Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Physics tutors in Lombard, IL
"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."

"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.."

"I have also studied literature, specifically post-modern American, British Renaissance, and poetry throughout my IB high school and college years. I'm very familiar with US and Comparative Government due to having worked as an outliner for the AP books. Teaching is a personal endeavor and a necessary passion in my particular field. On one hand, science is a small community and relies on personal, one-on-one apprenticeship in order to train the next generation of researchers and explorers. On the other hand, learning science (learning anything, in fact) is best done with context in mind; if you can sufficiently teach someone, ...

"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.

I have also been a volunteer tutor/mentor with an ...

"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!."
