I wish we would've started with Arbor Tutors in the beginning. I've been very bad at math my entire life. I flunked algebra three times before I called Arbor Tutors. They have many very highly trained tutors at a very low price.
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.
Kamil is a wonderful GRE tutor! He has helped me prepare for the quantitative portion for the GRE. Kamil is willing to answer all questions and is helping me learn math skills as well as some useful tips for the GRE exam. I am confident that my score will improve significantly with Kamil's help!
Great time with Sasha learning pre algebra, I know it doesn't make sense, but she is really great at making math much more clear. She helped me achieve a very good score on my CUNY entrance exams.
My son has already benefited significantly working with his new math tutor. Sam has been very knowledgable, flexible, responsive, and patient. We look forward to our ongoing work with her!
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.
My 4-year-old daughter has been taking piano lessons with Dillon for several months. He is devoted to making sure that my daughter is engaged in her lessons and learns both technique and theory. Even before working with us, Dillon recommended the right type of keyboard and piano workbook to purchase. He is very patient and dedicates a great amount of effort to instructing our daughter (and two of her 4-year-old friends). He is firm and keeps her focused (but not too firm that he intimidates her). Finally this week, my daughter went to her room and practiced by herself and is now able to play "Old MacDonald". Yay for Dillon!
Lenore has been helping me hone my math skills in order to pass a placement exam. I feel lucky to have found her on Thumbtack. She is knowledgeable and patient. She clearly cares about my success and goes out of her way to accommodate my needs as well as my schedule. I intend to continue working with her in order to pass both the Elementary and College Algebra portions of the test so that I can complete my associates degree and move onto the University for my four year degree. I can honestly and emphatically recommend Lenore as a teacher, tutor and advocate! Sent from my iPhone
Kim has been so wonderful helping my son with algebra 2. She is very patient and so flexible. She explains things in a way my son understands. I highly recommend kim!!
Justin really helped me focus in on the areas that were major hurdles for me in math. I had always felt like I couldn't overcome my mental blocks in Algebra because it didn't come naturally to me and he gave me the confidence to look at the problems in a different light. I am so thankful I was able to find him!
Katya is a great tutor who has ways that help me remember vocabulary words for the SAT test very easily, and she is very clear with math concepts that I may be struggling with, or don't understand entirely. She keeps in touch with me at all times, and I am never afraid to ask her any questions. Ever since she has started tutoring me, I always feel confident that I am in good hands, and that I will ace the SAT!
Romina is very professional, patient, and effective. She is thorough and creative in explaining difficult concepts and is able to make the content interesting and tangible. As a native speaker she has an extreme knowledge of the Spanish language and a proficient command of its grammar and vocabulary. She listens to your needs and tailors the session to meet your goals. Romina arrives prepared and takes control of the lesson while ensuring a positive and productive experience. She's patient and has great sense of humor. She's truly a phenomenal teacher!
Michael is prompt (in fact arrives early), thoughtful and prepared. My son has different learning needs as he is consider "gifted" and Michael is able to handle him with ease. He is very professional and asks ahead if there are extra topics to focus on and tries to lesson-plan for my son. I highly recommend Michael because he respects every student and their different abilities. In fact, I am thinking of hiring him over the summer for some of my son's school mates who are in General Ed to give them the same opportunity as my son.
He helped my son to understand math and to improve his grades. Very patient
Erik has a way of evaluating what needs to be accomplished and has the knowledge and skill in order to execute it. He has terrific interpersonal skill making me feel as though I am helpless after 24 years of not doing any algebra whatsoever. I give Erik 5 stars, if you need a tutor, he's the man!
Sara is a very good tutor. She had patience and explained 4 th grade math to my son. Would highly recommend her. Thank you for all your help
He is awesome teacher
I really enjoy my lessons with Martha. She is very helpful and its great that she has been able to tailor our lessons to my specific needs and goals for bettering my grasp of Spanish. It is really clear that she is a great teacher who cares for her students. I would definitely recommend her to others who want to improve their skills.
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.
Very efficient..my son was happy and comfortable with him..He made him understand various concepts in algebra and he was good with dealing with questions...he made it easy for my son..we r definitely hiring him for summer tutoring..
Dan is a great teacher. I've always been good at math but I hate Geometry and it was affecting my grade average. I was having a really hard time understanding the lessons. Dan helped me bring my grades up and now I actually enjoy Geometry. Dan has a way of making Geometry look easy. I would definitely recommend Dan as a math tutor.
