Anton is the best tutor I have ever had the pleasure of working with. His seemingly limitless knowledge of mathematics helped me get an A in an advanced statistics graduate course that I did not have much background in at all. I have since accepted a statistics position and have begun my career. Always on time and impeccably organized, Anton is worth every penny invested.
Anton is a friendly tutor with a strong knowledge base and clever intuition into mathematical concepts. I think he would be a good tutor for many students, but my one 3-hour session with him did not quite meet my expectations nor seem to justify the price. I leave this mixed review in the spirit of continuous improvement. Anton and I worked on some statistics. In my introductory emails and at the beginning of our session, I expressed that I felt comfortable with much of the material but wanted to focus on some of my textbook's more complex exercises and then move on to some proofs. As we flipped through the textbook in search of good problems to tackle, Anton tended to stop at the beginning of each chapter, read out loud the definitions of key concepts, and diagram the concepts on paper. "I'm comfortable with this concept," I found myself repeating. The problem is not that Anton was bad at explaining these concepts, he was quite good, but he didn't seem to pay close attention to whether I needed to spend time on a particular area or not. At more than one point, I explained a concept and then he explained the same concept to me as if he hadn't registered that I fully understood it. I pressed us to move forward to the hard exercises, and at multiple points he insisted we do one more of the basic examples before moving on. It seems that good tutoring should involve paying close attention to the material AND close attention to the student; I felt like Anton was only doing the former. At times, I got the sense that Anton wanted to focus on each chapter's introductory content to make sure that he was fully up to speed before moving to the hardest exercises. I understand this; it's natural given that he probably tutors different content every day. But it seems to me that, given the significant tutoring fee, time should only be spent on what the student needs, not what the tutor needs. My assumption based on Anton's stellar background, rave reviews, and high cost was that he would immediately be ready for whatever material we might jump to. Once we made it to a section where I had been previously confused (joint density functions where the bounds of one variable are conditional on the other), Anton was very helpful. We only made it to this point because I insisted we jump ahead; we never made it to the proofs I had hoped to cover. In retrospect, I should have had a more specific game-plan about exactly which sections to tackle. I do wish Anton had been more proactive about time management, as well. Next time, I intend to be much more deliberate about focusing the tutor's time on the highest priority areas, and more assertive if I think we're dawdling. In turn, I hope Anton will pay closer attention to the comfort level and preferred pacing that his students vocalize.
When my son needed last-minute help preparing for his AP Calculus exam, Anton came to the rescue with subject expertise, patience, punctuality, and warmth. We could not have found anyone better!
Anton also tutored my son for his Calculus (BC) final exam. He made sure my son was very well prepared. Anton was able to assess exactly what areas needed work on and then to provide clear explanations and sample problems. Highly recommended!
Anton tutored my son for Honors Calculus and did an excellent job. Anton was pleasant to work with, made a nice connection with my son and was very flexible with scheduling. Most importantly, with Anton's help, my son had a very successful year earning an A- for the class. I highly recommend Anton to anyone looking for math tutoring!
My son was in AP Calculus BC. This was not his favorite class, but I found that having Anton tutor him helped by encouraging a good study discipline. The sessions were particularly helpful in preparing for exams, especially if we were able to provide Anton with the test subjects ahead of time. In addition, Anton was very flexible in accommodating my son's hectic senior schedule. I would certainly recommend Anton for other calculus students.
Anton tutored my daughter in college level Physics for nearly 2 months. Each session was for 2 hours. My daughter is shy and Anton was very patient and explained the topics very thoroughly. My daughter did well on her exams and homework assignments as a result of the tutoring. He was very reliable and I highly recommend him as a tutor.
We worked together through the entire calculus syllabus. We covered all topics in depth, often solving the most complex problems. Anton lectures were very helpful and were often conducted remotely using Skype. Using Skype was incredibly successful. Anton also taught me to become proficient in programming the TI-nspire cx CAS and use of wolfram alpha. Anton is reliable and trustworthy. He was always a great pleasure to work with. We would often work together late into the night on Skype and I was always fully engaged by Anton's lectures and proofs. Anton did a great job in explaining the material I wanted to cover. He's a great teacher and always responds to my emails within very short time (most times within 1-2 hours).
From start to finish, Anton has been great. We were in a state of panic over the difficulties my son had with calculus and needed immediate help. Anton was available the very week that we contacted him. We wanted to work with him in particular because of all of the other great reviews that had been posted. Not only has my son moved beyond his difficulties, he has gained a confidence in math that he didn't have before. Anton did a great job of finding basic weaknesses and mistakes from bad habits or processes. After he worked with my son on these issues, his math markedly improved. In addition to calculus work, Anton worked on math SAT problems and we again found noticeable improvements. Anton also has a very patient and kind personality so that my son never felt frustrated or stressed. I highly recommend Anton and will work with him again, if we need a math tutor in the future.
Anton is a nice, punctual, prepared, and extremely intelligent person. He is flexible with schedule changes. He can explain very complex ideas in a simple manner. He does not assign homework so you can work at your own pace. I would recommend him for motivated hardworking students who need help understanding complicated concepts.
We are so pleased with Anton's work with our son in algebra II and currently trigonometry. He is highly qualified, patient and does not just teach to the problem but identifies and remediates areas of individual challenge for his student. He encourages individual problem solving as well as an understanding of all concepts and concise methods to approach problems. Anton continually gives positive feedback to our son when he achieves results. Best tutor we have had in math - feel very confidant that Anton can help our son through this difficult course and achieve success.
Anton is working well with both my sons, which is not always an easy task. They like him and actually enjoy their SAT review sessions. Anton is professional and tries hard to accommodate their difficult schedules. I highly recommend him. 1/31/14: Anton and my sons continue to do well together. We are very happy with our choice of a tutor! Everything is great... he is kind, professional, easy to work with and my sons (even when exhausted from wrestling!) still enjoy tutoring. We are very happy.
I am currently studying computer science at Tufts University and enlisted Anton's help for one of my courses. Anton's diverse experience in computer programming, together with good teaching nous allowed him to make difficult principles understandable, and facilitate my improvement in more familiar areas. I would highly recommend Anton to anyone!
Anton is patient, thorough and easy to work with. He also goes out of his way to make himself available when needed.
Mr. Anton K is a great tutor with strong sense of responsibility and extreme patience. He teaches in a very creative way which activates great interest of my 9-year-old daughter. C++ is very difficult to learn and to teach. He succeeds to let my daughter understand complicated concepts easily and really enjoy programming herself. We are so lucky to find such a good tutor.
I was looking for a science buff who could not only provide incredible knowledge; but satisfy my 7 year old son's love for physics and chemistry in a youthful and playful manner that was appropriate on his level. Luckily, I found that in Anton! My son enjoyed working with him! He provided information on magnetism, electricity, power, conductors, atoms,and much much more! If you have a child with a hunger for science, and want a warm, gentle man with lots of experience, Anton is your guy!!!!!
It is hard to find a tutor who knows the material well, can work at the student's level and really cares. Anton has this amazing combination. He is also incredibly smart and detailed. He makes sure that you understand each concept and works each problem thoroughly with diagrams and illustrations. He also derives all the important formulas which helps memory and understanding. I am really pleased at my good fortune to have gotten such an outstanding tutor. I highly recommend Anton to anyone who wants to master Physics. You will be studying with an EXPERT!
I am entering a MBA program and needed some help with a pre-MBA test covering math topics such as calculus, statistics, etc. The only problem is I have little to no familiarity with these topics! In only a few short hours, Anton was able to walk me through step by step and clearly articulate not just the technical knowledge, but the concepts behind the numbers. Aside from his clear handle on the subject matter and ability to explain concepts well, Anton was also very friendly and professional, and I would definitely recommend him to anyone. Thanks for everything Anton.
Anton is very patient and did a great job connecting with my son. He is knowledgeable and allowed my son to learn by asking questions and explaining as he did the work. I highly recommend him.
It was a pleasure working with Anton. He is truly amazing. He motivated my otherwise unmotivated son. He is, no doubt, very knowledgeable, very dedicated, very dependable, and much focused on the goal. He invests himself in the outcome for the student and is passionate about what he is doing, which doesn't surprise me considering his qualifications and background. He built on my son's strengths and very quickly identified his weaknesses and areas which required more attention. He had an uncanny ability to engage my son in a learning process so much so that my son actually enjoyed it which in turn allowed more gains from the meetings with Anton. Two meetings were enough for my son to regain confidence in his own abilities and within a relatively short period of time my son made up for what he had lost since the beginning of the school year. Thanks to Anton's great personality and intuition he established very good rapport with my son early on. As a parent I felt very confident to leave my son in his hands. He is very professional. I highly, highly recommend him.
At the time of mid-term exams not only was I not passing business statistics, my grade was very, very low... I would have to make extremely good grades for the balance of the semester just to pass. I thought there was absolutely no way. Because of Anton's tutoring sessions, I not only passed I ended up with an acceptable grade. Anton worked with me to help me understand all the concepts; I had multiple tests coming up and the final was cumulative. Without Anton's help there is NO WAY I would have even passed the course let alone make a decent grade.
Thanks Anton for your help. Your patience and dedication to pass the concepts the way they should be is highly appreciated. Your approach guarantees success on solid ground!
Anton turned out to be by far an excellent Matlab tutor! He took his time and made sure I understood each step before we proceeded to the next step. He is very knowledgeable about Matlab. I would recommend him highly to anyone wanting to learn anything about Matlab!
Anton was right on time. He was patient, knowledgeable, lovely supportive. I would recommend to any high school senior or below for physics help.
