Henry is helpful, encouraging and also challenging. He is aware of our abilities. At the beginning we found the course book difficult, but as we continued we grew to enjoy it.

Hello,

With over 8 years experience in tutoring, I have learned what methods work and those that don’t. I’m upbeat, patient, easy going, empathetic, and generally well-liked by others. I’m very good at adapting to different learning styles and have a knack for eliciting the best out of my students through motivation and positive reinforcement.

Throughout university, and after, I mentored many students with great results. In addition to academics I helped them get the most out of their college experience. Everyone I helped benefited greatly, and one runs a very successful consulting business.

Aside from math and English, I’m a very proficient test and note taker. I speak conversational Spanish, and basic Japanese.

About Mitch

Whether you're completely lost, just need a little help, or need some test/note taking tips I can be very helpful. My patient, easy going, and positive mindset is very conducive to creating a great learning atmosphere. I can also be very useful to those that aren't motivated, I have a knack for fin

Donna is an amazing teacher and has a vast knowledge of SEO. During our lesson she cleared up everything I had wanted to ask.

Donna is truly one of a kind person! I am so lucky to trust my instincts about Donna. She is absolutely an amazing person! I like to become a permanent student as I have been interested in many subjects Donna masters. Also, I must say that Donna is a gentle tutor and being. She is a true precious gem.
Dan
Wow! This lady was oozing knowledge galore! Not only she knows what she claims, but she quickly sees other marketing aspects of the cyberworld and shortcomings of the website! She is extremely talented lady who cares about what she does. She is worldly and helpful with invaluable suggestions to improve SEO qualities of the site!

Initially, I have committed to only one session. I have purchased 3 more sessions. Donna ROCKS!!!

Are you a college student honing an entrance essay? Are you a professional trying to land your dream job with the perfect cover letter, or a budding author looking for feedback?

I'm a freelance political journalist by day, but by night (and a few business hours) I'm here on TakeLessons helping writers find their voice. We'll talk about whatever you're working on and make it better — from help with the basics like grammar and style to deeper feedback that helps you convey your big ideas. Every writer has something important to say, and I'm here to help you find the words.

I've written about members of Congress, environmental disasters and big-money elections for outlets like VICE and The Daily Beast and newspapers in multiple states. I'm excited to write with you!

About Sam

I'm a freelance political reporter with bylines in VICE, the Daily Beast and newspapers in Michigan and North Dakota. I've written long feature stories on politicians, dispatches on the latest in Congress and written essays and fiction to boot. When I work with students young and old, my bigges

"I used to have terrible handwriting. Chicken scratch, if you will. I didn't think it was possible but after 2 months of continuous practice and finding a comfortable grip, I managed to write my best ever. I remember being rejected for a job because the essay portion underperformed the rest of the application. Kima is no joke! Unlike real teachers she doesn't want you to copy her handwriting exactly to prove proficiency. She helped me find my style and keep it neat. Glad I asked for help when it truly mattered."

5 Strategies for Developing Writing Skills

Unlike some other academic skills, the ability to write well is something that follows you from elementary school all throughout your life, particularly if you work in an office environment - so it's no wonder there's such an emphasis on it in school! From creative short stories and descriptive paragraphs in elementary school to lengthier prose and argumentative essays in high school, and then implementing those skills to write research and term papers in college, students spend a great deal …
