"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.."

"I have a great passion for learning, and my goal is to instill that same passion in my students. I graduated from Purdue University and have experience tutoring there for all four years, as well as a year of tutoring at Illinois Central College upon graduating from Purdue. My style involves trying to engage students as much as possible with the material, and fostering a fun learning environment through my sense of humor and positive reinforcement to build confidence. My favorite subjects are Science, specifically Chemistry and Physics, as well as anything involving Math. I hope that you'll consider me and that we can enjoy learning ...

"Every truth has four corners: as a teacher I give you one corner, and it is for you to find the other three.-Confucius As a tutor it is my goal to not only teach my students the material they need to learn, but to better their core understanding of a subject and their methods of learning for the future. This way, they can continue to learn at an advanced level long after they no longer require the service of a tutor. ."

" 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."

" There I studied Physics with a specialization in Astrophysics. I was very involved in the student physics organizations, published several papers about gamma rays, and traveled to South America to work on experiments. I then went to graduate school at Northwestern University, where I received my Master's Degree in Learning Sciences (which is like a degree in Education with an emphasis on public policy.) I focused mostly on better teaching practices outside the classroom, utilizing technology to teach, and getting girls interested in math and science. I have an informal, friendly teaching style. I like to show students that they CAN ...
