Amadou C.

Chicago, IL

About Amadou

I am a distinguished graduate with Summa Cum Laude honors from Ivy Tech College. I make it my duty to break down many of the complexities in math and science that have been plaguing students since the beginning of time. I have over 7 years of teaching experience, and I have taught several middle-school and high-school students math, science and ACT/SAT prep who have went on to make 180 degree turns in their grades under my instruction. And because I have worked with such a vast diversity of people over the span of 16 countries throughout the world, I have developed the patience and understand
ing that is crucial in producing stellar students. Age has never been a problem with me, as I've helped several post-graduate students straighten out their grievances in math and science.

As an engineering major at IIT, I naturally maintain an exemplary study ethic that inspires my students to achieve more. I bring results. I relate to my students by incorporating elements of the things that they like (sports, hobbies, music, etc...) into their most challenging courses allowing them to develop a passion for the courses I tutor. Additionally, I always make a conscious effort to work at each student's own pace and I make it my priority to decompose enigmatic topics into components that can be more easily internalized by my students, effectively increasing their grades and giving them the self-confidence and enthusiasm they need to fuel their future academic endeavors. I guarantee quality, commitment, and a passion for training my students to be the best.

I have lived in over 20 countries, which allowed me to speak several languages, and which permitted me to maintain my patience, élan and spirit of enthusiasm when dealing with even the most extreme personalities. I have solid background in both math and the natural sciences, as I have consistently maintained a 4.0 G.P.A since high school. I am now studying mechanical engineering at IIT, and I have gotten 5s in all of my AP Chemistry, AP Physics and AP Biology exams. I have also been the winner of many STEM-related competitions, through my demonstrating of exemplary leadership qualities and through my brainstorming of blue-sky ideas. I am also a "Mental-Math" practitioner, reflexologist and guitarist. I believe that everyone has potential; however potential is worthless unless put in motion. And experts like me value ourselves in our abilities to give students that push, that jolt of energy that galvanizes them into pulling themselves up by their own bootstraps, allowing them to achieve academic excellence.

Amadou has been a great help for our daughter. She was struggling in her class and wasn't exactly seeing eye-to-eye with the teacher. Amadou was able to identify her strength/weaknesses and encouraged her to not doubt her initial instincts. While it took sometime for her to realize it, he influenced her to change her study habit. He followed up with us by providing addition work/practice problems that strategically enabled her to work in a "harder" problem. I do believe that he is worth every penny.

Amador is a really great tutor! He's a very chill, funny guy that allows students to connect better. Be able to communicate is the most important part between teacher and student. It makes it easier to learn if i am able to share my problems without embarrassment knowing that he will help me in whatever way he can. Thanks Amadou!

Laura S.

Chicago, IL

About Laura

Hi! I am a linguist, educator, and yogi and I am passionate about sharing my skills!

Please note that I do not travel outside the city of Chicago.

ESL/Foreign Language Tutoring:
I am a currently pursuing my MA in Applied Linguistics and TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). I majored in Romance Languages at New York University and have been providing private language tutoring since 2007, when I lived and studied in Brazil. I have helped ESL students prepare for job interviews and essay tests; I have helped Portuguese students prepare for vacations to Brazil and Portug
al and voting rights work in Angola. I held a career in the translation industry for seven years before beginning my current MA program.

I have an excellent command of grammar and incorporate usage and vocabulary into each custom-tailored lesson. I encourage my students to use the materials they find most beneficial to their learning process, be they news articles, poetry, songs, or novels. I am happy to work from a language book of your choice or hand-design my own exercises for you in response to your particular needs. Homework will be assigned, but it will be fun and easy!

So far, Laura has given me one private yoga lesson, and it was excellent. Before our meeting, she asked me what problem areas I wanted to work on and came prepared with a list of probably 20 poses to show me. I had never taken a yoga class before, so I was understandably awkward and inflexible, but she was very patient in showing me the correct way to accomplish each pose. She was receptive to feedback throughout the lesson about what felt good and what didn’t feel quite right, and gently corrected me as we went along.

Additionally, I’ve worked with Laura for several years in a project management capacity. She’s fluent in Portuguese and has an excellent command of French and Spanish. I’ve seen her prep work for one of her private language students and can tell that she cares deeply about teaching, and puts quite a bit of time into preparing for each lesson. I would highly recommend her for any type of lessons you’re looking to take!

When I started taking classes with Laura, I had been down-spiraling after surgery watching my physical capabilities consistently not meeting my expectations after working for months to be released for full activity. It is hard for me to remember myself then, as I have progressed so much with her guidance. She has always worked diligently to ensure I was not risking re-injury while pushing me just enough that I have seen so much progress with no setbacks.

Because I have had such a great experience, I have brought many others to her classes and they always feel she gives them individual attention, explains all the poses thoroughly, and makes them feel comfortable. This hold true for those coming from all experience levels and with a variety of medical/physical concerns. They have all wanted to go back and some say they are shocked that they like it so much because they thought yoga was something they would never be able to do. I look forward to her class every week.

I've been practicing yoga for a few years now pretty regularly. I have been to a multitude of Laura's classes. She is simply just one of the best yoga instructors I've taken classes from. She is so highly skilled at gauging her students, pushing everyone of her students just the right amount. Laura does this with the utmost patience and sweetness. She's knowledgeable in many different types of yoga and can custom build yoga classes to strengthen or sooth any group of muscles you might need. I walk away from her yoga classes feeling like a million bucks and usually raving to someone about the class.

Jimmy T.

Chicago, IL

About Jimmy

My name is Jimmy. I have been teaching Spanish for about three years now. Currently, I teach at a private-school in Atlanta, Georgia.

As a teacher, my primary goal is to make sure the students have engaging and fun experiences while learning Spanish. I do not lecture on the nuts and bolts of the language but rather allow the student to perform the language in order to learn it.

I am always excited to teach someone this language I love so much.

¡Gracias!

Cyrus is a wonderful Spanish teacher. I have met with him once a week where we conduct the majority of each lesson in Spanish. I wanted more practice on speaking/listening and build confidence in speaking to others in Spanish. He always comes prepared with customized material for you at each lesson, but, if I bring any material or topics of my own, is able to effectively teach and tailor the lesson to that. He is able to recognize where there have been gaps in my education of Spanish, and is able to both challenge me in areas I need to be challenged while also meeting me at my level in areas where that's what is best. He speaks clearly, is incredibly patient, and explains things very well. I've had a great experience with Cyrus, and recognize him a a teacher who goes above and beyond for his students.
