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.

If you are looking for a statistics tutor (for probability), do not hesitate to contact John! I don't have a strong background in statistics and was worried about doing well in my course but I am so happy that I found John! We covered challenging topics such as permutations/combinations, random variables, Bayes' Theorem, and covariance. He is amazing and so knowledgable... the quality of tutoring provided by John is simply exceptional. I had the privilege of working with John every week during my course and he was always extremely prepared and helped fill in the holes I had in my knowledge. John is super encouraging and really tries to make sure that you understand everything. With his help, I was able to master the topics covered in my class. In addition, his approach to tackling problems helped me ace my class... I truly could not have done that without his help!

Minok is an excellent math tutor for my daughter. Beginning of the school year my daughter has had some difficulties with her trig-algebra 2 class. She would like to improve her grade and prepare for finals. Minok came in fully prepared. I really appreciate that she genuinely cares about the student and she spent a lot of time preparing her class ahead of the time. Usually she will check with my daughter with what is on going in her class, and by time of tutoring she came with extra materials and practice to help the kids. By doing tutorial with her once a week, She was able to help my daughter improve her grade from B to an A and so far in the new trimester my daughter has been getting all As in her math test. We are very happy with her and will highly recommend her to all my friends.

This gentleman is very polite and professional besides demonstrating that he is fully qualified to tutor the subject, in fact, very qualified. In addition to tutoring at the house he took the time to call me and ask if she was doing well and whether she needed additional assistance on-line or if he could answer any questions on the phone. He did not have to do this, but it was clear that he felt it important to check on his student and her progress and understanding. This was not just a job to him, he took it as a personal goal to assist her in improving. I would recommend him without reservation to anyone and everyone.

I had a great experience with Kathleen. She was very flexible to meet my learning style. She starts speaking the language right away and provides homework to reinforce the concepts. My learning is currently on hold but I would definitely hire Kathleen again.

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)!

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.

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.
