My son needed help with Spanish and Algebra. I thought Chemistry might become an issue later on. Eric found him a tutor able to do all 3! Allyssa has been great helping with everything. It was great not having to find separate tutors. Allyssa has been so patient and kind helping my son get back on schedule after his surgery. We love her!
My 13 year old son loved studying with John for SSAT. SSAT is a tricky and challenging test; we've worked with a number of tutors before, but John's pace, accessibility and sense of humor clicked perfectly with my son's needs and taste. John goes through a material quickly, but thoroughly, which helps covering a lot of ground in a reasonable time and makes every session very effective. It takes a number of qualities to make a good test tutor, and John has them all. My son's score improved after just a few sessions with John, but these sessions were also enriching and fun. We recommend him highly. Victoria
We are very fortunate to have Arbor Tutors' help. Great customer service.
John Bertinetti helped me study for the GMAT exam over the summer of 2017 with concentrated sessions to review GMAT Quant. John got me started on a study path by sharing info about the best study resources for my problem areas, and would meet with me once or twice a week to go over key Quant problems that I needed help solving. John is an ideal tutor for students who are good at keeping themselves on track without a structured curriculum. Great value, flexible scheduling, and clear explanations of problems are all huge wins with him. About halfway through the summer, I realized that I needed a structured class and more discipline to keep myself on schedule, so I supplemented my study sessions with John with an independent online class with a live teacher. Key lessons w/John: John is all about understanding the concepts behind a problem before sharing tricks; his method is great for learners like me who need to understand the math conceptually and don't want to just memorize formulas. We did a lot of work on combinatorics and probability, which were my challenge areas. He was a great and affordable supplemental resource for me beyond the class. Results: I went from a 580 on my Manhattan GMAT diagnostic to a 730 score on the actual GMAT after 3 months of light study followed by 2 months of intense study.
My daughter worked with Mathman Tutoring when she was in high school. She found his tutoring to be very helpful in understanding concepts that she hadn't quite gotten in class. It was very convenient to have him come to our house. I would recommend his services to my friends.
Anish is an excellent GRE tutor. He offered to tutor me one-on-one in order to accommodate for my busy school schedule. He is very good at explaining challenging reading comprehension questions in simple yet clear ways and always stop to make sure I understand everything. Also, he asks what I would like to focus on before each session to make sure he covers all aspects that I want to improve upon. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs help with GRE.
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.
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)!
Arbor Tutors is a very well-run company. They hire the best tutors and are able to help you.
Pio is very good at catering the lesson to my needs - where I am at in the learning curve, and helping fill in any gaps in my knowledge of mathematics. He also helps create a plan and gives homework to accomplish my goal.
Just take a look at their website and you will see some of the amazing tutors they hire. It is a night and day difference between Arbor Tutors and other companies around. High quality.
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.
Dan is a great math tutor. He is patient and knowledgeable. He leads you to the solution but does not tell you the solution. He makes you figure it out by encouraging your own abilities to problem solve. I received tutoring for the CSET Math test and I was very impressed with Dan.
Working with Ryan has been, and continues to be, an excellent experience. Not only is he knowledgeable in everything he teaches, but he’s also flexible with scheduling and valuable mentor in multiple subject matters. Great tutor overall!
Mr Hodge is an excellent tutor. My son stated that he was well it's the price. He came prepared, he was early, respectful, and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend!
Thank goodness we found Janet. She is the perfect tutor!! Down to earth, great with kids, trustworthy, thorough, and just fantastic. My son was behind in math and within a few months was at grade level and more importantly loving math! He gained skills and confidence and this was because of his work with Janet.
My Ph.D. is in chemistry and I have previous teaching experience at the college and high school level.
Compare us against one of the mass marketed national tutoring chains and you'll discover why our approach is better: 1) We utilize ONLY state-certified teachers as tutors. Your tutor will be a degreed educator with classroom teaching experience. We will not send you a college student or other untrained professional. 2) We provide a customized tutoring experience. Our private tutoring lessons are not mass produced. Instead, your tutor will customize a plan of action to reflect your child's goals and learning style. 3) We offer straight-forward pricing. You set the pace, and you simply pay your tutor's reasonable hourly rate.
