Chicago, IL

I have been teaching math for several years now and understand the need for a good foundation. I work with students to find any concepts they have missed or do not fully understand. My goal in teaching math is always comprehension not grades. After laying a good foundation, it is amazing to see the improvement and success my students have had!

I've been taking lessons from Benjamin for about 6 weeks now, and it has been a great experience. He especially helped me prepare for a performance while I was battling a cold. He gave me useful techniques and advice on how to get through the sickness without hurting any of the mechanisms used in singing.

Shellora is an AMAZING piano teacher! She is very sweet and when she corrects you she does it in a way that makes you feel good about yourself, unlike some of my other teachers who put you down until you finally succeed. I have recommended her to all of my friends and family! You will not regret taking private lessons with Shellora!

Where to start. Alex is a just a great all around person. He makes learning fun. As long as you put in the time and effort he will guide you through to where you need to be. Never a dull moment, as his lessons bring out the best in you. I would highly recommend going to him, as his style is very different than other tutors or professors. He encourages you to engage in what you are studying; to be proactive and animated, which ultimately leads to results, while having fun in the process. His style is the way learning in general should be. His techniques will train you to remain calm in the face of adversity. You will not regret going to Alex. Again, as long as you put in the time, he will help you get the results you want.

Math, it's more than just the numbers. It's all about the methods and logic behind those numbers.

As an engineer from both Intel and Apple, I understand how various types of math are used in the real world. As an electrical & computer engineering graduate from Cornell University, I also understand the chalkboard theory as well.

Why TakeLessons?

Math Lessons

Mathematics is not everybody's strength. there are many subjects people can excel in and still find math a challenge, but where there is a challenge, there is a way to take advantage of it. Private math tutoring can help any student struggling with numbers and make the learning experience more rewarding.

What can math tutoring offer? If you're having trouble with math, a tutor can assist you with strategy development and new way of thinking in certain areas. Tutors can help with common arithmetic equations, reviewing addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

The truth is that tutoring can help develop skills even if you're already doing well in a particular subject. Working with TakeLessons offers the additional benefits of flexible scheduling and our 100% Money Back Guarantee.

Do you really need a tutor? Whether you're a high school student reviewing the basics or a college graduate in need of those final math requirements, a tutor can greatly assist you in setting and accomplishing your goals. Math tutoring can open a world of opportunity for any student eager to find the best route through math courses.
