I've been out of school for a couple years and needed to prepare again to take GMAT. Couldn't be happier when I found Arbor Tutors. Superb support with excellent tutors. I can't recommend them enough!

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 have worked with other tutors in the past, and Kamil has outshined them all. I loved that Kamil already had a course designed for me, along with all the materials needed - taking the guesswork out of how to prepare. Kamil is dedicated and flexible, making it super easy work together. Kamil's enthusiasm and mastery of the GRE gives you the confidence and skills needed for test day, as well as making it fun (!) in the process. For anyone serious about improving their GRE score, I highly recommend working with Kamil!

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.

I studied with James for my SATs. He has a very unique way of approaching the exam that my prior tutors did not offer. For example, he taught me how to analyze questions based on the way they are written. This was a great skill to have and made me much more confident about going into the test room.

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.

The job was to tutor my daughter in Math who at the time was struggling. She was failing all her test and her teacher tried as did I. When Horace came in he was so patient and understanding, they fell into a very nice rhythm. When she didn't understand the way he was explaining he would find other ways until she got it and he never gave up or got frustrated. She started to pass her class exams and the best was passing her Math and ELA exams . Horace was amazing and I started recommending him to any and everyone. He made such a difference and it helped with my daughters confidence . I highly recommend him for your company

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.

Katya is a great tutor! She worked with me herself twice a week and also provided support between sessions. She quickly identified my knowledge gaps and my “most limiting factor” which was speed and strategy. My SAT Score went up from 1200 to 1400! WooHoo!

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!

You know it’s a nightmare out there, looking for the right fit for your kids when you are searching for test prep tutors. I have twins going into the SATs and there are just so many bad teachers out there. I really had to ask Chelsea International a lot of questions when I came across them. I have to say, they blew me away. Not just with their professional nature, but also with their level of expertise, care, and true understanding of what it takes to bring out your child’s fullest potential. I would recommend this tutoring service to anyone. The kids have been working with them now for the last few months, and the difference in their work is amazing. I am really looking forward to seeing their scores after their SAT tests.

Jared is extremely patient in the learning process. I never feel embarrassed for not knowing the right answers, and I am more comfortable asking questions with him than with any other tutor I've had. My grades have improved a lot, and I feel more confident in class. He is also really flexible with his schedule.
