Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Calculus tutors in Wheaton, IL
" 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."

"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. Based on the reviews, the director of the program promoted me to be a Senior Facilitator of the program, leading the Calculus section." ...

" I've worked as a tutor to groups of students, as well as one-on-one, and have taught a university course in physical chemistry. In all of these, I found it to be incredibly rewarding when I knew that a student was able to understand the subject better than before. It's about more than just learning bits and pieces of information to spit out on a test in the hope of a better grade (although that is certainly an important part of it, too). It's about increasing that ability to "think like a scientist", and being able to better understand our world." ...

"There I gained a strong background in math and science, but also the humanities, while not thought of due to the name of the school, were also very strong. I am a very good standardized test taker, and know all of the tricks and tips that you need to get ahead. I am very capable at the SAT and ACT as can be seen by my scores, and also am well suited to tutor the MCAT as well as I have taken it with the intention of applying to medical school. I am very easy going and sociable. I have experience tutoring elementary school and middle school age students in all subjects. I am also able to tutor high school students in a variety of subjects, as well as college ...

"I can proudly say I've taught math and hard science to all types, from poets to future engineers. I focus on teaching my students to always think for themselves and to come up with their own solutions rather than relying on rote memorization. My goal is that come test time, even if they are initially stumped, the intuition that students have worked so hard to build up will push them in the right direction. In my free time, I devour books, go on cooking adventures, and explore Chicago with my friends.."

" 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.."

" 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 ...

" 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."
