...and Finite Math) and prepared students for the ACT, SAT, SAT subject tests, AP exams, and college placement exams. When tutoring, I will start by showing students good examples and all the steps, but by the end of the session, the student is showing me all the steps without any assistance. We both need to be confident that the student can talk through the problem and solve it with no notes and without prompting.

...with a BS in Mechanical Engineering and am currently pursuing a Master's Degree in Sports Administration (Sports Analytics track) at Northwestern University. I played 4 years of basketball in college and am on the coaching staff for the Men's Basketball team at the University of Chicago. I tutored in high school and college and take pride in my ability to explain things clearly. I am excited to meet and help new students!... My teaching philosophy involves breaking down a concept to building blocks that the student is confident with and then building up from there. That could mean backtracking to very basic concepts, but if those are the only ones the student feels comfortable with, that has to be the starting point. This ensures that there will not be holes in the student's understanding, and I take pride in being able to explain things clearly in this light.

The more the students can come to their...
