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.
We did both online and in-home tutoring and liked both.
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.
Tim did a fantastic job tutoring my son for the ACT. He totally understood where to concentrate their time. Highly recommend.
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.
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
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!!
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!!
I provide one-on-one teaching in reading, creative writing, reader's theater, study skills, language arts, story telling and all creative learning! I understand the need and the desire to express yourself creatively without judgement. My approach to education and learning is allowing each student to feel special and to explore and find their creativity. I love teaching and learning from my students!
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 tutor various subjects as well as SAT and ACT. I have experience tutoring in Loyola University and RSM in Naperville.
