We've had a great experience with the tutor we found. My daughter is understanding math now, gets a review of homework and general concepts, and is better prepared for tests. Very happy we found an affordable tutoring option.
Arbor Tutors helped both my son and my daughter with test prep as well as AP exams. Phenomenal.
Nicole is great! She only had 6 lessons to work with my daughter before her Act test and of course with the hard work of the student to study what they have learned from the teacher you'll get results like my daughter did. Her score went up 3 points within that short amount of time that we can schedule Nicole in. I really recommend Nicole😊. Thanks again Nicole for everything! Jackie C.
Don has tutored two of my children weekly for over a year. He has helped them tremendously in math by clarifying concepts, helping them to work through problems on their homework, adequately preparing them for tests, and building their confidence. He cares about them as people and goes above and beyond the expectations of a tutor. He is always on time and communicates effectively. We plan to continue our work with Mr. Diehl so that our children remain successful in school.
Excellent tutor for daughter's SAT math prep. Signing on for more sessions.
I needed help the night before a statistics test, and on short notice, Tyler spent two hours helping me at 10 pm. I passed and I couldn't have done it without him.
Donna is great, very knowledgeable and easy to work with. She is excellent at working with adult students: I needed help preparing for a college placement test after taking time off from school and she was very easy to talk to and good at explaining things simply but without talking down or telling me things I already knew. Great experience, would recommend Donna to anyone!
Gary has been a tutoring resource for two of our high schoolers for about a year. They like his calm and kind manner and request sessions with him regularly. He has been able to help with a variety of math levels on a flexible schedule - even last-minute test prep!
I'm not one to post reviews but I thought I'd give one for Denise. While we are still waiting for the test results as the true measure of success Denise did a great job of keeping us, the parents, well informed and my daughter had a great experience and learned a lot. I am looking forward to working with her more.
Katrina is wonderful! She really takes the time to understand each kid and how they work so she can motivate and teach them to their individual needs. (We have 2 kiddo working with her.) My kids love her and look forward to seeing her for tutoring. Who knew my kids would get excited about Math. Lastly we saw results pretty quickly their Homework and Test scores have stared to come up! She’s given my kids the confidence they so desperately needed. Thank you!!
We are pleased to provide a reference for Colleen Urban. Colleen tutored our daughter, Julia, at Basic Skills Tutoring in Seattle while Julia was in middle school and high school at The Northwest School (2006-2011). Colleen began as a math tutor but her role expanded, to providing help in organization, study skills, time management, and test preparation. Julia benefitted enormously from the assistance and counsel that Colleen provided. She helped Julia tackle algebra, geometry and calculus, as well as preparing for physics, chemistry, and biology exams. Colleen was always patient but firm with Julia. Their relationship was close and friendly. Julia never complained about going to tutoring and looked forward to her time with Colleen. As well as attending a challenging college prep school, Julia was a serious ballet dancer. Her after-school hours were often taken up with classes and rehearsals. Colleen was very flexible—always finding some time for Julia, even if it meant staying late—when she needed it. Colleen made a lasting impact on Julia’s life and academic career. Julia graduated from Bennington College, with a 3.8 GPA in 2015. She was extraordinarily successful in college and has made a great transition to life after college. Last year, she taught in a French high school. This year she is writing poetry as well as working full-time as she prepares to apply to graduate school. She tackles difficult projects with discipline and enthusiasm. She has the confidence to work independently and the patience to deal with the inevitable frustration that results from challenging herself. These were qualities that Colleen saw in Julia and worked hard to bring to the forefront. For this assistance and support, we continue to be very grateful to Colleen.
My daughter was wrongly placed in a Spanish class that was beyond her skill level and subsequently kept getting very low test scores. She was struggling and very frustrated, through no fault of her own. We needed someone to bring her up to speed in a very short amount of time. Melissa was the perfect tutor to do that. She understood the situation and knew what to do right away with my daughter. My daughter felt very comfortable with Melissa and liked her teaching style. She was very patient, but emphasized the important things my daughter needed to work on. By the time the semester ended, my daughter raised her Spanish grade and made honor roll. Melissa continues to tutor my daughter and help her improve her Spanish skills even more.
My son has some challenges with mathematics, and especially with test anxiety. Sandy is a calm and reinforcing mentor and tutor, and she quickly created a trusting relationship with my son so that he could feel safe making mistakes. She creates an atmosphere where my son can come up to speed in the subjects that challenge him personally, and she is thoughtful in setting goals and a path for success. She is an excellent tutor.
Alex tutored our daughter for the ACT test in 2016-17. She liked him very much and did extremely well on her ACT. Alex was always dependable about his schedule and he arrived on time every time. His techniques for helping her prepare and review were extremely effective and he showed quiet, determined patience with her as she improved her practice scores. He also gave our daughter the confidence to expect high scores for herself and she lived up to it. He is smart, knowledgeable about the college admissions process, and most importantly, caring. We would recommend him very strongly to any incoming Junior or Senior looking to maximize their performance on their college entrance exams! He is a one-of-a-kind tutor.
Incredible support for both our children and us! Learned how to navigate student plans and how best to support our son and daughter's growth. Tremendous growth in our children's standardized testing and school exam results. Wonderful environment, created out of genuine investment for our children to ensure their future success. Have been with LF for 5 years and highly recommend them, their partnership is invaluable! Experts at what they do both academically and emotionally for supporting self-advocacy and scholastic achievement! Best investment we have ever made.
Noel, communicated very well with my wife and I but more importantly with our student Alex. He spent time going through the curriculum necessary for my son to succeed and also assisted with successful habits in test taking and managing teachers. I would highly recommend Noel!
An Authentic Teacher who is completely dedicated to aiding in the success of his students! I am continuously impressed by the interest this tutor shows in the subject of ANYTHING math related! Damian Kelly goes above beyond, providing knowledge and skill sets along with a cheerleader mentality which really helps in the process of tackling a new challenge! I am 100% pleased and excited to have found such a great tutor! I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in basic to extreme math skills! He has also contributed to improving my study skills and test taking skills, which is irreplaceable! Damian is enthusiastic and excited to teach, always appreciating and supporting the thorough victories of his students!
Londa is an experienced and patient driving instructor, she helped me a lot to prepare for a driving test and encouraged me as well! I highly recommend that Tutor :)
Kate has been working with my sons, now a junior and sophomore, since middle school in supplementing their math studies. When we first engaged Kate for tutoring they were both struggling in their math courses and especially exam preparation. Kate worked extremely well with the boys and they enjoyed the sessions. As a result, there was an improvement of *three* letter grades! In addition to being very knowledgeable in the material, Kate was very personable which helped my sons really (and quickly) make immediate gains in the subject matter. Kate also helped my youngest son with college placement testing preparation. As a direct result of her help, he was able to enter college at the age of 15 without the need for remedial or introductory coursework. Kate has been reliable, punctual, and generally awesome across the board, We highly (highly) recommend her.
Mr. Morse is an excellent tutor. I have an eleventh grader that struggles with reading comprehension and writing. Mr. Morse started tutoring for us with very short notice and even read the book my nephew is reading in class, almost completely, by the first session (with only hours to prep). He has definitely helped my nephew understand what he is reading by relating it to what he knows and loves, (football, current events, etc) and inspires him to write better. Apprehensive at first, my nephew now looks forward to meeting with Mr. Morse and has a new found respect for language arts. We are fortunate he came along and glad we made the call. Thank you Mr. Morse, it is always a pleasure.
