"I'm also certified fluent in both French and Spanish and spent last semester in Paris, France. I'm a fun, engaging teacher with a dynamic personal energy, and one of my greatest strengths is generating enthusiasm in even the most reluctant students. I don't see why grammar lessons can't be games and punctuation worksheets can't make you laugh! I understand how discouraging it can be to struggle with reading or writing at any age, and my personal objective is to give students the tools they need to feel confident and proud of their work. In my spare time, I love reading, running, and spending time with my family.." ...

"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.

"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.
