"I do my best to keep lessons fun and interesting by connecting them to a student's interests whenever possible. I believe that one-on-one help is often the best pathway to success, and I enjoy individualizing my lessons to a student's interests and needs. My background is in Linguistics and Communication Disorders, but I have always loved math and science as well. When I'm not tutoring or studying for my own classes, you'll often see me reading, baking, or going for a walk.."

"Behind every topic, a new world is waiting for every student if we can just make things click. 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. My college search is not yet a distant memory, making me a great resource for college application guidance, especially when it comes to fine-tuning or drafting personal essays." ...

"I'm also certified fluent in both French and Spanish and spent last semester in Paris, France. I'm a fun, engaging teacher with a dynamic personal energy, and one of my greatest strengths is generating enthusiasm in even the most reluctant students. I don't see why grammar lessons can't be games and punctuation worksheets can't make you laugh! I understand how discouraging it can be to struggle with reading or writing at any age, and my personal objective is to give students the tools they need to feel confident and proud of their work. In my spare time, I love reading, running, and spending time with my family.." ...

"I have tutored fourth- and fifth-graders in math and peer-edited countless peers' college essays; I have directed youth sports camps and provided support to severely emotionally disturbed high-schoolers. 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.

"Watching someone learn, understand, and grow and knowing that you've helped in that process is incredibly fulfilling. My teaching style is very easy to work with. I like to see what the students know first, then work with them in a way that builds upon their strengths while tackling their weaknesses, so that they never feel left behind or confused. It's very important to me for the students to understand and be comfortable with the material, and I'd never want to push something on them that they're not ready for."
