Arbor Tutors could accommodate the tutoring needs we had plus tutoring for the SAT/ACT. Also, their online model provides flexibility for my daughters complicated schedule.
Anderson tutoring (Bertina Specifically) helped my son work on more advanced math so he could get into higher math in Jr. High.
Laura has been my tutor for Precalculus for almost a year now and I must say every penny paid is worth it. She has helped me score the highest I ever have in math and she continues to help me clear my confusion. She uses clear and useful techniques to teach me how simplify any problem I may be having. She is very adaptable to what kind of learner I am as well. I have not had even one time where I have left tutoring feeling unsatisfied or with a headache from learning. Apart from being a phenomenal tutor, Laura is a very kind and intellectual person as well. She makes time to know you as an individual and is always ready to help. I could not be happier with my decision to go to her for math help.
I met with Steve for 5 sessions to help me get my GRE math score on track. I had taken a Kaplan course before I took the GRE for the first time, but I scored abysmally in Quantitative Reasoning-- so low that I doubt my Kaplan work had any effect upon my score. Private tutoring was my last ditch effort to improve. Steve directed me to official GRE study materials (which were much more true to test than Kaplan's) and helped me recognize question patterns and develop a testing methodology. After ten hours working together I scored a whole 14 points higher in Quantitative Reasoning, which translated to a raise of 25 percentile points! What especially impressed me about Steve's work as a tutor was his flexibility and availability. I had only three weeks between our first tutoring session and my second attempt at the GRE, and Steve accommodated my schedule beautifully: he even was willing to meet near my house. He also kept me engaged and accountable through text and email, always underlining that I could call or email him for math help in a pinch. Thanks to Steve's direction and study aids, I have more than surpassed the Quantitative score goals I had when I signed up for tutoring. Steve definitely gives you a plan (and it doesn't hurt that he's a nice guy!). I would definitely recommend him to any test taker looking to improve.
Renji is AMAZING! I could not have been blessed with a better tutor, I guarantee that he will help you raise your ACT score or help you in whatever way needed for tutoring. He uses Apple technology during the lesson and does a great job explaining in detail how to get an answer. If you have Renji as your tutor, you have the best tutor!!
We did both online and in-home tutoring and liked both.
Hntsa is a great and extremely knowledable tutor. What we liked about him the most is his dedication and understanding of the student's strengths and weaknesses. He takes his time explaining the concepts to the students and also makes them comfortable at whatever level they are. Before my son started his tutoring sessions, Hntsa took his time to talk to him over the phone to discuss his study habits , his goals and expectations. He helped my son over the period of a few weeks to raise his ACT score. We don't know what his new score is going to be since he is just taking the test this week. However, I am very confident about whatever he learned will stay with him forever.
I was so impressed with Kevin and couldn't be happier that he reached out on thumb tack. I was in search of a tutor to help me pass the Elementary Education Math Content Test (very similar to the ACT math). Not only was Kevin able to teach in student friendly terms, he was SO knowledgeable of the types of questions and concepts I would need to know. Kevin was always very punctual and approachable when ever I did not understand something. We were able to meet before tutoring began to create a plan that we would follow together. By the last session, we covered every topic in the amount of time I hoped for. If you're in need of any math tutoring, I would HIGHLY recommend Kevin. Hands down the absolute best tutor I have ever been in contact with!!
Tim did a fantastic job tutoring my son for the ACT. He totally understood where to concentrate their time. Highly recommend.
Club Z! helped both my kids succeed. Their tutors are qualified and very knowledgeable in the subject and they make learning fun. I would recommend them to anyone that is looking for tutoring.
My son has been tutoring with Navin for a few months now and has made tremendous progress in his honors math and science courses. Navin also has been working on ACT prep with my son, which has made him more confident going into the next exam. We highly recommend Navin's tutoring services.
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!
She helped my daughter understand in 1 hour what her geometry teacher could not for half a year. It was amazing and awesome. My daughter is so excited that she understands her geometry now!
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.

I enjoy teaching math and spanish (also I can give support teaching Physics and Chemistry) My experience teaching Sciences and Math (in the U S A) is more than 5 years and in Peru is more than 15 years. Also I am a Spanish instructor at Purdue University Calumet. The first 20 minutes session will be free in order to know each other, materials and method. After that, the time is runing per hour session. Let me know if you need references.
