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!

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.

We were having difficulty finding the right tutor for our son until we found Nick. His professionalism and knowledge are second to none. He went above and beyond for our son and made sure he learned essential SAT topics. He even rearranged his schedule to come on Saturday mornings. My son ended up scoring 230 points higher. Truly a wonderful tutor!

Talk about a confidence boosting environment provided to your child, I cannot say enough about this test prep service. The professional nature of the tutor, and his understanding of the needs of your child is just impeccable. My son is so much happier about his studying and to see that is a joy. Thank you so much, he is actually looking forward to his SATs.

My son who is in college was struggling in linear algebra which is an advanced math class. The tutor from Ivy League Tutors was professional and demonstrated true dedication in helping my son to pass a stay in his college program. The owner consistently sent updates and summaries of the tutoring sessions. I highly recommend this company.

Allen has been tutoring my 13 year old son, who is now in 7th grade and attends East Side Middle School, in math since Dec 2013. Allen initially came to our home to tutor, but in order to work with my son’s changing schedule, he devised a way to tutor him via Skype. This continues to work out great. My son’s average was raised approx 7-10 points as a result of Allen’s tutoring and my son’s hard work. He helped my son’s confidence in Math and test taking and gave him advice regarding study tips and classwork. We are all happy with Allen, and look forward to continuing with him!"

I was searching for a teacher who would help me better my English since it is my second language, as well as to help me prepare for the ACT and college courses. Mainly we spend our sessions covering school assignments, otherwise David is always prepared to do other work, such as ACT prep. It has been a little over two months since I have been working with David, and the improvements are definitely noticeable. I meet up with him once a week. He tutors my 14 year'old brother and me. David is the most punctual, motivated and enthusiastic tutors I have had a in a long time.

I had one lesson focused on content review for the SAT Subject Test in World History. Gregory provided a practice test and went through the answers, clarifying any questions I had. He also provided some resources on specific portions of review for me to study on my own. I found the lesson helpful and effective, and would recommend Lico Tutoring Services .

I contacted Robert after being impressed by his tutoring philosophy. Having only a few months of being tutored by him, the end result was getting to the 98th percentile from the 93 percentile for me. Robert is one of the most patient tutors I have ever had (I have received tutoring since 8th grade), and he explains everything clearly. Follow his logic and do not be afraid to ask any questions about anything. He is an expert on the whole organization of test prep, and he will provide you with the most useful websites for additional test prep. In addition, he is knowledgeable about other subjects as well, which is why I continue to seek his help with my issues in college such as time management and study skills. While working with Robert on the ACT we spoke about other areas of my education as well as my college plans. I came to realize that Robert took a sincere interest in my overall well-being, and consistently made suggestions that invaluable to me on many fronts. Within a few weeks I began to call upon him to help me with my educational plan and college applications. Together, we developed strategies to strengthen my application and Robert helped me to develop my college essays. We went through the trials and tribulations of the college application process, and every step of the way Robert was there to help guide me. Even today, as a freshman at an Ivy League university Robert was there to help me with course selection in addition to many of the challenges an incoming student faces on a college campus. One thing that struck me the most is his ability to understand people, especially how one person responds to different situations. This is important because he is able to understand what is exactly preventing someone from achieving the best of their ability. For example, there was a specific component that I was struggling with my coursework, and he helped me overcome that problem after identifying a specific study limitation that I did not know I had. Over time, he has become a mentor for me. Truly you will be very lucky to have Robert as a tutor because he goes above and beyond for you, and young adults need someone to guide them through difficult times.

Clark helped me find a tutor for my son who was struggling with math and also needed help developing his studying skills. The process was very easy and when I had questions someone was always available to answer them. I have worked with tutoring centers in the past and have found that they lack in consistency, especially as it relates to their involvement (or lack of) after you sign on with a tutor. At Clark, they are involved throughout the whole process. They help with scheduling and also send me updates on what happened during my son's sessions. I would definitely use them again in the future.
