" My specialities are writing and SAT prep, although I enjoy working with students on a variety of different subjects, including math. I worked for three years at the Princeton Writing Center, helping students with brainstorming, organization, structure, and revision in academic writing.

" 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 am now working full-time as a tutor/behavior coach with an 8th grade English class on the south side of Chicago. My main interests are English composition and English language/literature. Additionally, I very much enjoy working with students on introductory Economics and high school Mathematics. Finally, my experience working with City Year Chicago has given me a great deal of depth in remedial math, English (writing and reading), and social ...

"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.

"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.."

"It may sound trite, but I deeply enjoy the intellectual and interpersonal challenge of the teaching experience. While I expect hard work from a student, I am patient above all and listen before I lecture.

In my spare time, I run religiously, listen constantly to music, and read."

" In Cincinnati, I worked with Latin students at all levels. 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." ...

" For the past 3 years, I've worked in the educational publishing industry -- in other words, I write text books. 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 ...

"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 have experience tutoring elementary school and middle school age students in all subjects." ...
