I needed help with my English class and my tutor helped me go from a C- to an A. Very good.
Wendie was an excellent tutor. Easy to schedule with and found a time and convenient location close to home. My son's score went up several points from the first time he took the ACT (before tutoring). His Reading score had a big increase send his math score went up dramatically too. My son mentioned that the tutoring also helped him in his math class at school. I would definitely hire Wendi again.
My daughter who is in high school started seeing Laura last year when she was struggling in her math class. She had seen two or three previous tutors who didn't work out because they made the material more confusing or they couldn't figure out the math themselves. My daughter was hesitant to go to another tutor. Laura has been wonderful! She knows math, loves it, and can teach and explain even complicated math concepts. She is flexible with setting times to meet and always is encouraging. I would highly recommend her!
Steve is a wonderful tutor. After only 6 lessons with Steve, our son was able to earn a composite score of 34 the first (and only) time he took the ACT, including 35's in Science and Math. Our son was so happy to have worked with Steve before sitting for the ACT,as he now has the ACT behind him and can focus on his classes and other school activities, rather than on testing and test prep. We very much appreciated how comfortable our son was working with Steve and how confident he felt going into the test.
I've only had one class so far, based on the class, she's an excellent teacher and I'm looking forward so doing more classes before my exams
Do not think twice in choosing Arbor Tutors. Their tutoring sessions are brilliant.
Excellent ACT/SAT tutor I was referred Dr. Reetika by another mom from my sons class. She truly helped shape his career. She helped my son to prepare both for ACT and SAT to identify which works better for him. In the end my son took both the exams and did well on them. There were times that I had difficulty keeping him accountable but Reetika had a good balance of being a tutor and sounding board for my advice. I recommend Reetika to anyone needing help in test prep or honors classes of their kid
My daughter became more confident in her math skills. She was able to raise her Math ACT score after tutoring.
Chhavi: has excellent teaching skills, developed rapport with students and very creative with teaching methods. Her classes does influence students thinking in a positive manner. I strongly recommend her.
She is an amazing tutor. She helped me two different classes .
We are still using Guy for a few more weeks but we couldn't be happier. His tutoring style is very patient and thorough with repetition. Especially with the Math subjects this is extremely important to students who struggle to be able to learn at a comfortable pace and not feel so overwhelmed. Since hiring Guy my daughter has been getting better grades on her homework and quizzes. We still have the final to go but I am confident that the results we were hoping for will be attained. She just needs to finish the class with a C or better in order for it to count as transfer credits and hopefully this will be the last math class she will ever have to take, if not we will be hiring Guy again.
Andy is not only the most proficient, knowledgeable, and engaging tutor but also is highly skilled at making the material, which at times can be extremely challenging, very relevant. To this day, I still remember all the mantras and useful shortcuts that helped enable me to graduate in the Top 10% of my class. I would highly recommend Andy to anyone looking improve his or her math, science, or even economic skills. Thank you for challenging my approach and enhancing my ability to tackle difficult concepts. As an added-bonus...Andy is also my personal trainer--when he isn't supporting me mentally, he is preparing me for Football & Boxing.
Mr. Patel was an excellent teacher! He was very clear and explained the topics I needed help in. I learned what I did in a semester in a few classes with him and I understood so much better. He's a really good teacher.
I came to Law Methods desparate for help after several months of poor admissions consulting and overpriced phone tutoring with supposed experts; consequently, I stumpled upon the reasonably priced Law Methods with skepticism. Thankfully, working with Law Methods has completely changed how I look at the law school admissions process, not to mention my goals in getting into a great law school instead of settling on wherever would take me. They've been awesome for LSAT tutoring, general admissions strategy, and drafting solid personal statements and optional esssays. I would know--I paid around $4000 for an atrocious personal statement, a resume that was too long and didn't showcase how well-rounded I was, and an LSAT score that was 7 points below my goal!!! Below are a few things I'd like to metion about my experience with Law Methods that made them stand out: 1. They will PUSH you to do your best, which is what a great company should do. A great deal of experts like it when you don't have too many drafts of personal statements, as it's less work for them. I had someone who was giving me one word answers for optional essays, like, "Great!" Even I knew they weren't great, and that scared me. 2. They care about where you want to go and are honest about how much work you will need to do to get in. Face it, many of these experts will get you into law school, but they don't say where. Law Methods prides itself on getting candidates into GOOD law schools! When I said I really wanted to go to a top school, they made me work like a top law school student has to. For the first time in the admission process, I actually felt like I was going to get into a good school and had a lot to offer a law school class. 3. They all went to the top schools where they try to place their clients. I felt a lot more comfortable working with someone who got into Northwestern than someone who went to a regional school in Florida or South Dakota and was telling me how to get into Northwestern. 4. They make themselves available in case of an emergency, and they will check up on you when they don't hear from you. When I stopped emailing my last consultant (who cost $3400), she never even bothered to call and ask me what happened. The people at Law Methods treat you like a client, not a paycheck, which is the best part of working with them:) 5. They make sure all their candiates come across as diverse and well-rounded. Before Law Methods, my application was pretty lackluster; I am now exceptionally proud of my accomplishments and am happy I got the opportunity to showcase them with an appropriate level of modesty. I HIGHLY recommend Law Methods for tutoring and admissions counsulting. I have personally worked with Brenden, Steve, Meghan and David, and all are execptional at what they do and genuinely great people. If you are serious about improving your LSAT score or having a winning application, then please talk to Law Methods before settling on a slick brochure or fancy "expert" website. They are never forceful and will not sell you what you don't need.
Julia tutored my son for about five years. We were very impressed by his improvement in math shortly after he became her student. Julia's tutoring not only helped him to excel in math inside the class, but it also helped him to excel in standardized tests such as SAT and ACT. I strongly recommend Julia not only for students who need help, but also for those who are doing good but still want to perform to the best to their potential.
Mr. K's math camp was a wonderful addition to the Price Hill and surrounding communities as well as Price Hill Recreation Center, where the program was conducted. He produced amazing results with some of our most challenging kids. Mr. K combined Montessori, holistic theory and common sense to help focus kids so they could learn and bring up test results. As both parents and kids enthusiastically embraced this program, it was always well attended. The only downside was, the program had to end due to a loss of funding. We certainly miss the Math Camp as it excellently served our littlest citizens in a comprehensive and very caring way.
Jasmine was extremely helpful - significantly better than any professional tutoring service I attended. Not only does she know the material but she can explain it in a way that makes sense and she gave me examples and outside work to further my understanding. I was getting a D in my class and with her help I passed with a 93% on my final exam. I would definitely recommend her as a tutor and I wish I would have found her sooner!
Sean taught a poetry class to a group of us non-academics. He was very creative and made it not only very informative but so enjoyable. He has renewed our interest in poetry and inspired us to make it a more integral part of our lives.
After, 18 years I decided to go back to school and complete my degree. I was lost and struggling with my classes. Then I was recommended to Jason, and with his one on one tutoring service I manage to get that GPA to a 4.0. I have even used his services for my son that is a senior I. High school. I recommend him for anyone who is struggling or perhaps needs a little extra help with school work.
We hired Ryan half way through a summer school honors math class and he jumped right in! He is very knowledgeable, approachable, flexible, and goes above and beyond (he followed up on a concept via email between sessions). He has a down-to-earth teaching style that provides the necessary tools for students to be successful. We highly recommend Ryan.
