"This has taken the form of summer math enrichment programs where I worked closely with both CPS students and teachers, being a teaching assistant for first-year students at the UofC, and extensive one-on-one tutoring with students from my high school. 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 ...

"I majored in both Classics Studies and German, with a minor in English. I've been studying Latin since I was a freshman in high school, and I love it. I tutored in college, and I have three years experience as a teaching assistant, so I know what college professors are looking for from their students' papers. My approach to tutoring follows the idea of "if you teach a man to fish..." My goal is to teach by helping students come to the correct conclusion on their own, whether that pertains to figuring out the Latin subjunctive, the German use of cases, or writing a decent thesis statement in their mother tongue." ...

"I studied theater at an urban, performing-arts high school before moving to Los Angeles to pursue a career as a screenwriter and a film and television actor. After a two year sojourn, I returned to the Midwest to attend college at DePaul University, where I worked as a tutor, mentor, and assistant teacher at the University Center for Writing-based Learning. 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 ...

"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." ...

" My primary tutoring experience comes from my years working as a peer consultant at my school's Writing Center. I assisted other students in their own writing processes and helped them to discover ways to improve their thesis statements, organize their arguments, and convey their points in a formal, academic, but also unique way. Rather than just telling them the answers, I prefer to guide the student to come up with the best changes to improve their writing. No one can learn how to write when someone just tells you what to say."

"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 like to see what the students know first, then work with them in a way that builds upon their strengths while tackling their weaknesses, so that they never feel left behind or confused." ...
