I have taught over twenty English students from kindergarten through college graduates (research papers, policy analysis papers, etc.).

I build language arts skills in speaking, reading comprehension, listening and writing. I cover vocabulary, spelling, grammar, sentence structure, tenses, subject-verb agreement and punctuation, 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

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

This is a class for Russian speakers to learn English.
My very first student was Russian-speaking, to whom I taught English. I am fluent in both languages, and enjoy assisting others in their language learning process!
Contact me if you have any questions!

About Julia
Hi! My name is Julia A. I have been tutoring students of all ages and skill levels at learning centers, colleges, libraries and schools since 2008.

My instruction extends nationwide, with students from all corners of the US, utilizing online tutoring services such as Skype.

My main field of study is in MATH (trig, algebra, geometry, precalculus), CHEMISTRY (high school and college), and PHYSICS (high school and college).

I completed my Bachelors in Physics and Mathematics Education at Hunter University and have gained experience with both in-person and online group instruction and curriculum development.

Some examples of the students I have tutored are: Elementary school students preparing for State competitions and exams; High school and College students in preparance for entrance exams, and in subjects such as algebra, geom
etry, trig, precalc, chemistry and physics.

I do Regents and SAT/ACT prep for these subjects as well as the GRE (These are NYS based High School Preparatory Exams - do not hesitate to ask should you need assistance with the ones offered in your state/country).

In addition, I am thorough and meticulous, by paying special attention to how the student grasps information and retains it, I prepare individualized handwritten reviews, with supplemental material found online and in texts.

I assign homework to keep my students ahead of what is going on in class, and a visual and intuitive understanding of the concepts I present is important to me, so I use visual aids (diagrams and interactive models) to help my students integrate what they learn with me in real life situations.

My instruction includes:
1. Tutoring based on the school curriculum
2. Instruction on the home-schooling curriculum
3. Assisting those with a gap in going back to school/university.

I start with an assessment based on what the student has trouble with or last remembers covering in school, and prepare material going from there.

As a result, my students all have improved grades without any need for cramming before tests, and I encourage a stress-free and easygoing learning environment.

My lessons are fun and enthusiastic - these subjects are beautiful and will help open your mind to new ways of thinking - whatever your field of study!

Julia creates her own curriculum which is better than anything my daughters receive in their schools.
I see marked improvements in their grades for this past year, and my eldest is actually skipping fourth grade as a result of lessons. I am astounded as to my girls' progress, and greatly appreciative of our tutor's expertise.
Her patient, methodical approach to teaching is why I see us remaining with her for all of our educational instruction. She has already taught arithmetic to my youngest (3rd grade), and algebra to my eldest (starting 5th this sept!), and is proceeding with more advanced math with no issue whatsoever. I cannot recommend her enough.

I found Jean to be very engaging and helpful, she was always willing to explain errors to me until I was actually able to understand what I did wrong. She not only helped me address the problems I had with the SAT, but also any anxiety behind it. Now I feel calmer and more prepared to face the SAT!

Austin, TX

View Full Profile

English is my native language. I have lived in different countries, traveled international and learned different languages as well and would love to help teach others.

About Hilary
I am a professional singer in Austin Texas. I play live shows, I have gone on tour and have released an album. I love teaching people what I know. After singing behind closed doors for a portion of my life and secretly dreaming of being a singer, one day, I decided to take the plunge and start living my dream. I began writing music, playing live shows and training to teach voice. Shortly after, I started accepting students and helped them conquer their fears.

After I conquered my own fears of singing, the world of opportunity opened up for me. I filled the role of choir director for a local church and my music now plays on Pandora, Spotify and I-tunes! I love to share my knowledge as a singer and aspire to teach fellow singers everything I know as a vocalist.

I have been taking lessons with Hilary for a while, longer than a year. I dont have a natural gift, and got interested in singing later in life, but she has helped me gain confidence and comfort with my voice. She is very bubbly and friendly. For me, it helps to have a teacher that puts me at ease since I am shy. She has helped me with pitch and voices. She is helping me work on vocal runs. I have progressed enough to start writing my own songs. BTW, her singing is amazing and I am happy for the opportunity to work with her!

My many years living abroad (in Japan, Italy, and Germany) have afforded me the opportunity to teach English to many foreigners who wanted to improve their ability to speak the most popular language in the world. I am fluent in Italian, German, French, Spanish, and Japanese, so wherever you are from, I will be able to help you learn English -- and enjoy it!

About Luke
I am deeply passionate about sharing knowledge with others and have been lucky to be teaching my entire adult life. There are so many enriching experiences available to us when we learn more about the world.

Foreign languages are among my favorites, and I have specialized in teaching Latin, Italian, and Japanese. As a geologist, I am also profoundly interested in the sciences. When I teach I like to understand where my students are coming from, what really inspires them, and help them to enjoy and love what they want to learn. For me, learning is always fun, so whether you like to study or you are having trouble motivating yourself to concentrate, together we will discover the joy and fun in what you are studying.

Luke is an amazing teacher! He is very knowledgeable and very kind, which makes me feel at ease. He has been very patient with me and is always supportive of my aspirations for my future with language learning. He is fully equipped with any kind of resources needed for helping the language stick! Im never scared to ask him a question or feel dumb for asking, he is here to make sure I get the most out of what he has to teach and will take the time necessary to help me understand and feel confident in what I'm learning. I feel very lucky to have had the experience of meeting and learning from Luke!

As someone who needed to learn other languages, I can assist anyone whose native language is not English to become more proficient, or gain better conversational skills.

About Diane
Bonjour! Hello!
I have been teaching on and off for many years, usually on a one-to-one basis; I taught teenagers and adults. I tailor my lessons to each student's individual needs and I am always ready to go above and beyond the basic lesson. I try to make learning a language fun and alive, through news, stories, and songs.
My graduate educational background is in architecture, followed by an MBA in finance. My mother tongue is English; but I learned French at the age of nine when I attended my first French school. I have a French high school diploma (Baccalauréat) and architecture degree.
I also attended high school in Germany, in a German high school, for several years. Learning languages was a necessity in my childhood, and I love learning, even if by now it is more difficult to become fluent in a new language. I think the fact
of being a lifelong learner helps me better understand my students' needs.
As an avid reader since childhood, my spelling has always been excellent, and I worked as a proofreader. I look forward to helping my students reach their language goals.

In short, when you hire me as a tutor, you are not only hiring someone with professional experience teaching college-level English courses at three area universities, you are also hiring someone who works as a semi-professional writer (poetry, fiction), who has written and published six books. I have a master's degree in English, and I was also recently awarded an Akron Soul Train Fellowship, during which I wrote a poetry chapbook. Reading and writing are my passions, and I would love the opportunity to share my passions with you.

About Gabriel
Gabe Gott lives in Akron, Ohio, with his wife, Sarah, the unwitting caretakers of a home for retired house pets. He was the March 2018 Akron Soul Train Fellow, during which he wrote the upcoming poetry chapbook, Idiot Parade (out May 12, 2018, on Gott Press). Gabe has degrees in English from Kent State University and The University of Akron and has taught writing as a Tutor, Teaching Assistant, and Adjunct Professor at the University of Akron, Stark State College, and Notre Dame College. During the day, he works as a team lead/trainer for a market intelligence company based out of Chicago, but he is also a semi-professional writer of fiction and poetry. He has published a short story collection, Tales from the Fringes (2013), a novel, Escapes (2014), two flash fiction chapbooks, The Ever-Present Moment (2016) and Dispatches from the Info
rmation Age (2017), and a poetry collection, Live Organ Transplants (2017). His writing has appeared The Cult Magazine, Misplaced Identity, Literally Literary, The Devil Strip, Insomnia & Obsession, Red Fez, Flash Fiction Magazine and 50-to-1.
