Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Calculus tutors in Northbrook, IL
" I graduated from the University of South Dakota with a BSED (Bachelor of Science in Education) in Mathematics. I have experience with teaching in South Dakota, Wyoming, Kansas, and a DoDD's school. My student teaching experience was in England in a DoDD's school. I taught Geometry and Algebra I. I enjoyed the classes where I was able to teach students in a more one-on-one environment. After graduating, I got a job as a high school Mathematics teacher in a small town in Wyoming."

" I am staying in the Chicago area because I truly love the city and envision staying here for a long time. As far as tutoring, I have had students ranging from sophomores in high school to adults transitioning into a new career. My Engineering curriculum at Northwestern was heavily centered around math, chemistry, biology, and physics, so I can work with a student on more than one class at a time. I'm a laid back individual, but I like to push my students. I know that every student is able to do well and I really enjoy helping them along their path to success." ...

" That means I know calculus inside and out, and I especially what it means in real world terms. Additionally, I've worked with students from high school through college on calculus, physics, and introductory economics, and have developed an appreciation for different styles of learning. Math is the language the universe speaks, and I'm very excited to learn about that as a physicist. As a tutor, I hope I can share some of that enthusiasm with you.."

" 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 ...

"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 ...

" This passion means knowing the material well and, most important of all, caring about the student and putting their needs and feelings first. Mathematics and writing are two skills needed more and more, as the world becomes more technologically advanced, and as the economy demands more creativity and self-expression. It is my pleasure to help students prepare!."

"I majored in chemistry and general/statistical mathematics, and am capable of teaching up to abstraction subjects in the latter. I have also studied literature, specifically post-modern American, British Renaissance, and poetry throughout my IB high school and college years. I'm very familiar with US and Comparative Government due to having worked as an outliner for the AP books. Teaching is a personal endeavor and a necessary passion in my particular field. On one hand, science is a small community and relies on personal, one-on-one apprenticeship in order to train the next generation of researchers and explorers." ...
