My son needed help with Spanish and Algebra. I thought Chemistry might become an issue later on. Eric found him a tutor able to do all 3! Allyssa has been great helping with everything. It was great not having to find separate tutors. Allyssa has been so patient and kind helping my son get back on schedule after his surgery. We love her!

Dr. K was not only punctual but also very knowledgeable about the subjects ( calculus and statistic). I was able to pass these classes this summer because of his awesome way to tutor me. I have had tutors in the past but Dr. K is the best among all. I will recommend him to my peers or anyone else.

Nando is the best spanish teacher ever. He can teach you in so many different ways ! It is really fun. He instantly adapts to your way of learning. I have had several tutors and i am not saying the others were bad, but Nando is definitely my FAVOURITE ! You could definitely pay him more than he is asking for since the quality you get from his lessons is superior to any other private courses in language schools.

Monica has helped build up the confidence in math for my daughter. My daughter is doing Precalc and does it as an online program which is self paced. The first feedback my daughter gave was, Monica is very professional and it seems like she has a clear lesson plan in front of her and explains it very well. I would certainly recommend Monica for the students looking for help with math tutoring.

Youlian's lessons are very well organized and planned, and she has an absolutely fantastic ability to explain the nuances and subtleties of day-to-day Mandarin. Every lesson includes listening comprehension, reading comprehension (I'm just using Pinyin for now but she covers Hanzi as well), and conversation practice, and Youlian always provides me with very helpful feedback.

Alen is a skilled writing coach and teacher. I hired Alen to help with basic grammar and punctuation skills. She is supportive and creative, indulging my need to relearn how to diagram sentences. She is professional in manner but is easy going. She adapts her coaching and tutoring skills to fit my needs, and uses a variety of exercises that have improved my writing. With Alen’s help, I am inspired to learn and grow as a writer. I highly recommend Alen as a tutor.

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.

I have had the privilege and honor of working with Sharon and I wish to share my experience so those out there, seeking to find that special person find solace and comfort in reading this. Sharon is an extremely attuned individual, who clearly has been a master of her craft for many years. She will listen to you, while collecting a sketch of who you are, what you have done and where you wish to go as a professional. She, as a paintbrush does with colors, will formulate in the most concise, relevant and articulate way, who you are and all that you have done and wish to, assembled beautifully and formatted with all that you have asked for in writing. She is expert with many platforms, is determined, authentic and committed to a client she works with, and I could not have asked for someone better in all areas! Her main goal/focus is to get you where you need to be - regardless of how close or far one is to the goal. It is difficult enough to self-market, even for those who are good with this, but she will always find a way to make the narrative interesting and memorable in the way she places her wording and chooses her statements about the person she works with. In addition, she her sensibilities and ability to really listen to the person makes for a more valuable journey, since she has a natural way of being an introspective listener while allowing the person to self-reflect. This allows for one to be honest with one's professional quest. I chose Sharon among many that are listed for professional writers/job seekers etc. Sharon works at all levels of the corporate hierarchy so her knowledge base, expertise and approach are all integrated behind successful yield and results! She has this personal touch in the way she works with you, and you at all times feel she gets to know you, versus it being just another client. She takes great pride in her work, will research everything there is to know and is diligent within her time frames and deadlines she sets for herself. I could not have been happier working with Sharon. She is a rare gem and I would highly recommend her to anyone who seeks professional advice/guidance and coaching. She is in addition, an extremely gifted writer. Thank you so much Sharon for your time, wisdom and incredible skills!

Ms. Zepeda has been tutoring my homeschooled 4th grade son in Spanish. He is very bright but new to the language, and really needed a sharp, encouraging, supportive instructor to help him along. Raquel has been such a wonderful blessing. Warm, patient, intelligent, dependable, and professional--she's been fantastic for our child. He is learning a lot and is excited about the process, due in no small amount to her fun and savvy guidance. He really looks forward to lessons with her! I would highly recommend you see if she is a match for your family, as well.

Steve has been awesome so far. He is patience, great in explaining mathematical concept effectively and a fun person to work with . He has the tools (includes awesome video tutorial!) and experience to help his students. I need to improve my gmat score by 300 points (in a short time window) and he helped me create a plan of attack. It's challenging but with Steve by my side I feel really confident in achieving my target score.

Lily Brown is the best editor I’ve ever met. She always return the papers on time with high quality editing and constructive advice. I have been working with her for more than two years, and she never let me down. If you need a good editor, she is the one. I highly recommend Lily Brown.
