Abraham is one of the founders of Spanish55, a wonderful Spanish tutoring service! I've been looking for a Spanish tutor for a while before Spanish55 found me. It's convenient, efficient, and the coaches are excellent. I stayed with it for so long because the staff and coaching had been catered to my needs. I would not have been able to find other Spanish tutors so easily! If Spanish55 never approached me, I probably would never have gone looking for lessons anywhere else. In regards to staff, Abraham has always been receptive, communicative, and extremely accommodating!
Juliette is very knowledgeable, teaches well and provides excellent tips and strategies. She interacts very well with teenagers - they enjoy her. She has a pleasant demeanor. She communicates well, is easy to contact, and very responsive. We will be using her again.
Mike is so very patient with my son and takes the time to explain things in a way he can comprehend. Mike also gives him tips to use in class that will help him remember formulas etc. that are very helpful. I'd recommend him as a math tutor hands down.
Thinque Prep was an amazing asset to my family and I. This was my first child and I was extremely confused with the all the rules and requirements that colleges have these days. I met with Joyee and he helped clarify everything. He walked me through a timeline for testing, course selection. He help set up my son for a proper testing schedule. We talked through colleges in depth. He connected me with a world class research opportunity for my son. He also hosted a essay workshop over the summer where he invited actual college representatives to work with the students. They read through his essays and gave him constructive criticism. I can't thank him enough for all his help, and we will be continuing to use his services -- in both test preparation and college guidance -- for all my children.
I am not one to leave a ton of reviews for services and I have had mixed success with Thumbtack, but I think this man is an unsung hero!!! My daughter has struggled in math for years, since grammar school, and is now in 8th grade. She continued to struggle with a different tutor. We have been working once a week with Mr. Matlak now for about six weeks and the difference is simply amazing. She just got her first "A" in a math quiz since grammar school and we both nearly cried in relief and joy. The two most important things about him - he KNOWS the concepts cold (some tutors DON'T), and he is PATIENT. I came to the conclusion that my daughter simply would not get the pace of learning or individualized attention in the public school setting that she needs for this particular topic. She is doing well in other topics but math is her Achilles heel. I didn't have the patience (or the knowledge) to help much and it became a source of frustration for both of us. It is such a RELIEF to see her more confident and not stressed about math now!! I can't say enough good things about Mr. Matlak. He promptly answered my inquiries, quickly provided two references who gave glowing reviews, and we are so happy to have him. We didn't want to go the Sylvan or other company routes - Mr. Matlak comes to your home, sits down with your student, and gets to work. I can't believe I did not invest in my child's future earlier in her school career - it is well worth it. We do an hour a week and it has made a VAST difference. I have no relation to Mr. Matlak (other than to sing his praises) and I would be happy to provide anyone interested with additional comments. Update April 22, 2015: Our daughter continues to work with Ray weekly and is now pulling a "B" average, coming up from the "D" average she was pulling when we started. Not struggling and spending so much time on math has allowed her to focus on her other classes and encouraged her to bring her other grades up as well as she prepares to enter high school. We couldn't be more pleased to see our daughter's confidence growing with respect to math. We'll keep him through COLLEGE if he's willing!! All kidding aside, Ray is well worth the investment, even if your budget calls for less frequent tutoring sessions.
What a wonderful tutor. She take her time to make sure you understand the subject you struggling on. Also the way she teach you is the most simplest form to where you are quickly to understand it. She is an amazing tutor.
I highly recommend Lynne as an English tutor. With her help I've significantly improved my communication and writing skills.
Jenny tutored both of my boys. She was always courteous, and prepared. I first found her looking g for a SAT Tutor. She reviewed work and offered constructive assistance without doing the work for them. I used Jenny for 2 and 1/2 years. With my younger son. We recommend her to friends who have also used her tutoring. The convenience of having her is great so my teenagers are not meeting in a public coffee shop or library. I was able to be active in recommendations when needed.
Easy to follow, very precise & patient tutors. Excellent service all the way around!!!
Nancy's is the best tutor I've ever had I have 3 boys and 1 girls and I have had over 15 different tutors over the years and by far she is the best I have had she is everything I am as far being stern but she brings the softness that the student needs to get the best out of them my daughter did not bond with the three tutors before Nancy but she really loves Mrs Nancy as she calls her and she look forward to her session every week. I hired her to teach my daughter Spanish who has never taken before and she already can write and speak Spanish in less than two months she was so good I ask if she does any other subjects and of course she does it all so now she tutors my daughter in math and her grade went from a C to an A she makes sure the student understands the topic before she moves on and she won't budge or go any further unless the student totally understands it. If your looking for top shelf tutor look no futher and for the price it's a win win for me and my daughter thanks for making my daughter experience a total success.
My 8 year old daughter, Ariah, has weekly spanish tutor sessions with Rosy and she loves her. Ariah mentioned to me that she can really understand now when she's with Rosy because Rosy makes everything make sense. Also Rosy is very thorough when it comes to lesson plans and homework. She is in contact with my daughter's teachers and ensures that the teachings coincide with what's expected at school. We still have a long way to go, but so far so good.
Give Arbor Tutors a call and you will be extremely happy. Highly recommended.
James started tutoring my son ending of last school year (the Last month of school.) My son was at risk of not participating 8th grade promotion. Not only did his grades improve, but fulfilled the requirements for graduation. James has been a Great influence for my son. He is dedicated and really cares about the future of his students. You will not find a better tutor.
Our daughter has dyscalculia, and I was at my wits end in finding someone who would be able to tutor her, think outside of the box, and help make a difference in her learning levels. I had no idea that I would strike gold in finding Konie Byrnes who not only worked her magic with our daughter, but who understood her as an individual, took time to work out what learning method worked best for her. Konie, has created a atmosphere of care, kindness, compassion and an understanding of the wonderful little human being our daughter is. Konie cares deeply about her students and that is something that we just don't see any more. Konie comes highly recommended.
She is great! I was in need of a SAT english tutor in order to compete for a spot at the United States Military Academy at West Point. She showed up on time and if needed would stay extra to make sure I actually improved. I was extremely confident heading into my test and was accepted into West Point. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of any help with english. In addition, she helped me with writing a letter to West Point on why I want to attend. She is great!!!
Mary Ellen is one of the best English and writing tutors out there. She has been working with both of my sons, now ages 14 and 17, for several years, helping them develop their writing and literary analysis skills. My older son had problems organizing his thoughts and expressing his ideas clearly and succinctly, and Mary Ellen was instrumental in helping him develop these writing skills. She is adept at literary analysis, an area my younger son needed support in, and provided the extra help he needed to fully comprehend the difficult novels his class was reading. As importantly, Mary Ellen has an amazing ability to relate to her students and both my boys looked forward to working with her.
Marcia, is good tutor she will help you in any way. She had wonderful personality and she is always on time. She loves and cares her students. I really love her because she teaches like you were in classroom. Easy to understand. Awesome tutor never been late.
Joseph Descans helped me with the editing of several documents. His knowledge and editing skills were outstanding, and his patience with the process was the best part. It can be tremendously frustrating when you have "writer's block" and the words just don't come out right, but a patient tutor is such a great asset to have in your back pocket!
Kim was great . She explained everything to me and gave simple directions that I can understand and she was very patient when it came to her payment . I had a hard time trying to do the pay pal or anything that involves the computer or my phone even . She was great to work with . ! She also sent me 2 resumes that I can choose from and they turned out great ! And it was done in the time frame that I needed .
