"As a tutor, I like to help students learn how to learn and study, not just pass tests. Since early high school, I have tutored both peers and younger students in a variety of subjects.

My areas of expertise include: Spanish, math through Algebra 2, biology, chemistry, physics, English (writing, comprehension and college essay instruction), and test preparation for the GRE, ACT, and SAT." ...

"I've tutored elementary school children for years, between my work in the "Big Brother" program at my high school and my work at 826LA. 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. My skills would best be utilized by either a young child who needs general homework help or a high school student looking for extra support, with an added focus on assistance in writing college essays."

"I have experience with and specialize in SAT tutoring. I teach time management techniques and tricks in addition to the actual material on the test. I go over the types of questions that are most likely to show up on the test, and make sure that students are completely comfortable with them. I customize my tutoring plan to each student's strengths and weaknesses, and hopefully by the time we are done the student will have no weaknesses! ."

" I am a college graduate from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, where I majored in Biochemistry and minored in Chemistry. I went to the Illinois Math and Science Academy, which is a residential high school for gifted students. 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." ...

"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 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 ...

"While I was studying writing at Illinois Wesleyan University, I volunteered as a tutor in elementary schools, junior highs, high schools, and preschools. I've done a lot of work with bilingual (native Spanish-speaking)students. 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." ...

"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. While I expect hard work from a student, I am patient above all and listen before I lecture."

I earned a Master’s of Science in Education in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus on Environmental Education, and I am currently working as the Education Coordinator for a non-profit organization. There I develop curriculum and provide professional development to educators. I very much enjoy my tutoring positions and have found them to be rewarding, both for me and for my students.
