Barbara T.  Springfield, IL 62703 (2.4 mi)  Math Tutor  $27.50/hr.
I am more of a hands on type of person and ask questions so that the student can explore and learn on their own. This will help them to be able to really learn the materials. I also cater my tutoring to the students involved. I have been teaching for more than fifteen years at the collegiate level and I have taught one year at the high school level. I also tutor students when I find students in need of extra assistance. I have worked in the insurance field for about fourteen years and worked in competitive environments in an actuarial department. I have also ran a small business for more than twelve years. I have a diverse number of experiences so that I can make mathematics practical and live for the student.

Victoria P.  Springfield, IL 62702 (2.7 mi)  Math Tutor  $35.00/hr.
While at Springfield College I started tutoring some of my fellow students in the areas of math and science for a little extra cash. I have always wanted to mimic the kind of tutoring I received as a struggling math student in middle school. I was never the best at math until I started to receive tutoring and everything started to click. The extra help I got in math was essential to my studies at the university level and all my previous coursework leading up. I want to be that tutor who helped everything click. When I tutor I try and understand where they are having trouble and try to find the best way of explaining in a way that is beneficial to the student.

Kara L.  Chatham, IL 62629 (7.4 mi)  Math Tutor  $42.50/hr.
I have 21 years of teaching experience, ranging from 8th grade through junior college. I have taught all high school math subjects, including AP Statistics and AP Calculus. In addition to my classroom experience, I have done years of private tutoring as well. It is through the perspectives gained from both these experiences that I continually learn about what works for kids in learning mathematics! I have a strong background in techonologyenhanced instruction, but believe strongly in a variety of approaches to teaching in order for students to gain lasting understanding of mathematics. My understanding of high school mathematics curricula is invaluable for pinpointing strengths and weaknesses of my students. Students are motivated by their own learning, but need to see relevance in their studies. My hope is that my students gain understanding of the role mathemtaics plays for futu

Keegan M.  Rochester, IL 62563 (8.2 mi)  Math Tutor  $25.00/hr.
I have never officially taught, but I have been told by my peers that they believe I would have some skill at it. Mostly, my teaching style would involve working through problems or homework step by step with a student at first, and then once they gain more confidence, allowing them to do more work on their own. Like learning to ride a bike, I believe that almost anything can be taught this way. I would hope to use as much visual aid as possible, and I really enjoy doing handson things when a subject calls for it. I want to help the student feel relaxed, but also determined and enthusiastic. I am, as of this past May, a high school graduate. I was copresident of the National Honors Society and a member of the Spanish National Honor Society at Rochester High School. I graduated third in my class, and I received awards for Physics, Vocal Music, Leadership, and Drama. I received A's in al

Eleanor H.  Jacksonville, IL 62650 (28.4 mi)  Math Tutor  $40.00/hr.
I am a huge supporter students tutoring students. I have found that working with students helps to take down a barrier between the tutor and tutee. Students are more comfortable to work with peers than an authority. My first priority is to listen, listen to what the tutee is looking to get out of the experience. Each student's needs are different and you have to plan around them. When I am tutoring I strive to make the tutee vocal. I like to allow students to think for themselves and see how they approach the challenge. I am there to guide their thinking process and strengthen their knowledge not lecture to them. I have worked as a tutor for 5 years. I worked as a volunteer peer tutor at my high school throughout my time there and fell in love with it. I am now a freshman at Saint Louis University majoring in biology on a premedical track. I have tutored in a variety of subjects rangin

Sarah W  Springfield, IL 62704 (1.7 mi)  Math Tutor  $40.00/hr.
I believe that each child/adult has a learning style unique to them. Finding what works and what makes learning fun, to me, are critical to success, especially to struggling learners. Positive reinforcement and encouragement are critical, as well. My background includes teaching at the elementary level and at the adult education level, especially literacy. I spent 10 years directing an adult literacy program where I trained volunteers to be tutors and tutored myself. During that time I took an intensive training course on working with people with learning disabilities. I have worked with ESOL students, as well.

Mary F  Springfield, IL 62704 (2.4 mi)  Math Tutor  $38.50/hr.
I had always wanted to be a teacher, but after teaching for several years I found that I enjoyed the oneonone experience more. I have a triple major in math education, elementary education and physical education. My professional experience includes math teacher, physics teacher, accountant, business owner and financial manager. I love helping people realize that they are smarter than they think. Seeing the look on a student's face when he/she grasps a new concept is a very rewarding experience.
I understand that most people want to do well, but have often encountered hurdles that don't allow them the success that they are seeking. A good tutor can help remove those hurdles and make a huge difference in the student's future success.

Darius D  Springfield, IL 62704 (2.7 mi)  Math Tutor  $35.50/hr.
I believe that students should be respected and challenged beyond the usual material they are expected to learn in order to demonstrate proficiency in their coursework. I believe that students learn best by first having their imaginations stimulated and then given concrete examples of the concepts with which they have been presented. Physics is a subject where both ideas and concepts can be discussed in the classroom and can then be demonstrated by experiments in the laboratory. Combining these elements will provide a compelling environment for my students to explore and master their understanding of the physical world. I worked for 14 years as a Project Engineer for the Illinois Department of Nuclear Safety before deciding to start a new career as a teacher of high school physics. I attended the Transition to Teaching program at Calument College in Whiting Indiana and completed my S

Kiley U  Springfield, IL 62703 (3 mi)  Math Tutor  $38.00/hr.
I was a very shy child, and have been able to find comfort within to obtain success in not only the classroom, but in life. I am good at drawing students out of their shell, and figuring out how they can be most comfortable with academics to benefit the most from their education. I believe that my success in a tutoring situation is as dependent on the student’s style of learning as it is on my method of tutoring. I recognize not everyone learns the same way. I am a believer of asking the student where they are struggling and what they feel the problem is, so I can mold the tutoring session to best benefit him, or her, based on personality and comfort. This approach has found success whether I was coaching, guiding, or teaching. My entire educational career has been based on my innate drive for excellence.

Amy M  Riverton, IL 62561 (6.4 mi)  Math Tutor  $37.00/hr.
I enjoy teaching a great deal. I love children, and believe every child has the capacity to succeed. My job is not only to give children the content knowledge, but to build their selfesteem and help them realize their own potential. In my experience, students who lack selfesteem often perform poorly in school, even if they know the material. My job is to build their self image while giving them the skills they need to excel. After graduating from college with a degree in English, I pursued a career in the corporate field. I did not find it satisfying and yearned to return to school to pursue a master's in education. I began substitute teaching in spring of 2007 and completed my student teaching in December 2007. I have been teaching English since I finished student teaching and have been a tutor at Sylvan for some time. I tutor all areas, from beginning to advanced reading and math, wr

Joseph C  Chatham, IL 62629 (7.1 mi)  Math Tutor  $35.00/hr.
I truly enjoy helping children reach their full potential. I believe that children who don't understand a subject just haven't had it explained to them in their way of learning and I believe I can find their way. I use patience, understanding, and humor to ease their minds but still am able to convey a sense of high expectation of them. Then, I explain concepts to them in a variety of ways until they can comprehend the subject manner. This includes using diagrams, creating a reallife situations where the concept is applied, drawing analogies that to which they can relate, or developing a game out of the lesson. In the end, it is their success that is my true reward. I graduated from Monmouth College with a B.A Degree in Mathematics while being a fouryear starter and twoyear football team captain. I can serve as an example that studies and extracurricular activities can go hand in hand
