I have returned to my passion for teaching young people mathematics. I understand how daunting math can be and how easy it is to feel left behind by the classroom teacher. We go at your pace. Math can be abstract. I will help you make the abstract real and relevant. Patience on my part is the most important part of the tutoring process.

I stress understanding rather than memorizing formulas. This ensures my students can derive formulas/solutions even without memorization.

I know firsthand how difficult it is to learn programming whether you are a total newbie, or a budding intermediate, but I have overcame these challenges myself and will guide you to overcome them too. I also have close to 8 years of tutoring experience, which will surely come in handy!

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

I'm a DC licensed Special Education Teacher with a Master's of Arts in Teaching for Special Education. For the past 5 years I've helped elementary students grades 1-6 to overcome the most difficult of academic challenges to perform on grade level. Before that I worked for 2 years as a high school teacher's aide for students with learning disabilities. Prior to that, I worked as a substitute teacher, and as a tutor for various tutoring agencies and after-school programs. I'm also trained in Montessori Math materials for lower and upper elementary. Hablo Espanol tambien. :-) I hope to work with you soon!

Kepa has been great- my daughter doesn't love math but has a smile on her face at the end of every session! Thank you for helping my daughter learn to love the subject!!
Laura W.
After my first lesson, I have already learned more than I thought I would in multiple lessons. Kepa is an amazing, kind and personable person and a wonderful instructor and I am looking forward to continuing to work with him on my writing as I feel he has the knowledge and passion for writing that I'm looking for in a teacher. Thank you so much, Kepa!

Dr. Nupur is the best teacher ever, we feel lucky to have found her at takelessons.

Her background is impeccable and in addition, she is a teacher who cares. She cared about my daughter, her progress (high school, chemistry) and well-being. My daughter's progress in less than 1 month was amazing: she went from 'we're a bit concerned for your grade' to the point she was helping others in class.

Dr. Nupur is the kind of teacher you wish your kids to have. I recommend her highly.

I aced my MCATs. Thank you Dr. Pande.

"Steve is a Godsend. My son has had multiple tutors, but he never actually liked nor thought any of them were any good. He is a very hard sell. After the first lesson my son informed me that Steve is good. "He taught me something useful" Week after week my son writes an essay. He is actually working at it. Steve is very soft spoken, encourages in a very natural way which works extremely well for my son. My mission this summer was to get my son writing every week, now its happening and I hear zero complaints. Waazaam!"
