About Connie

As a graduate from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism—one of the the top-ranked journalism schools in the nation, I have years of writing and editing experience in the academic and professional realms. Additionally, I published a legal studies thesis at Northwestern, which was supervised by Dr. Lara Beth Nielsen of the American Bar Foundation.

As a tutor, I have over over ten years of experience specializing in reading and writing, college essay writing, math, and the advanced sciences. I am a published writer and author, and I have worked for a number of publications including San Francisco Magazine, Orange County Register, and Chicago Innocence Project.

Other credentials: I earned above 98 percentile on the Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, and Analytical Writing (5.5) sections on the GRE. I also received 4.0 (A levels) in notoriously complex college-level sequences like General Biology, Microbiology, Physics, Calculus, and Anatomy and Physiology.

My students have seen increases in their grades up to A's, and increases into the top percentiles in SAT and also GRE exams. Additionally, I have experience working with students who have learning disabilities and dyslexia, and I thoroughly enjoy watching my students learn and connect ideas together. I also love helping my students organize, as well as coach in time management. I will thoroughly help my students synthesize complex ideas, as well as adapt to multiple learning methodologies.

Qualifications:
-Years of tutoring experience with America Reads in Chicago
-AP Scholar with Honors (over 10 AP courses taken), High School Valedictorian/Top 2%
-Dean's List, Northwestern University's Legal Studies Honors, work with the Innocence Project in Chicago

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have worked with ADD/ADHD students for over 10 years. I am very patient and understand the difficulties of the learning process.

Ballet

I previously trained in Chicago with Ballet Chicago, as well as Larry and Sarma Rosenberg at Anaheim Ballet. I have been featured in many roles in the Nutcracker and other ballets.
