About

I'm a creative, unique individual with diverse interests. As a writer/editor/proofreader, I have solid English language skills, as a teacher at heart, I have the tutoring skills needed to help someone learn the language. As a musician I have the talent and skills required to assist someone in learning vocal (in various genres), sight-singing and beginner to intermediate music theory. I have varied writing experience and skills (ranging from product reviews to novel writing), basic e-book publishing/formatting/editing skills, and many, many other skills in other realms, including fitness/health, and theater/dance and pet-sitting/dog-walking.

About

Academic needs of students are as distinct as their individual interests. As an educator in San Antonio, Texas and a volunteer English teacher in Israel, I adapted my practice on a student-by-student basis to ensure achievement of academic excellence and development of an intrinsic love and motivation for learning. I do this by building personal relationships with each student, allowing me to teach lessons in a way that is meaningful, fun, and engaging for them. Students I work with will not only make impressive academic gains, but will be challenged to see how what they learn in school is immediately relevant to their own lives. Education: St. Olaf College (B.A. political science, Asian Studies, Latin American Studies) University of Chicago (M.A. Political science) Licensed EC-6 Educator Results: During the 2014-2015 tutor year, all three of my 6th-9th grade students were admitted into Whitney Young and St. Ignatius. My ACT students grow an average of 5 composite points. As a fifth grade teacher, 100% of my students passed the state math, reading an science assessments. My students averaged 1.7 years of reading growth in nine months. Awards: In 2013, I was awarded the Rising Star Award for Excellence in Teaching by the San Antonio Independent School District. In 2014, I was a Sue Lehman Award Nominee in San Antonio, Texas.

About

My name is Kim Hitchcock, and I started this business to help learners of English improve their skills primarily in the workplace. With an M.A. in teaching English to speakers of other languages and my experience since 2002, I teach customized ESL classes for businesses and individuals. I will come to the workplace for private lessons or a class, or I will provide lessons outside of work. Many ELCS classes are customized to improve language at the same time as improving work performance or to meet other life goals.

  • River Forest, IL 60305

About

I am heading into my 11th year of teaching but have been tutoring since my undergraduate days. I really enjoy tutoring one-on-one because as a teacher, I know how effective personalized instruction is. I tutor students in grammar, writing, reading, and the high school placement exam. It is extremely important to understand where my student is struggling and how to help him/her overcome those challenges. Our children truly are our future, and I feel personally responsible in leading the charge to make that happen.

About

I am a Chicago based English literature and writing tutor. At the age of 12, I unknowingly became a tutor for my seventh grade class, editing papers and reviewing reading material with my peers after school. As a college senior and English major, throughout my academic career, I have found pure joy in helping others improve and sharpen their reading and writing skills. For my previous experience, I was selected by a professor to help my peers who needed help with written assignments and daily quizzes. Also, I previously worked for Gear-Up, which is a federally funded program dedicated to the academic success of students grades 6 to 12. As a student advocate, I conducted workshops and created a tutoring program for my seventh and eighth grade students. What I have learned from my previous experiences is that, the ability to think critically and communicate clearly are essential tools for success--tools necessary not only of a tutee, but also from a tutor. I look forward to helping those who need and desire it most. I"m located near the Oak Park area, and am willing to travel.

I provide a comprehensive tutoring service to students in the 6th grade up through college and those who are either struggling in a particular subject matter or are seeking extra preparation for an upcoming exam, for instance, ACT, SAT, AP or just a final for a class. My professional service is personalized as I work to present the more challenging concepts in multiple, different ways -- that is, different ways of thinking about and grasping the concept -- after observing their unique approach to the material. Part of my method also involves bringing a relaxed, positive energy to the table to boost their confidence and level their perspective.
