I have helped dozens of students over the last five years improve their SAT scores dramatically. There are clear types of questions the math section of the SAT repeatedly asks. The first step to mastering the test is to know how to do each type, the next and most often neglected step is to know how to do each type with ease and the last step is to be able to quickly recognize each type and apply the techniques necessary for solving them. My method for achieving this is to explain the concepts multiple ways to find the one that makes most sense to the student. Then I have students repeatedly do each type until they become commonplace. Last, I have them do as many practice tests as possible so they learn to apply the concepts utilizing time management. By repeating each question type rather than doing one and moving one I ensure that the concept sticks in the student's mind. By repeatedly taking practice tests students earn the confidence they need on testing day to perform their best.

Best experience! My son who is on 6th grade had to take the SSAT in a short period of time and Chris got him engaged from the first class, not easy for an online class. He was easy to communicate and was open to work with our schedule. Thanks for all the work you did!

Great Algebra tutor! Chris was tutoring my daughter in algebra. He picked up very quickly to see where her weakness is. He is very patient and takes his time in making sure my daughter gets it done. Excellent tutor.

Ra is so great. She is patient and really knows her stuff. Definitely flexible in scheduling and she is so great with teaching my daughter.
Arianna L.
I elected to choose an online Spanish teacher for my daughter Arianna who is nine years old - after unsuccessful locating a local Spanish speaking class/teacher. Haven't had any experience with online teachers, I asked Take Lessons to recommend a Spanish native speaker from Puerto Rico. I needed to find someone who understands and is very familiar with the pronunciation of the Latin dialect. Ra's focus is conversational language; however, she was more than willing to take on the challenge of starting from the beginning with the basics, such as the alphabet, number, months, etc. and building into conversational sentences with Arianna. She is extremely easy to interact with, soft-spoken, and processes a genuine love of teaching. My daughter looks forward to their weekly meetings while embracing her Latin roots. We are immensely pleased with Ra. We would highly recommend her without reservation. Sincerely, The Lopez Family
Luke
Ra is great!

Public speaking is a learned skill, and yes, you can make a living at it. I spent 6 years on contract with Chrysler doing press releases, new productions launches and concept vehicle presentations. I've also spoken for The American Beauty Association, Comdex, GlaxoSmithKline to name a few.

Professional theatre training and performance, in London, NYC and now Los Angeles, gave me an excellent base and skill set, but where my skills were really honed was at large conferences, on the stage, and often on the road, in front of hundreds or thousands of people.

This is where I learned the nuances of things like microphone technique, managing nerves, reading a crowd and keeping them engaged, working the stage and memorizing large bodies of text, that is often times technical and unnatural.

With 10 years of vocal training, including accents, languages and regionally specific dialects, coaching in this area comes easily and has become a passion! Language, accents, and speaking are all

About Hunter

I love to help new performers and people looking to break into the biz, as well as seasoned actors who want to up-level their career or deepen their craft. I have been coaching actors since 2008 and have a unique combination of experience and training to help you launch your career and create work

We met on twice weekly basis and his constant encouragement, wisdom, and supplemental resources helped me to get the grade I was striving for! He went above and beyond to help me survive Trig and I can't thank him enough. I would recommend him in a heartbeat. You'll be in very good hands!"

"Awesome tutor! Breaks down concepts to make it easily digestible and works with your schedule. He gives you great tips that you can't learn from a book. He is very laid back and that helps with the crazy chaos of MCAT studying. Overall, well rounded in the subjects of the MCAT and would work with him again in the future if I needed. I would defintely recommend him for future MCAT test takers."

He is really dedicated as a teacher and he doesn't let the student give up. He encourages the student to put their maximum potential. He also creates such an atmosphere where the student enjoys problem-solving. I have gone from failing to achieving decent grades."

My daughters ability and confidence rose significantly over the past month, partially due to understanding what’s required and knowing what’s on the Common Core Standards.

"I hired Daniel to help my daughter prepare for an assessment test. They only had 2 months to prepare and many of the subjects were being introduced to her for the first time. He had his work cut out for him. But he did a phenomenal job. He methodically organized each subject and proceeded to cover it thoroughly before moving on to the next. He had the right balance of persistence and understanding to keep my daughter stay focused and, at the same time, build up her confidence. I'm happy to report that she ended up passing the exam and she credits him for this result."
