Carefully selected, highly-credentialed SAT Writing tutors in Chicago, IL
"I've worked with high school students for the past 5 years and absolutely love teaching! In my experience, most students already have the knowledge they need to do well. Teaching is really about building confidence and helping a student tie together bits and pieces they already know to answer a problem. Every student is different, and I enjoy the challenge of being able to figure out how to best tailor a session to an individual's learning style.."

"Getting there necessitates taking the LSAT, an exam that is quite different from other standardized tests in that it focuses on a singular skill set: formal logic. 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)." ...

"I went to the Illinois Math and Science Academy, which is a residential high school for gifted students. In order to attend one must take the SAT and apply to the school. 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 am very capable at the SAT and ACT as can be seen by my scores, and also am well suited to tutor the MCAT as well as I have taken it with the intention of applying to medical school.

"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'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." ...

"News' and Newsweek's lists of top 100 high schools in the nation. In Cincinnati, I worked with Latin students at all levels. 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'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. My teacher instilled in me the firm belief that the past shapes the present, and that those who understand history have the power to shape the future. Literature has always been a close second-favorite; I'm an avid reader of fiction both classic and contemporary, and I hope to someday publish a novel of my own." ...
