Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Languages tutors in Lake Forest, IL
"Although I will not provide answers or a quick and simple fix, I will provide students with guidance and encouragement as they work through problems and learn to apply familiar concepts to unfamiliar situations. I also believe strongly in teaching “to the student,” and therefore adapt my teaching to fit each individual’s needs and learning styles. By pinpointing and addressing students’ weaknesses and creating a comfortable, nurturing environment in which they can learn, I work to help students solidify their knowledge base and learn how to learn. In my free time, I enjoy running, playing piano, baking, and learning about ...

"If a student no longer needs my help, I consider my work a success. I graduated Magna Cum Laude in Diplomacy & World Affairs, with a minor in Chinese. I'm an avid learner and loved my major for the wide range of discplines it includes - political science, economics, history, geography, religion, sociology, and my favorite, foreign language. I speak Mandarin and Portuguese, and began tutoring to support myself while living abroad in China, and later in Brazil."

"I also earned recognition as an excellent teaching assistant for my wonderful work. Thus, I have a great deal of professional experience in teaching students with different backgrounds. Also, I am a native speaker of Mandarin, and have been teaching my American friends Chinese for the past 5 years. I implement different tools, such as poetry, songs, and painting to improve students’ Chinese skills in speaking, listening, reading and writing. I believe that there are no bad students, just bad teachers."

" My philosophy as a tutor is that students know more than they think they do. I like to guide my students through solving problems by using their prior knowledge and experience, and asking questions so that they can participate as much as I do. My favorite thing about tutoring is getting to know my students on an individual basis, and figuring out how they learn best. In my free time, I love being with my family and friends, reading good books, dancing, and exploring the city of Chicago-my new home!."

"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 or writing at any age, and my personal objective is to give students the tools they need to feel confident and proud of their work. In my spare time, I love reading, running, and spending time with my family.." ...

"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." ...
