"I can remember being a student in elementary school and having those moments of feeling completely and utterly lost. Some of the best academic memories I have are of teachers who really took the time to break down a subject until I really felt confident about it. I would like my students to be able to walk away from tutoring with similar positive experiences. I am a college graduate with a degree in both French and Spanish literature and languages."

"I'm an English & Journalism major at Loyola University Chicago with a passion for language. My clients have ranged from elementary school students to adults, and I can help with everything from phonics to college admissions essays. I'm also certified fluent in both French and Spanish and spent last semester in Paris, France. I'm a fun, engaging teacher with a dynamic personal energy, and one of my greatest strengths is generating enthusiasm in even the most reluctant students. I don't see why grammar lessons can't be games and punctuation worksheets can't make you laugh! I understand how discouraging it can be to struggle with reading ...

"Hi, I am a recent graduate of Pomona College, in Southern California, who just moved to Chicago. I have extensive experience tutoring and working with youth in general. I have tutored fourth- and fifth-graders in math and peer-edited countless peers' college essays; I have directed youth sports camps and provided support to severely emotionally disturbed high-schoolers. It may sound trite, but I deeply enjoy the intellectual and interpersonal challenge of the teaching experience."

"I get excited about tutoring. In the last two years I've tutored everyone from middle school students to adults, on topics ranging from the intuitions of basic arithmetic to how to connect with and describe an author's voice. Behind every topic, a new world is waiting for every student if we can just make things click. I tutor with gestures and jokes, messy diagrams and clean metaphors."

"Hello! My name is Noor and I am very excited about working with Varsity Tutors. I lived in Brazil for six months where I taught English to elementary school kids, and after that experience, I realized that teaching and tutoring give you some of the best feelings you could ever have. Watching someone learn, understand, and grow and knowing that you've helped in that process is incredibly fulfilling. My teaching style is very easy to work with."

"I tutored students in French for three years at Carthage College. I realized that there is a deeper structure to the French language that isn't clearly taught in French classes. The basic structure of the French language is taught later than it needs to be. I also learned that many of the trickier concepts are not always explained as clearly as they need to be for students, who often have to work on all of these concepts themselves. Since then, I've tried to find an easy and concise way of explaining patterns and rules in French that make sense." ...

"Learning has always been a passion of mine, and I strive to impart that passion to my students. I don't train my students to recite facts and figures. Rather, I encourage them to become self-motivated learners by creating a positive experience that is tailored to each individual. My lesson plans are thus very flexible, and designed with the likes and interests of the student in mind."

"As a tutor and teacher, it is always my goal to present material as clearly as possible and, whenever possible, have students think out for themselves what the problem at hand is and what possible solutions are. I have worked with a wide variety of students including children and adults, native and nonnative speakers, with various goals for improving their English language abilities, foreign language, math skills and other challenges. I hope students find me approachable and that I will work hard to help them get through any obstacles in the topic they choose to have me teach or tutor them. I certainly can put myself in the place of others, ...
