Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Geometry tutors in Lake Forest, IL
" That means I know calculus inside and out, and I especially what it means in real world terms. Additionally, I've worked with students from high school through college on calculus, physics, and introductory economics, and have developed an appreciation for different styles of learning. Math is the language the universe speaks, and I'm very excited to learn about that as a physicist. As a tutor, I hope I can share some of that enthusiasm with you.."

"The best compliment a student gave me was "I feel much more confident speaking English now than when we started." That confidence will make the student a lifelong learner and will transcend into other subjects. I am also an experienced learner! I have a degree in biochemistry and Spanish from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. This means I am qualified to teach biology, chemistry, algebra, geometry, and Spanish. I am currently a nursing student at Loyola University Chicago, so anatomy and physiology are my current life.." ...

"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." ...

"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."

" This passion means knowing the material well and, most important of all, caring about the student and putting their needs and feelings first. Mathematics and writing are two skills needed more and more, as the world becomes more technologically advanced, and as the economy demands more creativity and self-expression. It is my pleasure to help students prepare!."

" For the past two years I taught mathematics at the middle and high school level as a Teach For America corp member in the Dallas Independent School District. I know that the confidence that a student receives when they finally understand a concept that has alluded them is powerful enough to positively impact them in all arenas of their life, not just in school. Confidence in your own ability is a powerful thing! I am excited to be part of the Varsity Tutors program and to continue teaching and inspiring through education!."

" Because of my interest in learning, in addition to courses in physics, I have taken courses in a wide variety of subjects including chemistry, psychology and biology. It is also my interest in learning that makes tutoring something I enjoy doing. As an undergraduate I spent time tutoring other students in several subject areas, including physics, chemistry, biology and math. Knowing that I helped someone have a better understanding of a subject is very rewarding."

" Other than tutoring, my interests include hiking, reading, and following the Bulls. My previous experience includes tutoring other students in courses I had previously taken while in college. Presently, I volunteer at a home for at-risk teens and help with interview skills, developing resumes, and filling out applications. Also, I substitute teach at a Catholic middle school in the West Suburbs. When tutoring, I believe it's important to stress understanding the concepts that can lead to true subject mastery. Often, these are touched upon in the classroom, where there simply isn't enough time to digest the ideas fully." ...
