About Alex
I have been teaching private lessons since 2001 and I am currently available to teach lessons online or in my office. As a professor , I have helped students in a number of computer science and math oriented areas including standardizes tests, as well as helping them have the confidence to overcome struggles with difficult subjects.

I believe that learning should be fun and engaging, and that no one perfect method exists to teach all students. During our lessons I try to take note of whats working and whats not, and when I find types of examples that work, I keep using them to help you accelerate your learning

Alex, being well seasoned in academia and founding an analytics company has provided him a broad knowledge in statistical software (E.g. R, Minitab, etc.). His approach to learning is simply holistic. With all seriousness, it can only be said that Alex walks on water. Alex can vividly describe the story behind the data, giving you the frame of reference needed to retain what you had learned. Discussing his abilities and his willingness help, it would be more accurate to compare him to Yoda, than anything else. He is one with statistical software. Having an hour session with him is like three days of studying on my own.

About Ouray
Are you looking for a tutor who can make sense of math?

I love seeing the ‘lightbulb’ moment when my students suddenly connect the dots together. Math can seem complicated, but with the right guidance and tools, the dots start to connect themselves!

Over my 10+ years as a math tutor, I’ve seen how a tough math problem can become clear as day when you have the right tools and guidance to come at it from the right angle.

I teach math in person and online, using visual aids, online tools, animated discussion and lots of fun, to help you understand the simple rules behind even the most complex concepts. I tailor your class to suit your individual needs.

Learning is an exciting process, and communication is the key. I want to see my students build knowledge, express their ideas and gain confidence on the way to passing with flying

I tailor my lessons for excellence in the long run. That said, it’s amazing what you can do in just one lesson.

My son was apprehensive about doing this online, but Ouray but him at ease and they had there first session. When a 16 yrs old boy that doesn't speak much to his parents says "It was good" (with a smile on his face), we have success!

Having previous experience with many different math tutors, Ouray is BY FAR the best. As an ASU business student, I have been required to excel in math and this would have been absolutely impossible without Ouray. He is the friendliest, most relatable and enjoyable tutor there is. He is also incredible flexible with dates, times, and meeting spots which has made my life so much easier! From pre-calc to statistics, Ouray was always prepared and helped me to understand the material in such a simple, approachable way, completely different from that of my professors. Overall, the BEST TUTOR/PERSON you will find.

About Alex H.

Littleton, CO

View Full Profile

I have dealt with calculus for years and can help you master it as well! Calculus is very much a language and learning to speak it is not so daunting with the right teacher. I am that person.

I have dealt with calculus from high school to the present. I took AP calculus BC and scored a 5 on the AP test. I've also taken calculus III and Differential Equations and TAed the latter in college. I have worked with multiple students in preparing for calculus exams (AP and collegiate) and worked with the material continuously as a physics major. You want someone who has worked in (and TAed) the subject to help you master it!

I work with students through material, practice problems, test/quiz prep, teach supplemental lectures from unclear lectures in class, and write practice materials for my students! Let me help you master this topic to meet your goals.

Shoot me a message to tell me your goals and I'll help you meet them!

About Alex
Teaching is what I do! I have TAed multiple classes and taught dozens of students. I teach piano and other music concepts, as well as STEM fields in school. I only teach concepts that I'm completely fluent in, however, so you always get the absolute best instruction possible!

I have been playing piano for over 12 years. I retrained from scratch in the Taubman Technique a few years ago and play with ease and effortless musicality! I have taught tons of students how to play the instrument, incorporating these concepts into their playing as well.

I also tutor in STEM topics, including all math, physics, chemistry, and others. I have tutored over 2 dozen students and helped many achieve great results. I have a Master's degree in applied physics, graduated Magna cum Laude, and am fully prepared to help you master your math/science class

Schedule a lesson with me! See yourself improve from someone who knows how people think and understands the topics enough to impart the same onto you!

· Piano · In home
I have been working with Alex for about a month and a half. He has been professional, organized, and strict. His techniques have improved my piano skills tremendously. My last piano teacher was not structured and as a result I did not learn anything from the lessons; she let me run the lessons and never taught me about music theory, hand techniques, or gave me homework. However, Alex gave me all of those things. He is patient and always wiling to share new information; he is not hesitant to answer to answer questions or critique your technique. If you're looking for someone who is serious, strict, and professional, I would strongly recommend Alex.

About Linda C.

Brooklyn, NY

View Full Profile

With a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley, I have taught basic engineering at UC-Berkeley as a graduate student. Materials Science requires strong math and algebra background. I also taught basic engineering in the Gifted Youth Program at Stanford University. I have been teaching Data Visualization online at the University of New Mexico. In this class, I pioneered the methods of using art as a visualization tool to teach students math, which I believe it can be easily applied to students at all ages.

My Tutoring Style:

I come up with a lesson plan catering for each student's need. In the first few lessons, I will introduce you the basic concepts required to the subject. In the next few lessons, you will be able to gasp the subjects by practicing example questions under my guidance. Each example question is designed to cover a certain concept introduced in the first few lessons. The ultimate goal for you is to learn the concept ...

About Linda
With a Ph.D. in materials engineering from the University of California, Berkeley, math and algebra have always been my favorite subjects at school. I scored perfectly in GRE Quantitative and a 3.9 GPA in college math classes (calculus 1, 2, 3. Linear Algebra, Calculus AB, BC, Statistics).

With more than 10 years experiences (Online and face-to-face combined) in classroom teaching engineering, science, and art, I have been tutoring various math topics (from Middle School to College Calculus) online since 2015. I well organized and enjoy breaking down complex math problem into simple terms.
I enjoy working with students one-on-one,I find that when I have a chance to zero in on and accommodate students' individual needs and learning style, the experience becomes more productive and enjoyable for everyone involved.

I have a passion fo
r math. For me, tutoring math, is not only helping students to excel in standardized tests, or gain good grade in a class, but also teaching students who want to learn math, the rule that governs our world, at an extremely thorough, in-depth level.

My Tutoring Style:

I come up with a lesson plan catering for each student's needs. In the first few lessons, I will introduce you the basic concepts required to the subject. In the next few lessons, you will be able to gasp the subjects by practicing example questions under my guidance. Each example question is designed to cover a certain concept introduced in the first few lessons. The ultimate goal for you is to learn the concept that you can use it freely at anytime as it becomes your second nature.

Linda helped my daughter with the math session of SAT. My daughter was ready to throw in the towel and totally give up on the subject. After she had a few sessions with Linda, I saw my daughter's confidence in her ability to understand the work grow from session to session. Linda is very easy to work with as well as very communicative.

I have always been struggling with the quantitative section in SSAT, and I could never grasp the meaning the questions. Linda had helped me understand what I'm better at and worked with me to improve on the things I struggle with. I even learned a few new strategies and how to tackle difficult questions. I would recommend her to the people that are struggling with anything related to math.

About Nayoon K.

Boston, MA

View Full Profile

I am an MIT tutor specializing in math and science, and I have taught math anywhere between pre-algebra and calculus (including algebra) for 5 years. I have taken AP Calculus BC while in high school, and I have taken Multivariable Calculus and Differential Equations at MIT, and I actively participated in many math competitions through elementary, middle, and high schools.

Before the lessons, I like to talk with parents, students, and/or teachers to fully gauge what they have been struggling with and how to best help them. Then I identify the student's gap in knowledge while helping them complete their homework and give them additional drilling problems as needed to help them fully master the materials and do well on their tests. I always carry around AP Calculus prep books or college calculus practice problems (depending on the students' levels) so that the students can practice these problems as needed. I also provide them with additional resources and practice problems as needed.

About Nayoon
I'm an MIT tutor specializing in math and test prep, and I have taught math (anywhere from prealgebra to calculus) for 6 years. I have gotten perfect scores on SAT Math, SAT Subject Test Math Level 2, and ACT Math, and I also recently helped one of my students raise his SAT scores from 670 to 800 in a month. I also have taken AP Calculus BC (single-variable calculus) in high school and Multivariable Calculus and Differential Equations at MIT. I have been an active member of math team from elementary to high school, and my sister and I solve math problems for fun in our spare time.

I'm passionate about learning and student development. I read about learning hacks when I'm tired, and, in my ideal vacation, I would learn about all things that are on my bucket list (yes, I'm serious). I'm also near-obsessed about students' experiences and
their development and nearly always think about the ways to improve their experiences. The student testimonials below confirm their excellent experiences.

“I would not have passed my test in such a short time without her. I hired her a week before my test. She was very professional and very smart, and she used different technique to help me remember.”
- Fabiola L.

“Calc is going great. I got all A’s on my first three tests. Thank you for all your help!” 
- Mark G.

“My daughter is so happy about her A in math. Thank you for everything you are teaching her!”
- S., Newton, MA

I believe in in-depth learning. In-depth learning helps my student build the foundation necessary to succeed in their future courses. To facilitate this type of learning, many of my lessons feature derivation of formulas. For the lessons that do not involve formulas, I present a few simple concepts from which we can derive and solve many other problems. My lessons also feature numerous questions to enhance student engagement and to improve student confidence of having them solve the problem on their own as much as possible. I then drill my students with practice problems and get them to explain until I'm fully convinced that my students truly understood the material.

Though I specialize in gifted students, I also have worked with students from all kinds of background. Most of my students are either high school or college students, but I also worked with younger students. I also helped some students implement organizational tips and develop study skills necessary to succeed in their future classes. My students are from all over the world--China, France, Korea, Puerto Rico, Taiwan, Vietnam, and United States. To this day, my closest friends are still the international students. English is my second language as well, and I certainly empathize with students who struggle with the English language.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or if you think we may be good fit!

I studied theoretical math at MIT and have a decade of experience teaching calculus at all levels.

About Matt
I'm a professional, independent, highly experienced private teacher. I specialize in high-level academic tutoring and rigorous test preparation for high school, college, and graduate students.

I studied math, literature, and philosophy at MIT and Harvard, and I have a decade of professional teaching, tutoring, and mentoring experience in the Boston metro area -- and around the world by Skype. I've always been interested in both the sciences and the humanities, and I love sharing my passion for ideas. On the science side, I've worked in labs at NASA, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, the McGovern Insitute for Brain Research, and MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. And on the humanities side, I was an editor at a political and literary magazine for four years; I've also edited three books published by MIT
Press and co-edited a chapbook of poetry including work by the former U.S. Poet Laureate. When I'm not teaching, I'm probably reading, writing, running, or thinking about teaching.

My philosophy is simple: I teach the way I would want to be taught. No matter the subject, my goal is to help students achieve deep mastery and long-lasting understanding, not just better grades and test scores. I emphasize critical and creative thinking, never rote memorization or mechanical rule-following. I focus on big-picture ideas and precise reasoning -- not just the what or the how but the why.

My profile here at TakeLessons is new, but I have more than 60 student testimonials at my WyzAnt profile (username MITHarvardTutor). I'm happy to put prospective clients in touch with former students.

Please also read the "subjects" section for more specific information. I want you to make informed decisions and to receive the best service possible. I look forward to working with you!


Please know that I am one of the most, if not the most, highly rated academic coaches in the United States on another well-known website. Your "wise" "aunt" may have told you about it. I am willing to provide my services at a discount, since I am new to TakeLessons. Take advantage of this opportunity! You will be glad you did!

You and your loved ones will receive support from a coach who is well-educated and exper
ienced.

I act as a teacher, manager, mentor, organizer, counselor, resource expert, educational consultant, and motivational speaker. I create short-term and long-term solutions by utilizing comprehensive, multidimensional approaches. I dedicate my professional life to the success of my clients and the satisfaction of their parents (when applicable).

I build professional relationships based on respect, trust, and cooperation, allowing me to bridge the separation between the positions in which clients find themselves and those in which they would prefer to be. I also cultivate self-esteem, confidence, patience, consistency, and problem-solving skills to improve academic performance. I always relate the importance of education to both personal and professional pursuits to create interest and passion for learning.

Above all, I help clients to relax and to realize their full potentials. They often tell me that they are thankful for my open, honest, and supportive demeanor, which allows them to more easily share their thoughts and feelings. They are also inspired to share positive feedback with their colleagues, educators, classmates, and parents. Parents often tell me that they appreciate the thorough communication I provide and admire the influence I have on their children.

Our sessions are an investment in your future; not only will you learn information and techniques necessary to excel at your studies, but you will also gain a firm educational foundation that will serve both your personal and professional lives for years to come. I create the most meaningful experiences in my life by inspiring clients to achieve success. I encourage you to form your own opinion about this opportunity by contacting me now. Let's get to work!
