Everyone deserves to be listened to. My goal is to coach students to be successful English communcators and achieve their goals. I strive eve... [more]

Math, Dyslexia, Sped, Unusual Situations.

I've taught reading to students of many different ages and ability levels, and have always included vocabulary instruction as part of my reading instruction. (A quick clarification of my availability. I live in Forest Park and commute to Northbrook five days a week.

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.)

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...

Tutor - English, Reading, Math, Athletics

I incorporate vocabulary into my work with reading as well. After my student finishes the passage I select for her, not only does she summarize what she just read, but she also picks out a list of words from the reading that she wants to learn more about. I assign her the list of words she has written down for our next English lesson, and she defines each word for me. I am a 2017 graduate from Columbia College in downtown Chicago, Illinois, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in creative writing. As a tutor, I am looking to help students not only to grow in their learning, but also to have fun dur [more]
