"With a patient, yet persistent style, I am certain I can be of assistance to you. I have been practicing law since I passed the bar in 2006, but am back in school to finish up my biology degree so that I can become a Patent Attorney. Before becoming a lawyer I aspired to be an elementary school teacher and do have a teaching background. I minored in elementary education in college, student taught during my last semester, and also worked as a teacher's aide for our local Special School District. While most of my experience has been with elementary aged children, I am comfortable working with folks of all ages, including college and graduate ...

"Through my schooling, I have learned an incredible amount regarding children, the way they learn, different methods for teaching, and strategies for helping young ones achieve. Outside of the college classroom, I have learned even more about how to work with children by getting to know students one on one. I believe that by relating to my students, I learn more about how they process information best, and in return I am able to come up with creative and innovative ways to help them achieve and succeed. I am a persistent, motivated, and enthusiastic person, especially when it comes to helping children excel. My desire and passion for ...

" My past tutoring and teaching experiences include working with individual college students on English essay writing, Intro Micro- and Macroeconomics, and 4th-5th grade creative writing. I am now working full-time as a tutor/behavior coach with an 8th grade English class on the south side of Chicago. My main interests are English composition and English language/literature. Additionally, I very much enjoy working with students on introductory Economics and high school Mathematics.

"It may sound trite, but I deeply enjoy the intellectual and interpersonal challenge of the teaching experience. While I expect hard work from a student, I am patient above all and listen before I lecture.

In my spare time, I run religiously, listen constantly to music, and read."

"I understand that often it is necessary to go beyond the home and family to get students the assistance they need. I have worked with children for many years.

"I certainly can put myself in the place of others, as I have in the past relied on tutors to get me through some tough topics. As for other interests outside tutoring, I am very interested in languages and linguistics, as I currently teach graduate and undergraduate linguistics at Northeastern Illinois University. Outside my day job, I run and bike, and I'm interested in astronomy, nature, history and Shakespeare!."

"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. On one hand, science is a small community and relies on personal, one-on-one apprenticeship in order to train the next generation of researchers and explorers. On the other hand, learning science (learning anything, in fact) is best done with context in mind; if you can sufficiently teach someone, ...
