Steve, the gentleman that matched us with a tutor was great. He listened and understood our needs (probably even better than we did). The tutor we were matched with has been better than any other and I'm hopeful our girls' grade will be improving. The convienence of the online tutoring has helped as well and with no downside. Thumbs up.
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.
It is very difficult to find an AP calculus tutor who knows what here she is talking about. Then I had heard of Arbor Tutors through a friend and called them. The tutor met me at the library every Saturday for 12 weeks and completely turned around my grades. I went from a C average to a high B+ and now I'm starting to get A's. Yay for Arbor Tutors!
Got a tutoring package for my two kids and we have been extremely happy
We did in-person tutoring at the library for math. Our tutor was excellent. Arbor Tutors is just amazing!
Did a great job editing my novel.
Elite responded quickly and Curtis was sent out the next day to my home, well dressed and educated. Always was nervous about having a stranger in my home but Curtis was very trustworthy. I told the manager that Curtis was one of the most professional people I have met. English writing and Spanish tutoring has never been this easy
Rani helps my third grade daughter once a week. They have been working together for about 6 months and I have seen a lot of improvements in my daughter's reading and writing skills.
Tim was a great teacher for me! He was easy to talk to,understood my questions, and helped me improve my weak points. After working with him for a few months, I was able to understand a lot of the material provided in the SAT test and improve a lot on my practice test. Overall, Tim is a great teacher for learning how to improve your English , especially to prepare for SAT test.
Laura is an exceptional teacher. She is patient and knowledgeable. English is my second language and Laura was helpful and patient throughout. She is very organized and easy to communicate with. Laura provided valuable feedback and strategies to help me excel in academic writing . I feel confident in my writing and speaking skills because of Laura.
Fantastic Mandarin teacher. She is great with children of all ages. My kids have improved greatly in their reading, writing and speaking of Mandren. Most importantly they enjoy learning.
Darya tutored and advised me throughout my senior year of high school and my first year at college. Having Darya by my side throughout the stress of a year and a half journey has had a significant impact in my life. Although Darya's main responsibility was to tutor me for my Advanced Placement (AP) Literature class, she went above and beyond to what I expected of an English tutor. She helped me find my inner voice as a writer through tutoring me about grammar, organization, and vocabulary. She also helped boost my confidence as an underprivileged Latina studying in the STEM field as a computer science major at the University of California: Santa Cruz. I passed both my AP Government and AP Literature classes and tests which is significant because both required a heavy amount of analytical writing; I graduated high school with honors and with the highest cumulative grade point average (GPA), 3.7, at any time of my academic career. One week before I was going to take my SAT for the third time, I mentioned to Darya that I was struggling understanding a large portion of the Math section of the test. To my surprise, she was thoroughly capable skilled in tutoring me in math, along with English. In less than seven days, Darya was able to successfully prepare me for my last SAT test; subsequently, my SAT score improved by more than 100 points. If we had more time to go through the preparation book, I could have further surpassed this amazing progress. Another aspect in which Darya supported me in my college application and preparation process was in guiding me to refine my college essays for both private and public universities: as a result, I was accepted to more than half of the colleges that I applied to. Finally, I am most grateful for Darya and her efforts towards my success because of the high number of scholarships that I received in the second semester of my senior year in high school. Through Darya’s excellent editing and writing abilities, I was able to accumulate more than $200,000 in scholarship rewards from four different organizations. I could never have imagined this much triumph before meeting Darya; without these scholarship awards, I would have been forced to work during my breaks and during school to afford a college education. Now, all that I have to worry about is learning as much as I can while I am at UCSC. On account of my strong achievements in less than a year with Darya, I still utilize the many tips and lessons that she has instilled in me. As a result of this, I excelled in my classes at UCSC with a cumulative GPA of 3.6. Because of my outstanding academic success in the first quarter of college, I was exclusively invited by the university to apply to the College Scholars Program; this two-year program selects 20 students out of about 200 students applying from each college at UCSC to help give them meaningful academic challenges. Not only do I recognize Darya as one of the most significant people in my life because of my solid academic accomplishments, but also due to the genuine passion she holds to be sure that her tutees succeed. As her tutee, she constantly reminded me of my own abilities to encourage my confidence. We are still in contact today which further demonstrates her enthusiasm for her tutees. She is evidently benevolent, motivated, and intelligent, and I highly recommend her tutoring and guidance talents to any student who is fortunate enough to be her tutee.
I really enjoy having French classes with Kathleen! She is very knowledgeable of the language and have good learning methods and materials. I`m mostly focused on conversation and we practice a lot. Also, she is very sweet and is a very nice person to have classes with! I definitively recommend her!
I met Scott at Mills College, where I am getting my MFA. I desperately needed help with my writing. My grades were slipping and I just couldn’t get a grip on the composition process. Scott and I met and went over a writing assignment I was working on. Wow, he is a deep person and knows so much!!! He is very detailed as well. I learned from Scott that writing is first about learning how to think critically. He makes criticism into an artform. He helped me develop and find my thesis and felt as we worked together over time that he opened my mind and helped me gain mastering the composition process. He really is talented. It’s no wonder he is a master of literature!!!
Hope has been tutoring my daughter in French, she has proven to be knowledgable, thorough and dependable. She brings a lot of extras to the sessions; like experiences with the French culture, and extra worksheets and study materials, etc.
