Thanks Eric our SAT tutor was great!
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.
I had to take the GMAT after having taken the exam a couple of times before Arbor Tutors. Then I had heard of Arbor Tutors through a friend. I must say I am extremely impressed with the quality of service from the first phone call through the tutoring sessions. They hooked me up with a team of tutors who were able to help assess my gaps and arrange a game plan so that I could be more effective the next time I took the exam. That is the reason why everybody trusts Arbor Tutors.
I spent several months working with Grace through some intermediate mandarin. Really great tutor. She will also text you outside of the tutoring to keep you engaged and make sure you are doing your homework!
John is an extremely conscientious, thoughtful, and helpful LSAT tutor. I turned to John after months of self-study (and putting off the LSAT again and again because I didn't feel ready). He helped me wrap my head around some of the trickier LR problems and also had a great way to think about LG that made something just click. The amount of work John put in prepping for our tutoring sessions really blew me away. He came to each session prepared, had plenty of materials to suggest, and had a clear plan for each session. Furthermore, he's extremely accessible over email and text. If I had a tough practice section and felt panicked or if I had any questions around strategies or approach, I knew I could email John and he'd answer my questions promptly. John really cares about his students and their successes and I'd highly recommend him as an LSAT tutor!
My daughter worked with Mathman Tutoring when she was in high school. She found his tutoring to be very helpful in understanding concepts that she hadn't quite gotten in class. It was very convenient to have him come to our house. I would recommend his services to my friends.
Lillian has been tutoring my daughter in Mandarin, both speaking and writing for about six months through weekly 1 hour sessions at our home. Lillian has an upbeat and warm personality and is passionate about teaching. I am impressed at how she mixes up the lesson so that my fidgety 7 year old remains engaged the entire time. She uses a variety of print, audio and video materials. She focuses on proper technique in speaking and writing while always remaining positive and encouraging. We are so lucky to have found Lillian, and my daughter's interest in learning Mandarin has only grown!
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.
Anish did a great job in helping me learn Math by properly giving me the instruction and practice I needed. I saw results soon after our tutoring sessions!
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.
Yevgeny helped me with business calculus class. This class was extremely important for me to pass as most 4 year colleges I was trying to get into wanted me to take it. During the 16 week semester, Yevgeny would come twice a week to help me with my homework and go over each chapter in depth. We would spend almost two hours each session on different problems and he would show me how to do each one. However, he doesn't do each problem for you but instead would have me do the problem on my own and give me help if I needed it. He made sure I understood each chapter we would go over before going onto the next. Yevgeny is a great person who really cares about the success of those he is tutoring. He understands many different math courses and is really smart. Without his help I wouldn't have passed my class and gone on to transfer to my 4 year college. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of help in any math course.
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.
I had to find a tutor right away for SAT exam and Arbor Tutors was able to come through for me.
It has been four years since I have been in school. I jumped back where I left off Precal and thanks to Pio I am doing a lot better in class and not struggling. He is great to work with. He explains the problem very thoroughly and makes it easy to understand. I went from fours of homework to 1 hour. Highly recommend.
Got a tutoring package for my two kids and we have been extremely happy
Aanchal was a great SAT tutor and I had a really great experience working with her! She created a customized study plan that helped me reach my target score and then coached me through the college admissions process, which helped me get accepted to Cornell University.
Ron has been providing excellent tutoring for AP Calculus BC.
Ellie tutored my daughter Jessica for several months for the writing and reading sections of the SAT. Jessica learned grammar and vocabulary that she had not been taught in high school and she learned speed reading with greater comprehension. As a bonus, Jessica felt her newly learned writing skills carried over to better grades in High School classes and improved her college application essays. Jessica really appreciated the opportunity to work with Ellie to gain the confidence to perform well on the SAT. As a result, Jessica earned a very high score on the SAT and was accepted to the University of California in San Diego. I highly recommend Ellie as a tutor for the SAT.
I would not hesitate to recommend Arbor Tutors to all of my friends and family. I wish we would've started with them in the beginning. Very good service with excellent tutors.
Working with Ryan has been, and continues to be, an excellent experience. Not only is he knowledgeable in everything he teaches, but he’s also flexible with scheduling and valuable mentor in multiple subject matters. Great tutor overall!
