"I am a philosophy of religions M.A. student at the University of Chicago, and I've been living in the Chicago area for about five years. I work with students for both ACT prep and academic support. As a philosopher, I spend a lot of time breaking down complex ideas into simple, digestible parts; I'm pretty good at it, and I think it makes me a better tutor. I've worked with the whole spectrum of students, from sixth graders through college seniors, including students with disabilities."

"I'm a recent transplant to Chicago, and I'm excited to explore the midwest! I'm heavily immersed in the sciences and stay pretty busy in a bacterial genetics lab whenever I'm not tutoring. Science is a full-time lifestyle for me, so I've had my share of exploring as well as tutoring chemistry, biology, biochemistry, and physics up to the undergraduate level. 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." ...

"As an educator, I strive to ensure that all my students maximize their potential and achieve all of their goals. My experience has been with primarily middle and high school students in urban settings and I appreciate and understand the need for differentiation based on the diversity of student needs and learning styles. I look at education as a series of building blocks, or skill sets. I believe in repetition and mastering of skill sets before proceeding to the next levels."

"I am a recent graduate from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, with a BA in Political Science. Like most poli-sci majors, I intend to go to law school and someday practice law as a career. 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."

"I'm a 4th year medical student pursuing a career in interventional radiology. I've always made time to teach others, whether through informal teaching sessions with underclassmen or formal lectures on anatomy and physiology. I've performed well on multiple standardized tests, including the MCAT and USMLE Step 1 and 2ck, and I would like to share my strategies to help more students succeed. I believe that hard work and determination can lead to great outcomes, but some students also need to learn how to study."
