If you are looking for a math, science, or English tutor you have come to the right place. I am a junior in college and have used Arbor Tutors to help me succeed and become a more efficient student. Top-notch service at a very reasonable price
I needed help with my English class and my tutor helped me go from a C- to an A. Very good.
Laura is very proficient with coaching English as a second language. She will teach you the skills to interact with people (e.g.: in your line of business when you are in their country) who speak other languages. The skills include learning to be comfortable with the second language, and not just with the words themselves.
Robin and Steve are amazing people and tutors!! They are excellent at what they do and we refer them to friends and family constantly!! Our kids really enjoy going to see them weekly as well!!
We wanted my 7th grade son to strengthen his writing skills over the summer. With high school quickly approaching, we were hoping for him to enter with solid writing skills so his focus could be on the content of his work without struggles with language and structure. Kendra Hadnott was the perfect person to help him with this. Every part of her process is unique and customized. We started with a meeting to define our goals. Not only did she focus on our objectives, but also our child’s overall interests. He is obsessed with soccer and it was exciting as we sat down the next week to go over her tutoring plan for the summer how she incorporated reading and writing work that included his favorite soccer players, his friends, current teen technology, and more. He was thrilled to write about these topics and was really engaged in her lessons. Throughout the summer they worked on everything from spelling, vocabulary, grammar, language use, sentence structure, and essay structure. Each time they met I received a progress report on his accomplishments. He went into eighth grade with improved confidence and it showed in his writing. He tested into Honors English at OPRF and we are certain that Kendra’s tutoring helped to get him to that level. He will continue to work with her this summer to be certain he will hit the ground running next year. I highly recommend Kendra for your child’s tutoring. She is extremely professional, engaging, and it is evident that working with children is her calling.
Greatly positive and highly capable English tutor! Victoria is one of the best English tutors I have ever met. She is very patient, positive and energetic tutor who can work with any level of English learners. She is also very knowledgeable and skillful writing tutor in various subjects such as politics, culture, social issue and business etc. I used be a 'C' student from my English composition class, but she helped me to improve my weak points of writing and guided to build a strong firm foundation of college essay writing. I highly recommend Victoria as a tutor to whoever needs help in writing or leaning English. She is the best of the best.
Marissa was an excellent tutor! She helped me with my English homework and because of her I got a much better grade in the class. I feel like I am a better writer because of her and I use the skills she gave me in all of my writing assignments now. She was incredibly professional but also very friendly and easy to talk to. Essay writing is now so much easier for me because of the the things Marissa taught me. I would recommend Marissa as a tutor to anyone looking to improve their writing.
Allison has been working with my 6th grade daughter tutoring her in math and i cant believe the difference in such a short time. Its so nice to see my child have a level of confidence when it comes to math that she has never had before
Suzanne has been my daughter's tutor for the past ten years. She very quickly tapped into her strengths and interests to provide fun ways to improve her language arts skills. Suzanne's special education background, in addition to her patient and kind personality have made her an excellent teacher. My daughter has absolutely loved going to "tutoring" all these years!
Great tutor. Very intelligent and relatable. Knows how to make material interesting with age apropriate examples.
The best part of Ramonas tutoring was the possibility to write her a message any time of the day (or night ...) if i had trouble with my homework. I really recommend her!
Not only was Wendi a knowledgable tutor, she made the whole experience easy. Just from our first lesson I've gained confidence in multiple subjects. I'm looking forward to continuous progress and development pertaining to the ACT.
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!
I asked Cindy to help me improve my Spanish, and that's exactly what she did. A foreign language did not come easy to me, but Cindy' approach and her infinite patience helped me to succeed.
Miss. Kolterman did a great job. She tutors to my girls and my girls improve a lot on their subjects.
