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.

As a Civil Engineer, I have had a good share of Physics classes. Construction is unimaginable without this knowledge! I can help you out in grasping the importance of this subject and how it is key to so many things in our surroundings.

I am a Civil Engineer specialized in Earthquake Engineering, but have diversified my background throughout the years (I am an avid student myself!).

Pedro is a very good tutor. He is patient and explains the subject matter well. The student was comfortable with him and therefore was able to ask questions whenever it was needed. I appreciated Predro's schedule flexibility as well.

I had no idea how lucky I would be to find Pedro. I am an interior designer learning Autocad and having no prior experience with the program, Pedro made it totally accessible. He is a phenomenal teacher and is so kind and patient. He provides foundational rules at the beginning of each session and has clear goals mapped out for every step of the way. We have done a number of exercises that I did not think would be possible for me to accomplish at this point. I am so grateful to have found him and highly recommend him!!!!!

My daughter was doing well but short of excelling in math. I sent her to Julia for that extra push and confidence that she needed. She really helped her have confidence and made her thorough with her concepts. She been doing really great ever since!

Julia is a highly knowledgeable, professional and personable teacher. My son has been tutored by her since the age of 4 and is now 13. His MAP and PARCC scores are off the charts and he just received his placements for Stevenson High School with the recommendations for the highest math classes offered to incoming freshmen. Julia taught him to love and be passionate about mathematics. Her primary goal is to make sure that the students learn in a stress-free environment and with that strategy she is able to accomplish brilliant results. I recommend Julia highly. She is very approachable and patient, loves children and loves what she does.

I have a bachelor's degree in Applied Linguistics with a minor in Psychology. I graduated summa cum laude with a 3.85 GPA. I also have special teaching licenses in TEFL and TESOL. I have been tutoring for 10+ years all grade levels and subjects, Mathematics, Sciences, Social Studies, and Language Arts. In my experience, no two students are alike, and I'm able to identify unique needs, to help each student progress. Students find me patient, kind and fun to work with. Regarding ESL tutoring, I have a deep understanding of the science and research behind the way English as a second language is learned. I also train teachers on state-adopted ESL materials, so I have access to great resources. I love technology and enjoy using it as a tool for my work. I'm flexible and can adapt to the way each individual student learns best.

I've been teaching chemistry for twenty years and my students have gone from no knowlegde at all to grasp the basic. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to use symbols, moles and equations to solve stoichiometry problems and as time goes on you'll be able to solve more complex problems about gases and thermodynamics. I specialize in stoichiometry, typically I use any chemistry book and have the following tools available for your lessons:Internet, cd's,calculator, and videos, . I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!
