* FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS *

Sessions are typically 1-2 hours, once or twice weekly, for homework, test review, or practice questions in test prep books. But it's up to you!

Bring all relevant materials (e.g., textbook / test prep book, paper/notebook, pencils NOT pens, calculator) to our first session. I don't provide materials, although I can give suggestions.

Sessions typically happen at or near these libraries (hours+address available online):

- Lincoln-Belmont (Lakeview)

- Sulzer (Lincoln Square)

- Logan Square

- Bucktown-Wicker Park

Other common settings:

- Your home, or a coffee shop. (Provide address or nearest intersection so I can evaluate transit options.)

- Zoom + online whiteboard.

* MY APPROACH *

Focused but encouraging, enthusiastic but personable, I've patiently helped students reach that "light-bulb moment" countless times. I've got your back! Content knowledge is only part of the puzzle, though; problem-solving skills are crucial, so I share tactics on being methodical and help in constructing a system. Check my testimonials to hear from my students!
