"and abroad, many times in several languages. My primary objective is to get students from a basic understanding of the material to a level where they can independently think and apply the material in practical situations or to problem solve. This is one of the greatest goals and benefits of the educational experience. I strive to help student make connections between concepts and realize that concepts are interwoven and build off of each other and I am not afraid to challenge students.

"When they learn the basic framework of something, be it atomic structure or algebra, and then learn how everything else flows logically from it, students retain information better and can make use of it in new situations. In the classroom and one-on-one, I'm informal, interesting, and lots of fun. I have a lot of experience translating science into English, and my hope is that all of my students walk away with the ability to apply what they learn to their lives. Go forth and do science!."

"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.."

" That's one of the things I love the most about science and mathematics - it informs your whole outlook on the world and the way you think. And that's why I enjoy helping others to develop their scientific abilities as well. I've worked as a tutor to groups of students, as well as one-on-one, and have taught a university course in physical chemistry. In all of these, I found it to be incredibly rewarding when I knew that a student was able to understand the subject better than before."

"To that end, I derive much enjoyment from helping my students along their way. I believe that my greatest attributes as a tutor are twofold: my genuine concern for the success of my students combined with an ability to elucidate difficult subject matter in a coherent and effective manner to anyone who's willing to listen. I've worked with 3rd graders, college juniors, and everywhere in between; so, I've learned to tailor my tutoring approach to each individual student and their particular learning style.

"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.
