I hired Rebecca to revamp my resume and cover letter. I was very impressed with her work. She stayed in constant communication with me and went above and beyond the call of duty. If you want your documents done right the first time, there is no need to look anywhere else. Rebecca is the real deal!
Thanks Eric our SAT tutor was great!
John Linneball helped me with SAT tutoring, especially in the math sections. The sessions took place at my house every week, but if ever there was a problem, communication was made easy through email. He really helped me and we clocked in many hours of math exercises. Not to mention, he gave me suggestions on what I should work on during my alone time.
One of the best tutors I worked with! Highly skilled tutors with wide range of skills and much more! It was a pleasure recommending Arbor Tutors.
Wang lao shi (Grace) has been my daughter's private Chinese tutor for two years. She works very well with young children - she also tutors several of my daughter's classmates - and she is adaptable, fun, caring, kind, generous, and skilled as a teacher. My daughter, who speaks no Chinese at home, is progressing in her Chinese studies very well and can handle the same assignments as her many Chinese classmates, I am sure, because she has Grace's little bit of extra support at home. I have no hesitations in recommending Grace. She is punctual, a very good and patient teacher, and I see real results.
I have been taking lessons from Lillian for a few weeks now. I absolutely love her teaching style. Each 1-hour class is intense and afterwards I feel like I have gotten to the next level. But more importantly it spurs me on to want to learn more. She is patient and kind, but quick to see where you are making a mistake and drilling you on that area so you rapidly start doing it right and forget your wayward ways. For anyone who is interested in learning Mandarin I highly recommend Lillian as a tutor!
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.
Great experience, Steve was so helpful and he went extra mile in helping me to reach my objectives
Angela really helped me improve my SAT score! I worked with Angela for three months before the December SAT. Together, we went from 650 on SAT Reading to 750. It was an amazing improvement and I am so happy for my experience with Angela. She is really knowledgeable about the test and knows tips and tricks to help you read faster and more effectively.
Tim was a great teacher for me! He was easy to talk to,understood my questions, and helped me improve my weak points. 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.
Arbor Tutors gave us that high level of commitment with sincerity to make sure that I would be ready for the exam. Marvelous company.
My daughter was flunking her English course when we contacted Arbor Tutors. They set us up with a tutor who is able to help her with structure, I'll whining and grammar. I am very happy with the results. Most excellent.
Excellent sessions with Arbor Tutors. They are a very professional and wonderful company to work with. Gladly giving them a 5 star review!
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.
Anybody who has the good fortune to have Mr. Wachhorst assist them on a project will be enormously thrilled! He is brilliant, professional and a pleasure to work with! Mr. Wachhorst has helped me with a variety of projects and I love working with him!!!
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.
Bob is friendly both my children are tutored by him. There grades are improving. He's very funny and well liked, they are comfortable with him and he was really flexible in making arrangements.
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.
Justin was a very patient and understanding math tutor. We worked at my pace, and he never hesitated or got frustrated when I asked him to go over concepts I was struggling with.
I am a highly educated and humorous English major. I have experience with ages two years through adults. I provide tailored lessons individualized to each student according to his/her needs and interests. I make it fun to learn English, and introduce new worlds to each person!
Vanessa has a great personality! She uses her knowledge of math in a variety of ways that significantly helps a persons comprehension. I am looking forward to working with her in the future.
