (class of 2016). As a tutor, there's no greater satisfaction than witnessing a student achieve his or her goals. To that end, I derive much enjoyment from helping my students along their way. I believe that my greatest attributes as a tutor are twofold: my genuine concern for the success of my students combined with an ability to elucidate difficult subject matter in a coherent and effective manner to anyone who's willing to listen. I've worked with 3rd graders, college juniors, and everywhere in between; so, I've learned to tailor my tutoring approach to ...

"I worked as a teaching assistant and tutor for a physics course for two semesters my senior year. 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 ...

" I ultimately want to become a professor and I believe my experience as a tutor will help me become the type of professor that can effectively lecture as well as personally mentor my students through their studies and research. During my graduate school training I had the opportunity to mentor students from high school to graduate school. Each situation provided me with an opportunity to teach science and laboratory research skills to students of varying levels of experience. I understand that academic success is much easier when a student feels engaged in the topic. I feel that it is my job as tutor and mentor to explain subjects in a way ...
