About Julia
Hi! My name is Julia A. I have been tutoring students of all ages and skill levels at learning centers, colleges, libraries and schools since 2008.

My instruction extends nationwide, with students from all corners of the US, utilizing online tutoring services such as Skype.

My main field of study is in MATH (trig, algebra, geometry, precalculus), CHEMISTRY (high school and college), and PHYSICS (high school and college).

I completed my Bachelors in Physics and Mathematics Education at Hunter University and have gained experience with both in-person and online group instruction and curriculum development.

Some examples of the students I have tutored are: Elementary school students preparing for State competitions and exams; High school and College students in preparance for entrance exams, and in subjects such as algebra, geom
etry, trig, precalc, chemistry and physics.

I do Regents and SAT/ACT prep for these subjects as well as the GRE (These are NYS based High School Preparatory Exams - do not hesitate to ask should you need assistance with the ones offered in your state/country).

In addition, I am thorough and meticulous, by paying special attention to how the student grasps information and retains it, I prepare individualized handwritten reviews, with supplemental material found online and in texts.

I assign homework to keep my students ahead of what is going on in class, and a visual and intuitive understanding of the concepts I present is important to me, so I use visual aids (diagrams and interactive models) to help my students integrate what they learn with me in real life situations.

My instruction includes:
1. Tutoring based on the school curriculum
2. Instruction on the home-schooling curriculum
3. Assisting those with a gap in going back to school/university.

I start with an assessment based on what the student has trouble with or last remembers covering in school, and prepare material going from there.

As a result, my students all have improved grades without any need for cramming before tests, and I encourage a stress-free and easygoing learning environment.

My lessons are fun and enthusiastic - these subjects are beautiful and will help open your mind to new ways of thinking - whatever your field of study!

Julia creates her own curriculum which is better than anything my daughters receive in their schools.
I see marked improvements in their grades for this past year, and my eldest is actually skipping fourth grade as a result of lessons. I am astounded as to my girls' progress, and greatly appreciative of our tutor's expertise.
Her patient, methodical approach to teaching is why I see us remaining with her for all of our educational instruction. She has already taught arithmetic to my youngest (3rd grade), and algebra to my eldest (starting 5th this sept!), and is proceeding with more advanced math with no issue whatsoever. I cannot recommend her enough.

About Amy
I have been crocheting for over 15 years and knitting for over 5 years. My true passion is knitting but I teach both. I taught for Michael's craft stores for a little over a year and then decided to venture out on my own and teach privately until I am able to reach my ultimate goal of owning my own yarn store. My current students say I have a lot of patience and am a joy to learn with. I can teach anywhere from beginner lessons to advanced techniques such as cables, lace and socks.

I think Amy is great. I had a brain injury which makes it hard for me to follow directions, which I mentioned when I first spoke with the TakeLessons person. Amy is very patient with me.

About Lisa
I have taught jewelry lessons in different settings - through our church, at booth sales, and with friends. I love to see what ideas the students come up with! I may give the same materials to 5 students and each item is a different work of art. It makes my heart happy to have satisfied learners, so I will do my best to teach slowly when necessary and help define your unique style. Please do not hesitate to ask questions - I love to talk about jewelry!

About Morgan
Greetings!

My name is Morgan and I have been knitting for nearly a decade now. I believe that knitting is a deeply meditative experience and that it can be an emotionally and mentally healing exercise. Also, there are few things more satisfying than casting off a beautiful piece and wearing it the same day!

I have taught many different age groups, from 7 year olds to retired grandmothers who want to knit for their loved ones. I am an ambidextrous knitter (also called mirror knitting) so I happily teach left or right handed or mirror knitting. I do not like to tell people that they are knitting a wrong or right way, if you get the desired results and can translate a pattern to your understanding, that’s great!

I believe in slow ethical fashion and investing in clothing that will last years and be family heirlooms. My most movi
ng experience with knitting was while on a mission trip in Uganda. I was able to teach 30 women and nearly 50 young ladies/children to knit. It was the experience that cemented for my belief that absolutely anyone can learn to knit when given the time, patience, and supplies needed. This is why I am willing to provide supplies to students who are unable to buy their own. I believe in meeting students where they are at and using only positivity to teach.

My teaching style is to be student lead, hands off, and to discourage negative self talk and doubt. When the teacher behaves like the student is 100% capable, the attitude of the student reflects that confidence. It is my sincerest desire to spread the joys of knitting far and wide. Please join me for a lesson soon!

About Lydia
Hey everyone! I am a creator of many things, mostly fiber arts. I can knit, sew, embroidery, felt. I have been knitting for close to 20 years. I started when I was a child and never really stopped.

I started a fiber arts business with my dad that became very successful and has keep steady customers. The bulk of the business was knitted products, felting, and dyed products.

I would love to help my students build their skills and be able to make that project they have always wanted to try. We will start from the basics and build from there. I hope to hear from you soon. Have a great day!
