We tried several other tutors before Arbor and still my daughter had a low SAT results. Then I hired Arbor Tutors and was able to help us just in time. My daughter got a SAT score far above our expectations in a very short period of time. Finally found exactly what we are looking for here. We will be working with them again for my son's upcoming SAT.
Kiran is an excellent educator. I don’t even have know where to begin with the amount of help he has given me throughout our tutoring sessions. Before I was tutored by Kiran, I was overwhelmed with all the entry exams for the ACT and SAT, I was not performing well on the math sections so my parents thought it would be best to get me a tutor. Kiran helped me set up a schedule of where we would meet every weekend. The whole month of August every weekend I would be tutored for around 10 hours. It seems like a lot of time putting into tutoring and a lot of hard work, but Kiran made it feel so easy. He set up lessons custom to my style of learning and went over every math formula until I understood and memorized it. He helped me push myself to my best ability, and eventually made math one of my favorite subjects. My ultimate goal was to score higher on my act Math, and Kiran helped me score 6 points higher on my math section. (Which is very difficult and rare to have that big of a jump in test scores). With the help of Kiran, my ACT score went up, I got into the University I planned on going to, and I received a Merit Scholarship from that University. The math Kiran taught me was specific to the ACT, however it has helped me so much more further than that. Such as in the classroom it’s so much more easier for me to understand and catch on to math, I am now able to comprehend problems and with the memorization of formulas I am able to test better. His teaching went beyond education, he helped me form confidence and valuing my education. He helped me realize that anything is possible as long as you work hard for it. His morals and teachings have motivated me and helped me reach my academic goal of going to my dream school on an academic scholarship.
I have never used a tutor before, so I was apprehensive to use one recommended to me by my fellow student for my ACT. Having sat them before I really needed help to ensure I could raise my score. So I engaged Chelsea International. I am flipped over by the level of support I have received from them as a student and now realize what my friend was talking about, no wonder he was always doing so well. My ACT score came in above average at a 28 and I am really pleased. Thank you!
Arielle helped my son achieve a 1340 on his SAT exam - almost a 200 point jump from the PSAT. She was extremely helpful in organizing my son so that he knew exactly how and what to study. This includes test-taking strategies and time-management. Arielle genuinely cared how my son performed on the test and followed up with him after the exam. We would definitely call her again for help with any standardized tests or essays (possibly for college applications :))
My daughter had a wonderful experience with Jayne. Jayne had tutored her in both SAT and ACT math over the past year. She made huge gains in her score and qualified for a merit scholarship because of it. Jayne's patience, kindness and teaching style made a huge difference. We had had students at ASU tutor her before but with Jayne she definitely felt motivated because she didn't want to let her down. Her encouragement did so much to push my daughter to persevere. So thankful we found her!
THE SCORE SPEAKS FOR ITSELF. In March of 2015 my son took his first SAT in the spring semester of his Junior year in High School. He has always had an excellent command of English and had not felt the need to seek additional tutoring in preparation. This first shot at the SAT gave him a Writing score of 690 in the Reading portion (within the 95th percentile) and 660 in the Writing portion (within the 92nd percentile). Although we were pleased with his scores, his college counselor however, had already gotten to know him well by this point and thought that with a little guidance and knowledge of testing techniques there could be room for improvement. She recommended we contact Ms. Flowers who immediately started working with him in anticipation of the next SAT test date just a few months away the following June. They worked diligently meeting about once per week until test day. Test day came along and my son took the test and felt very confident upon completion. The results proved the decision and extra effort to tutor with Ms. Flowers was well worth it. The June test score for Reading jumped 90 points to 780 (scoring in the 99th percentile) and the Writing score jumped 50 points to 710 (scoring in the 96th percentile). This was no coincidence, it was due to Ms. Flowers tutoring. Of note, my son is gifted but must also deal with ADD. She knew exactly how to work with him to get the job done. Thank you Ms. Flowers!
Review pending first session which will be tonight.
MoJoe was my tutor for A&P and I know that my A's would have been B's without his amazing tutoring and encouragement. Recently I took my daughter to MoJoe for Algebra tutoring ... suddenly she doesn't hate math! MoJoe has an amazing ability to teach AND to inspire. A rare combination, in my opinion.
My daughter really likes working with Tina. She was failing Alg II and after two sessions with Tina she passed her next two test and made a 81 on her midterm. Tina was able to present the material in a way that was both understandable and a liitle bit enjoyable. I say enjoyable because my daughter did not realize that she had been studying for an hour during either session.Looks like Tina won't be able to continue tutoring but we really hope she can. My daughter is already a little disappointed that she may have to find a new tutor and is dreading her next test without Tina's help.
We are very pleased to have found Doina to help with Math tutoring for our son. He specifically needed help in Algebra 1 and geometry. Doina is highly qualified to teach these subjects, and she also has a knack for communicating complex math concepts in easy-to-learn and unique ways that appeal to our son. In addition she is always reliable and on time!
FASTrack Tutors & Test Prep brought me into contact with Mark Kover, who is undoubtedly the best tutor that I have ever worked with. I first met Professor Mark as a struggling 8th Grade Math student, almost certain that I was not going to pass the Math course I was taking at the time. Mark was not only able to help me raise my grade to something passable and substantial, but he even helped me earn an A in the course! Since then, I have worked with Mark as needed, and his guidance and advice has been invaluable in many situations. I would highly recommend Mark for ACT Test Prep, as his testing strategies utilize speed and accuracy, which are the skills needed to succeed on the ACT. With his instruction, I was able to raise my ACT score several points from my previous attempt in merely one weeks time! That ACT score aided me into being accepted to all of the colleges I was considering attending. When it comes to the ACT, Mark will undoubtedly give any student better results than if they were to study with a variety of other tutors, or spend hours attending large group ACT Prep Seminars. One of the most important traits Mark possesses that makes him a great teacher is that he cares about his students' lives outside of their Math Textbook. This makes him not only a tutor, but also a friend and a mentor. He understands that academic success can correlate with success in areas of life outside the classroom. This is an understanding that not all teachers have, and I can say from personal experience that Mark goes above and beyond to make a difference in other's lives.
My son was having a hard time with understanding algebra 1 and we were also always arguing about homework - no peace in this situation. He also did NOT want a tutor. Within two weeks, he changed his attitude because the tutor was really getting him to understand algebra. The twice a week sessions got him through all the homework too, so my son got his video game privileges back! THAT made him happy!! Now going into geometry we are still keeping the same tutor and schedule. Our tutor also helps with prepping for tests, keeping our son's backpack organized and structure for writing his English papers. Our son also thinks his tutor is "cool". All and all this is a great thing for our family.
Amy has been a wonderful pre-Algebra tutor for our 8th grade daughter. She is very friendly and knowledgeable and is able to sit down with our daughter and patiently go over homework. She comes for an hour two times a week. Within a matter of weeks of hiring her, our daughter's grade went from a D to B! We owe a lot of this improvement to Amy. I highly recommend her!
