I had Stuti as an English tutor for my son and couldn't be more happier. His grades improved tremendously. Stuti is knowledgeable, friendly, and flexible. Highly recommended!!
My 13 year old son loved studying with John for SSAT. SSAT is a tricky and challenging test; we've worked with a number of tutors before, but John's pace, accessibility and sense of humor clicked perfectly with my son's needs and taste. John goes through a material quickly, but thoroughly, which helps covering a lot of ground in a reasonable time and makes every session very effective. It takes a number of qualities to make a good test tutor, and John has them all. My son's score improved after just a few sessions with John, but these sessions were also enriching and fun. We recommend him highly. Victoria
Laurel is a fantastic tutor she is patient, precise and punctual. As an ESL student (my first language is Chinese), learning a new language can be very frustrating. However, Laurel knows exactly what to do and makes the learning process fun. We meet at the Glen Park Library weekly where we read and discuss a variety of materials. She definitely helps me reflect on the reading and become a better thinker. And she is always on time. There is nothing more I can ask for from Laurel. She is the best English tutor I have ever worked with!
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 a very nice teacher, proficient in italian, english and spanish.
Nicolas worked with my son on his high school math. My son was having a terrible time in his classes, and Nicolas acted as a guide and tutor though the years. He was very patient and understanding, and always arrived on time for the tutoring sessions. In the end, my son wound up with A's and B's in the classes, and was accepted to his first-choice college. Thanks, Nicolas!
I've had the privilege of working with David Foster for the last 5 years and I am continually impressed by his intelligent and vast amount of knowledge. Since middle of 8th grade to graduating high school, I have primarily come to David for help in math from pre-algebra all the way up to AP Calculus, however I've also thrown a diverse number of subjects in our weekly hour, from Physics, AP English, AP Environmental Science, AP Biology, and even Spanish. No matter the subject, after a tutoring session with Mr. Foster, I have always walked out feeling confident that I have the ability to understand my homework and perform well on tests and quizzes. He is an excellent teacher that breaks down complicated concepts into something simple and understandable, especially in AP Calculus. Along with being highly qualified as a tutor, he also truly cares about the success of his students, even going as far to offer me extra resources like study guides and "cheat sheets" for helping me remember theorems, formulas etc., which have been invaluable for AP tests. Over the years I have learned a lot from him, more than just school work but also how to success in my future academic career as I go off in college. He believes in teaching theory of the subject over just only doing practice problems which have seriously improved me as a student, not only in my boost of grades but also my perspective on how to learn on my own. I would highly recommend David Foster to anyone who wants improve themselves academically.
Jeff is very nice, humorous and friendly. He is my english tutor right now who is extremely patient on me and pointed out those mistakes I made on grammars while I was speaking. In addition, he is quiet knowledgeable and good at speaking Chinese which is very helpful for me as a Chinese student. I really appreciate that I could found Jeff as my tutor on Thumbtack! Thank you so much!
Kathleen has a way to reach kids. My 8 year old son seems to like her very much.I would recommend her to anyone who wants to find a good Spanish tutor.

I am getting a lot of strategies from my tutors Math and English tutors.
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.
Anish is hands down the best tutor in this area! I needed someone to tutor me for the GRE and he was exceptional. His teaching style and experience is exactly what you need to score high on the exam. Additionally, he offered to edit my personal statements for graduate schools. His feedback was amazing and he responds in a timely manner. Due to his help, I was able to write the perfect statement and score in the 90th percentile. I am going to attend my dream graduate program in the fall and I have a lot to thank him for. I am forever grateful for this tutor and his dedication to help people!
Hope is an amazing tutor. She is very patient but firm with my daughter and provides encouragement throughout the sessions. My daughter truly looks forward to her time with Hope and makes every effort to have any additional assignments completed. This action from a teenager is a true testament to Hope's skills and her ability to nurture her students. So happy we found her and I would highly recommend Hope to all my family and friends.
Ms.Frances Ambrose is very patient and she goes into every detail that you want to know. She is also very easy to talk to. Myself and my husband were pleased to have her tutor my 5 year old daughter. I would recommend her to anybody.
Rebecca did an excellent job acting as our translator for an employee training workshop. We will definitely be using her for all our future translating needs.
Karen is the best tutor ever. SHe has an amazing way with young people. They will do anything for her. She is reliable, knowledgeable and keeps things fun.
Janet is a wonderful tutor for my daughter. She is calm, friendly, knowledgeable and understands how to make math meaningful using hands-on methods to teach concepts. Great work!
Christina Moyle: A little over three years ago, Christina swept into our lives like a guardian angel. Neither my wife nor I could any longer give our dog his proper amount of exercise. Our dog, Rascal, loves Christina to death. He yips with his happiest bark when she arrives to take him for his walk. She walks him three days a week for an hour each walk. We grew to like Ms Moyle almost as much as Rascal does. She takes Rascal for a bath every month or so, and he not only enjoys the bath but he also comes home looking like a prize winner at the Westminster Dog Show competition. One could not hope for a better dog walker than Ms Moyle.
April was a great help when writing a creative essay for my AP Lang class. She helped me with sentence structure, grammar and word choices. She definitely knows what she is talking about! Overall, she was very helpful, responded quickly and was a great tutor!!
Jacquie has been a really helpful tutor for my daughter. She knows the subject matter well and explains it in a way my teen can understand. She is a great tutor!
