Our science teachers can cover a wide variety of science topics. We are more than just "tutors"; we are competent, former ISBE-certificated teachers, and we have been reviewed and referred by other students, parents and school personnel. Our abilities and knowledge are therefore verifiable and we are extremely capable of helping you in the areas where you are having difficulties. We will work one-to-one, ensuring that each child achieves his or her academic goals. Science need no longer be the scary and difficult chore it often is claimed to be!
Richard C. Ross
I attained a B.A. from DePauw University (Greencastle, IN) in 1972 and a Masters from the same school in 1974. Twenty-four of my twenty-five years in education were spent teaching at Kaneland High School in Maple Park, Illinois. There I taught Physics I and Physics II (a course which I designed and wrote the curriculum), Algebra, Geometry, Earth Science, Physical Science, a General Science survey course and a computer-based Technology lab class. After school, I coached football for three years and then golf for nineteen. I also have a successful small business designing websites and Internet advertising.
I attained an Associate in Science with Honors from College of DuPage in 1987. I then transferred to the University of Illinois at Chicago and completed my Bachelor of Science in the Teaching of Biological Sciences in 1991. I taught Biology, Physical Science, Anatomy & Physiology at Driscoll Catholic High School in Addison, IL and Kaneland High School in Maple Park, IL. While teaching, I was the Student Council Sponsor at both schools; I was also attending graduate courses at Northern Illinois University and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in pursuit of my Masters in Biology.
