Hi there! Although my formal background includes a BS in Social Communications from Escola Superior de Propaganda & Marketing (ESPM) in Sao Paulo, Brazil; a BFA in Interior Design from the Illinois Institute of Art in Schaumburg, IL; and my name has been quoted on books, magazines and several articles across US and Canada regarding Design Trends since 2009, you can find me teaching Sustainability, Interior Design, Computer related topics, Spanish, and Portuguese throughout Chicagoland.

If you want to learn from the source, let's talk. I am extremely committed to my clients and all my teachings are custom-tailored to their needs. When it comes to learning, there is no such a thing as "one size fits all".

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Adobe InDesign

Design is my life. Prior to becoming a registered interior design professional I spent over 10 years in the advertising industry working as graphic designer and art director. During that time I developed in-depth knowledge of industry standards graphic applications which I keep up-to-date. Learn how to create amazing layouts and much more from somebody who has been working with InDesign since its first release!

Adobe Photoshop

Design professional with 18 years of experience working with Photoshop.

Algebra 1

Proportions, fractions, percentage - all part of our life and yet a nightmare for many Algebra 1 students. By adopting an approach that focus on every day applications and problem solving I help students to understand why Algebra is important.

Architecture

I'm a registered interior designer in IL (Lic. No.161.003272) who has a formal education from the Illinois Institute of Art - Schaumburg and has passed on the National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ) exam.

Elementary (K-6th)

During the past 8 years I have been tutoring k-6th graders on Math (from geometric shapes to problem solving with basic operations, time and money) Social studies, and Science.

My past experience teaching and working with kids that don't have English as their first language, prepared me very well to tutor in all K-6 subjects. I'm also very patient and because I'm younger they feel like they can talk to me as I understand their language which makes the learning process much easier and pleasant.

ESL/ESOL

Moving to another place within your culture can be stressful but moving to another country and having to learning a new whole language is definitely overwhelming! During the past 10 years I have been helping foreigners to get adjusted to the American culture by teaching them how communicate properly in English.

General Computer

In 1985 my dad gave me my first computer with a card saying "This is the future. Learn it." He was right as technology is here to stay. In the 90's I was building computers from scratch and today my focus is on teaching others how to use computers in order to make their lives better. After all, with so much new technology being released on a daily basis, how will you survive in a computer-based world without knowing how to use it?

Geometry

Circles, triangles, squares, cubes, spheres. It doesn't matter which one you chose, geometry is everywhere. Using examples that are part of our every day lives, I can make learning Geometry a pleasant process.

Marketing

Recently nominated by the Daily Herald Business Ledger as one of the Influential Women in Business in 2012 and with a Bachelors Degree in Advertising and Marketing from one of the top schools in South America, Ms. Vollf has been using marketing tools to grow her client's business for the past 16 years.

Microsoft Word

My first experience using Word was in 1989 when the Windows was first released. Since then, I have been using Word on a daily basis. Whether you are looking for a job, writing a letter to a friend, or a document to client, having a poorly formatted document can be not only a very frustrating thing but also a deal breaker.

Unfortunately many people still don’t know the amazing features the Word has to offer. If you think of Word as an updated version of a typewriter, stop whatever you are doing and let’s talk.

My custom-tailored teaching method will assist you to overcome any difficulties you might have. After all, when it comes to teaching and learning, one size doesn't fit all.

Portuguese

Brazilian native with in-depth knowledge of the Portuguese language and the Brazilian culture. Whether you are looking to learn a new language or to improve your current skills, my custom-tailored teaching program will assist you to read, write and speak Brazilian Portuguese like a native!

Spanish

¡HOLA! Although Spanish originated on the Iberian Peninsula as a descendant of Latin, today we find Spanish being the second most spoken language in the world. By being one of the world's most phonetic languages, if you know how a word is spelled in Spanish, you can almost always know how it is pronounced. Whether you are looking for a new language to learn or you are need of assistance for your business and/or homework, I can help you!

Study Skills

Study skills is part of every tutoring as the student needs to understand what the book/exam is asking for in order to excel. I will teach how to gather only the necessary information to succeed in your studies. I also focus on developing organizational skills and studying methods that make the learn process more efficient.
