I'm Ren, a licensed teacher with 10 years of classroom experience.
I meet with students online or in person in the North Shore area of Illinois.
I've taught in lots of settings:
- US and overseas (Rwanda)
- North (Illinois) and South (Alabama)
- urban and suburban
- public and private
- secular and religious
- Math, Physics, and Social Studies
- middle and high school
- individuals and groups
- in schools, tutoring centers, homes, libraries, and cafés
- in person and online
My favorite setting is working 1-on-1, but some group classes are in the works, so let me know if you're more comfortable with that approach.
Every student can learn but learns differently. I founded Telos Tutors in 2016 to leave behind one-size-fits-all schooling and offer help that's personable and personalized.
My telos–helping people grow–orients me towards a life of lasting significance and satisfaction. I encourage you to find your telos* and run after it, and I would be honored to help you with that pursuit.
*an ultimate object or aim
I'm happily married and the proud parent of two homeschooled kids. I enjoy reading, running, singing, educational technology, and modernist cooking.
