Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Elementary Math tutors in Gleview, IL
"I am currently pursuing a Master's of Education in math at Northwestern University, but my passion for learning and education long precedes my formal degree. Prior to returning to school, I worked in management consulting, where I often needed to explain complex quantitative analysis to clients unfamiliar with the math; this helped me develop the ability to understand and explain various approaches to quantitative concepts, which in turn enables me to identify and address causes of confusion. I love working with students in a one-on-one setting that allows me to adapt my explanations to fit a student's individual needs.." ...

" I have always wanted to be a math teacher and enjoyed tutoring on the side, as well as helping some of my peers who have returned to college with their math courses. I have always felt that my credibility as a teacher would increase should I have other career experience under my belt. Hence, my insurance job! However, I absolutely love math and cannot wait to have my job where I get to teach it every day. I feel that the best way to help someone learn is to make sure that they actually understand how to do something and why they are doing it, so that they will be able to apply the method to more than one single problem. I also feel that everyone learns ...

"I'm patient, easy-going, and I enjoy guiding students through concepts to make them easy to understand. Many times, I've encountered students who are convinced that they're no good in Math, and they fall behind in class as a result. The truth is, they have the ability, they're just missing knowledge of certain basic fundamentals. It takes the personal attention of a tutor to find out what that missing knowledge is, and with guided practice, my students have gone on to solve problems they never thought they could, and achieve better grades on their exams. I possess a flexible schedule, and no matter what your school level, I gladly provide ...

"One part of teaching is opening students' minds to new ideas, and as a tutor, I try to encourage students to look at problems from a different perspective, breaking them down into smaller parts to better understand the whole. At the same time I think it is important to know and incorporate a student's individual style of learning. I've lived in Austria and Spain for four years where I taught English in a local school and language academy. Mainly I worked with high school students and adults, but outside of schools I have worked with children of all ages." ...
