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!
Gloria was asked to provide Spanish tutoring for two high school boys using the Vista Higher Learning Descubre curriculum. She has done a great job, both boys have gained confidence and feel much more prepared and familiar with the material.
Jeremy was a fantastic tutor! He was able to incorporate my interest in sports into every one of our tutoring sessions. Jeremy was a big influence in helping me develop better writing skills for college.
Ainna has been tutoring me in french 1-on-1 for the past 2 years and I truly look forward to her lessons. She spends time preparing for my individual needs before each lesson so our time together is very productive. In addition to the subject of the lesson I find I am always learning about other idiosyncrasies of the french language just through her casual comments. Her appreciation for the subtleties of French is impressive. Her lessons are very reasonably priced. She is not someone who sits and counts the seconds and is always lively and pleasant to be with. My progress was evident to me recently on a visit to France. I highly recommend her!!
Aron is an excellent and patient math tutor. He is very knowledgeable and was a tremendous asset to my successes with the SAT test! My SAT score increased significantly once I had 8 sessions with him. Aron did a wonderful job clearly explaining the areas I struggled with and was even able to come up with his own example problems on the spot. He made me feel comfortable and provided confidence which I took into the SAT. He is also very accommodating and flexible with scheduling. I cannot say enough good things about him.
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.
Excellent! Professional and nice! A wonderful tutoring experience.
Tutoring was very professional and went the extra mile- providing homework and tailored study techniques. I would absolutely recommend and hire again.
As part of my job in communications with the Auschwitz Institute for Peace and Reconciliation, an international non-profit organization dedicated to the prevention of genocide and other mass atrocities, I took Spanish lessons with Laura multiple times per week from January of 2016 to December of 2017. While I began this endeavor with a rudimentary understanding of Spanish, my abilities – especially with regards to my professional duties – rapidly improved. We worked together on a variety of communications products and translations (both English-Spanish and Spanish-English). Due to the nature of my work, translated items featured specialized political and diplomatic vocabularies. Over the course of our time together, we synthesized and translated a wide variety of documents including interviews with prominent actors in the field, recurring reports on efforts for the prevention of mass atrocities, reporting on events in the field, newsletters and other electronic communications, as well as a wide variety of other documents as they arose. These efforts required fast-paced work to meet tight deadlines and necessitated an understanding of concepts and vocabulary used in the field of human rights, international humanitarian law and mass atrocity prevention. The translated documents have been used for a wide variety of training initiatives for government officials around the world and by partnered entities, such as the Latin American Network for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention. In short: Laura provides a high-quality service and I would certainly recommend her to anyone (or any organization) looking for a private teacher or tutor, especially in the context of communications. She is very consistent and always came equipped with any customized materials or background research necessary to maximize the productivity of our sessions.
Martha is an excellent Spanish tutor. She works well with my 8th grade son, and she has helped him become comfortable with the language. His scores have risen thanks to her.
I'm happy that Rafiki was able to help me with my college level math. The course i was taking was for fundamental math reasoning. His very professional and patient. I'll definitely recommend him to others. Keep up the great work!
As a busy professional looking to add another skill to my resume, I really appreciate Beatrice's flexibility with scheduling and willingness to design personalized lessons that match my needs. She's a compassionate and patient teacher who makes learning a new language fun and less intimidating. The cost for her tutoring services are also extremely reasonable. I highly recommend Beatrice!
Gena has been tutoring my son after school and has been a wonderful teacher and supporter. She has a very positive attitude, is encouraging and truly cares for his wellbeing and success. With her help, not only have his grades improved, but his attitude toward homework and school have as well.
James was the perfect fit for our teenager, for both ACT tutoring and college application/essay coaching. Not only did the ACT scores in question jump 5 points to a high score, but he had a pragmatic and helpful approach to the college process that was very well received. He had a positive outlook and cultivated confidence in our son, who had been a little nervous about the application process. James came to our house and was always polite, professional and on time. So far we've had all positive decisions from colleges and are so grateful!
Luanna is an excellent teacher who quickly understands the need sof the student, adapts the lesson plan to what she sees is needed and brings a lot of creativity and flexibility to making it happen. Into third month of Portuguese classes now and learning faster than I expected.
