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

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!

Cai laoshi (Lillian) is an excellent Chinese tutor! She worked with our kids this summer, ages 12 and 8. Lillian is very patient in teaching them, and is able to customize the teaching curriculum based on each child's learning style. She did a lot of songs with my daughter, which helped her become engaged and interested. For our son, she had him learn poems, along with vocabulary words. Lillian is very on time for all our sessions. She is also amazingly encouraging and uses positive reinforcement. She's responsive to emails and texts. Overall, our family couldn't have found a better Chinese teacher! She's a keeper! :)

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.

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.

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.

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.

    In the beginning, I was really afraid of talking to others in English because I know that I can’t speak English well. However, after some lessons, I become more and more confident and fell in love with the lessons. I tried speaking to others and they answered me. This greatly encouraged me.

    Shay was able to draw my son out and kept him trying no mAtter how many. Times he tried to give up. Her patience and skill at dealing with a child with high functioning autism helped him achieve top scores in state testing. She helped imbue him with confidence. I've told her many times she doesn't charge enough. Parents are truly getting a bargain!

    Jenna has done an outstanding job helping with my son's math. We always meet at the downtown library which is a neutral place. We meet for an hour. Jenna is always early for the meetings, prepared with lots of material, I can see that she has plenty of experience tutoring and she enjoys it. She gets very excited when my son does well and their meeting has a very positive tone. As a mother, it is very easy to communicate with Jenna, she has a great personality. I highly recommend her :)

    About

    I have taught school for many years. I am familiar with the common core standards and entrance and exit standards of specific grade levels. It is all about helping the student improve and thereby boost his/her self-esteem and confidence in the areas in which I tutor them. As a teacher, I had tremendous test scores. Four of my five "children" (now adults) have received the presidential academic award. I attended very difficult college prep school prior to college which provided me with stellar skills. I have had several years of Latin, French, and Spanish, as well as the usual repertoire of subjects.
