A photo of Allie who is one of our English tutors in Chicago, IL
"... As a graduate of the Oberlin College Creative Writing Program, I believe that every writing assignment, from historical essays to Japanese poetry to science term papers, has the possibility to enthrall and fascinate. I believe that all writing is creative writing, and that in every assignment can be approached with equal measures of enthusiasm and diligence. I am an excellent teacher of the building blocks of language, including Phonics and Grammar..."

A photo of Joseph who is one of our English tutors in Chicago, IL
"... 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..."

A photo of Benson who is one of our English tutors in Chicago, IL
"...I tutor with gestures and jokes, messy diagrams and clean metaphors. I've always learned by getting the feel of the subject, and that's an experience I hope to share with you or your kids. I'm an undergraduate at Brown University, though I'm currently on leave to work with a non-profit organization here in Chicago.

A photo of Mimi who is one of our English tutors in Chicago, IL
"...I have spent my non-teaching career in corporate finance, development and internal consulting, but have a hard time imagining not teaching in some capacity, hence Varsity Tutors. I am very interested in languages ad abstract communication, which is why language arts and mathematics are by far my favorite subjects to talk about and teach. On the surface, languages and branches of math are very different, but they are both based in their internal logic and can both feel beautiful when you make a breakthrough, which is what I aim to share with students. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, yoga, cooking, eating and discussing ideas with friends..."
