About Julia
Hi! My name is Julia A. I have been tutoring students of all ages and skill levels at learning centers, colleges, libraries and schools since 2008.

My instruction extends nationwide, with students from all corners of the US, utilizing online tutoring services such as Skype.

My main field of study is in MATH (trig, algebra, geometry, precalculus), CHEMISTRY (high school and college), and PHYSICS (high school and college).

I completed my Bachelors in Physics and Mathematics Education at Hunter University and have gained experience with both in-person and online group instruction and curriculum development.

Some examples of the students I have tutored are: Elementary school students preparing for State competitions and exams; High school and College students in preparance for entrance exams, and in subjects such as algebra, geom
etry, trig, precalc, chemistry and physics.

I do Regents and SAT/ACT prep for these subjects as well as the GRE (These are NYS based High School Preparatory Exams - do not hesitate to ask should you need assistance with the ones offered in your state/country).

In addition, I am thorough and meticulous, by paying special attention to how the student grasps information and retains it, I prepare individualized handwritten reviews, with supplemental material found online and in texts.

I assign homework to keep my students ahead of what is going on in class, and a visual and intuitive understanding of the concepts I present is important to me, so I use visual aids (diagrams and interactive models) to help my students integrate what they learn with me in real life situations.

My instruction includes:
1. Tutoring based on the school curriculum
2. Instruction on the home-schooling curriculum
3. Assisting those with a gap in going back to school/university.

I start with an assessment based on what the student has trouble with or last remembers covering in school, and prepare material going from there.

As a result, my students all have improved grades without any need for cramming before tests, and I encourage a stress-free and easygoing learning environment.

My lessons are fun and enthusiastic - these subjects are beautiful and will help open your mind to new ways of thinking - whatever your field of study!

Julia creates her own curriculum which is better than anything my daughters receive in their schools.
I see marked improvements in their grades for this past year, and my eldest is actually skipping fourth grade as a result of lessons. I am astounded as to my girls' progress, and greatly appreciative of our tutor's expertise.
Her patient, methodical approach to teaching is why I see us remaining with her for all of our educational instruction. She has already taught arithmetic to my youngest (3rd grade), and algebra to my eldest (starting 5th this sept!), and is proceeding with more advanced math with no issue whatsoever. I cannot recommend her enough.

About Dovile
I began teaching while studying in Art Institute. My first students were 5 to 7 yr. old kids. It was very challenging, but also very rewarding. I was teaching them skills, they were teaching me patience. Later the age of my students grew, until I ended up teaching the same students I was in the same classes just 6 months ago. Again another challenge. I love challenges and even more I love helping others to overcome them.
My philosophy about teaching is that everybody can learn, it is only the way how we learn is different for different people. Another very important thing - I strive to be creative, respectful and approachable.

About Felicia
I learned to sew in Vacation Bible School at my church when I was in 7th grade. I made my first pair of overalls and was on top of the world. That began my love of sewing and all things crafty. Today I love working as a special education teacher. But my first love is teaching beginner and intermediate level sewing to kids and adults. I have two children (1 in college and 1 in 10th grade) and when I'm not working or sewing I help my husband at his sports training facility.

My Crafty Table Sewing and Craft Studio teaches children how to use math skills to sew. All of our "leveled" projects are connected to national learning standards and offers a wide range of opportunities for all ability levels for kids 10 years old and up. Our local classes uses a children's sewing curriculum, while our online classes uses commercial patterns. Stud
ents learn hand and machine sewing, sewing vocabulary and techniques, and various equipment and and safety usage. We host a small, friendly, relaxed setting which is what I find allows children to have the courage to explore, make mistakes, and discover their talents.

My Crafty Table isn't just for kids! I welcome adults who are looking to learn to sew or enhance their current skills. Whether you are looking to create something to wear or something to beautify your home, we can teach you how to bring your ideas to reality. Our online and live classes utilize commercial patterns, sewing machines, and a variety of supplies based on projects being completed. We guide you every step of the way from selecting materials to recommending supplies. The only question you need to answer now is: SEW what"s next?

Felicia is absolutely amazing. My daughter has learned so much in the short time that she has been taking classes. She loves every minute of it and makes sure she is at every class.

If you are looking to take sewing classes you definitely want her as your instructor.

I just want to say, "I am very pleased working with Thomas." I never thought that I could master the game of chess especially by being impatient and a slower learner. This is my fourth lesson and I have already played a game of chess. Thank You So Much, Thomas. I can't wait until my next lessons.

About Angela
I learned to crochet in grade school, taught myself to knit and learned to sew from my mother at a very early age. Teaching grade school children/students is my passion. I believe learning to knit and sew can help students learn a level of patience and persistence that will help them in their school work.
In October, I retook and passed the NCLEX, and I have restored my nursing license to active status. I would love to tutor nursing students of all levels. My professional background is in Pediatrics - especially Pediatric Critical Care. I'm especially passionate about helping nursing students that need help with basic math/algebra.

Angela is awesome! She is kind, patient, organized, gives clear instructions and very easy to work with. My dogs barked the entire time and my home is less than white-glove clean; but she puts you at ease and you never feel talked down too or judged in any way. You will not be sorry for choosing her as your teacher.

About Cheryl
Crochet is my passion and God-given talent and I love to share what I learn with others! I've been crocheting off and on since age 10 via books, dedicated teachers, YouTube, crochet magazines, and online communities including Ravelry, Pinterest, crochet blogs, yarn company websites to name a few. I love trolling for online patterns, can interpret the unique crochet "language" and have literally binders full of crochet patterns I've saved over the years.

Friends and family know what to to expect from me as gifts--handmade crochet items. They have encouraged me to sell my creations...

I've been teaching for almost 10 years, offering private and group lessons up to five students. Also, I am a current member of the Crochet Guild of America (CGOA) since 2009.

Lessons are designed for folks who have never picked up a crochet hook or w
ho want to refresh their skills or learn new ones. Lessons are available online, at your home or my studio.

About Rush
I'm hoping to get to work with students who want to dive right into mastering their camera and all it has to offer, whether we're shooting on film or digital, both of which I can offer instruction in. Learning to be in absolute control of your camera and how your settings will affect your photos is key to creating your images & making sure they come out exactly the way you envision them. Our time together will be a full immersion into light-writing. Over the years, I have had approximately 4 years of cumulative formal instruction on the subject, and have been freelancing since 2011, for events such as weddings, anniversaries, baby/bridal showers, graduation and engagement photos, live concerts, and just about anything else you can think of. Previously a Photography student of Daytona State College in Florida, I made the move up to Chicago
in 2015, and am currently studying at Harold Washington College. In the spring I will graduate with my Art Studio AFA. I genuinely look forward to any time spent with someone with a desire to hone their craft, and hope to bring more inspiration to those wanting to bring forth their vision. Aside from photography, I also teach a handful of other subjects that you or someone else may be interested in!

guitarist in a local Chicago band LOOMS. a year ago we asked Rush to design a flier for some of our upcoming shows. we were so in love with what he made for us, that I ended up reaching out on my own to ask for photoshop tips. we did one "formal" lesson (this was before he was registered on the website) and man we covered a lot in 45 mins. i was surprised when rush told me he is still in school. you would have no idea from the way he conducts his lessons.
