" My specialities are writing and SAT prep, although I enjoy working with students on a variety of different subjects, including math. I worked for three years at the Princeton Writing Center, helping students with brainstorming, organization, structure, and revision in academic writing. I also worked on SAT prep and college applications with high school students for Let's Get Ready, a nonprofit organization. I am excited to meet new students in Chicago! I excel at listening to student's needs and creatively finding a plan to meet them.." ...

" That was not without it's challenges initially, however. Due to my weak academic background from high school, I spent my first year and summer at school catching up to the typical physics program, and had to spend extra time learning the advanced mathematical techniques needed to succeed in the program. Towards the end of my four years, I had a chance to explore other areas I was interested in, such as theater design, music theory, and fencing. When I finished my BA program, I tried my hand at research. I spent a year working on a project with Fermilab working on locating the Higgs boson." ...

"I'm very familiar with US and Comparative Government due to having worked as an outliner for the AP books. Teaching is a personal endeavor and a necessary passion in my particular field. On one hand, science is a small community and relies on personal, one-on-one apprenticeship in order to train the next generation of researchers and explorers. On the other hand, learning science (learning anything, in fact) is best done with context in mind; if you can sufficiently teach someone, especially a layperson, the subject matter that you're studying, then you know that you got it! I've been teaching for five years not only because it's helpful ...

"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. That means that I know how to adapt a student's in-school curriculum to match their particular ability level and learning styles. I truly believe that the best way to help students learn is to do what works best for them -- if a student is struggling with reading, I try to get to know the student to learn not only the academic troubles he or she is having but also his ...

" There I studied Physics with a specialization in Astrophysics. I was very involved in the student physics organizations, published several papers about gamma rays, and traveled to South America to work on experiments. I then went to graduate school at Northwestern University, where I received my Master's Degree in Learning Sciences (which is like a degree in Education with an emphasis on public policy.) I focused mostly on better teaching practices outside the classroom, utilizing technology to teach, and getting girls interested in math and science. I have an informal, friendly teaching style. I like to show students that they CAN ...

"I've always learned by getting the feel of the subject, and that's an experience I hope to share with you or your kids. I'm an undergraduate at Brown University, though I'm currently on leave to work with a non-profit organization here in Chicago. My college search is not yet a distant memory, making me a great resource for college application guidance, especially when it comes to fine-tuning or drafting personal essays.

"I love helping students achieve their highest potential and seeing their hard work come to fruition. Because of my strong science background, I am very capable of tutoring mathematics and the sciences. I can also help students with both ACT and SAT, having studied for both during my time in high school. I hope to eventually attend medical school and become a physician."

" That's where I can help fill the void and facilitate the learning process, making what may seem like a daunting task much more manageable and conquerable. Quite frankly, the LSAT is a test that everyone could score perfectly on, given an extra five minutes per section (which no matter how hard you may wish for while taking the test will never happen, sadly enough). The key is building practical strategies that allow the test taker to efficiently manage time all while excelling in Logical Reasoning, Logic Games, and Reading Comprehension. Aside from tutoring the LSAT, I am also available to teach high school standardized tests and to aid in ...
