"I then continued on to Syracuse University where I completed my Master's in international relations. I am particularly interested in conflict, crisis, and how related factors and events can influence decisions in an international context. As an undergraduate I was a TA who worked with introductory psychology students as well as students pursuing more specialize courses in neuropsychology and cognitive psychology. 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." ...

"Although I always thought teaching sounded exciting, it was not until I began volunteering in a third grade classroom that I was sure I wanted to pursue education as a career. Since making this decision I have had experience with students of all ages. I taught weekly lessons to 2nd and 4th graders during the first year of my program at Vanderbilt and then student taught in a fifth grade and a kindergarten. Although I enjoy teaching in all subjects, my favorites are language arts/reading, Spanish, and science."

"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. While I expect hard work from a student, I am patient above all and listen before I lecture."

"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. I've always learned by getting the feel of the subject, and that's an experience I hope to share with you or your kids. I'm an undergraduate at Brown University, though I'm currently on leave to work with a non-profit organization here in Chicago." ...

"I have been teaching and tutoring for the past seven years in China and the US, and am currently working on a Masters Degree in teaching Chinese language with the goal of becoming a Chinese professor. I believe that tutoring is the ideal way to learn because it allows for a truly personalized and pressure-free learning experience that will help you build your language skills through natural conversation, activities, and games. Last year I taught 1st, 2nd, and 3rd year level Mandarin courses in the Upper School at the Latin School of Chicago. After graduating from Oberlin College in 2007 I spent two years teaching English at the Shanxi ...

"After spending all day at work or school, who wants to spend the afternoon doing worksheets? My philosophy is that everyone likes learning but needs a little encouragement. If I can break down the math lesson into something manageable and have fun at the same time, the student will be more likely to pick up that book on their own. The best compliment a student gave me was "I feel much more confident speaking English now than when we started." That confidence will make the student a lifelong learner and will transcend into other subjects. I am also an experienced learner! I have a degree in biochemistry and Spanish from the ...

"I am from Manhattan but have been living in the Chicago area for almost 5 years. Ever since I was a little girl, I've had a passion for teaching and for school. I used to line my stuffed animals up and teach them lessons on various books or history on my white board. Fifteen years later, I get to do the real thing. My credentials: I graduated in the top 5 of my high school class and took numerous AP classes as well as the SAT, ACT, and SATII."

"I especially enjoy high-schoolers of every level, but I have tutored students from age 6 to 35! To me, tutoring is about really getting to know each student, their strengths, and those areas of weakness that are coming between them and their highest potential. My specialties are math, essay writing and Spanish. I love algebra because it's so neat and there's always a right answer, and I enjoy helping students realize that it's more straightforward than it seems. I learned Spanish as a second language, and becoming fluent was one of the most exciting things I have ever done." ...
