About Bertina
Hi, my name is Bertina and I have been tutoring math for college student since 2003. I graduated with a Bachelors in Elementary Education from Northern Illinois University in the spring of 2007 and started working with students with autism and other disabilities since 2008. In 2010, I started working for a tutoring company helping students achieve their academic goals and improve their test-taking skills in ACT prep.

When working with students, I always do my best to develop a really good rapport with the student and to help engage them in a lesson that works around their strengths and wea
knesses. I like to focus on both the strengths and weaknesses for the student so that he or she can improve in all areas. I like to develop a positive relationship not only with my student, but also with the parent so that with the communication, we can work as a team and accomplish a great deal more! I look forward to hearing from you soon!

About S. Najaf
Hi, there! My name is Najaf and I am kind of new to takelessons. I can be flexible with timings and teach online or a public place like a library (I don't teach at peoples homes). Academia wise I went to a small college prep school, graduated 1 year early (skipping 12th grade) and am currently studying computer science.

I could teach (and help with homework) with elementary, high school, and some college level Physics, Chemistry, Math, and English (specifically essay writing). I could also help in Python computer programming and HTML Web Design (I am still learning these myself). Essay wri
ting is something I specifically focus on, whether its for college applications or just for class, and I would be willing to help in the college admission process, including interview practice, resume buffing, scholarship finding and perhaps others.
