Avg response < 1 hrs
I have primarily focused on tutoring myself. For instance, I self-studied my way to passing Illinois' Bar Exam, and to a 98-percentile score on the LSAT. I just started a law-focused tutoring company/service -- Law School. Guru -- for the provision of pre-law, LSTA/GRE, law school, and bar exam tutoring. I am currently tutoring about four LSAT/Bar Exam students. Beyond law and analytic thinking, I can teach a number of subjects and skills -- academic, emotional, social, etc. -- to students of any ages. In addition, I provide tutoring-focused childcare.

Is Your Kid Ready For The JUMP.
Avg response < 8 hrs
Hello! My name is Brandi, also known as The Literacy Acrobat. I am a primary special education teacher. If you're a parent to a kindergartner, first- or second-grader, the jump is coming. It's a crucial change in academic expectations that happens in third grade. This is when students move from learning to read, to reading to learn. They are no longer taught letter sounds and decoding at this stage, but are expected to read proficiently enough to use their skills to independently access content and answer higher-level questions about the reading. That's the jump. As a CPS teacher, I work with grades K-3, but if your son or daughter is older than that and still struggling, it's not too late! I am passionate about getting all my students up to grade level and beyond. I come with my own materials: hands-on activities, worksheets and leveled books you get to keep, and even progress monitoring so you can see your child's growth! This is a labor of love.
