After speaking to multiple tutoring companies, we discovered Matthew. Matthew was very professional and made my son feel comfortable. They had a total of 5 tutoring sessions covering Math, English, Science and Reading. My son took the ACT after his tutoring sessions and scored a 23. We were very pleased with the progress our son made by going from an ACT score of 19 to 23 after only 5 sessions with Matthew. I would highly recommend Matthew J. Horwich to anyone needing tutoring.

Matthew explained his approach to coaching and the plan so we were able to make an educated choice on the best tutor for our son. Matthew was responsive, organized and worked very well with our son. He communicated directly with our son and cc:ed me so that I was aware of the plan and f/u. His scores did improve on the SAT and we were pleased with the investment.

Matt has been awesome for my student. His math skills have improved greatly, and his writing has come from illegible to what can now be described as neat and readable. Matt has been very patient and deliberate with our son and has taken the time to really explain things to Jake in a way he can understand. We would recommend this tutor to any parent looking for a tutor for their grammar school student! Matt is also reliable and prompt and showed up when expected which was helpful with our very busy schedules.

My name is Mena. I have a strong background in math with a degree in Actuarial science and have been tutoring the Algebra 1&2, and Geometry for over four years. I have extensive knowledge of the testing strategies needed to make the exam fun and easy. I work with students to find areas that need strengthening then work patiently with them to hone their skills. Successful test preparation is largely about demystifying the test through time spent learning the correct approach which I have years of experience doing, with that confidence students can achieve any score they set their minds to.
I have been tutoring Common Core Math, Algebra I & II, Geometry, SAT, ACT, and Grade school math since 2012; there is nothing I enjoy more than watching my students succeed.
I create a relaxed environment for my students in order to make the work stress free and enjoyable. My goal is to make the coursework fun for the student by finding an approach to learning that works best based on their unique characteristics. Being able to empathize with students in order to understand where their challenges lie and patient in helping them overcome those hurdles is where I excel. By exploring different approaches to difficult concepts I break them into manageable pieces that fit with each students prior experience which make learning approachable rather than overwhelming. Behind every concept we have yet to master there is a myth in our mind about
what it entails. Demystifying through creativity and humor allows my students to overcome a combination of fear, frustration and/or complacency that we all experience at some point while learning.
I have tutored dozens of students in the SAT and ACT and have helped them all increase their scores with most increasing their SAT score at least 100 points and some by over 400 points and on the ACT most by over 8 points and some by over 15 points. These are very difficult tests designed to be difficult to improve on. All of my students who gave themselves plenty of time to prepare and followed through on their promise to work on their own have seen significant score improvements.I have also worked with numerous students on developing study skills; helping them find the fun in school as well as helping with their organization skills and approach to homework.
We like Mena’s Style of teaching. He has a way to get my 16-yr-old son to study and do extra math work daily. He goes through the lessons to prep my son for the school work and also get him to do the SAT prep. He has a lot of knowledge and tricks on the SAT that are very helpful. We do a weekly class with Mena is the past 6 months and will continue through high school.

He helped me a lot and patiently made sure I understood everything. The best math teacher you will ever have.
November 1, 2018
Mena was wonderful! He really pushed my brother to work hard. He provided really helpful and informative packets that my brother is continuing to use. Thanks to Mena, my brother feels a lot more confident in Math and has a lot of great tools, strategies and resources.
I am a math tutor at Brookdale Community College. I tutor students in a variety of college math courses, going from basic algebra up to Calculus 3. With a good foundation, any topic is manageable. Homework is key and my students have to complete it before our lesson. The key to succeeding in math is to be extremely organized and have a notebook which contains class notes, homework and extra practice problems. I encourage my students to re-write the class notes after they come home from school. This way the students actually understand what happened. Before any of my lessons I ask the student to send me an outline of the topics they would like to go over and I prepare accordingly. This way my time and their time is used efficiently.
Hi! My name is Michelle and I math tutor and piano teacher. I also help Russian natives learn English. I am a math tutor at Brookdale Community College. At Brookdale I tutor students in a variety of college math courses, going from basic algebra up to Calculus 3. As for my piano lessons, my piano students are expected to improve on a weekly basis. In my lessons, besides playing compositions, students will also be taught piano theory and technique. I have mentored students of all ages and can customize a lesson accordingly. I have experience with performing and composing music. I am also fluent in Russian and specialize in teaching English to Russian natives. I prepare Russian speakers for the U.S. Citizenship test. Before any of my lessons I ask the student to send me an outline of the topics they would like to go over and I prepare acco
rdingly. This way my time and their time is used efficiently. Please reach out to me with any questions and to set up a lesson!
I consider Michelle to be one of the best tutors I have had. She helps me understand the material perfectly and is always willing to help me at any time. She helps me see the best in me when it comes to my knowledge on something. I 100% recommend Michelle to everyone!
February 20, 2019
Michelle is super helpful and accommodating! I have only had two lessons but I can feel myself improving already. I have learned so much in the past two weeks and have eliminated some of my bad habits when playing. I'm super grateful that I was able to find her!
Let's learn math together! Multiplication, division, the order of operations, decimals, fractions, measurements and more, will no longer be a challenge!
I am a Licensed Court Interpreter, native Romanian, and I love sharing my knowledge with students! Proper pronunciation, correct grammar, and rich vocabulary are essential elements to attaining fluency in a foreign language. Multiplication, division, the order of operations, decimals, fractions, measurements and more, will no longer be a challenge! I have considerable experience working as a linguist for the US Army, as a translator, and substitute teacher as well. Learning will be fun and rewarding!
A very good lesson with focus on pronunciation, grammar, and spelling. Very helpful!
July 25, 2019
A good and promising beginning lesson.

I'm biased on this tutor because of a previous opportunity to serve our nation together. Anisoara was the most reliable member of Romanian interpreters when military missions required our role in international encounters. She is patient, articulate, intelligent, and very respected in the USA interpreters community. I highly recommend her to teach you the language and culture of the old Dacia (now Romania).
I’m not like any other Math teacher you’ve had in the past. I’m patient, understanding, and I like to break things down based on how you learn. I’ve been teaching for 6 years and what I’ve learned that’s most important with students is getting to know them, and how they learn best, truly helps them retain information longer. Whether you’re kinesthetic, oral, visual, or a combination like I am, I can individualize the lesson to meet your needs.
My name is Mrs. Johnson or Mrs. A. I’ve been teaching Math and Music for over 6 years. Some may say that’s not a lot of time teaching compared to my fellow colleagues on here, but I say, you gain more experience with time, which is why I’m here. I want to be able to expand my teaching experience, while simultaneously growing your student. I’ve ran a tutoring and enrichment learning center for 2 years and have been a classroom teacher for over 4 years (Elementary, Middle and High). My teaching style is flexible and adaptable, ensuring that I meet my students where they are and work with them upwards, not backwards. I know how frustrating that can be. I believe repetition and practice are key components to retention. Individualized and adaptable lessons to students’ learning styles are what makes my lessons unique. I like
building relationships with my students and praising them along their journey. I’m a Mother, so I have high standards for my students because I know the potential each child holds, and I’m here to help unlock and unload that potential, one lesson at a time! 😃 Let’s Learn!
I like to bring a sense of humor along to take the edge off math and help "I hate math!" students. I also break down hard-to-understand concepts into easier steps. I've taught hundreds of students everything from basic math to the Quadratic Formula!
Hi, everyone! Do you want your student to improve in math? Does your student need someone to help with developing writing or grammar or reading skills? Would you like your student to be able to throw a football 75 yards in the air?
If you answered "Yes" to any of those questions, I can help! (Except for the one about the football; maybe your student should try pumping iron or something.)
I've worked with kids in math and English for many years, including my own (my wife and I have four graduates), and I enjoy making subjects fun and interesting with students, while we get the job done.
Some valuable learning, a pat on the back, and a shot of confidence: that's what I offer to families. Thanks for checking me out!
Need help with your basic math? Mean, median, mode, range? Graphs? Confused on a formula? Ms. Flowers is here to help.
My name is Tamia Flowers, and I love math. Although I’m young, I take my studies seriously and I love to tutor those who struggle. I am easygoing and will answer any questions you may have. Thank you for taking the time to read my introduction, happy learning!
"My daughter, Anna, is attending 6th grade maths. The lessons inspire Anna and she is now more confident and proficient. The lessons are very interesting
and useful. Thank you very much Ashwini teacher!!"
"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."
"This teacher was so excellent! She is very caring and patient and understands what she is talking about. I started improving in math within a week! She of
fered me food as well!"
"She was really great, smart, funny-easy to work with."
"My son had a wonderful lesson and was well prepared for his exam"
"Great tutor. Was Tutoring my son for elementary school math. Gave him confidence and knowledge. Unfortunately we had to stop with Julia because we m
oved out of the area. I wish she was still my son's tutor."
"Julia is not only a great math teacher, who can explain challenging concepts to the kids, but also a wonderful and caring person. My son has been taking p
rivate math lessons with her. She makes the lessons challenging enough so the kid is not bored, but not so challenging that he doesn't feel discouraged. He is in third grade and they've been covering 4th grade material which allows him to get ahead of the curve."
"Mr T is excellent! He puts time and effort into teaching. So glad to find him. I highly recommend him."
When you're trying to teach children about learning fractions, making it fun for them is important. Whether you're a responsible parent helping your child with homework problems, or a math tutor looking to spice up some lesson plans, incorporating some fun and creativity when learning fractions can help bring the level of understanding up quickly.
When fun is called for, you can't argue with educational games! The two are nearly synonymous! If you can line up a few games t …
