There is a reason why everybody trusts Arbor Tutors. I had to take the GRE after having taken the exam a couple of times before. Arbor hooked me up with a team of Tutors who were able to help assess my gaps and arrange a game plan so that I could be more effective the next time I took the exam.
Having Andy tutor my 11th grade son for the math portion of the PSAT was a great decision and money well spent. Andy tested my son and then designed a curriculum to strengthen his weak areas. Andy also sent me regular progress reports throughout the process. Midway through tutoring, my son took another practice test and scored roughly 100 points higher. I plan to use Andy again before my son takes the SAT next year.
Ben is tutoring our 6th and 7th graders. It was extremely easy to get our tutoring sessions scheduled-we were able to find a convenient day and time within a few days. Ben has been very accommodating and our kids have been really happy with the sessions. They feel they have been better prepared for their tests. We have been impressed and plan to continue until the end of the school year. Thanks to Higher Mark Tutors!
Daniel did an amazing job with my son's ACT. For my son's first practice ACT test, he got a 13. He was historically poor in test-taking and math. We signed up with Daniel for twenty 2-hour sessions over a semester. After all of the tutoring, my son scored a 20 on his ACT test! Incredible.
We had a very positive experience with Mr. Freed's tutoring service, Aside from the academic aspect, Mr. Freed offerered my son practical test taking strategies and helpful advice for his future.
I would recommend Debbie as a tutor for multiple reasons. She helped me prepare for the ACT in a few short sessions. She had a solution to a every problem I faced; she was very strategic. I learned strategies I had never heard of. Debbie is also a very positive and enthusiastic tutor, which helped to decrease the stress of the test. She did more than she needed to. She was a very understanding and flexible tutor. For example, she looked over tests that I took and assessed what/how I could have done better, but even more, what I did not understand. Overall, Debbie is a very enjoyable, kind, and well prepared tutor to work with.
Laura has been working with my daughter since September and has done an EXCELLENT job! She is very easy to coordinate times with and flexible with last minute changes. She has helped my daughter to understand concepts and problems and has been an integral part of my daughter testing out of her Geometry class. I highly recommend Laura to anyone needing help in math. She is patient, skilled and able to "get through" to children to help them grasp the material.
Jake was extremely responsive and scheduled time right away to meet with my son to help him prep for the ACT. Would definitely recommend Jake to anyone for tutoring.
My daughter has always struggled with her confidence in math. Janelle is helping her tremendously. Test grades improved after just a couple sessions.
Sarah did a great job preparing a meal for me. I needed a dinner for 6 people on a weekend trip and hired Sarah to prepare the meal in advance for me since I didn't have the time. I told Sarah what I wanted (lasagna and salad) and she took care of groceries, prep, and packaged everything up with very clear, simple baking instructions. We communicated quickly and clearly so I was sure of what I was getting. She even was thoughtful enough to prepare a single serving of a gluten-free pasta dinner for friend and included a generous bag of chocolates! Six hungry skiers were very pleased with the delicious and easy meal, I would definitely endorse Sarah's cooking skills.
Came a couple times before my final chemistry test and helped me learn everything previous from throughout the year! He knows how to teach information in a way that makes sense and easy to understand! He broke down hard problems into simple ones that you can wrap your head around! Thanks again!
ACT Test Prep
I am in algebra 2 and I started out struggling but once I started tutor sessions with Meir, my test scores have gone up. These concepts are much easier for me to understand. He breaks the concepts down to get to your level of understanding.
The Swansons helped me study for the ACT and PSAT tests, with great results, and together we have been planning for college. They are extremely adaptable, knowledgeable, and considerate people who have given me a head start in the confusing and competitive education system.
I really appreciated working with Sandra. She was very knowledgeable and patient in understanding our needs as a client and delivering on them. She took the time to make sure she was clear on all that was required in order to communicate our training in Spanish. She not only provided Spanish expertise, but also shared her insight into some cultural differences between the US and Latin America which helped immensely in tailoring our messages. We tested the content with final users and the results exceeded our expectations.
If you are looking for a Calculus or Physics tutor Alex without a doubt is the person to use. I had been spending two hours a night with my daughter and she was meeting with her teacher before and after school to no avail. She was flunking AP Calculus and their was only 4 weeks left in the class. I hired Alex in panic mode. She had two unit exams and a final left to bring her grade up. In four short weeks Alex brought her grade up from an E to a C and she got a B on the final. There is no way my daughter would have passed the class if it had not been for Alex. Alex instilled her with the confidence that she could learn the material and would be successful. That she would be able to learn the Calculus and Physics that she needs to pursue her goal of a career in Marine Biology. Alex has helped keep the dream alive in my daughter and I will forever be grateful for that. When I listened to Alex interact with my daughter during the sessions his love of teaching, genuine desire to help my daughter and ability to connect with her in a fun and productive way was way beyond any of the other tutors I have ever used. As far as responsiveness, Alex rose to the challenge and juggled his schedule. He worked around my daughters cross country meet schedule and other commitments while also making sure he was able to meet with her the night before each exam to help her with final prep for them. He met with her two to three times a week when it worked for her to make sure she passed the class. My daughter has dyslexia which creates unique challenges particularly in math. She tends to look at problems and get to solutions in different ways then most people would. Alex took the time to make sure he understood how my daughter was looking at problems and would adjust the way he approached the solution to match her problem solving style rather than trying to force her to solve the problem using the standard textbook solution guide. Alex made the sessions productive but also fun. I would hear them joke and make light of errors. My daughter also used Alex the following term for her Honors Physics class with the same results. Alex took the time to drive to my daughters school to meet with her physics teacher. He reviewed the curriculum and her tests to see what areas my daughter was struggling with which helped him fine tune his tutoring time with my daughter. You will be extremely pleased with Alex.
