"Mainly I worked with high school students and adults, but outside of schools I have worked with children of all ages. My main tutoring subjects, in addition to being my biggest interests, are German, Spanish, History, Geography, and Earth Sciences and I'm always excited to help others learn about them. I find learning to be fun and try to pass that along to the students I tutor. Education is key to having a successful life, and I am invested in my students succeeding.."

"One of the things I enjoyed most was meeting with these groups of students outside of the classroom to work on their business plans, practice their presentations, and help them work through any challenges and feel confident about their work and preparation for the competitions. I have a variety of teaching and training experiences in different contexts. After receiving my bachelors degree in Business Administration from Truman State University, I joined a team of trainers at a financial services company, Edward Jones. I worked with adult professionals to help them obtain their Series 7 licensure." ...

I believe that one-on-one help is often the best pathway to success, and I enjoy individualizing my lessons to a student's interests and needs.

"I have now been teaching Spanish at the secondary level for 5 years, working at both the high school and middle school levels. I have recently become even more fired up about teaching Spanish due to a methodology called TPRS (Teaching Proficiency through Reading & Storytelling). This essentially means that learning is fun and more effortless for students and they are able to more effectively USE the language (read, speak, listen, write).."

" 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. My favorite thing about tutoring is getting to know my students on an individual basis, and figuring out how they learn best. In my free time, I love being with my family and friends, reading good books, dancing, and exploring the city of Chicago-my new home!."

"I have worked with students of varying abilities, including those with learning difficulties and gifted students. I grew up in the Chicago area, but I was born in Ukraine, so I speak Russian fluenty. I also speak Spanish--I learned it in school and still use it to this day with my husband's family. Outside of work, I am married with a 2-year-old son."

"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.."
