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!

Sara is a phenomenal tutor whom I highly recommend. I recently started a new legal job that requires me to read, write, and converse in Spanish at a professional level even though I have not studied Spanish in about 7 years. I chose Sara because I admired her dedication to studying languages. Because I wanted to focus on conversation, I liked that she seemed friendly and approachable. Even from her initial emails, I could tell that I would really like working with her. She and I quickly set up an initial lesson to gauge my abilities. She walked me through a few grammar and vocabulary exercises that reinforced the material I knew and quickly pinpointed material with which I needed help. Moreover, Sara always asked my input: what was I interested in learning? Are there things that I wanted to focus on more than others? Sara quickly surpassed my expectations with a complete lesson plan, structure, and schedule that was tailored to my level of Spanish and the areas I needed to work on. Before every class, Sara sent me a lesson plan that included vocabulary, assignments, and conversation topics for our next session. I appreciated having all of the materials at my fingertips. We conducted our lessons via Skype. It was helpful to be able to converse real-time with Sara via video while she could write me notes on vocabulary or grammar structure using Skype's instant messaging function. Sara asked me to send her materials that were relevant to my area of focus (reports and articles) so that she could structure our conversations around topics that would be immediately transferrable to my day-to-day work. Sara made sure that every lesson included themes and vocabulary that would be helpful in my work with my clients. She often offered insight from her own experiences and background that helped me learn about the different cultures in Latin America, knowledge that was invaluable when I was speaking with partners in the region. She is a born teacher; she knows how to make her lessons interesting and relevant to each student. Sara also went out of her way to include fun and useful tidbits and colloquialisms from the different countries I was working in at the time. I was able to impress partners on the ground with informal dialogue and a few words of slang, which gave me incredible confidence when speaking with them. Sara was also fantastic about following up with additional vocabulary or things of interest after our lessons. I always got an email from her after the lesson with other things or words that she thought I would find useful. Lastly, I really appreciated how kind and flexible of a teacher Sara is. I am at times a horrendous student: I never did my homework, practiced infrequently, and often had to rearrange our schedule. Sara never chided me for not completing my assignments but always made sure to remind me to do them. When I did manage to get something to her, she gave incredibly detailed feedback. She was always 100% friendly and bubbly despite our 8 am sessions, even when I felt super guilty about not having an assignment in on time. She was always encouraging and supportive. For someone like me who finds it hard to commit to lessons and often finds excuses to not attend, it made the world of difference that I always enjoy my lessons with Sara. After our initial sessions were over, I asked her to continue. As I am sure you will soon discover, Sara is an incredibly smart, organized, and gifted teacher. Thanks to her, my ability to speak Spanish has increased exponentially over the last few months. I really cannot thank her enough for how much her lessons have helped as I navigated learning Spanish while also starting a new job and moving to a new city. You will not go wrong with her as a tutor. I 100% recommend her and only worry that if she gets too popular I won't be able to see her as often as I would like.

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 started working with Kamil late in my college process. Many tutors doubted that I had enough time to prep and were only willing to work with me as a sort of "second hand client". With only two months left before my last possibly act during my senior year, Kamil and I worked day and night to achieve my goal score. Often meeting before and running after midnight only to see each other at six the next day, Kamil and I turned my test scores around to help me get into Cornell University. Kamil is kind, conscientious and committed. For him, standardized testing tutoring is a calling. He is his own brand.

I hired Beatrice a few weeks ago for my daughter. She loves her. She is punctual and is very good with teaching Sophia what she needs for Spanish. Sophia is very comfortable with her and loves her teaching style. We will be keeping her on as her tutor. She was a great find. I highly recommend her.

John's the best tutor I've ever had so far. He's very patient and able to translate the material so you can better understand the subject. If you really take the time to try and learn as much as you can, you are guaranteed results with his guidance. All in all, he's a respectable man and worth the money and time. I would highly recommend him to anyone friend or stranger and definitely going to keep in touch if I need help in the future.

Charles is an excellent tutor! He was professional, helpful, and radically improved my math score for the GRE. If I had to take the test again, I would absolutely hire Charles again (but thankfully, I don't, because he helped me so much the first time around!). If you're looking for a tutor to help you achieve real results, you've found him.

I had taken French for many years, at the Alliance Française and with 2 private tutors from the Alliance. Ainna is better than both of them. Both of the private tutors didn't do anything except talk to me in French. For that they charged $80 an hour. Ainna charges less, and we do exercises that help me really learn. The Alliance classes were good, but they didn't help at all with my accent. And I didn't get a lot of talking time, even in a small class. I highly recommend Ainna!

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.

We all know when it comes to the SAT’s there is guaranteed to be a lot of stress. As a sixteen year old high school student going through the SAT process, I can vouch for this. My anxiety began months ago. I admired people who had started their SAT prep a year before, while envying students who were just naturally good test takers, scoring 2000 and up; however, when you don’t fit into either of those categories you start wondering what now? At that point an SAT tutor seemed like a good idea. Enter Danny Ahn. The first time I met Danny, I was unsure what to expect. He understood my confusion and began to structure a plan of action. He soon established the level I was at in English and Math, and then focused in. After a few sessions I began to understand the kind of approach required of me. I have worked with Danny Ahn weekly since around late October or early November, 2013 and our work is ongoing. It is now Feb. 17, 2014. I have found Danny to be a good communicator and listener. He is dedicated, nurturing, focused, and hardworking, going beyond his allotted time with me to help me achieve my goals. He genuinely cares about my mental well being as well as my academic standing. He is readily available on the phone and via text, and has proven to be accommodating with regards to scheduling. I believe that Danny is pushing me in the right direction and I am feeling increasingly more confident with regards to the dreaded upcoming SAT’s. Danny has an excellent understanding of the SAT requirements and I feel that with his continued guidance I can achieve my goals.

Sandy is a great tutor. The moment I walked into her working space we felt (my family & I) welcomed by Sandy with a great warm smile. I automatically felt comfortable with her, as she seemed very caring and eager to help. I told her that my son needed a lot of help with reading and she told me not worry and that he will have a great learning experience. She has been very understanding of my son needs. She even reach out to his teacher in school to be on track with his needs. Sandy has also manage to fit his classes at convenient times and is always reachable by phone. I strongly recommend Sandy, she truly care about transforming my son into a confident and fluent reader. I am very happy and can thanks her enough.

I've worked with many tutors over the years and Zoe is in a class of her own. She comes prepared with relevant lesson plans and sends helpful notes after each of session. She is simultaneously intentional and adaptable. Her approach is creative, encouraging and goal oriented. Of all of the tutors I've worked with, I've made the most progress with Zoe. She is a star!

AWESOME TUTOR. I had a very small window before taking my TASC exam. His ability to explain things in a matter that makes sense to all was KEY to my success. I scored a overall score of 2980 on my first try. Thank you Michael, I can now say I've finally completed one of my goals and it's all thanks to you.

I met with Nick over the weekend for two hours. At first I wanted to start immediately with Ch. 9 which is what I am currently learning. Nick suggested started with the basics in the beginning of the book to make sure that I had a strong grasp on the core concepts. I have to say...I am SO happy we did that. I feel more comfortable in general and understood concepts almost immediately when he explained them to me. When I asked questions and did not understand a concept from the first explanation then he went into the problem from a different point of view. It was incredibly helpful. I will now be meeting with him multiple times per week until the end of the semester. He is worth every penny and more, couldn't recommend another tutor with the same confidence I would recommend Nick

My daughter always seemed to have panic attacks leading up to the SAT tests. I was desperate to find a way for her to be comfortable specially as SATs are coming up. All I can say is after a few weeks with the tutors at Chelsea, my daughter’s confidence level has gone through the roof. Now if that’s not progress, I don’t know what is. Thank you Chelsea International.

Ken Cyprus was my math tutor from eighth grade to senior year of high school. While all other subjects came easily to me, math was a difficult subject for me, and it was holding me back from having the high GPA I could have. With Ken's tutoring, I was always the highest performing student in my math class and never worried about my GPA being impacted by math again. Throughout the years, certain math teaching styles wouldn't work for me, and I struggled with the material, but Ken never let me give up. He worked not only on my math aptitude but also my confidence and I became a more engaged math student. Ken would give me test problems, help me study, and create material catered to my specific weaknesses so that by the time a test came, I could do it on my own. He was also able to help me score higher than I ever thought I could on the SAT. Now, as I go into my senior year of Barnard College and am getting ready to graduate with both a degree from an Ivy League institution and that of an elite liberal arts college, I look back with immense gratitude for Ken. I couldn't have gotten here without him.
