I used Arbor Tutors for math and English tutoring for both the GMAT and the GRE (I didn't know what I wanted to do for grad school). I ended up in the top 10% for the GRE and 720 on the GMAT. My tutor was amazing!!! I was so happy my boyfriend hired Arbor for Spanish tutoring. Super happy!
Jeremy has helped me extensively in both math and english. Not only has he helped me improve my grades but he has helped me get ahead of my classmates. Currently Jeremy is helping to prepare me for the ACT and I am prepping for an excellent score! Lastly, Jeremy makes himself available to help me at any time, including outside our sessions.
It is hard to find a good English teacher, but James is excellent. He knows the elements of good writing and can present abstract topics really well. James never gives away answers. He directs by asking insightful questions so you learn to become critical thinkers. James has taught all my three kids, and I cant be more pleased with their results. If you are looking for a tutor, think no more. Hire James! He is the best! We just got notice that our youngest got accepted to Cornell!
She is so kind and easy to talk to. Plus, She has a lot of know-hows for teaching English and she gave me some helpful information. I am sure that she helps us to improve your English skills.
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.
I went through Ray for an English tutor for my daughter. Both my experience dealing with Ray to assign a tutor specific in English-background in communications, IB and AP essay writing-as well as my daughter's experience with the tutor were outstanding. I wouldn't hesitate to work with this team again. Thank you, Ray!
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.
Kate did a great job of assessing my English skill level and identifying the parts that I need to work on. She explained things clearly and provided me with many examples and suggestions to improve my English. I look forward to working with her again soon!
I’d like to validate Connor’s excellent method of teaching English. He is able to work with different types of resources which are interesting and relevant. He can explain a subject in a clear, straightforward manner when a non native English speaker (like me) struggle to use expressions from everyday life; not only expressions but also other more advanced subjects of grammar as well. Connor’s classes are dynamic, informative, and you always end up learning something. I recommend Connor as an English teacher for everybody, no matter the level of English; he will guide you all the way until you get it right.

I worked with one of the tutors for a graduate statistics course last semester. I was so pleased with the results I continue to use them for my second graduate Stats course this semester. The tutor is very knowledgeable & using this service boosts my confidence for the course.
Daniel's tutoring experience and knowledge of the material was key to our daughters acceptance to Bergen County Technical HS. Daniel always arrived on time for each lesson and always came prepared. We were also happy that he gave homework assignments to work on for the next lesson. Our overall experience was great. We will definitely contact Daniel again.
Michael is a very experienced teacher. We are developing a study plan for my teenage Chinese stepdaughter to master the English language. He spends hours preparing material for sessions with students that he tutors. He is patient and he understands the needs of non-English speaking Asian immigrants. He is truly a gentleman and shows great respect when he communicates with others, no matter what their age, race or nationality. Thank you, Michael, for all that you do.
I've collaborated with Spencer on screenplays, essays, and other projects. He is an excellent creative partner. Spencer is a talented writer. He has a unique command of the English language. He is also a great communicator.
On my own experience this teacher was totally best of all my English teachers! I promise you to improve your English with Dara will be fast and fun! Good luck all of you!
We are thrilled with our results with Above Grade Level Tutoring! Ivan our tutor is patient, knowledgeable and thorough! My daughter is finally grasping Calculus! Gail has been fabulous! We are so lucky we found her and Ivan! I highly recommend their services.
Wonderful, professional, tutor. She brings warmth and kindness to her teaching. My daughter loves her tutoring sessions.
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.
I highly recommend Jacquelyn Poarch. She has been an excellent and effective German tutor for my son and has made a real impact in his proficiency in the language. She is knowledgeable, friendly, professional, and a pleasure to know and work with.
Luka worked with my son throughout his freshman year at NYU. We have worked with tutors previously and Luka has by far, been the most inspiring and dependable teacher/tutor that we have had the fortune of working with. My son, who is in the Pre Med/Health undergrad program will continue to work with Luka throughout his academic career. Our son's GPA went from a GPA of 3.0 to 3.8.~ we highly recommend Luka.
Being an international student in Boston I had quite a few difficulties with English, and so I have reached Lauren to help me out with writing and editing. Lauren is an extraordinary academic writer who writes artistically and passionately on subjects that matter. Most importantly, as a tutor she creates a warm, comfortable and patient environment and has helped me tremendously as a professional with writing and editing applications and different essays. She is an exceptional teacher and person and I would whole-heartedly recommend working with her.
