"I am qualified to teach math and science as well as SAT Prep. Having just finished my Biological Sciences degree and my English minor in March, I am extremely comfortable with science and math as well as SAT Prep. During high school, I tutored other high school students in Chemistry and Calculus, and the students I tutored excelled in their classes, thanking me at the end of the year. At Northwestern, I was a Gateway Science Workshop facilitator in Calculus, leading other undergraduates in a small-group setting through worksheets in order to solidify their grasp of difficult Calculus concepts." ...

"I hope to pass this excitement on to my students, even if the subject isn't the easiest or the most exciting. I started tutoring during my Senior year in high school, and have been tutoring on the side ever since. In addition to tutoring on a regular basis, I also have a lot of experience helping out friends with subjects that they have difficulty with. I enjoy solving problems, so helping someone with an extra math problem or with editing their paper is always a welcome activity."

"I have been teaching and tutoring for the past seven years in China and the US, and am currently working on a Masters Degree in teaching Chinese language with the goal of becoming a Chinese professor. I believe that tutoring is the ideal way to learn because it allows for a truly personalized and pressure-free learning experience that will help you build your language skills through natural conversation, activities, and games. Last year I taught 1st, 2nd, and 3rd year level Mandarin courses in the Upper School at the Latin School of Chicago. After graduating from Oberlin College in 2007 I spent two years teaching English at the Shanxi ...

"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.." ...

"I especially enjoy high-schoolers of every level, but I have tutored students from age 6 to 35! To me, tutoring is about really getting to know each student, their strengths, and those areas of weakness that are coming between them and their highest potential. My specialties are math, essay writing and Spanish. I love algebra because it's so neat and there's always a right answer, and I enjoy helping students realize that it's more straightforward than it seems. I learned Spanish as a second language, and becoming fluent was one of the most exciting things I have ever done." ...

" 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 ...

"I have extensive experience tutoring and working with youth in general. I have tutored fourth- and fifth-graders in math and peer-edited countless peers' college essays; I have directed youth sports camps and provided support to severely emotionally disturbed high-schoolers. It may sound trite, but I deeply enjoy the intellectual and interpersonal challenge of the teaching experience. While I expect hard work from a student, I am patient above all and listen before I lecture."

"(that's where Timbuctu is....yes, it's a real place!) I love both subjects and have a variety of experiences teaching and doing both. In Math, I have taught through elementary-level through Algebra 2 and Geometry. In music, I have taught K-12, directed an adult community choir, taught private lessons in voice and piano to students ages 5-40, and sung solo in a jazz band, musicals, and classical concerts. Teaching, whether it be math or music, is something I love doing, especially in a one-on-one environment where students have the opportunity to ask questions and explore and discover without some of the pressure or neglect that can ...
