I have taught over twenty students from kindergarten through college graduates and foreign students. My teaching covers all language arts skills including casual writing, essays, formal writing, research papers, as well as vocabulary, spelling, sentence structure, subject-verb agreement, etc.

Let me show you how successful you or your child can be!

About Matthew
Dear Parents and Students,

May I be a personal tutor for you or your child? I have been successfully tutoring for over 12 years. I have great references, and I am one of the top tutors because I am so easy to work with. I teach in person, or via TakeLessons classroom, telephone, Skype, FaceTime, Google Hangouts, Join.me, Appear.in, Screenhero (remote desktop, screen sharing) interactive whiteboards, as well as email attachments (PDF, Word, Excel, etc.) I graduated with honors, Summa Cum Laude from Case Western Reserve University, where I made the Dean's List. I also earned a Provost Academic Scholarship for my excellent test scores, including 34 in ACT mathematics and 780 in SAT mathematics.

In addition to teaching for Cleveland schools, I currently teach 20 private sessions each week, 1st through 12th grade, as well as college stud
ents and business professionals. I have also served on the faculty at Cuyahoga Community College.

I am patient, friendly and many students tell me that I explain concepts more effectively than their teachers. I am available weekdays or weekends, days or nights, throughout the entire year. I would be happy to answer any questions you might have regarding my experience and teaching methods. While it should go without saying, I have a clean background that has been verified by the FBI and BCII. Let me know if you would like to set up an introductory lesson to design a customized strategy. There is no obligation to continue unless a customer is 100% satisfied.

I am one of the Top Five Tutors for:
1. most diverse subject matter
2. widest student age range
3. farthest geographical regions
4. largest client base
5. most hours taught monthly

As you can see I’ve written a review for Matthew regarding my daughters success (her test was last year) so I’d like to write one for my son also. My son was not driving at the time and Matthew agreed to drive to our home and teach him for an additional nominal fee. My son also took multiple tutoring sessions with Matthew and learned something new every time. He felt confident going into the test, confident in his ability to complete the exam and do well on it. Matthew takes his time with each individual and works with their specific needs. My children needed help in different areas of the ACT and Matthew was more than capable of helping them in those areas. My sons ACT score also went up 4 points after working with Matthew! I can’t say enough how professional, kind and thorough he is.

I've been writing for many years, often professionally in a variety of different roles. No matter what you need, I can help you to find a way to say it better, more efficiently, or with greater poetry.

I worked as a professional Writing Tutor at the University of Southern California.

About Paul
While attending the University of Southern California, where I received my M.F.A., I worked as a writing tutor in the USC Writing Center and also taught Classical Greek Mythology. After graduation, I taught Verbal, Writing and Literature SAT classes and worked as a private tutor in a variety of subjects.

I later taught for five years at the New York Film Academy in Universal City, CA, where I taught a variety of Critical Studies classes to various levels of students, some in certificate programs and others working towards their M.F.A.

As a former English and Spanish double major, I have always enjoyed teaching at various levels. Most of my other work these days involves the writing and editing of short stories, screenplays and novels.

You’ll find that I have the education, background and experience to be an excellent instruct
or for your needs.

Paul was my favorite teacher at the New York Film Academy.
Unlike most of the teachers, Mr. Paul put a lot of effort and creativity into planning his classes, which made them both stimulating and fun for us.
I also loved the fact that Mr. Paul always respected our opinions, and never made us feel stupid when we didn’t understand something. He was always very encouraging and willing to keep explaining until we got it.

I highly recommend him to anyone interested in extra lessons. He is definitely worth it!

Quick note on my passion for learning as a way of life ~

As a passionate lifelong learner, researcher, educator, tutor and coach, I embrace an unbounded curiosity of wonder and never ending exploration of an interdisciplinary approach to the scientific methods of learning, and acquiring knowledge that extend far beyond my university studies, into living my life highly engaged in as much experiential (first person) learning as possible. I love asking fresh, invigorating, boldly curious, audaciously barrier-busting, status-qua daring questions, as I feel passionately that, as Dr. Albert Einstein shared, "The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity."

US (German-born) physicist (1879 - 1955)

My approach to teaching writing begins with learning where the student is currently at ability wise, then taking the time to build a custom lesson plan that will cater to strengthening current weaknesses while not being boring or generic.

About Leo
Hello! I'm Leo, and I will be your prospective tutor for today. I am a New School alum in the literary studies program, with a specialization in fiction writing. Most of my teaching experience stems from a martial arts background (specifically taekwondo, Muay Thai and Brazilian jiu jitsu) , where I taught students ranging from 4-60 years old. I also have experience teaching people how to type, how to improve their reading and writing skills, stage presence, public speaking, self defense, and physical health. I look forward to meeting all of you while helping with whatever you need help with.

Torrington, CT

Together with supplementary books, materials, and free-association, I guide the student through his or her own mental process to facilitate the expression of an idea; concept or theses. In addition to assigning homework or improvements for the student to work on his/her own piece offline, I help him/her revisit the manuscript with fresh eyes and rework the draft into a presentable, well reasoned document. In the case of a scholarly work, I help with the appropriate form for citations and asterisks. Lessons of one hour to 90 minutes in length are recommended.

About Tamari
Hi, there! My name is Tamar; I'm called Tamari, informally, and Tamara for the stage, and I can't wait to meet you!

I've been teaching private lessons for many, many years and have loved helping my students acquire new skills, master new pieces, and prepare for concerts and performances. Over the years, my younger students have earned Blue and Gold ratings at the Young Musicians' Festival in Fairfield U., some of them earning gold cups: This is a statewide event to encourage long-term commitment to the art, discipline and joy of music making.
I went to Indiana University's Jacob School of Music and earned a Masters in Piano Performance, and Composition in the '90's. I sang all types of vocal music as well as prepared singers with vocal coaching and voice development techniques 20+ years.
I'm fun loving, patient, and optimistic-
- these traits carry through in my teaching style,
One Size does NOT fit all--I approach the lesson plans for each student tailored to your learning style.
Over the past 23 years, my life experiences have encompassed other disciplines and compelled me to learn and acquire many other skills: my liberal arts as well as fine arts education lent itself to helping me work administrative jobs and even expanded into sales and public speaking. I have coached after school and SAT preparation to High School and College age students, helped with the preparation of legal and analytical documents, creative writing and editing assignments; and even tutored computer, social media and Microsoft Office & iWork Suite of applications to older adults.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals

Kalamazoo, MI

My college degree was writing intensive. I had to write several research papers and even wrote to graduating theses. Since then, I have published an article in a national academic journal. Essays are more than words, the ability to present arguments and clearly convey them are foundational to successful writing. I would help the student learn methods of creating topic ideas, organizing thoughts, and explaining concepts. Once the essay is written, the follow up lessons would involve sentence clarity and word brevity.

About Maria
I, Maria J., graduated Summa Cum Laude with Honors College distinction from the University of South Florida, in 2014. I have seven years’ worth of tutoring experience. I have tutored students, at differing abilities and intensities, in Algebra, English, and Latin. I view learning as an accumulative experience. In my sessions, I would have two goals: one, to explain concepts and, two, to provide moments for the students to use this acquired knowledge. I believe that variability in information presentation is important to the overall success of learning. Therefore, I use various methods to convey the same information. My second goal follows closely: I would offer opportunities for students to use what they have learned. Giving them occasion to find the answer before I intercede, helps students realize where their strengths and shortcomings
are. Through a careful balance of teaching and homework, the student’s ability will increase.

My breadth of writing style ranges from poems and short stories, to graduate level academic work in philosophy. My poetical side is attuned to creative potential and self-expression, while my academic performance demonstrates a mastery of formal arguments and presentations (I received a perfect writing score on the GREs). So whether someone is looking to explore writing for the joy of words alone, or looking to prepare for standardized tests and academic expectations, I can guide any student towards the achievement of their personal goals.

About Keli
Hello! My name is Keli, and I am a music/writing instructor. I currently perform as a drummer around the Philly music scene - my most noteworthy venue to date being World Cafe Live. I am also a percussionist in the South Jersy Pops Orchestra. My day job is in academia as a master's student in philosophy at Temple University. There my focus is on music theory and time consciousness (and believe me, I have a lot of fun working in that field). I also like to write poems and little short stories on the side. Music and writing add so much to my life, and I love sharing that joy of music/writing with my students. I hope I may be of service!
