" I believe mentoring a student in this manner is just as crucial as teaching the concept itself. This strategy has been very effective in my teaching experiences, and I am certain that it will be effective with anyone who wants to do better in a subject area. My background in Biology began in 2004 and stretches through my time at Loyola University Chicago. I took Biology at an Honors and Advanced Placement level in high school and majored in it in college. But my level of expertise does not stop there--I have tutored students in virtually every subject from Kindergarten through 8th grade, and I have served as a mentor to many high school and ...

" While there, I worked as hard as I could to exceed standards and developed an intrinsic motivation to learn anything and everything that I could. By the time I completed that experience, I was prepared and yearning to move on to greater things. I found such things at the University of Chicago, where I chose to study physics. That was not without it's challenges initially, however. Due to my weak academic background from high school, I spent my first year and summer at school catching up to the typical physics program, and had to spend extra time learning the advanced mathematical techniques needed to succeed in the program." ...

"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 ...

"I LOVE science, and its applications with math, and am very excited to be helping students in these fields! In my free time, I play in three softball leagues and love watching professional sports. I love running for exercise, and in 2011 ran an 8k, a 15k, 3 half marathons, and the Chicago Marathon. I look forward to meeting you!."

"I work with students for both ACT prep and academic support. As a philosopher, I spend a lot of time breaking down complex ideas into simple, digestible parts; I'm pretty good at it, and I think it makes me a better tutor. I've worked with the whole spectrum of students, from sixth graders through college seniors, including students with disabilities. My success has in every case been due to my patience, my ability to adapt to student needs, and my ability to break down complex ideas into simple, digestible components. I've found that I especially enjoy helping students prepare for the ACT, but I love teaching math, physics, and the ...

"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.."

" Prior to law school, I earned my bachelor's degree in Bioengineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and worked as a medical equipment technician during my semester breaks. As a lawyer, it is not only my job to advocate my client's position, but to counsel my client. Counseling involves taking concepts that can be abstract or counter-intuitive, and making sure the client appropriately understands the concepts. My experiences working as a lawyer and equipment technician have taught me how to distill difficult concepts into much more understandable material. I then build on that material until the student has ...

"I have also done multiple exam reviews, as well as prepared and presented workshops on specific subject areas in organic chemistry. I also received a top tutor award based on student ratings and working habits. Outside of that I’ve helped students in genetics, general biology, biochemistry, biophysics and a list of other classes. I like to engage students in the learning process and give them multiple perspectives on a given topic."

" My personal strengths are microbiology, biochemistry and organic chemistry, but that is not to say that I am unable to teach subjects in mathematics, inorganic chemistry or many other subjects. Part of my everyday routine is using the concepts learned in these subjects to perform my duties. As part of my education and background, I have taught classes at an introductory college level in Biology 101 and 102. I received high marks for engaging and explaining key concepts to my students. I have also tutored friends and family members ranging from high school to medical school." ...
