Kent was very helpful in helping my son, Harrison, with his calculus work. It seems like they're speaking a different language. I wish there were tutors like Kent when I was in high school!

John has been really helpful and responsive. He distills complex formulates into modular, simplistic fragments for me to grasp easily both with my GRE and Statistics study. Highly recommend him as a tutor/teacher.

Kristina is a warm, wonderful person who works with my son, a high school senior. She has always been super-nice to work with and pleasant. Her rates for Spanish tutoring are very reasonable. Most importantly, she genuinely cares about meeting my son where he was, finding his needs and trying hard to meet them. I highly recommend her for Spanish tutoring.

Sophie has been my French tutor for half a year. We work one-on-one once a week for one hour. She is an excellent French teacher. She is sincere, educated, knows the French grammar rules very well, and she is very good at correcting pronunciation. I told her that I wanted to speak like a native French, so she tailored her lessons and we are focusing on how to de-formalize my French and on learning French slang. I like how she really listened to my needs and how focused she is on helping me obtain my goal. Lessons with her are fun and time flies by very quickly. I highly recommend her as a French teacher.

I have worked with Cristian for three sessions now and really enjoy his teaching style and energy. I asked him to work with me to help me with my conversational Spanish (took four years in high school 15 years ago) and am very pleased with the lessons and my progress so far. I highly recommend him as a teacher or tutor!

Verified review

This gentleman is very polite and professional besides demonstrating that he is fully qualified to tutor the subject, in fact, very qualified. In addition to tutoring at the house he took the time to call me and ask if she was doing well and whether she needed additional assistance on-line or if he could answer any questions on the phone. He did not have to do this, but it was clear that he felt it important to check on his student and her progress and understanding. This was not just a job to him, he took it as a personal goal to assist her in improving. I would recommend him without reservation to anyone and everyone.

I doubt you would get a good instructor like Mr Yevegny. I am a 40+ year old guy trying to relearn calculus. I soon realized I had not had a good grip of algebra and trigonometry. He has patiently worked with me to improve my ubsertanding if the subject in my own pace. Without his guidance I would not have taken these steps either. He is extremely knowledgeable and provides a great insight at every step. Slowly piquing your interest and taking you more and more into the subject. Of course his dedication to teaching and the subject is reflected in his punctuality and professionalism. I hope you too would start your math travel with him. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me for further reference. Thanks Anand

The best part of working with Angela is that she is very careful about teaching you in the simplest way possible. As an International student junior in computer science classes in college, I had a hard time understanding the lectures in class, so i would get weekly tutoring from Angela. She is not like an irresponsible tutor who will just tell you how to solve your homework and be done. Instead, she asks you a lot of questions and leads you to think until you get the right answer. It is really awesome. Also, Angela's bilingual teaching is great. She is very fluent in Chinese and we mostly used Chinese in class because I am a Chinese international student.

I am amazed as to the quality of tutoring I received from Arbor Tutors given the low price. The tutor my daughter had was very sweet and very patient with geometry. You can't ask for a better tutor than the one we got. We chose to do the online tutoring. Five stars all the way.

Roslyn Raney has worked for the One-to-One Tutoring Service since 2004. She has tutored many students in French, German, and Spanish for our service very successfully. Adults who want to learn a language for travel purposes have been particularly impressed with her ability to teach them what they need to know to be able to converse successfully in the country they are traveling to. She also has tutored numerous high school students as well. I have received many positive comments from clients who worked with Roslyn. She came to our service having taught languages at the college level for a number of years at San Jose State and College of San Mateo.

Ellie tutored my daughter Jessica for several months for the writing and reading sections of the SAT. Jessica learned grammar and vocabulary that she had not been taught in high school and she learned speed reading with greater comprehension. As a bonus, Jessica felt her newly learned writing skills carried over to better grades in High School classes and improved her college application essays. Jessica really appreciated the opportunity to work with Ellie to gain the confidence to perform well on the SAT. As a result, Jessica earned a very high score on the SAT and was accepted to the University of California in San Diego. I highly recommend Ellie as a tutor for the SAT.
