Carefully selected, highly-credentialed SAT tutors in Naperville, IL
"My passion for education comes through in my teaching methods, as I believe that all students have the ability to learn a subject as long as it is presented to them in a way in which they are able to grasp. 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 experience as a tutor, mentor and editor has provided me with the opportunity to help a variety of students, from kindergarteners just learning to read, to high school seniors writing the essays that will gain them access to top-tier universities. In my years as a teacher’s assistant for college freshmen, a workshop teacher at 826 Chicago, and a literacy tutor with at-risk kids in a low-income elementary school in Ohio, I’ve turned students who professed to hate reading and writing into confident and creative writers. I've also helped students excel in history, mathematics and particularly enjoy helping students exceed their own ...

"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.." ...

" My experience ranges from a traditional curriculum at an elite college preparatory school to student-based "discovery learning" in a Chicago public high school to working with adults at one of the City Colleges of Chicago. Because I have worked with these varied approaches to teaching and with these different groups of students, I have the tools to discover YOUR best way to understand the material. My current full-time job applies my teaching skills to real life, as Business Manager of a professional theatre company. I'm looking forward to helping you achieve success!." ...

"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. It may sound trite, but I deeply enjoy the intellectual and interpersonal challenge of the teaching experience. While I expect hard work from a student, I am patient above all and listen before I lecture. I specialize in teaching standardized tests (ACT and SAT I and Subject Tests), math and statistics, writing, French, and economics." ...

"Getting there necessitates taking the LSAT, an exam that is quite different from other standardized tests in that it focuses on a singular skill set: formal logic. But learning about the logical doesn't always come across as logical. 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)." ...

"I do my best to keep lessons fun and interesting by connecting them to a student's interests whenever possible. I believe that one-on-one help is often the best pathway to success, and I enjoy individualizing my lessons to a student's interests and needs. My background is in Linguistics and Communication Disorders, but I have always loved math and science as well. When I'm not tutoring or studying for my own classes, you'll often see me reading, baking, or going for a walk.."

"Since graduation, I have taught English in France, worked with adults learning English as a Second Language, and tutored elementary, middle, and high school students in a wide variety of subjects, including: math, science, reading, English, and ACT/SAT test preparation. I am a firm believer in problem-based learning, and encourage students to ask questions and think for themselves. Although I will not provide answers or a quick and simple fix, I will provide students with guidance and encouragement as they work through problems and learn to apply familiar concepts to unfamiliar situations. I also believe strongly in teaching “to ...

"I earned a Master’s of Science in Education in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus on Environmental Education, and I am currently working as the Education Coordinator for a non-profit organization. There I develop curriculum and provide professional development to educators. I very much enjoy my tutoring positions and have found them to be rewarding, both for me and for my students. The majority of my clients come to me for ACT test prep, but I have tutored many other subjects, ranging from elementary language arts and SSAT/ISEE prep to Algebra II/Trigonometry and college writing. My goal is to teach my students the strategies, ...

" 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 ...
