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.
Anna is a valuable yoga instructor. Thank you Anna for wonderful private yoga lessons it is always exiting for me and makes me peaceful and much happier too. Thank you 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.
Wonderful experience working with this company. They connect me with competent tutors and they always respond to my inquiries immediately.
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.
My oldest of three children is 22 years old so I have been through my fair share of tutors. Lenore is the best tutor I have encountered. She really cares for her students and will go above and beyond to help them succeed. Needless to say, I would highly recommend Lenore.
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.
Stacy was AMAZING when she worked with my daughter, Clementine, when we were worried about her reading ( and writing ). We came to Stacy when my daughter was in 2nd grade, and I am so HAPPY with the results!!!!!!! Clementine LOVES to read. She became a kid who could not put down a book! And she became an incredible test taker, with top scores, I don't mean to brag, it is just here is a kid who we were WORRIED about... I must say, Stacy gives a lot of homework, that focuses in on the mechanics of reading, and we had our daughter do it. And, I think that really helped. Clementine progressed so quickly, with Stacy. I am VERY Pro---the Orton Gillingham technique. Long ago, when I was a kid, in the 70's, I did not know how to read, and unfortunately I fell through the cracks with methods that did not work for me. But, finally in 4th grade, I got an Orton Gillingham tutor, and I did miraculously, with this technique . I was a struggling kid, academically, who then went on to do really well in high school, and went to a really great college (Oberlin), and then Graduate School (NYU). I don't mean to brag, but my point is, I believe in this technique, and Stacy is FANTASTIC !!! She is the best....worth every penny, but have your kid do the homework.
Mr. Frost was our daughter's Mandarin teacher in middle school. He also worked with her as a tutor in the summers. We credit his enthusiasm and natural talent for teaching for our daughter's love of the subject. His high standards became her high standards. Her plan to pursue Chinese as a major in college is due in no small part to her experience as his student.
Gail is awesome, and the tutors are excellent.
Hong is a great tutor. He is dedicated, knowledgeable, flexible and very friendly.
Elliott is a very patient and knowledgeable teacher.
She is a very talented tutor, and I will continue working with her for the long run!
Kit tutors my daughter in Chinese as well as sign language and she is professional and an outstanding tutor.
Martha is an excellent Spanish tutor. She works well with my 8th grade son, and she has helped him become comfortable with the language. His scores have risen thanks to her.
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.
