Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Pre-Calculus tutors in Glencoe, IL
" I have worked with middle school, high school and college students for over five years, and I recently completed my student teaching with the tenth and eleventh grade Geometry and Intermediate Algebra II. I enjoy tutoring students and helping them build confidence in their ability to achieve, both academically and socially. I try to employ a variety of techniques to accommodate the different backgrounds, learning styles, and academic and career goals of the students during teaching. I am constantly inspired by the progress and enthusiasm of the students. During my free time I like to read books, watch movies or paint." ...

"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.." ...

"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, ...

"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.."

"Though I've worked extensively with the ACT, I found myself teaching and tutoring subjects as diverse as Shakespearean writing and calculus to my two younger sisters and many ambitious peers who sought my assistance. During the school day, I'm generally busy with my life coaching practice. I view coaching and tutoring as different means to the same end of helping others grow and achieve even the loftiest goals they set for themselves. It's also given me great practice in patience, listening, and adaptive approaches to problem solving." ...
