    My daughter has always struggled with math. The tutors with Flatirons made a big difference. She ended up with an A in geometry! They made the process very easy by coming to our home and determining the day and time as she needed help.

    Mr. Chacon has been a very influential teacher in my life. I initially had him in 9th grade for algebra I and then in 11th grade for physics II. Throughout high school, he tutored me in math, science and SAT prep. By the time it came time to write my senior thesis, I approached Mr. Chacon to ask if hed be my advisor. Fortunately, he agreed to work with me. My senior thesis ended up being selected as one of the top three. I am extremely grateful for all the support Mr. Chacon has provided me throughout high school.

    Flatirons tutoring was super helpful, I learned a lot more than just what the classes taught me and I would definitely recommend to anyone in need of some extra help. On top of that my tutors have been very knowledgeable and professional at what they do

    Cris started tutoring in 2013 for North Central College, where he was a student and football player. He tutored Physics and Math to his peers, ranging from Calculus to Differential Equations and Newtonian Mechanics to Quantum Theory. He eventually branched out to tutor to students in the local area, focusing on STEM, general homework help, studying for assessments, and working on life-skills.

    We have worked with a wide range of students in a wide range of topics, ranging from 3rd Grade Math all the way up to College Level Physics. We have also tutored students with ADHD and similar attention deficits, ensuring to differentiate instruction to keep students engaged through Socratic questioning, kinesthetic learning, and more. We have also worked with highly successful students and valedictorians seeking to maximize their SAT score to earn merit based scholarships and gain entry into prestigious universities such as Duke and Brown.

    We recently helped a student prepare for the SAT, helping her maximize her score to earn entry into her dream college and also earn scholarship money. We used the College Board practice tests and targeted instruction to help identify areas to improve, teach techniques to properly manage time, simulate taking the test, and develop strategies for each section and question type. This took about two months of work over the summer, around 10 sessions total where we met once a week. Her scores jumped by over 120 points!

    Work with someone dedicated to helping you meet your specific needs and goals in an efficient way, while also developing student autonomy. The best teachers and tutors don’t let students rely on them, but instead teach them how to think, solve problems, study well, and how to learn best.

    Have you had experience teaching someone similar to my student? How will you build trust and rapport with my student? How can I ensure you are reliable and can meet my needs?
