Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Physics tutors in Chicago, IL
"Working one-on-one with a student is a great opportunity to really focus on the individual's academic needs or talents, and allows the tutor to be able to provide exactly what the student needs to progress in his or her academic career. I have taught for University of Maryland University College for the past two years in Greece. I teach members of the US Navy, and I have found it one of the most challenging and exciting experiences in my academic career. Students in my classrooms often have varying educational backgrounds, so I have had to modify the curriculum so that it fit all students, regardless of their academic level." ...

" In graduate school I was a teaching assistant for an introductory Physics class for one semester. 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 have a strong understanding and passion for math and science, and I love to share that enthusiasm with students. According to various statistics of the Chicago land area, students find subjects in math and science to be the most difficult and therefore the least interesting. There are a wide variety of techniques to teach but the key is discovering the strategies each student learns best. Here is where the schoolteacher can sometimes come up short and where I can help."

Tutoring Subjects:Biology, Physics, Algebra
"I will pursue a PhD in Chemistry. I am a very logical and rational person, and I believe that is reflected in how I teach my students. I do my best to have students understand concepts rather than just memorizing them. Although learning process may be more difficult, problems will become much easier in the long run."

"I use both analytical as well as graphical methods or a combination of the two as needed to cater to each student. Having both an Engineering and Architecture background, I am able to explain difficult concepts to either a left or right-brained student, verbally or with visual representations. I am also great at getting students excited about the subject they are learning by relating it to something relevant to them.."

"I believe everyone has the capacity to learn; you just have to find the way that fits your personality. I LOVE seeing people grow and succeed! In my spare time, I enjoy playing soccer or running (weather permitting). I can be found relaxing at the piano or with my flute, and look forward to learning even more musical instruments. Some day, I hope to travel around the world and experience as many different cultures as I can!."

" Because of my interest in learning, in addition to courses in physics, I have taken courses in a wide variety of subjects including chemistry, psychology and biology. It is also my interest in learning that makes tutoring something I enjoy doing. As an undergraduate I spent time tutoring other students in several subject areas, including physics, chemistry, biology and math. Knowing that I helped someone have a better understanding of a subject is very rewarding."

"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.." ...

" During high school, I tutored other high school students in Chemistry and Calculus, and the students I tutored excelled in their classes, thanking me at the end of the year. At Northwestern, I was a Gateway Science Workshop facilitator in Calculus, leading other undergraduates in a small-group setting through worksheets in order to solidify their grasp of difficult Calculus concepts. My students in this program wrote rave reviews to my director, who personally congratulated me on my diligence and helpfulness. All of my students did very well in their Calculus classes, and some even became fellow facilitators." ...

" There I studied Physics with a specialization in Astrophysics. I was very involved in the student physics organizations, published several papers about gamma rays, and traveled to South America to work on experiments. I then went to graduate school at Northwestern University, where I received my Master's Degree in Learning Sciences (which is like a degree in Education with an emphasis on public policy.) I focused mostly on better teaching practices outside the classroom, utilizing technology to teach, and getting girls interested in math and science. I have an informal, friendly teaching style. I like to show students that they CAN ...
