My son needed help with Spanish and Algebra. I thought Chemistry might become an issue later on. Eric found him a tutor able to do all 3! Allyssa has been great helping with everything. It was great not having to find separate tutors. Allyssa has been so patient and kind helping my son get back on schedule after his surgery. We love her!

Completely worth it is all I have to say. John explained many parts of the ACT, and explained how to understand, see, and handle the problem. A fantastic tutor to work with

I have had the priviledge of having several tutoring sessions from MATHMAN and what a great experience it's been. I can't tell you how much I've learned from him and the amount of understanding I've gained from our sessions! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND him as a tutor and teacher!

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 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!!!

I have been taking lessons from Lillian for a few weeks now. I absolutely love her teaching style. Each 1-hour class is intense and afterwards I feel like I have gotten to the next level. But more importantly it spurs me on to want to learn more. She is patient and kind, but quick to see where you are making a mistake and drilling you on that area so you rapidly start doing it right and forget your wayward ways. For anyone who is interested in learning Mandarin I highly recommend Lillian as a tutor!

Jennifer is an excellent tutor. The results she gets are absolutely impressive and I believe it's because she understands that different kids sometimes need a different approach when working on problem solving and test taking. She knows how to get through to students. She's also extremely professional and wasn't late once! Do not hesitate working with her - she's remarkable!

Ruth was an invaluable resource proofreading and editing my latest writing project. She is smart, listens well, and patient. The quality of her work is excellent, she is professional, responsive, and turned things around for me when promised (ahead of schedule, actually). She was a calming influence and an excellent sounding board as I discussed ideas with her. I would, without reservation, recommend her to others.

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 would highly recommend Dan to anyone looking for a quality tutor who is devoted to making sure your child fully understands the subject that he has been hired to teach. He was always prompt and was also very accomodating. Our daughter was having difficulty in AP Physics and asked for help. Fortunately, we hired Dan. She ended up getting an A in the class. He also helped her improve her ACT score. We could not have been happier with the quality of tutoring that Dan provided. He is a true professional in every sense of the word.

Matthew worked with both my daughter and son tutoring. He spent several of my daughter's high school years helping with her AP classes in English and History, and assisted her through the beginning of her career at UC Berkeley. He worked on college applications, proof reading, and goal clarification with my son and came out with successful applications on a tight turn around time.
