I would highly suggest Michael Davidson as a tutor. I am 43 years old and had been out of school for quite a while, but because of the tutoring I got from Michael, I passed my math GED test with flying colors! He is very knowledgeable, helps you to figure out which areas that you need to focus on the most and explained different ways of how to handle the math problems. He also provided positive inspiration to help me get through the toughest of math problems and cheered me on to the end! Thank you again for everything, Michael!
I am not one to leave a ton of reviews for services and I have had mixed success with Thumbtack, but I think this man is an unsung hero!!! My daughter has struggled in math for years, since grammar school, and is now in 8th grade. She continued to struggle with a different tutor. We have been working once a week with Mr. Matlak now for about six weeks and the difference is simply amazing. She just got her first "A" in a math quiz since grammar school and we both nearly cried in relief and joy. The two most important things about him - he KNOWS the concepts cold (some tutors DON'T), and he is PATIENT. I came to the conclusion that my daughter simply would not get the pace of learning or individualized attention in the public school setting that she needs for this particular topic. She is doing well in other topics but math is her Achilles heel. I didn't have the patience (or the knowledge) to help much and it became a source of frustration for both of us. It is such a RELIEF to see her more confident and not stressed about math now!! I can't say enough good things about Mr. Matlak. He promptly answered my inquiries, quickly provided two references who gave glowing reviews, and we are so happy to have him. We didn't want to go the Sylvan or other company routes - Mr. Matlak comes to your home, sits down with your student, and gets to work. I can't believe I did not invest in my child's future earlier in her school career - it is well worth it. We do an hour a week and it has made a VAST difference. I have no relation to Mr. Matlak (other than to sing his praises) and I would be happy to provide anyone interested with additional comments. Update April 22, 2015: Our daughter continues to work with Ray weekly and is now pulling a "B" average, coming up from the "D" average she was pulling when we started. Not struggling and spending so much time on math has allowed her to focus on her other classes and encouraged her to bring her other grades up as well as she prepares to enter high school. We couldn't be more pleased to see our daughter's confidence growing with respect to math. We'll keep him through COLLEGE if he's willing!! All kidding aside, Ray is well worth the investment, even if your budget calls for less frequent tutoring sessions.
Great ACT Tutor! Joyee is a great ACT tutor. He is patient, encouraging, and has deep insight into the type questions the current ACT tests include. We engaged Joyee to help my daughter with her ACT - focusing on Science and Maths. Her initial diagnostic test results were decent - 33 out of 36. After two months of Joyees help, my daughter proceeded to take her ACT in September. She received the perfect score - 36 out of 36. We are very happy with her results and she couldnt have gotten the perfect score in such short period of time had we not engaged Joyee. Joyee: job well done! - From James, Irvine, CA on October 5th, 2015."
Mr. Reid has helped me raise my grade from an F to an A in Pre-Calculus. Furthermore, he helped me train for the ACT. His tutoring is just phenomenal!
This has been a very positive experience. We hired Jasmine to tutor on the ACT. Jasmine is professional, attentive and has already helped a great deal. We've signed up for ten more sessions. Jasmine was well prepared, offered great insight and we look forward to seeing a significant increase in the ACT score.
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!
I was in desperate need of a tutor and luckly I found Jenny in time. She was not expensive and knows what she is doing. I'm very much going to request for her help again when I need help
Nancy's is the best tutor I've ever had I have 3 boys and 1 girls and I have had over 15 different tutors over the years and by far she is the best I have had she is everything I am as far being stern but she brings the softness that the student needs to get the best out of them my daughter did not bond with the three tutors before Nancy but she really loves Mrs Nancy as she calls her and she look forward to her session every week. I hired her to teach my daughter Spanish who has never taken before and she already can write and speak Spanish in less than two months she was so good I ask if she does any other subjects and of course she does it all so now she tutors my daughter in math and her grade went from a C to an A she makes sure the student understands the topic before she moves on and she won't budge or go any further unless the student totally understands it. If your looking for top shelf tutor look no futher and for the price it's a win win for me and my daughter thanks for making my daughter experience a total success.
Best SAT and ACT Tutors anywhere.
Excellent SAT and ACT tutoring.
I hired Arbor Tutors to help my daughter with chemistry and math. She ended up with As. Online tutoring works great with these guys as their system is better than what I expected. They were able to help us very quickly. Much better value than other companies
Impressed (and we're not the easiest group to impress). Oliver's professional and academic accomplishments bring credibility that others lack. His speech rang true on a personal-philosophical level for all of us. Passionate. Thoughtful. Profound.
They were flexible to my needs and strived to provide me with the best service. They actually taught me how to do the work instead of other tutors who basically do the work for you. Would highly reccomend brought my grade from an F to a B in four weeks
Mr. Nasir is the best choice for my daughter and me . He is encouraging me to learn math to , and I'm so ready to learn . Mr. Nasir is a very brilliant man and I'm so happy I found him .

I worked with Sam Kohli between 2014-2015 in preparation for my ACT examination as well SAT Math II, Biology, and Chemistry Subject Tests prior to applying for college. When I first started with Sam, I did not have the hottest test scores (29 and 30 on the ACT) and was in need for guidance for not only raising my score but, more importantly, gaining valuable test taking strategies that would allow me to perform at my peak when testing day came around. I very much enjoyed my time with Sam: both as a tutor and as a friend. Sam's genuinely friendly, determined, outgoing, and patient personality truly make him an amazing tutor and individual you want to work with. Because of Sam's efforts, I was able to score a 35 on my ACT, 800 on my SAT Chemistry, 790 on my SAT Math II, and 750 on my SAT Biology. I am now attending UCLA as a second year Neuroscience Major with a Biomedical Research Minor as a prospective candidate for applying to medical schools come 2019.
Emma is an amazing dancer, teacher, and overall person. I love working with her so much because her passion for dance feeds off into the room and makes everyone excited and ready to learn.
My 8 year old daughter has been tutoring with Patt for 2 years now and she loves going. She is doing so well in school and her grades have improved. Her scores were top in her class. she is above her levels in many of her subjects. If you need a caring and patient person to help your child with their studies she is a great person.
Deryk tutored my high school senior daughter in preparation for the SAT exam. She raised her score by 600 points which really helped out with scholarships and grants for college! Thank you so much! B. Nichols
