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 was a National Merit Semi-Finalist since I got good scores on my PSAT test - also did well on the SAT. I was recruited by Michigan State University as a National Merit Semi-Finalist, and accepted into their Honors Program.

My daughter 7yrs took lessons from Karen for 8 months. She was so patient and kind. My girl loved her and her teaching style.
I would have given 5 stars if she had got a real piano, not an electronic one.

I have taught 30+ students in PSAT/NMSQT students (Math, Reading, Writing/English) as well as 30+ ACT students.

Using my broad teaching expertise and coursework in mathematics (algebra, geometry, trigonometry) I have helped prospective university students (juniors, seniors and even sophomores) get the scores they need to gain acceptance to their top school choices.

Let me show you how successful you or your child can be!

I've been teaching PSAT preparation for 10 years and my students have increased their PSAT scores over 500 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, their scores, and their vocabulary words daily through a virtual tracking system that I have created.

I provide a book list including Collegeboard and 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!!!!

We just had our first lesson. To my surprise, my usually shy 7 year old opened up quickly and started engaging right away. Gordon is great with young kids and we had a lot of fun. Nice experience and thank you Gordon!

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?

PSAT Lessons

Even though many feel that the PSAT is only a practice test for the important SAT, the PSAT, when taken in the junior year of high school, is used as a qualifier for the National Merit Scholarship. The test has challenging math and verbal sections combined with a third section concerning grammar. If you want your high school student to do well on this early indicator, you should consider TakeLessons PSAT prep tutoring.

While there are many different styles of learning, it probably doesn’t surprise you that many students learn and retain more with the one-on-one guidance of a tutor. Of course, there are PSAT learning modules available online, but you won’t get the focused, customized attention offered through the TakeLessons tutoring program. By connecting your students with a PSAT prep tutor, you can be confident that you’re giving them the tools they need to tackle the PSAT with confidence.

Some of the benefits of working with a TakeLessons Certified Tutor include:


• PSAT prep lessons that are customized to the specific needs of your son or daughter
• 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



Put your child on the road to success by letting us match them with a TakeLessons Certified PSAT tutor today!
