About Jason
TakeLessons.com Instructor since 2005, Jason M. is now available for online lessons worldwide featuring multiple-camera angles and a share screen experience leaving no stone un-turned!

Jason has been playing guitar for over 15 years and teaching music since 1996. Although trained in standard teaching methods, he has developed his own method of teaching to positively enhance the student€™s strength, dexterity, ear-training, memorization and techniques. His goal as a teacher is specifically designed to help you achieve your goals as an artist and a musician.

This year Jason was also the Music Director at the National Guitar Workshop Day Jams Rock Music Day Camp where students ages 7-15 came out to form bands, record original material and master their craft. He also taught beginning to advanced guitar/ vocals/ performance and songwri
ting as hosted a recording clinic at the end of each day.

Jason has host student showcases/charity benefits where his students were able to get on stage and show off their new talent and perform with other musicians. It wasn't mandatory though, if you were just looking to come out and support there was no pressure other than to come out and have fun.

Jason has been transcribing for guitar and bass since the age of 18 and since then has become a master of the craft including both 5 line staff and tablature, hand-crafted exercises and deconstructions to better enhance the students learning. Artists and genres that Jason has experience with range from Classic Rock, Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, Guns N' Roses, Santana, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, Robert Johnson, Pierce the Veil, Paramore, All Time Low, Demi Lava to, Iron Maiden, Motorhead, Pantera, Avenged Sevenfold, The White Stripes, Green Day, Old Crow Medicine Show, Taylor Swift, Mumford and Sons, Bruno Mars, Rob Zombie, John 5, Audioslave, Rage Against the Machine, Van Morrison, the Beatles, AC/DC, ZZ-Top, Bullet For My Valentine, All That Remains, Ozzy, Black Label Society, Sublime, Aerosmith, At the Drive In, Type O Negative, the Black Keys, the Pixies, the Toadies, Black Sabbath, Jason Mraz, Lady GaGa, John Mayer and Journey.

Jason attended the University of Alaska, Anchorage where his degree is in Music and Business. He is constantly continuing his education with music theory courses as well as private guitar instruction. He attends guitar workshops and seminars by artists such as John5 and Kerry King who are known as some of the worlds finest guitar players. He reviews every day from a wide range of over 1000 sources working to become a better musician and instructor.

Another nice feature that you might enjoy from one on one sessions with Jason is learning the ability to craft and record your own songs using state of the art technology that caters to your own unique personality. There are no limits!

Jason teaches all experience levels from beginner to intermediate and advanced as well as artists that are signed to labels.

Local news outlet Fox 5 did a segment with one of his students who overcame issues with ADD and depression as a result of taking guitar lessons.

His students advance quickly, some have released albums, been in Guitar World Magazine as well as its online companion and won awards for their music websites.

Jason is a remarkable teacher! He truly has been able to break through a mental block I've always had regarding thinking in chords rather than just reading notes. His desire to help the student reach a personal goal is so evident. Jason remained so confident that a 'light bulb' would come on that I started to believe it myself. He has put me on a good path now and did it with his confidence in me and by providing the right tools. Thank you for your patience, confidence in me, and your calm, pleasant way of teaching, Jason.

Master in all elementary math concepts. Can identify student shortfalls and address them through the subject fundamentals approach and by tying in real world applications for easier grasp of material.

About Daniel
818-577-7000

I'm a graduate of UCLA School of Engineering with a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering. I have a passion for explaining how the physical world works through math and physics along with 9 years of tutoring experience in those subjects, test prep, and mentorship programs. The teaching strategy I believe in emphasizes subject fundamentals, a powerful and necessary tool for higher problem solving. This strategy has proven very effective regardless of the student's educational background or mental ability. Besides being knowledgeable, I am motivating, caring, and patient in guiding your student to academic success!

Executive Functioning is a separate realm that tutoring can assist in. It deals with cognitive processes including organization, time management, and study skills. Much of the difficulty students face in academic subje
cts can be attributed to the lack of executive functioning. They either cannot keep up with the pace and workload that advanced courses demand or haven't figured out the best way to study for themselves. I am able to assess a student's shortcomings and formulate a plan for higher achievement.

Math:
• Elementary • Pre-Algebra • Algebra 1 & 2 • Geometry • Pre-Calculus
• Trigonometry • AP Calculus • Applied/Business Calculus • Differential Equations

Physics:
• AP Physics 1 & 2 • College Physics

Test Prep:
• SAT I & II • ACT • ISEE • SSAT • HSPT • GRE • and more

Computers:
• MS Word • Excel • PowerPoint • Adobe Acrobat • General Windows/MAC

Mentorship:
• Grade Monitoring • Teacher Collaboration

Executive Functioning:
• Organization • Time Management • Study Skills

• Completely turned around achievement and self-confidence of mentored students
• Track record of student improvement particularly in math and physics

Daniel helped me reinstall core Algebra 2 concepts that I learned the past year within a couple of hours. He helped thoroughly explain concepts that I might have had trouble with, and tried to find different approaches to the problem, so that I could derive the answer. He truly is a caring tutor and person.

I have been teaching math for 10 years. If math is not one of your strong skills and you are struggling with it, I will show you how much fun it can be. I love teaching math and i love to hear: " I miss your class "
so, let's get started!

About mahnaz
I have been teaching mathematics as an instructor since 2007. I genuinely enjoy teaching, both for the joy of sharing mathematics with others, and for the opportunity to revisit old material and enhance my own understanding. I am confident in my ability to teach a variety of courses, notably
in areas of pure mathematics such as analysis, algebra, and topology.
It is my opinion that students generally learn mathematics best through
example. Thus after introducing any new concepts, the majority of time in my classroom is usually spent working through as many examples as possible. I carefully choose my examples to have enough variety so that the students can distinguish the features that are common to all from the features
that are specific to a particular example.
I am so flexible and adapting to my students and I will never gi
ve up:)

Do you find math to be boring? Does staring at numbers for too long make your head hurt? Let me help you with this problem and help make math enjoyable for you! Math has always been my favorite subject since I learned the "math facts" in elementary school. I am excited to share with your this joy for math and hopefully make math their new favorite subject. To do this, I have learned countless ways throughout the year to make math exciting for kids and hope to use this to benefit my students! Can't wait to help tutor you!

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!

I believe that a love of learning and a love of teaching go hand in hand. Teaching and tutoring allow me to help others develop that same love of learning that drives me in my studies. I find joy in showing students that intelligence is not fixed, helping them prove to themselves that they can improve their performance in any class with hard work.

The best tutors are people who love both the subjects they tutor and the feeling of helping someone succeed. I have always loved math and science, and part of my tutoring process is helping others to appreciate these topics as well. With words of encouragement and a non-judgmental attitude, I guide students toward a deeper understanding and better problem-solving strategies.

I prepare in advance for every lesson, regardless of the topic, to ensure that I am refreshed on the subject and to develop any materials I might use during the session (equation sheets, worksheets, etc.). I develop practice problems during math and science ...

About Allison
Hello! I have been tutoring for nine years, and I have a Master's degree in Astronomy & Astrophysics. I love teaching, and I make sure to incorporate real-life examples into my math and science problems to help people develop an appreciation of the subjects. When tutoring French, I add elements of culture that I have learned from my multiple trips to France (including an entire summer in Paris!) to make the language come alive.

I have previous experience teaching elementary math. I keep my students engaged in what is often considered to be a difficult subject by providing them with fun lesson plans and plenty of verbal encouragement.

About Rachel
Hi, I'm Rachel and I would love to become your tutor! After receiving a Bachelor's degree in English Literature, I spent a year teaching ESL to freshmen and sophomores at a university in Harbin, China. I then spent two years teaching English literature to middle school students in a private school in New York City. I also just finished a Master's in Education program specializing in English Language Teaching in England while tutoring high school students in English literature through Tutor Doctor. I have also done independent tutoring and last summer I taught a six-week long course for SAT Reading and Writing.

What I love the most about tutoring is getting to experience students having a "light bulb" moment, when the topics that once confused and/or frustrated them begin to make sense. I strive to help students achieve their goals wit
h an encouraging demeanor and engaging lesson plans. Please do not hesitate to contact me and schedule a lesson if you're interested!
