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.

I am super thrilled that Mr. Young is tutoring our son. In this technology induced Math learning environment I felt that my son was learning how to use the gadgets to get the answers right. I am glad to see that with Mr. Young's assistance we are now focusing on learning the subject and more importantly laying the right foundation!

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!

Darya tutored and advised me throughout my senior year of high school and my first year at college. Having Darya by my side throughout the stress of a year and a half journey has had a significant impact in my life. Although Darya's main responsibility was to tutor me for my Advanced Placement (AP) Literature class, she went above and beyond to what I expected of an English tutor. She helped me find my inner voice as a writer through tutoring me about grammar, organization, and vocabulary. She also helped boost my confidence as an underprivileged Latina studying in the STEM field as a computer science major at the University of California: Santa Cruz. I passed both my AP Government and AP Literature classes and tests which is significant because both required a heavy amount of analytical writing; I graduated high school with honors and with the highest cumulative grade point average (GPA), 3.7, at any time of my academic career. One week before I was going to take my SAT for the third time, I mentioned to Darya that I was struggling understanding a large portion of the Math section of the test. To my surprise, she was thoroughly capable skilled in tutoring me in math, along with English. In less than seven days, Darya was able to successfully prepare me for my last SAT test; subsequently, my SAT score improved by more than 100 points. If we had more time to go through the preparation book, I could have further surpassed this amazing progress. Another aspect in which Darya supported me in my college application and preparation process was in guiding me to refine my college essays for both private and public universities: as a result, I was accepted to more than half of the colleges that I applied to. Finally, I am most grateful for Darya and her efforts towards my success because of the high number of scholarships that I received in the second semester of my senior year in high school. Through Darya’s excellent editing and writing abilities, I was able to accumulate more than $200,000 in scholarship rewards from four different organizations. I could never have imagined this much triumph before meeting Darya; without these scholarship awards, I would have been forced to work during my breaks and during school to afford a college education. Now, all that I have to worry about is learning as much as I can while I am at UCSC. On account of my strong achievements in less than a year with Darya, I still utilize the many tips and lessons that she has instilled in me. As a result of this, I excelled in my classes at UCSC with a cumulative GPA of 3.6. Because of my outstanding academic success in the first quarter of college, I was exclusively invited by the university to apply to the College Scholars Program; this two-year program selects 20 students out of about 200 students applying from each college at UCSC to help give them meaningful academic challenges. Not only do I recognize Darya as one of the most significant people in my life because of my solid academic accomplishments, but also due to the genuine passion she holds to be sure that her tutees succeed. As her tutee, she constantly reminded me of my own abilities to encourage my confidence. We are still in contact today which further demonstrates her enthusiasm for her tutees. She is evidently benevolent, motivated, and intelligent, and I highly recommend her tutoring and guidance talents to any student who is fortunate enough to be her tutee.

Justin was a very patient and understanding math tutor. We worked at my pace, and he never hesitated or got frustrated when I asked him to go over concepts I was struggling with.

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)!

Viktor is an excellent math tutor. I came to him having not seen any math for eight years, and having not actually learned much of the math I had taken in high school. He started at the beginning and patiently made his way through all of the material I had to cover. Even though I started my tutoring really late in the game for the my test date, he made a big effort to meet with me as often as I needed to and tried to teach me as much as possible in time for my test date. He is really patient and very encouraging, and does an excellent job of explaining concepts that are confusing to people. I have had a lot of math tutors over the years, and Viktor is by far the best one. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

It is very difficult to find an AP calculus tutor who knows what here she is talking about. Then I had heard of Arbor Tutors through a friend and called them. The tutor met me at the library every Saturday for 12 weeks and completely turned around my grades. I went from a C average to a high B+ and now I'm starting to get A's. Yay for Arbor Tutors!

Karen is a really wonderful mentor and tutor. She has been working with my kids for the past six years and she has a great way of setting high expectations while being supportive at the same time. I've seen her work with a variety of different styles of learners, and she seems to really "get" kids, and be willing to meet them where they are. What I most appreciate about Karen is her commitment to working with their strengths and building up the areas where they need improvement. Karen genuinely likes kids - and she enjoys working with them. It has been a huge blessing to have worked with Karen.

About

Hello, I am a current university student at University of the Pacific. I am working towards a biological sciences major as part of the predental program. Right now, I am taking a semestral leave in order to study for certification exams and am looking to take this opportunity to help any student or individual who may need assistance in biology, chemistry, physics, math, English, and SAT or otherwise general study skills. My academic focus is very much life science-oriented, and I am most confident in teaching in those areas up to introductory college levels. In explaining the numerical details of my academic background, I have graduated from high school with a GPA of 3.75 and SAT scores of R: 690, W: 750, and M: 800. I have taken the following AP courses: Computer Science AB, Calculus BC, Physics C, Japanese, biology, U.S. History, and statistics, receiving a score of five in all but statistics (4). At the university, I am currently a junior with a GPA of 3.32. I have tutored at various levels, from middle school students to my university peers, at different environments. I have tutored in a classroom environment, working to help the students in conjunction with a lecturer. I have also tutored my university peers after recommendation from my professor, allowing me to build and lecture my own curriculum in a weekly session. Since I am simply taking time off from the university to study at my pace for an exam, I am extremely flexible in schedule and available every day. I look forward to working with you. Thank you. Joon

I was tutoring back home for six years. There is one proverb stating that in order to know math, you have to do math. First, I will explain and give examples for my students. After that, I will give them different kinds of exercises to work out.I can teach geometry, trigonometry ,different kinds of function like polynomial exponential logarithm rational and others plus calculus.

Everyone has a gift. Mine is teaching math to K-12 students. If one explanation doesn't reach the student, try another. I ask the student questions all along the way; this way, the student knows her and his logic is correct, and that builds confidence. The Village Tutor also teaches carpentry and scale model building.
