Kent was very helpful in helping my son, Harrison, with his calculus work. It seems like they're speaking a different language. I wish there were tutors like Kent when I was in high school!

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?

John-Michael is the professional tutor I needed in my life. Math was such a dull subject and he brings it to life with his enthusiasm and curiosity. I genuinely fell in love with math! My Pre-Calculus grade shot up to an A (from my dark past of a D) after working with him for 1.5 months. He's refined my work ethic and respect for this subject and I couldn't ask for anything better. I continue to see him every week and its always a pleasure!

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.

Mme Rombaut is an excellent tutor. In just a few weeks she took our daughter from barely being able to speak any French to genuine conversation. She is patient, kind, and gentle with a broad command of the french language. We highly recommend her.

Rafael is my Spanish Tutor. He is amazing! I feel very fortunate to have met Rafael. It was very important to me to find a tutor who was educated to teach Spanish. His passion, experience and education with the Spanish language is obvious when you speak to him. Rafael is patient, reliable, intelligent, flexible, generous, and funny. He teaches at my pace, he doesn't rush me and he makes learning fun. He provides me with the materials I need to learn, gives me homework, and always responds to my emails, texts, and questions. Some of the tools we use are a text book, a simple writing pad, online tutorials, videos, excercises, and quizzes. Rafael is a gem and I feel to fortunate to have found him. I'm finally learning some of the more challenging things that I've struggled with in past Spanish classes.

I hired Scott to help me with writing and composition of my essays for graduate school. I am so happy I met him and that he agreed to work with me. From day one, I realized that my work and ideas were in really good hands. We started working together at the beginning of the school year and he’s been with me every step of the way. My writing has greatly improved, as have both my grades and my personal and original voice, which I never knew I had! I highly recommend Scott. He’s a gem of a tutor and person.

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.

The best part of working with Angela is that she is very careful about teaching you in the simplest way possible. As an International student junior in computer science classes in college, I had a hard time understanding the lectures in class, so i would get weekly tutoring from Angela. She is not like an irresponsible tutor who will just tell you how to solve your homework and be done. Instead, she asks you a lot of questions and leads you to think until you get the right answer. It is really awesome. Also, Angela's bilingual teaching is great. She is very fluent in Chinese and we mostly used Chinese in class because I am a Chinese international student.

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!

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 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.

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.
