"I get excited about tutoring. 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'm a recent transplant to Chicago, and I'm excited to explore the midwest! I'm heavily immersed in the sciences and stay pretty busy in a bacterial genetics lab whenever I'm not tutoring. Science is a full-time lifestyle for me, so I've had my share of exploring as well as tutoring chemistry, biology, biochemistry, and physics up to the undergraduate level. I majored in chemistry and general/statistical mathematics, and am capable of teaching up to abstraction subjects in the latter. I have also studied literature, specifically post-modern American, British Renaissance, and poetry throughout my IB high school and college years." ...

"I am a recent Duke graduate with several years of tutoring experience and a heart for helping others succeed. Recognizing that hard work becomes easier with interest and engagement, I make the learning environment relaxed and enjoyable - and sometimes outright fun! I find tutoring to be incredibly rewarding, and strive to have my students view their work the same way, leaving them feeling more comfortable in their coursework, confident in their abilities, and excited for new challenges.

I've had a passion for history and politics since my eighth grade social studies class, where we learned modern American history while also monitoring the presidential election and preparing for our U.S. and Illinois Constitution tests." ...

"I've been tutoring in some way or another for almost ten years! I started working with junior high kids in a music/academic summer camp while I was in high school. While I was studying writing at Illinois Wesleyan University, I volunteered as a tutor in elementary schools, junior highs, high schools, and preschools. I've done a lot of work with bilingual (native Spanish-speaking)students. For the past 3 years, I've worked in the educational publishing industry -- in other words, I write text books."

"I attended the University of Chicago for my undergrad degree. 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, ...

"My name is Madeline (Maddie), and I am currently a sophomore at Northwestern University majoring in theatre and English (creative writing), with a minor in psychology. Originally from New York, I went to a Montessori School through the 6th grade, when I transferred to the Brearley School, an all-girls school in Manhattan. I love to act, sing, make mixed CDs for friends, play with animals, read, write, and watch good movies. I have tutored independently for the past couple years; my teaching experiences include tutoring an eight-grade boy with Asperger's in reading and math, and a 9th grade girl in essay writing and editing." ...

"I earned my Bachelors of Science in Biology of Global Health from Georgetown University in Washington, DC, graduating Magna Cum Laude in 2012. 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.
