We have a great experience with Elite home tutoring, especially our teacher Anena, she learnt our need and personalize the teaching for my son's personal interest, it's a great idea and it works very well.
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.
We are extraordinarily happy with the tutoring services provided by Dan at Arbor Tutors.
Grace does a great job of adapting the tutoring to areas that you need more work, providing real one-on-one customized tutoring.
Lillian has been tutoring my daughter in Mandarin, both speaking and writing for about six months through weekly 1 hour sessions at our home. Lillian has an upbeat and warm personality and is passionate about teaching. I am impressed at how she mixes up the lesson so that my fidgety 7 year old remains engaged the entire time. She uses a variety of print, audio and video materials. She focuses on proper technique in speaking and writing while always remaining positive and encouraging. We are so lucky to have found Lillian, and my daughter's interest in learning Mandarin has only grown!
My son is looking forward to his tutoring session.
Tim is an amazing teacher! I live in Palo Alto and needed specific help from him with social media posts, my ESL blog, editing, applications, etc. Tim has an amazing abilities to use English at its best. The fact that he's originally from Britain is definitely a major plus! He is gentle, kind, Intelligent and very broad minded and. Lastly, his services are fairly priced!
I am amazed as to the quality of tutoring I received from Arbor Tutors given the low price. The tutor my daughter had was very sweet and very patient with geometry. You can't ask for a better tutor than the one we got. We chose to do the online tutoring. Five stars all the way.
Arbor Tutors is a very well-run company. They hire the best tutors and are able to help you.
Rani is a great tutor. We love working with her. My daughter improved a lot with writing. I highly recommend Rani and I look forward to work with her in the next school years.
Got a tutoring package for my two kids and we have been extremely happy
Josh was an awesome SAT tutor for my son, increasing his scores 110 points in just a few weeks of tutoring. Prior to Josh, my son was enrolled in a commercial SAT prep course: 3 hours on Friday evenings and six hours on Saturdays along with 11 other students. My son did not respond well to the group setting. These sessions could not hold his attention, and it became a weekly battle to get him to go. After a few weeks, he quit the course and decided that individual tutoring would be a better option. Joshs style of personalized attention offered my son the back and forth interaction he needed to maintain interest and motivation. He had a great depth of knowledge (Yale graduate), as well as a warm and personal demeanor. He took the time to understand my sons individual style of learning and identified the areas with which he needed more assistance. In summary, my son benefitted greatly from Joshs talents, and I would highly recommend him to anyone needing one-on-one and personalized attention.
Hope has been tutoring my daughter in French, she has proven to be knowledgable, thorough and dependable. She brings a lot of extras to the sessions; like experiences with the French culture, and extra worksheets and study materials, etc.
Wyn is awesome. Kept my voice and made my book a hundred times better. Finished ahead of schedule and kept to his fees. Look forward to working with him in the future on my next projects. Hope my book provides me with the funds to pay him more for his great work!
As a pre-med student, with the ultimate goal of attending medical school, I have taken several exams over the years with hopes of achieving grades that would make me a competitive applicant to medical school. The one thing that was missing from my application was a well written personal statement, which unfortunately science classes do not help prepare you for all that well. I have written lab reports and research articles but a story about my life and journey was beyond my writing abilities. Scott absolutely saved the day. His ability to explain the process of writing a story that captivates a reader was fantastic. He spent as much time with me as I needed and helped me write the perfect personal statement for medical school. Scott has helped me more than I could ever repay him and I am positive he will be able to help you with any of your writing needs as well.
When Ellie Schamber tutored my son before he took the PSAT, he got the highest score in his high school, became a National Merit Scholar, and was offered all kinds of scholarships. Getting a good score on the PSAT is almost more important than the SAT. She also spent several hours with him before he took the SAT - he received a Regent's Scholarship to UC and graduated with high honors. Ellie tailors her tutoring to the student's individual needs and she is extremely effective. I highly and unequivocally recommend her.
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.
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.
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!
