Brian was very patient with my son. He made sure he was aware of his instructions. He even guided him back to the correct path when he was unsure of the information. Great teacher!

Tremendously knowledgeable and able to teach complex things very simply. Everything he taught me was so much more profound and important to understanding music that I could have imagined. Highly recommend him as a mentor if one is at all interested in music.

Brian is wonderful! He is extremely helpful and patient.
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.

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.
***ADDRESSES WITHIN REMOTE AREAS (no public transit or bicycle access) DIFFICULT TO SERVICE PHYSICALLY. Lesson cancellations and schedule changes need to be submitted through Takelessons.com student website, relieve busy teacher from multiple informal requests***
My style and attitude toward teaching is a balance between subject delivery and reflective, supportive interaction. I seek to enable current research on education for busy, yet goal-driven student interests. This is done through customized online lessons coordinating the experience with optimal resources and tools: ESL and Speech students learn to monitor their own phonological issues with dedicated software/feedback, guiding German students through conversational dialogues, and ensuring relevant resources for Excel and related productivity lessons.
Due to my limited funds
, I do not have direct experience with the Adobe suite, but I have extensive knowledge of related, free distributions that are transferable. Possibly the only PhD on Takelessons server from a regionally accredited university, I am a member of the American Council on Foreign Language Learning and the Association for Language Learning. My most popular subjects are as follows:
North American English Pronunciation Practice for ESL (NAEPP-ESL) or Accent-Reduction: *****Each Online Lesson with Free Video & MP3 recordings, and about 50 GB onedrive folder for lesson files*****
Carefully following Burkkowsky's (1969) multi-media method, I have taught this subject for over five years for public and private causes, such as library, individuals, and language schools. German Language and Culture: *****Each Online Lesson with Free Video & MP3 Recordings and about 50 GB onedrive folder for lesson files*****
Microsoft Excel: ***It is recommended students own or have regular access to a personal computer after 2002 in order to get the best benefit***
Typing: ***It is recommended students own or have regular access to a personal computer after 2002 in order to get the best benefit***
Dr. G has been able to identify and target very specific problems in my speech. His method is very effective. He is an excellent teacher!

Among the accent reduction teachers that I had before, Erol is the only one who actually could find the problems in my accent! The program he uses is very useful. The way he explains things or exaggerates the mistakes will help me to correct my accent. Overall, an awesome experience and I would totally recommend him to anyone.
I work as a tutor and mentor in many of those fields for years. It was and is a side business, but I always enjoyed teaching. I am looking forward to move on with you and / or your kids. Have a great day, Marcel
Update 02/10/15: Takelessons is a great way to teach and a fantastic and easy way to learn for students. I currently have 3 students per week, with several hours. I really enjoy it, either online via Skype or Facetime or Live at the students place. Hit me up and let's move something together.
I learned a lot from Marcel and liked his vision of how to redo the garden. The original garden was cluttered with overlapping plants and we discussed how to improve it. He pulled out his iPad and made several garden sketches that were helpful. The original garden was cluttered with overlapping plants and we decided to remove several of them and re-"orchestrate" the remaining ones. (We only bought new plants if they were needed to realize the new garden vision.) He is also a very hard worker, helping me (physically) transplant and add plants as required. For example, we transplanted a 100+ (?) pound Sago palm across the front yard. I would never have done that on my own (too heavy for me) but together we did it! Highly recommended. Bill

Excellent teacher. We took a 20'x2' section of "dirt" in the back, redid the soil, transplanted a rose in that section, added two other new roses and a bunch of ground cover. Looks great! Recommended.

I did not actually take any lessons with him, but his schedule did not reflect what showed as available in Takelessons. He had a very bad attitude and would not actually schedule the lesson after several exchanges.
My name is Paul. I have previously worked as a Math and Physics Tutor (4+ years experience) with the NASA Scholars Program in Los Angeles, tutoring College and High School students(+test prep;SAT,GED,ASVAB,ACT,CSET,GMAT,MCAT,GRE).I have assisted Undergraduate(UCLA,USC,SMC,LMU,CSUN,Cal State LB,Lafayette University,Brown University,Harvard,University of Texas,University of Miami,Boston University,University of Birmingham,University of Colorado,NYU,Vanderbilt,UC-Berkeley,Yale and others)and Graduate(MBA to Phd) students(5+ years experience) in STATISTICS,SPSS/STATA/PROGRAMMING DATA ANALYSIS for dissertations and Data/Business Consulting for organizations/startups.
I have strong backgrounds in Math and Architecture.I completed 2 and 1/2 years of Architecture at the Los Angeles Institute of Architecture and Design in Fall 2004. In Spring 2
004 I was the recipient of a student competition award from the American Institute of Architects at the A-D Museum in West Hollywood. I enrolled at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona-CAL POLY- to complete Majors in Architecture and MATH; and received the Don Leiffer award for excellence in Math at West LA College(spring 2005).
My professional architecture internships(TFA,K-RML,AJLA)Sports background and interactions with my nephews and nieces allowed me to use visual and Verbal ques in lessons.Math and Physics can be fun for you.
I have a Masters Degree in Information Technology (focus in Cybersecurity) and a Bachelors in Computer Science.
I am an Applications Developer for the United Parcel Service (UPS) and have been employed by them for over a decade.
I have extensive experience training junior developers and tutoring college students in Computer Programming and Mathematics. I am able to communicate and teach in such a way that is clear and unequivocal. I introduce technical terms as we progress and never overwhelm the individual with too much information at one time.
I'm lead vocalist, lead guitarist & songwriter for a well-known touring rock band with a worldwide fan base. I graduated from New York University with Bachelor's of Music in jazz guitar, and am currently teaching around 50 lessons a week to students ranging in ability from beginner to professional. My versatility, experience and formal training helps me to make the learning experience easy, stress free and fun.
Currently, I play in 3 active bands gigging regularly & produce artists for their own projects. I spent much of the past 15 years touring, writing and recording for my bands and with internationally known artists/celebrities. My songs have been licensed for national/international TV (E!, MTV, VH1, Oxygen, TBS and more) and in video games.
Last year, I signed a major label publishing deal with Fieldhouse Music/BMG played throughou
t Europe (and taught online lessons while away). Since 2014, I have released 5 singles and two EPs and in early 2017 another two EPs. I am currently endorsed by PRS guitars, Elixir Strings, & Godin Guitars/Bass Guitars.
I teach my clients in my creative and comfortable home teaching studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I work with singers, guitarists/bassists, pianists & songwriters/producers/composers in a wide age range, assorted skill levels with a variety of musical goals.
Some of the musical styles I regularly teach: Rock, Indie Rock, Metal, Hard Rock, Alternative, Pop, Punk, Blues, Jazz, Funk, Soul, R&B, Classical.
Hi! My name is David M. and I'm studying a degree in Computer Science. I'm in the last year so I hope that next year I will graduate.
All the assignments that I had to do in the previous years have showed me that programming isn't an ability for only a few people. If you have the correct attitude, motivation and see how it can change your life and the life of other people, you will learn easily all the keys to be a successful programmer.
In my classes I pretend to give this knowledge for my students and I believe that the world could be efficient, sustainably and better if we know how to control technology and use them with goodness, instead of letting technology control us.
I have advanced knowledge in C, C++, Java and Python that I have been learning for years so I can teach you from the basics to an expertise level.
learned in deep Java while I was developing an app in Android, so I can help you if you want to know about making apps with Android Studio and more.
In addition, I have deep understanding in less known languages that implement programming paradigms that are very useful for solving certain type of problems: • Haskell (functional programming) • Prolog, CLIPS (declarative programming and SAT)
Finally, I know about efficient algorithm techniques (greedy, dynamic programming, flow networks); some AI techniques like local and heuristic search and compiler concepts (ANTLR, grammars).
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any doubt or you want to know if I can help you with other topic.
This was my first time using Take Lessons and my experience with David is very recommendable. He knows how to teach to a beginner all the small details with very patience and it helped me a lot. He talks in a very comfortable and understable way and he demonstrate that he's a highly skilled developer. I would definitely reserve another lesson with him.
"Although I took only one lesson with Jessica, she gave me a terrific foundation that is now allowing me to then go forward and learn more on my own. I wil
l likely schedule additional lesson with her once I get stuck and need more personalized help. Lessons with her are a great way to get introduced to or brush up on Photoshop. Yay, Jessica!"
"Easy to work with and very responsive"
"Had to write a separate review for this subject. Jamone taught me step-by-step how to use my Cannon Rebel EOS T5. I am a youtube vlogger, and I was lookin
g to create higher quality videos for my viewers. Jamone gave me tons of camera knowledge to better my videos. Thanks!"
"Cheryl is very patient and knowledgeable! As a complete beginner to WordPress, she helped me set up practical foundation needs for my website. I would rec
ommend her to anyone else who is just starting out on WordPress!"
"I signed my mom up for a 30 minute session with Jessica as a Christmas gift and my mom loved it! Jessica answered a lot of Photoshop questions my mom had
and explained things step-by-step. Thanks, Jessica!"
"Jason was extremely patient and helpful. He helped me with power point and word and I learned so much in a short amount of time!"
"When our church needed a total website update and we had no one with any expertise or experience, Etana, very patiently and professionally walked us throu
gh what we needed, how it could be achieved, and ways to make it much more cost effective than the archaic experience we had before. Etana is definitely good at explaining technical information to a neophyte in a way that can be understood, and without making you feel unintelligent. She is a great tutor."
"Awesome! He made it look so easy and it felt like i was talking to my best friend the whole time. Very impressed!"
"I hired Katherine at a time when my department, and the company, needed someone who could step in and become an immediate contributor to the creative proc
ess. Katherine was able to design on-target, cost-effective and timely Marketing Communications material with very little supervision."
