"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. Most recently, I tutored two brothers, in the 4th and 5th grade respectively, in math. I also volunteer weekly as a mentor to a 4th grade girl at the Evanston YMCA, and have extensive babysitting experience."

"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 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. This has given me great experience seeing what goes into testing students; I know what they should know at various grade levels, I'm familiar with LOTS of pedagogical techniques (and have seen what works and what doesn't), and I've had a lot of experience "leveling" text and lessongs. That means that I know how to adapt a student's in-school curriculum to match their particular ability level and learning styles." ...

"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. My college search is not yet a distant memory, making me a great resource for college application guidance, especially when it comes to fine-tuning or drafting personal essays." ...

" I also have experience tutoring the GRE and the GMAT in a one-on-one setting. My tutoring style is influenced by my background in philosophy. 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."

" My specialities are writing and SAT prep, although I enjoy working with students on a variety of different subjects, including math. I worked for three years at the Princeton Writing Center, helping students with brainstorming, organization, structure, and revision in academic writing. I also worked on SAT prep and college applications with high school students for Let's Get Ready, a nonprofit organization. I am excited to meet new students in Chicago! I excel at listening to student's needs and creatively finding a plan to meet them.." ...

"I graduated from the University of Rochester, where I studied Public Health, Spanish, and Math. I tutor multiple levels of math, ACT and SAT prep in Math and English, and Spanish. My philosophy as a tutor is that students know more than they think they do. I like to guide my students through solving problems by using their prior knowledge and experience, and asking questions so that they can participate as much as I do."

"Most recently, I worked with a struggling college senior (self-described as "bad at math") to achieve a score of 100% on her college algebra final. 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." ...

"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 Varsity tutor.." ...
