He is great with my daughter! 5th grade student.
Jennifer was extremely creative in getting all my experience, education, and skills on a great looking resume. It was quick and painless. She was great.
I could not seem to score well on the ACT. I ended up with Arbor Tutors and had a tutor who met me every week for 8 weeks and when I took the test and got an excellent score (33). Worth every cent.
Excellent tutor. Very accommodating.
Nema really really helped me a lot. I ended up passing the course with the grade I wanted (B). He was able to identify my weakness (algebra) and we worked to improve it, he would give me problems related to my weakness so that I would do good on the main problems which were calc related. Nema was very patient with me, knowing that my mother tongue is not english, he would find easy ways to explain the word problems which were one of my main difficulties too. He also taught me shortcuts to solve some problems such as U substitution. He really knows how to teach/tutor and he cares about the student, Nema made sure I understood the topics during our sessions and if not he would give homework so I could practice more. His availability is 5 stars, he was available to help during texts and calls whenever he could. There would be breaks during our sessions which help me to get more focused, Nema has good sense of humor and knows how to keep a person calm and confident, I've got into many situations where I was very nervous or insecure about an exam/quiz and he got me very calm, secure and confident about myself in math. I don't know how to thank him about his help but if I need help in another math related course I'll definitely ask him for help.
Paul Gruber is a wealth of knowledge and insight about the college application process and SAT / ACT testing process. He's patient with his students, has a fun personality which brings a calm manner to what can be a stressful time for students and parents. I highly recommend him for your tutoring and college prep needs.
Michael did an excellent job of evaluating my daughter's needs and referred us to good tutors, including himself. My daughter is receiving the help she so needs.
My son's tutor has worked with him for more than a year transitioning from elementary school to middle school. The tutor showed great flexibility in subject areas and was able to help in virtually any school subject including English, science, math, world studies, and French. My son's improvement and added self confidence has been fantastic!
Tutor is always on time.My son is progressing and they email me updates at the end of every session .
Ms. Belle has tutored my twins since September 2016. She is great with them and they love working with her. I have seen significant improvements in my kids' written ability in terms of clarity, volume, flow, and style. They are in the 5th Grade AAP Level IV program in FCPS and are now comfortable constructing multiple paragraphs to express their ideas or tell a story. My daughter is especially confident and excited in her writing since working with Ms. Belle. My son's ability to write about his passion for sports has soared. The effort is reflected in the last two report cards and in the grades that they receive on their language arts projects. I highly recommend Ms. Belle as a language arts tutor and we will continue to engage her services.
Ms. Hoyle has been tutoring me for a few months. She has been great. I love working with her, it's been a good journey for me. I see a lot of improvement in me. Ms. Hoyle helps a great deal. I would recommend her to anyone. I want Ms. Hoyle to tutor my son. I am an adult seeking employment in law enforcement. THANK YOU!!!
I am amazed as to the quality of tutoring I received from Arbor Tutors given the low price. I was a bit skeptical at first because you never know. It was money very well spent.
Arbor Tutors is the best tutoring company anywhere. We tried several other tutors before Arbor and found exactly what we are looking for here.
Ms. Erin is a great Reading and Math Tutor!
I was referred by a friend who had found Yolanda through Thumbtack. She had such a wonderful experience, she passed her contact information along to me when I was looking for a reading tutor for my first grader. If you are looking for someone to just help your child through homework, a college tutor will do. If you are looking for someone to help your child really develop and progress, Yolanda is the perfect tutor for you. While her background and credentials are impressive, those things do not always equate to a having a good tutor. More than being a tutor, Yolanda will become your child's advocate alongside you. She is willing to go above and beyond to help your child and also always open and available to answer any questions or concerns you may have about your child. You will receive timely session updates on your child's progress so that you can really work with her to help your child. If you have any concerns about meeting online, let me assure you that the online experience is also wonderful. My son is actually more focused and has less distractions meeting online. He has his routine, getting his headphones on and getting the computer ready. He looks forward to his time with Ms. Yolanda! If you are serious about helping your child grow and develop, I would highly recommend Yolanda.
I wholeheartedly recommend Neza as a math tutor. She is exceptionally friendly, patient, and adept at explaining difficult concepts to young people in a way that engages them and helps them remember and apply what they learn.
After I failed college algebra last semester, I was recommended to Ryan for tutoring by my previous professor. I explained to Ryan it’s been a while since I took math and I was lacked understanding in certain math fundamentals. He was very caring about my situation and reassured me that my lack of knowledge wasn’t anything to be worried about. He gave me plenty of tips on how to solve problems and how to remember the steps associated with solving certain functions. He Was really entertaining in how he assisted with the work and was It’s down a single he astoundingly better at going over the work than my previous professor. Because of Ryan I passed my college algebra with a B, which compare to the F I got previously is much better. I’d highly recommend Ryan as a math tutor to anyone who is struggling with understanding math.
Andrew Sun To whomever this concerns, Before I signed up with this tutoring program, I was not very good academically. In fact, I was the worst in the toolshed. Knowing that I have no time to lose and my bleak future is upon me, I did what many people think it's best; To join the military. I didn't know what to expect of the navy to be honest, so I was unaware of the test you need to take called the asvab. My heart sank a little. I began searching on the Internet, looking for a tutor (especially on math) until I found out about Theo. Theo is the CEO for student circle and unlike other tutors; he is the only one that stood out. He is understanding, ambitious, and kind, but most importantly he can relate to you, creating a special bond which prompts you to succeed. So I explained to him my situation and he set me up with another tutor by the name of Xin. Right off the bat both of us got along and he helped me through two grueling months. There were times when I wanted to give up, but he was there for me. The funny thing is, he is going through an exam as well during my time with him, so he is the hardest working tutor I have ever came across. I swear, these two do actually care about me because when I took the asvab, I scored high enough to achieve some of the most coveted jobs the navy has to offer! These two will forever be part of my family. Student circle has the best sessions as well as memories. Thank you. Andrew
Dale was a great ACT tutor, especially when it came to teaching an international student the ins and outs of the Reading and Writing sections. Since we started working two weeks before the test date, Dale laid out a great strategy of drilling practice tests and helped us find our weak points to review. He had a great base of resources and experience to help us not only with tactics and test taking skills, but how we could apply these study techniques to a broad range of tests and classes.
My daughter is an elementary school students. At one of the teacher-parent meetings last school year we were informed that she has difficulties with understanding certain maths concepts. We decided to find a tutor for her so the problems don't get any worse. We contacted Ms Dominika and she helped our daughter understand the things she had issues with. The atmosphere during their meetings was so friendly that our daughter not only learn a lot but also had fun doing it.
Call appointment was made but Léa did not find it necessary to cancel the appointment prior to appointment time while not feeling well. She only ended up answering back to me when I reached out to her to ask about whether she would end up calling me. A misopportunity especially if she would have proved to be a great tutor for my child.
