Carefully selected, highly-credentialed SAT Math 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!."

"Most recently, I tutored two brothers, in the 4th and 5th grade respectively, in math. I also volunteer weekly as a mentor to a 4th grade girl at the Evanston YMCA, and have extensive babysitting experience. My experiences tutoring students of various ages, needs, and levels of ability have impressed upon me the importance of tailoring teaching methods to the particular student.

" 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. It's also given me great practice in patience, listening, and adaptive approaches to problem solving. When I'm not helping students live out their dreams, I like to run."
