Extremely knowledgeable and engaging teacher/tutor!

Arnold is a terrific teacher. He has engaged my son completely in the subject of AP US history. Patrick is not usually a fan of history, but Arnold has made the subject material interesting and alive and reviews material in a way that Patrick says makes it easy to retain. I am so grateful to Arnold for working with my son and recommend him without reservation!

Great Tutor

Working with Arnold was a great experience. He made learning so simple and easy to follow. He is straight forward and does not play any games he wants you to take learning seriously. He was patient and worked well with me, he talked to me and was interested in knowing what I knew and was able to build from that so that I could learn and understand much more. I would recommend him to any of my friends and fully recommend him to anyone who is looking for a knowledgeable, patient, understanding tutor and someone who is serious about learning. Thank you Arnold for all of your help.
