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

Please note: I have set up my billing in thirty minute increments. Thus, I am able to offer lessons of varying lengths. However, I would appreciate longer sessions. I thank you for your time and consideration and look forward to being at your service!

My subjects include:
ACT, SAT, PSAT, NMSQT - undergraduate admissions
GMAT, GRE - graduate admissions
ISEE, HSPT, SSAT, TACHS, COOP - high school admissions

After speaking to multiple tutoring companies, we discovered Matthew. Matthew was very professional and made my son feel comfortable. They had a total of 5 tutoring sessions covering Math, English, Science and Reading. My son took the ACT after his tutoring sessions and scored a 23. We were very pleased with the progress our son made by going from an ACT score of 19 to 23 after only 5 sessions with Matthew. I would highly recommend Matthew J. Horwich to anyone needing tutoring.

Matthew explained his approach to coaching and the plan so we were able to make an educated choice on the best tutor for our son. Matthew was responsive, organized and worked very well with our son. He communicated directly with our son and cc:ed me so that I was aware of the plan and f/u. His scores did improve on the SAT and we were pleased with the investment.

Matt has been awesome for my student. His math skills have improved greatly, and his  writing has come from illegible to what can now be described as neat and readable.  Matt has been very patient and deliberate with our son and has taken the time to really  explain things to Jake in a way he can understand. We would recommend this tutor to  any parent looking for a tutor for their grammar school student! Matt is also reliable and  prompt and showed up when expected which was helpful with our very busy schedules.

About Jason

Hello, my name is Jason. I began tutoring at Windward Community College while taking classes towards a bachelor's degree in information and computer science.

I can help with:

* C
* HTML/CSS
* Java
* JavaScript & TypeScript
* PHP
* Python

My specialty is in Web programming.

My experience started in helping iCan program participants master entry level mathematics and language arts. I also helped many students pursuing degrees in either computer science or engineering with programming and networking courses. I am now employed in the IT industry and teach what I've learned to others in the community.

I exercise patience and try to be easy going. Sessions are relaxed and productive. I understand technical material can be challenging and I try to explain things simply and clearly and I welcome questions. I look forward to he

lping you reach your goals.

I had such a good experience with Jason. He is very friendly, efficient and patient, which is essential when you learn JavaScript! We even went way over what I initially wanted to learn; he is very experienced and has impressive knowledge in front and back-end development. I have been trying to learn JavaScript by myself for a while but always ended up abandoning. I am confident that I will achieve my goals with the help of Jason. I strongly recommend learning with him! It will also be a good time!

About Ulyana

My name is Ulyana and I'm passionate about teaching and tutoring! I graduated with a B.S. from Rice University (Houston, TX), specializing in earth sciences (geology and chemistry). I did my Masters in planetary geology at Brown University (Providence, RI), and for my PhD, I trekked over 1500 miles in Nepal, studying glacial lake flooding hazards to Sherpa villages, as well as impacts of pollution on pristine high mountains, including Mt. Everest.

For seven years now, I have either tutored or taught, in classrooms and in the field, all age groups, sharing the joy of science, math - and learning in general! When I was in my teens, I participated in many science fairs and symposia at the national and international level. Then I went to college and grad school in science. Pretty much, science has been my life! For any of your science need

s, with a special focus on astronomy and geology (earth sciences), I'm here to help. I can assist with physics, biology, chemistry and math (algebra, pre-calc, calculus). Given my experience in public speaking, the Microsoft Office suite (Excel, Powerpoint, Word) and writing, I can assist with that as well!

If you're interested in creative lessons - with a true focus on your learning experience, I'm your tutor! Often times when working out in the field in extreme locations (e.g., Antarctica and Mt. Everest), I have to MacGyver solutions on the fly. I want to teach you how to think. This skill will serve you well, long into the future.

About Casey

Hey you! I know programming can seem really difficult or scary, I was there too not so long ago. It doesn’t have to be if you are willing and able to ask for help and, YOU are here so YOU are able to break down those mental barriers. We all can understand most concepts if they are broken down for us enough that we can follow the process at hand!

During our sessions together, we will use my palm-sized-globe (PSG) strategy to learn each new concept. With this strategy, any aspect that isn't crystal clear to you, we will stop, and I encourage you to stop me at any time, rotate the globe, and I will offer you an explanation of the concept from another perspective.

Whether you want to improve your coding skills, learn how to automate processes, get into a coding bootcamp, deal with large data sets, create websites to build up your portfolio

, or ace your classes, I will be there to help you succeed.

My objectives are focused on you, your education, your future and your career and because I take that very seriously, I prefer to give you a free consultation (up to 30 min) to help you decide if we are going to be the right fit for each other. I am truly excited to speak with you and can’t wait to get started working with you to achieve your goals!

Casey is extremely knowledgeable, personable, and able to break down concepts into easy-to-understand language. In addition to teaching the general steps to writing code, he is able to present real-world applications in a wide variety of scientific disciplines for each example.

I highly recommend Casey for teaching Python, and programming in general.

About Maxwell

Hello!

My name is Maxwell Nelson a passionate web developer and teacher of all things tech. I started my web development journey while working security and taught myself Java and Ruby - from there I jumped to JavaScript and have been using it ever since. I have 6+ years in the industry working for large multi-billion dollar tech consultancy firms to tiny tech startups consisting of 5 or less employees. I have taught web development to friends and worked for a bootcamp teaching students the basics all the way to advanced web development. It is my belief everyone should learn to code as it comes with fantastic benefits and ensures outstanding success in their future. I have experience building websites, web applications and mobile development all using JavaScript associated frameworks and libraries such as Angular and React. These lessons

are specifically designed for the student and I change the teaching style on a case-by-case basis, it is absolutely necessary to merge the experiences of the student into the curriculum and translate those experiences into code with examples.

About Daniel

I am a web developer that focuses on python. I have graduated from UC Santa Cruz with a B.A. in Computer Science. I have continued to expand my knowledge through online courses and python projects.

I have been a private tutor since 2013. I have a great amount of experience working with a wide variety of students. This makes it simple for me to properly adapt my teaching methods to best fit the student.

I have also been a coding instructor in iDTech for 2 summers, working with students to create a product based on the topic of their choice. The classes range from 3 to 10 students. This range gave me the experience needed to understand and amplify the multiple perspectives a student can have while coding.

An example project I have recently made is a python file that recommends which month it is best to invest in a particular stock. This

program takes in the inputs of stock_sticker, years_in_length, percentage, and increase/decrease and uses them to properly show how many times each month has gone up/ down that percentage.

I currently am continuing my studies as I always will be. I am also working on creating different websites through django to enhance my full stack web development experience.
