My son needed a tutor for his freshman year college English Composition class. Before hiring Carl, I had tried a couple of tutors, but didn't find them to be competent. Carl was a very pleasant surprise; he is both very knowledgeable and engages well with my son. I like the fact that he does't merely correct him and gives him answers, but makes him think and analyse the material. He is a rare find.
We started using Mike's services when we switched elementary schools last September. Our son was just beginning Common Core and we wanted to make sure he could keep up with the rest of the class as he is one of the youngest kids. Mike's lessons on basic math skills--such as place value, equations, counting money and telling time--have been an invaluable part of our son's academic success. Mike also makes math fun and interesting for our son--so much so that he looks forward to Mike's visits. He is friendly and knowledgeable and easy to schedule. We want to note that we had tried another tutor last summer. In the 12 weeks we used her (multiple times each week), our son did not progress much at all. That was the main reason we looked around for another tutor. (That and the fact that our son was starting to hate math.) Instead of multiple weekly sessions, it's one weekly in-depth session. Mike's background, skills and experience as a tutor are clearly evident. We highly recommend him.
We highly recommend Lois For tutoring. She is well known in Honolulu and has years of experience. She tutored our granddaughter when she needed to take the entrance exams into private schools. Lois has great knowledge of children and skill in getting them to do their work. Her lessons were challenging and fun. Our grandaughter could hardly wait to return to her next session. We wish Lois was here to tutor our grandaughter in her college SATS. Carol Lehman
Words can't describe how thankful I am to have met Joyee and his team. They were able to guide us through every step of the process which took a lot off of my shoulders. We have used other tutors and services in the past, but really nothing comes close to what we got here!
I am so thankful we found Jeff!!! We had worked previously with a different SAT tutor who clearly didn't know what he was doing. Although Jeff was priced higher than some of the other tutors on Thumbtack, I wanted to see if spending a little more would make a difference. It did - we just got the scores back, and my son raised his score by 400 points! I cannot recommend working with Jeff enough. My son loved having him come to the house. We will miss Jeff, but I hope others can have the type of experience we did. You won't regret it!
I really learned a lot from Daniel. He clearly knows a lot about the topics he tutors in, and knows how to explain it in a way that's easy to understand. His demeanor was calm and is very easy to talk to!
My son felt very much at ease with his tutor, and I've noticed his grades are really improving
The quality of Tutors is unmatched for the price.
Daniel was very professional and went above and beyond to give the tutoring help I needed in a somewhat obscure math topic, which included him spending time researching and working through the problems before the tutoring session to ensure that he could answer all of my questions. I would recommend Daniel to anyone looking for a quality math tutor who invests himself in your success. Thanks again for all the help Daniel!!
Let me start off by saying George was not only the best tutor, but also hands down the best math teacher I have ever had in my life. I have struggled with math and have tried countless tutors, but math just never made sense. I took my college algebra class twice and was never close to understanding or passing the class. I found George only two weeks before my math final and was soo behind and honestly didn't believe I had a chance of passing, but he was able to cover almost an entire semester of math with me and broke it down in the clearest way possible. Thanks to George I finally was able to understand math and passed my class. He really cares about his students and gets excited to see you learning and actually made me excited about math and I never thought I would be able to say that. I had a great experience with George and would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for an awesome tutor.
Matt is a great tutor with the ability to break down and explain concepts that are hard to understand to simple understandable concepts. My son is now very confident with the coming SAT. Matt got him to see how to approach the questions in a more effective way, especially in reading.
Lola is spectacular and patient! She helped me reach my SAT goal. I'm glad that she was my SAT tutor. Thank you Lola!
I am very impressed with the quality of service I received with Arbor Tutors. I love how you can split your hours between different tutors. I was able to use some hours for chemistry, some hours for math and some hours for English.
Arbor Tutors is so accommodating. What sets this company apart is the service from the tutors and managers. Outstanding company to deal with.
I've been very bad at math my entire life. I flunked algebra three times before I called Arbor Tutors. The tutor was very understanding and nonjudgmental. I can highly recommend Arbor Tutors.
Dani has a knack for teaching in a way that I've seen with a few others. I would highly recommend Arbor Tutors.
Great work. Reasonable prices. I would not hesitate to recommend Arbor Tutors.
Baraka is helping my 11 year old with Grade 7 Math. She says he is excellent and is patient and explains things clearly until she grasps the concept. Will 100% recommend him for tutoring. Thankyou Baraka.
If you want the best of the best, Todd Frost is the tutor to hire. My sixteen year old son has been struggling with math since middle school. I have literally spent thousand of dollars on tutoring programs that didn't work. I wish I would have found Todd back then, but better late than never. Thanks to Todd, my son is now on track and feels more confident in his current Geometry class.
Arbor Tutors is amazing!!
Marcelo is a native Spanish speaker, has lived in Pasadena for many years, and was an architect before he retired. He is a very pleasant person, and very easy to talk to. He is very flexible and non-dogmatic in his approach to teaching Spanish, and adapts his teaching style to his students' preferences. In our sessions we work through a Spanish language text book and do reading, writing and speaking exercises. As I have become more proficient, our lessons have focused more on conversation, which I enjoy. Among other things, Marcelo is an interesting person with a wealth of experiences, and conversations with him are always interesting. While not fluent, I have gotten to the point where I feel relatively confident in carrying on a basic conversation. Marcel is completely reliable...he never misses a scheduled session, and he is extremely punctual.
