Kent was very helpful in helping my son, Harrison, with his calculus work. It seems like they're speaking a different language. I wish there were tutors like Kent when I was in high school!
Only had 1 lesson so far. But my daughter understood him better than the tutors at c2.
Arbor Tutors is wonderful! The tutor was able to quickly answer my daughters questions and put an end to her frustration! A+
John is an excellent, detailed-oriented, and caring GMAT tutor. He has helped me tremendously in improving my score, given I was looking for helping in a few specific areas. He was willing to go out of his way to make time for me during the week to meet, and will do whatever is necessary to ensure his students succeed. I cannot think of a better individual who I would rather have as my tutor for the exam.
My daughter really enjoys having Minok as a tutor. Minok is very thorough, extremely positive, and above all a great teacher. We hope to work with her permenantly.
I have worked with Cristian for three sessions now and really enjoy his teaching style and energy. I asked him to work with me to help me with my conversational Spanish (took four years in high school 15 years ago) and am very pleased with the lessons and my progress so far. I highly recommend him as a teacher or tutor!
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%!!
Kathleen has a way to reach kids. My 8 year old son seems to like her very much.I would recommend her to anyone who wants to find a good Spanish tutor.
I looked on Thumbtack for someone to edit my academic paper, without expecting much. However, Alen did great work beyond my expectations. She read and edited every line of my paper, despite the fact that I am not a native English speaker. Alen not only corrected my grammar errors, but also changed the structure of some paragraphs to make my meaning more clear. Alen is also extremely efficient. I don't know how much time it took her to edit my paper, but she returned my corrected edition in less than a week. I really enjoyed working with Alen and look forward to doing so again in the future!
John-Michael is the professional tutor I needed in my life. Math was such a dull subject and he brings it to life with his enthusiasm and curiosity. I genuinely fell in love with math! My Pre-Calculus grade shot up to an A (from my dark past of a D) after working with him for 1.5 months. He's refined my work ethic and respect for this subject and I couldn't ask for anything better. I continue to see him every week and its always a pleasure!
The best part of working with Angela is that she is very careful about teaching you in the simplest way possible. As an International student junior in computer science classes in college, I had a hard time understanding the lectures in class, so i would get weekly tutoring from Angela. She is not like an irresponsible tutor who will just tell you how to solve your homework and be done. Instead, she asks you a lot of questions and leads you to think until you get the right answer. It is really awesome. Also, Angela's bilingual teaching is great. She is very fluent in Chinese and we mostly used Chinese in class because I am a Chinese international student.
Tim is an amazing teacher! I live in Palo Alto and needed specific help from him with social media posts, my ESL blog, editing, applications, etc. Tim has an amazing abilities to use English at its best. The fact that he's originally from Britain is definitely a major plus! He is gentle, kind, Intelligent and very broad minded and. Lastly, his services are fairly priced!
Great tutors for the money.
Arbor Tutors is a very well-run company. They hire the best tutors and are able to help you.
Awesome! One of the best Instructors I have ever had. Pio, has tremendous patience and has given me confidence to strive to achieve my goals. Thank you, Victoria
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.
I wholeheartedly recommend Laurence. She's a superb French teacher. She tailors her lessons to her students' educational needs, has a wonderful teaching style and is very patient. Laurence makes learning fun by incorporating different types of media and topics into her lessons. I enjoy learning about the French while learning French. If you're looking for a French tutor, contact Laurence et en avant.
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.
Mr Hodge is an excellent tutor. My son stated that he was well it's the price. He came prepared, he was early, respectful, and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend!
