"I've worked with high school students for the past 5 years and absolutely love teaching! In my experience, most students already have the knowledge they need to do well. Teaching is really about building confidence and helping a student tie together bits and pieces they already know to answer a problem. Every student is different, and I enjoy the challenge of being able to figure out how to best tailor a session to an individual's learning style.."

"Additionally, I've spent over one year as a tutor at the tutoring center at Loyola University Chicago. I enjoy tutoring one-on-one much more than group instructing. I find that my teaching style varies from student to student, however, I often employ the Socratic method, and I am still a believer in old school liberal arts methodologies, namely using your reasoning and wit to derive answers to almost all questions.."

"I believe that hard work and determination can lead to great outcomes, but some students also need to learn how to study. Many test-takers get bogged down in the details and try to memorize every little factoid, making complex subjects unmanageable. I like to break down each subject and consider how each subtopic can be tested. I also prefer focusing on learning concepts, rather than memorizing facts."

" Part of my everyday routine is using the concepts learned in these subjects to perform my duties. As part of my education and background, I have taught classes at an introductory college level in Biology 101 and 102. I received high marks for engaging and explaining key concepts to my students. I have also tutored friends and family members ranging from high school to medical school. I try to engage students at every step of a problem to ensure that they are not simply memorizing the answers but to ensure that they are understanding the problem at a fundamental level. Most importantly is the fact that I am a patient, understanding and ...

"In order to attend one must take the SAT and apply to the school. There I gained a strong background in math and science, but also the humanities, while not thought of due to the name of the school, were also very strong. I am a very good standardized test taker, and know all of the tricks and tips that you need to get ahead. I am very capable at the SAT and ACT as can be seen by my scores, and also am well suited to tutor the MCAT as well as I have taken it with the intention of applying to medical school. I am very easy going and sociable. I have experience tutoring elementary school and middle school age students in all subjects." ...

" During college, I participated in a tutoring program that allowed me to work with high school students in Nashville. I also served as a mentor throughout the program. Most recently, through AmeriCorps, I tutored sixth graders in the Summer Bridge Program at Gillespie Elementary School.

"Over the course of my Junior and Senior years at Messiah I developed several great friendships and had countless conversations through which I helped younger players with the trials encountered by college student-athletes. Additionally, I have experience in a supervisory role at a mosquito control company training new employees and assisting veteran employees to improve their productivity. This experience helped me recognize that different people learn in different ways, and it is often necessary to frame content in several ways to ensure that the concept is being communicated. I have also been a volunteer tutor/mentor with an ...

"I am currently applying to medical schools in the Chicago area. I began tutoring while home on breaks from college by helping my younger sisters with their high school courses and by helping them prepare for the ACT and SAT tests. I didn't become a formal tutor until my senior year of college when my physics professor from the previous year asked me to take up a position as a teaching assistant because of my performance in the class and social nature. I thoroughly enjoyed my teaching experiences and I am looking forward to helping new students as a Varsity tutor.." ...
