About Heather

My name is Heather and I'm currently attending the University of Chicago. I am a psychology and visual arts double major, and a cinema media studies minor. I'm looking to go into marketing and advertising full-time once I graduate, but one of my side hobbies is teaching. I've been doing it ever since my freshman year of high school, so needless to say, I have quite a bit of experience (about 7 years). I focus mostly on standardized test prep; elementary, middle and high school math; and writing. (Just as a reference, I scored a 2300 on my SAT, 800 for math, 700 for reading, and 800 for writing). I would say that my favorite subjects to teach are math and English (specifically writing and grammar), but I am definitely not limited to those subjects; just shoot me a message with your assignment or syllabus and I'll let you know if I think I'd be a good fit!
As for why I'm doing this, I tutor because I love interacting with other people and helping them improve academically. I feel like most teachers don't really care about their students or are just externally motivated, so I try to be the one person students can really count on for support. I want to make people love what they're learning, since I think that's the key to success.

I've been tutoring students in Geometry, Prealgebra, Algebra I and II, and the SAT for 5+ years. I have my own material for the SAT but usually teach the middle and high school math subjects from the student's school textbook. I can elaborate on my teaching experience and qualifications if anyone is curious; just message me!

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would just like a consult (those are free!). I promise that you won't regret it! I'm really friendly and guarantee to make our sessions fun, as well as helpful :)

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.
