"I also helped coach a state-qualifying high-school girls cross-country team. In my graduate career I tutored refugee children who had resettled in the United States. I find that because of my academic background I am easily able to relate to others and help them achieve their goals. At my core I am a problem solver; I find satisfaction in using teamwork to complete tasks that may not have otherwise been achievable."

"I love all history subjects and enjoy working one-on-one with students to help them gain a better understanding of the material. As a teacher, I understand that all students learn differently and that it sometimes takes an additional explanation to help the "light bulb" go on. I also know that working one-on-one with a student can help them gain confidence in the subject and then in the classroom.."

" Whatever is needed, be it micro (grammar or mechanics), macro (essay editing and creative writing), or test prep, I can help students of any age become better readers, writers, and test-takers. This leads to not only short-term perks like better grades and increased test comprehension, but long-term perks such as complete confidence in an increasingly digital world. I graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with an English degree in 2008. When I'm not a teacher, I'm a copywriter, reader, sports watcher, and dog walker.." ...

"While living in California, I often taught middle and high school students as a volunteer tutor for 826 Valencia, a literacy and writing organization. I especially love teaching history and writing. I think the most fun ways to teach and to learn involve working directly with primary source materials and linking the work we're doing to the world we live in. You'll never ask why you need to know something--or if you do, we'll work together to figure out why it's important."

"There I develop curriculum and provide professional development to educators. I very much enjoy my tutoring positions and have found them to be rewarding, both for me and for my students.

"I have also recently completed a teacher certification program at Judson University. I have several years of experience working with students from pre-K to high school in the areas of reading, writing, and language arts, as well as math and ACT/SAT preparation. I have worked with students of varying abilities, including those with learning difficulties and gifted students. I grew up in the Chicago area, but I was born in Ukraine, so I speak Russian fluenty. I also speak Spanish--I learned it in school and still use it to this day with my husband's family." ...

"During my collegiate tenure, I maintained a 3.99 GPA, garnered numerous accolades for literary achievement, received top departmental honors, presented scholarship at various Chicagoland conferences, and became a published author; these efforts all culminated in my June 2012 graduation: summa cum laude, with dual majors in History and African Studies. After graduation, my girlfriend and I moved to Seattle to experience the Pacific Northwest. Chicago was suddenly too big and crowded for our tastes, and we wanted to live in closer proximity to the great outdoors. Since moving, I have continued to pursue educational ...
