"I am a philosophy of religions M.A. student at the University of Chicago, and I've been living in the Chicago area for about five years. I work with students for both ACT prep and academic support. As a philosopher, I spend a lot of time breaking down complex ideas into simple, digestible parts; I'm pretty good at it, and I think it makes me a better tutor. I've worked with the whole spectrum of students, from sixth graders through college seniors, including students with disabilities."

"I received my Bachelor of Science in European history and theatre from Northwestern University. Both of my parents taught high school social studies, so you might say teaching runs in the family! I believe that every student has the capability to achieve academically, but that, sometimes, traditional classroom instruction isn't quite enough to lead each student to his or her potential. Working one-on-one with a student allows me to target areas of weakness, while increasing his confidence in his ability to achieve. Standardized testing isn't particularly fun, but getting into the college of your dreams is, and conquering the SAT ...
