" More recent experiences include tutoring friends and college underclassmen in Spanish grammar and conversation. My teaching style is one very focused on detail. I lead a very structured lesson but also find it very important to frequently "check-up" and analyze the progress to make sure my students are both comfortable with my pace and retaining the material. A typical tutoring session with me typically involves as much talking as listening, particularly with my students learning Spanish. I enjoy building a good rapport and working towards goals I have for myself as a tutor, as well as those my students have for themselves.." ...

"Through this experience I have learned to assess each student's learning style uniquely, and I recognize that no two students are alike. I find that developing a customized lesson allows the student to both grasp the course material and, more importantly, to enjoy it. Currently I am preparing to pursue a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering starting in September of this year."

" 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 opportunities. My current projects involve designing and teaching public speaking courses for Wedgwood children, providing volunteer homework support for refugees at the Somali Community Service Coalition, and working with Varsity Tutors. In the future, I hope to obtain my master's and doctorate, work in public education or museum studies, and teach History at the college level, for it is my belief that understanding our actions in the past is essential to ...

"I believe that studying a foreign language can be fun, and does not mean that you have to take those boring grammar and vocabulary classes over and over again. Passion is very important to this process. I like to teach in a way which keeps the students interested and engaged, and help them to be highly self motivated. I have helped many beginner students pass their HSK tests (The standardized test for Chinese language)."

"One of the things I enjoyed most was meeting with these groups of students outside of the classroom to work on their business plans, practice their presentations, and help them work through any challenges and feel confident about their work and preparation for the competitions. I have a variety of teaching and training experiences in different contexts. After receiving my bachelors degree in Business Administration from Truman State University, I joined a team of trainers at a financial services company, Edward Jones. I worked with adult professionals to help them obtain their Series 7 licensure." ...

"My work is focused on instructional methodology, language education, and developmental psychology. I have experience working with students from preschool age to college on subjects including math, language and test preparation (GRE, TOFEL, IELTS ect).My teaching philosophy is that learning makes the most sense and is the most effective when it has a personal relevance and when it is rewarded by progression. I am currently located in the Chicago area and I enjoy light comedy and cooking in my free time.."

"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. The first thing I will try to do when tutoring is find out how YOU learn."

"I do my best to keep lessons fun and interesting by connecting them to a student's interests whenever possible. I believe that one-on-one help is often the best pathway to success, and I enjoy individualizing my lessons to a student's interests and needs. My background is in Linguistics and Communication Disorders, but I have always loved math and science as well. When I'm not tutoring or studying for my own classes, you'll often see me reading, baking, or going for a walk.."

"I can proudly say I've taught math and hard science to all types, from poets to future engineers. I focus on teaching my students to always think for themselves and to come up with their own solutions rather than relying on rote memorization. My goal is that come test time, even if they are initially stumped, the intuition that students have worked so hard to build up will push them in the right direction. In my free time, I devour books, go on cooking adventures, and explore Chicago with my friends.."
