About Craig

Hi! I came to the tutoring field after several years of working in the insurance industry. I decided I wanted to do something more relevant with my life and that's why, at 40, I decided to go into school counseling. I took courses at night and then did an internship at Bremen High School, where I learned my craft both as a counselor and a tutor. I bring experience in the "real world" as well as my time as a counseling intern. Also, having been a student myself just recently I know how tough it is to balance homework with a home life and so I know what you're going through as a student. I'm here to help.

I have a Masters in School Counseling and a Type 73 certificate, so I am able to provide post-secondary as well as emotional/social counseling. However, I also have a Bachelor's degree in Political Science with a minor in History from Illinois State so I am qualified to tutor in any areas regarding government, political systems, and history.

My style in counseling and in tutoring is to challenge you and push you to your top speed. That means talking to you and understanding where you are and discovering where you can go. I want this to be an interactive experience for you - I can't teach you anything you don't want to know, so we half to meet halfway. I'm not a dictator, I'm a collaborator.

Right now I am not working as I'm searching for a job in counseling, so that means I am extremely flexible in my time. I can go where you need me to be to make things as comfortable as possible for you.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

I have been playing tennis for more than 20 years. I have also assisted in teaching tennis at the high school level and I have competed at a national level in United States Tennis Association competitions. I am known for my patience and my ability to communicate with my students.
