Ms. Sandy has been doing an awesome job at tutoring my 6 year-old son. Before he met her, my son was struggling with reading a book.(because we only speaks Korean at home) Now his reading skills are much improved and he is able to read! His grade get higher since Ms. Sandy starts to teach him. She is warm, patient and very sweet. We really want to have her to teach him more. We also recommended her to my Korean colleague, who has a 5 year-old daughter. - NamSuk Oh & KyongHwa Jung (in Chicago)
I'm very impressed with the quality and the education of the tutors. It's like everyone here has an Ivy League education.
I was having a lot of problems with essay writing and math. The tutor that was given to me was able to help me with both subjects. I'm very relieved. I recommended Arbor to several of my family members who also had similar results.
I was taught by Jack in my college. He helped me a lot, not only in my study, but also gave me a lot of instructions and suggestions in my future options. When I applied for my master degree, he helped me search informations about different universities and majors and wrote me recommendation letter. Also he really made a lot contribution to my college, which is North American college Jiangnan University. He got up early every morning to help those who study English in the morning, help them speaking, reading and pronunciation. I really appreciate his help, with his help I successfully enrolled in Australia National University, majoring in master of actuarial studies.
I hired Lauren to help my 11 year old twins with math and English homework. She came to our home and worked with them both. Her first session was just yesterday. She impressed me in that she was incredibly patient and encouraging. She went above and beyond in that we had originally hired her for one hour but once she dug in with my son it became clear this was a longer project - she ended up staying at our house for 1 1/2 hours! After the first session, Lauren followed up with me. She provided a plan of action to get my children the help they need now and how to get them to where they can work more independently. It was wonderful. In my case, homework had become a tough, with my twins fighting over my time and questioning whether or not I really know how to do their math problems (I do, but not the way they are learning them!). Honestly, this is the best money I might ever spend. Now, homework is about a peaceful chance to work with a wonderful, qualified teacher rather than fight with mom about fractions!
Mr. Green has tutor both my boys with excellent results.
Tim did a fantastic job tutoring my son for the ACT. He totally understood where to concentrate their time. Highly recommend.
Lucille helped me with editing papers for my Master's degree. I was so pleased with the results, and hired her to help my daughter with her High School creative writing assignments! When I learned that she also did tutoring for reading, I asked her to help my elementary school Granddaughter, with reading comprehension. She has a special way of teaching which made the work fun while achieving success. Her writing abilities are evident in her published books for children and adults. I have read and enjoyed all of them. I highly recommend her services.
Bonnie Dane has been a stellar English tutor for our high school son. She has been working with him since he was a sophomore and throughout his junior year. She helped with ACT prep, vocabulary development, composition, style, grammar, pertinent English homework when necessary, essays etc. Bonnie always used a professional approach to accomplish these objectives, coupled with humor, sensitivity, individualized her approach to our son's learning style and helped increase his critical thinking ability. She is reliable and trustworthy. Bonnie has helped our son have As in English and Speech. We are most grateful that we found Bonnie. Our son has really come to appreciate his sessions with Ms Dane. We highly recommend Bonnie for other students and trust she will make a big difference in their learning experience.
We really enjoyed what B wise has done with our children. They were able to identify a plan for both of them and we saw a increase in grades on the next grade cycle. Looking forward to more sessions.
Well, MR "T" (as I called him) was a great tutor. I believe I was sixteen when my mom hired him to tutor me in reading and writing. He was very good, and, funny. I'm twenty now and a student at the U of C, and I still remember and use many of the things he taught me. Anyone would be lucky to have him as a tutor-especially in writing.
Amazing!!! Mrs. V made my daughter feel comfortable and smart in the short time they were together. She made great assessments with my daughter and was reviewing her current skills and helping her develop new ones through reading and play. i was throughly impressed and I'm very happy she will be working with us!
Over the years I've developed many tips and tricks to help children learn, whether it is for advanced levels, or those that need that extra help.
I have taught reading, writing, thinking, speaking, listening, critical thinking for the past fifteen years. I also have a daughter in school, so I can see both sides of the education system. Fun works. Rigor works. Students having a voice works. I can help people navigate grades, tests, and most of all learning! I have also begun writing digital curriculum, pushing my thinking about how to design and measure learning. I would love to write more curriculum that works as games do.

I teach outside the box, tapping into the specific learning style of the student. Books alone are boring, that's why I utilize fun and creative ideas to help the students understand concepts of subject matter. No one sleeps when I teach.
Students tell me I'm easy to talk to because I listen to them, then help them see how to improve their writing. As a published author, I've learned how the rewriting process can really improve any piece of writing.
I interview each student to get a sense of their learning style and cater to how they learn best.
I do tutoring. I help educate people in subjects they are struggling with. I have had experience with children and adults. I will adapt towards those I mentor in order to ease them through the subjects they find difficult.
I was a home-school mom for over 10 years. So, although I am not a certified teacher, I am a mother who taught and directed three children in how to learn and learn independently. Primary grades are my specialty, especially reading skills, foundational math principles, spelling, and English language basics. While I home educated, Ive managed an apartment building in Chicago, part-time. I have been managing this property for 24 years. It is a part-time position, and I am seeking additional work at this time. I really like kids (our house is too quiet), and I enjoy helping them get excited about reading and learning. Let me help your kids to lay the solid foundation they will need to love learning for the rest of their lives.
