"I have a passion for working with children and especially enjoy the moment when new learning "clicks" with a student. I love tutoring because it allows me to spend one on one time with students.

"I am currently pursuing a Master's of Education in math at Northwestern University, but my passion for learning and education long precedes my formal degree. Prior to returning to school, I worked in management consulting, where I often needed to explain complex quantitative analysis to clients unfamiliar with the math; this helped me develop the ability to understand and explain various approaches to quantitative concepts, which in turn enables me to identify and address causes of confusion. I love working with students in a one-on-one setting that allows me to adapt my explanations to fit a student's individual needs.." ...

" I recently relocated to Chicago from Cincinnati, OH, where I was a preferred Latin tutor at a high school that consistently ranks in U.S. News' and Newsweek's lists of top 100 high schools in the nation. In Cincinnati, I worked with Latin students at all levels. My beginning Latin students saw particularly outstanding results, because I was able to teach them the English grammar and mechanics they needed to transition from English to Latin."

"One part of teaching is opening students' minds to new ideas, and as a tutor, I try to encourage students to look at problems from a different perspective, breaking them down into smaller parts to better understand the whole. At the same time I think it is important to know and incorporate a student's individual style of learning. I've lived in Austria and Spain for four years where I taught English in a local school and language academy. Mainly I worked with high school students and adults, but outside of schools I have worked with children of all ages." ...

"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.." ...
