Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Organic Chemistry tutors in Highland Park, IL
"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. I am also able to tutor high school students in a variety of subjects, as well as college ...

"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.."

" Outside of that I’ve helped students in genetics, general biology, biochemistry, biophysics and a list of other classes. I like to engage students in the learning process and give them multiple perspectives on a given topic. I often ask tricky questions to test what confuses the student or what details they tend to overlook. I also like to use colorful pens, and that’s always a plus!."

"Problems like science anxiety and "bad teacher syndrome" are my specialty. I can also help good students become great students and get into top tier universities. I have found that what I truly love is helping others to succeed in any way that I can. I believe that anyone can understand science if it is explained in a way that is meaningful. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my wife, playing with my dogs and working on old cars and Harleys.."

"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.." ...

" My Engineering curriculum at Northwestern was heavily centered around math, chemistry, biology, and physics, so I can work with a student on more than one class at a time. I'm a laid back individual, but I like to push my students. I know that every student is able to do well and I really enjoy helping them along their path to success. But being laid back, I am good at relaxing a student and helping point out what is important and what is not. In my free time, I enjoy writing music."

"I can proudly say I've taught math and hard science to all types, from poets to future engineers. I focus on teaching my students to always think for themselves and to come up with their own solutions rather than relying on rote memorization. My goal is that come test time, even if they are initially stumped, the intuition that students have worked so hard to build up will push them in the right direction. In my free time, I devour books, go on cooking adventures, and explore Chicago with my friends.."

"If I can get a student genuinely interested in the subject they are studying, then I am sure the better grades and test scores will follow. I am an unashamed Biology nerd, and I love all of Science in general. I have learned so much about the world and how amazing life is through these subjects and I want to pass that nerdiness onto others. I am also a big music nerd, and I love all styles of music- Pop/rock, classical, and opera included."

"The best compliment a student gave me was "I feel much more confident speaking English now than when we started." That confidence will make the student a lifelong learner and will transcend into other subjects. I am also an experienced learner! I have a degree in biochemistry and Spanish from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. This means I am qualified to teach biology, chemistry, algebra, geometry, and Spanish. I am currently a nursing student at Loyola University Chicago, so anatomy and physiology are my current life.." ...
