Arbor Tutors is the best.
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 was excellent help for my daughter. She has a learning disability and many extracurricular activities. My daughter said he was one of the best teachers she has ever had and wished he taught in her high school. He was patient. He never criticized her or made her feel inadequate. He just showed her what she did right and how to do better the next time. She gained confidence each week, and she started to look forward to tutoring and college applications. Also, we had to reschedule a few times because of her extracurricular activities and schedule changes, and it was never a problem; Howard was very accommodating. Britney’s score went from a 1030 to 1190 and she was able to apply to Appalachian State, her first-choice school. We will be contacting him next year for our son.
Worked with my daughter most of her high school years and explained so much. Highly recommend. Calm, smart and good demeanor for tutoring. He is very approachable and easy to work with.
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!
I love thumbtack so much I shared it with my daughter in college and she was able to find a Physics tutor in Wilmington NC. Literacy Connection has helped my son with his college admissions essays and we are all happy!!!
Luke is professional, skilled, and relates well to teenagers, which is a challenge. We have hired tutors previously but have never been this satisfied.
We just love Mrs Messinger! She has been tutoring our 3rd grade daughter this year and we couldn't be more thrilled with the results. Our daughter has a mild reading disorder, which has caused her to struggle at school. She started the school year reading below her grade level, but with the help of Mrs Messinger she is now right on track and has exceeded the goals her teachers had set for her. The positive feedback from her school and jump in reading levels has been phenomenal. From the the first time you meet Mrs Messinger, her love of learning and children is apparent. She has a genuine interest in your child and wants them to succeed as much as you do. She has made my daughter feel so smart and special! We feel very fortunate that our daughter has been able to work with her and would highly recommend her to anyone.
Our child has worked with Linda for approximately six months and has shown strong improvements in math. From the outset, she had our student work on organizational skills which complemented the tutoring sessions and led to greater understanding of the material being taught. She is very familiar with the Wake County Schools math curriculum. I highly recommend Linda.
We are so thankful to have Alicia as a tutor for our child. She has a great mix of skills and is a very effective and kind teacher.
Peter set a very good foundation for my skills in Algebra, Geometry, and English. He was patient, kind, and able to effectively answer many of my questions. Would recommend him to any student.
We will see if we can get our time schedules together to move forward with a great reading tudor for the summer! Nice lady!
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.
Carole has been one of the most encouraging, insightful, knowledgeable tutors we have ever experienced working with. She has not only helped our daughter with the actual work, but has also taught her to learn how to stay organized, been a source of encouragement to our daughter and taught her the study skills my daughter needs before heading off to college next year. I would recommend her and have recommended her with great eagerness! She gets an A+ in our book!
