" I've been working with children since I taught Sunday school in High School. I continued at college by volunteering during homework time at a local homeless shelter and working at the college writing center. After graduation, as jobs and family commitments allowed, I continued to volunteer, again at a homeless shelter through a Chicago Public School program. Currently, I work with the wonderful children Varsity finds for me, devoting my energy and imagination to making their learning as productive as possible.."

"While I was studying writing at Illinois Wesleyan University, I volunteered as a tutor in elementary schools, junior highs, high schools, and preschools. 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." ...

"I worked as a teaching assistant and tutor for a physics course for two semesters my senior year. 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 ...

" I have donated many hours teaching at grade and high schools on various subjects in the U.S. 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.

" It's been a long journey that brought me to this point; one that's given me invaluable experiences that I bring to my teaching and tutoring style. I grew up on the coast of New Jersey, and attended a public high school that is now considered failing. While there, I worked as hard as I could to exceed standards and developed an intrinsic motivation to learn anything and everything that I could. By the time I completed that experience, I was prepared and yearning to move on to greater things. I found such things at the University of Chicago, where I chose to study physics. That was not without it's challenges initially, however." ...

"I'm new to Chicago, and I'm really enjoying getting to know the city! My teaching experience began during my Peace Corps service in Nicaragua. I was a Small Business Development volunteer, and taught Entrepreneurship and Life Skills courses to high school students. Each year, the students form small groups, create their own businesses and participate in competitions on a local, regional, and national level. 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 ...

"I am from Manhattan but have been living in the Chicago area for almost 5 years. Ever since I was a little girl, I've had a passion for teaching and for school.

My credentials: I graduated in the top 5 of my high school class and took numerous AP classes as well as the SAT, ACT, and SATII."

"I studied theater at an urban, performing-arts high school before moving to Los Angeles to pursue a career as a screenwriter and a film and television actor. After a two year sojourn, I returned to the Midwest to attend college at DePaul University, where I worked as a tutor, mentor, and assistant teacher at the University Center for Writing-based Learning. During my collegiate tenure, I maintained a 3.99 GPA, garnered numerous accolades for literary achievement, received top departmental honors, presented scholarship at various Chicagoland conferences, and became a published author; these efforts all culminated in my June 2012 ...
