Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Trigonometry tutors in Highland Park, IL
" There I studied Physics with a specialization in Astrophysics. I was very involved in the student physics organizations, published several papers about gamma rays, and traveled to South America to work on experiments. I then went to graduate school at Northwestern University, where I received my Master's Degree in Learning Sciences (which is like a degree in Education with an emphasis on public policy.) I focused mostly on better teaching practices outside the classroom, utilizing technology to teach, and getting girls interested in math and science. I have an informal, friendly teaching style. I like to show students that they CAN ...

"Studying with such a diverse group of people allowed me insight into the different ways people learn and think about studying. Also, a deep understanding of physics and mathematics was fundamental to mastering the engineering subjects I studied every day. My Methods: Everyone learns in different ways. The first thing I will try to do when tutoring is find out how YOU learn."

"I use both analytical as well as graphical methods or a combination of the two as needed to cater to each student. Having both an Engineering and Architecture background, I am able to explain difficult concepts to either a left or right-brained student, verbally or with visual representations. I am also great at getting students excited about the subject they are learning by relating it to something relevant to them.."

"I've worked with high school students for the past 5 years and absolutely love teaching! In my experience, most students already have the knowledge they need to do well. Teaching is really about building confidence and helping a student tie together bits and pieces they already know to answer a problem. Every student is different, and I enjoy the challenge of being able to figure out how to best tailor a session to an individual's learning style.."

"I taught Geometry and Algebra I. I enjoyed the classes where I was able to teach students in a more one-on-one environment. After graduating, I got a job as a high school Mathematics teacher in a small town in Wyoming. I taught 8th grade Math, Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Pre-calculus, and a senior level Math. I enjoyed teaching in a more hands-on approach in Wyoming. In the fall of 2007, I was able to teach Pre-calculus and Algebra I in a school in South Dakota."

"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.."

" 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. When I'm not helping students live out their dreams, I like to run."

"I moved to Chicago this summer to start an MAT program in Art Education. I am excited about making the switch, but I still love teaching math, and love helping students make connections with what they are learning. On the side, I love running, reading, printmaking, yoga, and live music."

"I believe that studying a foreign language can be fun, and does not mean that you have to take those boring grammar and vocabulary classes over and over again. Passion is very important to this process. I like to teach in a way which keeps the students interested and engaged, and help them to be highly self motivated. I have helped many beginner students pass their HSK tests (The standardized test for Chinese language)."
