Abraham is one of the founders of Spanish55, a wonderful Spanish tutoring service! I've been looking for a Spanish tutor for a while before Spanish55 found me. It's convenient, efficient, and the coaches are excellent. I stayed with it for so long because the staff and coaching had been catered to my needs. I would not have been able to find other Spanish tutors so easily! If Spanish55 never approached me, I probably would never have gone looking for lessons anywhere else. In regards to staff, Abraham has always been receptive, communicative, and extremely accommodating!
Juliet is fabulous! She tutors both my children, son (15) and daughter (13). One for SAT prep and the other for basic writing skills. The child that requires the "basics" has been identified with an Individual Education Plan (IEP). The children have completely different personalities and learning styles yet she is able to adapt and personalize the curriculum for their needs. She is very personable, dependable and extremely professional. My children absolutely love her. My daughter says, "she should get a million stars - she is exquisite". I highly recommend her services.
Michael helped me to raise my GRE scores close to 200 points in less than 1 month. A very patient person with a great memory for what needed to be worked on each time we met, we were productive from the minute I walked in to the moment I left. I had not studied math since HS (I studied logic through college) and he really helped me, as a novice math student, with all concepts of mathematics. As a teacher myself, Michael is a highly recommended tutor.
Joyee is a fantastic tutor who is laser-focused on coaching and guiding young students the right way to maximize test scores. He helped my son achieve a near perfect SAT score on his very first try and was especially helpful in the EBRW section. His coaching techniques are excellent and helped my son focus on the key areas that he needed to. I'd highly recommend Thinque Prep to anyone and would reach out to Joyee again if my son needed help in any of his subjects. It also helps immensely that Joyee in well-versed in coaching most subjects. Thanks, Joyee for all the help!
I am not one to leave a ton of reviews for services and I have had mixed success with Thumbtack, but I think this man is an unsung hero!!! My daughter has struggled in math for years, since grammar school, and is now in 8th grade. She continued to struggle with a different tutor. We have been working once a week with Mr. Matlak now for about six weeks and the difference is simply amazing. She just got her first "A" in a math quiz since grammar school and we both nearly cried in relief and joy. The two most important things about him - he KNOWS the concepts cold (some tutors DON'T), and he is PATIENT. I came to the conclusion that my daughter simply would not get the pace of learning or individualized attention in the public school setting that she needs for this particular topic. She is doing well in other topics but math is her Achilles heel. I didn't have the patience (or the knowledge) to help much and it became a source of frustration for both of us. It is such a RELIEF to see her more confident and not stressed about math now!! I can't say enough good things about Mr. Matlak. He promptly answered my inquiries, quickly provided two references who gave glowing reviews, and we are so happy to have him. We didn't want to go the Sylvan or other company routes - Mr. Matlak comes to your home, sits down with your student, and gets to work. I can't believe I did not invest in my child's future earlier in her school career - it is well worth it. We do an hour a week and it has made a VAST difference. I have no relation to Mr. Matlak (other than to sing his praises) and I would be happy to provide anyone interested with additional comments. Update April 22, 2015: Our daughter continues to work with Ray weekly and is now pulling a "B" average, coming up from the "D" average she was pulling when we started. Not struggling and spending so much time on math has allowed her to focus on her other classes and encouraged her to bring her other grades up as well as she prepares to enter high school. We couldn't be more pleased to see our daughter's confidence growing with respect to math. We'll keep him through COLLEGE if he's willing!! All kidding aside, Ray is well worth the investment, even if your budget calls for less frequent tutoring sessions.
All I can say is thank you! Before Elite Home Tutoring, I had a difficult time writing essays and developing a strong thesis. Now I feel very confident with my writing thanks to you guys. You really helped me reach my potential with respect to my writing skills and helped me strengthen my grammar. The tutors are extremely friendly and very hands-on. I definitely plan on using them again! I also value the fact that they are extremely patient, attentive, and overall very experienced in what they do
Lynne is just the kind of tutor I was looking for. Because she speaks her well-educated Spanish at a pace I can understand, I am able to converse with her in Spanish in a way that enables her to pick up on my errors. She made note of these, corrected them, and sent me a follow-up list of them via e-mail which is a great way of reinforcing the learning experience. It is primarily conversational Spanish that I want to improve upon. I have tried various ways of improving my Spanish over many years, and working with Lynne was the most successful and satisfying for me. Lynne was very accommodating about meeting at a place and time that was very convenient for me.
Jenny was a fantastic ACT tutor for my son! I could not have picked a better tutor. Jenny worked with him this summer and was able to quickly ascertain his areas of strength and areas for needed development for the ACT. She also quickly assessed his learning style and put together an efficient customized learning/tutoring plan and tutoring schedule for the summer that helped him make huge strides in both his strongest and weakest sections of the ACT, improving his already high comprehensive test results by 5 points thus far with another week of tutoring yet to go! In particular she did an amazing job tutoring him on the English portion, helping him go from a 26 to a 35 in that section! He has really enjoyed working with her and looked forward to their tutoring sessions. I will be signing my younger son up for ACT tutoring with Jenny next summer for sure!
Easy to follow, very precise & patient tutors. Excellent service all the way around!!!
Nancy's is the best tutor I've ever had I have 3 boys and 1 girls and I have had over 15 different tutors over the years and by far she is the best I have had she is everything I am as far being stern but she brings the softness that the student needs to get the best out of them my daughter did not bond with the three tutors before Nancy but she really loves Mrs Nancy as she calls her and she look forward to her session every week. I hired her to teach my daughter Spanish who has never taken before and she already can write and speak Spanish in less than two months she was so good I ask if she does any other subjects and of course she does it all so now she tutors my daughter in math and her grade went from a C to an A she makes sure the student understands the topic before she moves on and she won't budge or go any further unless the student totally understands it. If your looking for top shelf tutor look no futher and for the price it's a win win for me and my daughter thanks for making my daughter experience a total success.
Excellent job as a tutor/teacher. Focused on conversation with correct grammar. Would definitely hire for my son again.
My daughter has been working with Peggy on her French for about a month and she has already brought home two As and a B+. We are so grateful to have Peggy as my daughter’s French tutor.
I love the fact you can split the hours between different tutors.
Arbor Tutors is the best tutoring company anywhere. We tried several other tutors before Arbor and found exactly what we are looking for here.
Our daughter has dyscalculia, and I was at my wits end in finding someone who would be able to tutor her, think outside of the box, and help make a difference in her learning levels. I had no idea that I would strike gold in finding Konie Byrnes who not only worked her magic with our daughter, but who understood her as an individual, took time to work out what learning method worked best for her. Konie, has created a atmosphere of care, kindness, compassion and an understanding of the wonderful little human being our daughter is. Konie cares deeply about her students and that is something that we just don't see any more. Konie comes highly recommended.
She is great! I was in need of a SAT english tutor in order to compete for a spot at the United States Military Academy at West Point. She showed up on time and if needed would stay extra to make sure I actually improved. I was extremely confident heading into my test and was accepted into West Point. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of any help with english. In addition, she helped me with writing a letter to West Point on why I want to attend. She is great!!!
Mary Ellen is one of the best English and writing tutors out there. She has been working with both of my sons, now ages 14 and 17, for several years, helping them develop their writing and literary analysis skills. My older son had problems organizing his thoughts and expressing his ideas clearly and succinctly, and Mary Ellen was instrumental in helping him develop these writing skills. She is adept at literary analysis, an area my younger son needed support in, and provided the extra help he needed to fully comprehend the difficult novels his class was reading. As importantly, Mary Ellen has an amazing ability to relate to her students and both my boys looked forward to working with her.
She is wonderful tutor and very professional.
Joseph Descans helped me with the editing of several documents. His knowledge and editing skills were outstanding, and his patience with the process was the best part. It can be tremendously frustrating when you have "writer's block" and the words just don't come out right, but a patient tutor is such a great asset to have in your back pocket!
Kim was great . She explained everything to me and gave simple directions that I can understand and she was very patient when it came to her payment . I had a hard time trying to do the pay pal or anything that involves the computer or my phone even . She was great to work with . ! She also sent me 2 resumes that I can choose from and they turned out great ! And it was done in the time frame that I needed .
I am very happy with the service of our math tutor. She is very knowledgable and helpful in the area of calculus. We are happy we found her!
