About

I met with Steve for 5 sessions to help me get my GRE math score on track. I had taken a Kaplan course before I took the GRE for the first time, but I scored abysmally in Quantitative Reasoning-- so low that I doubt my Kaplan work had any effect upon my score. Private tutoring was my last ditch effort to improve. Steve directed me to official GRE study materials (which were much more true to test than Kaplan's) and helped me recognize question patterns and develop a testing methodology. After ten hours working together I scored a whole 14 points higher in Quantitative Reasoning, which translated to a raise of 25 percentile points! What especially impressed me about Steve's work as a tutor was his flexibility and availability. I had only three weeks between our first tutoring session and my second attempt at the GRE, and Steve accommodated my schedule beautifully: he even was willing to meet near my house. He also kept me engaged and accountable through text and email, always underlining that I could call or email him for math help in a pinch. Thanks to Steve's direction and study aids, I have more than surpassed the Quantitative score goals I had when I signed up for tutoring. Steve definitely gives you a plan (and it doesn't hurt that he's a nice guy!). I would definitely recommend him to any test taker looking to improve.

About

Ms.Conrad was my 10th grade English teacher as well as my PSAT/SAT tutor. She was a phenomenal teacher who helped me grow not only as a student, but also as a person. Her bubbly and easy-going personality made working with her fun and enjoyable. Her caring nature made me feel like if I never needed someone to talk to I could turn to her. Being a junior, I had to get ready to take college admission tests, but with all new changes and all the different types of tests, I had no idea where to start. Luckily for me, Ms.Conrad was offering SAT/ACT/PSAT tutoring over the summer of my sophomore year. I was so excited to get a opportunity to work her again, I started immediately. She was really flexible and was always understanding of any difficulties or questions I had. She really brought out the best in me through each session so we accomplished every meeting. Now I can't wait to take my PSAT because, thanks to her, I feel confident and well prepared for it. I had also tried preparing for the PSAT through learning centers such as Sylvan, but the results and growth were nowhere near the same as working with Ms.Conrad. To the learning centers I was just another student, but Ms.Conrad really honed in on my strengths and weaknesses, she individualized my lesson plans so that whatever skills I, personally, struggled with she would help me improve on them. Her approach to the lessons made it so easy to follow and understand. I'm so thankful I worked with her because she did an amazing job and is definitely perfect fit for anyone looking for English or SAT/PSAT tutoring!

About

What a wonderful experience. My son is moving into the 7th grade and I wanted him to have a insight to the next level of math and sciences. After my sons initial consultation and testing, Amadou made some topic suggestions (algebra and Chemistry) and I was truly impressed with his understanding of exactly where my son was and what he needed. But most importantly after 3 weeks my son has grapsed the concepts taught by Amadou, he is happy and incredibly he looks forward to going to tutoring and it's the middle of summer. That's spectacular for me as a parent.

About

Charlie tutored my son for the ACT and did an exceptional job. He worked with him both on general test taking skills as well as the specific areas where he needed the most help. Charlie is great at working with boys who do not have the longest attention span, as well as those who may not feel they "need" tutoring. He really caters his tutoring style to what he believes will work best for that student. Charlie is also very flexible and was able to work in tutoring time around my son's other activities. After working with Charlie, my son felt much more confident in his ability to do well on the test and improved his scores significantly in all areas. We will be using him again for my daughter in a couple of years.

About

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.

About

I'm a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Chicago and interested in exploring neural sequence generation and the temporal precision that neurons in specific regions of the brain exhibit during specific complex motor behaviors. To approach this problem, I use record from identified neurons in the brain in conjunction with pharmacology and microstimulation. However, my work draws a lot from a set of computational and physiological techniques, including mathematical modeling and software development. Having a Ph.D. in Biomathematics enabled me to explore a large domain of beautiful mathematics and biology that I feel am ready to teach and share.

About

Hello! My name is Enyi O., and I just graduated from Harvard University in May 2013. At Harvard, I majored in Neurobiology with a minor in Global Health and Health Policy. I also served as president of Harvard's Nigerian Student Association and manager of the Harvard Men's Varsity Tennis Team. Before I left for Harvard, I attended Marian Catholic High School, where I was captain of the tennis team and a National Honor Society board member. While in high school, I scored a 35 on the ACT (35 English, 36 Math, 34 Reading, and 34 Science) and scored above 700 on 3 different SAT II Subject Tests (770 Math Level II, 760 Chemistry, and 710 History). Since then, I've been able to help over 85 students improve their ACT scores by an average of 4.3 points. In the past, I've worked for Revolution Prep, a leading national test prep company, and Gold Test Prep, a test prep company run by Harvard students. Right now, I'm preparing for business school, and I'm looking to help out current high-school students who wish to score high on the ACT or SAT. I'm offering one-on-one tutoring, both online and in person in the south suburbs of Chicago. I am flexible in regards to price and location, because I truly love to help students achieve their ACT score goals. Having applied and been accepted to 20 highly selective colleges (including all the Ivy Leagues), I am also providing extensive college admissions consulting, from general application strategies and essay reviews to mock interviews. Finally, in terms of tutoring and admissions consulting, I am offering free 30-minute to 1-hour consultations to discuss student goals, general test strategies, and the college admissions process. Please feel free to contact me if you want to know more about my services or experience. Thank you!
