I wish we would've started with Arbor Tutors in the beginning. I've been very bad at math my entire life. I flunked algebra three times before I called them. I had heard this is the company to go to. They literally changed my life.
I needed some help with algebra in 8th grade. My parents had heard of Jeremy from a friend, so we got in touch and he started tutoring me. Jeremy is an excellent tutor. He helped me with my Algebra and all of my other subjects. He has a vast array of knowledge in all subjects ranging from Algebra to History. On top of that, Jeremy taught me what was important to focus on. He helped me prepare for the SAT and showed me how important it was. I went on to do excellent on it. This is what separates him from other tutors. He informs you of things that will be important in the future even when it has nothing to do with what you are learning in class. All the while, Jeremy is friendly and down to earth. It felt like a friend or family member was tutoring me. I truly couldn't give him high enough praise.
Kamil is a wonderful GRE tutor! He has helped me prepare for the quantitative portion for the GRE. Kamil is willing to answer all questions and is helping me learn math skills as well as some useful tips for the GRE exam. I am confident that my score will improve significantly with Kamil's help!
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.
My son has already benefited significantly working with his new math tutor. Sam has been very knowledgable, flexible, responsive, and patient. We look forward to our ongoing work with her!
Vic is a Math genius. He knows his stuff and knows how to teach it. Glad I found him on thumbtack.com. I am a college freshman who needed help in Algebra 2. Vic had worked with me for several weeks now and I am so glad that I found the right tutor.
Lenore has been helping me hone my math skills in order to pass a placement exam. I feel lucky to have found her on Thumbtack. She is knowledgeable and patient. She clearly cares about my success and goes out of her way to accommodate my needs as well as my schedule. I intend to continue working with her in order to pass both the Elementary and College Algebra portions of the test so that I can complete my associates degree and move onto the University for my four year degree. I can honestly and emphatically recommend Lenore as a teacher, tutor and advocate! Sent from my iPhone
Student Information: Current senior in high school. Received tutoring in Calculus (currently taking AP Calculus BC). Tutor was very thorough. He made sure I had a strong pre-calc/calc foundation established before he moved onto more difficult topics. He continually reinforced previous lessons and connected them to new lessons. He not only taught lessons but also gave problem-solving strategies for problems in past AP tests. In my opinion, Mr. Siegerman is a very experienced and intelligent tutor.
Rob has been our son's math tutor for 2 years now for his 6th and 7th grade years in school. Rob is kind, patient, funny and super smart. He has a great way with children and makes learning both easy and interesting. He is the reason our son has done as well as he has these last 2 years. He explains things so clearly and effortlessly. He pushes our son when he needs to and our son totally responds. He knows his strengths and weaknesses and tailors his sessions around that. We wouldn't have survived the middle school years without his help!
Ridhi has given three Algebra lessons to my ninth grader so far. From my observation, Ridhi has the knowledge and the right skills in this area. I am waiting for the school test scores to see the actual results.
Danny is really great. I am working with Danny to take the CLEP exam in Algebra and it has been many, many years since I have been in school, so I remember very little about the subject. Danny is very knowledgeable and warm and immediately puts me at ease. He is dependable and calm and always manages to lift my spirits when I get discouraged. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
Though our 3rd grade child is a good reader, he was experiencing problems with writing and composition. He was behind his classmates. Over the summer we engaged Meghan for 10 lessons to work with him on composing written pieces, on the physical process of writing and on organization skills. To my great surprise, our son loved the lessons even though they were during summer break. She diagnosed a problem with the way he was making his letters (and therefore hindering his ability to write) and gave him new techniques to practice. She showed him how to organize papers and keep them neat. They worked on approaches to writing about subjects that interested him and he was so enthused by what he learned, he did his homework pieces right after class rather than waiting until the last minute. We found Meghan to be very encouraging and supportive and our son grew in confidence in his own abilities. It was a very enjoyable experience for him. For us parents, she kept us up to date with emails detailing his progress after each lesson. Our child is two months back at school and has just been awarded Student of the Month. Meghan is an excellent, committed and skilled teacher and we would highly recommend her.
I have been taking SAT prep lessons with 2 different teachers. My English tutor is a native speaker and my new math teacher connects with me from India. Both are very professional and experienced. My Math teacher is I think the best I probably had. The only problem was when I wanted to change my schedule because it's hard to do that after everything is already arranged.
Stuart had several tutoring with one of my daughters who was struggling with honors algebra 2. She hates math yet regularly came out of 1.5-2 hour tutoring sessions with a big smile on her face. Her grades have gone up along with her confidence. Stuart works not only on math skills but also on techniques for reducing math anxiety. He has sadly moved away from our area but my daughter continues to do well in her class. We will be having some Skype sessions with him if she encounters further challenges or needs a confidence boost. I highly recommend him.
My daughter is taking Algebra 2 honors in he freshman year so it was difficult for her from begginng to catch up the program. We decided to find a tutor for her and found Mr. Hammerman. He is extremely patient and very knowledgeable. He has been working with my daughter for two month and her math skill and confidence improved greatly. Since then her grades went from C+ to A and gets above 90 in her test and quizzes. Mr. Hammermen is always available when we need him and is always on time. We would highly reccomend him as a math tutor.
I have nothing but nice things to say about Rachel! I was taking back to back online courses for Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 from September to December. Considering I hadn't done Algebra since high school and now being a senior in college I figured it would probably be a good idea to find a tutor to help get me through the courses. I was able to meet with Rachel twice a week for about an hour to an hour and a half. She's very flexible and will work with you to find an area to meet! We would generally meet for our sessions at a Starbucks around the corner from my job. She is very knowledgable about all aspects of Algebra and was great at explaining all of the concepts that were covered in my course. She was also very patient and worked with me at a pace that made me feel very comfortable, and to top it all off she's sooo nice! I definitely recommend her for anyone needing tutoring for Algebra in the NYC area!
I have been tutored by Beata for 4 years so far. We started off by meeting up whenever I was struggling with a math lesson in school or if I had a project due and she would help me. I noticed quickly that Beata isn’t just trying to breeze through the time of our session but really tries to get me to learn the concept. Beata has helped me through countless geometry, algebra, and calculus lessons. Without Beata I don’t think that it would’ve been possible for me to pass high school and I thank her dearly for that.
I hired Robert after reading his tutoring philosophy. My son, a consistent high honor roll student, was struggling with 10th grade algebra 2/ trigonometry honors. After the second semester assessment said he was in danger of failing we knew he wasn't going to catch up on his own. I had no idea how to find a tutor and stumbled on Thumbtack. Robert's breadth of knowledge, not just trig, is quite remarkable. He is a gifted teacher. He quickly assessed my sons deficiencies and set out to bring him up to speed. Over the next several weeks, with weekly sessions, Robert would assign my son work and explain the topics in a way that that he finally started to get it. The next step in their relationship was that Robert convinced my son that if he put in the work he was capable of much more than just getting by. Robert has never tried to "sell" us more sessions, there were weeks where he felt he wasn't needed and we would skip those weeks. The end result was a 96 on the Regents. Quite a turnaround for a student who was failing in January and was hoping to just get a passing grade on the Regents. Won't hesitate to bring him back into our home for any future challenges my son may face.
Justin really helped me focus in on the areas that were major hurdles for me in math. I had always felt like I couldn't overcome my mental blocks in Algebra because it didn't come naturally to me and he gave me the confidence to look at the problems in a different light. I am so thankful I was able to find him!
There are not enough superlatives to describe how wonderful Carlos Juarez is! He has been tutoring our now 11 year old son for 2 years. Our son comes home from a long day at school and can't wait to begin his tutoring session with Carlos. He has learned a tremendous amount during each session and, most importantly, he has gained the confidence to attack the most challenging of math problems, due to the way Carlos approaches his tutoring. He offers suggestions, solutions, and challenges our son's mind so that he can manage the math work on his own. Carlos has tremendous resources to target lessons to our son's needs. There is not anything more we could have wanted from our tutoring experience. Anyone who works with Carlos, has been given a GIFT! Good Luck and Enjoy.
Before studying with Ruven, I was really behind in my calculus class and had minimal hope of doing well. After only 2 lessons, I caught up and actually learned material ahead of my class. Now I feel really confident in calculus due to Ruven tutoring me. Ruven's style of tutoring is hands-on and he makes the subject clear. I highly recommend him to anybody that is struggling or wants to get a head in math.
