"Hi! I'm Anne, and I'm currently a graduate student studying Renaissance literature. I'm drawn to that period because it was the start of English literature as we know it--the printing press was just beginning to take off, commercial theaters were opening for the first time, and suddenly there was a huge demand for fiction. Authors hadn't written on this scale before, and so they were incredibly inventive (and more than a little strange)--they could mix fantasy, romance, serious religious allegory, political satire, and crude humor, for example, into one very entertaining book.

"I am a licensed Illinois lawyer that lives here in Chicago. I obtained my law degree from the Indiana University Maurer School of Law in Bloomington, Indiana. Prior to law school, I earned my bachelor's degree in Bioengineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and worked as a medical equipment technician during my semester breaks.

"As a tutor and teacher, it is always my goal to present material as clearly as possible and, whenever possible, have students think out for themselves what the problem at hand is and what possible solutions are. I have worked with a wide variety of students including children and adults, native and nonnative speakers, with various goals for improving their English language abilities, foreign language, math skills and other challenges. I hope students find me approachable and that I will work hard to help them get through any obstacles in the topic they choose to have me teach or tutor them. I certainly can put myself in the place of others, ...

"I got into teaching because of my own positive learning experience and my love of knowledge. I have tutored high school, junior high and elementary school students in math and physics for nearly 10 years. I am enthusiastic about my job and I love having the ability to help students in their academic careers, and to be able to instill the same enthusiasm I have about science into my students. Working one-on-one with a student is a great opportunity to really focus on the individual's academic needs or talents, and allows the tutor to be able to provide exactly what the student needs to progress in his or her academic career." ...

"I'm a recent graduate of Northwestern University, and I have been tutoring both as a job and as a volunteer for many years. 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 will share with students many tips and strategies that will not only help them save time on the test day, but also ultimately improve their scores.

"I've been tutoring in some way or another for almost ten years! I started working with junior high kids in a music/academic summer camp while I was in high school. While I was studying writing at Illinois Wesleyan University, I volunteered as a tutor in elementary schools, junior highs, high schools, and preschools. I've done a lot of work with bilingual (native Spanish-speaking)students. For the past 3 years, I've worked in the educational publishing industry -- in other words, I write text books."
