I have taught over 30 math students at all levels, elementary through high school and college, algebra 1 and 2, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus and standardized test math (ACT, SAT, GRE, GMAT, ASVAB, GED).

I have turned D's and F's into B's and A's. Let me show you how successful you or your child can be!

About Matthew
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!

GMAT, GRE - graduate admissions

Matt really helped me improve both my SAT and my AC T test scores. His explanations were clear and I thought that I learned quite a lot when I had him as a tutor.

As you can see I’ve written a review for Matthew regarding my daughters success (her test was last year) so I’d like to write one for my son also. My son was not driving at the time and Matthew agreed to drive to our home and teach him for an additional nominal fee. My son also took multiple tutoring sessions with Matthew and learned something new every time. He felt confident going into the test, confident in his ability to complete the exam and do well on it. Matthew takes his time with each individual and works with their specific needs. My children needed help in different areas of the ACT and Matthew was more than capable of helping them in those areas. My sons ACT score also went up 4 points after working with Matthew! I can’t say enough how professional, kind and thorough he is.

Experienced elementary teacher available for eager students of all experience levels and ages K through 6! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of mathematical skills. I teach in a way that is geared toward the student to help them learn at their level. I have taught both traditional and Montessori math.

About Jessica
I have been playing the flute for over 25 years. I also hold a current Utah teaching license and have taught both seventh and fourth grade. I have experience teaching students with special needs and have different techniques to help students with their individual needs. At the end of each lesson, you will be provided with a detailed list of what we worked on and what should be worked on for our next lesson. I utilize google docs to help keep track of notes from our lessons.

I am an MIT tutor specializing in math and science, and I have taught math anywhere between pre-algebra and calculus for 5 years. I have received perfect scores on both SAT Math, ACT Math, and SAT Math Level 2 (SAT Subject Test). I have taken AP Calculus BC while in high school, and I have taken Multivariable Calculus and Differential Equations at MIT, and I actively participated in many math competitions through elementary, middle, and high schools.

Before the lessons, I like to talk with parents, students, and/or teachers to fully gauge what they have been struggling with and how to best help them. Then I identify the student's gap in knowledge while helping them complete their homework and give them additional drilling problems as needed to help them fully master the materials and do well on their tests. I always carry around books containing extra problems depending on the students' levels and goals.

Since geometry questions, especially proofs, are not very obvious, I often ...

About Nayoon
I'm an MIT tutor specializing in math and test prep, and I have taught math (anywhere from prealgebra to calculus) for 6 years. I have gotten perfect scores on SAT Math, SAT Subject Test Math Level 2, and ACT Math, and I also recently helped one of my students raise his SAT scores from 670 to 800 in a month. I also have taken AP Calculus BC (single-variable calculus) in high school and Multivariable Calculus and Differential Equations at MIT. I have been an active member of math team from elementary to high school, and my sister and I solve math problems for fun in our spare time.

I'm passionate about learning and student development. I read about learning hacks when I'm tired, and, in my ideal vacation, I would learn about all things that are on my bucket list (yes, I'm serious). I'm also near-obsessed about students' experiences and
their development and nearly always think about the ways to improve their experiences. The student testimonials below confirm their excellent experiences.

“I would not have passed my test in such a short time without her. I hired her a week before my test. She was very professional and very smart, and she used different technique to help me remember.”
- Fabiola L.

“Calc is going great. I got all A’s on my first three tests. Thank you for all your help!” 
- Mark G.

“My daughter is so happy about her A in math. Thank you for everything you are teaching her!”
- S., Newton, MA

I believe in in-depth learning. In-depth learning helps my student build the foundation necessary to succeed in their future courses. To facilitate this type of learning, many of my lessons feature derivation of formulas. For the lessons that do not involve formulas, I present a few simple concepts from which we can derive and solve many other problems. My lessons also feature numerous questions to enhance student engagement and to improve student confidence of having them solve the problem on their own as much as possible. I then drill my students with practice problems and get them to explain until I'm fully convinced that my students truly understood the material.

Though I specialize in gifted students, I also have worked with students from all kinds of background. Most of my students are either high school or college students, but I also worked with younger students. I also helped some students implement organizational tips and develop study skills necessary to succeed in their future classes. My students are from all over the world--China, France, Korea, Puerto Rico, Taiwan, Vietnam, and United States. To this day, my closest friends are still the international students. English is my second language as well, and I certainly empathize with students who struggle with the English language.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or if you think we may be good fit!

Can teach anyone learning Calculus 2 or below! I have had years and years of math experience, it has always been my best subject so I have a very good understanding of it. I am going to be a math minor to go along with my major in computer science. I can teach any level, from a little child learning addition to a freshman in college learning calculus.

About Joseph
I have an outgoing and sociable personality. I typically get along with everyone! Also I am a very huge nerd who really gets into programming, physics, and math. Having good communication skills will immensely help me deliver my knowledge across to the student.

As a STEM professional, I know how important math is in one's life. As a math tutor, I get satisfaction when I see the look of excitement and joy on a student's face when they understand a problem that gave them trouble before our lesson. While each lesson will sharpen an underdeveloped skill, I will also walk through a student's academic homework with them, giving extra attention to areas in which the student feels less comfortable.

About Christopher
I am a professional designer and researcher who has successfully taught students of all experience levels in a range of subjects including architecture, college-application essays, design software, English, and math. I graduated from Columbia, and I am passionate about helping others learn.

My strengths include working with students to visualize and achieve their goals, discovering areas for improvement, and, most importantly, getting results. My students have gone from zero knowledge in architecture and design software to full literacy. My students have increased English and math scores both in the classroom and on exams. Finally, with my coaching, students have written college application essays that earned them a place at prestigious institutions such as Columbia, Cornell, and Harvard, among others.

I live in the New York City
area and enjoy working with both in-person and online students.

I teach Mathematics (basic through trigonometry) with wit, humor, and in a relaxed atmosphere. I have tutored ADD/ADHD/ Autistic students, with no pressure. We will accomplish things together, if the student is not intimidated, and willing to learn.
My students stay with me because, we are friends. I assign homework, but nothing draconian.
I deal well with all people, cultures, and lifestyles.

Thank You,
John

Hello,
I am John. I'm a young 53 yr. old male. My girlfriend calls me "her payaso" (Spanish=clown). I grew up in Los Angeles, but have lived in this area for 25 years. I have tutored for more than 6 years.I am disabled, so, I walk with a cane.
My degree is in computer science, but I have, always, loved math. I have some basic techniques that work for most students. For more advanced students I can, still, make difficult operations seem simple. We should get along, and I won't use pressure for learning.
