Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Middle School Math tutors in Chicago, IL
" 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 led laboratories as well as a discussion period to go over homework questions. Being a lifelong student of math and science, I think I have a strong understanding of students' frustrations with the subjects having experienced many of them myself at one point or another. I can provide a fresh perspective to students and help them view problems in different ways that teachers may not have the time to do. ."

" I incorporate inferential thinking and logic into all of my tutoring sessions in order to give my students practice with skills that they will need throughout their lives.

Working with a tutor is a great way to learn how!."

In addition, for the last nine years or so, I have studied Spanish. Since freshman year of high school, I have studied Spanish each year, building on the foundation I built in the previous year.

"My teaching experience ranges from mentoring children ages 3-5 years old in developing their language and literacy skills, to tutoring college students who are tackling tough chemistry topics, and all ages in between. Not every student learns the same way, so I introduce material in different ways until it becomes relatable to the student. Enthusiasm and encouragement are important in order to keep students engaged and interested, and these are the tools I use to teach subjects that are often seen as difficult and frustrating to understand.." ...
