I participated in online prep with Christine for the SAT & ACT, she was truly an amazing teacher. It was as if we met in person twice a week! She took the time to make sure I was understanding the subjects and made sure to not end the session until all the my questions were answered. I highly recommend online tutoring with Christine if you're looking to be successful on the SAT & ACT. I even scored a perfect score on my ACT too!
John helped my son with ACT preparation (mainly English), earlier this year (2017). John has an excellent understanding of the subject matter (SAT & ACT), lucid in his explanation of complex questions, very empathetic to a student's requirements (do you need to move your ACT scores from 25 to 30, 32 to 35, etc) and extremely flexible with his timings...this was critical as my son was busy with out of school activities and John was willing to move his schedules at the last minute. I rate him as a great tutor and completely worth the fees paid.
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.
Grace Wang is my Mandarin tutor, and I have been taking private lessons with her for many years, first for SAT II Chinese prep and then for advance reading, writing, and conversation. Grace has always been very fun and approachable, and we have a great time conversing and reading about a wide range of topics such as Chinese history, idioms, and daily life. Her own understanding of Mandarin is very strong, and she takes the time to explain the nuances of the language. She also utilizes many different resources: online learning tools, textbooks, novels, etc. Most importantly, Grace is very patient, knowledgable, and flexible. I can suggest any kind of material to review for our classes, and she will always have insightful things to add. I always look forward to my Mandarin lessons with her!
Soham is a great SAT tutor. Throughout the process, he assessed my strengths and weaknesses very well, and worked accordingly. He is incredibly understanding of the fact that I have a busy schedule with school and extracurriculars, making sure that SAT prep work was never too much of a burden, and flexible with his scheduling as well. I will continue working with Sohan for ACT and general college prep.
Dave Foster primarily tutored my home schooled daughter extensively in pre-calculus, but also provided some SAT prep. Essentially, he was her math teacher for a year. Although my daughter is a good student, she previously did not like math at all and she had some trouble grasping higher level concepts, such as logarithms. By the end of their time together, Kate not only had a firm understanding of the material, but she also developed a liking for a previously detested subject. Her SAT scores improved significantly, and when she took a higher level math course at our local college, Kate was at the top of her class. I firmly believe Dave's teaching gave her a firm foundation to succeed at this next level. Always cheerful, patient, encouraging, and willing to go the extra mile, Dave has a heart for his students and a gift for teaching. We will definitely call on Dave again, if the need arises.
All of their staff is very responsive and amazing. I scheduled my sessions right away with great tutors who graduated from top universities. Also, it was so helpful to download their SAT UP app. After trying dozens of SAT prep apps, this one is my favorite so far. If you want to get higher points, this package is awesome and affordable for the value you get.
Working with Angela has helped me improve fundamental flaws in my learning and focus on long term goals. She's very knowledgeable and can help in almost anything school/college related, from the SAT/ACT to APs better studying habits.
Amazing!! Jeriah is very professional and REALLY cares about the child's education. He is confident in his work and it shows. He is able to change his way of communication so his student is able to comprehend the lesson. Hands down the best tutor we've ever had!! We are extremely thankful for Jeriah and his incredible work ethic and morals.
BEST. ACT. TUTOR. EVER.
Kaitlin has been my writing/English tutor for several years. With her help, she taught me to organize and simplify my writing. It is her advice that allowed me to score perfectly on the ACT English and Reading sections; in total, I scored a 33 out of 36! In my experience, I have had no other tutor that is as dedicated and committed to helping me succeed. She put my time before her own to help proofread and edit my essays, work on test prep, and improve on English language arts in general. Very hardworking and compassionate!
I would highly recommend Dan to anyone looking for a quality tutor who is devoted to making sure your child fully understands the subject that he has been hired to teach. He was always prompt and was also very accomodating. Our daughter was having difficulty in AP Physics and asked for help. Fortunately, we hired Dan. She ended up getting an A in the class. He also helped her improve her ACT score. We could not have been happier with the quality of tutoring that Dan provided. He is a true professional in every sense of the word.
My stepdaughter has been working with Sylvia for a few months now and we can really see a difference in her math and English (reading, writing, spelling, etc). My stepdaughter actually looks forward to her time with Sylvia, which is so important to us. Sylvia is very patient, personable and knowledgeable. My stepdaughter got very excited yesterday, after she found out that Sylvia is also fluent in Spanish because she would like to start working on that as well. I feel that we really lucked out with finding Sylvia. Soon, my other stepdaughter will be working with Sylvia to prep her for the SSAT!

Katrina helped me improve my ACT English score from a 30 to a 34 and my ACT science from a 30 to a 33! In only 3.5 hours of tutoring! She is a wonderful tutor!
Darya is great! She helped me prep for the verbal section on the GMAT. She was really patient and taught me very useful tips. She created a in depth study plan that addressed my weakness and kept me motivated. I would totally recommend her.
Drew is a phenomenal tutor! Not only is he a whiz, but he's passionate, energetic and very organized. It's rare to find someone who is a master at both English and Math. Highly recommend.
I provide academic tutoring to students in the areas of: * English * Spanish * Math * SAT/ACT I do tutoring up to a high school level.
Admissions tests are more important than ever to gain entry to the country's top schools. I tutor for the SAT, ACT, and LSAT, and can help you achieve the high score you need to succeed.
I have experience tutoring students of all ages in many subjects. I can also help you with study skills, time management, and computer skills (Windows, Excel, Word, Powerpoint, etc). I have a very flexible schedule and provide one-on-one personalized tutoring where and when it is convenient for you. I am an MBA with a 3.86 GPA and many years of experience in financial planning and analysis, accounting, and management. I am in the top 1% on standardized tests, and excel at understanding difficult concepts and how to explain them to others. I charge $35-50 per hour for one-on-one tutoring.
I am providing focus, attention, and results! I am committed to providing the best customized assistance to students who are not getting everything that they need inside the classroom. I prefer a one-on-one approach, so that I can adapt my teaching style to specific student needs. My philosophy in tutoring math and science is to emphasize specific strategies that simplify complex problems. For English and literature subjects, I work with students on developing a logical essay structure format, vocabulary, and analytical skills. My intent is to teach skills that last a lifetime! About Me: I graduated magna cum laude from Columbia University with a degree in Environmental Engineering. Currently, I am tutoring part time while I prepare for graduate study at UC Berkeley, where I have been accepted to their number one-ranked civil and environmental engineering program. I enjoy getting to know my students and strive to make my sessions both fun and challenging. I have the knowledge and capability to teach winning strategies for the SAT and to tutor K-12 students at any level; however, my ability to get students to engage with the material helps them achieve the success that they dream of. I have worked with students of diverse backgrounds and learning abilities, with specific experience helping students with ADD/ADHD. I am patient, easy to work with, professional, and fully invested in helping my students succeed. Qualifications: I received professional SAT I verbal, math, and writing training while working with Eureka Review, a renowned Los Angeles-based SAT tutoring company. I tutored students one-on-one in their homes while engaging in a strategy-specific review of SAT math and verbal skills. Students (and parents) were consistently pleased with their level of improvement on tests. Additionally, I worked several years as a sought-after private tutor in my hometown, assisting K-12 students with homework and learning skills in all subjects. I maintained contact with parents to provide progress updates and recommendations for additional study.
