Professional, on time. John is tutoring my 10 year old son in math, specifically, common core math. John is very patient which is what my son needs. I try to help him but I lose my patience which frustrates both of us. I am glad John is able to help and I hope my son will improve his math skills. John has tutored Christopher twice only so I hope this review is helpful. So far, I would recommend John.

Arbor Tutors advised which was the best calculus class my son needed to take. After my son made changes to his schedule, it was not necessary to have the level of tutoring we had purchased. Arbor Tutors returned the money quickly and without question. The tutor we spoke with was highly knowledgeable. I would recommend this company.

Both of my children (12 and 10 years old) have been with Marion for over one year for French private tutoring, and they love her!! Marion is a very dedicated educator, and French teacher, my children and I love/enjoy her teaching methods and approaches, which incorporate games, songs, movies and daily interaction objects, people that my children could relate to their day-to-day life. She is firm and extremely friendly, which is an excellent teacher would be.

John helped me raise my GRE score significantly. Working with John helped me gain the skills and tools I needed to reach (just above) my goal score. We studied the content of the GRE but also strategies for approaching problems likely to be found on the GRE, which proved invaluable. John was patient and encouraging throughout our tutoring and always gave me the extra confidence I needed to help me get through tough problems. It’s nice to have someone cheering you on when you’re trying to achieve a score that might seem hard or unachievable. John made the process of studying for the GRE as painless and fun as possible!

Sophie is an amazing tutor. She begins by gaining a thorough understanding of what you hope to accomplish with the lessons and gives you materials and resources needed to help you to fulfill those goals. She is very organized and has a clear plan for each lesson. Her lessons are well explained with different types of exercises so it doesn't get boring. She encourages learning of French culture alongside the language, and as a native French speaker, her knowledge of expressions and details needed for true fluency is fabulous. She also understands school curriculums and AP testing very well to be able to help prepare for those. She was able to teach me what I wasn't learning well enough in school, and I feel much more confident after having her lessons going into my AP test. I highly recommend France@yours for anyone looking to gain fluency and a true understanding of French!

Lillian has been tutoring my daughter in Mandarin, both speaking and writing for about six months through weekly 1 hour sessions at our home. Lillian has an upbeat and warm personality and is passionate about teaching. I am impressed at how she mixes up the lesson so that my fidgety 7 year old remains engaged the entire time. She uses a variety of print, audio and video materials. She focuses on proper technique in speaking and writing while always remaining positive and encouraging. We are so lucky to have found Lillian, and my daughter's interest in learning Mandarin has only grown!

Since December 2015 Christian has been tutoring my high schooler daughter, who had difficulty with Spanish grammar. Christian is the best tutor we ever had. He is very thorough, and explains grammar very well. He always prepares a lot of grammar exercises in advance, and makes sure that his student not only understood the new grammar concept, but can also use it correctly. He brings a lot of extra materials from different sources, and he also prepares exercises from the textbook that my daughter has to use at school. He really cares about the progress and grades of his students. In "emergencies" his students can count on him as well. Before tests he has always been willing to squeeze in an extra lesson when we ask him, even on Sundays. In addition to all that, he can make a stubborn teenager work. What more could we wish for more?

I am super thrilled that Mr. Young is tutoring our son. In this technology induced Math learning environment I felt that my son was learning how to use the gadgets to get the answers right. I am glad to see that with Mr. Young's assistance we are now focusing on learning the subject and more importantly laying the right foundation!

Yevgeny helped me with business calculus class. This class was extremely important for me to pass as most 4 year colleges I was trying to get into wanted me to take it. During the 16 week semester, Yevgeny would come twice a week to help me with my homework and go over each chapter in depth. We would spend almost two hours each session on different problems and he would show me how to do each one. However, he doesn't do each problem for you but instead would have me do the problem on my own and give me help if I needed it. He made sure I understood each chapter we would go over before going onto the next. Yevgeny is a great person who really cares about the success of those he is tutoring. He understands many different math courses and is really smart. Without his help I wouldn't have passed my class and gone on to transfer to my 4 year college. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of help in any math course.

Angela does the best job of explaining concepts for AP/SAT if you are trying to learn something outside of school. We did our tutoring over the computer, but I actually found it more engaging than in person. For example, I was confused about cos (180degrees), because I hadn't learned about it in school yet. Angela's explanation also made 10x more sense than what my math teacher would say. Now I FINALLY understand how to find cos (180degrees)!

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.

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.

I took many semesters of German at College of San Mateo with Dr. Raney and she was by far one of the best German professors I've ever had the privilege of knowing. She is patient, brilliant, and very creative in the way in which she teaches a foreign language. She encouraged me and gave up much of her own time to support my desire to improve my language skills. Her dedication and knowledge of German (and I assume in other languages too) is amazing.
