About Clifford
'Dr. Cliff,' a part-time college/university professor, teacher and tutor with 5 master's and 3 doctoral degrees in a variety of topics: Mathematics, Computer Information Systems, Computer Science, Management Information Systems, MBA, Leadership, Education and Administration. He has always used proven educational techniques to instruct undergraduate students, graduate students and school children/teenagers (K-12). In addition, Dr. Cliff is a Certified Tutor by American Tutoring Association and National Tutoring Association (Math); he holds California Teaching Credentials in Math (CSET I,II,III), Business (I,II,III), and Educational Technology/Computers (I,II); he is a Sylvan Certified Teacher in Math and Arts/Language K-12.

Dr. Cliff believes that, although many professors and teachers do an admirable job in the classroom, many students
and children do not learn well in traditional institutions. Many students and children don't respond to the assembly line nature of most institutions. He believes that a student's or child's strengths and natural abilities need to be the foundation of learning. Dr. Cliff often warns against a "cookie cutter" approach to educating students, teenagers and children. You or your child is seen as an individual, and natural strengths are identified and built upon. Therefore, individual one-on-one tutoring or help is the key approach to each student who has any challenges difficulties in a given subject.

In today’s environment and economic challenges, with shorter budgets for the education, larger classes sizes and pressure of performing well in all kind of standard tests, I often see many students lacking true knowledge and skills in a given subject, since they cannot get individualized attention during the class session. That’s where a tutor comes into the picture, not only uncover major “holes” in students’ knowledge set but also teach students how to study, how to learn and through proper guidance “fill” those knowledge and skills holes.

I did not actually take any lessons with him, but his schedule did not reflect what showed as available in Takelessons. He had a very bad attitude and would not actually schedule the lesson after several exchanges.

I need to improve my spoken German for business and Marcel has been invaluable in helping me improve at a good pace while being incredibly flexible on lesson planning.

I've been working with him for about a month now and I've grown to feel more comfortable speaking with my colleagues who are native German speakers.

If you want a native, professional teacher who can be fun...Marcel is your guy.

My approach to teaching writing begins with learning where the student is currently at ability wise, then taking the time to build a custom lesson plan that will cater to strengthening current weaknesses while not being boring or generic.

About Leo
Hello! I'm Leo, and I will be your prospective tutor for today. I am a New School alum in the literary studies program, with a specialization in fiction writing. Most of my teaching experience stems from a martial arts background (specifically taekwondo, Muay Thai and Brazilian jiu jitsu) , where I taught students ranging from 4-60 years old. I also have experience teaching people how to type, how to improve their reading and writing skills, stage presence, public speaking, self defense, and physical health. I look forward to meeting all of you while helping with whatever you need help with.

Advertisers often use familiar characters and put them in unexpected scenarios. Example: AT&T® portrays Hansel and Gretel as young NYC tourists who are unaware that pigeons are gobbling up their trail of breadcrumbs. No worries. Gretel remembered to bring the GPS to get them safely home.

Your assignment: An advertising agency has hired you to write a 60-second (2 page) commercial without any dialogue. Your characters are Darth Vader and Paris Hilton. The product is a window cleaner.

About Christina
I've been passionate about the craft of writing for as long as I can remember. My credits to date include 32 books, 161 stage plays, 5 optioned feature films, and squillions of articles and interviews that appear online and in trade publications worldwide. I am also a script consultant for the film business (which means I stop a lot of really bad movies from coming to theaters near you) and a professional ghostwriter (which doesn't mean I talk to dead people). If there's a novel, theater script or screenplay you've been yearning to write, you need to learn as much as you can about plots, structure, character development, dialogue, pacing...and, of course, how to find an agent, publisher or producer who can help your finished product find an audience. No matter the style or genre that interests you, you'll receive personalized writing assi
gnments and in-depth critiques to make you the best wordsmith you can be.

Growing up with a writing professor as a parent has helped instill in me valuable skills to have for writing. Because of her, along with the great English teachers I have I am able to write an in class essay in 45 minutes in a breeze and write a take home essay without a struggle. Now, let me help you. Let me teach you the tricks that my mother and teachers taught me so that writing is no longer a challenge for you!

About Noah
Hi there! In the past, I have acted as a tutor/teacher in all sorts of situations. Whether it be tutoring students that needed help at my high school to helping out my friends on their homework or even teaching my own Sunday School class in high school. I don't just tutor to make money, I tutor because I love the things I am teaching and I love to see the breakthrough in a student when they understand the thing they are studying. I have plenty of experience tutoring students and am 100% confident that I will be able to help my students improve their grades and more importantly, learn something new!

Long Beach, CA

View Full Profile

I have 17+ years and 2 Masters Degrees teaching K-6th grade. I have extensive training in writing development and support to struggling writers. A student can often create a fantastic answer to an writing prompt, but hey often lack the skill necessary to transfer that information into writing. I focus on analyzing prompts, planning, drafting and revising, editing and publishing a piece.
Writing is necessary for all content areas and I will teach them to write across the curriculum.
I also hope to create a love for writing instead of making it a chore. My curriculum will be tailored to your child and will attempt to to find topics that they are interested in at their level. These sessions may also include some reading skill development as any of the current writing requires the ability to analyze text and cite resources.

About Kate
I am a professional teacher. I see myself as your coach as you will be doing the work of learning and I'm just here to support you in achieving your goals. I have a love for learning and am an avid reader of children's literature. I believe in being relevant to current events and cultural sensitivity. I have a child with special needs, so I understand a parent’s perspective of their own child’s unique navigation of the school system. I create a positive learning environment that is dedicated to your child and their interests.
