"As a tutor, I like to begin with structured strategies for learning concepts and applying them to new tasks. If working on a school or college subject, I will incorporate the students' own classroom texts with my own additional examples or readings. If working for test prep, I would like to work with the student in his or her own test prep book (I will have the same myself) working through specific strategies for each question. My past tutoring and teaching experiences include working with individual college students on English essay writing, Intro Micro- and Macroeconomics, and 4th-5th grade creative writing." ...

"I get excited about tutoring. In the last two years I've tutored everyone from middle school students to adults, on topics ranging from the intuitions of basic arithmetic to how to connect with and describe an author's voice. Behind every topic, a new world is waiting for every student if we can just make things click. I tutor with gestures and jokes, messy diagrams and clean metaphors."

"Hi, I am a recent graduate of Pomona College, in Southern California, who just moved to Chicago. I have extensive experience tutoring and working with youth in general. I have tutored fourth- and fifth-graders in math and peer-edited countless peers' college essays; I have directed youth sports camps and provided support to severely emotionally disturbed high-schoolers. It may sound trite, but I deeply enjoy the intellectual and interpersonal challenge of the teaching experience."

"I've been tutoring in some way or another for almost ten years! I started working with junior high kids in a music/academic summer camp while I was in high school.

"Hi all! I'm a recent math/biology double from the University of Chicago making the transition from South- to North-Sider. Over the past eight years, I've worked with students of every age from 12 to 20, both in Miami and here in Chicago. This has taken the form of summer math enrichment programs where I worked closely with both CPS students and teachers, being a teaching assistant for first-year students at the UofC, and extensive one-on-one tutoring with students from my high school.
