ALL went well. It was a great experience for my grandson who totally benefited from tutoring the night before his geometry exam. His tutor was very knowledgable and extremely patient. He simply did a great job. I would not hesitate to use him again. What a wonderful find Elite Home Tutoring turned out to be!!!

John has been tutoring my 16 year old daughter in prep for her SAT test. He was very flexible in scheduling sessions for Sunday mornings given the heavy schedule my daughter maintains. John's style is very effective in making the material content interesting, light and relatable to a teenager. He uses a good balance of humor and examples that keep her engaged throughout the session. Homework assigned is manageable and not burdensome. John is very intelligent and has a very good grasp of the material content. He provides a professional service and we look forward to the results of my daughter's test.

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.

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.

We hired Dr. K to help my son with pre-calculus. After receiving 1x week tutoring for 1 semester his grade improved from a D- to a C+ and his teacher reported that she was pleased with the significant growth he had made. According to my son "Dr. K is very kind, knowledgeable, reliable, and understanding. He tried to figure out what my learning style was and worked with me. He asked what I was learning and we did problems related to that work." We highly recommend him to others who are struggling in math.

Dr. K was very helpful in tutoring Denise Chenier in math with his patience and teaching. It helped Denise understand math better and also be responsible with her math assignments Dr. K gave her. He is a very patient and kind teacher. My overall rating is a 5 star. Thank you Mr. K for all your help.

Dr. K was not only punctual but also very knowledgeable about the subjects ( calculus and statistic). I was able to pass these classes this summer because of his awesome way to tutor me. I have had tutors in the past but Dr. K is the best among all. I will recommend him to my peers or anyone else.

I have been extremely happy with the tutoring and coaching I received from Arbor Tutors to improve my GMAT score. My overall GMAT score was stuck in the low 600's (and I struggled for months to get it there) but quickly improved to 700s after receiving insightful diagnostic of my strengths/weaknesses followed by a large number of specific tasks to improve my weaknesses. I'm still shocked with the ease and speed with which my tutor was able to help me improve my score. Don't get me wrong, you will be given a large amount of work but the work is focused on what will benefit you the most and help you improve quickly. I strongly recommend tutoring from Arbor Tutors if you are looking to make major improvements on your score. I took a highly regarded GMAT prep course first and although the course was excellent, the personalized training, test taking strategies, in depth explanations, and coaching from Arbor Tutors was orders of magnitude better. I also echo the comments of previous reviewers: Arbor Tutors is invested in your success and provides a wide range of unique resources tailored to your needs to help you get a score far above your expectations. I honestly never thought I had a real chance of scoring above a 90th percentile on the GMAT but Steve at Arbor Tutors showed me how to make this reality.

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.

Minok is an excellent math tutor for my daughter. Beginning of the school year my daughter has had some difficulties with her trig-algebra 2 class. She would like to improve her grade and prepare for finals. Minok came in fully prepared. I really appreciate that she genuinely cares about the student and she spent a lot of time preparing her class ahead of the time. Usually she will check with my daughter with what is on going in her class, and by time of tutoring she came with extra materials and practice to help the kids. By doing tutorial with her once a week, She was able to help my daughter improve her grade from B to an A and so far in the new trimester my daughter has been getting all As in her math test. We are very happy with her and will highly recommend her to all my friends.

Minok is very thoughtful, thorough, and knowledgeable. She began her tutoring of our two kids (3rd and 5th grade) with an assessment exam that allowed her to understand what our kids knew so she could structure an appropriate lesson plan for each of them. Our younger child in particular was so excited to learn more math, but when she took the exam she got upset about making a few mistakes: Minok was very gentle with her and now our she looks forward to every lesson! My wife and I are very happy with how much our children our learning with Minok.

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.

Tim is an amazing teacher! I live in Palo Alto and needed specific help from him with social media posts, my ESL blog, editing, applications, etc. Tim has an amazing abilities to use English at its best.

He was always on time, he had a lot of prepared material, and he was well organized. Compared to other professors that we were in contact I believe that his dedication and effort is very price sensitive. Overall it was very good experience.

My experience with One to One Tutoring and with Tim Gasser has been nothing but excellent. He tutored my son in both 9th and 10th grades for Geometry, Algebra and Chemistry. Since my son was taking honors level courses, the curriculum was quite intense and fast -paced, but Tim seemed extremely familiar with the curriculum and was able to help and support him exactly in the way he needed. He obviously has the knowledge and the experience needed to guide students in high school, especially the ones who are in advanced tracks and AP courses. Tim's punctuality and professionalism are commendable, but what struck us most was the way he personalized the content and his teaching methods to serve my son's specific needs. My son will continue to work with him this year. I can recommend One to One Tutoring without reservation to any parent whose kid needs that little extra help in high school.

We have been working with a math tutor for 5 years (both our daughters) that we found through One-to-One Tutoring. She is fantastic - reliable, flexible and very smart (an MIT grad). Tim Gasser is always extremely responsive to any inquiries and once a match is made, allows us work directly with the tutor which makes scheduling very easy.

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.

Yevgeny tutored my son in Calculus and we are very happy with the results. My son didn't even like the idea of getting tutored; After I convinced him that he needs to get some help, he tried a couple of other tutors; Yevgeny was the first one he was happy with; Yevgeny is a no-nonsense type of person; He is knowledgeable and focused on getting the student to understand the concepts; I would highly recommend him.

Yevgeny tutored my son for about 6 month to prepare him for SAT Subject test Math 2 and the Math portion of SAT. My son liked his style of teaching - giving small hints to guide him to find the right answer. In addition Yevgeny was able to explain complicated mathematical concepts in simple words. I strongly recommend Yevgeny as Math tutor.

Michael is an absolute wizard at providing essay help. He makes the process effortless, and surprisingly really fun and motivating. He has a unique skill to understand his students quickly and convert their experiences to meaningful stories that showcase their personality and positive characteristics. Michael's true gift is his ability to create inciting stories. I can not describe how highly I would recommend Michael for essay help. Furthermore, he was extremely professional and respectful of my time. Michael helped me write an essay for business school. He helped me with every single step of the way. We first started with idea generation where we discussed things I could potentially write about. He then helped me pin point a story to tell, and worked to show me how concrete examples highlighted the major themes that I wanted to conveys to the reader. He then helped me build a very detailed outline that was perhaps the most valuable portion of our work together. I turned an initial draft along with pages on pages of ideas. Michael helped me re-write my ideas in exactly the way I wanted to get them across to the reader. Michael then continued to edit and condense my work while not sacrificing anything from my message. Michael found a way to help me turn my initial drafts, (that was in no shape to submit) into an a really great essay that I am very proud of. In the end I could not be more happy with Michael's work. Whether it is idea generation, building an outline, editing your writing, or making an essay read and simply sound better, this is the guy to go to.

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.

Laura has tutored my two boys writing/reading in the summer and during the school year for about 3 yrs now. She's a wonderful tutor; always on time, organized, very patient and attentive with the students, and most importantly, knowledgeable in her subjects. She shows up with teaching materials, gives them lessons and corrects their work. Periodically she gives me feedback on their progress. My boys have done very well in school, and enjoy writing. One additional note, my boys tell me that her phone never rings during lesson, she turns it off so there'll be no interruption during lesson. That impresses me.

We have known Laura for more than ten years. She came highly recommended by a friend. Her son was able to read because of Laura’s teaching. Laura tutored my son from 2nd grade to 8th grade on reading comprehension and social studies. Laura is always on time and prepared. She is also very flexible and adaptable according to my son’s needs and learning style because she always has her students’ best interest in mind.

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.

The best part of working with Angela is that she is very careful about teaching you in the simplest way possible. As an International student junior in computer science classes in college, I had a hard time understanding the lectures in class, so i would get weekly tutoring from Angela. She is not like an irresponsible tutor who will just tell you how to solve your homework and be done. Instead, she asks you a lot of questions and leads you to think until you get the right answer. It is really awesome. Also, Angela's bilingual teaching is great. She is very fluent in Chinese and we mostly used Chinese in class because I am a Chinese international student.

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)!
