"...As my BA hints, I have earned a liberal arts education at a rigorous and stimulating institution, where critical thinking is the first priority. I believe your student will benefit as I have from learning how to approach any problem. This flexibility is, in my opinion, much more useful than memorizing superficial solution procedures often taught in schools..."

"...I have taken, and succeeded in, a broad range of Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) classes, and am familiar with the latest formats, question varieties, and scoring guidelines of these standardized tests, along with the SAT. My teaching philosophy is to go beyond "teaching to the test".

"Some subjects/topics can be difficult, but sometimes looking at the problem in a different way makes the material clearer and easier. My basic learning and teaching philosophy has always been that the best way to handle difficult material is to take your head off the page and to try to reframe the question in a different way. Coming to a problem - whether it be an essay, a math question, or a writing exercise - with a different frame of mind can help make learning fun and rewarding..."

"Hi all! I'm a recent math/biology double from the University of Chicago making the transition from South- to North-Sider. Over the past eight years, I've worked with students of every age from 12 to 20, both in Miami and here in Chicago. This has taken the form of summer math enrichment programs where I worked closely with both CPS students and teachers, being a teaching assistant for first-year students at the UofC, and extensive one-on-one tutoring with students from my high school. 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..."
