I've been playing a few instruments for 23 years, and finally decided to get into violin. Farobag made me realize that I know next to nothing about the violin, and there is so much to learn. I played only a few notes in my first lesson, but his instruction was worth every penny. I am very excited for the next lesson and look forward to learning everything I can from Farobag. Highly recommended.

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.

The GMAT is about practice tests. I'll put you on a regimen. I was working full time when I took the GMAT and had to schedule time to study and do well. Bring your study material and well set a game plan for success.

Jeff is so friendly! My 12 year old was very shy at first but he made her feel comfortable from the beginning and now she is very excited about going to her next class.
He is also very knowledgeable and professional.
Definitely a 5 star!

If you are a first time GMAT test taker, or have taken it but are disappointed with your score because you did not preprare well enough, then perhaps I can help you!

What you need to learn about this test is how to navigate yourself through each section avoiding many of the test "traps" for the unprepared and unwary.

I will prepare you step-by-step until you reach a relatively good level of preparedness and confidence.

120mins/lesson with 30min increments.

(IMPORTANT: Please do NOT book any lessons without confirming with me if we have a match in schedule. I have other obligations besides tutoring so if you do not have a flexible schedule, I recommend other tutors that will match your budget and schedule.)

· GRE · In studio
I️ was connected to Rod through a tutoring agency. I️ contacted the agency because I️ recently graduated college and wanted to get into grad school but had not taken a math class since the 10th grade. The school I️ was applying to needed a minimum math score for the GRE, which I️ knew would be a enormous stretch for me. Additionally, I️ always had trouble with math and knew I️ would need a tutor to re-teach me everything I️ needed to know to get the score I️ wanted. Initially, the agency connected me to 3 different tutors who were all absolutely terrible! Sometimes they didn’t even know how to answer sample questions in the workbooks! Finally, I was connected to Rod. After our first meeting I️ knew he would be the one who would help me improve. After a month of intense work with him my GRE math scores actually improved a full 12 points! Beyond that, he literally taught me math in a way in which I️ actually understood it. Before I️ just thought I couldn’t learn, but now I’m confident that I️ actually retained everything and it even made sense! I’m so grateful to have met Rod because before him I️ truly felt hopeless. I️ would definitely recommend Rod to anyone who is looking to drastically improve their math skills. If you’re like me and hate math, can’t grasp it, and even feel like you just can’t learn it, then definitely contact Rod now! You won’t be sorry!

I initially reached out to Rod for Algebra 1 review because I felt that my daughter lacked a solid foundation in algebra. However, after a couple of sessions, we have decided to switch gears toward geometry with Rod’s recommendation. Throughout the geometry lessons, algebra practice was incorporated. I am happy that not only did Rod tailor his lessons to my daughter’s goals but also he gave her a lot of encouragement. My daughter found it extremely helpful that she got to explain and discuss with Rod, which made lessons interactive and real learning. Now going back to school, my daughter feels confident, thanks to Rod!

Rod worked with my daughter weekly for a couple of months leading up to the NYC state tests. With Rod's careful, concerted planning and diligence, my daughter's score went from 2.4 on the 7th grade Math state test, to a 2.8 in 8th grade, which equates to a move from below the 50th percentile, to between the 50th and 75th percentile. My daughter's in-school math instruction was chaotic and disjointed, and I attribute her improvement to Rod's intervention.

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!

My son had to take the ACT for grad school and did not have enough time to prepare thoroughly. Bill was able to clarify all the majority of my son's questions and drilled on particular questions that gave him trouble. The preparation genuinely helped as my son received a 33 overall on the ACT.

In the last few months, I have progressed considerably. Bill helped me be more confident on my playing, and to rely on sheet music rather than memorization, which was what I used to do. This in turn allowed me to learn many pieces in parallel, and be exposed different types of pieces. He also helped me learn an anime song that I wanted to learn despite it being slightly out of reach for my level.

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.

Still not convinced that GMAT prep tutoring is for you? Check out these amazing benefits:
• 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.
