I have been teaching math for 6 years. Every student presented to me has different needs. As we go through some of the student's work, I notice what he/she needs to work on, and then we put emphasis on that. My goal is to help my students understand thoroughly the material in order build a strong foundation for further expansion on the subject.

About Hissael

I have been teaching and tutoring students for 6 years now. I teach math and guitar. The thing I love most about my teaching isn't the end result of a student's passing report card or a student's accomplishment of learning a difficult musical piece. It is the effort that takes place between the student and the tasks, along with guidance. The student's ability to think and approach the tasks, whether it is music, math, or English in a way that fully immerses the student's creativity and understanding is at the foundation of my teaching. I can help your child pass his/her tests, I can help them read music and play their favorite songs, but, I encourage them to overcome the challenges that they face when they are on their own in the classroom and practice room. This is the curriculum I teach.

Highly recommended.

Math has always been my favorite subject. I admire its necessity found everywhere in nature. I've been teaching for about two years now. I focus on the ability to read and write math as a language. This is what bridges the gap between memorizing math and understanding math. Being a student myself I've noticed a lot of teachers fail to take this approach in the classrooms, leaving math to become a boring and tamed subject with nothing more than a bunch of seemingly random steps. However, this couldn't be further from the truth! My lessons will boost your understanding of math in a way that makes you excited to keep learning more!

About Corey

Hi my name is Corey, I'm currently a full-time student in the Bay Area. I'm pursuing a degree in Computer Science and I'm a huge nerd when it comes to math and other subjects of science. I have a strong passion for helping other students just like myself excel in their academic goals!

I began tutoring once I got back in school. At first, it started off as a little side gig I didn't I think much of; for me, it was a fun act of kindness that also gave me a chance to better understand material I already knew. It was after I got positive feedback from students when I realized tutoring is something I really enjoy and started taking far more seriously.

As a tutor the most effective approach I found is to first make sure my students have a firm grasp on the first principles involved and expand from there by taking a deeper dive into the

abstract of the concept at hand. I always teach in general notation along with a visual basis as this greatly helps my students better understand the concepts they're learning. From here I transition into individual and situational cases giving my student a chance to show me how well they are understanding the lesson.

The goal I set for myself as a tutor is to be sure that my students understand every topic covered on the same level that I understand it myself. So far in my approach this has shown to be the best method in achieving this goal. Most of the students I've worked with were on the verge of failing their classes and in fact these are the student I like to focus on because it gives me the opportunity to show that my approach to learning works, with everyone of my students finishing out their semester nothing short of a B.

If you're interested in taking one of my lessons and think my approach to learning is something that will work for you, please contact me and let's get that A this semester!

Corey has been the best tutor I've learned from! I started taking lessons with him about half way through a semester that I was taking trig. At this time I had a D in the class and was completely lost during lectures, just after two lessons with him my understanding in trig sky rocketed, I was able to move my grade from a D to a B! There's no way I could've done this without his help!

Private Math Teacher

I have mentored over 50 students in 20+ different subjects. I have experience with grades 4th to 12th, undergraduates, graduate students, and industry professionals.

I guarantee improvement in your understanding of the material starting from our first lesson together. I am committed to my students' success!

About Gerardo

My name is Gerardo M. I studied Mechanical Engineering at the California Institute of Technology. I am a STEM-focused tutor that specializes in teaching all levels of math (AP included), science, academic test prep, and college level classes. One of my greatest strengths as a tutor is my ability to communicate with my students. I identify areas that need improvement and figure out where the fundamental disconnect between the material and my student's understanding of it exists. In addition to tutoring, I have 7 years of experience in technology startups in the semiconductors and consumer electronics industries.

My philosophy is to teach my students to learn by intuition and logic rather than memorization. I emphasize teaching the fundamentals to build up a strong foundation of understanding. I believe this approach produces superior l

ong-term learning and enables my students to continue succeeding later in life.

Gerardo definitely knows a lot about Microsoft Excel. He taught me how to use pivot tables, create histograms, produce graphs of data, and he also helped me learn a few keyboard short-cuts to do my work more efficiently. Gerardo is a patient and effective tutor and I highly recommend him!

Gerardo helped me out in Calculus because I was truly struggling. I had a tough professor and I had not taken a math course in a couple of years. He did a great job at tutoring me through webcam and he was really patient with me. I would definitely recommend!

Gerardo helped me prepare for my AP Calculus AB test. I had trouble understanding certain concepts such as related rates and using integration to find volumes. He explained problems very clearly by going step-by-step, and making sure I understood the process every step of the way. I highly recommend Gerardo if you are looking for a math tutor.

Private Math Teacher

I love math, I love physics, I love teaching. Working with numbers to get exact answers makes me feel accomplished as much as when I see my students experiences that "Eureka!" moment with my help. My private tutoring started when I was Junior in high school many many years ago, and helped many students, ranging from elementary to high school, refining their problem-solving skills. Remember, math isn't just + - x /!

About Ji

I liked solving math problems ever since I was little, which ended up all the way to graduating from UCLA with a B.S. in Astrophysics. I started tutoring Math, Chemistry, and Physics ever since when I was a junior in high school, and I practically paid my college tuition through tutoring math and science to as young as 3rd grade to someone in college. If you just want a couple of problems solved/explained, or want to learn the entire lesson and logic behind them. I will be happy to lend you a helping hand.

Private Math Teacher

I believe in facilitating the learning process by understanding each unique student and providing tools for self discovery and mastery. I also cater each educational experience to their interests, culture and individual circumstances.

I hold my bachelor's degree in Mathematics and Master's degree in Mathematics Education. I have also been teaching Math to Middle and High School students for 13 years.

About Courtney

Just a brief background, I started my career at Coca-Cola bottling company in 2003 as an Information Systems Analyst. I quickly discovered a lack of fulfillment in the dynamics of a corporate environment and was extremely fortunate to uncover my deeply rewarding passion for teaching. To this extent, I completed my bachelor’s degree in Mathematics (2003) and my master’s degree in Mathematics Education (2008) at The University of North Carolina Charlotte while I was teaching at Alexander Graham Middle School.

As a middle and, subsequently a high school teacher, I gained the classroom experience from a wide spectrum of ethnic, cultural, religious and other demographic backgrounds from families considered to be across the extreme range of socioeconomic statuses. . My experience also includes work with a variety of cognitive and physical di

sabilities. Among these opportunities came extensive work as an advanced placement instructor where I had the privilege of learning to teach a wide spectrum of learner types.

I feel that it is imperative to understand the unique makeup of a student and the circumstances that surround them outside of the classroom to meet their respective needs inside a classroom. I learned to facilitate an enriching, open and safe environment where differences are respected and celebrated in order to create an educational setting that enhanced my students’ abilities to learn without judging each other and/or themselves.

Through a number of evidence-based educational strategies, including discovery, cooperative, and differentiated learning, I have had the privilege of witnessing my students exceed expected growth across all subsets for over ten years of my teaching career. In fact, I have been recognized with some of the highest performance growth scores in the Forsyth County School system in each year that I taught.

After lowering my teaching load to spend more time rearing my now, 4-year old daughter and after successfully transitioning our lives from North Carolina (November, 2018), I am now enthusiastically seeking the opportunity to reach a bit further and extend my research- based teaching philosophy to a smaller, more individualized group of learners.

Private Math Teacher

I'm an experienced math teacher of 5 years and I love helping others to discover the excitement and beauty of math! I believe that everyone has the ability to do math, and I work to tailor my lessons to each student's unique way of thinking. Most of my teaching experience has been with students who do not naturally gravitate towards mathematical thinking. I enjoy finding ways to translate math concepts into various forms so that students can understand them more easily. Sometimes that means drawing a picture or using a metaphor - I keep exploring with my students until we have found the solution together. My goal is to give my students confidence and tools to be able to master math on their own.

About Clare

I have a background in both math and teaching, with a bachelors degree in mechanical engineering and masters degree in education. I've worked in education, data analysis, and teaching, but I most enjoy working one-on-one with students through tutoring. I work to help students realize how much they already know and give them confidence for mastering new math skills.

(Genesis C.) Clare is a phenomenal geometry tutor!!! She explains the material well and therefore, helps me understand the material in a more methodical way. She is kind and she is also patient, while I am working through the problems. I feel as if I enjoy geometry more and more after the tutoring sessions that I have with her!!

"I'd like to write a quick testimonial about the tutor I found here on Takelessons. Joshua has worked with my 1st grade brother for about 8 weeks and he ha
s made impressive progress in both his reading and math skills. He has also helped discover my brothers learning condition, dyslexia, but it seems like Joshua has had no problem with that. My brother has enjoyed working with him and is demonstrating new learning, this delights me. Joshua has also developed a fun relationship with my other brothers too. I could not more strongly recommend Joshua to tutor any student."

"Julia is a highly knowledgeable, professional and personable teacher. My son has been tutored by her since the age of 4 and is now 13. His MAP and PARCC
scores are off the charts and he just received his placements for Stevenson High School with the recommendations for the highest math classes offered to incoming freshmen. Julia taught him to love and be passionate about mathematics. Her primary goal is to make sure that the students learn in a stress-free environment and with that strategy she is able to accomplish brilliant results. I recommend Julia highly. She is very approachable and patient, loves children and loves what she does."

Alex was everything I needed in a tutor."
