Arbor Tutors is amazing! My daughter scored very well on her ACT exams.
Both my girls worked with Susan for SAT and ACT prep. With her help and guidance both of them improved on their reading scores! Thanks Susan:-)
Pat has helped us with ACT prep, college essay writing assistance, providing us with tutors for organizational skills, math and physics. We have been tremendously happy with ALL the services that ColPrep tutoring provides. Our son has gotten into 4 out of 5 schools that he applied to (5th school hasn't sent out acceptance info yet) and we owe it all to Pat. You can't go wrong!
It was a lot of fun working with Howard. We worked really hard and made a lot of progress. Together, we challenged each other and I feel that we both improved because of it. He was supportive and always had faith in me and my abilities. With his help I was able to get my ACT score from a 30 up to a 35! He stayed in contact with me after I took the ACT and checked in and see how I felt about it, and he continued to help even after our tutoring sessions ended. I would absolutely recommend using Howard as a tutor!
Steve has been a great help to my daughter's math grade. He's very helpful and flexible with his meeting times, because of my daughter's busy schedule. They've only had a few sessions, but I cant wait to see how she improves throughout her algebra course.
Mrs. Avery has always been excited about working with my son each week. She is very knowledgeable and always prepared before each session. Mrs. Avery follows up after every visit and keep in touch about my sons progress and goals. I would recommend Avery Learning Lab to anyone looking for an excellent tutoring and learning service.
My daughter needed extra help for honors Algebra 2. I was very glad to find Miss Jay . She is excellent, makes learning simple, and above all she puts her 100% to help her students . I would recommend strongly recommend her.
Ellie's an organized and creative teacher! She really cares about her students, and she'll go the extra mile to find out what works for you to help you learn. She finds ways to make learning enjoyable, and to make sure you accomplish your goals. I would definitely recommend her!
My daughter needed some help with SAT prep, and Ms. Blaine was wonderful. She was able to help her identify what she was not understanding and provided effective strategies to conserve time while taking the test.
Great Act tutor! I've learned so much and feel very good about thanking the ACT again.
Anna worked with my son to prep him for the new SAT this past spring. She worked with us to meet in a mutually convenient spot, and was always flexible with scheduling. Our son needed the most help with the essay, and Anna spent hours prepping him on how to brainstorm, organize, and write the essay on the SAT in such a short amount of time. She also helped him with the reading and writing sections by identifying his strengths and weaknesses, and helping him figure out the best strategy to beat the test. We will definitely be using Anna again to tutor in English next school year!
Could see him right away and he felt more confident after the first session.
Glad that I found MrFullton on Thumbtack and like his approach towards his teaching and makes the student comfortable and help them to gain confidence in their learning process While being tutored, He is flexible with his schedule and would definitely recommend him to friends. My child has definitely pulled her academic scores and has gained much confidence in pre calculs that she was struggling past month.
I am a current Economics graduate student and teaching assistant at NC State. I completed my Bachelor of Arts degree in Theoretical Economics, Mathematical Finance, and Business Administration with a minor in Mathematics at Trinity University in San Antonio. While attending school in Texas, I worked part time as a ACT/SAT Tutor and Classroom Instructor for Kaplan Test Prep. I have experience teaching classes and tutoring students of all ages, having taught high school SAT/ACT prep classes as well as giving undergraduate-level economics lectures and tutoring. My schedule is very flexible: I will have classes for about 12 hours a week for the next 2 weeks (ending at 2:45 each day), and then I will be available at all times after May 5th, until classes resume in August.

What makes me different? I tutor professionally full time rather than as a hobby or side job. I absolutely LOVE my job, and it shows in the quality of my work. When I take on a student I am invested in giving them everything I can to help them succeed. That often means I stay a few minutes extra or go out of my way to squeeze someone in my schedule for the day. I am patient and give constructive as well as positive feedback. I'm young and can better relate to my students. I am very flexible and do my best to accommodate whenever possible. Over the years I have developed unique strategies for explaining steps in ways that students can remember. I focus less on the proper vocabulary, if necessary, and use common language that the student will understand. I feel it is the teacher's job to explain the why of math and teach vocabulary, but my job as a tutor is to make sure the students can do the work.
Open communication, technical know-how, and a true passion for education are the fundamental qualities on which I have grown my tutoring business. Over the past five years, I have helped more than 100 students gain admission to their dream colleges and have averaged a score increase of approximately 260 points for the SAT and 6.5 points for the ACT. I have personally played a role in the lives of students who have earned admission into such institutions as Stanford, Duke, UVA, Cal Tech, Georgia Tech, UNC, and UPenn. Over the years, I have developed a very efficient method for identifying and addressing student needs using a curriculum that is custom fit for each student. This curriculum includes a carefully proportioned combination of test taking strategies and academic development.
I tutor K through 12 in all subjects at all levels. I also tutor in test prep -- SAT, ACT, PSAT, SSAT, PLAN, and ISEE. All our tutors have a master's degree or better and 3 years (min) of teaching experience. There are no contracts; you pay as you go!
