We've been working with Lisa-Beth for several months now. She is tutoring my 13 year old daughter in writing and it has been a stellar experience. Lisa-Beth is professional, communicative, thoughtful and inspirational in her approach. She gives real value to my daughter and has expanded her view of writing as a medium of expression. Thanks Lisa-Beth!
Carl was referred to us by a very happy, satisfied student. He has been tutoring my Junior daughter in Algebra 2. She has always been challenged in Math and saves all homework till last. Carl has been a "spark" in getting her to not "hate" it so much. He comes prepared, energetic and dedicated to gaining a clear understanding of the topic, while interjecting humor into this very dry subject. Carl has been instrumental in my daughters improved Algebra 2 grade! Hurray!
We highly recommend Lois For tutoring. She is well known in Honolulu and has years of experience. She tutored our granddaughter when she needed to take the entrance exams into private schools. Lois has great knowledge of children and skill in getting them to do their work. Her lessons were challenging and fun. Our grandaughter could hardly wait to return to her next session. We wish Lois was here to tutor our grandaughter in her college SATS. Carol Lehman
Elite Home Tutoring went above and beyond to meet my daughter tutoring needs in a very tight time frame. I communicated with them over the weekend trying to get a tutor by Monday to prepare my daughter for a Tuesday test. They made every effort to connect me with a highly competent tutor in record time. Our initial session was very positive as my daughter, who is a bright 14-year-old in a demanding algebra class, had her questions answered in a way that made sense to her, practiced, and, as a result, started regaining her confidence. We highly recommend Elite to anyone in need of professional tutoring. Definitely worth it.
I am really pleased so far with Jeffrey's tutoring with my 11th grade daughter. The specific one-on-one focused methods he uses seems to not only get to the targeted areas she is needing help with, but strengthen her confidence in the whole daunting subject of standardized test-taking.
I feel compelled to share a great "find" we made last year. School had only been in session for two weeks before my kids came home lamenting that their AP Physics teacher left them totally confused and stressed out. Switching to a less demanding schedule wasn't an option so I decided to look for some help. Lord knows, it wasn't going to come from me or my husband! I found Daniel, a 2012 UCLA engineering grad who has been tutoring for many years. After the boys' first meeting with him, the level of stress in our household plummeted and the boys did well on their first physics test. We've decided to have him come regularly, just to make sure the boys understand the material and keep them confident. The boys ended up with A's in the class and doing well on the AP test. Daniel was able to help them with anything they didn't get in their calculus class as well. So as you stare the next school year in the face, if your child has any difficulty with their studies, especially in math or physics, consider talking to Daniel. He's a lovely young man and the boys really responded to him well.
I needed math tutoring for my son and hired Addy and Lilit for my son. I was very satisfied with his improvement and even more importantly, he was excited to finally get it.
Receiving tutoring for GMAT test prep. Steve is very friendly, knowledgeable, and gives solid, realistic advice. Will definitely recommend to all of my friends/anyone who needs a great tutor!
Called Daniel to help me at the last minute get ready for a statistics test. He met me the next morning and really helped me understand some concepts I was struggling with, especially word problems and figuring out which equations should be used. He was great to work with and really knows his stuff! Highly recommend him for math tutoring!!
Great teacher, very knowledgeable and professional. Esmeralda helped my daughters with understanding SAT test concept, time saving tips and strategies to raise their score. We are very pleased with her and look forward to continuing tutoring with her in the future. I highly recommend her.
My son is getting a lot out of the 1:1 tutoring. Sarah is really good. So happy with her skills.
Lizzy and Cindy were both an incredible help when it came to writing my Statement of Purpose for Graduate School. I'm now extremely confident with the product I was able to create with their help.
Marissa was always incredible to work with. She always kept things fun and interesting, while still making sure I was doing what I needed to do to succeed. I would 100% recommend her to anyone interested in tutoring help.
George is well prepared and helpful to students.. Our granddaughter found his tutoring to be flexible and friendly as he explained math problems...
Two things stand out about Matt’s tutoring. Beyond knowing the material up and down, Matt really focused on my daughter’s needs, both for the strategies on the test but also managing the anxiety and stress. And after an unsuccessful stint with one of the tutoring companies, she is so happy with the progress she made with him. Her SAT score went up 240 points!
Lola's SAT math prep tutoring was excellent. Her teaching style is patient, encouraging, insightful, and informative.
Ray knows his stuff! He helped me with my Algebra 2 and as a Math dummy/English major, explaned concepts to me in a way that I was able to understand. Ray is very patient, will answer all questions thoroughly and with confidence. His knowledge of Math is impeccable. Ray will gladly make time given short notice as I did to meet up for tutoring and was early for our tutoring as well. Don't waste time with mediocre tutors, call Ray and get the quality help you need and pay for.
Fantastic service. All the way from the manager to the two tutors we used.
We did in home tutoring with Arbor Tutors and were extremely happy. I would not hesitate using Arbor Tutors again.
If you want the best of the best, Todd Frost is the tutor to hire. My sixteen year old son has been struggling with math since middle school. I have literally spent thousand of dollars on tutoring programs that didn't work. I wish I would have found Todd back then, but better late than never. Thanks to Todd, my son is now on track and feels more confident in his current Geometry class.
After a couple less-than-stellar tutoring experiences via Thumbtack, I feel incredibly fortunate to have found Sol. My tutoring needs were somewhat unusual: after a 10-year hiatus, I needed to reacquaint myself with high school math in order to pass a placement test into a college-level calculus I course. Far easier said than done. Sol was up for the challenge, and knew just how to tackle it. After I had diligently dug out of my old textbooks from my parents' garage, Sol offered an anecdote about his dear friend and and former Cal-Tech college roommate when he was confronted with modern-day high school math. (Sol, you see, is not only an incredibly savvy tutoring professional, but also a retired JPL scientist--and a thoroughly interesting, thoughtful and personable man to boot.) As Sol's anecdote helped to illustrate, the scope of high school math has evolved in recent years, in ways even the former president of Hughes Aerospace, in a moment of complacency, would fail to appreciate. Pre-Calculus theses days focuses much more on the interpretation of graphs, and introduces concepts such as solving and plotting the inverse of linear and fractional equations, which wasn't even taught when I took the course circa 2000. At Sol's request, we set aside my old textbooks in favor of modern coursework that he provided. It was a few months later, at our last lesson, that I was able to truly appreciate how much Sol cares about his students. In his office, I happened to glance at a computer window where Sol had a folder with my name and files charting 'Goals', 'Progress' and 'Notes'. Sol's hard work and investment in my success paid off: on my placement test I scored a 98%--surpassing the score I had needed for calculus I and placing me into calculus II! As Sol predicted, the test had focused quite extensively on those more modern facets of pre-calculus that he had taught me. Now in calculus II, I feel utterly prepared, and only have Sol to thank. *Highly* recommended.
