Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Trigonometry tutors in Chicago, IL
"Working one-on-one with a student is a great opportunity to really focus on the individual's academic needs or talents, and allows the tutor to be able to provide exactly what the student needs to progress in his or her academic career. I have taught for University of Maryland University College for the past two years in Greece. I teach members of the US Navy, and I have found it one of the most challenging and exciting experiences in my academic career. Students in my classrooms often have varying educational backgrounds, so I have had to modify the curriculum so that it fit all students, regardless of their academic level." ...

"I tutor multiple levels of math, ACT and SAT prep in Math and English, and Spanish. 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 graduate school I was a teaching assistant for an introductory Physics class for one semester. I led laboratories as well as a discussion period to go over homework questions. Being a lifelong student of math and science, I think I have a strong understanding of students' frustrations with the subjects having experienced many of them myself at one point or another. I can provide a fresh perspective to students and help them view problems in different ways that teachers may not have the time to do. ."

"Though I've worked extensively with the ACT, I found myself teaching and tutoring subjects as diverse as Shakespearean writing and calculus to my two younger sisters and many ambitious peers who sought my assistance. During the school day, I'm generally busy with my life coaching practice. I view coaching and tutoring as different means to the same end of helping others grow and achieve even the loftiest goals they set for themselves. It's also given me great practice in patience, listening, and adaptive approaches to problem solving." ...

" Because of my interest in learning, in addition to courses in physics, I have taken courses in a wide variety of subjects including chemistry, psychology and biology. It is also my interest in learning that makes tutoring something I enjoy doing. As an undergraduate I spent time tutoring other students in several subject areas, including physics, chemistry, biology and math. Knowing that I helped someone have a better understanding of a subject is very rewarding."
