About Forrest

Hello! My name is Forrest and I'm excited to be working as a tutor.

I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Writing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where I also studied art history, graphic design and printmaking, among other subjects. During my time at the Art Institute, I worked as a tutor in the school's Writing Center, assisting both undergraduate and graduate students, particularly non-native English speakers, with writing and research. I developed long-term relationships with numerous students working on theses, grants proposals and artist statements, as well as many other assignments.

More recently, I've been attending classes locally in the hopes of going back to school for a graduate degree. I'm about to complete the fourth math course (calculus I) I've taken in the past year, and will soon begin work in the sciences.

It's important that students have concrete goals for learning, both for each tutoring session and in the long-term, and I'm happy to help them set up those sort of objectives. I'm relaxed and friendly, but I don't waste time. I try to work with students in whichever way is most comfortable and effective for them. If they don't know what that is yet, we'll figure it out together.

I hope to hear from you soon!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT English

I'm an excellent standardized test taker and really seem to understand them. I majored in writing in college, so I took a number of English courses.

ACT Reading

I'm an excellent standardized test taker and really seem to understand them. Again, due to the nature of my college coursework, as well as my continued interest in reading, I have a great understanding of the subject.

English

I've spoken English my entire life, excelled at it in school, and majored in writing in college. I have over two and a half years experience as an English tutor (undergraduate and graduate level), as well as additional work experience as an editor and copywriter.
