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!
Professional, on time. John is tutoring my 10 year old son in math, specifically, common core math. John is very patient which is what my son needs. I try to help him but I lose my patience which frustrates both of us. I am glad John is able to help and I hope my son will improve his math skills. John has tutored Christopher twice only so I hope this review is helpful. So far, I would recommend John.
Arbor Tutors advised which was the best calculus class my son needed to take. After my son made changes to his schedule, it was not necessary to have the level of tutoring we had purchased. Arbor Tutors returned the money quickly and without question. The tutor we spoke with was highly knowledgeable. I would recommend this company.
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!
Both of my children (12 and 10 years old) have been with Marion for over one year for French private tutoring, and they love her!! Marion is a very dedicated educator, and French teacher, my children and I love/enjoy her teaching methods and approaches, which incorporate games, songs, movies and daily interaction objects, people that my children could relate to their day-to-day life. She is firm and extremely friendly, which is an excellent teacher would be.
I am a non native English speaker. I was struggling with my comprehensive (thesis) paper. Laura helped me brain storm ideas for my paper, gave me constructive feedback, and helped me edit the paper. She spent a lot of one on one time with me and constantly stayed in touch with me. Laura is very caring and genuine and it shows in her work. She wasn't quite familiar with my topic (I am in healthcare), but she went above and beyond trying to understand what I was writing about so that she could help me best way possible. She is a great editor and a very sincere person. I am graduating this June and I may not need her help for academic papers, but I will always come to her for any writing and editing help. I will recommend her to everyone!
When I'm looking for a tutor, what I care most about is interpersonal skills. Lucky me! Ingrid is warm and engaging; she creates a relaxed atmosphere for the nerve-jangling practice of speaking (or trying to speak) in a second language.
Rafa is a great Spanish teacher. During our lessons we typically talk the whole time about various subject matter. Rafa then sends homework and has his students work on grammar/vocabulary before class begins. This is a really great way to learn and very helpful for anyone who is trying to learn Spanish.
My son is looking forward to his tutoring session.
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.
Rani is a great tutor. We love working with her. My daughter improved a lot with writing. I highly recommend Rani and I look forward to work with her in the next school years.
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.
Arbor Tutors is a very well-run company. They hire the best tutors and are able to help you.
Got a tutoring package for my two kids and we have been extremely happy
I wholeheartedly recommend Laurence. She's a superb French teacher. She tailors her lessons to her students' educational needs, has a wonderful teaching style and is very patient. Laurence makes learning fun by incorporating different types of media and topics into her lessons. I enjoy learning about the French while learning French. If you're looking for a French tutor, contact Laurence et en avant.
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.
Anybody who has the good fortune to have Mr. Wachhorst assist them on a project will be enormously thrilled! He is brilliant, professional and a pleasure to work with! Mr. Wachhorst has helped me with a variety of projects and I love working with him!!!
Viktor is an excellent math tutor. I came to him having not seen any math for eight years, and having not actually learned much of the math I had taken in high school. He started at the beginning and patiently made his way through all of the material I had to cover. Even though I started my tutoring really late in the game for the my test date, he made a big effort to meet with me as often as I needed to and tried to teach me as much as possible in time for my test date. He is really patient and very encouraging, and does an excellent job of explaining concepts that are confusing to people. I have had a lot of math tutors over the years, and Viktor is by far the best one. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
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.
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.
Vanessa has a great personality! She uses her knowledge of math in a variety of ways that significantly helps a persons comprehension. I am looking forward to working with her in the future.
