Renjie Abraham

Quick Facts

I'm Renjie Abraham, a licensed teacher with 10 years of classroom experience.

I specialize in test prep (ACT/SAT/GRE/GMAT) and academic tutoring.

I meet with students online or in person within a 20-minute drive of Gurnee, Illinois.



I've taught in almost every environment:

  • 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

I've tutored:

  • 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 actually in the works, so let me know if you're more comfortable with that approach.



Every student learns differently. Too many teachers treat students like identical parts in a factory. I founded Telos Tutors in 2016 to leave behind factory-style schooling and offer help that's personable and personalized. What matters more to me than any organization's agenda for your life is your own authentic pursuit of meaning and fulfillment.

My telos–an ultimate object or aimorients 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.



I'm happily married and the proud parent of two homeschooled kids. I enjoy reading, running, singing, educational technology, and modernist cooking.
