Dear Parents and Students,
May I be a personal tutor for you or your child? I have been successfully tutoring for over 12 years. I have some glowing letters of recommendation, and among the highest ratings in this region. I graduated with honors, Summa Cum Laude from Case Western Reserve University, where I made the Dean's List.

Teaching and tutoring has been my calling from early in life. It started with tutoring my friends, up to when I was hired through my high school Calculus class to tutor 10th grade Geometry students.
Since then, I've taught GRE, ACT and SAT prep and I've been a classroom mathematics teacher (from 7th grade to 12th grade) for almost a decade.
I have two specialties that make me fairly unique in the domain of Mathematics and Test Prep teaching and tutoring: First, I help students to understand the topic on a much deeper and more interesting level, by connecting it to related topics and skills, providing historical background, and elaborating on how it's been used and how it's currently used. This makes the material much more interesting, and, hence, much more likely to be recalled it in the future, than when it is taught the standard way.
Secondly, I am well aware of the role test-anxiety and self-doubt plays in the lack of success of some students, so I put a lot of emphasis on the emotional and psychological component of learning and test-taking. With a bachelor's degree in Psychology, I have tools to apply that help students to overcome the debilitating affects of test anxiety, self-doubt, and fear of failure.
Beyond this, I am very personable and can connect with most any student that I teach. I love to help students to learn, and that is readily evident to my students. Some students are intimidated by teachers or tutors who don't know how to connect with the students on a personal level, or how to break things down in a way that makes sense to the student, but that's where I truly excel. Instead of simply repeating myself and wondering why a students doesn't understand a challenging concept, I work to grasp where the breakdown occurs, and then build up from what they do already understand. Through this, I have had unparalleled success throughout my teaching experience, whether it is Math specifically, or Test Prep more generally.
Working with me will not only provide you nearly immediate success, but the effects will carry over well into the future. My teaching is a lifetime investment.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you to overcome your challenges to reach your greatest potential.

Bachelor of Music, The Juilliard School - piano performance
Master of Music, Manhattan School of Music - music technology & piano performance
Bachelor of Science, CUNY - applied mathematics
Hailed a "little Mozart" by The New York Times in his early youth, David A. started early career as a classical piano celebrity. He earned his Bachelor of Music degree at the Juilliard School of Music in 2005, majoring in piano performance. There he won some important music prizes, including Contemporary Honors Recital Award and a first prize at Chopin Piano Concerto Competition, the latter giving him a debut performance of Chopin's Piano Concerto No. 1 with the Juilliard Symphony. David subsequently performed various piano concertos in Long Island areas with similar youth orchestras. In 2007, he enrolled at Manhattan School of Music, from which he graduated with a Master's degree in Piano Performance two years later. There he won the first prize at annual Eisenberg-Fried Piano Concerto Competition, which granted him a subsequent performance of Liszt's Piano Concerto No. 2 with the MSM Symphony. David has performed solo and chamber music in many important concert venues such as Merkin Hall, Juilliard Paul Hall, MSM Borden Auditorium, Tilles Center, Steinway Hall, Lincoln Center Library, Alice Tully Hall (Lincoln Center), Peter Sharp Juilliard Theater, Jordan Hall, Miller Hall, Mozarteum, and Trinity Church. His performances were critically acclaimed twice by The New York Times, and were also praised by local New York magazines. His music performances were also highly commended by the German "Die Woche" newspaper.
David has been actively teaching on a private basis throughout his musical studies. He has worked as a piano teacher at many important private music companies of NYC, and participated in numerous piano teacher workshops as well. Teaching and communicating his skills have now become his sole priority. He instills artistry and stage confidence in his music students, and not simply their ability to play or read music. Successful stage presence is a crucial part of music-making - it inspires creativity and boosts personal self-esteem.
Aside from piano, David enriched his natural talent with academics and mathematical studies. His particular interest in Mathematics and Applied Sciences gradually increased as he entered his teens. After graduating with a Master's Degree in Piano Performance, he went on to pursue studies in Applied Mathematics, and subsequently received an Undergraduate Science degree in this concentration. He has also tutored a great number of students in Standardized Test Prep and Mathematics (up to Calculus) throughout his academic years. Since completing his second undergraduate degree, he has been actively tutoring on a regular basis. The Math College Entrance Exams he covers include SAT, ISEE, ACT, GED, GRE, GMAT, and REGENTS, among other major exams containing math and quantitative sections. David's teaching method includes handling each client with careful attention and making sure to achieve their lesson satisfaction through detailed observation of strengths and weaknesses in any given field.

Piano Training: Collegiate lessons from Steven Glaser and private lessons from George Haddad
As a high school senior, under the tutelage of OSU Professor Emeritus and world-renowned pianist George Haddad, I performed the first movement of Shostakovich's Second Piano Concerto with the chamber orchestra.
I performed different self-composed pieces at seven OSU Composers' Workshops and won the Audience Favorite Award at the Johnstone Woodwinds Composition Competition in 2012. My Senior Composition Recital was performed on October 25, 2012. It showcased several of my three-movement works: string quartet, clarinet solo, set of classical songs for piano and voice, set of pop songs for piano and voice. Interspersed with these were two solo piano pieces and a duet for piano and violin.
My background makes me a knowledgeable and effective tutor. I was valedictorian at Delaware Hayes High School in 2009 and received OSU's Maximus Scholarship based on my ACT and SAT scores.
As more and more people pursue advanced degrees, a bachelorâs degree from a four-year college may only be worth what a high school diploma was in the past. Many jobs now require an advanced degree and, regardless of the path you choose, youâll still need to take the GMAT to get into a good graduate school.
The GMAT. or Graduate Management Admission Test, contains an Analytical Writing Section, a Quantitative Section, and a Verbal Section, and if you're not familiar with the exam's structure, you can find yourself easily challenged and often frustrated. While you can attempt to take the exam without GMAT prep tutoring by employing books, pre-tests and educational materials you find online, you may still find yourself struggling to master the skills necessary to tackle the
test. This is where the benefits of a TakeLessons tutor come in.
"Steven is very professional and extremely helpful. He always has a smile on and is serious about helping you phrase the music. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
"It's been really exciting so far! Jordan has been so helpful, so knowledgeable. I could not have found a better instructor and I'm getting better and better every day."
"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
