Mr. Farobag has taught our boys the piano and violin utilizing the Suzuki method. He is a true gentleman and an amazing teacher. I cannot say enough about him. We have had several instructors and Mr. Farobag far exceeds our expectations. We are very lucky to have found him. Mr. Farobag understands the pace of each child and knows how to motivate the student to exceed his expectations. Hiring Farobag has not only given us a superb instructor but a great teacher as well. He is very intelligent and kind and his lessons can be applied far beyond the keys of the piano. My kids always look forward to seeing Mr. Farobag.

I have taught 10+ GMAT and GRE students and focus on both Math (Data Sufficiency and Quantitative) as well as English/Verbal.

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 hired Matt to specifically help me prepare for the Quantitative section of the GMAT. We met online for several 2 hour tutoring sessions over the course of a month. Matt was very understanding of my busy work schedule and worked our appointments around this. During our tutoring sessions, Matt did a great job of explaining and helping me solve GMAT exam practice problems. He is very friendly and laid back, while also being an utmost professional. I highly recommend him for any of your graduate school level exam preparations.

We switched my son from clarinet to saxophone in the middle of the school year and hired Matt to help get him caught up with his bandmates. Matt relates very well to an 11 year-old boy, and although he was serious and got to work immediately, he put Josh at ease from the start. I was initially worried that a 90 minute lesson would push the limits of my son's endurance, but he has really enjoyed the sessions, and the longer time has been very beneficial. Overall a 100% positive experience

I love teaching, and I love Math. I've been preparing students to succeed in the GMAT (Quantitative and Verbal) for the past 5 years and my students score between 650-720. I specialize in online lessons. I use the student's book or my own materials. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

First time user on Take Lessons. He couldn't provide all the study material as first initiated and seldom sat in a quiet area to provide lessons so the lesson would be distracted by noises in his background. Dissatisfactory service. Highly disappointing.

My oldest has struggled for the first time in a math class this past year. At the beginning of the year I accepted he just didn't mesh with his teacher's style but as his grades continued to plummet and everything we tried at home wasn't working I finally reached out for a tutor. I wasn't sure how well Algebra 1 tutoring would work this far into the school year (Q4) . I'm not a stickler for grades, I just need to know my children understand the concepts they are supposed to be learning. And I needed someone who could really evaluate Tommy based on where he is now, what he's missed in the classroom and how to give him that solid foundation in Algebra 1 so he can be more successful next year as he goes into Geometry and eventually into Algebra 2. It was a very frustrating year for both Tommy and myself to have him struggle in it despite all the support he had from his step-dad and I and virtually none from his teacher. I was watching my son who every previous year LOVED math start to just hate it.

So I turned to Daniel M. as a bit of a last resort. I wasn't sure if he would be able to evaluate where Tommy was struggling, shore up the missed/misunderstood concepts and teach in such a way that Algebra made as much sense to Tommy as all his previous maths did.

I have to say, Tommy and I are both very impressed with Daniel after just the first lesson! Tommy came away excited with how easily it was for him to absorb the information Daniel laid out for him and how it's 100% a better fit for Tommy to understand the equations after just the one lesson! I wish I had the money to just hire Daniel for tutoring much more often, but thankfully he is so good at breaking down where the confusion lies on Tommy's end and explaining it in such an easy to comprehend way that I am fully confident Tommy will end this year on a high note in both his confidence and his grades. I can't wait to see where we go from here!

Doing mathematics is like traveling to a new place. It can be exciting and even a little scary. I can act as something like a 'tour guide of math' and show you what's important, what's interesting, and what's going to be on the test.

Ten years ago, I began tutoring. If I have learned anything over the years, it is that hard work pays off. I believe in setting realistic goals and developing a plan to achieve those goals. My advice to all students is to make a commitment and stick with it.

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.

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!

Overall I think he is a good teacher. Very patient, clear and explained things well to my daughter who struggles with some basic concepts in Math. He was patient and is very enthusiastic about teaching his subject matter. I'm confident that my daughter will make a connection with Math! Thank you.

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.
