David and Beth, algebra and biology tutors, we're both kind enough to work together and work with both my children with two different learning styles. Phenomenal work. My daughter already said she wants to be a teacher like Beth someday

Our daughter was never very good at taking tests and was having a very difficult time with her Calculus. Her teacher is horrible. Arbor Tutors was able to do an excellent job at getting her caught up and ahead of the class. I agree, these guys are excellent!

John has been really helpful and responsive. He distills complex formulates into modular, simplistic fragments for me to grasp easily both with my GRE and Statistics study. Highly recommend him as a tutor/teacher.

Cristian is a very professional tutor, proficient in teaching vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation. I like that he brings a white board to write out clarifications of what he is teaching. I especially appreciate his patience. I am hard of hearing and he has to repeat words multiple times for me to hear and repeat correctly but he never appears frustrated with all that effort. He is a very good conversationalist, making it easier for me to maintain my end of the dialog in Spanish

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!

Tim was a great teacher for me! He was easy to talk to,understood my questions, and helped me improve my weak points. After working with him for a few months, I was able to understand a lot of the material provided in the SAT test and improve a lot on my practice test. Overall, Tim is a great teacher for learning how to improve your English , especially to prepare for SAT test.

Michael has been an invaluable English tutor for our son. He was able to artfully help our son with his college essay, guiding him through the writing process while making sure the essay was in our son's own words. Our son was accepted into his first choice college, partly based on this essay. Even after our son's freshman year of college, Michael continues to be available to tutor him. Michael has delved deeply into understanding our son's writing challenges, identifying specific steps to help him get on the right track. With his insight and gentle manor, Michael has connected well with our son, allowing him to be a very effective tutor. Michael is very responsive and flexible, providing sessions on Skype when our son needs them. Michael has proven to be a top-notch writing tutor for our son.

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.

Youlian has been fantastic! My favorite thing about her lessons has been how I started speaking from the very first lesson! Youlian follows the official Berlitz curriculum, so it's very well thought-out, but she supplements it with extra pronunciation drills and Pinyin work which has helped a lot with my Chinese friends actually following along with what I am saying!

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.

About

I teach conversational Spanish. I love a good conversation and meeting people. I am a native speaker of Spanish and I know very well the subtleties of This language, its formalities and colloquialisms. In my classes I like to integrate the language and the sociocultural contexts in which it comes alive. To integrate the language with the respective sociocultural and historical contexts in which this life works.
