Lisabeth helped me with my ACT writing skills and with the reading and science sections. We did 2 hour sessions. The quality of her work was great and she helped me a lot with the ACT and helped me calm down before my test. My experience with her was great and I will definitely contact her in the future.
Carl is an experienced tutor who provides more than just "homework help" or "test prep." He helped my son with valuable life lessons like organizing his notebook and assignments. He also instructed him to advocate for himself by encouraging him to speak to his teacher after school and to be more proactive about raising his hand in class. Carl was able to identify why my son was struggling, and it had nothing to do with actual understanding of the subject matter. Rather, it was inadequate teaching materials (handouts) and a less than optimal style of teaching. Once these problems were identified, we were able to come up with solutions that would help my son succeed in class. Most importantly, Carl is not just concerned with grades and test scores. His primary concern is that the student actually knows and understands the work. I would not hesitate to refer Carl to anyone needing a tutor for their child.
I have been learning so much from Lois regarding test strategies for the GRE. Her method is unlike any I have practiced and I actually feel I can tackle the GRE now!
Excellent tutor! Daniel tutored my 13 year old son in Physics. My son went from being completely lost to getting an A in the class. Very professional, explains topics clearly, connects well with student. My son loved the Skype/online white board method of teaching. No need to go anywhere or sit in traffic. Daniel was flexible with setting up lessons and even made time when urgently needed, like before a test. My son had a great experience and can't wait to learn with Daniel again when he gets to HS physics.
I had Bri as a math tutor for the ACT. She was funny, professional, and very knowledgeable. I wanted to get my score up 4 points, and with her help, I was able to on practice tests. I would highly recommend this service, especially Bri, if you're looking for any kind of tutoring--standardized test or school subject. Thank you, Bri!
Called Daniel to help me at the last minute get ready for a statistics test. He met me the next morning and really helped me understand some concepts I was struggling with, especially word problems and figuring out which equations should be used. He was great to work with and really knows his stuff! Highly recommend him for math tutoring!!
I enlisted the help of Arbor Tutors to help me with test prep for grad school. Oh man! I am SUPER happy I did that. I got accepted into all of my top choices (Columbia, Penn, Cornell and Duke).
I had such a great experience. Before attending tutoring I got a C on my first math test, but after a couple sessions I got an A on every assignment including the midterm and final. I ended the semester with an A in my College Algebra class. She is such a great tutor and really helpful, I highly recommend!
It was a simple job. Six grade math. Most tutors either gave us the runaround or just didn't call us back. Eric at elite made sure we were satisfied from the first free trial to the session before my daughters test. Very well done
Blas helped my daughter study for her AP calculus midterm. He drove a long distance to my home at a days notice. They worked together for several hours. She did very well on her test. We can't thank him enough. I highly recommend him.
Math tutoring for my son to prep for the SAT. Went great Mr. Reid helped my son feel more confident in math.
Ahmed Shalaby is an amazing tutor for Jah my 9 year old son. He has instilled confidence in him and it has shown in his most recent test scores. The different techniques he uses are great and my son picks up on the strategies. We are currently doing twice a week on Monday and Wednesday and it has been a great investment. Jah thinks Ahmed is cool and he wants to keep showing him that he is getting smarter and doesn’t want to let him down. Thanks for all you for our family Ahmed. It’s appreciated
Jenny is tutoring my son in math and biology. My son attends a college prep high school. She has been very flexible with the schedule and really wants him to "understand" the material. Although it has only been two sessions thus far my child is excited to learn and he understands the material. She arrives on time , confirms the day of and is very professional. So far we are happy with her service.
I'm seventeen years old and took the new 2016 SAT test for the first time. My score was significantly lower than my GPA would indicate. I had several offers from tutors to assist in improving my SAT score. After reading the reviews and talking with several people, I choose to work with Sarah. I have had multiple sessions with her this summer. I highly recommend Sarah to be your tutor. She has a very pleasant personality and always makes sure you understand the current concept before moving on to another. She is very understanding of your schedule and will do whatever she can to work with you. I am ending my sessions only because to my pleasant surprise I have been offered an athletic scholarship after my senior year that will accept my current gpa and current SAT as completely satisfactory.
Cindy is an absolute visionary. I am a senior in high school, and I met Cindy a few months before I began this school year. My strengths academically are mainly in reading, writing, social studies, and philosophy, but Cindy has enhanced my knowledge and appreciation for mathematics, science, and my capabilities in problem solving as a whole. When I first met Cindy, I was in desperate need of a math tutor, but what I received was more than I could have ever imagined. Aside from her outstanding mathematical capabilities, Cindy has served as my mentor, ultimate problem solver, entrepreneurial guru, and ultimate inspiration throughout my college prep and application process. As a fellow performer, and actress, Cindy also has helped me explore my passion for theatre, and expand it to become a flourishing intrigue with anthropology, psychology, and motivational speaking. She is literally the reason that I am now travelling as a motivational speaker/ Body Positive facilitator to youth, ranging from middle school to high school. In offering her invaluable time, ambitious mindset, and incredibly compassionate demeanor, she has allowed me to find my true passions, and encourage others to do the same. Furthermore, Cindy is beyond this world amazing. Whether to call her an angel, an oracle, a goddess, a reincarnated Albert Einstein, or any other form of awe, I am not worthy to concretely say. However, I can attest that Cindy has absolutely changed my vision for myself and the world around me, my societal views and aspirations, as well as having enhanced my mathematical and test taking capabilities. Truly, Cindy is the most wonderful, kind, creative, talented, and intelligent essence, one could ever hope to meet or aspire to become.
We worked with Ahmed to help with my son's SAT math and we're very happy with Ahmed's work. Ahmed was able to identify my son's weak subjects and explain math concept very well. We can see more tutoring sessions with Ahmed for my son's future math classes and tests.
Lola's SAT math prep tutoring was excellent. Her teaching style is patient, encouraging, insightful, and informative.
Working with Stable Genius Prep was an excellent experience all around. Most importantly, Andrew helped me master the GRE within the short time frame I had to prepare for my test. Not only is he skilled at teaching the material, but he is also extremely helpful when it comes to test taking strategies. He provided a plethora of tips and tricks that went beyond the suggestions in my test prep book. Andrew’s support was invaluable to me during the stressful season of test prep and applying to graduate schools. Now, a year later, I am two semesters in at my top choice graduate program: USC. I highly recommend this tutoring service. Thanks again, Andrew!
I first spoke with Victor about AP biology tutoring for my son. Victor always replied quickly and gave my son a full study plan for his class and the AP test. We started with tutoring at home and also had a few online sessions using Skype and Victor's whiteboard app which really helped my son, especially when he was getting over a flu. My son said he learned more in a month with Victor than he learned in a semester in class. I also called Victor again for ACT test prep for my daughter. He connected me with one of his great tutors, Josh, who was also patient and professional. My daughter really increased her scores in English, Reading, and Science thanks to Josh and Victor's guidance. I'd highly recommend Victor and his team for AP and ACT test prep. Thank you both!
I have been getting tutored with Tutisto for a little over three years now! I always struggled with math and going to Pali High a school with an awful math department eager to make kids hate math. I was lost, and my hate for math only grew after my first year of math at Pali and it reflected in my grade. It wasn't that I hated math, it was more how it made me feel; stupid and dumb. Tutisto provided me with a very qualified tutor that taught me the information in a technique that was personal for me, something that public school lacks. After three plus years I can confidently say i no longer hate math and feel confident taking my college placement test! Never in a million years would I ever think that I could say something like that! During my senior year, I struggled with processing research papers and certain books, so Tutisto provided me with another very qualified tutor that is able to help me in a very personal way perfect for my learning style! I am beyond thankful for Tutisto as they have made an everlasting impact on my life!
Linnie is a GREAT tutor and she has really helped my children with every subject asked of her. My children were at risk for retention and with her help, they have passed all their benchmark tests. She is personable, patient and and overall EXCELLENT tutor!
