Our daughter was never very good at taking tests and was having a very difficult time with her Calculus. Her teacher is horrible. Arbor Tutors was able to do an excellent job at getting her caught up and ahead of the class. I agree, these guys are excellent!

Galina is helping my son learn Spanish and she is wonderful! She is prompt, warm, friendly, speaks several languages and so knows how to teach kids trying to learn another language. He looks forward to his lessons with Galina!

Grace is a patient, fun, and dedicated tutor. My two girls enjoy their lessons with Grace. Grace has made it fun for them to learn. They originally started with after-school Chinese lessons at a learning center. Because of the larger classroom size, my kids were not corrected and only learned to copy really well. Grace has corrected their stroke order and established a strong foundation in their reading and writing. We don't speak Mandarin at home so next she will work on their conversation. I am so glad and fortunate to have found Grace!

My 3rd grader enjoyed John's approach, she was happy that he actually helped her to learn some new concepts in the very first visit (abstract nouns - hope, wisdom, joy - "something you cannot put into the box and sell", as John puts it:)! We just started the lessons, so more updates to come. Also, I liked that he came with a work book right away - so I did not have to worry that we have no material to work with.

Youlian's lessons are very well organized and planned, and she has an absolutely fantastic ability to explain the nuances and subtleties of day-to-day Mandarin. Every lesson includes listening comprehension, reading comprehension (I'm just using Pinyin for now but she covers Hanzi as well), and conversation practice, and Youlian always provides me with very helpful feedback.

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)!

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.

I have been taking Spanish lessons from Ms. Price. She is incredibly personable, knowledgeable and helpful. My Spanish skills have soared since I've started with her. Very friendly, she is an excellent teacher. She knows where weak points are and knows how to explain advanced subjects in a way which is very understandable. I am definitely going to continue lessons and I highly recommend Ms. Price to anyone who is seeking to improve their language skills.

MathExpert is always consistent with answering the questions and making sure that the material is understood. He teaches the importance of neatness when solving problems and that is not about how quickly you learn a subject but how much you've learned. He approaches the lessons very pragmatically; helps to connect theory to the practical aspects of execution so that you are actually learning the 'why' behind the work. A big /welcoming smile, patience and professionalism.

It’s a pleasure learning every week with Laura whether we meet at the library, the coffee shop or go for a walk! She is an amazing teacher who quickly identify the area I need to develop and provide the support I need to make good progresses. I strongly recommend her to anyone who would like to learn a new language.

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.

As a pre-med student, with the ultimate goal of attending medical school, I have taken several exams over the years with hopes of achieving grades that would make me a competitive applicant to medical school. The one thing that was missing from my application was a well written personal statement, which unfortunately science classes do not help prepare you for all that well. I have written lab reports and research articles but a story about my life and journey was beyond my writing abilities. Scott absolutely saved the day. His ability to explain the process of writing a story that captivates a reader was fantastic. He spent as much time with me as I needed and helped me write the perfect personal statement for medical school. Scott has helped me more than I could ever repay him and I am positive he will be able to help you with any of your writing needs as well.
