She is good. When I make mistakes, she notes and correct me or prepare for the next time. It's really helpful.

Ms. Rachel was a great Spanish instructor. Her schedule was always very flexible, and she taught me a lot of material in the time allotted. Also, Ms. Rachel always created lesson plans before our lessons so I knew exactly what I would be learning that day. She keeps in touch with her students even after they're done taking lessons. If you're considering taking lessons, you should definitely have Ms. Rachel as your instructor.

Amadou C.

Chicago, IL

I love teaching physics because I have always been a scientist at heart, from making trebuchets in the attic, to forcing a thermometer into boiling water to see if it passes 100 degrees centigrade before evaporating, in order to confirm the laws of the physical states of matter. I love spreading my love of physics to others, because it makes me happy when I can have elaborate conversations about simple machines with random individuals. In order to have those conversations, I must first break physics down to a level in which others can easily grasp its concepts. I do this by applying concept decomposition, which is explaining the theory behind all of the abstract formulas and laws that riddle classical physics. Let's stop letting physics surprise us, and let's surprise it when you ace your electrostatics test, and 'Flummox Physics'.

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 years of experience, and 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 understanding that is cruci
al in producing stellar students. And age is never a problem with me, as I've helped several post-graduate students straighten out their grievances in math and science. I am majoring in mechanical engineering, so naturally, I maintain an exemplary study ethic that inspires my students to achieve more. All in all, I bring results. I know how to relate to my students, by incorporating some of the things that they like (sports, hobbies, music, etc...) into their most challenging courses in order for them to eventually foster a passion for them. I make a conscious effort to work at each student's own pace and I make sure to decompose enigmatic topics into components the can be more easily consumed by my students, effectively increasing their grades and giving them the self-confidence and optimism they need to fuel their future academic endeavors. I guarantee quality, commitment, and a passion for training my students to be the best. I am also sophomore in college who loves sharing his knowledge with others. I was always the kid in class who was constantly trying to make sure all of the others understood the material. I have been to over 16 countries in the world, including France, the UK and even Djibouti in the horn of Africa. And as a result of these extended expeditions, I can speak French fluently. I also have a very strong background in math and in the natural sciences. I have consistently maintained a 4.0 G.P.A since 11th grade, am now taking Calculus III, 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 "Mental-Math" expert and tutor. Everyone has potential, but potential is worthless unless one can make it kinetic. In other words. you need to set your abilities in motion in order to achieve your goals. And fortunately, you have experts like me who are dedicated to helping you make that a reality. ~

The most wonderful thing about Amadou is his innate capacity to connect with young people, and in doing so, he make the tutoring sessions and the learning that takes place seemingly fluid and effortless. I hired him to tutor my 10 year old son in math. We met at his office in Hyde Park and we stayed with him for about 2 months, but then we had scheduling conflicts. My son has an innate ability with math (inherited from my husband). He's very intuitive with it, but he also had a problem with focusing and taking time to work through each and every step (also inherited from my husband). He would get frustrated working with me, so I thought having someone else who would make math fun and challenging would ensure that he was advancing appropriately in math. Amadou's sessions were structured, he factored in breaks (incl. snacks!) and he provided workbooks and homework that he would go over the next lesson. He was always looking for ways to engage my son's mind, but make it interesting. He went step by step through a sample problem,, and then would work through additional problems and point out errors and talk them through with my son. He was also open to listening to me when I made suggestions about content and approach. He was very good. As my son told me, "an hour just flies by with Amadou, it doesn't feel like work at all!" I recommend him highly.

Amadou has a great way of relating with children and providing them with techniques for math. He had my son learning for hours and increased his math and French grade to an A. Even my son teacher saw the growth in his math skills.

Anish R.

Chicago, IL

As a physics major, I'm quite confident teaching basic physics. I work to make sure students understand the fundamentals of the science, not simply to how to use equations. Ideally, the student will become more confident in his/her problem solving abilities, not just the knowledge of a specific branch of the science.

About Anish

I am a recently graduated IIT student with a degree in physics and a minor in applied math, and will soon be attending DePaul for a masters in applied math. I've worked at the Musuem of Science and Industry, where I taught science programs to a variety of people, from elementary school kids to adults. Currently I'm tutoring with Sylvan Learning part time, where I'm teaching algebra to high school students. I'm currently studying acting and improvisation in my spare time, in addition to my other hobbies.

I'm comfortable teaching basic math (algebra, calculus etc), physics, and could probably
also help with ACT math. I can be flexible with rates depending on the situation, and can teach at your home if it's around 30 minutes away by CTA from where I live. I can also teach at my apartment, a nearby coffee place or somewhere else convenient to the both of us.

Feel free to contact my via email (aramana3@iit.edu) or text (8478735974).

Michael P.

Chicago, IL

Qualification: Physics minor from the University of Chicago. I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of Physics skills. I teach AP Physics as well as introductory and college level material. Students can also expect thorough preparation of any material they provide me from their classes.

About Michael

I've been playing drums and percussion around the world for over fifteen years, mostly for fun but with a few professional gigs thrown in there as well. Most recently, I have just ended a stint with my heavy metal band Erlang Kovata. Our album 'Shattered' has been nominated for best metal/hardcore album at the independent music awards. Prior to that, I played with a number of different groups and organizations: a couple of student groups at the University of Chicago, the Middlebury College Orchestra, the Champlain Philharmonic, Bella Voce Women's Chorus, the Vermont Youth Orchestra, and more.
I have given occasional drum lessons through the years, but my teaching experience comes mostly through my time as an English Teacher in South Korea, and as an Academic Tutor for the past several years. My teaching focuses for drums will be hard rock, heavy metal, and unpitched percussion.

I have also excelled academically, with my academic career culminating in an Economics B.A., Physics Minor with General Honors from the University of Chicago.

Mike is an absolute professional. I had the pleasure of working and learning from him over a two year period. His approach to music is creative, fun and educational. He creates an atmosphere of ease, where ideas can roam freely. His skill lies in understanding and instructing academic music theory in an easy and exciting way. With Mike, you not only get a perfect theory base but you will be able to explore your full potential to become an amazing, confident drummer. Trust me, he has helped me a lot in the way I see music today. Thanks Mike.

We've had the pleasure of working with Michael in the recording studio and we loved his professionalism. The only thing that tops his reliability and friendly nature is his musical ability. We love hearing from Michael about all the great music he is making and about the students he is sharing his amazing talent with.
