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.

Completely worth it is all I have to say. John explained many parts of the ACT, and explained how to understand, see, and handle the problem. A fantastic tutor to work with

Wang lao shi (Grace) has been my daughter's private Chinese tutor for two years. She works very well with young children - she also tutors several of my daughter's classmates - and she is adaptable, fun, caring, kind, generous, and skilled as a teacher. My daughter, who speaks no Chinese at home, is progressing in her Chinese studies very well and can handle the same assignments as her many Chinese classmates, I am sure, because she has Grace's little bit of extra support at home. I have no hesitations in recommending Grace. She is punctual, a very good and patient teacher, and I see real results.

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!

I have been taking lessons from Lillian for a few weeks now. I absolutely love her teaching style. Each 1-hour class is intense and afterwards I feel like I have gotten to the next level. But more importantly it spurs me on to want to learn more. She is patient and kind, but quick to see where you are making a mistake and drilling you on that area so you rapidly start doing it right and forget your wayward ways. For anyone who is interested in learning Mandarin I highly recommend Lillian as a tutor!

Tim was a great teacher for me! He was easy to talk to,understood my questions, and helped me improve my weak points. After working with him for a few months, I was able to understand a lot of the material provided in the SAT test and improve a lot on my practice test. Overall, Tim is a great teacher for learning how to improve your English , especially to prepare for SAT test.

Ruth was an invaluable resource proofreading and editing my latest writing project. She is smart, listens well, and patient. The quality of her work is excellent, she is professional, responsive, and turned things around for me when promised (ahead of schedule, actually). She was a calming influence and an excellent sounding board as I discussed ideas with her. I would, without reservation, recommend her to others.

Darya tutored and advised me throughout my senior year of high school and my first year at college. Having Darya by my side throughout the stress of a year and a half journey has had a significant impact in my life. Although Darya's main responsibility was to tutor me for my Advanced Placement (AP) Literature class, she went above and beyond to what I expected of an English tutor. She helped me find my inner voice as a writer through tutoring me about grammar, organization, and vocabulary. She also helped boost my confidence as an underprivileged Latina studying in the STEM field as a computer science major at the University of California: Santa Cruz. I passed both my AP Government and AP Literature classes and tests which is significant because both required a heavy amount of analytical writing; I graduated high school with honors and with the highest cumulative grade point average (GPA), 3.7, at any time of my academic career. One week before I was going to take my SAT for the third time, I mentioned to Darya that I was struggling understanding a large portion of the Math section of the test. To my surprise, she was thoroughly capable skilled in tutoring me in math, along with English. In less than seven days, Darya was able to successfully prepare me for my last SAT test; subsequently, my SAT score improved by more than 100 points. If we had more time to go through the preparation book, I could have further surpassed this amazing progress. Another aspect in which Darya supported me in my college application and preparation process was in guiding me to refine my college essays for both private and public universities: as a result, I was accepted to more than half of the colleges that I applied to. Finally, I am most grateful for Darya and her efforts towards my success because of the high number of scholarships that I received in the second semester of my senior year in high school. Through Darya’s excellent editing and writing abilities, I was able to accumulate more than $200,000 in scholarship rewards from four different organizations. I could never have imagined this much triumph before meeting Darya; without these scholarship awards, I would have been forced to work during my breaks and during school to afford a college education. Now, all that I have to worry about is learning as much as I can while I am at UCSC. On account of my strong achievements in less than a year with Darya, I still utilize the many tips and lessons that she has instilled in me. As a result of this, I excelled in my classes at UCSC with a cumulative GPA of 3.6. Because of my outstanding academic success in the first quarter of college, I was exclusively invited by the university to apply to the College Scholars Program; this two-year program selects 20 students out of about 200 students applying from each college at UCSC to help give them meaningful academic challenges. Not only do I recognize Darya as one of the most significant people in my life because of my solid academic accomplishments, but also due to the genuine passion she holds to be sure that her tutees succeed. As her tutee, she constantly reminded me of my own abilities to encourage my confidence. We are still in contact today which further demonstrates her enthusiasm for her tutees. She is evidently benevolent, motivated, and intelligent, and I highly recommend her tutoring and guidance talents to any student who is fortunate enough to be her tutee.
