" My experience ranges from a traditional curriculum at an elite college preparatory school to student-based "discovery learning" in a Chicago public high school to working with adults at one of the City Colleges of Chicago. Because I have worked with these varied approaches to teaching and with these different groups of students, I have the tools to discover YOUR best way to understand the material. My current full-time job applies my teaching skills to real life, as Business Manager of a professional theatre company. I'm looking forward to helping you achieve success!." ...

"I am currently pursuing a Master's of Education in math at Northwestern University, but my passion for learning and education long precedes my formal degree. Prior to returning to school, I worked in management consulting, where I often needed to explain complex quantitative analysis to clients unfamiliar with the math; this helped me develop the ability to understand and explain various approaches to quantitative concepts, which in turn enables me to identify and address causes of confusion. I love working with students in a one-on-one setting that allows me to adapt my explanations to fit a student's individual needs.." ...
