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!
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.
I've studied Precalculus and Calculus with Sasha. She has a deep understanding of the subjects and clearly, and patiently, articulates the steps to solving problems. She challenges me to solve the problem on my own, only dropping hints, or showing the solution, when I'm truly stuck. She does not waste time and is always encouraging me to try more problems. Administratively, she is responsible and flexible vis-a-vis the time and place of tutoring sessions. She is a valuable asset and a bargain.
Kamil is an excellent tutor. We found Kamil through this website in our efforts to find a tutor for the SAT preparation. Our focus was on the Math portion of SAT. Kamil is a real professional and has the ability to adapt his teaching to the student. What I mean specifically is that while reviewing concepts and problems he was very flexible in providing multiple explanations to solving problems. I really appreciated the manner in which he was able to connect with my 17 year-old daughter and in my conversations with her she felt confident in his instruction and the value he added. She has found that his tutoring for the SAT has been helpful in her schoolwork as well. I would strongly recommend you reach out to Kamil if you or your child are looking for tutoring that will provide significant help in achieving higher scores. I would absolutely use Kamil again if I were in the market for a tutor for my child.
Aron is very knowledgeable about ACT/SAT math prep. He explained everything very well, and was also very easy to work with in setting up the appointment.
James has been working with our son on math and on SAT prep for about 9 months. Son's grades have improved and his confidence is greatly improved. James is really able to connect with my son, who in turn steps up to meet the challenge..
Ethan helped me raise my score for the SAT in two weeks. Based on my past SATs and practice tests, he developed a work plan that showed me which areas I needed to work on. His organization and practice materials helped me successfully raise my score. He is very kind and really helped relieve stress about the SAT as well as the entire college application process. His rates are also very reasonable when you take into consideration the amount of time he spends formulating a study plan, correcting homework and answering questions by email outside of the tutoring time. I very much recommend Ethan!
Dr Fikar was of invaluable assistance to my daughter and improved her overall score by almost 100 points in only 6 weeks of tutoring. His most signigicant impact was in improving her confidence in approaching difficult math problems. Dr Fikar was so encouraging and gave her so much inside knowledge about the test and the college application process generally. He really made her feel like she had a dedicated, personal professional coach With her throughout the whole fall of senior year. He transformed what was a scary overwhelming process into something of a game that she was inspired to master and win. In addition, I recall her remarking in surprise after only her second tutoring session that it would also help her do better in her AP Calculus course at school, as Dr Fikar was better at explaining math than her own teacher. We are so happy to have found Dr Fikar and plan to enlist his services for our two younger daughters in the coming years. We enthusiastically give him the highest possible rating!
Mr. Parez was my tutor in high school for about a year to help me prepare for the SAT exam. The tutoring sessions were very convenient because they were done over Skype. Having the tutoring sessions done over Skype cut out time/money that would have been put into travel. Mr. Parez was always accommodating when it came to scheduling my tutoring sessions around my busy schedule. Mr. Parez had me take a preliminary SAT exam to see the areas of the exam I excelled in and which areas I struggled with. He helped me improve significantly in the areas I struggled in through various personalized lessons and homework assignments. Mr. Parez helped me to raise my score significantly. I believe that achieving a higher score on the SAT exam made me a stronger College applicant and helped me to get into 7 out of 7 Colleges that I applied to, including my top choice, of which I am now in attendance. I highly recommend Mr. Parez for any of you tutoring needs.
I can not recommend RSK tutoring enough because of the overall quality of the service being provided. An intelligent tutor who is also punctual, respectful and kind is just what I needed to do well on my college entrance exams.
It is so hard to find a quality SAT tutor but Nick is it! He was absolutely fantastic! My son needed help on the reading section and Nick got right to work by targeting his weakest areas. Over 4 or 5 months, my son's confidence and scores skyrocketed. Wow!!
Blakely is an excellent tutor and we'd highly recommend using her as an SAT tutor! She provides keen insight and strategy for taking the test and has helped boost our daughter's scores significantly.
Dr. V has been so helpful in his tutoring. He has impressive credentials and a passion for French. We appreciate all he has done.
Hallie just began tutoring my 22 year old son in college-level chemistry. They established a good connection and he feels she can help him to get through the year successfully.
I highly recommend Horace, he is an amazing tutor! Horace helped me improve my score from a 570 to a 710 after just a couple of weeks of tutoring sessions! He is very patient and strategic in his approach. He made sure to understand my testing strengths and weaknesses and tailored his approach to meet my needs. He was also very accessible and invested in my success - he spent several hours sitting through practice exams with me (via virtual sessions) so he could get a real sense of where I needed to improve and spent several hours reviewing both incorrect answers as well as correct answers that I could be answering more quickly or more efficiently. I can honestly say I would not have scored a 700+ score without Horace in my corner.
He is awesome teacher
Both my son and I had an amazing experience with Katya! She tailored her teaching techniques to make the material more engaging and made my son excited about learning and tracking his improvement after each lesson. Besides providing guidance and helping with practice tests she provided invaluable test taking and memory retention tips. She was very responsive and accommodating, willing to work with our schedules to make sure my son had enough hours of practice before his exam. I highly recommend Katya to anyone looking for SAT tutoring as she is worth every penny.
Justin was an extremely helpful SAT tutor. He took into account the concerns I had in specific areas of the SAT and designed the lessons so I could improve not just in those sections, but also in the test as a whole. I was able to make the most of each session, and Justin answered all of my questions along the way. He made himself accessible throughout the week to answer messages and emails and I could not be more appreciative of him taking the time to do so. The tips and tricks I learned from him significantly boosted my confidence heading into the test day, and I was very pleased with my results.
Erik was extremely helpful to my son. My son is not the disrespectful type but does not always take well to teachers who he thinks cannot teach well. He had nothing but positives to say about Erik. He enjoyed being tutored by him, and felt he got a lot from the sessions. And yes, he did very well on the SAT, finishing in the top 1%. Thank you Erik.
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.
I’ve taken my SATs a couple of times and although I am not a bad student, I just felt that I could have done better, I knew it inside, but just could not find where it was. I got the Getting Into The Ivys tutoring program and worked with a Chelsea tutor. What I really like about my tutor is that she’s a qualified teacher and is professional and knows how to actually teach concepts properly. I really did not want to take any chances. Going to university is very important to me and my family. Susan my tutor developed a special study plan just for me, which helped me focus on my key weaknesses, without feeling de-motivated, in-fact I was so enthused by her, I actually looked forward to all my sessions. She is a brilliant tutor and I am so very grateful. I was able to increase my composite core by 100. I am very pleased.
