Carefully selected, highly-credentialed PSAT tutors in Lake Forest, IL
"I've worked with high school students for the past 5 years and absolutely love teaching! In my experience, most students already have the knowledge they need to do well. Teaching is really about building confidence and helping a student tie together bits and pieces they already know to answer a problem. Every student is different, and I enjoy the challenge of being able to figure out how to best tailor a session to an individual's learning style.."

"I very much enjoy my tutoring positions and have found them to be rewarding, both for me and for my students. The majority of my clients come to me for ACT test prep, but I have tutored many other subjects, ranging from elementary language arts and SSAT/ISEE prep to Algebra II/Trigonometry and college writing. My goal is to teach my students the strategies, skills, and information necessary to succeed in their classes or on standardized tests.

"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.."

"This has given me great experience seeing what goes into testing students; I know what they should know at various grade levels, I'm familiar with LOTS of pedagogical techniques (and have seen what works and what doesn't), and I've had a lot of experience "leveling" text and lessongs. That means that I know how to adapt a student's in-school curriculum to match their particular ability level and learning styles. I truly believe that the best way to help students learn is to do what works best for them -- if a student is struggling with reading, I try to get to know the student to learn not only the academic troubles he or she is having but also his ...

" My beginning Latin students saw particularly outstanding results, because I was able to teach them the English grammar and mechanics they needed to transition from English to Latin. From my professional experience as a Shakespearean actor and my educational experience as a Shakespearean director, I know that I can explain and enliven classic texts for people of all ages. I have a strong literature background, and I am passionate about tutoring students who struggle to understand or appreciate English literary treasures. I have extensive informal experience editing the written work of my friends and sisters." ...

"Currently I'm a novelist, the head writer for an independent gaming studio, and a freelance carpenter. I've played jazz saxophone for fourteen years and garage punk bass for three.
