Math, Dyslexia, Sped, Unusual Situations.

I'm a professionally published fiction writer and I'm very widely read. I love books and love to share that love with other people. (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 afternoons in either location or anywhere roughly in between those two towns. I can only schedule one-off sessions at other times and in other locations. Please feel free to message me if you're not sure if you're in my area.) I love working with students and enjoy tackling unusual and difficult problems. [more]

Tanya, Your Basic Skills, Language Arts, and ESL Tutor to the Rescue!

Writing, Reading, and Critical Thinking for the Humanities

I have seen the difficulties that students have with writing from several different angles. I teach (and grade papers!) at the college level, and have been doing so for ten semesters, in 100- and 200-level and adult education courses. As a result, I know what your professors will be looking for! The classes themselves have been philosophy, literature, and writing courses, which all involve critical reading and writing, so I have been teaching those skills as part of those classes for just as...

Experienced ACT/SAT tutor, Certified Teacher, Math and English

I think that an appreciation for the classic works of literature is really essential to being an intelligent, informed adult - since these works are made reference to so often in conversation and in writing. I believe that when students feel comfortable that they have the gist of these works, and build on their knowledge of them, that they appreciate how useful this knowledge is. I can help students to build that appreciation. 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 ha [more]

ESL & French Tutor

I love to read books, and novels in particular tend to speak to me the most. I have experience tutoring an ESL class in which we read the book, "Buried Onions," by Gary Soto, a simple read for native speakers but a tool for learning vocabulary for the students of our classroom. I myself have a love for classical literature. Some of my favorite authors include Jane Austen, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Flannery O'Connor, and Charles Dickens. I love to pick up a book and read for several hours when I have the chance. [more]
