Carefully selected, highly-credentialed tutors in Chicago, IL
"I have tutored high school, junior high and elementary school students in math and physics for nearly 10 years. I am enthusiastic about my job and I love having the ability to help students in their academic careers, and to be able to instill the same enthusiasm I have about science into my students. 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." ...

"If working on a school or college subject, I will incorporate the students' own classroom texts with my own additional examples or readings. If working for test prep, I would like to work with the student in his or her own test prep book (I will have the same myself) working through specific strategies for each question. My past tutoring and teaching experiences include working with individual college students on English essay writing, Intro Micro- and Macroeconomics, and 4th-5th grade creative writing.

" As an adult, I am a grammar fiend and a talented writer. Teaching people to read and write is one of my favorite activities. I have taught or tutored in many different arenas, from high school teaching and tutoring to legal intern and lawyer training, and from summer camps and after-school programs to caring for my elementary-and-toddler-aged nieces and nephew. Currently, I teach high school math, science, English, social studies, and theater arts when those classroom teachers aren't available. That's right."

My favorite part of teaching is seeing students finally start to understand a concept and watching their agitation fade and turn into relief and eventually curiosity with the material. I spent two years of my undergrad at the Math Department tutoring center where I tutored subjects ranging from Elementary Algebra to Multivariable Calculus. 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 ...
