My 13 year old son loved studying with John for SSAT. SSAT is a tricky and challenging test; we've worked with a number of tutors before, but John's pace, accessibility and sense of humor clicked perfectly with my son's needs and taste. John goes through a material quickly, but thoroughly, which helps covering a lot of ground in a reasonable time and makes every session very effective. It takes a number of qualities to make a good test tutor, and John has them all. My son's score improved after just a few sessions with John, but these sessions were also enriching and fun. We recommend him highly. Victoria
Camilla is the best teacher ever! She helped me to speak English without worrying about my pronunciation. She always speaks English during the classes, so it’s easy to learn through many examples and exercises, she carefully prepares and selects the material for each lesson. She is very patient and kind.I loved her lessons!
Nicolas worked with my son on his high school math. My son was having a terrible time in his classes, and Nicolas acted as a guide and tutor though the years. He was very patient and understanding, and always arrived on time for the tutoring sessions. In the end, my son wound up with A's and B's in the classes, and was accepted to his first-choice college. Thanks, Nicolas!
Tara was our amazing French tutor for one intensive, full-week course, for both my husband and myself, right before we moved to France. She is bright, intelligent, on-trend...and was able to customize our lessons to our needs ( I needed practical grammar & conversation, at an Intermediate level)... And my husband was a complete beginner, with concentration on business & finance by the end of the week. But more than academics, Tara is patient, warm, friendly, understanding and upbeat! We even had lunches out, speaking French, to help us with French culture, customs and manners!! We recommend her 100%!!
Alen was a teacher at our school for several years. Our students were consistently very satisfied with Alen's lesson plans and delivery. We happily refer our students to Alen if they are looking for professional tutoring services. Alen has an outstanding grasp of all aspects of English instruction from grammar to writing to test preparation.
I have been working with Linda since January 2017. I moved from Seoul South Korea in 2012 for school, and I knew I needed to improve my English. Working with a English tutor was my new year resolution to advance my English skill. I learned not only business english expressions, grammar, and presentation skills, but also how to continue to learn by myself which is one of the most important tools I learned from her. After I started working with Linda, my contract role as a UI/UX Designer at a global design software company in SF became a full time position. I've been enjoying working with her! She is so passionate, devoted and fun to work with.
My daughter was flunking her English course when we contacted Arbor Tutors. They set us up with a tutor who is able to help her with structure, I'll whining and grammar. I am very happy with the results. Most excellent.
Excellent sessions with Arbor Tutors. They are a very professional and wonderful company to work with. Gladly giving them a 5 star review!
Hope is an amazing tutor. She is very patient but firm with my daughter and provides encouragement throughout the sessions. My daughter truly looks forward to her time with Hope and makes every effort to have any additional assignments completed. This action from a teenager is a true testament to Hope's skills and her ability to nurture her students. So happy we found her and I would highly recommend Hope to all my family and friends.
Ellie tutored my daughter Jessica for several months for the writing and reading sections of the SAT. Jessica learned grammar and vocabulary that she had not been taught in high school and she learned speed reading with greater comprehension. As a bonus, Jessica felt her newly learned writing skills carried over to better grades in High School classes and improved her college application essays. Jessica really appreciated the opportunity to work with Ellie to gain the confidence to perform well on the SAT. As a result, Jessica earned a very high score on the SAT and was accepted to the University of California in San Diego. I highly recommend Ellie as a tutor for the SAT.
I would not hesitate to recommend Arbor Tutors to all of my friends and family. I wish we would've started with them in the beginning. Very good service with excellent tutors.
Before starting with a client or group of students, I establish their current capability. With clients looking to improve their English skills, I determine the current level of fluency and then tailor the course to that achievement level. I generally use guides I provide as well as current class material to focus the tutoring sessions. Where possible, I like to use interactive CDs and the Internet, as well. I speak some French and Spanish which is helpful especially when the client's command of English is more limited.
Rebecca did an excellent job acting as our translator for an employee training workshop. We will definitely be using her for all our future translating needs.
Les is a great teacher, and he came to our first meeting with great training materials that we could use as a guide. I've enjoyed working with him and am confident my French will improve rapidly!
My son really enjoyed his time with Rick. He put him at ease and was very patient and kind. I highly recommend him.
Jenna has done an outstanding job helping with my son's math. We always meet at the downtown library which is a neutral place. We meet for an hour. Jenna is always early for the meetings, prepared with lots of material, I can see that she has plenty of experience tutoring and she enjoys it. She gets very excited when my son does well and their meeting has a very positive tone. As a mother, it is very easy to communicate with Jenna, she has a great personality. I highly recommend her :)

I teach and tutor Spanish and Math. I am a native Spanish speaker and have taught children in the k-12 school system, as well as adults.
I have seven years of teaching a wide variety of subjects and age levels, usually with students with mild to moderate learning disabilities. I strive to show students the joy of learning and to help them overcome the blocks they may have developed over time in relation to a given subject.
I have a strong passion for spreading knowledge and aspire to major in literature. I am an extremely patient and understanding individual and enjoy helping other people with their education. I have tutored around five children all together through a volunteering program, and I absolutely loved working with them and broadening their perspective.
