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

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!

I've had the privilege of working with David Foster for the last 5 years and I am continually impressed by his intelligent and vast amount of knowledge. Since middle of 8th grade to graduating high school, I have primarily come to David for help in math from pre-algebra all the way up to AP Calculus, however I've also thrown a diverse number of subjects in our weekly hour, from Physics, AP English, AP Environmental Science, AP Biology, and even Spanish. No matter the subject, after a tutoring session with Mr. Foster, I have always walked out feeling confident that I have the ability to understand my homework and perform well on tests and quizzes. He is an excellent teacher that breaks down complicated concepts into something simple and understandable, especially in AP Calculus. Along with being highly qualified as a tutor, he also truly cares about the success of his students, even going as far to offer me extra resources like study guides and "cheat sheets" for helping me remember theorems, formulas etc., which have been invaluable for AP tests. Over the years I have learned a lot from him, more than just school work but also how to success in my future academic career as I go off in college. He believes in teaching theory of the subject over just only doing practice problems which have seriously improved me as a student, not only in my boost of grades but also my perspective on how to learn on my own. I would highly recommend David Foster to anyone who wants improve themselves academically.

Jeff is very nice, humorous and friendly. He is my english tutor right now who is extremely patient on me and pointed out those mistakes I made on grammars while I was speaking. In addition, he is quiet knowledgeable and good at speaking Chinese which is very helpful for me as a Chinese student. I really appreciate that I could found Jeff as my tutor on Thumbtack! Thank you so much!

Cai laoshi (Lillian) is an excellent Chinese tutor! She worked with our kids this summer, ages 12 and 8. Lillian is very patient in teaching them, and is able to customize the teaching curriculum based on each child's learning style. She did a lot of songs with my daughter, which helped her become engaged and interested. For our son, she had him learn poems, along with vocabulary words. Lillian is very on time for all our sessions. She is also amazingly encouraging and uses positive reinforcement. She's responsive to emails and texts. Overall, our family couldn't have found a better Chinese teacher! She's a keeper! :)

I was having some difficulties with Organic Chemistry until I started my tutoring sessions with Arbor Tutors. My tutor was immensely helpful. She explained everything well and in a easy to understand way. Now I'm not confused in my classes anymore.

The tutor is excellent with my child. She keeps the attention of my child and they do fun assignments that the tutor has created in order to keep my child engaged in reading and in wanting to read more and on her own. The tutor will also speak to the teacher and attend school meetings so that they can have a better understanding on what is being taught at school. They also want to get the feedback from the teacher so that they can better assist the student. I have already referred my child's tutor to 2 people at her school. I would highly recommend for anyone to use their tutoring services.

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.

Shay was able to draw my son out and kept him trying no mAtter how many. Times he tried to give up. Her patience and skill at dealing with a child with high functioning autism helped him achieve top scores in state testing. She helped imbue him with confidence. I've told her many times she doesn't charge enough. Parents are truly getting a bargain!
