Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Chemistry tutors in Plainfield, IL
"Often times in a large classroom setting students do not get the personal attention necessary to foster a solid understanding of critical concepts and their true potential is left locked. This is a major flaw in our educational system. Through my many years of tutoring experience, my support for one-on-one teaching as an integral learning tool has only grown. My tutoring strategy involves a variety of methods,tips, and tricks that have proven to be extremely successful for my past students.."

"In order to attend one must take the SAT and apply to the school. 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 began tutoring in high school by working with students to improve their essays, and continued as a writing tutor in college. I also helped students with their Chemistry lab reports. While I enjoy working as a writing tutor, science is my favorite subject, and I am excited to help people learn Physics, Chemistry and Biology. My enthusiasm for these subjects helps me to teach students the material in a way that makes it interesting for them and allows them to understand the concepts."

"I believe that my greatest attributes as a tutor are twofold: my genuine concern for the success of my students combined with an ability to elucidate difficult subject matter in a coherent and effective manner to anyone who's willing to listen. I've worked with 3rd graders, college juniors, and everywhere in between; so, I've learned to tailor my tutoring approach to each individual student and their particular learning style. For fun, I love hanging out with friends, watching movies, and playing any and every sport. I'm particularly passionate about baseball, and I've played competitively from kindergarten through high school." ...

"I have also tutored general chemistry. In addition, I worked as the Sports Editor for the Chicago Flame Newspaper where I was able to spend much time practicing my writing skills. When teaching I like to provoke students into answering their own questions by leading them towards the answer. I have worked in a Human Memory and Cognition Laboratory at UIC and found that when students are able to create their own connections in memory learning can be much more beneficial and persist for much longer."

"At Northwestern, I worked as a teaching assistant - instructing in both laboratory and classroom settings in intro and advanced classes. Many people struggle with Chemistry (including me, on occasion), but I aim to prove that it is very conquerable and can even be enjoyable. My goal is to teach critical thinking skills and how to approach problems rationally, rather than simply providing answers, allowing students to access underlying concepts and gain a deeper understanding of the material. For standardized test preparation, I believe most students already possess the ability and knowledge to do well; they simply need strategies ...

"student at the University of Chicago and I have helped students who started out many years behind grade level pass important state exams as a Teach For America high school science teacher. 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."

" I can help with almost all levels of Science from grade school to college. I am not a dull, "science geek." Problems like science anxiety and "bad teacher syndrome" are my specialty. I can also help good students become great students and get into top tier universities. I have found that what I truly love is helping others to succeed in any way that I can. I believe that anyone can understand science if it is explained in a way that is meaningful. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my wife, playing with my dogs and working on old cars and Harleys.." ...

"I have worked with high school students for the past 5 years and absolutely love teaching! In my experience, most students already have the knowledge they need to do well. Teaching is really about building confidence and helping a student tie together bits and pieces they already know to answer a problem. Every student is different, and I enjoy the challenge of being able to figure out how to best tailor a session to an individual's learning style.."
