Mrs. Sizemore is an excellent math teacher! I had the opportunity to speak with her over the phone and just in our conversation she was able to help me to help my daughter. I’m super excited and encouraged to see how these tips will help me to enhance my daughter growth in Math.
He is very patient and knowledgeable. He engaged my daughter and allow her to think deep in order to come up with the answer. Great math tutor.
I am extremely pleased wth my sons results. After his sessions with Dr. Dubler, he is a much more confident young man! He had taken the test twice and did not perform well at all. We just received his results and were amazed at his success. My son increased reading by over 160 points and math by 100 points. We are thrilled. I can't say enough about the services received and the life long effects it will have on my son . Thanks for everything!
Melinda has been my writing tutor for two years now after jumping around from tutor to tutor my entire eight years in college. Melinda has made me a better writer in all aspects. I am a history major, and am constantly writing research papers. Knowing I have Melinda to guide me and help edit, drastically decreases my anxiety when writing. She is exceptional at making herself available when the going gets extra tough. Overall Melinda is the best writing tutor I've ever had.
If you are shopping around, just stop and call these guys right now. I've been very bad at math my entire life. I flunked algebra three times before I called Arbor Tutors. The tutor was very understanding and nonjudgmental. You cannot go wrong with this company.
He is very well educated and knows about everything:) Especially about literature and writing, I am very delighted, that brings extra value to the lessons for me!
We are so happy and satisfied with George's services. Our son was struggling with pre- algebra and after only a few sessions we saw a significant improvement in not only his grade but his overall confidence. In fact, the test he was preparing for he aced. George is very knowledgeable, patient, and thorough, and we highly recommend him for all your math tutoring needs.
Madeline was my son's summer reading tutor. She was approachable and easily won the respect of my son. Her approach was effective, and her thought process on his progress and how she was facilitating his learning was intelligent and thoughtful. I highly recommend Madeline.
This company has great tutors!
I am a graduate of the United States Air Force Academy and was valedictorian of my high school class. I know school. I also have the patience to teach those who are struggling with school work and are willing to improve. Every student has the ability to succeed. It is just a matter of desire and motivation. Unfortunately, we all are not motivated the same way, but I believe individual attention and the absence of distraction are key to helping those who may not be achieving their full potential. This is my first foray into this type of profession, but I can tell you that when I was in school. I was already doing this for my fellow students who may have not understood what they had been taught as well as me. I look forward to talking with you, and I certainly encourage parent/guardian participation in their child's education.
I am Marcia H. Birch, a counselor, tutor, and consultant. My experience in working with children started 30 years ago, when I was interning as an English teacher as part of my practicum. I noticed that a woman came into the classroom at different times and asked me if certain students could come to her room. Of course, I said sure. I later found out that she was an elementary school teacher, and she wore many hats. She could work with students one on one in any subject area. Her freedom was boundless. She also worked with students with emotional issues that teachers couldn't handle in the classroom. That was enough for me to hear. I graduated from University of Florida, moved back to New York, and found the program that fitted my needs. I attended Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York. It was a 49 hour program, different from most other programs that were 30 credit hours. When I graduated, I moved to Maryland and my first job was at Frederick High School. It was quite challenging-but not in the way I wanted it to be. After three years, I was asked as a promotion to work at a school, called, The Frederick County Learning Center. I would be the assistant principal as well as the counselor. This school consisted of 25 students who had been expelled from public school because of their outrageous behavior. The behaviors consisted of harming a teacher, harming students-the list goes on. They were considered "unteachable". I took this job for two reasons. I would be able to use my counseling skills to understand why these children had taken violent actions-which succeeded in what they wanted-to be thrown out of school. I wanted to see where they were academically. I surmised that many were non readers. Another reason, was the principal, Estes Lockhart, told me he would supervise me for 2,000 hours and go over how I handled three students in all areas of learning. If I achieved his expectations, I would be able to sit for the exam to become a Certified Mental Health Clinician. Of course, I was interested! The job would answer many of my questions. Why were so many students labeled with ADD/ADHD? I knew this was a true disorder but many behaviors look like ADD/ADHD that are emotionally based, and learning based. This two year experience changed my life. These students were not harmful-they came from a long line of dysfunction, alcoholism, drug abuse and sexual abuse. They were angry and had immense trust and abandonment issues. I stayed there for two years. 80% of the students went back to a regular school, four graduated from high school. I need to say how I transitioned into Montgomery County Schools. There is so much to say. I worked for 25 years in 5 different schools. My perspective on being a counselor was quite different then other counselors. I taught in every classroom, grades K-5 once a week. I would always choose a lesson pertinent to responsibility caring, respect, being a good citizen-etc. I would always make sure there was a writing component to my lesson. This way I could distinguish which children needed assistance in any form of writing, spelling, sentence structure, vocabulary, reading comprehension, or phonics. After reading every paper, there were at least 5-6 students who were severely deficient in at least two of these areas. If there were 7 children in a grade level who needed different ways to learn I would meet with them in a group-during lunch or recess. This provided the students with examples of other students who had the same learning difficulty. After about 4 weeks, I would give them a topic to write on or read them a narrative from a book. They had 10 minutes to write. They would share it with the rest of the group. The group would then critique the work. Every student had a dictionary and a thesaurus. It was amazing how in six months these students transformed in front of me. They were better behaved, their self esteem and respect they had toward themselves as well as adults were markedly noticed. I really became a counselor to teach students individually That is why I opened my own private practice in my home in 1985 for students who needed a private tutor. I also worked with adults and children who had emotional concerns. Marcia Birch
I provide academic tutoring in a safe and nurturing environment for grades K-6. I teach private voice and beginning piano for all ages.

My work stands out because I am a truly compassionate person with a love for helping children! I am only 17 but I am very responsible and I believe that starting my experience with helping children at my young age will not only benefit my future goals, but also help me relate better with the children I am helping to do better in life. I believe that all struggles placed on our children are truly gifts for them to view the world with a unique perspective, and for the care takers of these children to focus on sensitive characteristics within themselves. We can all greatly benefit from each other!
