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)

I was very pleased with the service. I found a tutor no problem.
Excellent tutor. My daughter is doing extremely well.
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!
With Renjie's scholastic knowledge, gift for teaching, and proven strategy, our daughter raised her ACT score to a 30. She expects to improve her score even more on the next test.
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.
Excellent tutor!! Passionate about what he does and great value.
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!
Tim did a great job with my daughter preparing for the ACT. He helped with strategies for the test as well as with getting in the proper frame of mind for preparing and taking the test. He is very flexible with scheduling and extremely responsive. With his excellent coaching, she raised her score from 31 to 34. He is a fantastic tutor.
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.
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!
My daughters have been going to Ms. Wober for more than a year, and it has been amazing! They love her style, dedication and approach to teaching, and they look forward to each class. I'd highly recommend her!!!
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.
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!
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 teach outside the box, tapping into the specific learning style of the student. Books alone are boring, that's why I utilize fun and creative ideas to help the students understand concepts of subject matter. No one sleeps when I teach.
Over the years I've developed many tips and tricks to help children learn, whether it is for advanced levels, or those that need that extra help.
