About Donna
CA Standard Credential from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. I have been tutoring and teaching students for many years. My goal is to reduce anxiety in learning a subject and to give students the tools and knowledge they need to study on their own.

Most of my students are tutored in math. Usually my students suffer from math anxiety. They believe that they are bad in math. I help them to use previous knowledge to build on the current material. By the end of the sessions, they feel good about themselves and their math abilities.

I also have a Certificate in College Counseling from UCLA. I help students prepare for college/career from grade 9 through grade 12. I help with standardized tests, entrance tests, college applications and federal funding.

*** Specialties ***
I teach all levels of math - from elementary to College Algebra.
My pri
mary focus is:
Algebra 1 and 2
Geometry
I've taught Pre-Calculus, Trigonometry and Statistics.

*** Lesson Details ***
These details change depending on, whether you would like musical training or academic tutoring.
Musical:

Music is fun and the lessons should be as well. When it comes to practice I recommend that students do spend time (1/2-1hour daily) outside of the lessons practicing to ensure that they see results. If you choose to practice only while in the lesson you will get better but it will be at a slower pace.

- Start with quick warm ups (these work to increase students fluidity with their instrument)
- Work technique
- Assign repertoire depending on skill level.
- Work on assigned repertoire
- Work on technical aspect of the pieces.
Your student will learn much more about their capabilities and their instrument as they will learn many aspects of Music Theory.

I teach beginning- advanced piano lessons touching on posture, hand position, rhythm training, sight-reading, expression, and pop/jazz chord charts. If you want to learn how to play songs by ear that you hear on the radio, I can train you how to do that too! Once I feel that you have surpassed my ability to help you grow, I will be happy to pass you on to a more experienced teacher and attend all of your future recitals.

I teach voice beginner-professional, which includes classical repertoire and technique as well as Musical Theatre, Pop, Rock, Standards, Country, RnB,...you name it. The best part is that you will learn to sing in a manner that will not damage your instrument and in fact will work to fortify your instrument.

Academic:
- Start with introduction to the standard.
- Work on problems with material.
- Present new methods to reach a solution.
- Work on all assigned work.
- Work on future work to give the student an academic advantage.

I am a hard working tutor that will bring the joy of the subject to our sessions of tutoring. I am strict at times, however, some of my students have referred to me as mellow. I will strive to bring your student up to speed and surpass even their own expectations. I love my students, and I want to see them succeed.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, Recording equipment etc.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Casio Keyboard Piano, sheet music, and much more equipment as needed.

This option is for English speakers in high school or college who are working on English literature. If you're looking for classes in English as a second (or third) language, pick the ESL option rather than this one. About me, I took AP English in high school and scored quite highly. I have studied English literature for several years and enjoy discussing it with students.

About Jackie
Hi! My name is Jackie, and I have 15+ years of experience in teaching, tutoring, and training. Currently, I am enjoying managing two small businesses while teaching students part time.

All of my students, meaning a perfect 100%, have improved their grades by at least one letter grade, if not more, and passed every one of their tests and exams. I help ALL my clients reach their goals!

A couple years ago, I returned to San Diego after living in Peru for several years where I taught English as a second language. My students ranged from adult business people and academicians to primary and secondary school students. I really needed to utilize different teaching methods depending on each student’s needs. Some students wanted more business-related conversation, so I had to be able to teach business principles in marketing, communication,
logistics, interviewing, and so much more. Critical thinking was an area that I pushed my business students to improve. Other students needed to work on the basics of grammar, reading, and writing, and we had a lot of fun in class, whether going through the interactive lesson or improvising by playing fun games to emphasize thinking on their feet in another language.

The feedback I often received from my Peruvian students, as well as my students in Mexico and the U.S., was that I made learning an enjoyable experience—they wanted to work harder to advance quickly in their classes. All of my students agree that I have a lot of patience and turn even the most challenging lessons into ones of positivity and encouragement. I provide critical feedback in the most constructive of ways that help the students reach conclusions on their own. I enjoy being there to support and guide their experience!

Before I left for Peru, I worked at St Vincent de Paul Village (part of Father Joe's Villages) in downtown San Diego. There I focused on Health Education. I built the Villages' first Health Education department and helped start its innovative Health & Wellness program. As part of these two programs, I taught homeless and low-income adults with and without learning disabilities, as well as children from preschoolers to high school students. Teaching such a wide variety of students how to improve their health while living in sometimes precarious situations without much income or stability pushed me to think creatively and come up with memorable ways to engage the students and help them apply what they had learned in their daily routine.

In high school, I took all AP and college prep classes. I went to a liberal arts college in Virginia where I focused on social studies and biology. I spent a few years training business people in Microsoft Office, Photoshop, InDesign, as well as presentation techniques. In grad school, I specialized in applied anthropology and public health. During that time, I tutored students in web design. In between, I've worked in Communications and Training in international health and development, so I have a lot of experience to bring to teaching.

Basically, I love teaching. I'm enthusiastic yet patient, and I absolutely adore helping kids and adults alike learn. It's such a sense of accomplishment when my students show off their terrific grades. I see the same look in my students’ eyes regardless of age—that pride that shines from within, that exuberant smile, like they can conquer anything. I want my students to keep that pride for a long, long time.

Right now, I'm writing two textbooks to be used in my Spanish classes. I've also written several academic articles published online. I love traveling, cats, and learning!

Matías and I first met through the Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching program in 2008 and have remained in touch ever since. We have worked together and collaborated thtoughout the years in various ways. Matías is a dedicated and experienced teacher who strives to create memorable and practical lessons. He likes making students think out of the box and often brings his interests to the classroom, making for a content-based class. He is creative and tries new methodologies and ideas, as he is up-to-date on the latest language teaching trends. He is also fun and kind-hearted. I strongly recommend Matías and doubt you'll find a better language teacher.

English is an essential language to know for many reasons: English is the language of science (mathematics is the quantitative language, and English is the qualitative language), English speakers earn more money than non-English speakers, English is the most commonly used language among foreign language speakers, English is based on an alphabet making it much easier to learn, and English is the language of the film industry making it easier for English speakers to assimilate new information and to no longer rely on subtitles.

I have supported students with both the English, Reading, and Writing sections of the ACT and the Reading, Writing & Language, and Essay sections of the PSAT and SAT for more than fourteen years. I have also supported university students with both the verbal and essay (issue and argument) sections of the GRE and GMAT for more than eleven years. Examination preparation continues to be one of my most successful endeavors. I look forward to ensuring your success

About Brandon
Students and Parents,

It is a pleasure to make your acquaintance, and I am elated you have found interest in my profile! The following is an extremely detailed description of my credentials, services, and mission. Please also read the "subjects" section for more specific information. I want you to make informed decisions and to receive the best service possible. I look forward to working with you!

Credentials:

Please know that I am one of the most, if not the most, highly rated academic coaches in the United States on another well-known website. Your "wise" "aunt" may have told you about it. I am willing to provide my services at a discount, since I am new to TakeLessons. Take advantage of this opportunity! You will be glad you did!

You and your loved ones will receive support from a coach who is well-educated and exper
ienced. In addition to my degree pursuits, I have taken several supplemental courses through online venues provided by Harvard University; Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT); University of California, Berkeley; and Columbia University. I have nine consecutive years of Master Gold Certification from the American Tutoring Association verifying my background, teaching expertise, and 2700+ hours of documented coaching in addition to my hours through TakeLessons. I am also lead editor for a Chinese consulting firm, specializing in international undergraduate and graduate applications from Asian students to American and Western European colleges and universities.

You and your loved ones will benefit from engaging with only one coach instead of numerous "tutors" for disparate topics. I am qualified to coach the quantitative (mathematics and science) and verbal (reading and writing) sections of every standardized examination I support. I have scored in the 99th percentile on the ACT (35), SAT (1560), GMAT (790: Q51, V47), and GRE (339: 169V, 170Q). Manhattan Prep, Princeton Review, and Kaplan have requested my GMAT and GRE expertise on multiple occasions.

You and your loved ones will work with a coach who has developed insight and perspective, having taught both middle school, high school, undergraduate, and graduate students and career-minded professionals from numerous states and countries. I have 15+ years of coaching experience: 6+ years as a private undergraduate/graduate tutor and 9+ years as an Academic Coach.

Services:

You and your loved ones will learn in quiet, comfortable environments and will benefit from flexible scheduling. For national and international students, I provide convenient online sessions. For local students, in addition to online sessions, I provide in-person (1-2 students) and small group (3-5 students) sessions at my office/conference room in Bloomfield Hills. I am able to accommodate most days and times and am available mornings, afternoons, and evenings during holiday breaks and summer months.

You and your loved ones will be given the resources you need to achieve success. I provide official materials (GMAC, ETS, ACT, College Board, etc.), unofficial materials (Manhattan Prep, Veritas, Princeton Review, Kaplan, Aristotle Prep, Barron, McGraw Hill, etc.), textbooks, workbooks, worksheets, equation sheets, vocabulary references, etc. I also furnish detailed solutions to session and homework exercises to ensure understanding and completeness.

Mission:

I act as a teacher, manager, mentor, organizer, counselor, resource expert, educational consultant, and motivational speaker. I create short-term and long-term solutions by utilizing comprehensive, multidimensional approaches. I dedicate my professional life to the success of my clients and the satisfaction of their parents (when applicable).

I build professional relationships based on respect, trust, and cooperation, allowing me to bridge the separation between the positions in which clients find themselves and those in which they would prefer to be. I also cultivate self-esteem, confidence, patience, consistency, and problem-solving skills to improve academic performance. I always relate the importance of education to both personal and professional pursuits to create interest and passion for learning.

Above all, I help clients to relax and to realize their full potentials. They often tell me that they are thankful for my open, honest, and supportive demeanor, which allows them to more easily share their thoughts and feelings. They are also inspired to share positive feedback with their colleagues, educators, classmates, and parents. Parents often tell me that they appreciate the thorough communication I provide and admire the influence I have on their children.

Our sessions are an investment in your future; not only will you learn information and techniques necessary to excel at your studies, but you will also gain a firm educational foundation that will serve both your personal and professional lives for years to come. I create the most meaningful experiences in my life by inspiring clients to achieve success. I encourage you to form your own opinion about this opportunity by contacting me now. Let's get to work!
