I needed a lot of help with the GMAT. After having taken Manhattan GMAT classes and spending a lot of money and time, I knew I needed to get a private tutor because I was only at a 600. Arbor Tutors provided me with an amazing tutor for the GMAT. He helped me through both verbal and Quant sections and I ended up getting a 740.
We are just beginning private tutoring with Jeremy but our experience so far has been excellent. He was very responsive and informative during our initial communications. Now that we have hired him, he has developed a tailored, step-wise plan to prepare our daughter for ACT. We appreciate that he cares very much about the "whole student."
Tutoring was very professional and went the extra mile- providing homework and tailored study techniques. I would absolutely recommend and hire again.
I studied with James for my SATs. He has a very unique way of approaching the exam that my prior tutors did not offer. For example, he taught me how to analyze questions based on the way they are written. This was a great skill to have and made me much more confident about going into the test room.

Are you looking for a math tutor who is well prepared for each lesson, who is a math genius, who is clearly passionate about teaching and who really cares whether his students are making progress? Well, you have found him in Aron G. from Spring Valley, NY! I was having difficulty with trigonometry. The support I was receiving in my private school was very limited, but I still wanted to take the Regent. I had moved several times during my elementary schooling and then skipped a grade, which didn't exactly help my math background. I had worked with several private tutors on trigonometry for months to prepare for the Regent. No improvement. In fact, I was feeling less and less confident that I would be able to master the subject. It seemed like I wasn't fitting into the cookie cutter. Then I started to work with Mr. G. At our first class, I couldn't believe how well prepared he was. He had written his own outline of the topic for our lesson. He provided a broad overview of the topic at hand, which made sense to me. He showed me some examples. Then he had me doing problems on my own--and I could! Working with Mr. G. for several weeks really made me feel like I would be able to pass the Regent. Mr. G. built on my strengths. But he also quickly identified my weaknesses. We zeroed in on gaps that I had in my mathematics background. It turns out that though I was missing some basics, I actually have somewhat of a facility for trigonometry. Once Mr. G. helped me to close the gaps and acquire the missing basics, I was able to do the trigonometry. Now I not only feel good about trigonometry, but I feel good about math in general. I am so happy and grateful to have found such a great tutor and great teacher in Aron G. from Spring Valley, NY.
One of the best tutors my daughter ever had. She struggled with the sat for a year until we found him. He made lessons around her needs and that helped her do well. She was able to get into the college she wanted.
Excellent! Professional and nice! A wonderful tutoring experience.
I first contacted Charles after sitting for my GMAT exam and being disappointed with my score. I thought I could do much better and after reading reviews of his tutoring work, I decided he would be best to help me improve my score. I was hoping Charles could show me where I was struggling because I felt I had a good handle on the material before each exam before. I purchased multiple GMAT tools from all the top courses, but apparently, I kept missing something. During my first session with Charles, he immediately knew how to solve each question efficiently, showing me multiple ways to arrive at the same answer. He also taught me mental math skills that saved me precious time in the difficult quant section. Charles was sincere in letting me know the amount of time and effort needed to score above 700. He planned out our sessions accordingly, making sure I mastered each topic before moving on. I appreciated how Charles set up our classes with short drill sets to test the concepts he taught me and if I continued to struggle with them, we would review until my understanding was concrete. After working with Charles three times a week for two months, I saw a 150 point increase in my official GMAT score. I would recommend Charles to anyone who plans on taking the GMAT or any other standardized exam.
Daniel did a great job providing SAT tutoring services. He was a strong communicator, punctual and most importantly seemed to be very helpful for my high school aged child. I would strongly recommend him.
Sandy is a great tutor. The moment I walked into her working space we felt (my family & I) welcomed by Sandy with a great warm smile. I automatically felt comfortable with her, as she seemed very caring and eager to help. I told her that my son needed a lot of help with reading and she told me not worry and that he will have a great learning experience. She has been very understanding of my son needs. She even reach out to his teacher in school to be on track with his needs. Sandy has also manage to fit his classes at convenient times and is always reachable by phone. I strongly recommend Sandy, she truly care about transforming my son into a confident and fluent reader. I am very happy and can thanks her enough.

Gail is awesome, and the tutors are excellent.
Simone has been a huge help to my daughter with her math skills improvement. My daughter has gotten A's in her least favorite subject and feels more confident in school. Simone is detailed in her teaching methods and truly a pleasure to have in our home. The quality of tutoring is exceptional and her responsiveness to Rachel's needs is always professional and courteous. I would recommend her tutoring help to anyone I know who has a struggling student at home.
Dan is an absolutely fantastic tutor. He's a super knowledgeable, smart, easy-to-work-with tutor who really helped my daughter improve substantially on the ACT. I've used other tutors in the past for academic support for her and she always complained about having to go to lessons, but never so with Dan - she actually looked forward to seeing him each week. I was very impressed and would highly recommend him to anyone! Major thumbs up, both for his skills with students and his ability to achieve top scores on high-stakes tests like the ACT.
Thomas was one of the best tutors I have ever had. After trying a few other SAT tutors, I decided to stick with him. Thomas found different ways to help me understand specific topics and worked with me when I needed extra help. He's constantly researching new tutroing methods and implements them into his sessions. With his help, I was able to increase my SAT score by around 200 points. My parents even signed my sister up for tutoring with Thomas because they saw what an amazing tutor he was. After my SAT process was done, Thomas walked me through the college process and helped me with my essays. Because of him, I am going to college with a full scholarship and I will graduate debt free. Thomas is an amazing tutor and an amazing person. He builds connections with his students and their families that extend outside of the academic sphere. I could not be more grateful to Thomas for all that he has done for me and my family.
Rabbi Jaffe is an excellent tutor. He arrives on time for each lesson and is very reliable. During the lesson, he breaks down the material so that it's understandable. He is very patient and understanding.
Michelle has worked with my now 11 year old daughter, for 5 years. She suffers from severe dyslexia & adhd. I can honestly say she would never be at grade level without Michelle. She has single handedly kept her up to speed with her incredible knowledge & ability to teach those who have trouble in a school environment. My daughter is now enrolled in a private prep school & is excelling. I'll forever continue to use Michelle every summer until she graduates. She is beyond gifted, with endless experience & expertise in all forms of educational delays or simply a tutor to further excel with any child that doesn't fit "the mold". I absolutely couldn't recommend her more, as much as I'd like to keep her to myself, I know she can help so many students & they love her dearly. My daughter, who has never been a huge fan of "school" never wants to leave Michelle! I can attest from years of sweat & tears of struggle, she has elliviated most of her worry.
This tutoring service was phenomenal. My understanding of Math and Reading SAT problems increased exponentially and would recommend this service to anyone who is trying to achieve a near perfect, if not perfect, score.
I think any adult who pays to study a test just goes to show how important the test is to the person who may be feeling uncertain about him/herself or perhaps some aspects of the test. Hence, I believe the greatest value of a tutor is his ability to motivate his students to the next level of learning and to feel confident in tackling the test. And that is exactly what I found in Fred. I was feeling apprehensive after attempting some questions on the mock GRE test. But now, with the support of Fred, I feel very confident and that confidence motivated me to want to do my very best. So from the bottom of my heart.. Thank you Fred for sharing my journey to a self actualisation need.
