I want you to know how much I value your support. I almost got a perfect score! I'm the LUCKY ONE when I hired Arbor Tutors. Your help and assistance has been immeasurable.
Nicole was outstanding! She helped our son raise his composite ACT score from a 20 to a 27 in only 7 weeks! As a senior, this was our son's last chance to raise his ACT score. Prior to the April test, we had enrolled him in 16 weeks of group classes; His math score only increased 1 point and reading increased 2. In less than half the time and for about half the money, Nicole helped AJ increase math by 7, reading and science by 8, and English by 5. She tailored the lessons to AJ's background and learning style. Her approachable manner and disarming personality immediately put AJ at ease -making it easier for him to learn. Nicole made herself available to answer questions at ALL times, day or night, which was unbelievably helpful! She is extraordinarily knowledgeable about both the ACT and new SAT. Regarding the entire college application process, she is a wealth of information and advice! We were so lucky that she was able to fit AJ into her packed schedule, and we will be forever grateful for everything she did for him and us!
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.
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.
