I wasn't Tom's student per se but he and I went over lots of material for our various cover bands and he's a very thorough, patient teacher, very adamant about getting parts exactly right but willing to listen to occasional disagreements. highly recommended!

my experience

Tom really knows his way around a bass. Each time I go for a lesson, i leave happy about the things we've accomplished in the lesson. Anything that i would like to learn Tom makes it possible for me to do so. I started getting lessons in order to not slow down on my playing. With my schedule constantly changing Tom has been very nice at accommodating when possible.

About Anosh
I am currently a math major and I have finished math classes all the way to transformation geometry (proof-based). Currently, I'm enrolled in number theory. I have gotten mostly A's and B's in my math classes. I am able to help out students of any age up to Multivariable Calculus 2. I am also able to travel at most 15 miles out of my city (Rancho Cucamonga and San Bernardino) and am very patient when it comes to teaching math, as I understand it can be a difficult and frustrating subject.

Prof. Thiru. Helped me to know the concepts much better in precalclus. He would show me step by step how to solve the problems and I got much better at solving them. He was very patent despite the fact that I did not know very much going into his tutoring sessions. When I got out of his tutoring sessions I knew much more and felt more confident in my abilities. I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for help in precalclus.

I hired Paul last November to help my daughter, Kara, with her middle school NYSSMA audition. Paul assessed my daughter, asking her to play a song she already knew and took notes on what she was already good at and what to improve on. When Paul taught Kara her NYSSMA solo, he was very meticulous, paid much attention to Kara's playing, and taught her techniques on how to correct certain mistakes and methods on how to improve what was already good to make her stick out. On the date of her NYSSMA audition, she was very confident, got a perfect score, and made it into the All-County Band :).
I could not recommend Paul more. His experience and methods of teaching technique especially caught my eye, and is what differentiates him from other instructors. He is very patient, kind, honest, and sits down with you to set realistic expectations and goals and how to achieve them. I still book him today for my daughter who is now in High School and has even made All-State Bands because of Paul. He may be in college, but he has music wisdom way beyond his years!!

Thank you Paul for all you do,
Peggy Ghiraldi

I believe that a love of learning and a love of teaching go hand in hand. Teaching and tutoring allow me to help others develop that same love of learning that drives me in my studies. I find joy in showing students that intelligence is not fixed, helping them prove to themselves that they can improve their performance in any class with hard work.

The best tutors are people who love both the subjects they tutor and the feeling of helping someone succeed. I have always loved math and science, and part of my tutoring process is helping others to appreciate these topics as well. With words of encouragement and a non-judgmental attitude, I guide students toward a deeper understanding and better problem-solving strategies.

I prepare in advance for every lesson, regardless of the topic, to ensure that I am refreshed on the subject and to develop any materials I might use during the session (equation sheets, worksheets, etc.). I develop practice problems during math and science ...

About Allison
Hello! I have been tutoring for nine years, and I have a Master's degree in Astronomy & Astrophysics. I love teaching, and I make sure to incorporate real-life examples into my math and science problems to help people develop an appreciation of the subjects. When tutoring French, I add elements of culture that I have learned from my multiple trips to France (including an entire summer in Paris!) to make the language come alive. Book a lesson with me and see how I can help you achieve today!

Crochet lessons: I have been crocheting for 14 years, and I love to get creative with it! I make stuffed animals, blankets, and articles of clothing both from patterns and from my own imagination. Whether you've never held a crochet hook before or just want to learn some new skills to add to your repertoire, I would love to help you pursue crochet a
s a hobby (or even a business!).

Allison is VERY sweet, patient and thorough! I really enjoyed working with her. I learned SO much in just one hour!! I was hesitant about taking the lessons as I've tried lessons at my local Michael's store but didn't get much out of it. One on one with Allison was the right decision. If you are just thinking about it - DO IT!!! You won't regret it. I'm looking forward to next week's lesson with Allison :)

Math is excited...or at least I think so and so will you! Always focused on the "why" instead of just the "how", you'll gave a powerful, intuitive perspective into how to approach each problem/topic we work on together. If you think math is boring, difficult, mean, angry...., take a lesson with me. You'll find out why I love to solve math problem for fun. Pretty soon, I bet you will be doing the same too.....

About Josh
I'm a prize winning pianist and a math-guru. I started piano at age 5 and started winning competitions at age 10. I've won prizes at the local and national level. Ultimately though, I'm just passionate about all-things piano and would love to share my passion with you.

I enjoy teaching math because I actually struggled with math when I was in school. I always needed extra help, and I needed every step broken down and explained in detail. Because of all the extra work I put into my math studies, I grew to really enjoy teaching it! It is usually very easy for me to identify why a student might be struggling, because it is likely that I have overcome the same struggle. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing the “ah-ha!” look on a student’s face when everything finally starts to click.

I am new to the TakeLessons website, but the father of one of my students wrote this review on his own website: “Last year our daughter had a math teacher who was gifted at everything but teaching. The predicable result: a bad attitude, low test scores. We asked a friend about a math tutor. After hearing her rave about Elyse Laakso, we made no other calls. Elyse started with our unhappy child last October. By January, Wednesday afternoon sessions no longer ...

About Elyse
I graduated with honors from New York University, earning my BFA in theatre. I use my degree to pursue my career as an actress/singer, and I use my love of academics to tutor! In fact, I think my acting training gives me a bit of an advantage as a tutor. I love getting inside my students’ heads, so to speak. Everyone has different struggles and everyone learns differently, and I think I bring a unique perspective and skill level when it comes to understanding and adapting to the needs of each student.
