Political Science student offering ACT prep lessons in Chicago for high schoolers

Methodology

My teaching methodology works by starting with the fundamentals of the subject, and connecting it with related future material. I emphasize memorization of key fundamental principles, formulas, concepts, vocabulary words, and grammar rules in order to learn new material easier.

Background

I am a student at the University of Illinois in Chicago working towards earning a BA in political science with a minor in economics. I have a 3.76GPA. I tutored students in math, economics, and ACT Prep for a year.

Ricky's resume

Profile Summary
Proactive tutor. I have 1 year of tutoring experience with Math courses, economics, and accounting classes. However, I have a wide-range of subjects that I can tutor in. I also tutored for a few family’s high schoolers for their ACT exam, focusing primarily on the English and math portion, as well as time management on the reading portion and paying attention to detail on the science section.

Career Objective
As a political science major, my aspirations include working as a policy advisor or within an administrative campaign. I’ve always been intrigued by the legal field and hope to potentially work towards attending law school. Defending those on behalf of civil rights and the preservation of the environment are my primary interests.
