Certified Algebra Tutor in Blue Island, IL

During my time in college and after graduation, I have spent vast amounts of time either tutoring or being tutored in the basic sciences. As a Biology major with a pre-med emphasis, I have developed a strong background in the basic sciences (Chemistry, Biology, Physics) that has been enhanced...... My teaching philosophy is based on the Socratic method: namely, I try to help the student discover the subject for themselves versus me simply giving them the answers. I like to ask leading questions that allow the student to critically think about topics and come to the correct answer in a more natural fashion than simply "being told" how to do a problem.
