In my time of need (I had a B- average), I was fortunate enough to receive Varna's tutoring support. Varna is clear ("Do this"), firm ("Don't do that") , AND exceptionally kind ("You can do this!") in her approach. Thanks to Varna, I was able to get an A+ in both Calculus 1 and Calculus 2. You are the best Varna, thank you!!!

Got an A!!!

I'm usually a horrible mathematics student but this semester I was taking calculus which is daunting on its own even for students who have been taking mathematics. I have had a 5 year gap from my studies and Varna has been excellent, she helped me work my way up from an F to an A!!! I would recommend her for ALL my future mathematics classes.

About Elisa
Hello!

I love to teach and I have devoted my life to obtaining the highest music education possible. Learning to play an instrument is fun but it is also challenging. My lessons consist of technique and general music training that include aural skills and music theory. My lessons are a lot of fun because I have high standards, but also maintain a light hearted atmosphere. I teach violin and viola from beginning to advanced levels. My students have ranged in age from 3 to 65 years old and I feel that I can teach students at any age.

If you want to include learning to play the violin or viola in your life then I would be a great choice for a teacher. Thank you. Elisa

Elisa is a great teacher! She is sooooo talented! She was teaching violin to my 8 year old daughter in Ventura CA. She is very kind and patient with kids. We highly recommend her for teaching. We wish she could stay longer. Miss her.

My daughter started taking violin lessons with Elisa in January of 2014. She is by far the best music teacher that we've had! Elisa is very challenging but makes learning and playing fun. My 8 year old daughter has made leaps and bounds in music and can now read music after only a short 8 months of playing. My daughters bow hold and tone quality are absolutely excellent and it's because of Elisa! I would definitely recommend her as a teacher. You will not be disappointed.

Elisa is a very responsible, skillful, and sweet teacher

Before Elisa moved to Ventura, CA, she was a master student and taught in IP piano school and Kwong Kow Chinese School in Boston, MA. My daughter, Sarina, was one of her students. My daughter loves her so much and made good progress when Elisa was teaching her. Elisa made Sarina relax and comfortable so that she was enjoying the learning process; she emphasized on skill and poses, she tried hard to help the students to get to the best they could. She is reliable as you can talk with her about the timing change and make up lessions. She came to our house to say goodbye and hug Sarina before she left. She is a great teacher that you can count on and you will enjoy her teaching.

I've helped students who were below grade level achieve their grade level in Math Literacy. I identify the needs of learners and adapt course content and delivery style to meet the students needs. I prefer to use Expeditionary Learning which involves "learning by doing" and participating in a hands-on experience. Communicate with parent, teachers regarding students' progress.

About peggi
I have been tutoring elementary school students in reading comprehension & math for over 4 years one on one. I've helped students improve grades from failing to B's. I identify the needs of learners and adapt course content and delivery style to meet the students needs. Review materials assigned by the students' teachers and helped students complete homework. Communicated with parents, teachers regarding students' progress.

I like to use hands on learning. By 'doing' helps them to gain a better understanding of the material.

Learning can be fun! Don't let your child fall behind in learning.

Hello! My name is Negeen, and I am a 2nd year medical student. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in anthropology from the University of California, Berkeley.

I am an individual who finds math fun, and energizing. I find it fascinating at how many different formulas exist, and how there are often multiple ways of deducing the same problem and finding the solution.

I can help lead my students into finding the best formula that works for them/they are able to understand. I can guide them towards finding the solution on their own, rather than someone just telling them the answer.

What I feel sets me apart from other math teachers, is that I excel with communicating with other individuals who face mental health challenges such as ADHD and Aspergers Syndrome/Autism Spectrum. I have been certified in the state of Georgia for over 2 years now as a CPS-Y (Certified Peer Specialist-Youth).

I, myself have Aspergers Syndrome and ADHD. So, I can 100% relate to a lot of the challenges my students may face in regards to math skills and providing an effective learning environment. The reason I call these challenges, and not disabilities, is ...

About Stefan
Info for the students:

Hi there. My name is Stefan. You can also call me Mr. Maurer if you prefer.

I am really excited to be able to teach you about Math. Math is something I find joy in and am very passionate about.

One of my fondest memories was when my dad used to take me to stores, and if I could guess correctly what the change would be after he paid, I could keep the change.

One day he had only bought an item around a couple dollars and he had paid with a 20 dollar bill. Two things happened that day: I got almost 18 dollars. And, my dad never played that game again (because he did not want something like that to happen again, where I would make off with a lot of money, lol).

I would love the opportunity to teach you the math skills I know, and to get you just as excited about math as I am.

My classes
are fun, and full of energy as well as knowledge. I guarantee that you will learn a lot, and have a great time doing so. 🤣

While it may be difficult, I have the confidence required to bring out the best in my students, since I, myself, have had lived experiences where I have overcome challenges, and tore down obstacles, despite having Aspergers Syndrome and ADHD.

I would love the opportunity to teach my students math and have them also find joy in the math I am so passionate about. Thank you for your time and consideration.

I am actually a well-established instructor here on TakeLessons and was thrilled to find out Stefan Maurer is teaching Math online! Stefan is everything he describes. I should know - he is my nephew. I have personally witnessed countless scenarios of Stefan making mathematical calculations which far exceeded his grade level.

Stefan is patient, kind, full of encouragement and pays great attention to detail, which is crucial in math. He also excels with students who have ADHD, Asperger's Syndrome or are on the Autism spectrum.

It is with great confidence that I highly recommend Stefan Maurer!

I am a chemical engineer and as an engineer, you can never ignore maths because Mathematics is the language of physical science and engineering, Mathematics is more than tool for solving problems; mathematics courses can develop intellectual maturity. Mathematics is a part of everyone's life. Every student should experience the thrill of mathematical discovery. Every teacher can appreciate the elegance of a great mathematical insight.I also offer tutoring services in Prealgebra, Algebra 1;2, Pre calculus, Calculus, Geometry, Trigonometry.My experience in tutoring Maths have led me to compile my own practice sheets in each topic that has helped the students in so many years. My teaching philosophy is straightforward: teach your students as you would want to be taught - with enthusiasm, and with a passion for the subject combined with respect and understanding for the students. When teaching maths I make sure that the basics are grasped well because this is the only subject that ...

About Alisha
I have been tutoring for over 8 years now, My teaching philosophy is straightforward: teach your students as you would want to be taught - with enthusiasm, and with a passion for the subject combined with respect and understanding for the student. Chemistry and maths is a subject that I have studied, practiced, taught and enjoyed over the last 8 years Effective teaching involves time, dedication, patience, understanding, firmness, and a sense of humor. True learning incorporates active participation by the student, inside as well as outside the classroom.

Guiding students through the maze of chemical symbols, equations and concepts can only be accomplished by giving the students the means and opportunity to take charge of their own learning reinforced by an appropriate reward system. My main focus is to teach in a way that will re
ach all my students. I enjoy the challenge of working not only with different learning styles, but very different backgrounds, from honors students to students who have taken the course unsuccessfully before. Chemistry is difficult for most students, therefore they must be able to make mistakes, learn from them, and in the end be rewarded for their efforts and the chemical knowledge they acquired.
For a truly successful learning community, the importance of open two-way communication is emphasized in my class.This only happens if there is mutual respect.

My philosophy inextricably entwines my enthusiasm and passion for the subject of chemistry and maths with my respect and high regard for all students irrespective of their grades. It is particularly rewarding when students become majors or minors because of my class, which happens on occasion, or go on into professional school.
