Fantastic! I can recommend Arbor Tutors without any hesitation.
Laurel is a capable and experienced tutor. She is especially skilled in teaching children for whom English is a second language, or who may be having difficulty coming from a home where English is not spoken well. She is patient and has a great variety of materials that she draws upon depending on the student's need.
Howard have been tutoring my two daughters so that they could increase there SAT/ACT scores. He slso tutors me in Pre-Cal Math and English Literature. He is an excellent tutor that knows the material he is teaching. He is always willing to go above and beyond. He makes sure we understands the material. I was surprised when after just 3 weeks working with my daughter, she was able to raise her SAT scores by 90 points. My daughter has an A in Math now all because of Howard. Myself was failing Math in College. I had a D in the class and now I have a B. My first test I got 46%, and after working with Howard within two weeks I got a 94% on my next test. I don’t know how he know these stuff. It just comes naturally to him. If you want your child or even you has an adult going back to colkege like myself; Howard his the guy you need. My daughters are not the easiest kids to teach, but everytime Howard leaves my home they have more confidence in themselves and they grades have increase. So I know he’s doing a grest job.I recommend him with a 110%.
Ms Lion is an incredible tutor! So professional, prepared, organized, but so kind and sweet and understanding and works so well with our son with special needs. We have worked with her for three years now and she works amazingly well with our son. We have tried multiple tutors before her and none of them were the right fit. She can accomplish so much with our son in an hour its incredible. She is able to keep him on task, complete his work, while making it an enjoyable experience for him. He is always happy and excited to go and work with her! She is truly a gem! We have also used her as an invaluable resource for IEP meetings! Words can't express how wonderful she is!
Frank has been an exceptional tutor for my daughter in 8th grade. This year has been particularly difficult for her and I've recently learned , the majority of the class due to a less than stellar teacher unfortunately and Frank is keeping her on track and ready to move to 9th grade math. For students that struggle witht he subject, he is patient and explains things in their "language" making it easier to learn. I will continue to partner with Frank for my daughter's math education into the summer and I am sure she will meet the 9th grade curriculum with the foundation and confidence required to excel. Thanks Frank!
My daughter was struggling with her writing. I was worried about her taking any kind of tests. Shelley found her strengths and weaknesses. She made a tutoring plan to improve my daughter's writing skills. She always makes learning fun with my daughter. Since then, I have seen an improvement for my daughter's writing and reading skills. She has my highest recommendation as an English tutor. Thanks
Ms.Jami started tutoring my children (ages 3 and 4) in Spanish a little less than a year ago. During that time my son's natural interest for reading increased but decreased when working with mommy. Ms. Jami did some preliminary testing to see if he was truly ready and soon she began tutoring him in reading also. Initially, I was concerned that he would not be able to tolerate 30 mins of Spanish then 30 mins reading. However, he is able to maintain in seat behavior with a short break between subjects and the 60 min sessions go by quickly. There is an award system in place to manage behavior and fun interactive hands on activities (singing, music, tactile and visual stimuli) which sustains their attention. As an educator it evident that tasks are age appropriate and consistently tweaked to meet the needs of my children. My children are day and night in terms of personalities and learning styles. I am alway's amazed how Ms. Jami manages both of them in the same session. A sign of a great teacher and a gentle spirit. Ms. Jami presents with weekly lesson plans, carry over activities, affordable rates and she genuinely likes children. I highly recommended her, she is one of my best finds on Craigslist to date! The children love and respect her!
Great Act tutor! I've learned so much and feel very good about thanking the ACT again.
I got Debra's name through a friend who's daughter has difficulty with studying. Best $40 I ever spent! Debra is incredibly patient with my son (4th grade) on his reading skills. After a quick evaluation, she knew the best approach for him. We are having Debra on a weekly basis now. Very reasonable rate -- I would gladly pay more for Debra's tutoring.
Club Z was exactly what we were looking for our son. Evan just graduated high school and is preparing to go to college this fall. He needed help with improving upon his writing skills so that he would be well prepared to handle the writing challenges in college. Becky was Evan's tutor and she did an excellent job in helping him achieve that goal. His writing skills have greatly improved as well as his confidence in his abilities. I would highly recommend Club Z for anyone looking for tutoring. Cecelia Mills, Durham N.C.
I have taught English for 7 years. I enjoy working with students of all ages and abilities. I have been told that it is my patience and enthusiasm that my students like best. I believe that being a good teacher means challenging, but more importantly encouraging your students. I want my students to know that I am there for them to help them with the goals that they want to achieve. Whether you are a beginner wanting to start with vocabulary and conversation or you are an advanced learner wanting to work on accent reduction, I am happy to help.
If you need help with a Spanish class (beginning Spanish to advanced Spanish), I can help out! I graduated at UNC Chapel Hill with a bachelor's degree in Hispanic literature and cultures. I've tutored two students so far, and they've both received A's in their Spanish class!
