"If your student needs any help in Language Arts, request me, you won't be disappointed. I've been reading ever since I started reading those little pamphlet books like "See Dick Run." I'm consistently in the middle of two or three books. I'm very interested in movies and tv shows as a medium for excellent writing.."

"I have a passion for working with children and especially enjoy the moment when new learning "clicks" with a student. I love tutoring because it allows me to spend one on one time with students. This is when I believe true learning occurs. Outside of tutoring and teaching, I enjoy running marathons, swimming, reading, and traveling with people I love!."

" Both of my parents taught high school social studies, so you might say teaching runs in the family! I believe that every student has the capability to achieve academically, but that, sometimes, traditional classroom instruction isn't quite enough to lead each student to his or her potential. Working one-on-one with a student allows me to target areas of weakness, while increasing his confidence in his ability to achieve. Standardized testing isn't particularly fun, but getting into the college of your dreams is, and conquering the SAT and/or the ACT is an important step in the process. Tutoring sessions don't have to be unpleasant or ...

"I love all things economics, especially environmental and natural resource economics. I was a tutor at the Lawrence University Center for Teaching and Learning for four years, and have found my students are most successful when they have fun with their lessons. I am always exploring new ways to make tutoring sessions fun and easy to understand! I am known to bring rubberbands, corn kernels, and LOTS of scratch paper to my sessions. I am a Spanish speaker and spent six months studying in Argentina where I learned to dance tango and practiced daily yoga in Spanish and English. I recently traveled to China for a college course studying ...

"Every truth has four corners: as a teacher I give you one corner, and it is for you to find the other three.-Confucius As a tutor it is my goal to not only teach my students the material they need to learn, but to better their core understanding of a subject and their methods of learning for the future. This way, they can continue to learn at an advanced level long after they no longer require the service of a tutor. ."

"Currently, I am a medical student at Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine (class of 2016). As a tutor, there's no greater satisfaction than witnessing a student achieve his or her goals. 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 ...

"I'm also certified fluent in both French and Spanish and spent last semester in Paris, France. I'm a fun, engaging teacher with a dynamic personal energy, and one of my greatest strengths is generating enthusiasm in even the most reluctant students. I don't see why grammar lessons can't be games and punctuation worksheets can't make you laugh! I understand how discouraging it can be to struggle with reading or writing at any age, and my personal objective is to give students the tools they need to feel confident and proud of their work. In my spare time, I love reading, running, and spending time with my family.." ...

" Prior to attending the Harris School, I worked as a GMAT instructor at the Bluedata International Institute in Manhattan and as an SAT math instructor at the Excel Class Academy in Queens. 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."
