Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Elementary Math tutors in Highland Park, IL
"My fiancee and I just moved to the Chicago area. My passion for physics and math distinguishes me as a tutor because I explain the "why" behind the "how". My Experience: I have extensive experience with leading study groups while in school at Georgia Tech. Studying with such a diverse group of people allowed me insight into the different ways people learn and think about studying. Also, a deep understanding of physics and mathematics was fundamental to mastering the engineering subjects I studied every day."

" The other part of tutoring I really enjoy; seeing the students I help gain a significantly better understanding of the math and earn much better grades. My approach to tutoring is one of patience. Learning cannot be rushed, and a student who feels stressed will have a more difficult time learning. Math should be taken seriously, but should not be stressful.."

"I love it! Studying math has given me an understanding of the relationships between quantities and how they change as well as logic and sound thinking. I moved to Chicago, IL in February 2013 leaving the heat of Arizona for the cold.

"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.

"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 differently; I am very sensitive to that and adjust my teaching methods accordingly. It is very important to me that the student thoroughly understands the concepts ...

" 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.
