" 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'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 taught English to students who ranged from preschool children to working adults. Since moving back to the US, I still tutor Mandarin. I strive to make my lessons dynamic and enjoyable. I feel it is important that tutoring sessions are adapted to the student's needs and personality. The more students are engaged in the learning process the easier it is for them to stay motivated and reach their goals. The reason I love teaching languages is because I'm a people person."

" For four semesters at IIT I have served as a teaching assistant for a variety of courses: Geometry for Architects, Introduction to Calculus, and Introduction to Biomedical Engineering. Through this experience I have learned to assess each student's learning style uniquely, and I recognize that no two students are alike.

" I also have a masters degree in gifted education, which taught me to strengthen higher levels of thinking and learning with students. I incorporate inferential thinking and logic into all of my tutoring sessions in order to give my students practice with skills that they will need throughout their lives. I also have an arsenal of test-taking tips and tricks that students can use to excel on standardized tests. Test-taking is generally not an inborn talent; it is a skill that must be learned. Working with a tutor is a great way to learn how!." ...
