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.
MathMan was wonderful. He came to the house prepared and always on time with a plan for the day. I would recommend him to any family of some math tutoring.
Ben is wonderful!! He is easily the best tutor I've ever had. coming from someone who has struggled through math and had tutors my entire life, that is saying something. He breaks down concepts and applies them to real life in ways that help me understand. He also color codes his notes! He is available via text or email for help outside of tutoring sessions as well. I cannot recommend him enough!
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!
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!
Helped me greatly in my business math course in college. Passed with flying colors. Thanks Dan!
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.
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.
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.
My 8th grade daughter had been struggling with algebra. Since working with Karen, her grade has gone from a C to a B, and she continues to improve.
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.
Annette has been the main caregiver for our 3 year old twins since they were 4 months old. They adore her and I trust her completely with them. She is caring, conscientious and very loving with them. She is always doing fun activities with them taking them to the zoo, the park, playdates, crafts, etc. She has also helped the kids to make good friends that they are very close with. We also have a 7 ½ year old that Annette occasionally cares for. She is also wonderful with her, helping her with her reading and homework, giving her individual attention, and making her feel equally important. She also occasionally makes dinner and helps with errands. We have another nanny that would work on Annettes off days, and they would work together in order to arrange their schedules, switch days, etc. so that I never needed to be concerned about our coverage. We found Annette on care.com and she has been invaluable to our family. It is difficult raising 2.5 children in a household where both parents work full time. We feel very fortunate to have found such a wonderful addition to our family. She is very attached to the kids and has notified us that we are stuck with her until they go to college. :)
Dr. Mixson works with my son Nicholas during his homework time. He has been very patient and they work well together. He has really helped him gain confidence and self-esteem. He is especially great at explaining clearly how math works and my son is enjoying his homework instead of dreading it.
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!
Thru the years Michael tutored both me & my children; he is a wizard in math & science, patient & imaginative, he can make any problem seem easy & fun. His tutelage is a big part of the reason both of my children were able get almost straight As in the academically challenging private school & then went on to college to land on deans list almost every semester. He is methodical & thorough in his approach & gets great results, children of all ages like him & his approach. He has remained a friend to every child he tutored in our extended family & children look forward to work with him. Michael has been a blessing to our family & many children I know, I can recommend him with all my heart.
Vanessa has a great personality! She uses her knowledge of math in a variety of ways that significantly helps a persons comprehension. I am looking forward to working with her in the future.
I’m currently a math teacher in South San Francisco Unified and have been teaching for the past 4 years. My first experience as a tutor was as a freshman in high school, and I haven’t stopped tutoring since then! As a teacher, I’ve been lucky enough to have taught both math and Chinese to K-12 students. Although teaching two different subjects to such a wide age group was at times difficult, this challenge was right up my alley. I specialized in secondary mathematics instruction for my Masters Degree at the USC Rossier School of Education, and Chinese is my native language. As a tutor, I expect my students to work hard and be dedicated. I believe that no subject is too difficult as long enough effort is put in. I only have a few students at a time, and most tend to stick around for quite a while. I’m always sad when they leave for college, but even then, they call me from time to time for help! The beauty of learning 1 on 1 is that the student is able to set the pace of the lessons. As a teacher and a tutor, I have learned to be flexible and creative with my lessons to support my students' learning styles, and I welcome the opportunity to help guide future students' educational journeys as well.
I think it's the passion I have for tutoring subjects I excel at. I build rapport quickly with students, and am very professional and honest in my dealings. Once I have a client, I am dedicated to them, and very rarely miss appointments. I want them to experience the same joy I have experienced in learning certain subjects. This for me is the process of giving back to others, what has been so freely given to me.
I provide tutoring in math and Chinese to elementary and middle school students. I adapt a teaching approach to individual's learning style.
