Writing, whether it is creative or for essays and/or research, has structure to it - We will discuss the structure of what writing needs to be done, as well as the best way to go about doing it.

About Larry
***My Takelessons Blog Posts:***
http://takelessons.com/blog/acting-in-famous-Shakespeare-plays
http://takelessons.com/blog/how-to-have-stage-presence

My name is Larry, and I was born and raised in Chicago and now call the Phoenix, AZ metro area home. I have a Master's Degree in Education (Higher Ed. and Curriculum Development). I have a Tutoring and Educational Consulting business of my own, working with excellent education partners like Takelessons.

My tutoring business is geared towards middle, high school,and college students, and my specialization is geared in four areas:

1) The Humanities: History (U.S., European, and World), English, Literature (with a special passion for all things Shakespeare), and Social Studies (including American Government and Political Science).

2) Papers: Research papers (and how to do the
research for them), essays, creative writing - including citation & formatting.

3) Drama (the Theatre kind of drama, not life drama): Acting, directing, staging, analysis, including Shakespeare.

4) Test Prep: ACT, SAT, PSAT, ISEE, TACHS

***My Promise to You***

I will treat you like an individual - that means that we'll find out how YOU learn best, and we'll work that way. I don't teach memorization. I teach by asking and answering questions, as well as providing information.

***My Expectation of You***

That you will come with an open mind, come with questions, and a willingness to learn and have fun.

***Lesson Details***

*The Humanities*
The reason so many people go screaming into the night when confronted with lessons in things like history, or government, or English for that matter, are all the names and dates to memorize. I don't teach that way. We begin with things you want (or need) to know. From there, we cover how those things affected other things, It's a huge world out there, and how we got here from where we started is a wonderful and complicated trip. History doesn't happen in a vacuum, and we learn who we are by knowing where we come from.

*Papers*
Obviously I won't write your paper for you, but I will show you how and where to start your research (and how to sort it as well). I will also proof-read for grammar and/or organizational errors and show you how to structure it in general terms.

*Drama*
I have acted, I have directed. From the community to professional levels. We will talk about character creation, about staging, about working with your director as well as your fellow actors. We will mostly brainstorm, and you will be able to experiment in vision as well as technique.

A free-writer!

About Brandon
Please contact me before making a payment! Ever since I started my studies in the United States, 5 years ago, I have been captivated by the educational system. Initially, I tutored high school students as a tool to better practice my communication skills with the English language. I continued this tutoring path by aiding other college students on a 1-to-1 basis and more recently as part of an online experience. Math is my biggest passion, ever since I discovered its full depth. While many ask themselves "how will this equation be useful in my life?" I always ask myself "how can I make this equation meaningful in my life."

About Vivek V.

Saratoga, CA

View Full Profile

As a writing tutor in college and an avid writer myself, I have experience tutoring students with works ranging from college essays and applications to speeches and scientific papers. I also regularly tutor elementary to high school level students in the various stages of writing from essay types to persuasive writing to research papers.

About Vivek
I am a graduate from the University of Rochester with a B.S in Neuroscience and the former president of a student run global health non-profit. My passion for teaching was founded by my own experience as a student. Throughout my academic career, the challenges I encountered refined my own approach to understanding subjects, and the ensuing success after overcoming such obstacles brought me further love for learning and those subjects. I want to transmit that feeling of accomplishment to students as they master their own subjects, and hopefully foster a passion for further learning and success in any of their other endeavors. As a top student in both high school, and scholarship recipient in college, I know the effort and dedication required to be successful, and the impact a good teacher and support system can have on a student.

Having
served as a tutor for speech and writing in college, I enjoy and thrive in tutoring English, Literature, Writing, Communication and Debate. I have honed my writing abilities and understanding to help many students on writing college application essays, even tailored for particular schools. As a neuroscience student, having taken numerous science courses in a university setting and performed well in them, I understand many of the common difficulties students face when grappling with the concepts and problems presented to them. I have used my own experience as a teaching instructor for the Department of Biology to hone my teaching abilities and help students master formerly challenging material. Ultimately, the skills I acquired throughout this process of teaching and learning have improved my own understanding and grasp on the sciences, and I pass on these acquired traits to my students as I instruct them in the various sciences.

For many students, standardized tests are the biggest challenges to obtaining college admission, earning scholarships, or placing into selective programs. As someone who self-taught and experimented his way through taking these exams and scoring well, I take students through the whole approach to exams like the SAT by breaking down each section to manageable parts and finding the most efficient and easy ways to answer questions. Through helping students individually leverage their strengths and destroy weaknesses in facing these exams, I am confident that they will have conquered yet another obstacle on the path to their goals.

I look forward to hearing from you. All the best!

I am a professional writer and marketing specialist with a background in journalism. Whether it's writing copy for an ad at work, telling someone's story, or even reviewing the latest local play or musical, writing is part of my daily life.

I can help you learn:
How to determine your audience

With me, you can become better at academic essays, creative stories, ad copy, and everything in between.

About Jackie
I am a professional writer and marketing professional with over 5 years of experience.

It took me many, many years to feel comfortable considering myself a writer, so I am intimately familiar with the uncertainty that can come with the craft. As a professional theatre critic, storyteller, and copywriter, students can expect to learn a wide array of writing techniques and formats with me.

But perhaps most importantly, they will learn how to speak concisely and eloquently to a given prompt, and deliver a polished and excellent piece of writing.

Amanda is excellent and the instruction has been very enjoyable. She adapted to my learning style and found a way to teach that was suitable for me, based on my personal experience and background. She is also flexible, both in terms of time and subject matter so you can be sure to focus on exactly what you need at the moment. Although my schedule in New York was busy, I was looking forward to the lesson each day because it’s interesting and she is very well prepared. She is also a very nice person and I think the lessons are great for every English language learner.
