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!
My son needed a tutor for his freshman year college English Composition class. Before hiring Carl, I had tried a couple of tutors, but didn't find them to be competent. Carl was a very pleasant surprise; he is both very knowledgeable and engages well with my son. I like the fact that he does't merely correct him and gives him answers, but makes him think and analyse the material. He is a rare find.
Lois is the most helpful teacher/mentor I have ever had the opportunity to work with. She is flexible about times and has helped me with many different writing and speaking projects. Lois has vast experience in many areas and knows how to make projects and learning enjoyable. She is willing to share her knowledge and insight. I am so glad that I hired her and will continue to go to her for all my speaking, writing, acting, film and academic needs. You will get custom help for a reasonable price- she is an amazing tutor.

This past summer, I was in search of a tutor to assist my brother with his preparation for the ACT. A number of conversations with local tutors proved fruitless, as they were either too expensive or had rigid schedules. After doing some research online, I came across Joyees profile on Wyzant. I was particularly impressed by his extensive background in ACT tutoring having worked for some well-regarded test preparation companies. In addition, his rates were extremely fair. I enlisted Joyees tutoring services via skype, and my experience was remarkable. In spite of the three hour time difference between the east coast and west coast, Joyee remained a consummate professional with regard to his scheduling and punctuality. Most importantly, he is fully invested in his students, demonstrating patience and understanding whilst pushing them to achieve their full potential. Prior to working with Joyee, my brother had an initial diagnostic score of 27. After six weeks of tutoring with Joyee my brother scored a 35 on the September 2015 ACT. I highly recommend Joyee, his tutoring services are the perfect complement for any motivated high school student seeking help with test preparation.
I really learned a lot from Daniel. He clearly knows a lot about the topics he tutors in, and knows how to explain it in a way that's easy to understand. His demeanor was calm and is very easy to talk to!
I am so thankful we found Jeff!!! We had worked previously with a different SAT tutor who clearly didn't know what he was doing. Although Jeff was priced higher than some of the other tutors on Thumbtack, I wanted to see if spending a little more would make a difference. It did - we just got the scores back, and my son raised his score by 400 points! I cannot recommend working with Jeff enough. My son loved having him come to the house. We will miss Jeff, but I hope others can have the type of experience we did. You won't regret it!
Addy helped to find the right tutor for my kids, we hit a few bumps along the way but she came through at last
We are very fortunate to have Arbor Tutors' help. Great customer service.
Daniel was very professional and went above and beyond to give the tutoring help I needed in a somewhat obscure math topic, which included him spending time researching and working through the problems before the tutoring session to ensure that he could answer all of my questions. I would recommend Daniel to anyone looking for a quality math tutor who invests himself in your success. Thanks again for all the help Daniel!!
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.
Quite simply Esmeralda is a miracle worker. She is a one stop shop for all your needs. Highly qualified in every subject she is also an educational therapist and particularly effective with reluctant teenage boys. As a parent, you can take s breath of relief as she has the ability to organize and focus on exactly what the student needs extra help with. I have had many tutors but never have I experienced someone so extraordinary!
Rachel is the most incredible math tutor! With her help, I was able to bring my grade up from an F to a B. As a college student who still struggles with math, I was extremely frustrated until I began working with Rachel. She helped me gain a better understanding of mathematics overall. I am extremely grateful for her ability to teach me something I thought was impossible for me to learn.
I needed a tutor for my daughter in the new Integrative Math 8. Jenny is an excellent tutor. She is very patient a explains the concepts thoroughly. She is extremely knowledgeable and knows a lot about this new common core math. This new math initiative includes algebra and geometry together in one class! I never heard of it but As soon as I mentioned what class it was Jenny knew immediately what the concepts were. My daughters grades are improving thanks to Jenny !
I hired JD to tutor me in my Statistics class. He is an outstanding tutor and gave me the most professional sessions I could imagine. I really struggled with the material, as I had attempted the class on my own once before. With JD's help I am currently at an A- with a week left of class. Thanks JD!
I hired Arbor Tutors to help my daughter with chemistry and math. She ended up with As.
Fantastic service. All the way from the manager to the two tutors we used.
I was having trouble with my GMAT and then I was able to get very quick help from Arbor Tutors. The tutor helped me with many tips and tricks I didn't find anywhere else. Arbor Tutors is the best..
We did in home tutoring with Arbor Tutors and were extremely happy. I would not hesitate using Arbor Tutors again.
I have a horrible science teacher but I was able to get excellent help from an Arbor tutor. Best tutors around. Fantastic deal.
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.
Johanna is a very good teacher! She is very open minded and will help you the way you think is the right way for you to learn. Johanna was a great help after lesson as well, when she answerd questions that I had, and sent me links to continue practicing at home. Thank you again Johanna! Daniel
