My daughter was having a very difficult time with math. Her teacher is horrible. Arbor Tutors was able to do an excellent job at getting her caught up and ahead of the class.
Rodrigo is fabulous! My girls have learned so much from him. He is very well organized and has various curriculum for the kids.
Bertina provided tutoring I both math and executive functioning for my middle school aged son who is autistic. With her help, he was able to institute a homework schedule he could stick to on his own, and we no longer had a battle every night. Bertina is kind, thoughtful and communicative, but is also able to hold ground with a disruptive kid.
Laura is a great math tutor. She has helped my daughter get an A in both honors geometry and honors algebra II
Renjie and I worked together over the course of two months in preparation for a GRE test. We had long sessions (3 hours) each time, but Renjie was focused and prepared and all the breaks we took were on my account. I took two Statistics courses in university, but aside from this hadn't taken any math classes since high school, so I focused all of my hours with Renjie in math. He has all of the hard skills that a good teacher/tutor needs: he has a deep knowledge of math and used repertoire of teaching strategies to help me learn. The teaching and learning strategies Renjie shared with me in math make it so I'm confident in saying I know he has the same skills for verbal reasoning in the GRE (specially) or vocabulary more generally. More than this, Renjie is kind, understanding, friendly, and easy to connect with. Both Renjie and I had traveled and worked abroad for a number of years and so it was fun to share stories in between problem solving. I got accepted into my graduate program of choice, got a full scholarship and a stipend to be a Graduate Teaching Assistance. It was a pleasure working with Renjie and I would recommend him to any who have an interest in improving their scores on a variety on tests, or to improve their performance in school at all levels.
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.
Tim did a fantastic job tutoring my son for the ACT. He totally understood where to concentrate their time. Highly recommend.
I am an encouraging, energetic and effective English language tutor who will help you improve your reading, writing and comprehension skills. I work in corporate, collegiate and high school settings helping students prepare for presentations, study for standardized college prep/AP exams, read analytically and write clearly and concisely. I am a positive tutor who is dedicated to helping you accomplish your goals.
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...
Nick has been tutoring my 11 year old son in math for 2 years almost. He is an amazing tutor, always on time and courteous. My son has had a rough time in math but since we acquired nicks help my son is doing much better and his grades have definetly improved a lot. Thank you nick for all your hard work and patience!
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.
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.
I'm an educator that can work with all types of students because I'm a special education teacher.
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.
