I have been lucky enough to have Mr. Goodman's help throughout the majority of my academic life. While participating in homeschooling through the end of elementary school and beginning of middle school, he was my instructor in mathematics each year. Additionally, Mr. Goodman was extremely helpful as a supplemental tutor when I needed help with my public high school math courses. I have received tremendous aid most recently in my college courses (both with my college course material, and in helping me to stay fresh with basic skills). Overall, I would highly recommend Mr. Goodman's tutoring services for any stage of learning. He has been extremely helpful and dedicated, both locally and long distance.
We were tutoring with Jocelyn and will continue to use her as long as she is available. Our family has used her services now for the past three years and each year she continues to grow in her knowledge. She has helped our special needs student tremendously. Our son needs the extra one one one attention due to having dyslexia and a processing disorder. Each of her sessions are tailored to him personally. She takes the time after the sessions to tell us the methods she is using, why they are helpful, and what she will do next time. In addition, Jocelyn is supportive, punctual, and flexible (in reason). We will continue to work with her as long as possible! Thank you for all of your hard work.
This was my first time using a tutorial service. I must say, I could not be more pleased with the results. I wanted to get my son (a senior in high school) additional help as he prepared to take the ACT. His tutors were Mr. Darryl Marquette and Ms. Johnnie (JR) Redding. Both were amazing! They interacted well with my son and were able to present the information to him in a manner that was clear and concise. The techniques shared were invaluable. Thanks to both Mr. Marquette and Ms. Redding, my son's ACT score improved 9 points. We all were pleasantly surprised. I would definitely use them again. If you are in the market for a tutor, I highly recommend them.
I must say I am extremely happy with the quality of service from the first phone call through the tutoring sessions. I have tried other tutoring companies before coming to Arbor but this is where I belong. I wish we would've started with them in the beginning. The quality of the tutoring was top notch.
We really enjoyed Mr. Gathany. He was pleasant and very professional. My daughter is taking the ACT Exam today (02/06/16) and we are confident with Mr. Gathany's tutoring, my daughter will succeed. We made the right choice.
Improved SAT score 140 points after two months of tutoring, definitely recommend!
I’ve taken my SATs a couple of times and although I am not a bad student, I just felt that I could have done better, I knew it inside, but just could not find where it was. I got the Getting Into The Ivys tutoring program and worked with a Chelsea tutor. What I really like about my tutor is that she’s a qualified teacher and is professional and knows how to actually teach concepts properly. I really did not want to take any chances. Going to university is very important to me and my family. Susan my tutor developed a special study plan just for me, which helped me focus on my key weaknesses, without feeling de-motivated, in-fact I was so enthused by her, I actually looked forward to all my sessions. She is a brilliant tutor and I am so very grateful. I was able to increase my composite core by 100. I am very pleased.
My daughter is no longer concerned about how she should prepare for the ACT . Kami provides expertise and strategies for success to every session, which has already given my daughter confidence and creates a proactive approach to tackling this daunting exam.
Gregory tutored my son in Geometry. Gregory is a knowledgeable and patient tutor who helped my son's grade improve. Gregory was extremely easy to work with and in scheduling tutoring sessions
Used ATL Math Coach (Peter Clark) to help my 2013 HS Grad get his diploma and my 2016 HS do well on her ACT which got her in college. Got the T-shirt from ATL Math Coach (literally).
My daughter and I were very comfortable with his tutoring practices. He pre assessed her and showed her various strategies on which to rely. I was only going to have him tutor her for one hour per week but after having met him, I increased it to two hours. My daughter really likes the way he explains math to her. I'm very impressed!
Eizabeth has been great with my son. He has a very hard time concentrating for any length of time, but Elizabeth gets his attention and keeps it. We are very pleased with these tutoring sessions.
She was great, nice, polite and professional.
Good results for a reasonable price
I know how to improve SAT scores! No, I did not score an 800 on Math. I missed one item and got a 770. So, there are people smarter than me, but I do know how to raise scores, and I do know how people make mistakes. My Asian mother, who is a professor in statistics, made me endure a SAT boot camp for one week. I raised my score on the math section from a 670 to a 770. She taught me all sorts of tips and tricks on how to take the SAT. Now, it is my turn to pass on what I learned to you! If you want to raise your score or learn how to strategically take the SAT, I can help. Try me out! If you like it, I can officially be your boot camp trainer.

Over the past few years, I've worked with different tutoring businesses, where I've done both tutoring and coordinating. I've got many positive feedback. Being very experienced, I think I can teach anyone.
I have a Bachelor of Arts' degree in English. I believe that teaching is more than imparting knowledge – it is inspiring change. Good teaching fosters sense of student control over learning and interest in the subject matter. I create learning tasks appropriate to the student’s level of understanding. I also recognize the right the uniqueness of individual learners and avoid the temptation to impose “mass production” standards that treat all learners as if they were exactly the same. In order for learning to occur, students need to connect to their own prior knowledge. Connections are like building bridges between the old and new. This building bridge can be brief or in-depth as long as it serves the needs of all learners. Reassessment determines prior knowledge whereas connections provides the link between old knowledge and new knowledge. I have been teaching AP Spanish and English for 20 years including two years at the middle school level. Each student learns differently and I always adjust my methods in order to get the best results from each learner. 98% of my students raised their English / Spanish AP grade from D to A; you/your child can, too. The role of a tutor is to help the student help himself. Tutoring is the short term answer to help the student gain confidence and learning skills. In other words, my objective is more than rote learning; it is about making connections to the real world. I include appropriate character development with real world connections with every lesson. Overall, I am trained to differentiate any lesson through scaffolding techniques, as well as rigorous assessment, making sure to present appropriate and leveled instruction. I look forward to meeting your student to see if we have an academic fit.
