Dr. Nupur is the best teacher ever, we feel lucky to have found her at takelessons.

Her background is impeccable and in addition, she is a teacher who cares. She cared about my daughter, her progress (high school, chemistry) and well-being. My daughter's progress in less than 1 month was amazing: she went from 'we're a bit concerned for your grade' to the point she was helping others in class.

Dr. Nupur is the kind of teacher you wish your kids to have. I recommend her highly.
Sharon
I aced my MCATs. Thank you Dr. Pande.

Dr. Pande was punctual and flexible. She worked with my schedule. Her knowledge is encyclopedic. I will highly recommend her.

I've been teaching SAT preparation for 10 years and my students have increased their SAT scores over 500 points from their initial scores.

I create a personalized daily syllabus that caters to each student's individual strengths and weakness, and check in with my students daily to make sure that they are completing their homework assignments and have no questions.

My program is rigorous and demanding, but leads to significantly higher scores very quickly. I do not give my students a chance to slack off or to stop doing their homework assignments because students are required to enter when they have completed their homework assignments, their scores, and their vocabulary words daily through a virtual tracking system that I have created.

I provide a book list including Collegeboard and Kaplan books, though can work with whatever books students already have. I incorporate technology to keep students engaged.

I can't wait to begin!

Leona is an exceptional teacher. From the very beginning of our lesson she made me feel comfortable with getting to the root cause of the mistakes that I’ve made on past GRE exams. She is easy to work with and didn’t waste a moment of our time. I felt relaxed and the content that I was shaky on before we started the lesson was made clear and I feel more confident than I’ve ever felt in answer the specific questions we went over, which were quite a few. Extremely grateful. I’m also happy that she assigned homework before our next lesson. It really helps gauge progress. Excellent teacher!
Matthew H.
Leona has been my life coach for several sessions now and I could not more highly recommend her. Depending on what information she is given beforehand, she will research the situation of the particular student (what career field they are considering for example) and bring what she has learned to the session. She then will listen intently to the student to find out what they want and what is most important to them. After that she will make excellent recommendations designed to maximize the chance that the student will succeed. After having several sessions with her, I can confidently say that every piece of advice she gives leads to a positive outcome if followed. For these reasons, I wholeheartedly recommend her.
Concetta
I have been learning so much from Leona. I wish I had of started with her when I first began my GMAT journey. She makes everything very easy and break things down. You can't go wrong picking her.
