I enlisted the help of Arbor Tutors to help me with test prep for grad school. Oh man! I am SUPER happy I did that. The tutoring manager walked me through the whole process and set me up with TWO tutors. They also said I could change tutors at any time, but I didn't need to. I was accepted into all of my top choices (Columbia, Penn, Cornell and Duke). I used the application services also (they reviewed my essays).
Jeremy is very knowledgable, professional education coach who has mastered his field of child tutoring. Aside from being a fine math tutor, he is also helping our child with organization skills. Even though he is new to us, I can say that he is dedicated and dependable. There are no screaming matches in the house regarding her math work and she has started enjoying math which is a big plus. I would highly recommend Jeremy without any reservations. Regarding his fees; you may find a range of tuition fees on thumbtack but essentially you get what you pay for. Having a professional business myself I can tell you that he is certainly worth your child's education and self esteem Dr. K
Tutoring was very professional and went the extra mile- providing homework and tailored study techniques. I would absolutely recommend and hire again.
Jim tutors my son for the SAT's. He is extremely professional, patient, timely and entertaining. His true talent shows in his ability to access the situation and move forward using traditional and non traditional methods to achieve success.
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.
I would like to highly recommend Dr. Howard Siegerman as a tutor of both math and chemistry. He tutored by son Tom when he was taking a difficult series of math courses in middle school and high school. With his encouragement and patience he was able to rebuild Tom's confidence. With this renewed confidence and additional practice, Tom's grades improved dramatically. Dr. Siegerman also mentored Tom in chemistry, providing real life experience to theoretical questions. Tom in now at New York University pursuing a degree in biochemistry.
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.
Dr. Mansur was always professional. She never let me give up when I doubted I would ever finish my dissertation process. When I didn’t think it was possible she would remind me how close we were. She would tell me I was almost there and it was possible. With her and another classmates encouragement I was able to keep trying when I began to doubt my own abilities. She was an integral part of making my educational goal become a reality. I can’t express my appreciation in words. There are no words for what I am feeling right now that I am finally Dr. Sanders.
Gail is a very kind warm hearted person. Before Gail my son wasn't doing very well and his grades were poor, he always complained about not feeling well to get out of going to school, he would always say I hate school. Since we have hired Gail my son couldn't be happier he smiles going to school he looks forward to his tutor coming every week it's completely private in my own home. My son has caught up on many missing assignment's, his teacher's have notice a big difference in him. I would Highly recommend Above Grade Level In-Home Tutoring with Gail Switsky. She is always available to answer any questions you may have and more importantly Gail will go above and beyond for your child. We are very pleased.
Hong is very conscientious and thoughtful when tutoring my son. He is good at being supportive while maintaining expectations. He has been very helpful in math, writing and organization.
She is a very talented tutor, and I will continue working with her for the long run!
Eliott has been an excellent teacher to my daughter to date. He is patient, thorough and thoughtful and she seems to be picking up the craft nicely so far.
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.
Gena has been tutoring my son after school and has been a wonderful teacher and supporter. She has a very positive attitude, is encouraging and truly cares for his wellbeing and success. With her help, not only have his grades improved, but his attitude toward homework and school have as well.
