Daniel T. ...When I work individually with students, I begin by breaking down difficult concepts and then work through a few example problems together. At the end, I have students teach me how to apply the concepts with a new problem in order to solidify the material. Keeping sessions interactive engages students and ensures that they are developing mastery of the material.

Peter D. ...I love teaching young people not only the step by step processes of solving math problems, but also the concepts behind these processes. I'm passionate about what I do and live for those a-ha moments with my students. Seeing a student finally understand a difficult concept and develop confidence in their abilities is a thrill that I always look forward to.

Amit S. ...Anyone, literally anyone, can do math and I love finding students who think they can't, turning their attitudes and grades around! I love math, and this comes across in my teaching! I have taught during my undergraduate degree and am currently a teaching assistant at UIC in Calculus I, so I have experience teaching a range of students with a range of abilities.
