My daughter and her friend have met with John 3 times so far for SAT prep. They have been very happy with each session. The first session was diagnostic and the subsequent sessions have been spent discussing problems and techniques. John is very easy to work with. They do not feel bad when they make mistakes or do not understand a concept. We plan to do a total of 10 sessions before taking the SAT.
I have been extremely happy with the tutoring and coaching I received from Arbor Tutors to improve my GMAT score. My overall GMAT score was stuck in the low 600's (and I struggled for months to get it there) but quickly improved to 700s after receiving insightful diagnostic of my strengths/weaknesses followed by a large number of specific tasks to improve my weaknesses. I'm still shocked with the ease and speed with which my tutor was able to help me improve my score. Don't get me wrong, you will be given a large amount of work but the work is focused on what will benefit you the most and help you improve quickly. I strongly recommend tutoring from Arbor Tutors if you are looking to make major improvements on your score. I took a highly regarded GMAT prep course first and although the course was excellent, the personalized training, test taking strategies, in depth explanations, and coaching from Arbor Tutors was orders of magnitude better. I also echo the comments of previous reviewers: Arbor Tutors is invested in your success and provides a wide range of unique resources tailored to your needs to help you get a score far above your expectations. I honestly never thought I had a real chance of scoring above a 90th percentile on the GMAT but Steve at Arbor Tutors showed me how to make this reality.
Grace Wang is my Mandarin tutor, and I have been taking private lessons with her for many years, first for SAT II Chinese prep and then for advance reading, writing, and conversation. Grace has always been very fun and approachable, and we have a great time conversing and reading about a wide range of topics such as Chinese history, idioms, and daily life. Her own understanding of Mandarin is very strong, and she takes the time to explain the nuances of the language. She also utilizes many different resources: online learning tools, textbooks, novels, etc. Most importantly, Grace is very patient, knowledgable, and flexible. I can suggest any kind of material to review for our classes, and she will always have insightful things to add. I always look forward to my Mandarin lessons with her!
Met with John once or twice a week over the course of several months during my GMAT preparation. I started out with a 13th percentile quantitative score. After working with him I was able score in the 73rd percentile on my first official GMAT, exceeded my initial goal by scoring ABOVE a 700. I had no formal quantitative training or experience prior to studying; the last math class I took was as a sophomore in high school (a decade ago). Each time I met with John, he was able to go beyond simply correcting my mistakes. He clearly explained the overarching reasoning, strategy and logic behind a certain problem. This is something the video explanations in GMAT curriculum do not do as thoroughly as John. If you're looking for someone to discuss GMAT concepts with in a clear and intelligent way, I highly recommend him. I also studied using curriculum like Target Test Prep, but John helped me tremendously by working through the problems I struggled with step by step and identifying any weak spots in my quant skills. He understands the GMAT and is able to identify the kinds of questions that likely would or would not appear on the exam. Finally, John served as a strong source of moral support throughout a challenging three months of study atop a full time job. When I wanted to try a new curriculum or ask him about tricky questions via email, he would always offer thoughtful feedback in response. His responses were especially helpful when I scored low on practice exams; John's feedback always helped me put things in perspective and helped me get back up and try again. He was very flexible and willing to work with my schedule and make time when needed, often on short notice. In short, I couldn't have done it without him!
All of their staff is very responsive and amazing. I scheduled my sessions right away with great tutors who graduated from top universities. Also, it was so helpful to download their SAT UP app. After trying dozens of SAT prep apps, this one is my favorite so far. If you want to get higher points, this package is awesome and affordable for the value you get.
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.
My daughter did not do well with her previous Sat Math I am really glad to have found Sowmya to tutor her this time My daughter felt more confident and felt that she did better on her recent Sat Math, Thank you bunch for helping her Five Golden Stars
I had to find a tutor right away for SAT exam and Arbor Tutors was able to come through for me.
Josh was an awesome SAT tutor for my son, increasing his scores 110 points in just a few weeks of tutoring. Prior to Josh, my son was enrolled in a commercial SAT prep course: 3 hours on Friday evenings and six hours on Saturdays along with 11 other students. My son did not respond well to the group setting. These sessions could not hold his attention, and it became a weekly battle to get him to go. After a few weeks, he quit the course and decided that individual tutoring would be a better option. Joshs style of personalized attention offered my son the back and forth interaction he needed to maintain interest and motivation. He had a great depth of knowledge (Yale graduate), as well as a warm and personal demeanor. He took the time to understand my sons individual style of learning and identified the areas with which he needed more assistance. In summary, my son benefitted greatly from Joshs talents, and I would highly recommend him to anyone needing one-on-one and personalized attention.
My son needed SAT tutoring and Misha was not only able to keep his attention but managed to teach him the subject matter in such a way that both he and I are now very confident he'll breeze through the math section!

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.
Aanchal was a terrific SAT tutor. She helped me identify problem types I was struggling with, and worked with me to develop strategies to tackle these. She had me feeling comfortable for the SAT on the day, which was great! Aanchal also gave me advice throughout the daunting college admissions process, which was a huge help. Very grateful!
Drew is a phenomenal tutor! Not only is he a whiz, but he's passionate, energetic and very organized. It's rare to find someone who is a master at both English and Math. Highly recommend.
Mark tutored our daughter for SAT. He really broke down the topics and made them very easy to comprehend. It's thanks to him our daughter scored 2230 and that's 4 months after she scored 1900 the first time she took the test. Our daughter has ADHD and he made a great effort of making sure that our daughter was comfortable and wasn't getting too overwhelmed by the material. I highly recommend him
Worried about your upcoming SAT subject I or II math exam? Don't be. Unlike the verbal and writing sections, the math section features similar questions every year. By walking through practice problems together, I'll teach you how to answer the tough questions in less time. I'm an Ivy League educated Math tutor, who studied and tutored economics in college. We'll make studying fun and as a result, your score will improve. I recommend 45 to 90 minute session.
