Ms. Janai was the best tutor I have ever had. No matter the day, or time she was always there to help me out. Either it was math, science, writing, etc. she'd help me with every subject no matter how long it took for me to get it right, every subject was like her first nature. She was amazing teaching in person and just as good online. I've never met another tutor like Janai, she understands what you're going wrong and what your difficulties are, but she always manages to turn those difficulties around and make you better at understanding what you need to do better in order to succeed. If you're looking for an outstanding tutor Janai is the way to go!

About Matthew
Dear Parents and Students,

May I be a personal tutor for you or your child? I have been successfully tutoring for over 12 years. I have great references, and I am one of the top tutors because I am so easy to work with. I teach in person, or via TakeLessons classroom, telephone, Skype, FaceTime, Google Hangouts, Join.me, Appear.in, Screenhero (remote desktop, screen sharing) interactive whiteboards, as well as email attachments (PDF, Word, Excel, etc.) I graduated with honors, Summa Cum Laude from Case Western Reserve University, where I made the Dean's List.

I would be happy to answer any questions you might have regarding my experience and teaching methods. While it should go without saying, I have a clean background that has been verified by the FBI and BCII.

Matthew explained his approach to coaching and the plan so we were able to make an educated choice on the best tutor for our son. Matthew was responsive, organized and worked very well with our son. He communicated directly with our son and cc:ed me so that I was aware of the plan and f/u. His scores did improve on the SAT and we were pleased with the investment.

Matt has been awesome for my student. His math skills have improved greatly, and his  writing has come from illegible to what can now be described as neat and readable.  Matt has been very patient and deliberate with our son and has taken the time to really  explain things to Jake in a way he can understand. We would recommend this tutor to  any parent looking for a tutor for their grammar school student! Matt is also reliable and  prompt and showed up when expected which was helpful with our very busy schedules.

Matt has been awesome working with my sixteen year-old daughter and her algebra. She was hesitant about Skype and tutoring online but it has been so great working with Matt. He is very professional and organized and took the time to review her tests and homework prior to the scheduled session. He knew exactly what she needed to work on and after just a few sessions, she is feeling confident and has a better idea what and how to study! We highly recommend online tutoring and especially working with Matt!

Pre Algebra is based on a simple set of rules that must be learned, memorized, and applied. I'm a professional teacher with a unique ability to perceive what students understand and how they understand, which I use to efficiently build students' knowledge, saving them both time and money.

About Joshua
I am a tutor who earned a music teaching degree, substitute taught, and didn't become a school teacher. I held professional tech retail jobs and am supplementing my life with my passion - education.

Whatever subject or instrument I teach, I celebrate students' successes; and I enjoy helping learners have new aha moments.

The majority of my students take guitar, bass guitar, or Spanish lessons. I am an educator and help my students learn other skills and knowledge sets too.

I went to Ohio State University for college, earned a BA in Music Education, and graduated Cum Laude. I also spent 4 years in the Ohio State University Marching Band.

Through my healing journey, I've developed patience, insight, and understanding for my students' learning processes.

I'm excited to help you incorporate new skills into your life!

About Mena H.

Close
Orlando, FL
View Full Profile

My name is Mena. I have a strong background in math with a degree in Actuarial science and have been tutoring the SAT, ACT, Algebra 1&2, and Geometry for over four years. I have extensive knowledge of the testing strategies needed to make the exam fun and easy. I work with students to find areas that need strengthening then work patiently with them to hone their skills. Successful test preparation is largely about demystifying the test through time spent learning the correct approach which I have years of experience doing, with that confidence students can achieve any score they set their minds to.
There is a SPECIAL PRICE if you buy the whole course including all study materials.

About Mena
I have been tutoring Common Core Math, Algebra I & II, Geometry, SAT, ACT, and Grade school math since 2012; there is nothing I enjoy more than watching my students succeed.

I create a relaxed environment for my students in order to make the work stress free and enjoyable. My goal is to make the coursework fun for the student by finding an approach to learning that works best based on their unique characteristics. Being able to empathize with students in order to understand where their challenges lie and patient in helping them overcome those hurdles is where I excel. By exploring different approaches to difficult concepts I break them into manageable pieces that fit with each students prior experience which make learning approachable rather than overwhelming. Behind every concept we have yet to master there is a myth in our mind about
what it entails. Demystifying through creativity and humor allows my students to overcome a combination of fear, frustration and/or complacency that we all experience at some point while learning.

I have tutored dozens of students in the SAT and ACT and have helped them all increase their scores with most increasing their SAT score at least 100 points and some by over 400 points and on the ACT most by over 8 points and some by over 15 points. These are very difficult tests designed to be difficult to improve on. All of my students who gave themselves plenty of time to prepare and followed through on their promise to work on their own have seen significant score improvements.I have also worked with numerous students on developing study skills; helping them find the fun in school as well as helping with their organization skills and approach to homework.

We like Mena’s Style of teaching. He has a way to get my 16-yr-old son to study and do extra math work daily. He goes through the lessons to prep my son for the school work and also get him to do the SAT prep. He has a lot of knowledge and tricks on the SAT that are very helpful. We do a weekly class with Mena is the past 6 months and will continue through high school.

About Derek B.

Close

I have taught physics, chemistry, and math (from simple calculations, algebra, and geometry through to calculus) in classroom settings and as a tutor for over 10 years, before which I studied and worked as an environmental engineer. With math, regular practice is key. I have taught pre-algebra in the classroom at the middle school level, and it is often with those algebra skills that students later struggle, even when taking a calculus class! It is important to master the basics, as you may be using them for some time to come.

At my school, I was the teacher infamous for answering a question with a question in order to lead the student from what they already know through reasoning out an answer, which can sometimes take a little more time and effort than just giving the student the answer. Research proves that this is the best way to solidify your learning for deep mastery, though. Don't worry - I won't let you get too frustrated or ever abandon you as we explore and learn ...

About Derek
Initially trained in environmental engineering, I made the switch to teaching after spending two years as a volunteer teacher abroad. From there, I went on to earn my Masters in Teaching at Seattle University and to teach at public and private schools for the last 10+ years. I've tutored elementary students for whom English is a second language in math, tutored calculus, taught geometry and algebra, high school physics, and introduced a new curriculum to my school for the honors chemistry class, which I also taught.

I'm a big fan of learning by inquiry (especially for science and geometry), which involves trying something out and exploring it a bit, then processing what you experienced through conversation and critical thinking. I understand that not every student is looking for this, though, so if you're just looking to get throu
gh tonight's homework, I'm there for you, too!

Though I'm originally from Washington State, I recently moved to Canada with my wife and three young kids. I'm a lifelong fan of J.R.R. Tolkien (author of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings), hiking, permaculture, and enjoying our miraculous universe. We're hoping someday soon to build our own little hobbit-hole house homestead...

About Staci B.

Close
Wheaton, IL
View Full Profile

As the other subjects that I offer, I implement a lot of color and fun into my learning material and this is especially so for math, being that it is usually perceived as cold and rigid. I want to break down those mental barriers that we have created towards mathematics and introduce a less stressful perspective on mathematics. Mathematics does not have to be boring, or frustrating. It could be challenging, and fun at the same time. If you are never challenged, you will never grow.
My teaching style is empathetic and attentive to the student's needs and I make the student feel comfortable with not having it all figured out. Once we take a more relaxed approached, it will make retaining information a lot easier and more effective.

About Staci
Hey everyone. My name is Staci and I love meeting different students of different backgrounds and personalities. I have an Associates in Information Technology and am now pursing my bachelor's in the field, with a focus on programming. I am from Chicago so have almost seen it all. I excel in the field of communications and writing, and am also a freelance writer with several blogs of my own, and write for other blogs. I love writing research papers on various topics, especially on topics I am passionate about. I do creative writing and really have a good eye for art and film. In my spare time, I like to go to the gym, spend time with my fiance, canvas paint, and yes I even like to knit. Don't laugh at me. Music plays a major role in my life and know just about every R&B, soul, or hip-hop song that was released between the 80s-2000s.

I a
m the eldest of my siblings, and have a passion for teaching as much as I have a passion for learning. I have been tutoring since I was 8 years old, but did not monetize my tutoring skills until I was about 16 years old. Today, I am 25 and never get bored of finding different methods of teaching for individual students to help them achieve their academic or personal goals. I have tutored roughly 50 students in my tutoring career, more or less. I specialize in language, writing, Spanish for beginners, reading comprehension, vocabulary, writing research papers, science, mathematics from grades k-12, as well as college geometry and algebra, and many more subjects.

I cannot put enough emphasis on being patient with yourself when understanding a new concept. It's okay to not get everything the first or second time around. Take your time and enjoy the process of learning. You are actually exercising your brain when you are challenged, which is wonderful! I also want the people I work with to know that I am VERY LGBTQ friendly, and support minorities as well as understand some of the challenges they may face. Anytime you are in my presence, you are in a safe place, and you will always be treated with dignity.

Aside from being passionate about science for a few personal reasons, I actually aim to pursue medical school because of my passion for health and medicine. In case, for some reason I won't be able to do so, I have my bachelor's in an applied science to fall back on. Ultimately I would like to become an M.D working in the field of Preventative Medicine or become a surgeon I have written extensive research
