I have over 5 years experience in math tutoring at all levels. I can help your student improve his or her math skills!
My name is Ryan B. I play and teach guitar, bass and drums, and piano and would love to teach you or help you improve your abilities! I have been playing all four instruments for 25 years, and I have a personal, laid-back style that helps connect with each student.
I have been with TakeLessons for over five years now, and am truly blessed to have worked with so many great students.I will teach you what YOU want to play, regardless of style or genre you like in music. I design my lessons around YOU, and what YOU want to learn!
Let's talk guitar! Guitar is the ultimate instrument to learn! It is versatile and portable and you can learn quickly, regardless of your favorite style. I teach acoustic and electric guitar. I cover basics, such as chords, scales and solo work. I cover a wide ran
Piano is one of the most important instruments to learn, especially for children. The benefits are endless. For piano, I teach beginner through intermediate students. Piano is a popular choice because it has a very friendly layout with the keyboard. I use a proven 6 level method to take you from Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star to Ode to Joy! I cover how to read sheet music and cover a wide variety of musical styles!
Do you like the deep, powerful sound of the bass guitar? Well, I cover that too! The bass is a FUN instrument that is very friendly to learn. If you ever want to join a band, the bass is essential instrument, because it goes well with the drums. I cover a wide range of styles from blues, funk, rock and jazz! Go for it!
As a kid did you set up pots and pans or pillows and hit them with spoons like I did? Well, then the drums may be for you! You can learn drums with a pair of sticks! Drums are a total BLAST to play, and if you are not one who wishes to read sheet music,then the drums are perfect for you! I cover a TON of different styles, and if you have a favorite drummer, you can learn to play like him or her relatively quickly!

I love math!

I sought Meagan out after my daughter came home with a failing grade in Algebra I. I am very happy with my selection, she is the perfect fit for my daughter. She is very flexible and I appreciate that she doesn't make my daughter feel like her lack of understanding of the subject matter makes her inadequate. I am going to continue hiring Meagan for the duration of the school year, my daughter really likes her and is learning far more than she is from her regular classroom environment.

I'm knowledgeable and patient. I believe it is important to build on the student's confidence as well as their skills, because panic hurts performance almost as bad as being unprepared.
I have a Masters and a degree in Economics from Southern Illinois University. My undergrad minor was Mathematics. I am a professional economist with a heavy background in math and statistics. I've been active in this discipline for over 30 years in a wide variety of industries. I was also in the Air Force.
I have good rapport with young children, and tutor from Kindergarten to adult. It would be helpful to know what textbook your child is using so I could work from the same text (which I would either purchase or rent online).
I'm a Veteran of the US Air Force, with a highest rank of Staff Sergeant.
For Chess lessons, I've been a competitive chess player since 1974, and a Life Member of the US Chess Federation since 1974 as well. My current rating is 1790, which places me in the top 5% of competitive players in Texas and the top 10% in the United States. I'm also a certified local chess coach and a certified local tournament director for th

Depending on the level of the student, we will study tips and tricks of concepts, practice not only on paper but in real world situations, complete homework assignments and boost confidence in the student.
Acting students can expect to improve each week in their character development, technique, script analysis and realistic performance abilities. We will also explore theatre spaces, prepare for auditions and determine specific physical warm ups designed for the individual student to assist in releasing tension. I strive to help all students perform at their highest level and obtain professional opportunities!
Dance students can expe
Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.
Academic students can look forward to a fun learning environment, honing in concepts from their subject in a unique, non lecture style. I am an incredibly hands on teacher and love to incorporate technology into my lessons!
While the arts are my passion, a well rounded academic student is a must! I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better performer!

I like basic math. Without basic math, we cannot do the more advanced math like Algebra. Basic math is an absolute necessity to function in society. I really hope to help students learn the concepts that they need to be successful.
While tutoring at ASU, I have modified my tutoring style to provide better service. What happens is that during the first few sessions, I get to know each person and some things about the course that they are taking such as the syllabus content, the type of grade the person wants in the course, the number of points each assignment is worth, and the date of the next major test. I then try to hold tutoring sessions in accordance w
Usually, I tutor by appointment and each session usually lasts for about 1 hour. In order to reschedule or cancel an appointment, I request a 24-hour notice. I am willing to meet in a public place or online.
I also make videos that cover math concepts in order to make it a little easier for students to get the information that they need to be successful. If you would like for me to make a video, please let me know!
Please contact me and we can get started.

Our concept of numbers shapes our world. Why do ancient years go from BC to AD? We needed separate labels for "before" and "after", which weren't on a single scale.
Why did the stock market set prices in increments of 1/8 until 2000 AD? We were based on centuries-old systems. Ask a modern trader if they'd rather go back.
Why is the decimal system useful for categorization? You can always find room for a decimal between two other ones, and progressively classify an item (1, 1.3, 1.38, 1.386).
Why do we accept the idea of a vacuum, empty space? Because you understand the notion of zero. (Maybe true vacuums don't exist, but you get the theory.)
Why is anti-matter or anti-gravity palatable? Because you accept that positives could have negatives that act in opposite ways.
How could the universe come from nothing? Well, how can 0 be split into 1 and -1?
Our math vocabulary shapes what we're capable of thinking about. Multiplication and division, which eluded geniuses a few thousand ...

Experienced tutor studying Early childhood Education, I love being apart my student's learning process. I am all of my lessons to be fun, engaging, and relaxing. Students will definitely love the laid-back environment I provide. Not only will you have a great time, but you will also be engaged and learn the math content effectively! Part of my lesson includes hands-on activities and visuals that give a great clarification for the material!
Math students can expect a fun, engaging environment, with multiple opportunities for growth and many questions. Each student is unique in their own way and I love meeting students where they are, building from there. I like to build off of prior knowledge in order to help them understand more complex ideas. Moreover, relating questions to situations/ideas they are familiar with will help with understanding!
I have experience tutoring and teaching students from ages 2, all the way up to 18! I currently tutor 6th-9th graders on Saturday mornings in subjects such as English, Math, and Study Skills. During the
As a future educator, I pride myself on making sure my students are confident in their work and reach their fullest potential. Having fun, making sure the students are relaxed, and a comfortable environment are my 3 main goals for each session! My personal passions include Math, special education, and music!
Using research based instruction, my lessons are about student understanding through conceptual learning and not procedural. The students will learn the why math works. Through the use of hands on activities, I make the math relatable to the student.
I have a masters degree in mathematics education from the University of Texas at Arlington. I’ve taught in elementary schools, tutored middle and high school, and I am an instructional coach for math teachers.
For instance: did you know, no matter what a person's height divided by the distance from the belly button to the floor is going to be around 1.618 (depending on accuracy of measurements)?
Do you want to know why the "Butterfly Method" works when comparing fractions?
Do you want to know what you are doing with simplifying polynomial expressions?
I can help you to understand how fun and important math is and how it is all around you.
