Carl has helped me prepare for the SAT greatly. What sets Carl apart from other tutors is that he is very concise in his explanations and gives many vivid examples that further explain a topic or concept. It is because of these vivid examples that help me retain the information that is needed to score well on the test. He doesn't beat around the bush, which in my opinion is vital for a tutor. Another great aspect of Carl's tutoring is his ability to put what is stated in the text into context. He takes what might seem like a foreign topic and condenses it down into something much more familiar. Carl has a great sense of humor, is kind, and has been very helpful in helping me prepare for the SAT. I would highly recommend his services.
Mike is so very patient with my son and takes the time to explain things in a way he can comprehend. Mike also gives him tips to use in class that will help him remember formulas etc. that are very helpful. I'd recommend him as a math tutor hands down.
Lois is a very professional and considerate tutor. She is helping my writing skill and accent. In addition, she has a producer background and share her knowledge and expertise. She teaches me the entertainment business cultures and how to be a strong female producer in US. She is not just an English teacher. She loves to motivate and inspire her students. I highly recommend her.
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 am not one to leave a ton of reviews for services and I have had mixed success with Thumbtack, but I think this man is an unsung hero!!! My daughter has struggled in math for years, since grammar school, and is now in 8th grade. She continued to struggle with a different tutor. We have been working once a week with Mr. Matlak now for about six weeks and the difference is simply amazing. She just got her first "A" in a math quiz since grammar school and we both nearly cried in relief and joy. The two most important things about him - he KNOWS the concepts cold (some tutors DON'T), and he is PATIENT. I came to the conclusion that my daughter simply would not get the pace of learning or individualized attention in the public school setting that she needs for this particular topic. She is doing well in other topics but math is her Achilles heel. I didn't have the patience (or the knowledge) to help much and it became a source of frustration for both of us. It is such a RELIEF to see her more confident and not stressed about math now!! I can't say enough good things about Mr. Matlak. He promptly answered my inquiries, quickly provided two references who gave glowing reviews, and we are so happy to have him. We didn't want to go the Sylvan or other company routes - Mr. Matlak comes to your home, sits down with your student, and gets to work. I can't believe I did not invest in my child's future earlier in her school career - it is well worth it. We do an hour a week and it has made a VAST difference. I have no relation to Mr. Matlak (other than to sing his praises) and I would be happy to provide anyone interested with additional comments. Update April 22, 2015: Our daughter continues to work with Ray weekly and is now pulling a "B" average, coming up from the "D" average she was pulling when we started. Not struggling and spending so much time on math has allowed her to focus on her other classes and encouraged her to bring her other grades up as well as she prepares to enter high school. We couldn't be more pleased to see our daughter's confidence growing with respect to math. We'll keep him through COLLEGE if he's willing!! All kidding aside, Ray is well worth the investment, even if your budget calls for less frequent tutoring sessions.
This past summer, I was in search of a tutor to assist my brother with his preparation for the ACT. A number of conversations with local tutors proved fruitless, as they were either too expensive or had rigid schedules. After doing some research online, I came across Joyees profile on Wyzant. I was particularly impressed by his extensive background in ACT tutoring having worked for some well-regarded test preparation companies. In addition, his rates were extremely fair. I enlisted Joyees tutoring services via skype, and my experience was remarkable. In spite of the three hour time difference between the east coast and west coast, Joyee remained a consummate professional with regard to his scheduling and punctuality. Most importantly, he is fully invested in his students, demonstrating patience and understanding whilst pushing them to achieve their full potential. Prior to working with Joyee, my brother had an initial diagnostic score of 27. After six weeks of tutoring with Joyee my brother scored a 35 on the September 2015 ACT. I highly recommend Joyee, his tutoring services are the perfect complement for any motivated high school student seeking help with test preparation.
AMAZING!!! I used both an in-person and online tutor. One for math and the other for English for the GMAT and GRE. I wasn't sure which test to take - so my tutors helped me with both!!! Thanks so much to Adam and Sarah!! They did an excellent job. I improved my scores over 20% in both tests. I ended up with a 740 on the GMAT and top 5% for math and verbal for the GRE. Couldn't be happier!!!!
Mr. Reid is a great tutor. He helped me get a better understanding on how to solve quadratic equations, completing the square and on exponential functions. I have scheduled to meet with him once a month for more tutoring.
Dea is an amazing tutor and has helped my daughter tremendously in 7th grade math. She has this ability to be firm and disciplined without intimidating the student. I would highly recommend her.
Jenny is an awesome tutor!!! She's helping my daughter and her friend with Algebra 1, and I really wish that I would've got her in the beginning of the school year, then my daughters grades would be perfect. She's very professional and punctual as well. If your looking for a tutor, Jenny is the one for the job.
She's wonderful! I haven't needed Math tutoring for any of my previous degrees (I have a B.A., Ed.M, and Ed.D), I'm an educator by training, and I have taught math before. So I wasn't sure what to expect, all I knew was I needed help brushing up on my math in anticipation of the new MBA program I'm going to be starting in the Fall. Finding the right tutor is critical so I interviewed/worked with a number of them before I finally decided to go with her. She was an excellent tutor. I felt like I learned a lot in our very first session and her approach to the material made it easy for me to understand. I understand that there have been some comments about language - I don't think that is an issue. She knows her stuff and if you listen to what she says your math will definitely improve. As a math teacher, educator, and now student I fully endorse her.
David is an excellent tutor. My son gets a lot of knowledge and love to study with him every day. I have not found another science tutor like him after he moved. We miss him a lot and wish he comes back NC to tutor my son one day in the future.
Nancy's is the best tutor I've ever had I have 3 boys and 1 girls and I have had over 15 different tutors over the years and by far she is the best I have had she is everything I am as far being stern but she brings the softness that the student needs to get the best out of them my daughter did not bond with the three tutors before Nancy but she really loves Mrs Nancy as she calls her and she look forward to her session every week. I hired her to teach my daughter Spanish who has never taken before and she already can write and speak Spanish in less than two months she was so good I ask if she does any other subjects and of course she does it all so now she tutors my daughter in math and her grade went from a C to an A she makes sure the student understands the topic before she moves on and she won't budge or go any further unless the student totally understands it. If your looking for top shelf tutor look no futher and for the price it's a win win for me and my daughter thanks for making my daughter experience a total success.
Arbor tutors is now my "go to" for any subject.Love them! Thanks sooo much!
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.
I have a horrible science teacher but I was able to get excellent help from an Arbor tutor. Best tutors around. Fantastic deal.
Great work. Reasonable prices. I would not hesitate to recommend Arbor Tutors.
Todd is the only reason I passed my college calculus and statistics classes. He is amazing and explains everything in a way that is easy to understand and sticks with you. There is no better tutor! Highly recommended!
My daughter has been working with Peggy on her French for about a month and she has already brought home two As and a B+. We are so grateful to have Peggy as my daughter’s French tutor.
Eric has done an excellent job in assisting my daughter on her college math course. Very patient, takes time to explain solutions to problems, very dependable, very happy with his services.
Just take a look at their website and you will see some of the amazing tutors they hire. It is a night and day difference between Arbor and other companies around. High quality.
