I️ was connected to Rod through a tutoring agency. I️ contacted the agency because I️ recently graduated college and wanted to get into grad school but had not taken a math class since the 10th grade. The school I️ was applying to needed a minimum math score for the GRE, which I️ knew would be a enormous stretch for me. Additionally, I️ always had trouble with math and knew I️ would need a tutor to re-teach me everything I️ needed to know to get the score I️ wanted. Initially, the agency connected me to 3 different tutors who were all absolutely terrible! Sometimes they didn’t even know how to answer sample questions in the workbooks! Finally, I was connected to Rod. After our first meeting I️ knew he would be the one who would help me improve. After a month of intense work with him my GRE math scores actually improved a full 12 points! Beyond that, he literally taught me math in a way in which I️ actually understood it. Before I️ just thought I couldn’t learn, but now I’m confident that I️ actually retained everything and it even made sense! I’m so grateful to have met Rod because before him I️ truly felt hopeless. I️ would definitely recommend Rod to anyone who is looking to drastically improve their math skills. If you’re like me and hate math, can’t grasp it, and even feel like you just can’t learn it, then definitely contact Rod now! You won’t be sorry!

I initially reached out to Rod for Algebra 1 review because I felt that my daughter lacked a solid foundation in algebra. However, after a couple of sessions, we have decided to switch gears toward geometry with Rod’s recommendation. Throughout the geometry lessons, algebra practice was incorporated. I am happy that not only did Rod tailor his lessons to my daughter’s goals but also he gave her a lot of encouragement. My daughter found it extremely helpful that she got to explain and discuss with Rod, which made lessons interactive and real learning. Now going back to school, my daughter feels confident, thanks to Rod!

I've helped students with the ACT for a number of years. There is a mindset to learning the "tricks" of this standardized test. I want students to recognize the patterns to the test questions so that they can know exactly how to answer them.

I have 12 years previous tutoring experience in a variety of subjects such as Algebra I, Algebra II English, SAT, ACT, MS Excel, MS Access, MS word, GRE, Geometry. Overall, I have been very academically successful myself. I enjoy helping students understand difficult concepts. I am also very pat

Joanne is extremely helpful and professional. She has been very thorough and patient when helping me to understand how to better utilize Excel to solve different problems and learn the software's functionality. I truly appreciate that even sometimes when she doesn't know the best way to tackle a problem, she'll go out of her way to figure it out after our lesson for me.

She is very patience with my daughter! Great!
Chloe
She said she couldn’t help me unless we were on zoom. No one told me this and I don’t know how to do zoom. So then she told me to connect to her on the computer and not my phone so I tried that. That didn’t work. So she looked at my screen and told me it was blurry. Then after all that we lost connection and she was unwilling to reschedule so I could actually get what I paid for which was help!!! All my other teachers on here have been good, but I can’t recommend jasmine as it was a complete waste of my money.

Online ACT Teacher

As a student preparing for college, I scored in the 99th percentile on the ACT.

I have over 5 years tutoring for ACT preparation. I have a vast amount of materials that aid in lessons and regularly review the exam, in order to stay current with any changes in the test format.

I will help your son or daughter achieve their score through a variety of techniques, tailored to their needs, that I have fine-tuned during my years of experience with this exam.

About Erin

I carry an enthusiasm for knowledge and "nerdy" subjects like mathematics and science! I believe in the power of positive reinforcement and aim to foster not only knowledge, but also confidence. Lessons are individualized for the student and tailored to their goals. I am passionate about education

Erin worked with my 9th grade daughter - very happy with her first lesson
Ann
My daughter was struggling with her virtual Physics 1 AP class, which is being taught in one semester rather than over a whole school year. Erin has really helped her get her head around the concepts and taken a lot of the frustration out of the class for her. Erin tailored my daughter's tutoring sessions so that she's getting the most out of the sessions. I highly recommend Erin!
Viviann
Not sure what happened, but Erin did not show up for the first PSAT tutoring session that we had scheduled for my daughter. I was unable to get in contact with her and was charged for the lesson. I ended up having to contact TakeLessons to get a reimbursement.

"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."

"We were given Matthews name from a friend that used him for her two sons ACT tests and were happy with the results. My daughter studied with him multiple times at a mutual site preparing for her ACT test. He would not only explain why she missed a problem on a practice test but then teach her so she understood the concept. He was very diligent, professional and thorough in his tutoring. My daughter went up 4 points on her ACT! Couldn’t be happier and HIGHLY recommend Matthew."
