Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Middle School Math tutors in Naperville, IL
" In high school I began tutoring my peers and soon began tutoring for local non-profit organizations including The Education Center in Naperville, the Student Opportunities for After-school Resources program (S.O.A.R.) in Champaign, along with other programs.

"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, as I have in the past relied on tutors to get me through some tough topics. As for other interests outside tutoring, I am very interested in languages and linguistics, as I currently teach graduate and undergraduate linguistics at Northeastern Illinois University. Outside my day job, I run and bike, and I'm interested in astronomy, nature, history and Shakespeare!." ...

"I was a Small Business Development volunteer, and taught Entrepreneurship and Life Skills courses to high school students. Each year, the students form small groups, create their own businesses and participate in competitions on a local, regional, and national level. One of the things I enjoyed most was meeting with these groups of students outside of the classroom to work on their business plans, practice their presentations, and help them work through any challenges and feel confident about their work and preparation for the competitions. I have a variety of teaching and training experiences in different contexts." ...

"I am confident I can do this. With a patient, yet persistent style, I am certain I can be of assistance to you. I have been practicing law since I passed the bar in 2006, but am back in school to finish up my biology degree so that I can become a Patent Attorney. Before becoming a lawyer I aspired to be an elementary school teacher and do have a teaching background. I minored in elementary education in college, student taught during my last semester, and also worked as a teacher's aide for our local Special School District."

"My experience as a tutor, mentor and editor has provided me with the opportunity to help a variety of students, from kindergarteners just learning to read, to high school seniors writing the essays that will gain them access to top-tier universities. 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 ...
