Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Calculus tutors in Chicago, IL
" I have taught for University of Maryland University College for the past two years in Greece. I teach members of the US Navy, and I have found it one of the most challenging and exciting experiences in my academic career. Students in my classrooms often have varying educational backgrounds, so I have had to modify the curriculum so that it fit all students, regardless of their academic level. This was a daunting class, which I managed to tackle successfully."

" My philosophy as a tutor is that students know more than they think they do. I like to guide my students through solving problems by using their prior knowledge and experience, and asking questions so that they can participate as much as I do. My favorite thing about tutoring is getting to know my students on an individual basis, and figuring out how they learn best. In my free time, I love being with my family and friends, reading good books, dancing, and exploring the city of Chicago-my new home!."

" I led laboratories as well as a discussion period to go over homework questions. Being a lifelong student of math and science, I think I have a strong understanding of students' frustrations with the subjects having experienced many of them myself at one point or another. I can provide a fresh perspective to students and help them view problems in different ways that teachers may not have the time to do. ."

" In 2006 I was one of approximately 150 in the inaugural class of Chicago Teaching Fellows, a cohort of individuals who sought accelerated alternative teaching certification through a joint program between Chicago Public Schools and National Louis University. After an intensive summer workshop, I taught high school mathematics full time for two years at Chicago Discovery Academy, my courseload included Honors Algebra I and Honors Geometry, AP Calculus, Algebra I, and a formal preparation course for juniors taking the PSAE (which includes, among other components, ths ACT). I thoroughly enjoy the rewarding experiences I have had ...

" I am a very logical and rational person, and I believe that is reflected in how I teach my students. I do my best to have students understand concepts rather than just memorizing them. Although learning process may be more difficult, problems will become much easier in the long run. I try not to force students into doing something but rather, encourage them."

"I use both analytical as well as graphical methods or a combination of the two as needed to cater to each student. Having both an Engineering and Architecture background, I am able to explain difficult concepts to either a left or right-brained student, verbally or with visual representations. I am also great at getting students excited about the subject they are learning by relating it to something relevant to them.."

" It is also my interest in learning that makes tutoring something I enjoy doing. As an undergraduate I spent time tutoring other students in several subject areas, including physics, chemistry, biology and math. Knowing that I helped someone have a better understanding of a subject is very rewarding. This is especially true for the sciences, an area many people dislike, because these subjects are often difficult to understand and can be frustrating to learn."

"I am currently pursuing a Master's of Education in math at Northwestern University, but my passion for learning and education long precedes my formal degree. Prior to returning to school, I worked in management consulting, where I often needed to explain complex quantitative analysis to clients unfamiliar with the math; this helped me develop the ability to understand and explain various approaches to quantitative concepts, which in turn enables me to identify and address causes of confusion. I love working with students in a one-on-one setting that allows me to adapt my explanations to fit a student's individual needs.." ...
