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!
Only had 1 lesson so far. But my daughter understood him better than the tutors at c2.
I thought the price was too low but we were offered very good service. Just trust Arbor Tutors, just like everybody else.
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.
John Bertinetti helped me study for the GMAT exam over the summer of 2017 with concentrated sessions to review GMAT Quant. John got me started on a study path by sharing info about the best study resources for my problem areas, and would meet with me once or twice a week to go over key Quant problems that I needed help solving. John is an ideal tutor for students who are good at keeping themselves on track without a structured curriculum. Great value, flexible scheduling, and clear explanations of problems are all huge wins with him. About halfway through the summer, I realized that I needed a structured class and more discipline to keep myself on schedule, so I supplemented my study sessions with John with an independent online class with a live teacher. Key lessons w/John: John is all about understanding the concepts behind a problem before sharing tricks; his method is great for learners like me who need to understand the math conceptually and don't want to just memorize formulas. We did a lot of work on combinatorics and probability, which were my challenge areas. He was a great and affordable supplemental resource for me beyond the class. Results: I went from a 580 on my Manhattan GMAT diagnostic to a 730 score on the actual GMAT after 3 months of light study followed by 2 months of intense study.
I'm so glad to have found Soham as my daughter's tutor. He was exceptionally talented in analysing the gaps and providing what she needed to improvise. I like the way he tutors by asking questions that provokes critical thinking in students. It's been 3 classes so far and I already see her brimming with confidence towards her SAT's and AP exam's. I highly recommend him!!!
I have been taking Mandarin Chinese for a few years and have had the pleasure for the last 6 months of having Lilian as my tutor. I enjoy her conversational approach taken from printed material. There's no English in it, so it's all memorization. It is both growing my vocabulary and helping me have more meaningful dialog with native Chinese speakers. Lilian is a wonderful intelligent instructor. Some of the course work doesn't stick in my head easily, so I appreciate her patients and persistence helps to that after awhile that which was difficult is now easy. My class with her is one of the highlights of my week.
I am super thrilled that Mr. Young is tutoring our son. In this technology induced Math learning environment I felt that my son was learning how to use the gadgets to get the answers right. I am glad to see that with Mr. Young's assistance we are now focusing on learning the subject and more importantly laying the right foundation!
Kathleen has made a tremendous difference in our son's Spanish skills. He's had a difficult teacher in school this year and Kathleen has helped to build this knowledge, understanding and confidence with both written and verbal work. Our son has said that Kathleen has been a tremendous help to him. She is reliable and I've felt she genuinely wants her students to succeed.
Alen was a teacher at our school for several years. Our students were consistently very satisfied with Alen's lesson plans and delivery. We happily refer our students to Alen if they are looking for professional tutoring services. Alen has an outstanding grasp of all aspects of English instruction from grammar to writing to test preparation.
Yevgeny tutored my son in Calculus and we are very happy with the results. My son didn't even like the idea of getting tutored; After I convinced him that he needs to get some help, he tried a couple of other tutors; Yevgeny was the first one he was happy with; Yevgeny is a no-nonsense type of person; He is knowledgeable and focused on getting the student to understand the concepts; I would highly recommend him.
Angela does the best job of explaining concepts for AP/SAT if you are trying to learn something outside of school. We did our tutoring over the computer, but I actually found it more engaging than in person. For example, I was confused about cos (180degrees), because I hadn't learned about it in school yet. Angela's explanation also made 10x more sense than what my math teacher would say. Now I FINALLY understand how to find cos (180degrees)!
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.
I have been studying for the GMAT for 3 years, have had 3 private tutors and have taken 2 courses. The GMAT consumed me, until I hired Bryce. After 3 weeks of tutoring my score jumped 60 points because Bryce taught me how to think about the GMAT in a way that Kaplan, Stratus or other courses simply do not teach. Customized, personalized learning. I knew the equations cold, but was missing the critical reasoning and strategic mindset necessary to take the test. Bryce re-focused me and re-framed how to think about the GMAT. Quite simply, if you live in the Bay area and need to drastically improve your score in a constrained amount of time and within a certain budget, you need to choose Warwick Strategies.
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!
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!!!
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.
Wesley met with my son who has been struggling in his College Statistics class. My son could not believe his vast knowledge and capabilities with the subject. After and exhaustive search we have found an excellent tutor! Now I plan on having him tutor my daughter in Pre- Calculus as well.
