Highly unprofessional. Doesn’t know the subject well didn’t help my son at all. Not accommodating with the student’s schedule. Pls don’t waste money with her as your teacher.

I enjoy having Fiona as a tutor for both chemistry and geometry. She is kind and makes the material easier to understand. Also, she is patient and takes her time in explaining the concepts to me, step by step. I love how she types some parts of the problems in the chat box. ~Genesis C.

Studying is serious business. We will write essays. We will analyze passages. We will laugh in the face of all that is boring about standardized tests.

Ultimately, my paradigm as a teacher will be to make myself progressively unnecessary.

About Simeon

The most important attributes of any teacher are empathy and patience. I currently attend Harvard University and work as a professional writer and tutor. I've lived all over the United States, although I grew up in Scotland of all places. My scores on the SAT and ACT were perfect (1600 and 36 re

Words cannot express how awesome Simeon is....but here is an attempt. As parents, my wife and I cannot say enough great things about Simeon. Our child was preparing for his second attempt at the SAT's. Our child has a 4.0 GPA but did not do as well as he would have liked on the SAT's his first time. Our son was hesitant at first to work with a tutor since he thought he could prepare on his own and improve his score but as parents, we decided he needed outside help. That's when we found Simeon. Our son not only increased his SAT scores by almost 100 points in a very short window, but he extremely enjoyed his time with Simeon. Now that he and Simeon no longer meet on a weekly basis our son misses his time with Simeon. Simeon is extremely intelligent and has a way of explaining the concepts in a manner that anyone can understand. Simeon truly cares about the students he works with. We have another child entering high school next year and you better believe if he needs any tutoring Simeon will be getting a call.

Very intellectual and patient ... Cares and wanted to help .

Simeon has been an absolutely invaluable resource for my SAT prep. His encouragement is appropriately supplemented by challenging material and (appropriately) challenging expectations. He manages to make studying for the SAT fun rather than a laborious task and I could not recommend him more.

"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."

About Act

The ACT is now a necessary part of every high school curriculum. Every student in their junior year is required to take this standardized test in order to transition to the next year, making it essentially a replacement for the SAT (though SATs can still be taken for seniors).

Do I Need ACT Tutoring Lessons?

It doesn't matter where a student's strengths or weaknesses lie, or what subject they are in. Having a patient TakeLessons ACT tutor can help ensure the test is as painless an experience as possible. A helpful tutor will assist in:
• Developing math, science, reading and English skills
• Effectively solving common problems appearing on the ACT
• Preparing with practice tests, making students more likely to improve their overall composite score

Being well-prepared for the ACT will alleviate much of the stress of taking the test and, of course, the less stress a student is under, the better he or she is likely to do on the test.

The Benefits of One-On-One Lessons

TakeLessons ACT tutors work to understand the individual needs of each student and determine how they can best maneuver through the tougher areas of the test. ACT Prep tutoring gives every student the confidence they need to succeed, guiding them through the best ways to approach the test so they know what to expect.

Nothing should come as a surprise to a student who goes through extensive ACT Prep tutoring. Students will be armed not only with knowledge about the subjects appearing on the test, but also the way in which the test is administered and structured. Tutoring can also improve the overall learning abilities and test-taking skills of those students who commit to it, making it an invaluable asset in their future education experience, even after graduation.

Some of the benefits of working with a TakeLessons Certified Tutor include:
• Customized lessons to ensure the student is getting exactly what they need
• Safe, friendly, qualified tutors who have completed an extensive hiring process, including education, reference and background checks
• The flexibility of lessons in your home, online, or in a convenient location like a library or coffee shop
• A risk-free 100% money-back guarantee if you’re not completely satisfied

Taking part in TakeLessons ACT Prep tutoring equips students with tools for success, giving them the confidence to master the ACT when the time comes. Call us today to get started.
