About Tamar
Hi families!

A bit of information about myself: I have been tutoring for over seven years and am very familiar with the public and private school systems in Manhattan. I teach everything from Algebra II to American History, specializing in organizational and study skills.

I am a Columbia University graduate. Graduated Phi Beta Kappa with a 3.97 GPA. I currently tutor full-time and also run a music education non-profit, Nvak.

I am meticulous, patient and loving. I invest 100% of my energy in making sure that the kids that I take on are getting the individualized attention they need and that they are becoming more independent and more confident each session.

Please feel free to contact me via the site to let me know, specifically, what the needs of your child are.

Warmly,
Tamar

Tamar is a wonderful, dynamic and enthousiastic teacher and my 12 year old daughter had a great time with her.
Tamar knows when to slow down if her student is tired, but is also demanding so as to be sure that progress are made.
It was a pleasure seeing how fast my daughter improved her English and we both appreciated meeting Tamar, who is a great person :)

TAMAR IS A GEM

Tamar is a gem!

I have been working with her for the past year and she has helped me completely transform my academic situation.

I am a freshman in high school who struggles with ADHD. Tamar's patience and diligence is completely unsurpassed. She goes above and beyond to ensure that I am not only doing my work, but she breaks down the material for me in such a way that it is easy to understand. Tamar puts in hours of her own time to create tests and study guides which has helped give me the extra advantage i need. I recommend her to anyone. She is by far one of the best tutors and individuals ever.

As this is basics of English for beginners i would start with English grammar the first topic would be "Noun". A noun is a name of a person,place,animal, or thing.It is classified into Singular(single/one} for example book, cup, chair etc and Plural {more than one} for eg books ,cups,chairs etc.for the plural of most nouns add 's'.There are many other rules to make plural like add es ,some nous have different plural forms, we learn all of them as the classes progress.

Prajakta is an amazing instructor. She sends you charts, walks you through them and helps you to pronunciate correctly along the way (in a way that YOU will understand). She makes the lessons fun and not too serious. She speaks english perfectly and therefore can apply Hindi in a context if your understanding. Best Hindi teacher ever. Highly recommend!

Detra has been such a blessing to our family. She came to our home to evaluate our 7-year old daughter who has struggled with reading. She had a great rapport with our daughter, made her feel comfortable and even have fun during the evaluation. She has a patient and positive demeanor and put our daughter at ease. She then spent over an hour with me (her mom), going over the results of the evaluation and recommending steps to work on. Since that time, she has answered my many questions, offering additional resources and encouragement. Looking forward to having her work more with our daughter. Highly recommend Detra!

Ms. Damskov showed amazing love and care for my child and her job. She enthusiastically learned as much as she could about each subject so that she could teach it back to my struggling 8 year old. She is a wonderful tutor and teacher that I would readily send any of my 4 children to. I have full confidence that any of Ms. Damskov's students will not only do well under her, but far excel any expectations.
Your student will develop a love of learning under Ms. Damskov's teaching.

M. Marie Roche conducted on the campus of U Mass eight seminars--open to all--on two of Shakespeare's history plays, King John and Richard II. Neither play is popular with modern Shakespeare-going audiences. But she accomplished the nearly impossible--making both plays compelling and relevant by her selection of background documents and themes. I hope that TakeLessons can provide an adequate platform for her level of sophistication.

About Isobel C.

I am an English born and educated creative writing, reading and ESL teacher. I teach English to grade school students, college students or adults who need need extra help improving their grades or learning the principals of good reading or writing.
Relaxed one on one tutoring is an excellent way to improve writing and reading skills and I make make my lessons fun and tailor them to each individual student's learning style. Large schoolroom classes make this challenging, so extra tutoring is very beneficial.
I have been tutoring students for more than 25 years and love what I do. Students can take 1-3 lessons a week in 30, 45 or 60 minute sessions.

About Isobel
Hi Students,
My name is Isobel and I am a writing instructor. I have published in England and was voted Poet Laureate of a city in California.
I was born and educated in England and love to write and read and help students who may find some of the lessons in school a little challenging. I can help you get onto the right path so you improve your skills and feel confident. We cover grammar, spelling, punctuation and creative writing and I try to make the learning process fun!
I would love to help you get good grades in writing and reading or, if you are an adult, just encourage you to enjoy writing well. I can guide you through memoir writing which is a very gratifying and wonderful experience as well as providing children, grandchildren and other family members with the story of your life!
I hope you will plan to take a lesson wi
th me soon!
Thank you, Isobel

All ages are welcome. I was an English major in college, before switching to Journalism. I then graduated with a Journalism degree and have continued working to become an expert in all things English. i.e. Writing and speaking. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. I will create a plan with you to visualize exactly where you want to be, and I promise we'll get you there together! I'm excited to work with you!

About Cassie
As someone who's grown up speaking English as my primary language, I have always been fluent. So you may be thinking, why is this girl any different than any other native speaker? From winning Young Authors' awards in elementary school to graduating from a Big Ten University with a Journalism degree (Concentration in Advertising, Marketing and Public Relations), I have been diving deeper into the language with every passing year including, but not limited to: essays, research papers, grammar, punctuation, advertising copy writing and marketing campaigns.

Whether you want to learn how to write better essays for school or you want to learn English as a Second Language, I want to help you achieve your goals! Let's create a plan together and have fun at the same time!
