Julissa tutored my son in Math for part of his junior year of high school. There was a definite improvement in his grades. But Julissa did more than tutor him, she gave him study methods and relaxation methods for his test anxiety. She also discussed with him his plans for the future and gave advice on what he needed to do to achieve his goals. The location at the library in Parkville was perfect as a safe public place, but still afforded quiet working accommodations. I highly recommend Julissa as a tutor!
My 4th grade daughter is struggling with reading comprehension/writing and has been working with Jill for a few months. Her essay responses have improved dramatically during her latest reporting period. My daughter has ADHD - Jill accomodates her with a lot of patience, breaks and little activities for the two hour session. We are very please to provide an excellent rating for Jill and highly recommend.

Janet was the first to respond at my request for a professionally written resume and cover letter. I never thought there was another who could paint a portrait of the past 7 years of my working career under 48 hours. Not even knowing me or who I am, she has a writing ability to describe my work history and ethic better than anyone I know personally. She is truely gifted in her writing skillset and does a fantastic job. 5 of 5 stars, 2 thumbs up, and I'd tip my hat to her. I feel very confident that her work will be extremely critical in my career switch. Thank you, Janet and keep up yhe great work! Andrew Staskowski
I am amazed as to the quality of tutoring I received from Arbor Tutors given the low price. I was a bit skeptical at first because you never know. It was money very well spent.
Vincent is very patient, flexible, and has a way of explaining the subject matter that is easy to apply. We saw immediate scholastic improvements after the first tutoring session!! We highly recommend him!
It is my great pleasure to personally recommend Sharon Lopatin for a teaching or tutoring position.. Sharon was vital in helping me understand and complete assignments in English, reading, writing,social studies and biology. She was also able to help me learn many new things, even when I didn’t understand it the first time. I can assure you that Sharon Lopatin is an outstanding teacher who will quickly become an integral member of your school’s community. Since our first meeting Sharon has been a great teacher because she is able to work patiently with me as I was learning a new language and could explain ideas in different ways. This level of attention and care make Sharon a wonderful teacher and educator for any student or classroom.
Neil Grobman is a great tutor. Neil tutored me in the reading and writing portions of the SAT. We had lessons each week. He introducesd and elaborated on a different topic at each lesson. At the end, Neil assigns word parts and an essay for homework which helped to furthur expand the concepts. Neil made sure that he answers all of my questions and concerns. If he did not know the answer, Neil finds any sources that provides the answer. Neil provides an unique way to boost vocabulary, attack the essay, and complete the passage based questions. I have learned a lot from Neil and I recommend him to anyone in need of a responsible and dedicated tutor.

Moreover she shown a lot of flexibility to adapt to him and his scheduled when needed and always got the work done. Leslie has been above and beyond expectations!
