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

Our son's Algebra tests have improved significantly with these tutoring sessions. Matthew did a great job accessing current knowledge level and working to catch our son up on what he did not understand as well as helping prepare for ongoing quizzes and tests. Very pleased and will continue with the tutoring!

Excellent first lesson. Alex learned more in this one lesson than he did in 3 lessons with a different teacher. Thank you.

Matthew is an excellent teacher. He's got the skill and patience to get the material across in a very clear way. I absorbed the material easily even though I was pretty new to this.

Experienced teacher of Biology available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of skills. I typically use books, and also have the tools available to use during lessons.

About Akib
I am eager and equally interested in applying to offer my skill. With the academic and leadership qualities that you are looking for, I believe I would be able to contribute to the objectives.

I am presently enrolled in New York Institute of Technology as a junior in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and complete my bachelors by December 2015. I am thrilled to know that you are looking for a tutor and I feel that this is the perfect platform for me.
As a result of my previous work experience in the Learning Center in my college for the last couple of years, I believe I am well equipped with not only academic qualifications but also experienced in working in an energetic and dynamic environment. I have been also serving for a tutoring Center, Math Matters and very much familiar with the new Common Core Curriculum. I am also
familiar with Regions Curriculum I have also served as a Supplemental Instructor for Physics that adds to my leadership abilities.

An opportunity to be able to work will prove to be mutually beneficial. While I will be able to gain further experience about the real-world applications of teaching, I believe that will also be a great addition to the working terms and contribute to your goals and objectives.
I am very enthusiastic about this opportunity and believe will be worthwhile for us to meet. I have enclosed my resume and would gladly answer any further. Please feel free to contact TakeLessons using the details mentioned.

Had so much problem with my basics. Akib has been patient and helped me clear things out. thanks a bunch!

This tutor does not fill the total time paid for. If the student has no more questions, rather than structuring the lesson like other tutors he will simply finish early! I am sure he is very knowledgable, but his accent is very strong, making learning a newer subject harder through trying to understand new words with a strong accent.
A fan was constantly ticking in the background, and he admitted his internet connection was poor.

About Jordan C.

Orlando, FL

4 years of Biology experience
Assistance in learning everything up to BSC2020 in college.
Averaged A in all Bio Courses
Very high understanding of coursework

About Jordan
Well Rounded.

That's how I believe every man and woman should become.

Most people put more time in one field and neglect everything else, when they should be efficient in multiple studies.
Being truly brilliant, is being truly knowledgeable overall.

In my life, I gained experience in many different fields and believed that it would be best to share them all with everybody else, and help each individual become someone knowledgeable in many different aspects of life too.
Because you never know, sooner or later, someone may ask for something that only you can help them with!

My son is quickly learning to read and play notes, beats and chords - which was broken down into basics and explained well. I think this will also improve his math understanding.

Jordan was very patient and personable with my son's lesson. It was his first time learning to play his beginner acoustic guitar. Jordan began with the basics, explaining frets, chords, how to pick and precisely tune listening to an online tuner.

The tuning homework exercise was just right for his introduction. He brought along his electric guitar and explained things for us in a way that was easy to understand and pick up. He is looking forward to his lessons.

I was stuck in a rut and unsure about how to improve my chess game. After a few lesson with Matt I feel a lot better about where I am at, and have been steadily improving over the last few weeks. Matt was able to figuring out why I was stuck, and what I needed to work on to get my chess abilities to the next level. Would highly recommend him for anyone who is looking to improve their game!

About Sanchita C.

Randolph, NJ
View Full Profile

Saying that I was born to teach biology wont be an overstatement.
I have 3 year experience of teachning biology and other life sciences subjects, and during this time I have been able to inspire my students to pursue a career in biology. My organised focus on different topics and flexibility to adapt with the student’s learning pace, makes me a good educator. My students have often found my lectures very interactive and engaging.

About Sanchita
I am an educator with 3 years of experience in teaching students of bachelor’s and master’s programs. I have taught Biology, biotechnology, biochemistry and molecular biology along with taking the lab sessions for the respective subjects.

I hold a Master’s degree in Bioinformatics and Bachelor’s degree in Biotechnology.

While working as an assistant professor for a state university I have organised many workshops and seminars to provide hands-on training to students.

I was rated the highest in terms of integrating technology in the classroom for the better understanding of the students. My students have always found my powerpoint presentations, videos and study material extremely helpful in grasping the concepts and applying it while solving problems.

I believe in one-on-one discussion of the topic and an interactive mode of
teaching to keep the students involved and engaged with the classroom’s atmosphere.

Teachning biology is not just my profession but also my passion and it has given me a skillset to understand and solve problems in other subjects like chemistry, physics and mathematics as well.

One of the best teachers. Helped me lay down a very strong foundation in the subject.

Sanchita is one of the best tutors that I have had the pleasure to study from. She not only saved me from failing my biochemistry course which I absolutely abhorred, but inculcated an immense interest in the subject in me. It's truly amazing how she breaks down the most complex concepts into smaller bits so that they are easy to understand.
She is a great mentor as well as a great human being. Apart from strengthening my fundamentals in biochemistry she also aided in honing my soft skills.
Rishi December 14, 2018

Sanchita has been a great teacher, I was least interested in biology, but she inspired me to pursue my bachelor's in biotechnology.

She understands the students level and teaches accordingly.

Undoubtedly, the best teacher.
