We've been working with Lisa-Beth for several months now. She is tutoring my 13 year old daughter in writing and it has been a stellar experience. Lisa-Beth is professional, communicative, thoughtful and inspirational in her approach. She gives real value to my daughter and has expanded her view of writing as a medium of expression. Thanks Lisa-Beth!
Carl was referred to us by a very happy, satisfied student. He has been tutoring my Junior daughter in Algebra 2. She has always been challenged in Math and saves all homework till last. Carl has been a "spark" in getting her to not "hate" it so much. He comes prepared, energetic and dedicated to gaining a clear understanding of the topic, while interjecting humor into this very dry subject. Carl has been instrumental in my daughters improved Algebra 2 grade! Hurray!
We highly recommend Lois For tutoring. She is well known in Honolulu and has years of experience. She tutored our granddaughter when she needed to take the entrance exams into private schools. Lois has great knowledge of children and skill in getting them to do their work. Her lessons were challenging and fun. Our grandaughter could hardly wait to return to her next session. We wish Lois was here to tutor our grandaughter in her college SATS. Carol Lehman
I feel compelled to share a great "find" we made last year. School had only been in session for two weeks before my kids came home lamenting that their AP Physics teacher left them totally confused and stressed out. Switching to a less demanding schedule wasn't an option so I decided to look for some help. Lord knows, it wasn't going to come from me or my husband! I found Daniel, a 2012 UCLA engineering grad who has been tutoring for many years. After the boys' first meeting with him, the level of stress in our household plummeted and the boys did well on their first physics test. We've decided to have him come regularly, just to make sure the boys understand the material and keep them confident. The boys ended up with A's in the class and doing well on the AP test. Daniel was able to help them with anything they didn't get in their calculus class as well. So as you stare the next school year in the face, if your child has any difficulty with their studies, especially in math or physics, consider talking to Daniel. He's a lovely young man and the boys really responded to him well.
Elite Home Tutoring went above and beyond to meet my daughter tutoring needs in a very tight time frame. I communicated with them over the weekend trying to get a tutor by Monday to prepare my daughter for a Tuesday test. They made every effort to connect me with a highly competent tutor in record time. Our initial session was very positive as my daughter, who is a bright 14-year-old in a demanding algebra class, had her questions answered in a way that made sense to her, practiced, and, as a result, started regaining her confidence. We highly recommend Elite to anyone in need of professional tutoring. Definitely worth it.
Receiving tutoring for GMAT test prep. Steve is very friendly, knowledgeable, and gives solid, realistic advice. Will definitely recommend to all of my friends/anyone who needs a great tutor!
I am a professor of mathematics and the supervisor of the Math Tutoring Lab at Los Angeles Valley College. Reza is one of the best tutors I have met on any campus I have taught at including University of Utah, Cal State Los Angeles, and numerous community colleges. Reza has tutored at LA Valley College for the past 9 years. Overall he has tutored for 18 years. He is commonly the tutor I hear praised most often by my students. They tell me that not only is his mathematics excellent but he is very clear in his explanation and very supportive with his attitude. He makes my students want to do more math because he makes it very comprehensible for them. Reza tutors Algebra I, Algebra II, Trigonometry, Calculus and Statistics. He is the standard I hold up my other tutors to. He shows up on time, teaches very intuitively and my students walk away from each session with him feeling better about themselves. As a person, I find Reza to be a wonderful role model who volunteers many hours each week at the tutoring lab, teaching math to many students on campus.
Just scheduled our first tutoring lesson, but so far very professional and punctual.
Great teacher, very knowledgeable and professional. Esmeralda helped my daughters with understanding SAT test concept, time saving tips and strategies to raise their score. We are very pleased with her and look forward to continuing tutoring with her in the future. I highly recommend her.
Anne-Cecile gave me an hour of tutoring in French. Excellent instruction, friendly atmosphere, paid attention to my goals to learn French. She went beyond by recording expressions I can practice on my own with the right pronunciation. A pleasure! Thank you! Parking was a little challenging.
Lizzy and Cindy were both an incredible help when it came to writing my Statement of Purpose for Graduate School. I'm now extremely confident with the product I was able to create with their help.
I hired Ahmed for Math tutoring for my son who is taking the PSAT and SAT this coming fall. He had rave reviews about Ahmed. Ahmed was patient, incredibly knowledgeable, and able to explain the concepts to my son in an absorbable manner. I will continue using him for the rest of my son's high school math needs. Highly recommended.
Fouzia is the perfect tutor for me. As an older student, learning is not as easy as it used to be and languages have always challenged me. Her patience and kindness is exceptional! I love that she grew up in Paris and has the accent I am hoping to achieve.
Andrew was a fantastic resource for me during my applications to graduate school. I did private tutoring with him for the GRE as well as sought tutoring from him for my personal statements for graduate school. He is intelligent, attentive, thorough in all of his work, and truly cares about the success of his students. He also makes learning fun and although studying for the GRE can be a mundane task, somehow made it more interesting for me. He followed up with me when I still needed more resources and follows up post-GRE to see how I am doing in my career. I highly recommend and endorse Andrew!
Excellent SAT and ACT tutoring.
We did in home tutoring with Arbor Tutors and were extremely happy. I would not hesitate using Arbor Tutors again.
Adele, is a fun loving, intelligent, kind, and just all-around great tutor. We call it an Italian play date when she comes over to teach my son. He learns through play being that he’s four years old and she adapts to what he’s interested in. He loves having her come. And we enjoy her as well. We see the benefits in him as hes starting to think and speak in Italian where previously he had not. This is very exciting to see the benefits of the weekly tutoring. I would recommend Adele as a language tutor to anyone.
they were fantastic peter was prompt he met with our daughter to assess her skill set and found the appropriate tutor to work woth Her
If you want the best of the best, Todd Frost is the tutor to hire. My sixteen year old son has been struggling with math since middle school. I have literally spent thousand of dollars on tutoring programs that didn't work. I wish I would have found Todd back then, but better late than never. Thanks to Todd, my son is now on track and feels more confident in his current Geometry class.
To begin with, I really enjoy being tutored by Marcelo. One reasons is because I like the fact he uses different methods of teaching to help me improve my Spanish speaking skills; for example, he has used book lessons and anthologies in order to help me strengthen my reading and comprehension skills in addition to audiobooks to help improve my listening skills. Another reason is because I like that Marcelo tries to challenge my skills by having me read/listen to advanced readings/audiobooks which allow me to observe my strengths and weaknesses as a student. Lastly, I really like the fact that he is easy to talk to and that he is a patient teacher who seems to enjoy teaching. Overall, I would definitely recommend his services to others.
“Paulina is truly an exceptional tutor! This could end up being a very lengthy review...She worked with my daughter during her last year year of middle school and hopefully will continue to assist her in high school if tutoring is needed. Paulina tutored her mostly in mathematics and science ,but also assisted her with other challenging subject matter as well. Paulina is very bright indeed but is also kind, warm hearted, and naturally intuitive. She was able to tune-in to what my daughter needed consistently. Whether study breaks were needed, emotional guidance if frustration levels were high with the subject matter, or simply a change in venue...Paulina knew how to tackle the specific challenge. Paulina is a true gift to the teaching profession. My daughter and I feel so blessed that Paulina has been there through the challenges of a highly academic middle school.”
