My son needed help with Spanish and Algebra. I thought Chemistry might become an issue later on. Eric found him a tutor able to do all 3! Allyssa has been great helping with everything. It was great not having to find separate tutors. Allyssa has been so patient and kind helping my son get back on schedule after his surgery. We love her!
Completely worth it is all I have to say. John explained many parts of the ACT, and explained how to understand, see, and handle the problem. A fantastic tutor to work with
I thought the price was too low but we were offered very good service. Just trust Arbor Tutors, just like everybody else.

Anish is an excellent GRE tutor. He offered to tutor me one-on-one in order to accommodate for my busy school schedule. He is very good at explaining challenging reading comprehension questions in simple yet clear ways and always stop to make sure I understand everything. Also, he asks what I would like to focus on before each session to make sure he covers all aspects that I want to improve upon. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs help with GRE.
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.

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.
Excellent sessions with Arbor Tutors. They are a very professional and wonderful company to work with. Gladly giving them a 5 star review!
As a Math tutor Sherill is very supportive and has encouraged me to keep trying, even when a times I feel that math is a mystery than can not be resolved. She also is punctual, attentive to my own doubts and bring materials to make the lessons more understadable.
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.
Ellie tutored my daughter Jessica for several months for the writing and reading sections of the SAT. Jessica learned grammar and vocabulary that she had not been taught in high school and she learned speed reading with greater comprehension. As a bonus, Jessica felt her newly learned writing skills carried over to better grades in High School classes and improved her college application essays. Jessica really appreciated the opportunity to work with Ellie to gain the confidence to perform well on the SAT. As a result, Jessica earned a very high score on the SAT and was accepted to the University of California in San Diego. I highly recommend Ellie as a tutor for the SAT.
Jessica offered excellent tutoring services; she genuinely cares about her students' progress and patiently answered questions if there is any confusion. Jessica also speaks four languages, so I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is interested to learn a second language as well!
Thank goodness we found Janet. She is the perfect tutor!! Down to earth, great with kids, trustworthy, thorough, and just fantastic. My son was behind in math and within a few months was at grade level and more importantly loving math! He gained skills and confidence and this was because of his work with Janet.
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 :)

Hello, I am a current university student at University of the Pacific. I am working towards a biological sciences major as part of the predental program. Right now, I am taking a semestral leave in order to study for certification exams and am looking to take this opportunity to help any student or individual who may need assistance in biology, chemistry, physics, math, English, and SAT or otherwise general study skills. My academic focus is very much life science-oriented, and I am most confident in teaching in those areas up to introductory college levels. In explaining the numerical details of my academic background, I have graduated from high school with a GPA of 3.75 and SAT scores of R: 690, W: 750, and M: 800. I have taken the following AP courses: Computer Science AB, Calculus BC, Physics C, Japanese, biology, U.S. History, and statistics, receiving a score of five in all but statistics (4). At the university, I am currently a junior with a GPA of 3.32. I have tutored at various levels, from middle school students to my university peers, at different environments. I have tutored in a classroom environment, working to help the students in conjunction with a lecturer. I have also tutored my university peers after recommendation from my professor, allowing me to build and lecture my own curriculum in a weekly session. Since I am simply taking time off from the university to study at my pace for an exam, I am extremely flexible in schedule and available every day. I look forward to working with you. Thank you. Joon
