Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Pre-Calculus tutors in Lombard, IL
"I have also tutored general chemistry. In addition, I worked as the Sports Editor for the Chicago Flame Newspaper where I was able to spend much time practicing my writing skills. When teaching I like to provoke students into answering their own questions by leading them towards the answer. I have worked in a Human Memory and Cognition Laboratory at UIC and found that when students are able to create their own connections in memory learning can be much more beneficial and persist for much longer."

" 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 have experience with teaching in South Dakota, Wyoming, Kansas, and a DoDD's school. My student teaching experience was in England in a DoDD's school. I taught Geometry and Algebra I. I enjoyed the classes where I was able to teach students in a more one-on-one environment. After graduating, I got a job as a high school Mathematics teacher in a small town in Wyoming. I taught 8th grade Math, Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Pre-calculus, and a senior level Math."

"I have a great passion for learning, and my goal is to instill that same passion in my students. I graduated from Purdue University and have experience tutoring there for all four years, as well as a year of tutoring at Illinois Central College upon graduating from Purdue. My style involves trying to engage students as much as possible with the material, and fostering a fun learning environment through my sense of humor and positive reinforcement to build confidence. My favorite subjects are Science, specifically Chemistry and Physics, as well as anything involving Math. I hope that you'll consider me and that we can enjoy learning ...

" For four semesters at IIT I have served as a teaching assistant for a variety of courses: Geometry for Architects, Introduction to Calculus, and Introduction to Biomedical Engineering. Through this experience I have learned to assess each student's learning style uniquely, and I recognize that no two students are alike. I find that developing a customized lesson allows the student to both grasp the course material and, more importantly, to enjoy it. Currently I am preparing to pursue a Ph.D."

"While I enjoyed both one-on-one tutoring and teaching a large class, I enjoy small groups the most. With a small group, I am able to encourage the students to not only find the answers themselves, but also allow some students to help others. In addition to strengthening their grasp on the material, it also creates connections for personal study groups. In terms of mathematical interests, I'm personally most interested in upper level algebra and number theory, but I enjoy tutoring all areas of mathematics. I'm an avid lover of board and card games, especially the mathematical strategies behind them." ...

" 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 ...
