I am well qualified to tutor all undergraduate physics courses, and math courses through calculus and differential equations. I also tut... [more]

I've worked with students on advanced Algebra in regular classrooms, special education classrooms, and in one-on-tutoring settings with both children and adults. I'm experienced in using multiple approaches to teach Algebra, and have had success with students who have had difficulty with the subject before. I also scored in the 95% percentile on the math section of the GRE, which prominently features problems at this level of Algebra. (A quick clarification of my availability. I live in Forest Park and commute to Northbrook five days a week. I can schedule regular tutoring sessions on weekday [more]

I have over 20 years of experience tutoring in math and science. I have a strong math and science foundation. I received my PhD in Molecular Genetics in 2006 from the University of Illinois at Chicago, and I currently work at the University of Chicago as a research scientist. I use math and science in my everyday life. My goal as a tutor is not only to help students learn math and science, but also to share my enthusiasm and passion for these subjects. When I work with students, I make sure t... [more]

I thoroughly enjoy tutoring students on Algebra 2, which comes up fairly often on the ACT - including those occasionally annoying logarithms! With practice, I find students become particularly good at those, along with the more enjoyable, conceptual aspects of Algebra 2. I am a certified teacher with 16 years of teaching experience and nearly seven years of tutoring experience, specializing in preparing students for the ACT and SAT. I have a solid history of results with students typically making gains of 5-8 points on their ACT composite, and increases of between 150-300 points on their SAT t [more]

I have helped between two to three thousand students improve their scores on all of these tests. Though I have an extensive liberal arts background, please note that ... [more]

I've consistently scored in the 99th percentile on the ACT and the 90th p... [more]

Algebra is about understanding a fundamental set of rules and applying to them to various problems. I had mastered these concepts before entering middle school and started tutoring my peers in 8th grade. I continued tutoring algebra through out high school. At Northwestern, I was a teacher assistant for several algebra classes taught through the Center for Talent Development program. I have a firm understanding of these concepts and know multiple ways to explain each of them. I can't wait to share my knowledge with you. [more]

I taught Algebra 2 for five years in Reno. I tutored at the University of Michigan for two years for student athletes. I tutored both chemistry (inorganic, organic and physical chemistry) and mathematics (mostly Calc 1). During this time I attended graduate school to study education. I received my certification in Chemistry and Mathematics in 2008. I began teaching the next year. For the next five years I taught Algebra 1 and 2. Then I began teaching life and physical science, and finally focused on teaching chemistry of all le... [more]

I have always had a passion for mathematics. I attended the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy in high school and am currently an actuary (heavily uses mathematics for insurance companies). I tutored my way through middle school, high school, and college teaching a wide variety of mathematics and statistics. I earned my pizza money since middle school and throughout high school, college, and post-college working and volunteering as both a tutor in all kinds of academic subjects and as a private swimming lesson instructor. As such, I have experience working with people of all different ki [more]

I completed and excelled in a combined Algebra 2 / Trigonometry Honors course. I teach Algebra 2, either as part of a student's prep for standardized tests, or to help them do well in this challenging math class. I've got 15+ years of experience as a Math tutor, for all the major courses. I help students understand Algebra 2 concepts not just as "math" but as a language they will use going forward in their adult lives. By showing my students why Algebra 2 is relevant beyond the course, I create a higher level of intrinsic motivation so your student will work a bit harder, and a lot smarter, t [more]
