Carefully selected, highly-credentialed SAT tutors in Chicago, IL
" My philosophy as a tutor is that students know more than they think they do. I like to guide my students through solving problems by using their prior knowledge and experience, and asking questions so that they can participate as much as I do. My favorite thing about tutoring is getting to know my students on an individual basis, and figuring out how they learn best. In my free time, I love being with my family and friends, reading good books, dancing, and exploring the city of Chicago-my new home!."

" During the school day, I'm generally busy with my life coaching practice. I view coaching and tutoring as different means to the same end of helping others grow and achieve even the loftiest goals they set for themselves.
