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!

Ben is absolutely amazing! He has an astonishing amount of knowledge and a way of explaining and teaching that makes sense to me in a way that no instructor has ever done. My personal goal, as impractical as it may seem, was to be able to sing with a healthy vibrato and by the end of our first 30 minute lesson, I was able to sing a note with a healthy vibrato. Something as simple as “feeling spinning a ping pong ball in the back of the throat” made me able to produce this beautiful and rich sound. This is a small first step but a huge achievement that I was not able to achieve with months of lessons with other instructors in the past. This gave me such a rewarding feeling and gave me so much ambition to practice and improve. Bravo Ben! Bravo!

He was super helpful in helping me understand questions that I needed help with, and answered in depth. He explained everything really well.

Ben has helped me tremendously over just a few lessons. Everything I thought I was supposed to do in order to sing properly was pretty much wrong. He is able to explain techniques very clearly in order for me to improve my singing voice. It has not been easy for me but he is very patient as well as demanding in order for me to reach my full potential. I have and will continue to recommend him to anybody looking to improve their voice. Excellent instructor!

I have taught over 30 math students at all levels, elementary through high school and college, algebra 1 and 2, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus and standardized test math (ACT, SAT, GRE, GMAT, ASVAB, GED).

I have turned D's and F's into B's and A's. Let me show you how successful you or your child can be!

As you can see I’ve written a review for Matthew regarding my daughters success (her test was last year) so I’d like to write one for my son also. My son was not driving at the time and Matthew agreed to drive to our home and teach him for an additional nominal fee. My son also took multiple tutoring sessions with Matthew and learned something new every time. He felt confident going into the test, confident in his ability to complete the exam and do well on it. Matthew takes his time with each individual and works with their specific needs. My children needed help in different areas of the ACT and Matthew was more than capable of helping them in those areas. My sons ACT score also went up 4 points after working with Matthew! I can’t say enough how professional, kind and thorough he is.

Like any other subject, Algebra can be learned. It takes only a few simple rules to master the subject--that's right! The rest is just plain old practice and time you commit to doing so; and/or, sometimes, you just need that someone close by for guidance and help. I can help you!

90mins/lesson + travel fee; travel fee waived for 120min lessons.

(IMPORTANT: Please do NOT book any lessons without confirming with me if we have a match in schedule. I have other obligations besides tutoring so if you do not have a flexible schedule, I recommend other tutors that will match your budget and schedule.)

I️ was connected to Rod through a tutoring agency. I️ contacted the agency because I️ recently graduated college and wanted to get into grad school but had not taken a math class since the 10th grade. The school I️ was applying to needed a minimum math score for the GRE, which I️ knew would be a enormous stretch for me. Additionally, I️ always had trouble with math and knew I️ would need a tutor to re-teach me everything I️ needed to know to get the score I️ wanted. Initially, the agency connected me to 3 different tutors who were all absolutely terrible! Sometimes they didn’t even know how to answer sample questions in the workbooks! Finally, I was connected to Rod. After our first meeting I️ knew he would be the one who would help me improve. After a month of intense work with him my GRE math scores actually improved a full 12 points! Beyond that, he literally taught me math in a way in which I️ actually understood it. Before I️ just thought I couldn’t learn, but now I’m confident that I️ actually retained everything and it even made sense! I’m so grateful to have met Rod because before him I️ truly felt hopeless. I️ would definitely recommend Rod to anyone who is looking to drastically improve their math skills. If you’re like me and hate math, can’t grasp it, and even feel like you just can’t learn it, then definitely contact Rod now! You won’t be sorry!

I initially reached out to Rod for Algebra 1 review because I felt that my daughter lacked a solid foundation in algebra. However, after a couple of sessions, we have decided to switch gears toward geometry with Rod’s recommendation. Throughout the geometry lessons, algebra practice was incorporated. I am happy that not only did Rod tailor his lessons to my daughter’s goals but also he gave her a lot of encouragement. My daughter found it extremely helpful that she got to explain and discuss with Rod, which made lessons interactive and real learning. Now going back to school, my daughter feels confident, thanks to Rod!

Rod worked with my daughter weekly for a couple of months leading up to the NYC state tests. With Rod's careful, concerted planning and diligence, my daughter's score went from 2.4 on the 7th grade Math state test, to a 2.8 in 8th grade, which equates to a move from below the 50th percentile, to between the 50th and 75th percentile. My daughter's in-school math instruction was chaotic and disjointed, and I attribute her improvement to Rod's intervention.

I taught Math at CPS and in the North Suburbs of Chicago. I believe, my strengths are patience and the ability to explain material in a clear, simple way.

Our son was tutored in math for 3 years while in middle school. Julia's tutoring provided a great foundation for his high school curriculum. It allowed him to finish one year of a college level math class while in high school.
Our daughter was also tutored while in elementary school. Math is her favorite subject in school. We really liked Julia's teaching approach,great communication skills , and her patience .

Why TakeLessons?

Algebra Lessons

As your child gets older, the math they learn in school gets more difficult. While each new skill builds upon a skill that was learned previously, once your child gets to Algebra, you might start to see him struggling to figure out the concepts. If your child seems to be having a hard time figuring out his Algebra homework and you've seen some poor test grades, it might be time to think about getting him some extra help. Algebra tutoring from TakeLessons is a great way to help your child get caught up with the rest of his class as well as stay on track for the remainder of the school year.

The Benefits Of Algebra Tutoring

Algebra tutoring has many benefits for kids in that it's one-on-one instruction that gives them the opportunity to ask questions and get extra help when they need it. In larger classrooms, it's not always easy for the teacher to offer the help that's needed. While some kids are naturally good at math, others require a little bit more assistance to help them understand it. Algebra tutoring gives your child the opportunity to go back to the beginning of the course if need be, when it first started to get hard for him, and build upon those concepts that were learned early on.

What's Covered in Algebra Tutoring

Algebra tutoring with TakeLessons will follow the curriculum your child's teacher uses. Our tutors will provide information that's designed to back up what your child learns in the classroom, but it will be tailored to your child's needs. You'll find your child's tutor to have exceptional knowledge in Algebra and whether they cover linear equations or factoring polynomials, the material will help your child learn Algebra at a much quicker pace than a classroom setting alone.

It can be difficult for a child who struggles with Algebra while the rest of his class seems to be catching on quickly. That's why many parents, just like you, choose Algebra tutoring as a way to help their child maintain the self-confidence that's necessary for excellence in academics.

Some benefits of working with a TakeLessons Algebra tutor include: 
• Algebra Tutoring sessions 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 our Algebra tutoring professionals are dedicated to your child's success.

You and your child will be so thrilled that you made the decision to start tutoring, which you'll see makes a difference even on the first report card. For more information about our Algebra tutoring services, contact us today!
