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.
Arbor Tutors advised which was the best calculus class my son needed to take. After my son made changes to his schedule, it was not necessary to have the level of tutoring we had purchased. Arbor Tutors returned the money quickly and without question. The tutor we spoke with was highly knowledgeable. I would recommend this company.
I spent several months working with Grace through some intermediate mandarin. Really great tutor. She will also text you outside of the tutoring to keep you engaged and make sure you are doing your homework!
Both of my children (12 and 10 years old) have been with Marion for over one year for French private tutoring, and they love her!! Marion is a very dedicated educator, and French teacher, my children and I love/enjoy her teaching methods and approaches, which incorporate games, songs, movies and daily interaction objects, people that my children could relate to their day-to-day life. She is firm and extremely friendly, which is an excellent teacher would be.
John helped me raise my GRE score significantly. Working with John helped me gain the skills and tools I needed to reach (just above) my goal score. We studied the content of the GRE but also strategies for approaching problems likely to be found on the GRE, which proved invaluable. John was patient and encouraging throughout our tutoring and always gave me the extra confidence I needed to help me get through tough problems. It’s nice to have someone cheering you on when you’re trying to achieve a score that might seem hard or unachievable. John made the process of studying for the GRE as painless and fun as possible!
I am a non native English speaker. I was struggling with my comprehensive (thesis) paper. Laura helped me brain storm ideas for my paper, gave me constructive feedback, and helped me edit the paper. She spent a lot of one on one time with me and constantly stayed in touch with me. Laura is very caring and genuine and it shows in her work. She wasn't quite familiar with my topic (I am in healthcare), but she went above and beyond trying to understand what I was writing about so that she could help me best way possible. She is a great editor and a very sincere person. I am graduating this June and I may not need her help for academic papers, but I will always come to her for any writing and editing help. I will recommend her to everyone!
Nicholas's skill, patience, positivity and kindness have already helped our Son regain confidence and enjoy math again. We look forward to ongoing tutoring with Mathman!
Kristina is a warm, wonderful person who works with my son, a high school senior. She has always been super-nice to work with and pleasant. Her rates for Spanish tutoring are very reasonable. Most importantly, she genuinely cares about meeting my son where he was, finding his needs and trying hard to meet them. I highly recommend her for Spanish tutoring.
When I'm looking for a tutor, what I care most about is interpersonal skills. Lucky me! Ingrid is warm and engaging; she creates a relaxed atmosphere for the nerve-jangling practice of speaking (or trying to speak) in a second language.
Since December 2015 Christian has been tutoring my high schooler daughter, who had difficulty with Spanish grammar. Christian is the best tutor we ever had. He is very thorough, and explains grammar very well. He always prepares a lot of grammar exercises in advance, and makes sure that his student not only understood the new grammar concept, but can also use it correctly. He brings a lot of extra materials from different sources, and he also prepares exercises from the textbook that my daughter has to use at school. He really cares about the progress and grades of his students. In "emergencies" his students can count on him as well. Before tests he has always been willing to squeeze in an extra lesson when we ask him, even on Sundays. In addition to all that, he can make a stubborn teenager work. What more could we wish for more?
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.
Pio is very good at catering the lesson to my needs - where I am at in the learning curve, and helping fill in any gaps in my knowledge of mathematics. He also helps create a plan and gives homework to accomplish my goal.
Arbor Tutors is a very well-run company. They hire the best tutors and are able to help you.
Got a tutoring package for my two kids and we have been extremely happy
So far so good. My son did 3 sessions already (1hr. per session) with Vera Liang and we are still continuing his Mandarin tutoring with her using his High School provided Mandarin textbook. The schedule though is not as flexible because Vera just got a full-time job.
I wholeheartedly recommend Laurence. She's a superb French teacher. She tailors her lessons to her students' educational needs, has a wonderful teaching style and is very patient. Laurence makes learning fun by incorporating different types of media and topics into her lessons. I enjoy learning about the French while learning French. If you're looking for a French tutor, contact Laurence et en avant.
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.
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.
Working with Ryan has been, and continues to be, an excellent experience. Not only is he knowledgeable in everything he teaches, but he’s also flexible with scheduling and valuable mentor in multiple subject matters. Great tutor overall!
Karim gave an awesome massage. He was punctual, had a great table along with great oil and amazing hands . I will definitely book him again and I highly recommend him.
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!
