Tim K.

Schertz, TX

I have been teaching for 24 years and have worked with students at every level from pre-kindergarten to university. I received six hours of college credit in English from Trinity University based upon my entrance exam scores. I have tutored students in several different subjects, including English, Math, Science, study skills and test preparation.

He was experienced and very caring for my daughter to feel comfortable.
It was a first piano lesson for my 7 year old and she bragged about how she enjoyed the class. I am so glad that we found him!

Tim is an excellent teacher. He is great with my 9 year old daughter in her piano lessons. He is very patient, and quite passionate about music. He takes the time to answer my daughter's many questions, and has helped to further her passion for piano playing. She has been taking lessons with him for almost a year now, and has enjoyed and benefited from every minute. I couldn't ask for a better piano teacher!

This teacher let me 9 year old struggle through piano pieces he hadn't played in month during his first lesson, although I made sure to let him know that my son hadn't played in over half a year. The teacher sat there in silence as my child struggled through the pieces. He didn't give any positive or constructive feedback as my child sat there in silence struggling. He took a phone call during our 30 minute lesson and wrote comments in his notebook, visible to my child such as "rusty" "needs improvement". I was tempted to rescue my son after 15 minutes, but hoped that some instruction would soon take place, it didn't. Not suitable for young children in my opinion. Definitely will not return.

As a student preparing for college, I scored in the 99th percentile on the ACT.

I have over 5 years tutoring for ACT preparation. I have a vast amount of materials that aid in lessons and regularly review the exam, in order to stay current with any changes in the test format.

As an example, over a Summer session (which, yes, was very thorough and and rigorous), we worked together to raise his composite score by 7 points in a period of just 6 weeks.

I will help your son or daughter achieve their score through a variety of techniques, tailored to their needs, that I have fine-tuned during my years of experience with this exam.

We are very satisfied with Erin's services - our daughter improved her ACT score by 4 points with Erin's tutoring assistance! Erin knew how to use technology to make the online tutoring sessions as effective as though they were in person. Not only is she smart in the subject matter, she is also very personable. I would highly recommend Erin!

I did well on the ACT. Preparation for these tests requires not only knowledge of the subject matter but test-taking strategies such as time management.

I chose Paul because of other reviews. We set a plan before I purchased sessions.

I had to ask for him to deliver notes a few times before our session. He asked to reschedule the first session. I accepted.

The session went well as Paul is knowledgeable about the material. He again agreed to give me notes as we initially agreed. The notes did not come in and I followed up with him. He promised them again and did not deliver.

I still scheduled another session with him. He rescheduled and I agreed. Again, I asked him for the notes and he did not deliver. It came time for the 2nd session and I hear nothing from him. At this point I returned all my sessions.

I would not recommend Paul because of his reliability and lack of follow through. The only reason I gave him two stars instead of three was because he was knowledgeable for the first session we had.

WOW! We are so very impressed with Paul. As an educator myself, I had high expectations for my daughter's math tutor. He has far exceeded my expectations. He is knowledgeable, goes above and beyond to help her succeed, and knows how to reach her. Within a few sessions her grade went up multiple letter grades. Choose Paul, you'll be happy with your decision.

Why TakeLessons?

ACT Lessons

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.
