"I use both analytical as well as graphical methods or a combination of the two as needed to cater to each student. Having both an Engineering and Architecture background, I am able to explain difficult concepts to either a left or right-brained student, verbally or with visual representations. I am also great at getting students excited about the subject they are learning by relating it to something relevant to them.."

"My teacher instilled in me the firm belief that the past shapes the present, and that those who understand history have the power to shape the future. Literature has always been a close second-favorite; I'm an avid reader of fiction both classic and contemporary, and I hope to someday publish a novel of my own. Outside of education, I'm an amateur actor and guitarist/vocalist, and I maintain a close relationship with my alma mater's theater program. While I enjoy traveling (my passport has stamps from the UK and France, and needs more), I love Chicago, and teaching and performing help keep my head up when the White Sox inevitably break my ...

" 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 am currently applying to medical schools in the Chicago area. I began tutoring while home on breaks from college by helping my younger sisters with their high school courses and by helping them prepare for the ACT and SAT tests. I didn't become a formal tutor until my senior year of college when my physics professor from the previous year asked me to take up a position as a teaching assistant because of my performance in the class and social nature. I thoroughly enjoyed my teaching experiences and I am looking forward to helping new students as a Varsity tutor.." ...

"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 ...

"I learned Spanish as a second language, and becoming fluent was one of the most exciting things I have ever done. Helping beginners to feel comfortable with the language is very rewarding. Last, I have worked with so many students who have great ideas, but struggle to write them down effectively in the ways that teachers, tests and colleges require. I love to help students represent themselves and their ideas well through essay-writing, and I focus especially on ACT, SAT and college applications.."

" In 2006 I was one of approximately 150 in the inaugural class of Chicago Teaching Fellows, a cohort of individuals who sought accelerated alternative teaching certification through a joint program between Chicago Public Schools and National Louis University. After an intensive summer workshop, I taught high school mathematics full time for two years at Chicago Discovery Academy, my courseload included Honors Algebra I and Honors Geometry, AP Calculus, Algebra I, and a formal preparation course for juniors taking the PSAE (which includes, among other components, ths ACT). I thoroughly enjoy the rewarding experiences I have had ...

" 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 ...

"There I gained a strong background in math and science, but also the humanities, while not thought of due to the name of the school, were also very strong. I am a very good standardized test taker, and know all of the tricks and tips that you need to get ahead. I am very capable at the SAT and ACT as can be seen by my scores, and also am well suited to tutor the MCAT as well as I have taken it with the intention of applying to medical school. I am very easy going and sociable. I have experience tutoring elementary school and middle school age students in all subjects. I am also able to tutor high school students in a variety of subjects, as well as college ...

"I am now working full-time as a tutor/behavior coach with an 8th grade English class on the south side of Chicago. My main interests are English composition and English language/literature. Additionally, I very much enjoy working with students on introductory Economics and high school Mathematics. Finally, my experience working with City Year Chicago has given me a great deal of depth in remedial math, English (writing and reading), and social studies.."
