A photo of Eli who is one of our History tutors in Chicago, IL
"... I worked for several years with another tutoring firm, focusing exclusively on ACT and SAT test prep (ages young as 7th/8th grade through juniors and seniors in high school). I love working with primary and secondary school students on preparing for these tests and helping to remove some of the anxiety that comes with them! My standardized test specialty is anything pertaining to reading comprehension and writing, but find that I have the most fun working with students struggling on the essay portions of these exams. Writing is another love of mine and I love sharing it! My tutoring philosophy with test prep is that by working with a combination of the student's innate aptitudes, using learned test-taking strategies and "polishing" problematic subject areas, we can universally achieve success..."

A photo of Ryan who is one of our History tutors in Chicago, IL
"...There are different ways to teach different people, and I seem to have a knack for finding the proper style for each client. I try to be as interactive as possible, can be sarcastic and also serious, and make the student want to learn the subject matter in which he or she is struggling. I am very good at explaining things so that they stick! One skill that I think is crucial for students to succeed in school at any level and throughout adulthood is the ability to think critically..."
