My son needed a lot of help with both the SAT and the ACT. Arbor Tutors really came through. Perfect 36 on the math section of the ACT.
James is a great tutor! He really was able to help me with almost anything. If he doesn't know some material that you need help with, he will research and study the material to be able to help you! He is a very smart and patient person. James really helps you understand concepts that may be hard to understand because he is an easy person to understand. Highly recommend having James as your tutor!
Jason is an excellent teacher and is knowledgeable across all subjects. He was able to immediately improve my son's test scores by giving him quick techniques and simple guides to answering test questions. He improved my son's ACT score enough to get him accepted into an Ivy school.
I appreciate that the experience is taylored to our needs.

I am a Chinese and have been studying in the U.S. for 3 years at SLU. I read both Chinese and English books, which makes me mix the Western and Eastern culture well. I could do translation for business, personal and academic. Let me help me get through the culture barriers at a reasonable and affordable price!
I will tutor grades 1 to 3 on any subject. You can come to me at the library, or I can travel to you at home or a place of your choice.
I am an ESOL teacher in a public high school. I specialize in beginners. I have had much success in teaching reading, writing, speaking, and listening. I have a passion and an empathy for ELL's as my wife is from the Dominican Republic. I lived there for one year and did not know a word of Spanish. I know the rewards and the challenges of second language acquisition.
I provide Spanish lessons for only two hours per day and available three days per week. You have to learn the language from a native speaker.
WIth an understanding of what it's like to need extra help in school, I come with the compassion and patience that allows me to relate to students. Years of writing stories about incredible people all over this country has equipped me with the strong writing skills I have today. Along with the skill is also a level of creativity that I encourage my students to express. I don't just teach the basics, and share with them just enough to get by, but how to write in a way that makes the process an experience they learn to love. It has always been my belief that doing something you love can only lead to success. That is what I hope to impart to my students.
Over the course of my experience I have worked with children with learning challenges, improved students’ skill and confidence in Math, taught high school students test strategies and reviewed content to prepare them for the ACT, taught a summer course in Latin reading enrichment, and am currently teaching a summer Algebra prep course. I tutored for 2 1/2 years with Tutor Doctor and then independently for 1 1/2+ years after the franchise dissolved. I have raised students ACT scores from 1-3 points overall, and up to 5 points on individual sections. I have improved students' grades in geometry and algebra, and increased a student's confidence and scores in 7th grade math. (When I started tutoring her she had melt-downs at almost every session. Now she has been getting B's and approaching her homework with a more positive attitude.) I also helped a student improve his study habits for Biology and raise his grade from failing to a B. I have also worked with an ADHD student to help him keep up in a college prep high school setting. As well as tutoring high school subjects, I also teach piano performance.
I am available for tutoring primarily in biology and possibly anthropology, as well as other sciences, social sciences, french, writing, and most younger level subjects are also a possibility. I am also available for public health and biology up to the graduate level. Please contact me directly to speak further.
I am a certified elementary teacher where I have taught first, second, and third grade. I have tutored many students in and outside of my school district. I have also earned many professional development and attended conferences to enhance my teaching knowledge.
Hi there, I am a certified middle school English teacher in St. Louis city. I love what I do, and would be honored to assist your children with reading and writing skills. I have experience with all reading levels.
I am helping students with English writing, language, communication, syntax and anything else related to the English language.
I was the supervisor of the largest community education center (Mullanphy) in St. Louis City (now retired). The youth attending the center were primarily 12 to 20 years old. We had a rule that in order to play basketball, you had to have three tutoring hours a week at the center, even if you were an honor student. I managed to get the honor students to tutor their peers if they were interested. I have been coaching students since 1985, from middle school through high school, as well as taught on the adjunct faculty of three community colleges. I like working with students, although my professional career was in business more than education. I have always got along well with youth and find it a worthwhile activity especially now that I am "semi-retired" and have more freedom with my schedule. You need to be consistent not gullible but respectful. What's easy for one person can be Greek to another. People learn differently, and the key is to find the key to each individual.
Allow me to edit your written document. I work one-on-one or, if more than one, in small groups. I am friendly, professional, and organized. I can work with material provided or if teaching will work with student provided the material,
