" Part of the fun about tutoring is that it allows me to break down and analyze the mathematical concepts that may otherwise be overlooked. The other part of tutoring I really enjoy; seeing the students I help gain a significantly better understanding of the math and earn much better grades. My approach to tutoring is one of patience. Learning cannot be rushed, and a student who feels stressed will have a more difficult time learning."

"I worked as a teaching assistant and tutor for a physics course for two semesters my senior year. 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 ...

"In the last two years I've tutored everyone from middle school students to adults, on topics ranging from the intuitions of basic arithmetic to how to connect with and describe an author's voice. Behind every topic, a new world is waiting for every student if we can just make things click. I tutor with gestures and jokes, messy diagrams and clean metaphors. 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." ...
