$15-30/hr 4 yrs exp 30 yrs old

I was born and raised in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago and I graduated from University of Illinois with a Bachelors in Philosophy and Psychology. My Philosophy courses were all writing intensive with a focus on scientific and creative writing, while summarizing complex arguments into layman's terms. I began tutoring my younger sisters during High School and helped them throughout college (to help pay for Undergrad) while learning how to teach students of different age groups and backgrounds. My Psychology degree helps me understand human behavior and what motivates or drives people to achieve their goals. This knowledge coupled with my writing skills provides a unique advantage for me as I know how to build rapport quickly while understanding the needs of my students providing them with the best possible plan built specifically for their success. My methods are relaxed but strict while I offer small rewards at every victory to keep my students motivated and engaged without losing focus and interest. The better they do the more they are positively reinforced which continues to provide the energy and passion they need to be successful in their courses. If my students begin to plateau I identify where they are struggling to make progress and begin focusing on these areas specifically so they continue to make growth. My tutoring style is traditional but fun, and I try to give my students the skills and techniques they can continue using long after our sessions have finished. My goal is to teach the skills to continue improving on their own even when I am not there, and hopefully instill the proper studying and learning techniques which will aid them in College and their professional lives. My strengths are Reading Comprehension and Writing with a focus on Creative and Scientific writing. I will be attending Law School in the fall to hone my writing skills while obtaining a better understanding of the Law.
