Mr. Cooper is an experienced teacher. He teaches piano, violin & vocal from basic to advance level. My son has been taking piano classes from him for the past 3+ years. He loves to go to Mr. Cooper's classes. The foremost quality in Mr. Cooper is that he seeks perfection and tries to imbibe the same in his students. He encourages all his students to perform their best and is extremely patient in dealing with his students. Mr. Cooper lets me sit in my son's lessons and I got my 101 on classical music with these sessons. I can appreciate what my son plays and also now able to appreciate classical music in general.
Mr. Cooper encourages all his students to participate in IMA annual contests and puts a lot of effort in preparing his students for the same.

Mr. Copper is one of the best teachers that I know. I am a slow learner and he would teach me things over and over again until I understand. Overall, he is a great teacher and I would recommend him if you need help on math.

I decided to start singing lessons with Mr. Cooper about a year ago and I'm very pleased with the Service. I believe Mr. Cooper is a very gifted musician and singer who has a real ability to understand music and teach that understanding in a relatable way. I'm just beginning to learn about different musical concepts that really help me understand how to learn more effectively. I appreciate everything he's helped me with and plan to continue learning as much as possible.
I would highly recommend him for any relevant musical training.

I have taught 30+ GMAT and GRE students and focus on both Math (Data Sufficiency and Quantitative) as well as English/Verbal. My GMAT students have consistently achieved between 610 and 680 and one exceptionally motivated student got a 720! Using my broad teaching expertise and coursework in mathematics (algebra, geometry, trigonometry) English (reading, writing, grammar) I have helped prospective MBA students get the scores they need to gain acceptance to their top school choices. Let me show you how successful you can be!

I've been teaching GMAT preparation for 3 years and my students have increased their GMAT scores over 70 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 and their scores daily through a virtual tracking system that I have created.

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

I can't wait to begin!

My GMAT journey began wth a large amount of frustration toward both the exam and the expectations I had set for myself. Leona was extremely patient and understanding of my schedule while I was working and made it a priority to help me feel better prepared in areas I was struggling. Bottom line, if you want to do well on this exam it is YOU who needs to put in the effort - Leona will give you the tools to succeed - but if you want a 700+, come prepared to eat, sleep, and breathe the exam. That being said, I'm happy to have Leona as very close friend of mine now and could not have gotten to the finish line without her! A million thank you's!!!!

I stress understanding (geometrically/analytically) rather than memorizing formulas. This ensures my students can derive formulas/solutions even without memorization.

I know firsthand how difficult it is to learn test taking skills whether you are a total newbie, or a budding intermediate, but I have overcame these challenges myself and will guide you to overcome them too. I also have 3 years of tutoring experience, which will surely come in handy!

Bill is superb at making difficult concepts easy! One particular problem I always had trouble understanding is calculating volume of revolutions using the cylindrical method. He drew a diagram explaining intuitively why the formula worked and it just clicked.

Why TakeLessons?

GMAT Lessons

As more and more people pursue advanced degrees, a bachelor’s degree from a four-year college may only be worth what a high school diploma was in the past. Many jobs now require an advanced degree and, regardless of the path you choose, you’ll still need to take the GMAT to get into a good graduate school.

The GMAT. or Graduate Management Admission Test, contains an Analytical Writing Section, a Quantitative Section, and a Verbal Section, and if you're not familiar with the exam's structure, you can find yourself easily challenged and often frustrated. While you can attempt to take the exam without GMAT prep tutoring by employing books, pre-tests and educational materials you find online, you may still find yourself struggling to master the skills necessary to tackle the test. This is where the benefits of a TakeLessons tutor come in.

What to Expect With TakeLessons

Private tutoring can lead to a better score. It can be an intense and worrisome process to sit at a computer all day and try to work through complicated questions and procedures, but it will be a lot easier if you have a friendly and knowledgeable tutor at your side.

• Customized lessons to ensure you’re getting exactly the guidance you 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.
