About Me

I have been tutoring students for as I like to say 'Two Centuries'!
I originally fell in love with the sciences in College after taking a Biology and Organic Chemistry class from 2 amazing professors who were so exciting and motivational that they instilled a life long passion for the sciences in me and inspired me to double major in Biology and Chemistry!
After having been so impacted by these amazing teachers, I made it my 'life's work' to teach and explain Biology and Chemistry to my students with the same enthusiasm and motivation.
Many of my students came to me telling me that they were never good in Math or Science and they never expected this to change but after a few months of working with them many of them have gone on to EXCEL in these fields!
My passion for the sciences gives me ability to help students understand their class not only by explaining and teaching but also by sharing my 'Silly Ways To Remember' the most difficult concepts that I have been using and improving over the past 20 years.

About Me

Well, what can I say except I LOVE MATH and I would love to help you love it TOO! Math does not have to be difficult. As I always say, no student is bad at math its just that maybe you have had bad experiences. The famous Einstein was said to be bad at math by all of his teachers and he turned out to be the most influential Mathematician in history. Maybe you did not work well with your teacher in the past or your teacher bored you during class when you were younger and gave up on it. I am here to change that! I provide all my students the skills they need to succeed by creating a unique approach to teaching. I incorporate comedy into my lessons in order to help the student remember certain rules or phrases needed to solve questions. My students are all given individual unique lesson plans tailored to their needs. Having over 10 years of experience in teaching and tutoring has allowed me to be able to identify students weaknesses and target that weakness and make them their strengths. I not only work with students on their Math skills but I also work with them on their test taking skills. Have you ever taken a test and thought you knew all the material but then you didnt do nearly as well as you thought you would? Well, thats where I come in. I target what youre doing wrong while youre studying in order to help you become a better test taker. The student could possibly have test anxiety or just simply not know how to study. Think about it, teachers dont actually teach you how to study. Luckily, I do all of that while helping you excel in your Math class. I have helped students go from a 50 average to a 95 in a matter of a few consistent sessions with me. I would be so grateful to be given the opportunity to show you how wonderful math can be while significantly increasing your scores.

About Me

I have worked with teens in various capacities since the beginning of college. This has included time as a coach, a mentor for a leadership program, a camp counselor, and a tutor! I have gone to numerous tutors for assistance during my educational career, so I know what makes a tutor great! Many people have told me that I have a calming personality. So if you are stressed, I might be a great fit!
Chemistry was hands down my favorite class in high school. In that class, I remember Mr. Wolf teaching us all about the polarity of water and how (liquid) water is somehow MORE dense than (solid) ice, which would eliminate life as we know it if it were not true! I am also the proud owner of a 'periodic table' COVID face mask! :D My brain pretty much operates in numbers, so I have always enjoyed math. But I explain new concepts in a slow, step by step manner to make sure my students understand my point before moving on, which is a great benefit of having a tutor! Additionally, I wrote countless essays and papers while studying Philosophy and Catholic Studies (an interdisciplinary degree), and I really enjoy helping students with the structure and/or editing process of paper writing.

About Me

I specialize in tutoring AP Biology, Regular Biology, and Math students in the Hinsdale, IL area. I have been tutoring ever since I was in college. During this time, I helped students succeed as a lab TA and also helped other students succeed in classes such as biochemistry. I love learning and helping empowering others understand complex material by breaking it down and making it simpler.
After college, I worked at a national tutoring franchise chain. Initially, I was a tutor, but I was eventually promoting to director status and helped train other teachers to be more effective in helping students succeed. After doing this for a couple of years, I worked in a martial arts school and helped students there succeed in learning physical techniques.
I've worked with students full time in the tutoring field after departing from the position in martial arts for close over 7 years. I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve your goals with my specialty in AP Biology and Regular Biology in the Hinsdale, IL area.

About Me

I've been a technical leader in mobile phone design and now medical devices for about 30 years. Problem solving is what I am best at. Moreover, I have great empathy. I will build your confidence by setting you up to incrementally build competence and having successes continuously - little ones at first, but constantly building towards complete fluency.
I am infinitely patient, if you want to try another problem, I'll always stay with you until it's done. And I know how to play the game, I will provide you with practical organization and structured approaches to get the grade you will have earned by earnestly working with me.
Anecdote: As a sophomore at Notre Dame, I tutored Calculus for the Math Dept. In September, I started with 5-6 students, who failed their first exam. They all passed the course and by the final, my tutoring sessions were standing room only - they were sitting on window sills and radiators !!! Word gets around.

About Me

I love to teach! I firmly believe that all students can learn and can also enjoy learning. I know that developing self confidence and self esteem are key to understanding new ideas and concepts. More importantly, when students believe in themselves, they are more relaxed and open which allows them to learn more easily. No student should feel afraid or stressed. I teach students how to study, how to take effective notes, how to review and to use many learning 'tricks' that will empower them. When I teach, I always emphasize the transferability of new techniques and approaches to my students' other classes. Learning is cross curricular and lasts forever!



I began to learn French when I was in third grade, and I dreamed of living in France. I learned early on that language and culture are inseparable. Thus my beginnings as a lover of languages and cultures were launched. I lived in France for three years where I taught English and American Social Studies to French high schoolers and university students. I then realized that Spanish was becoming more prevalent here in the USA, and hence I spent three summers studying and traveling in Mexico and Spain. I have trained World Language teachers here in the USA, in Canada, in France and in Ivory Coast. I have created dynamic curriculum for students of all levels. As a national and regional consultant, I have presented workshops in English, Spanish and French here and abroad. I have organized and led student trips to France, Quebec, Ivory Coast and Japan. I love to share my energy, enthusiasm and cultural openness with my students. Creating a desire to learn and an ever-growing feeling of self-worth for my students is essential!

I have also been the Director of Public and Cultural Affairs for the Government of Quebec for the Midwest (twelve states, Quebec and Ottawa) where I was responsible for dossiers on education, the environment, politics, media and the arts. I love to share these experiences with my students so that they, too, can 'dream big' as they think about their own career choices. I currently teach ESL to adult immigrants and teach French and Spanish to adults privately.

Our students can understand other languages and cultures to make their ever-shrinking world a healthier, more open, kinder place to live.
