"Sam explained each concept very clearly, and it was easy for my son to digest. I really see my son's improvement. Sam is professional, patient, and responsive. My son loves working with her! "

"It is hard to find a good English teacher, but James is excellent. He knows the elements of good writing and can present abstract topics really well. James never gives away answers. He directs by asking insightful questions so students learn to become critical thinkers. James has taught all my three kids, and I can’t be more pleased with their results. If you are looking for a tutor, look no more. Hire Take Note! "

-Bonnie Y., Scarsdale, New York

Music Lessons

"We were looking for a fun, enthusiastic, piano teacher to come to our house to teach piano to our nine year old daughter, and we found her! She is always smiling and encouraging; our daughter is really responding to her teaching method. She is also very flexible in terms of fitting with our schedule and generally a terrific find! We definitely recommend her and Take Note! "

-Deborah S., White Plains, New York

"Michelle has an overwhelmingly positive attitude toward teaching. She arrives at every lesson excited and upbeat, and this keeps Sophie engaged and ready to learn. She uses positive reinforcement to build Sophie’s confidence at the keyboard, while at the same time gently guiding her in areas where she needs work. Sophie ends every lesson eager to practice her new songs, thanks to the enthusiasm Michelle instills in her, and we’re thrilled with the progress our daughter has made under Michelle’s direction. "

-Christie K., New York, New York

Test Preparation & College Entry

"This is a great tutoring company! Extremely professional and meticulously run, this service has been a great support for my son during his ACT preparation. Rathini, my son’s instructor, is an outstanding educator, punctual, reliable and very caring. Take Note is very much worth the money, with quality service and outstanding educational support. Great experience! Highly recommend!"

-Diane M., Brooklyn, New York

"Our daughter worked with James directly for several months prior to taking the June ACT and as a result of the lessons (including one-on-one sessions and follow-up work), her score jumped 10 points! I highly recommend James and his team!"

-Janet Z., Saint Simons Island, Georgia

"With James’ help, I went up 500 points from my previous PSAT score. The tips and tools he provided enabled me to exceed my SAT score expectations. James has helped me through not only the SAT process, but the college essay writing process as well. I have met with James regularly and am always highly satisfied with the individual attention he provides. James has made applying to colleges significantly less stressful and much more effective as he is always able to guide my essay in the right direction."

-Aris H., New York, New York

"I hired Take Note to tutor my daughter for the ACT. Ariel was professional and patient with my daughter. She was always on time and she explained the material in a manner that worked for my daughter. I am pleased to say my daughter’s ACT score increased 5 points. She called me in a panic to share the news. We are so excited! My daughter is already talking about taking the ACT again. Thanks to Take Note, she now has the confidence and feels she can increase her score!"

-Sebrena B., Zion, Illinois
