" As far as tutoring, I have had students ranging from sophomores in high school to adults transitioning into a new career. My Engineering curriculum at Northwestern was heavily centered around math, chemistry, biology, and physics, so I can work with a student on more than one class at a time. I'm a laid back individual, but I like to push my students. I know that every student is able to do well and I really enjoy helping them along their path to success. But being laid back, I am good at relaxing a student and helping point out what is important and what is not." ...

" 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. I then build on that material until the student has mastered the subject. I owe it to my students to be a master of the subject I am teaching and to be more than just adequately prepared for each lesson. I like to prepare much more material than I expect to cover, and I am thrilled when my student gets through more material than I expect." ...

" Part of my everyday routine is using the concepts learned in these subjects to perform my duties. As part of my education and background, I have taught classes at an introductory college level in Biology 101 and 102. I received high marks for engaging and explaining key concepts to my students. I have also tutored friends and family members ranging from high school to medical school. I try to engage students at every step of a problem to ensure that they are not simply memorizing the answers but to ensure that they are understanding the problem at a fundamental level. Most importantly is the fact that I am a patient, understanding and ...

" Needless to say, I have had a lot of experience working with a wide variety of students over the past 7 years, through which I have learned quite a bit about education and have developed my own personal educational philosophy. I truly believe that every student has the ability to achieve success and to master any subject that they set their mind to with the proper mentality and the necessary assistance. I believe in getting to know my students as people and discovering what style(s) of learning have the most impact, then utilizing these strategies in order to achieve success. Positive encouragement is a huge factor as well." ...

" For four semesters at IIT I have served as a teaching assistant for a variety of courses: Geometry for Architects, Introduction to Calculus, and Introduction to Biomedical Engineering. Through this experience I have learned to assess each student's learning style uniquely, and I recognize that no two students are alike. I find that developing a customized lesson allows the student to both grasp the course material and, more importantly, to enjoy it. Currently I am preparing to pursue a Ph.D."

"I can proudly say I've taught math and hard science to all types, from poets to future engineers. I focus on teaching my students to always think for themselves and to come up with their own solutions rather than relying on rote memorization. My goal is that come test time, even if they are initially stumped, the intuition that students have worked so hard to build up will push them in the right direction. In my free time, I devour books, go on cooking adventures, and explore Chicago with my friends.."
