Reviews from students:

"I loved how you explained math. You were able to explain formulas so they made sense and it was engaging. Thank you for making math interesting." - Ferol Conklin, May 2011

"I have published over 20 articles, and no one has ever edited my articles as thoroughly or as helpfully as you did." - Mark Ragel, July 2011

"The instructor was the best I had at this university." - Spanish student, University of Illinois

"Lindsay was kind, patient, and funny. She seemed to really enjoy teaching." - Spanish student, University of Illinois

I have three years professional teaching experience and countless years of tutoring experience. I have always been a teacher at heart. I feel my biggest strength as a tutor is looking at material from the perspective of the student.

I have also been described as a calm, patient, passionate, and fun tutor. I think lesson plans should be fun to motivate students to care about the subject and engage in the process of learning. I worked as a Spanish TA at the University of Illinois for two years as as the main instructor for over 200 students. I have also worked as a middle school teacher. I have experience tutoring a variety of subjects, including test prep, reading and writing, and various levels of math.

My credentials that qualify me as an expert in addition to a seasoned instructor include:

Spanish: Spanish major; 1 year living in Costa Rica; 1 year research experience in second language acquisition methods

Math: lifelong math nerd (meant in only the most positive sense possible); near-perfect math SAT and GRE scores; began college as a math major; high scores on Calculus AP tests.

Reading/writing: Journalism M.S. (with extensive editing and stylistic experience); Linguistics major (with focus on syntax and grammar); 4 advanced literary analysis courses
