Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Physiology tutors in Downers Grove, IL
" I can help with almost all levels of science from grade school to college. I'm not a dull, "science geek". 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.." ...

"I made sure I was always available to talk to younger players about issues both on and off the field. 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. This experience helped me recognize that different people learn in different ways, and it is often necessary to frame content in several ways to ...

" Science topics have included honors biology, biology I, biology II, anatomy & physiology, forensics, environmental science, earth science, physics, algebra and associated labs. I feel that my perspective on math and science is well grounded from 15 years as an engineer with GE, Kawasaki and Zeon Chemicals in several different capacities in manufacturing, design and business development. Working with students to 'get the light bulb to turn on' is very rewarding and keeps me returning to the classroom. One-on-one tutoring has even greater rewards for the student, and is essential to maintaining their educational momentum. I ...

" My tutoring style includes relating processes and scientific ideas to the everyday life of the individual. This not only sparks interest and makes learning easier, but also creates an easy way for students to remember scientific ideas. Additionally, after taking the prerequisites for medical school at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, I understand that science courses often require students to learn what seems to be an overwhelming number of facts and details. Through personal experience, I have developed several ways to manage these science course loads and to learn a great deal of information in a short amount of ...

"I went to the Illinois Math and Science Academy, which is a residential high school for gifted students. In order to attend one must take the SAT and apply to the school. 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 am particularly interested in conflict, crisis, and how related factors and events can influence decisions in an international context. As an undergraduate I was a TA who worked with introductory psychology students as well as students pursuing more specialize courses in neuropsychology and cognitive psychology. I also helped coach a state-qualifying high-school girls cross-country team. In my graduate career I tutored refugee children who had resettled in the United States. I find that because of my academic background I am easily able to relate to others and help them achieve their goals." ...

"I've performed well on multiple standardized tests, including the MCAT and USMLE Step 1 and 2ck, and I would like to share my strategies to help more students succeed. I believe that hard work and determination can lead to great outcomes, but some students also need to learn how to study. Many test-takers get bogged down in the details and try to memorize every little factoid, making complex subjects unmanageable. I like to break down each subject and consider how each subtopic can be tested."

"I was a teaching assistant there for several Biology classes for over two years, and I've taught students both in a classroom setting and one-on-one. I always try to get students to be inspired by the material they are studying, because I think that is the best way to learn it. 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 am also a certified MCAT/ACT instructor. 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.."

"I LOVE science, and its applications with math, and am very excited to be helping students in these fields! In my free time, I play in three softball leagues and love watching professional sports. I love running for exercise, and in 2011 ran an 8k, a 15k, 3 half marathons, and the Chicago Marathon. I look forward to meeting you!."
