I interviewed and asked around about several tutoring companies in the north Atlanta area and found The Learning Island to be not only reputable and challenging for my son, but also more affordable. I found Billy Satterwhite, the owner and founder, to be a hardworking businessman and educator of high integrity, and extremely flexible with occasional schedule changes which I aimed to keep to a minimum. I appreciated that he and my son developed a comfortable rapport. I'm happy to say that my son's scores increased as a result of his tutoring sessions, and he felt good about his relationships with the tutors. It is very conveniently located for the Sandy Springs, Chastain Park, Vinings, and north Buckhead communities. The whole experience was overall very, very positive and I highly recommend The Learning Island to anyone with teenagers looking to prepare for their standardized tests.
He was an excellent tutor, and my daughter was able to understand and accomplish her goals.
Mr. Marquette tutors my daughter in math. He is very professional. He makes learning math fun for her. I highly recommend their services. You will not be disappointed.
Ms. Arp tutors my 9-year-old fourth grader twice per week with a focus on reading and writing. Prior to beginning her sessions, Ms. Arp met with me to gauge my child's needs. She was very thorough in her assessment of my wants and obviously very knowledgeable about best practices in teaching and remediation. I felt very comfortable being honest about my child's weaknesses and my fears for his future. Ms. Arp put me at ease, though, when she explained to me her plan for bringing my child up to grade level in reading. Ms. Arp spent the first sessions diagnosing my child's reading abilities. From there, she paid close attention to what he was doing in his classroom lessons, and her tutoring reflected the same subject matter as his teacher's lessons. If his class was working on identifying the main idea, that's what my child would work on with Ms. Arp during tutoring. Whenever I had a new idea for an area of focus, Ms. Arp always listened and changed her lessons to address those concerns. I feel like Ms. Arp is part of the larger team of folks who care about my child's education. My child has gained confidence and tangible skills thanks to Ms. Arp. I am grateful that we found a tutor who offered a convenient schedule and a reasonable rate. Giving your child the best opportunities in life should not exist solely for the wealthy. Ms. Arp allows my family to afford the extra academic attention while still having enough left over to keep my child in other extra-curricular activities. We could not have asked for a better tutor. Thanks, Ms. Arp!
Samuel is a very patient and very knowledgeable math tutor. I will be using his services again! He's great.
My son needed a lot of help with both the SAT and the ACT. Arbor Tutors really came through. Perfect 36 on the math section of the ACT.
We found Robert in the middle of the school year in 2014. Our 8 year old son was having a very challenging time with math, and his father and I were not able to assist him without us all ending up beyond frustrated. Robert is soft spoken, kind, patient, encouraging an effective! Our sons grades have improved, and he comes home from school telling us that math is easier for him than it used to be! We would highly recommend Robert to any parent considering a math tutor for their student.
I tried to study and practice on my own for the GRE, but after I got my terrible scores back I knew I needed tutoring. My tutor was always punctual (often earlier than I was!) and thoughtfully prepared for our sessions based on my needs. I did poorly in the GRE quant section, so we worked on improving my confidence and speed (a lot of focus on strategy) doing GRE math problems. After re-taking the test, I scored 9 points higher! Obviously, I had to work hard to get these results, but a huge chunk of my success is because of my tutor.
Accounting is definitely not my forte so being able to have somebody to discuss the topics and send me in the right direction for my assignments has been a phenomenal experience. With at least 10 years of real experience, she is adequately equipped to deliver high quality tutoring in her respective subjects. Her professionalism and quality work made a favorable impression on me, and reflected on the grades I received for the assignments. I would not hesitate to hire her in the future, and I do plan on using her expert knowledge through the remainder of my accounting course. 10/10 Would hire again! I am so thrilled I chose the right tutor!
Gary is a fantastic tutor, but even more, he is a kind and patient mentor. When our son started working with Gary, we immediately saw the light come on. He started to understand pre-calculus and his confidence increased ten fold. Gary made him realize that he could not only do the math, but he could master it. Gary is outstanding at explaining and demonstrating so that our son was able to understand and carry what he had learned back to the classroom. He is a rare find and a blessing to our family.
Melissa is an amazing Tutor for our 9 year old. She has been with us for years and we have recently had the best report card EVER! She is always in communication about progress and is willing to work with scheduling when things come up. She is like one of the family! A+++
My daughter always seemed to have panic attacks leading up to tests. I was desperate to find a way for her to be comfortable especially as SATs were coming up. All I can say is after a few weeks with the tutors and life coaches at Chelsea International Education, my daughter’s confidence level went up a lot. She was not only prepared to take her SATs but her core academic skills have improved tremendously, which has helped her with her AP exams. The fact that all of the Chelsea tutors are fully qualified teachers, I think makes a major difference and really sets them apart. It really is a quality service and I am very happy to recommend them to anyone.
Thanks for tutoring my two children. The enrichment in writing and grammar that you have provided is greatly appreciated. They have increase their confidence in their skills for every day writing as well as test taking.
Dr. Mano is a wonderful instructor. He is efficient, patient, and gives students an easier way of understanding the material. One session in with him so far and I plan to have many more. He is very passionate about his teaching and for the students success.
We have know Lynn Marshall for 6 years. She has tutored both our sons. It doesn't matter what subject they are learning, Lynn is always on top of it. She has a real passion for learning and teaching that is simply unparalleled. Lynn has a remarkable ability to make anyone understand any subject. She is patient, and attentive, discerning readiness and helping students overcome fears and previous defeating experiences. We recommend Lynn for any student at any age.
Good results for a reasonable price
