Professional, on time. John is tutoring my 10 year old son in math, specifically, common core math. John is very patient which is what my son needs. I try to help him but I lose my patience which frustrates both of us. I am glad John is able to help and I hope my son will improve his math skills. John has tutored Christopher twice only so I hope this review is helpful. So far, I would recommend John.

Arbor Tutors advised which was the best calculus class my son needed to take. After my son made changes to his schedule, it was not necessary to have the level of tutoring we had purchased. Arbor Tutors returned the money quickly and without question. The tutor we spoke with was highly knowledgeable. I would recommend this company.

Both of my children (12 and 10 years old) have been with Marion for over one year for French private tutoring, and they love her!! Marion is a very dedicated educator, and French teacher, my children and I love/enjoy her teaching methods and approaches, which incorporate games, songs, movies and daily interaction objects, people that my children could relate to their day-to-day life. She is firm and extremely friendly, which is an excellent teacher would be.

John helped me raise my GRE score significantly. Working with John helped me gain the skills and tools I needed to reach (just above) my goal score. We studied the content of the GRE but also strategies for approaching problems likely to be found on the GRE, which proved invaluable. John was patient and encouraging throughout our tutoring and always gave me the extra confidence I needed to help me get through tough problems. It’s nice to have someone cheering you on when you’re trying to achieve a score that might seem hard or unachievable. John made the process of studying for the GRE as painless and fun as possible!

Aji has been tutoring our son in Algebra and Pre-Calculus for a few months now. He is really professional, he makes assignments and notes for every chapter which have really helped our son better understand the topics. He has also been helping with his homework and helping him prepare for tests. Our son's grades have improved significantly and he is a lot more confident about Math

Angela has tutored me in introductory spoken Chinese for a few months now, and I am so grateful for her patient expertise. We work extensively on conversational skills and correct pronunciation, which even if you are self learning or in a class, is incredibly valuable and is often under-practiced without one on one tutoring. I highly recommend Angela for Chinese language tutoring.

Since December 2015 Christian has been tutoring my high schooler daughter, who had difficulty with Spanish grammar. Christian is the best tutor we ever had. He is very thorough, and explains grammar very well. He always prepares a lot of grammar exercises in advance, and makes sure that his student not only understood the new grammar concept, but can also use it correctly. He brings a lot of extra materials from different sources, and he also prepares exercises from the textbook that my daughter has to use at school. He really cares about the progress and grades of his students. In "emergencies" his students can count on him as well. Before tests he has always been willing to squeeze in an extra lesson when we ask him, even on Sundays. In addition to all that, he can make a stubborn teenager work. What more could we wish for more?

Kathleen has made a tremendous difference in our son's Spanish skills. He's had a difficult teacher in school this year and Kathleen has helped to build this knowledge, understanding and confidence with both written and verbal work. Our son has said that Kathleen has been a tremendous help to him. She is reliable and I've felt she genuinely wants her students to succeed.

When I'm looking for a tutor, what I care most about is interpersonal skills. Lucky me! Ingrid is warm and engaging; she creates a relaxed atmosphere for the nerve-jangling practice of speaking (or trying to speak) in a second language.

Kristina is a warm, wonderful person who works with my son, a high school senior. She has always been super-nice to work with and pleasant. Her rates for Spanish tutoring are very reasonable. Most importantly, she genuinely cares about meeting my son where he was, finding his needs and trying hard to meet them. I highly recommend her for Spanish tutoring.

Michael has been an invaluable English tutor for our son. He was able to artfully help our son with his college essay, guiding him through the writing process while making sure the essay was in our son's own words. Our son was accepted into his first choice college, partly based on this essay. Even after our son's freshman year of college, Michael continues to be available to tutor him. Michael has delved deeply into understanding our son's writing challenges, identifying specific steps to help him get on the right track. With his insight and gentle manor, Michael has connected well with our son, allowing him to be a very effective tutor. Michael is very responsive and flexible, providing sessions on Skype when our son needs them. Michael has proven to be a top-notch writing tutor for our son.

I hired Scott to help me with writing and composition of my essays for graduate school. I am so happy I met him and that he agreed to work with me. From day one, I realized that my work and ideas were in really good hands. We started working together at the beginning of the school year and he’s been with me every step of the way. My writing has greatly improved, as have both my grades and my personal and original voice, which I never knew I had! I highly recommend Scott. He’s a gem of a tutor and person.

Angela does the best job of explaining concepts for AP/SAT if you are trying to learn something outside of school. We did our tutoring over the computer, but I actually found it more engaging than in person. For example, I was confused about cos (180degrees), because I hadn't learned about it in school yet. Angela's explanation also made 10x more sense than what my math teacher would say. Now I FINALLY understand how to find cos (180degrees)!

I am amazed as to the quality of tutoring I received from Arbor Tutors given the low price. The tutor my daughter had was very sweet and very patient with geometry. You can't ask for a better tutor than the one we got. We chose to do the online tutoring. Five stars all the way.

About

I teach conversational Spanish. I love a good conversation and meeting people. I am a native speaker of Spanish and I know very well the subtleties of This language, its formalities and colloquialisms. In my classes I like to integrate the language and the sociocultural contexts in which it comes alive. To integrate the language with the respective sociocultural and historical contexts in which this life works.
