I have taught over twenty English students from kindergarten through college graduates (research papers, policy analysis papers, etc.).
I build language arts skills in speaking, reading comprehension, listening and writing. I cover vocabulary, spelling, grammar, sentence structure, tenses, subject-verb agreement and punctuation, etc.
Let me show you how successful you or your child can be!
Dear Parents and Students,
May I be a personal tutor for you or your child? I have been successfully tutoring for over 12 years. I have great references, and I am one of the top tutors because I am so easy to work with. I teach in person, or via TakeLessons classroom, telephone, Skype, FaceTime, Google Hangouts, Join.me, Appear.in, Screenhero (remote desktop, screen sharing) interactive whiteboards, as well as email attachments (PDF, Word, Excel, etc.) I graduated with honors, Summa Cum Laude from Case Western Reserve University, where I made the Dean's List. I also earned a Provost Academic Scholarship for my excellent test scores, including 34 in ACT mathematics and 780 in SAT mathematics.
In addition to teaching for Cleveland schools, I currently teach 20 private sessions each week, 1st through 12th grade, as well as college stud
ents and business professionals. I have also served on the faculty at Cuyahoga Community College.
I am patient, friendly and many students tell me that I explain concepts more effectively than their teachers. I am available weekdays or weekends, days or nights, throughout the entire year. I would be happy to answer any questions you might have regarding my experience and teaching methods. While it should go without saying, I have a clean background that has been verified by the FBI and BCII. Let me know if you would like to set up an introductory lesson to design a customized strategy. There is no obligation to continue unless a customer is 100% satisfied.
I am one of the Top Five Tutors for: 1. most diverse subject matter 2. widest student age range 3. farthest geographical regions 4. largest client base 5. most hours taught monthly
Please note: I have set up my billing in thirty minute increments. Thus, I am able to offer lessons of varying lengths. However, I would appreciate longer sessions. I thank you for your time and consideration and look forward to being at your service!

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.
Want to speak English more proficiently? Want to sound more like a native English speaker? I can help you learn more clear pronunciation, learn idioms, and learn the vocal inflections that are common in American English.
I have been signing since 1998, spending every chance I can among my Deaf friends and immersing myself in the language as often as possible. I received my BA in Music with a certification to teach at Lubbock Christian University in 1998. Later I attended the Interpreter Certification program at Burlington County College in New Jersey from 2009-2011, and during that time took a summer course at Gallaudet University for the Deaf in Washington DC. Then in 2014 I received my MEd in Curriculum and Instruction with Instructional Technology from Houston Baptist University. I have been teaching ASL at the high school level since 2011. I am also one of the interpreters for the Deaf at my church in Fort Bend County, TX, outside of Houston, where I am a member and actively involved in the Deaf Ministry.
Please feel free to ask me any questions y
ou have. I'm happy to get back with you, and I look forward to teaching you!
Native speaker of Russian with a near-native proficiency in English. Balanced diet of grammar focus and fluency building. Communicative approach, based on your interests, portfolio, meaningful tasks, and real-life scenarios. Looking forward to working with you!
Hi, my name is Maryna! . I'm from Crimea. I've been living in the USA for over 10 years, which helped me develop a near-native proficiency in English. This is very helpful when it comes to grammar explanations and helping my students understand the subtleties of meaning. . I'm a full-time educator. I learn about latest language-learning tools and methodologies on a daily basis. I have a degree in teaching foreign languages, and I started teaching over a decade ago. I have taught intensive professional courses and I have developed textbooks. . I specialize in adult learners of Russian and English, as well as my 5 year-old son, who is learning both:) I study several foreign languages myself, so I have endless empathy for my students' efforts and successes. . I will taylor our classes to your needs and interests. You can sign
up for 30-, 45-, 60-, and 90-minute lessons. . 30-minute sessions are a new option. Here is why I added this option: - They could be done in the chitchat format to maintaint and improve your conversational skills. - They could be conducted in a Q&A format, if you need specific questions answered. - They are essencial if you need help with a self-study plan and periodical feedback on your self-study progress. . Please, feel free to send me a message if you have any questions. I'm looking forward to working with you! . Maryna
Привет, меня зовут Марина! . Я из Крыма. Я живу в США уже больше 10 лет, и за это время мне удалось заговорить по-английски почти в совершенстве. Это очень облегчает объяснения грамматики и нюансов в значении слов. . Я постоянно вращаюсь в сфере образования и стараюсь одной из первых узнавать о новых инструментах и методологиях преподавания. У меня красный диплом и больше 10 лет опыта в области изучения и преподавания иностранных языков. Я преподавала профессиональные курсы и разрабатывала учебники. . Сейчас я специализируюсь на преподавании русского и английского языков взрослым, а так же моему пятилетнему сыну, который учит оба языка:) Также я сама изучаю несколько иностранных языков, поэтому ратую и радуюсь за успехи своих студентов, как за свои собственные. . Я разработаю программу для вас на основе ваших нужд и интересов. Вы можете выбрать уроки по 30, 45, 60 или 90 минут. . Я недавно добавила 30-минутные уроки. И вот почему: - Они могут проводиться в формате непринуждённой беседы, если вы хотите поддерживать и постепенно повышать свои разговорные навыки. - Они могут иметь формат "вопрос-ответ", если вы ищите ответы на конкретные вопросы. - Они могут быть полезны, если вам нужна помощь, чтобы правильно организовать своё самообучение и получать периодическую оценку своего прогресса и рекомендации преподавателя. . Не стесняйтесь написать мне, если у вас есть какие-либо вопросы. С нетерпением жду ваших сообщений! . Марина
Марина, Вы прекрасный учитель! С вами очень приятно работать! Потому что Вы очень хороший человек , и я многому с вами учусь, особенно по урокам в Скайпе! 😃
Рада быть в вашей команде 😀

Maryna is an outstanding and talented professional, with an extraordinary ability for teaching and communicating with her pupils. She owns a vast culture -apart from being a consummated polyglot -which allows her to talk and explain all kind of subjects and to be easily understood by her pupils. I have been studying Russian with her, and I must admit that my level improved significantly since I met her. I highly recommend her to all those who wish to learn or improve their English or Russian. You will not regret it!

I have had numerous skype video Russian lessons from Maryna she tries to teach people a language the way they might naturally learn one as a native speaker , via conversation intersperesed with discussion of grammar rules when appropriate. I Also like her WhatsApp group which combines native Russian speakers learning English with English ( an interesting variety including native and. Non-native speakers from various spots on the globe) speakers learning Russian so that all can learn from each other. Maryna has a lot of experience learning various languages and teaching and this knowledge of the language learning process manifests itself in her teaching style.
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.
I can help with grammar, syntax, pronunciation, and essay writing skills. I have helped 1st through university students with essays and have won thousands of dollars in essay contests.
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 finding the source of motivation for others.
Are you frustrated with the college application process? I can assist in this area and in aclimating to college environment. I've mentored many students through college, with great success.
Are you tired of boring language lessons that do not focus on your needs? Would you like English lessons that are both fun and effective?
I am passionate about helping adult learners reach their English language learning goals! Additionally, I have:
• A master’s degree in education (TESOL) • Years of English teaching experience in the United States and abroad
I would love to talk to you about your English needs and work together to create a plan to help you succeed!
My life philosophy is it’s never too late to go for your dreams! Although my undergraduate degrees were in Business Administration/Accounting, I discovered my love for teaching when I had the opportunity to teach business English while living in Buenos Aires, Argentina for two years. After returning to the States and raising my daughter, I made the decision to go back to school and pursue a career in education.
I have taught adult ESL courses for several years now and recently earned a master’s degree in education (TESOL) with a concentration in adult education from Regent University. I truly love teaching English, and I’m constantly inspired by the amazing language learners I work with.
In my free time, I enjoy reading, traveling, and having fun with my family. :)
I will try to connect with you so that learning English appeals to you, the student. I feel that it is important to learn but also have fun while learning.
Hi my name is Chanel Brown, I am currently in my second year of college at Oakwood University. I love helping and teaching others it is very fun. I’m not studying English in college but I am a very good student and have always had good grades in all my classes especially English. I hope you choose me to be your next tutor.
I teach with the intent for you to retain, have fun and enjoy learning. Learning should not be stressful, and once we find your learning pattern we will customize the lesson to fit your specific needs. Everyone is different, those differences should not hinder your development.
Learning anything new can be a challenge, but its in uncomfortable places that we grow the most! I'm eager to make this fun and presented in a way where you will retain what is taught. I'm excited to get start in your journey of growth.
"Nick is very patient and knowledgeable. He has helped me reconstruct many paragraphs in essays/college papers that I had to write. He has a keen eye and s
ees all the little mistakes and ways things could be rewritten to convey point. He has looked over several of my papers and edited them, and also helped me to learn to write better- not just fixing the problem for me. I have watched my grades go from C's to A's over time, he's great !"
