My name is Tom and I have been tutoring students in various subjects for the past 4 years. I received my bachelor's in the biological sciences at Benedictine University. I have always enjoyed helping out others with what I am good at, and was told that one of the ways I can continue doing so is through tutoring. My experience began after I completed my first year of college and my mom, who was an elementary/HS math teacher, asked me to individually tutor one of her math students who was struggling. The boy seemed to have absorbed the lessons I had taught him better than his in-class lessons, for I was told that he did much better during that remaining semester. I then found myself helping out fellow college peers with course-work that I had already learned, and always enjoyed helping out others with their chemistry, math, and proofreading. I am also very good at creating visuals to help the student understand the coursework-material easier. I have been substitute teaching grades K-12 for about 4 years now. I was raised in a very large family (2nd oldest out of 6 kids). Aside from tutoring I continue to enjoy helping others as an Assistant Scoutmaster, Knights of Columbus member, and musician. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like some help!
My hourly rates are negotiable in accommodation to each students' specific needs.
For those parents who prefer a tutor with credentials...here are some of mine:
Knights of Columbus 4th Degree
4-H King Nominee
Schmitt Scholarship Award
Cuneo Foundation Award
Musical Talent Scholarship
