Kelicia D.

Chicago, IL

Bgcheck Background Checked


I’ve been tutoring students for about 2 years now and I like to do more visual learning. Which means I like use things like white boards, play games like “Jeopardy” and many more math games. Not only are my games fun but students have to told me that they now like math because of my lessons. I specialize with beginner/intermediate math students. So if your interested don’t be afraid to shoot me a message. And hopefully we will get to have a fun time together learning math/algebra.

About Kelicia

I started tutoring once I graduate high school. I use to tutor students in high school but I never really thought I could’ve been good at it. But once I got to college I started tutoring athletes and realized the amount of process that had in the subject. I love to see my students process in the

I help students master the fundamentals of essay writing, with a strong focus on structure and cohesion. Drawing from classical models of rhetoric and argumentation, I teach students a no-nonsense approach that will allow them to master the ubiquitous five-paragraph essay as well as improve their ability to put their thoughts to paper more generally.

Writing has been a central preoccupation for me since I was little. My writing has been published in a number of publications, including the Twin Cities Daily Planet, Dusted Magazine, Cacophony Magazine, and the Walker Art Center Magazine. I have presented original papers at Northwestern University's Block Museum as well as the annual Mental Health America Conference held in Washington, D.C.

I look forward to getting to know you and figuring out together how best to meet your individual needs.

I studied music and comparative literature at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, Minnesota, a city with a thriving music scene.

I am a french born. I taught High school in French for 5 years. Currently on my free time I work for fluent interpreting for French (and other as I speak about 5 languages) patients who have doctor's appointments. The interpretation is done face to face or on the phone depending patient needs.
Also in the past I have translated documents from English to French to some non profit organization!
I love French and I will be delighted to share my love to my students.

About Emmanuel

I was born in a French speaking country, I did all my education from elementary to college in French (18 years). I taught High school in French before moving to United States of America. Folks who know say I am very talented in French. I will love to have you as my student and I promise to do all

If you've ever struggled with Algebra and wished you had someone that could explain it to you in a way that you could understand, I may be the teacher for you. My students learn because I adapt the lessons to their own personal experiences and interests. When students can make math personal, they have a much better chance of excelling at it.

About Rob

I am an easy going, knowledgable and creative teacher. I strive to put the students and their personal needs first. I'm very aware that each student/person learns differently and I incorporate various strategies of learning into my lessons. There is a lot of humor and dialogue with my lessons, al

Rob is an amazing teacher! My 6 year old daughter is very energetic, and has challenges staying on task. Rob makes every class fun, and adjusts his style or plan to keep her interested in the guitar lesson. I feel like she has learned a lot in a short period of time. I highly recommend Rob!

No show. I was set up and ready 10 minutes ahead of time, and 15 minutes after we were supposed to start I gave up. No call. no email, nothing. I called him at 6:20 to be told his day was screwed up by a funeral, and I told him my dog ate my homework. Pathetic. I knew I had a lesson, he must have known he had one to give, and no notification whatsoever. I don't do business like this.

Susan is a wonderful French teacher both for adults and kids. We have had her as an in-home teacher for both over the past few years during the school year. She is very patient with the kids and keeps it fun for them, and also is a great conversationalist with the adults. I can’t recommend her enough. She is also versatile enough to teach German as well.

After 5 hours teaching sessions with Andy, and without having any prior knowledge on accounting, I felt confident in the fundamentals. He is excellent in helping someone thoroughly understand the subject matter. He is patient, flexible and highly professional and I would highly recommend Andy to anyone seeking a tutor."

5 Myths and Realities for Writing Fiction

Writing fiction comes with a number of myths that keep many people from giving it a serious try. Don't them get you down! Here are a few things that you might hear about the industry as you're learning how to write fiction--and the reality behind them. 1.
