Despite what TakeLessons says about my location, I can come to you even if you don't live on the East side.

About John

I have an associates degree in music and I have been teaching lessons for 10 years now. I also have experience as a substitute teacher. As a substitute, I have taught all grades, all subjects, and I have helped out many kinds of students each with their own way of learning.

Besides teaching, I love learning too. Anytime I have a question I immediately start seeking out the answer. Learning never stops!

*** Lesson Details ***
Ever wondered how musicians write music? Why do they make the choices they make? Why do those choices work? Why does music work the way that it does? I can answer all these questions and much more.

With me as your guide, I will unlock your musical superpowers and make you capable of things you didn't know were possible. I have many different methods for teaching not only technique, but how to listen, and ho

w to think creatively so that you can unlock your full potential.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide my guitar, picks, and tuner and that's really all you will need as well.

I'll occasionally bring my laptop with me to use some music software to assist in my lessons.

I'll always have pens and paper so I can make notes or diagrams if needed. I highly recommend that my students have a spiral notebook so I can more easily cater to them.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in many musical genres including rock, ska, punk, progressive, jazz, folk, and more. Music theory is a big part of what I do as it's the universal language of music. If you learn enough theory, you can learn ANY instrument.

My son was new guitar player, he has now had several lessons with John. We have seen his skills grown exponentially. John really connects with him and keeps him engaged. He has taught him soo much in such a short span of time. John is a fantastic teacher!

Private Math Teacher

I taught Math at CPS and in the North Suburbs of Chicago. I believe, my strengths are patience and the ability to explain material in a clear, simple way.

About Julia

I taught Algebra I and Geometry at Clemente High School in Chicago and AP Statistics, Geometry and Trigonometry at Libertyville High School Summer Program. I am currently teaching 7th and 8th grade Math at a private school in Buffalo Grove, IL. I love tutoring students of any age, from elementary to high school. It makes me happy when I see the progress they are making. My Master's Degree is in Curriculum and Instructions from Loyola University, Chicago.
At one point in my life I wanted to be a pharmacist, but when I became a teacher, I realized that that is what I was meant to be. I love helping people. I see how much difference it makes in a student's life when he or she starts to feel confident in Math class, starts to get high scores, starts to dream big. Math opens the doors to a better future, to a better career, to a higher s

elf-esteem. I am grateful for the opportunity to help to make it happen.

My daughter was doing well but short of excelling in math. I sent her to Julia for that extra push and confidence that she needed. She really helped her have confidence and made her thorough with her concepts. She been doing really great ever since!

Julia is a highly knowledgeable, professional and personable teacher. My son has been tutored by her since the age of 4 and is now 13. His MAP and PARCC scores are off the charts and he just received his placements for Stevenson High School with the recommendations for the highest math classes offered to incoming freshmen. Julia taught him to love and be passionate about mathematics. Her primary goal is to make sure that the students learn in a stress-free environment and with that strategy she is able to accomplish brilliant results. I recommend Julia highly. She is very approachable and patient, loves children and loves what she does.

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.

About Arnisha

Hello everyone,

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!

About Scott

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!

- Scott

Private Math Teacher

I have always had a great aptitude with math, be it playing the around the world multiplication game as a first grader with my fifth grade sister's class, to taking and passing the AP Calculus AB&BC & AP Statistics exams for college credit, to completing a mathematics minor along with my industrial engineering degree from the Pennsylvania State University. I am very detail oriented and understand how to break each math problem down into smaller, easier to understand steps to help any student improve their understanding of how to approach mathematics problems. As a father of two young children, one of which has special needs, I have plenty of practice reaching young learners, be it through games or outdoor activities.

About Eric

My name is Eric Hayes and I am a professional engineer with a strong mathematical background who is looking for students who are in need of a math tutor. I am the father of two small children, one of whom has special needs. I am a graduate of the Pennsylvania State University with a B.S in Industrial Engineering and a Mathematics minor. Whether your are looking for elementary school help, college level class help, or anything in between I have a lot of experience successfully passing AP exams and applying the math taught in my professional and day to day life. I am available to travel to student houses, teach online or teach students in my own home located in chester springs.
