I sincerely love working with children. Helping a young person is like leaving a legacy for future generations. Getting paid for it is just a bonus because if I were rich I'd do it for free. I have so much love for life and the many many ways to enjoy it and be successful. I simply wish to pass this on to the next generation.
"I am currently in my final year at Depaul University, studying Health Sciences, with a concentration in public health. My goal after graduation is to take my skills and help as many people as possible. I have always loved working with children and have 7 years of experience working with children in school, camp, and home settings, with children’s ages ranging from newborns to teenagers. I am really excited for the opportunity to help out as a nanny!"

He is confident that every student can be successful as long as they put their mind to it.
I recently graduated from Loyola University with two degrees in History and Secondary Education. At Loyola University, I took rigorous courses in education and history, and gained considerable teaching experience from interning at middle schools and high schools in Chicago and Evanston. During the Fall semester, I student taught a diverse range of students at CICS Northtown High School. Since that time, I have become ever more passionate about education and the road to success. I have much experience tutoring. I pride myself in believing that every child and student, no matter his or her background, has strengths, unique abilities, and talents. Thus, it is my goal as a tutor and an educator to help students draw out and apply their strengths while assisting them in areas which are in need of improvement so that they can use their divergent and critical thinking to solve problems, become inspired, and have a strong sense of self-belief.
