About Daniel
My name is Daniel B. I have my A.A. Degree and I am currently a junior at Washington University in St. Louis. I am majoring both in Psychology and Biology with a strong emphasis on counseling, research and medicine.

Since its founding in 2006, I have been involved Neighbor to Neighbor Outreach (NTNO), a non-profit organization whose goal it is to insure that the children, youth, and adults of inner-city St. Louis are provided tutoring for every imaginable subject.

My teaching style is quite simple and effective. I initially gauge the student's level of understanding of the subject or skill that he/she wishes to master. I then create a comprehensive learning plan which pushes the student to his/her limits while making the learning process both enjoyable and rewarding.

If you find yourself in need of my assistance, just let me kn
ow. I am able to work around your schedule and I am available to be contacted anytime.

*** Lesson Details ***
Initial Lesson:

- Subject understanding is determined.
- Necessary areas of improvement are determined.
- Preferred and/or most efficient study style is determined.
- Goals are set.

Each lesson will vary according to the student. As far as music studies are concerned, we will begin by ensuring mastery of the basics such as note recognition, chords, and correct fingering.

For each subject, the pattern will be similar. We will work on the basics and then we will progress commensurately.

Daniel was the perfect tutor for my son's prep for the GED. He was patient, prepared to help with test taking skills along with the actual content of the tests, and made himself available on a very short notice. In addition, Daniel is just a nice, respectful person that was a pleasure to interact with. I can not say enough. Highly recommend him!

Palig is truly an exceptional teacher. It's evident that she genuinely cares that each of her students excel. She has a strong academic background from Wellesley College and has experience tutoring recently through private tutoring as well as through her experience at Huntington Tutoring and Learning Center, as well as through Mission Hill After School Program. Her experience in this field without a doubt distinguishes her from other tutors. I strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a tutor in these subject areas.

I've worked with Palig for several months now as part of Boston Junior Derby. She has been teaching our very introductory roller skating course.

She is incredibly patient with girls of all ages, and breaks down skater mechanics in a very clear and concise way. The kids love her and tell all of the other coaches all the time that she's their favorite. #nottakingitpersonally

We're so excited to have her as a coach in the Spring!

Parents, students, I can help with that math problem!

I've helped dozens of students overcome every sort of math roadblock. All too often, a confusing lesson has gone unresolved, leading to heaps of bewilderment and frustration. Think of it like a tangle in a rope that only gets more knotted as you struggled to unravel it. Relax. I've got this.

We go back to the original knot, unravel it together, then coil everything back up cleanly. Sometimes it takes a few sessions, more often longer.

I tailor every session to each student, using methods they can relate to. Your student likes video games? Many have a built in key to understanding negative numbers. Simple, fun card games are my go-to choice for fractions and other math monsters.

I provide plenty of patience, clear, consistent guidelines, and positive coaching. No one needs to struggle in math. As long as your student wants to learn, you will see improvement with my help!

About Jon
I have taught professionally for 18 years, nine as a tutor. What began as undergraduate work-study bloomed into part time private tutoring independently, with great success. From elementary arithmetic to trigonometry, I've helped many an overwhelmed student raise their GPA!

I hold a BA with honors from CSUSB, with an English concentration. I was personally requested by my linguistics teacher for peer tutoring. My one-on-one experience has been predominantly in math and English, though I am open to other subjects because...

My teaching has taken me from museum galleries to working farms, and mountain trails to public schools. Whether I hold feldspar by a stream, a paint brush in a school room, or a salamander in an animal gallery, I see people learning best when they smile as they go. I make it a point to see that both occur. My sess
ions are always a safe, supportive environment in which mistakes are an essential, acceptable part of learning.

I learn because I love to, I teach because I'm good at it, and I tutor because it creates the greatest opportunity for success. The true payoff for me is helping my students realize they can achieve what they didn't think they could. I love that!

My daughter always had a great deal of trouble with math at all levels - arithmetic, Algebra, and Geometry. Jon tutored my daughter for several years, in our home, in Arithmetic, Algebra I and II, and Geometry. He definitely shares responsibility for her graduation from Beaumont High School with a class rank of 7th out of about 575 fellow students. Jon is very flexible in his teaching, and excels at figuring out what aspect of math is causing confusion for the student. He is very patient, and is able to rephrase and express concepts in different ways to get the point across. Fantastic tutor!

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!

Jamaica Plain, MA

As someone who struggled with many aspects of math throughout school and then went on to be a 3.8 GPA mathematics major in college, I am a strong believer that anyone can do math with the right teaching style and some faith in themselves. When tutoring math, I find it important to break down each aspect of a problem and explain it in a way that makes sense to the individual student. I am comfortable teaching any math student in elementary or middle school, and I will teach high school students up through Pre-Calculus.

About Hannah
I am a woman of many hats, as you can most likely see by the subjects in which I offer lessons! I am a recent graduate of Simpson College, a small liberal arts school in the Midwest, with a double major in Vocal Performance and Mathematics. I am also a graduate of the International Baccalaureate program in high school, making me a strong writer and communicator. I am currently attending the Boston Conservatory for my Master's of Vocal Performance and I specialize in opera.

My goal is to always give you the most personalized experience possible! Whether it's a voice lesson or a math tutoring session, I cater the entire time to your exact needs and work outside our sessions to make sure I come in as prepared as possible to give you the exact experience you want.

I would love to talk to you in more detail about any of my areas of expe
rtise! Please feel free to get ahold of me and we can discuss what will best help you achieve your goals.

Hannah was the music director at the Scotch Ridge Presbyterian Church in Carlisle, Iowa for the past three years, and was a wonderful addition to our congregation! I serve as the pastor of that church, and was always impressed with Hannah's ability to help not only plan the music for worship - this include weekly hymn selections - but also her incredible singing voice and vocal range. She will be missed dearly, and I do not hesitate in the least to recommend her expertise and skills in teaching.

As a Math teacher, I believe that an important part of the teacher role is to conduct each student's learning progress and support it. I also believe that interpersonal interaction, exploration and enjoyment should be an important part of the learning process, so my lessons usually progresses through student research, conversations, and achieving new knowledge by using their existing knowledge.

About Adina
This days I am working as a teacher in an after school program in Brookline. I have recently finished all of the requirements for my second BA in Mathematics education and teaching certificate . My first degree is in Industrial Engineering and Management.
After working for several years in the industry as an information system analyst I decided to combine my knowledge of Math and Engineering with my passion for teaching and working with children and completed a unique education certification program for graduates called “Mabatim” which includes a second BA in Education and a teacher certification. My teaching experience includes student teaching of Mathematics at the middle school and high school level and two years of working as a teacher working with new immigrants and children from disadvantaged backgrounds between the first and six

I'm an independent, MIT- and Harvard-trained tutor with a decade of experience.

About Matt
I'm a professional, independent, highly experienced private teacher. I specialize in high-level academic tutoring and rigorous test preparation for high school, college, and graduate students.

I studied math, literature, and philosophy at MIT and Harvard, and I have a decade of professional teaching, tutoring, and mentoring experience in the Boston metro area -- and around the world by Skype. I've always been interested in both the sciences and the humanities, and I love sharing my passion for ideas. On the science side, I've worked in labs at NASA, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, the McGovern Insitute for Brain Research, and MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. And on the humanities side, I was an editor at a political and literary magazine for four years; I've also edited three books published by MIT
Press and co-edited a chapbook of poetry including work by the former U.S. Poet Laureate. When I'm not teaching, I'm probably reading, writing, running, or thinking about teaching.

My philosophy is simple: I teach the way I would want to be taught. No matter the subject, my goal is to help students achieve deep mastery and long-lasting understanding, not just better grades and test scores. I emphasize critical and creative thinking, never rote memorization or mechanical rule-following. I focus on big-picture ideas and precise reasoning -- not just the what or the how but the why.

My profile here at TakeLessons is new, but I have more than 60 student testimonials. I'm happy to put prospective clients in touch with former students.

"A rare gem.”
Matt is a rare gem in the tutoring world. He has an amazing style of teaching. He really goes in depth. My 11th grader son has a lot of respect for him. According to my son, "Matt is a genius". His logic and teaching style makes him stand out. Matt is not only great in mathematics, he is absolutely fantastic in english, reading, and writing. He loves to breakdown complex problems for his students to understand and also expects his students to ask him questions. Matt has helped my son in calculus, reading, and writing and my son has benefitted and enjoyed the lessons to the fullest. One thing that impressed me the most was that he does not need the answer keys to verify correct answers. He trusts his own reasoning in his explanations. But, there is one problem: once you hire him as a tutor, its hard to find another of equal caliber. Thanks to Matt, our son got into Cornell.

I never believed in tutoring, with the plethora of resources available online. But when I decided to test out of
a pre-calculus course in my sophomore year and take AP Calculus BC instead, my mother thought of finding
some help for me. After struggling for months to find a good tutor, she found Matt online, and his
biography looked impressive. In our first meet, Matt’s questions were very engaging and thought-provoking
and I realized, “This guy is a genius.”
Matt has helped me with math, reading, writing, and my college applications. He has also mentioned,
“Although I am not a physicist, I can read and explain AP Physics C if needed.” Matt is a master in logic and
his confidence is unmistakable. Matt’s lessons were always profound and enjoyable, which made me
confident with high school subjects like probability and statistics, calculus; as well as college-level courses
such as multivariate calculus, linear algebra, and differential equations. Thanks to his help, I was both
accepted to Cornell University's College of Engineering and wait-listed to Harvard University!
Matt has been helping me in all aspects of academic decisions and progresses. Matt isn’t just a tutor: he is a
mentor, counselor, and guide. My mother says that Matt is smart and a great teacher in developing talent in
students.

During high school, I was given the title "Teacher Brie" because of the energetic and cheesy way I taught the information.

Much of my tutoring experience stems from helping my classmates understand information. When taking AP Calculus, my teacher left for half the year on maternity leave. With the lack of an actual math substitute teacher, I essentially taught the class and lead myself, and my classmates, to all A's and B's.

After graduating, I began officially tutoring younger students in pre-algebra, algebra, trigonometry, pre-calculus and calculus. I am currently working with a high school student on Algebra 2 and an elementary school student.

About Clarissa
I'm 20 years old and I've worked in a luxury cafe that serves to children of all ages, selling quality chocolates and ice cream. (To be completely honest, that was my dream job since I was a little girl.) The reason why I worked here was because I was unsure of what to study after highschool and I didn't wish to waste my parents money. After 2 years of fun in the chocolate shop, I've decided to move to America to live with my family. I'm currently waiting for my courses to start for the semester, so I have free time on my hands! <3 I love to be around children and teach them. Since I was in middle school girl, I helped my siblings when they needed assistance in their homework and thought them what they needed to if they didnt understand what the teacher said in school.

I hope I can help your child/sibling just as much as I helped my belo
