Iheoma's Bio

Iheoma received her BA in psychology from Northwestern University. Enthusiastic and filled with energy, she is always looking for new ways to achieve personal growth. Iheoma loves meeting new people and surrounding herself with individuals from diverse cultures and perspectives.

Right after graduation, Iheoma went into marketing and sales. After a brief stint at an online startup, she decided to return to the education sector at a tutoring company. Now, she is looking forward to returning to school to work toward a master's degree in nursing.

Iheoma's passion for tutoring started early on in high school when she began working with elementary school students on techniques for times tables memorization. From there, she began working with peers as an after-school tutor, focusing primarily on math and science. "My favorite part about tutoring has been having a front-row seat to watch a student's growth. It's an amazing feeling to be able to look back and acknowledge all of the hard work and effort a student put in to reach their academic goals."

Over the course of eight years, Iheoma has tutored students from K-12. Her subject area experience includes math (elementary, pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and pre-calculus), science (biology and chemistry), English (reading comprehension, essay writing, grammar, and phonics), and history (world and American). As a test prep tutor for the SAT/ACT, she has specialized in working with students on math, writing, and language.

Iheoma describes her teaching/tutoring style as "both patient and highly motivational. The stress that comes with preparing for the SAT/ACT can be daunting and overwhelming at times for students, but finding ways to highlight their growth and achievement has been a tool I have consistently utilized when teaching. I believe in celebrating academic victories, both big and small, and am driven by the immense potential I see within my students." Iheoma emphasizes that, while learning and understanding content is important, it is equally important to assess and build a student's confidence in the material. "If students truly believe within themselves that they can tackle any reading passage, word problem, or essay prompt that will be thrown at them, I know that they will continue to see improvement in their test scores."

As a student herself, Iheoma served as Vice President of the Associated Student Body and Commissioner of Rallies, played volleyball, and participated as an educator through the Peer Health Exchange. She was also a Northwestern University tour guide. In college, she studied abroad in South Africa, where she had the opportunity to ride an elephant, go shark cage diving, and drive through Kruger National Park on a ten-day safari.

In her down time, she enjoys reading books by authors including George Orwell, Aldous Huxley, and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. She also loves being in the kitchen and trying out new recipes. Fun fact: "I actively collect cookbooks and am currently working on perfecting my macaroni and cheese recipe."
