We have a great experience with Elite home tutoring, especially our teacher Anena, she learnt our need and personalize the teaching for my son's personal interest, it's a great idea and it works very well.
John has been tutoring my 16 year old daughter in prep for her SAT test. He was very flexible in scheduling sessions for Sunday mornings given the heavy schedule my daughter maintains. John's style is very effective in making the material content interesting, light and relatable to a teenager. He uses a good balance of humor and examples that keep her engaged throughout the session. Homework assigned is manageable and not burdensome. John is very intelligent and has a very good grasp of the material content. He provides a professional service and we look forward to the results of my daughter's test.
I had to take the GMAT after having taken the exam a couple of times before Arbor Tutors. Then I had heard of Arbor Tutors through a friend. I must say I am extremely impressed with the quality of service from the first phone call through the tutoring sessions. They hooked me up with a team of tutors who were able to help assess my gaps and arrange a game plan so that I could be more effective the next time I took the exam. That is the reason why everybody trusts Arbor Tutors.
I spent several months working with Grace through some intermediate mandarin. Really great tutor. She will also text you outside of the tutoring to keep you engaged and make sure you are doing your homework!
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!
Kathleen helped my daughter who was a junior in AP Spanish. Kathleen was patient and kind , listening well to my daughter and working through her problem areas. She was also very flexible with scheduling the lessons working with my daughters school work and extracurricular activities. With Kathleen’s help, my daughter brought her B to a solid A.
Anish did a great job in helping me learn Math by properly giving me the instruction and practice I needed. I saw results soon after our tutoring sessions!
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)!
We did in-person tutoring at the library for math. Our tutor was excellent. Arbor Tutors is just amazing!
BEST. ACT. TUTOR. EVER.
Got a tutoring package for my two kids and we have been extremely happy
I, highly, recommend her for all of your math tutoring needs, but especially for statistics. In my case, I needed to complete a graduate level statistics class, and I hadn't attended a math class in over twenty years, much less a statistics course. Julia was very patient and supportive in assisting me to understand probabilities, hypothesis testing, linear and multiple regressions, and time series forecasting. The outcome of our tutoring sessions together resulted in me achieving an A in the class.
Aanchal was a great SAT tutor and I had a really great experience working with her! She created a customized study plan that helped me reach my target score and then coached me through the college admissions process, which helped me get accepted to Cornell University.
When Ellie Schamber tutored my son before he took the PSAT, he got the highest score in his high school, became a National Merit Scholar, and was offered all kinds of scholarships. Getting a good score on the PSAT is almost more important than the SAT. She also spent several hours with him before he took the SAT - he received a Regent's Scholarship to UC and graduated with high honors. Ellie tailors her tutoring to the student's individual needs and she is extremely effective. I highly and unequivocally recommend her.
Ron has been providing excellent tutoring for AP Calculus BC.
Working with Ryan has been, and continues to be, an excellent experience. Not only is he knowledgeable in everything he teaches, but he’s also flexible with scheduling and valuable mentor in multiple subject matters. Great tutor overall!
I tutor mathematics at all levels up to multivariable calculus and differential equations. I also tutor SAT math. I have 5+ years experience in tutoring. I graduated from Harvard with honors in bioengineering.
Having been fascinated with the inner workings of programs from a young age, I take joy in constructing my own within several platforms. I would be more than happy to teach those with the same passion for computer science. Languages I have worked on include Java, C++, Ruby and HTML. In regard to teaching these subjects, I have experience in the past teaching elementary school kids how to program their own robots. Your school assignments will seem just as easy to you in no time! I can also offer tutoring for Japanese, having been raised in a Japanese household and attended the San Francisco Japanese Language Class for over 10 years. I was also a teacher aide for AP Japanese at my local high school, so I know firsthand what challenges students' face when learning this particular language. With these experiences, I can teach Japanese like no other tutor can. I look forward to further correspondence!
I am a private teacher/tutor who enjoys working with students in a variety of age ranges to help them accomplish their goals. I am patient and can teach various subjects clearly and in a range of ways to account for different learning styles. I have worked with students with a variety of learning differences, and I excel in connecting with students, redirecting their attention, keeping them focused and motivating them to succeed. I have experience working both with a pre-planned curriculum and in creating or adapting curricula to meet the needs and desires of my students. I administer assessments and am comfortable adapting lessons to address areas that need more work. My recent experience includes tutoring and/or teaching the following: * Middle and high school students * Test prep such as SSAT and ISEE * Algebra * English language such as grammar and vocabulary * Literature * World history * American history * Writing * Reading comprehension * Latin * Homeschooled students * Students with ADHD * Students with dyslexia * Students with Asperger's
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.
