Laura is an exceptional teacher. She is patient and knowledgeable. English is my second language and Laura was helpful and patient throughout. She is very organized and easy to communicate with. Laura provided valuable feedback and strategies to help me excel in academic writing . I feel confident in my writing and speaking skills because of Laura.
I am very impressed with the quality of service I received with Arbor Tutors. This is the best tutoring company I've ever come across.
Georgianne has exceptional ability to build rapport quickly. She is an experienced english teacher who was able to "start at the right place" with our ESL student. She gave our student a list of social phrases that helped her immensely in her adjustment to a US High School. She is helping her with difficult psychology assignments. We can recommend her without reservation to anyone needing tutoring for a high school student.
My son was struggling in his High School French II class. We found Mary Lee mid semester. After a few tutoring sessions he was back on track! She successfully was able to teach him proper grammar, reading, writing and speaking French. And she also was able to keep learning French fun for him! It was easy to schedule tutoring time with her even with his busy schedule. He improved his final grade by 2 letter grades!! I would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone, she truly cares about all her students. I only wish we had found her sooner. :-)
My son has been struggling with his reading comprehension and writing. Kara has been tutoring my son for about 4 months and he has improved so much in class. Kara was really patient with him and professional. Thanks Kara
I was looking for some help with my daughter in math and reading but I am really busy and didn't want to have to take her somewhere and then wait. Kingsfield tutors has been so great! First of all, its convenient. But more importantly, my daughter is very happy. She is doing better in school and understanding concepts. I will continue to use Kingsfield Tutors at least through the summer, if not longer. Thank you!!
My daughter had summer homework for her honors English class. Kassandra worked with her and two of her friends once a week throughout the summer. Kasandra worked out a summer lesson plan to make sure they read the book, but more importantly she made sure they fully understood their homework and related the classic literature to modern storytelling they could all understand. They all had a great time working with Kassandra and and enjoyed learning their summer work. I highly recommend Something Old Something New Tutoring.
I, highly, recommend her for all of your math tutoring needs, but especially for statistics. In my case, I needed to complete a graduate level statistics class, and I hadn't attended a math class in over twenty years, much less a statistics course. Julia was very patient and supportive in assisting me to understand probabilities, hypothesis testing, linear and multiple regressions, and time series forecasting. The outcome of our tutoring sessions together resulted in me achieving an A in the class.
Maureen has been so helpful with my son. She has been covering the basics of reading then on to grammar and writing. She communicates well with me for our appointments and is very prompt.
Annette has been the main caregiver for our 3 year old twins since they were 4 months old. They adore her and I trust her completely with them. She is caring, conscientious and very loving with them. She is always doing fun activities with them taking them to the zoo, the park, playdates, crafts, etc. She has also helped the kids to make good friends that they are very close with. We also have a 7 ½ year old that Annette occasionally cares for. She is also wonderful with her, helping her with her reading and homework, giving her individual attention, and making her feel equally important. She also occasionally makes dinner and helps with errands. We have another nanny that would work on Annettes off days, and they would work together in order to arrange their schedules, switch days, etc. so that I never needed to be concerned about our coverage. We found Annette on care.com and she has been invaluable to our family. It is difficult raising 2.5 children in a household where both parents work full time. We feel very fortunate to have found such a wonderful addition to our family. She is very attached to the kids and has notified us that we are stuck with her until they go to college. :)
Sofia has been working with my daughter since she was 3.5 years old. Now she is 8. My daughter loves working with her. Sofia is a wonderful teacher, very knowledgeable, supportive, super patient, competent, resourceful, result oriented. She has been helping my child with writing, reading, comprehension, math, Russian language. They've been making together beautiful art projects. I'm very pleased with her work and would highly recommend her to other parents.
Pete was very nice and professsional. He was flexible and easy with coordinating a meeting time and place working with our busy schedule. He definitely helped our daughter with her Spanish 2 class and finishing strong in her Spanish final.
They treated me with honesty and professionalism Allowed me to write ads and they had someone to assist. Every step of the way I felt a part of a team.
Lisa taught me how to write in just a few months. Even though I was a college junior at the time, I never knew how to write until Lisa became my tutor. I am now a successful psychologist who has written several manuscripts. I will always be grateful to Lisa for what she taught me! Dr. Tabin
Anna has a special approach to engage and interest a child in the task. Her expertise and skill in this field are commendable. I highly recommend her.
English is my second language. For certain words, I couldn't pronounce like native speakers. For example, I couldn't pronounce correctly any words starting with letter 'v'. Jeff help me correct my pronunciation by repeatedly demonstrating the way to pronounce those words. Moreover, I sometimes found it really difficult to express myself in a correct way due to my limited vocabulary. In order to help me solve this problem, Jeff makes me read articles in every class and mark down words that I can't pronounce or understand. By doing so, I have been able to expand my vocabulary. These activities significantly enhanced my speaking, listening and writing skills.
I'm a high school student who have been having straight A's for two years in a row and experience in playing the piano. I have a great passion for reading and writing, and since I can speak Vietnamese, I can help teach English to Vietnamese people and vice versa as well. Since I'm not a professional, I'm willing to negotiate prices. I'm known by teachers and friends for being responsible, hardworking, and helpful.
I have a long track history of writing interesting, focused, and persuasive papers for academic and college settings. Over the years, I have developed a keen eye for spotting, defining, and repairing many types of common and special errors typical of student papers, from developing the bare bones of a thesis and layout of a paper to refining tone, word choice, transition of ideas, and more, along with having a good practical use of all the structures associated with writing good, clean academic papers (grammar, spelling, formatting standards, etc.). Throughout my high school and college years, I found I had a good knack for sighting and suggesting improvements for my peers' papers, and each time, the paper got a higher grade. Now I hope to bring these skills to help you. In my past tutoring and editing experience, I have mostly worked with high school and college students, but I am more than willing to work with any skill level provided the individual client is mature, motivated, and prepared to improve their work, even if it means facing some hard facts about some of their writing habits. Each client I have worked with has taught me something new both about being a tutor and being a shrewd freelancer, and I only want my experience in this field to continue to grow. I am more than willing to adjust to your needs, provided they are reasonable ones, and look forward to seeing more clients succeed at their academic goals.
I'm a graduate from UC Santa Cruz with the major in the development and roots of the English language. I also attended University of Chicago and University of Pennsylvania. I have tutored in language before.
I have an MA in English with an emphasis in Composition from CSU Sacramento and a BA in English with an Emphasis in Teaching from UC Davis. Throughout my undergraduate and graduate careers, I tutored English and Biology. I am currently pursuing a Certificate in Teaching Technical Communication from Texas Tech University and I am a full time lecturer in the University Writing Program at UC Davis. Throughout the past eight years, I have taught at CSU Sacramento and UC Davis. At both of those institutions I taught First Year Composition. As a Teaching Associate at CSU Sacramento, I also taught an upper division writing in the disciplines course. Now at UC Davis, I teach a wide range of courses, including Style in the Essay, Advanced Composition, and Writing for Business, Writing for Social Justice, Writing for Health, and Writing for Psychology and Human Development. The course I teach most frequently is Writing in the Health Professions. I’ve designed several iterations of this course, including a general focus, a hybrid version, and a version that focuses on women’s health issues, specifically. Throughout all of my upper division courses, I teach critical thinking, active reading, rigorous research methods, and rhetorical awareness with special attention on audience. Regardless of the course, my students find my instructional methods to be extremely effective.
I am a tutoring and learning coach to students requiring help in reading, spelling, writing, and math from grades K-8. I specialize in tutoring with Orton Gillingham methods (multi-sensory programs in reading, spelling, and math) for students with learning differences. However, I tutor all students at all learning levels.
