My son's teacher recommended Arbor Tutors and we are very thankful. I'm very impressed with the quality and the education of the tutors. It's like everyone here has an Ivy League education.
We initially hired Jeremy to help my daughter prepare for the ACT's. (She has an auditory processing disorder which can make it difficult for her to grasp certain concepts and Jeremy was recommended as someone who had experience in effectively teaching kids who had similar issues) Last spring, months before we were to officially begin the ACT prep, he stepped in to rescue her from a math class that she was on track to fail. He not only helped reteach her the material in a way she could understand but also liaised with her teacher and advisor to help ensure her success in the class. He has also been very accommodating with scheduling the time-consuming ACT prep sessions and instills my daughter with confidence to tackle the subjects that are particularly difficult for her.
Sasha is the greatest math tutor I could have asked for. I had no confidence in my GRE math ability before working with Sasha, and a few weeks later, now two days before my test, I know that there's no problem I can't handle. That's all thanks to Sasha.
Jim tutors my son for the SAT's. He is extremely professional, patient, timely and entertaining. His true talent shows in his ability to access the situation and move forward using traditional and non traditional methods to achieve success.
Aron was preparing me for SAT and helping me in my college Algebra class. Thanks to him I did well on both tests. He is a knowledgeable and patient tutor who is capable to teach math on any level. He is much better than any tutors I had in the past. Definitely would recommend him.
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.
Excellent! Professional and nice! A wonderful tutoring experience.
I first contacted Charles after sitting for my GMAT exam and being disappointed with my score. I thought I could do much better and after reading reviews of his tutoring work, I decided he would be best to help me improve my score. I was hoping Charles could show me where I was struggling because I felt I had a good handle on the material before each exam before. I purchased multiple GMAT tools from all the top courses, but apparently, I kept missing something. During my first session with Charles, he immediately knew how to solve each question efficiently, showing me multiple ways to arrive at the same answer. He also taught me mental math skills that saved me precious time in the difficult quant section. Charles was sincere in letting me know the amount of time and effort needed to score above 700. He planned out our sessions accordingly, making sure I mastered each topic before moving on. I appreciated how Charles set up our classes with short drill sets to test the concepts he taught me and if I continued to struggle with them, we would review until my understanding was concrete. After working with Charles three times a week for two months, I saw a 150 point increase in my official GMAT score. I would recommend Charles to anyone who plans on taking the GMAT or any other standardized exam.
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.
Five months ago, I felt that my five year old should have been further along with reading so I hired Sandy. With Sandy's 26 years of teaching experience, she provides a logical, methodical approach to teaching a child how to read. She also understands that kids, just like adults, can vary from day to day in their mood to learn and perform. She knows how to adjust to my daughter's mood to get the most out of the teaching session. Fast forward five months, I just got out of a parent teacher conference and my daughter has been assessed to be at the top reading level in her class. I give all of the credit to Sandy's way of teaching.
Gail is awesome, and the tutors are excellent.
I first reached out to Spencer to prep me for a job interview. This involved updating my cover letter and preparing/rehearsing my interview questions and answers. With Spencer’s tutoring, I felt much more confident and ready for the interview. While going through the final stages of the interview process, the hiring company tasked me to prepare a custom presentation. Spencer’s thoughtful questions, creativity and attentiveness helped me nail this final task and I landed the job! I still work with Spencer on any speeches and business presentations I have to give. He takes the time to understand my point of view on the subject in order to help craft the right material and tone. Throughout each project, Spencer is always helping me improve my articulation and vocabulary. This has made a tremendous difference in both my professional and personal life! Overall, Spencer is an excellent teacher and public speaker.
Hong is very conscientious and thoughtful when tutoring my son. He is good at being supportive while maintaining expectations. He has been very helpful in math, writing and organization.
I know a lot of people have there friends and family get on here and give them 5 stars and good ratings to help there business. But this time that is not the case. I dont know Akeel from a hole in the wall. In fact I found him on line. I think he lives in New York and I live in Georgia. I say all that to say. Akeel was wonderful,and Very professional and his prices was reasonable, and he was willing to work with you. I hired Akeel to tutor my son who is a sophomore in college in Calculus & Physics and he was very good with my son. And my son really enjoyed working with him. So thank you Akeel for everything. And I would definitely hire you again. Mr. Jackson
Dan is an absolutely fantastic tutor. He's a super knowledgeable, smart, easy-to-work-with tutor who really helped my daughter improve substantially on the ACT. I've used other tutors in the past for academic support for her and she always complained about having to go to lessons, but never so with Dan - she actually looked forward to seeing him each week. I was very impressed and would highly recommend him to anyone! Major thumbs up, both for his skills with students and his ability to achieve top scores on high-stakes tests like the ACT.
Thomas was one of the best tutors I have ever had. After trying a few other SAT tutors, I decided to stick with him. Thomas found different ways to help me understand specific topics and worked with me when I needed extra help. He's constantly researching new tutroing methods and implements them into his sessions. With his help, I was able to increase my SAT score by around 200 points. My parents even signed my sister up for tutoring with Thomas because they saw what an amazing tutor he was. After my SAT process was done, Thomas walked me through the college process and helped me with my essays. Because of him, I am going to college with a full scholarship and I will graduate debt free. Thomas is an amazing tutor and an amazing person. He builds connections with his students and their families that extend outside of the academic sphere. I could not be more grateful to Thomas for all that he has done for me and my family.
Excellent reading/math tutor. Experienced and engaging. My daughter really enjoyed working with Michelle.
Great tutor! I hired him for SAT preparation, and I could not have made a better choice. My score improved greatly! He was very helpful for Math, in particular.
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.
Very professional and my kid is learning fast
Jamie is so patient and kind with my 9 year old. My son has behavioral issues which has been a problem with tutors in the past, but Jamie is a dream. He absolutely loves working with her and he is making such progress! She really knows her stuff, is always punctual and makes it clear that she cares. I cannot recommend her enough.
