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)
Hundreds of tutors to choose from.
I was very pleased with the service. I found a tutor no problem.
Bertina was an awesome tutor, and made me feel so comfortable. I was nervous about learning such a big amount of information in a short amount of time, but Bertina was able to make things manageable. She encouraged me every step of the way and I feel very prepared to get my goal score on the ACT.
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!
I'm very happy I came to Telos Tutors- very friendly, easy to understand, and I learned new ways to solve problems. I'm really looking forward to working more with Mr. Abraham!!
I needed help on the GRE and I was told Arbor Tutors is a world-class company. Both my math and verbal sections went up by over 10 points each.
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!!
Great tutor. Very intelligent and relatable. Knows how to make material interesting with age apropriate examples.
After deciding to return to school, and complete my degree, the last class I had to take was a Technical Math class. Being years later, this class was no longer offered - I had to take it as an independent student, meaning I had no instructor, or class to show up to, only a syllabus and a Math book. A Math assistance area was available to students, and there I met the tutor I write of here. Of the 6 to 8 tutors available, I signed up with Dave as much as possible. The class I was taking dealt with Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry as well as an introduction to Calculus. I could barely remember how to factor a problem, but working with Dave, he spent the time to help me get through the basics, and had the patience to answer many of my off the wall questions, and many that I thought were unrelated. The first test I took before I asked for any assistance, I had totally bombed. A 47... I knew I'd need help and after working with Dave for a week and a half, the retake test I took got me an 88. Dave helped me gain the confidence I needed to figure out problems on my own, and showed me how I could apply other concepts and equations from other chapters and solve new problems in a variety of ways. I am on my last exam now, and I still choose to wait in line to work with this excellent tutor, when there are another 5 available at any time. If you are in need of assistance with Math, and are looking for someone to help you either from the very basics to intermediate and advanced topics, I would highly recommend Dave as he is an outstanding tutor, with loads of patience and knowledge, as well as being incomparable to other tutors in his willingness to help and assist you as much as you need. Thanks Dave!
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.
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.
Joanna is awesome...my daughter loves working with her...and when your child asks to go to tutoring, that says it all...
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!
Sireethon is a great tutor. She smoothly explained my daughter many math problems. She's extremely intelligent and she's always prepared. I really recommend her as a math tutor.

Three R's tutoring and school assemblies I specialize in reading, writing, math, and science instruction for elementary and middle school children. I have a BS in Education with a major in elementary education. I taught children for 30 years as an education specialist, naturalist, and volunteer coordinator at Fullersburg Woods Nature Education Center in Oakbrook. For the past 15 years, I have been a professional storyteller, presenting educational programs at schools and libraries that inspire people of all ages to the following: * love reading, storytelling, and the three R's * take care of the earth, Earth day every day * care for other people, teach the mind touch the heart, character education I have three children. They are all excellent students, including one with a learning disability that affects his reading and writing. Thanks to hard work on his part and tutoring help from me, he was a straight A student in college and has two master's degrees. Motivation and inspiration played a big part in his success. When young children have fun while reading, they not only learn how to read better; they also learn to love reading. Reading is the fundamental skill upon which all formal education is based. Early reading instruction will help your child get ahead in school. I can help your child improve his or her current reading level as well as develop a love for reading.
