Hello! I am currently a student at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign majoring in biochemistry, and I am very excited to spend time this summer tutoring students in the nearby area. In high school, I was a peer tutor for several students consistently. I have tutored in ACT (Score: 34) and SAT preparation, mathematics, chemistry, and German I. Through this experience, I spent over 300 hours over four years helping classmates who struggled with certain concepts pinpoint exactly where they were having difficulty. I feel that after these four years, I have become more patient with all the students I tutor, especially the ones in younger grades.
One particular example that sticks out to me is a friend who had to miss her first semester of junior year of high school due to a family issue. When she returned to school, I helped her work through geometry and Algebra II material almost every day for two and a half months of the semester. She told me that she had previously struggled in this material but now felt much more confident with the classes. I felt so humbled and rewarded that I was able to use my time and efforts to help her.
I would like to use this opportunity as a way to communicate with students and instill confidence in each student. My goal as a one-on-one tutor is to meet the needs of you or your child's learning style. Tutoring is a very valuable part of my life, because it helps me afford my own educational goals while being able to help others with theirs. I am available on Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays this summer and have a flexible schedule on these three days. I also do not charge for the first hour of tutoring so you and/or your child have some time to decide if you would like to continue. I try to keep my rates as low as possible, as I truly believe that a quality education should be accessible for students of all backgrounds. I look forward to meeting you, and please feel free to reach out to me with any questions!
