Math tutoring for a third grade student who is 6 months below grade level. We have had 5 sessions and he is already doing better.The tutor works with my grandson 2 times per week 1 hour each. She is excellent!
John Linneball helped me with SAT tutoring, especially in the math sections. The sessions took place at my house every week, but if ever there was a problem, communication was made easy through email. He really helped me and we clocked in many hours of math exercises. Not to mention, he gave me suggestions on what I should work on during my alone time.
John Bertinetti helped me study for the GMAT exam over the summer of 2017 with concentrated sessions to review GMAT Quant. John got me started on a study path by sharing info about the best study resources for my problem areas, and would meet with me once or twice a week to go over key Quant problems that I needed help solving. John is an ideal tutor for students who are good at keeping themselves on track without a structured curriculum. Great value, flexible scheduling, and clear explanations of problems are all huge wins with him. About halfway through the summer, I realized that I needed a structured class and more discipline to keep myself on schedule, so I supplemented my study sessions with John with an independent online class with a live teacher. Key lessons w/John: John is all about understanding the concepts behind a problem before sharing tricks; his method is great for learners like me who need to understand the math conceptually and don't want to just memorize formulas. We did a lot of work on combinatorics and probability, which were my challenge areas. He was a great and affordable supplemental resource for me beyond the class. Results: I went from a 580 on my Manhattan GMAT diagnostic to a 730 score on the actual GMAT after 3 months of light study followed by 2 months of intense study.
MathMan was wonderful. He came to the house prepared and always on time with a plan for the day. I would recommend him to any family of some math tutoring.
Minok is an excellent math tutor for my 8th grader. My daughter feels comfortable with her, their communication is great, and Minok really cares about my daughter succeeding in math. She comes prepared and on time. I highly recommend her.
I am super thrilled that Mr. Young is tutoring our son. In this technology induced Math learning environment I felt that my son was learning how to use the gadgets to get the answers right. I am glad to see that with Mr. Young's assistance we are now focusing on learning the subject and more importantly laying the right foundation!
Sowmya is a very capable, perhaps outstanding teacher. My son gained an entire grade from her tutoring in Calculus.
Yevgeny tutored my son for about 6 month to prepare him for SAT Subject test Math 2 and the Math portion of SAT. My son liked his style of teaching - giving small hints to guide him to find the right answer. In addition Yevgeny was able to explain complicated mathematical concepts in simple words. I strongly recommend Yevgeny as Math tutor.
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)!
John-Michael is the professional tutor I needed in my life. Math was such a dull subject and he brings it to life with his enthusiasm and curiosity. I genuinely fell in love with math! My Pre-Calculus grade shot up to an A (from my dark past of a D) after working with him for 1.5 months. He's refined my work ethic and respect for this subject and I couldn't ask for anything better. I continue to see him every week and its always a pleasure!
We did in-person tutoring at the library for math. Our tutor was excellent. Arbor Tutors is just amazing!
Pio is very good at catering the lesson to my needs - where I am at in the learning curve, and helping fill in any gaps in my knowledge of mathematics. He also helps create a plan and gives homework to accomplish my goal.
Michael is an extremely talented tutor. He worked with my daughter on SAT tutoring and college essays. He is personable, very enthusiastic and wonderful to work with. I highly recommend him.
Leo tutored me for PDE and Actuarial Science courses. Not only he helped me getting good marks (+30%), he also turned study materials very interesting. After spending time with him, you feel like you can be A+ student like him! If you do tutoring session with him, ask him to make study timeline with you. He is really good at getting you organized.
Back in 2011, Michael was recommended to us by my sister who enlisted his help to tutor her son who attended Head Royce High School. She said he was excellent and could tutor on any math or science subjects. Because I had a special needs child, I asked if he would allow me to sit in on a couple sessions with my son and he obliged. I was immediately taken by how meticulous, patient, and tuned in he was to what the student needed. With his help, our son did great in Algebra II and Geometry. We then sent our daughter to Michael for Biology, Algebra II, Geometry, and Honors Chemistry. Due to her fondness for math and hope to be competitive when applying for a computer science major at a good college, she felt she needed to accelerate her math curriculum. Therefore, over the summer between her sophomore and junior years at Piedmont High School, she was able to accelerate her math level by a year by taking Pre-Calculus at a community college while being guided by Michael's expert tutoring skills. He is now tutoring her in AP Calculus AB and Honors Physics. Michael has helped our daughter gain mastery in all these subjects and get the highest grades possible in these subjects. Both my children have found Michael funny, helpful, friendly, extremely smart, gentle, encouraging, gives relevant additional work if he finds they needed more help in a certain area, and a pleasure to work with. In addition, I have recommended Michael to nearly a dozen friends that have asked me if I know of a good tutor and they have all been very pleased. We feel very fortunate that someone with such incredible expertise in so many subject areas lives only 5 minutes from our home.
