" When I teach a math problem, I try to make sure my students understand not only how to solve the problem, but also how to explain the principles and the logic behind the solution. That way they can safely and confidently approach novel problems on their own. Finally, I believe it is important to make learning as fun and as interactive as possible. My goal is to get my students to enjoy math as much as I do."

"I can proudly say I've taught math and hard science to all types, from poets to future engineers. I focus on teaching my students to always think for themselves and to come up with their own solutions rather than relying on rote memorization. My goal is that come test time, even if they are initially stumped, the intuition that students have worked so hard to build up will push them in the right direction. In my free time, I devour books, go on cooking adventures, and explore Chicago with my friends.."

"During my Masters, I worked as a research assistant and trained two interns in data analysis, statistics and worked with them in completing research projects. In the GRE (Graduate Record Exam) I scored 800/800 in math which helped me secure admission to University of Texas at Austin with a tuition waiver. Prior to that, I graduated with a Bachelors in Technology from Indian Institute of Technology, Madras in Civil Engineering with a 3.6 GPA. During summer vacation in my junior and senior years I trained high school students in Mathematics for the IIT JEE (Joint Entrance Examination), one of the most competitive exams with about 5% ...

" 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 ...

" My Engineering curriculum at Northwestern was heavily centered around math, chemistry, biology, and physics, so I can work with a student on more than one class at a time. I'm a laid back individual, but I like to push my students. I know that every student is able to do well and I really enjoy helping them along their path to success. But being laid back, I am good at relaxing a student and helping point out what is important and what is not. In my free time, I enjoy writing music."

"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'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 ...

" My beginning Latin students saw particularly outstanding results, because I was able to teach them the English grammar and mechanics they needed to transition from English to Latin. From my professional experience as a Shakespearean actor and my educational experience as a Shakespearean director, I know that I can explain and enliven classic texts for people of all ages. I have a strong literature background, and I am passionate about tutoring students who struggle to understand or appreciate English literary treasures. I have extensive informal experience editing the written work of my friends and sisters." ...
