I just started her new program "How to sing Anime" and it's so much fun! I always wanted to learn how to speak Japanese and learn how to sing so this was perfect! She provided all the materials and to my amazement I learned how to introduce myself in Japanese in our first lesson! Best Teacher EVER!

Combine subjects for a price break. For example 30 minutes of Math and 45 minutes of English would cost $50 separately, but would cost $45 for 75 minutes of Combined Tutoring. Simply choose ONE subject for the amount of tutoring time desired, and notify me which subjects you'd like to cover.

I have worked as a tutor for several years and taught a variety of subjects. My main goal is to equip every student with tools they need to be successful. I care more about comprehension and learning, than grades. I work with each student individual to develop a personalized plan of organization, motivation, and accountability.

I could not be happier with my decision to take voice lessons with Ben! These past couple of months have been more beneficial to me than any of my previous experience with other teachers. I have already seen improvement in my voice and there is still so much I can learn. Ben works to improve the voice as a whole, rather than limiting it to one specific area. I would highly recommend him to those who are ready to put in the work necessary to get great results.

I have a Master's Degree in Education, and have been a professional tutor for 3 years.

My interest and expertise goes from Pre-Columbian to Present-day North American/Meso-American history, English/European History, and Asia/Oriental as well. I enjoy using fun simulation tools to teach normally dry subjects like History to go way past memorizing dates and political terms to enjoying why and how things are and came to be.

We have very lively discussions which are less like lectures and more like questions and answers. Since Larry is very knowledgeable, he is flexible in where we take our lessons. We've started with Classic Greek but we've also delved into other periods. This makes it quite enjoyable, since it's nice to be able to bounce around at times.

As a history major, I have an extensive knowledge of both world and US History. Lessons would be individualized to focus on areas that need the most guidance.

I have tutored students in European History,including adults working on taking the CSET to become a California licensed teacher. I have tutored students here in San Diego on US History, as well as taken the AP History exam, scoring quite highly. I also minored in it in undergrad. I'm originally from Virginia and grew up in the most historic city in the US, which gives me a leg up on actually being able to talk about people and places. In addition, I have written several papers on a variety of historical topics.

Why TakeLessons?

History Lessons

History is one of those subjects kids take in school that they either really love, or they really dislike. If your child falls into the latter category, it might simply be that he or she struggles with memorizing facts, figures and historical events. It could be that the subject seems to be a little bit boring. In any case, making sure your child has a good grasp of history is important. If your son or daughter seems to be having a difficult time with history in school, it might be time to look into history tutoring.

The Benefits Of History Tutoring

Our tutors work with your child one-on-one to help them to retain the information they're learning in their classes. Our history tutoring services can make your child's least-favorite subject come alive for them, giving them fresh insight and a desire to dig deeper into their history lessons. Sometimes it just takes someone investing in your child on a personal level to make them find a new interest in a subject like history, and our tutors are equipped to add some fun and excitement to this important school subject. Working with TakeLessons, you’ll be connected with qualified, local tutors, and receive helpful support along the way.
