Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Geometry tutors in Des Plaines, IL
"I look to show them the parallels between things they are familiar with and the problem in question. Seeing a student's realization that they can solve a problem brings me satisfaction. In my free time, I enjoy computer programming, plane spotting, reading, 3d modeling, Aviation, playing basketball and soccer, and DJ'ing. I am a member of the ORD Airport Watch and the Loyola Physics Club."

"I am highly qualified to teach writing skills, mastery of the English language, statistics, history, and of course, anything relating to the study of politics. Needless to say, I am a jack of all trades. I have taught clients ranging from middle school up to the college undergraduate level. I teach at UIC and Northeastern Illinois University, where I have taught a variety of classes in American and international politics. I have received much praise in my teaching evaluations; in fact, two students have told me that they waited to take a particular class until it was assigned to me." ...

"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. I specialize in teaching standardized tests (ACT and SAT I and Subject Tests), math and statistics, writing, French, and economics. In my spare time, I run religiously, listen constantly to music, and read."

"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. My Methods: Everyone learns in different ways."

"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 my services with good humor, patience, and respect. I look forward to working with you!."

"While I enjoyed both one-on-one tutoring and teaching a large class, I enjoy small groups the most. With a small group, I am able to encourage the students to not only find the answers themselves, but also allow some students to help others. In addition to strengthening their grasp on the material, it also creates connections for personal study groups. In terms of mathematical interests, I'm personally most interested in upper level algebra and number theory, but I enjoy tutoring all areas of mathematics. I'm an avid lover of board and card games, especially the mathematical strategies behind them." ...

" I've been told that my enthusiasm for learning is infectious. When you find a way to connect and engage with a subject, learning is fun--period! That's why it's important for me to understand my students so I can approach their lessons in the most engaging and effective ways. A little more about my academic background: I graduated from high school (a boarding school for the arts) at 16, completed AP Calculus at 15, have studied three languages (French, German and Russian), won the Richard Kirkwood Poetry Award, and have been published in five different literary journals and anthologies. I plan to continue my education through graduate ...
