"I believe everyone has the capacity to learn; you just have to find the way that fits your personality. I LOVE seeing people grow and succeed! In my spare time, I enjoy playing soccer or running (weather permitting). I can be found relaxing at the piano or with my flute, and look forward to learning even more musical instruments. Some day, I hope to travel around the world and experience as many different cultures as I can!."

"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 scoring expectations on the SAT. As a graduate of the Oberlin College Creative Writing Program, I believe that every writing assignment, from historical essays to Japanese poetry to science term papers, has the possibility to enthrall and ...

"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.."

" 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 ...

" 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 the student,” and therefore adapt my teaching to fit each individual’s needs and learning styles. By pinpointing and addressing students’ weaknesses and creating a comfortable, nurturing environment in which they can learn, I work to help students solidify their ...

"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). 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 ...

"Though I've worked extensively with the ACT, I found myself teaching and tutoring subjects as diverse as Shakespearean writing and calculus to my two younger sisters and many ambitious peers who sought my assistance. 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." ...
