"I tutor multiple levels of math, ACT and SAT prep in Math and English, and Spanish. 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 years as a teacher’s assistant for college freshmen, a workshop teacher at 826 Chicago, and a literacy tutor with at-risk kids in a low-income elementary school in Ohio, I’ve turned students who professed to hate reading and writing into confident and creative writers. I've also helped students excel in history, mathematics and particularly enjoy helping students exceed their own scoring expectations on the SAT. As a graduate of the Oberlin College Creative Writing Program, I believe that every writing assignment, from historical essays to Japanese poetry to science term papers, has the possibility to enthrall and ...

"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.." ...

"In music, I have taught K-12, directed an adult community choir, taught private lessons in voice and piano to students ages 5-40, and sung solo in a jazz band, musicals, and classical concerts. Teaching, whether it be math or music, is something I love doing, especially in a one-on-one environment where students have the opportunity to ask questions and explore and discover without some of the pressure or neglect that can occur in a classroom of many students and only one teacher. One of my favorite phrases is "Oh! I get it now!" and I look for as many ways as possible to help students find that "light-bulb moment." But doing music and math has ...
