"Fantastic math tutor! Life (grade) saver! "
Kaila from San Francisco, CA on 5/28/13
I came to find Vladimir on WyzAnt, in April 2013. I am a Junior at University of San Francisco, and enrolled in a college statistics course. I have several learning differences, one of them being dyslexia, which in my case only applies to numbers. It is extremely hard, if not impossible for me to comprehend even simple mathematical arithmetic. Over the years of struggle with math, tutors have given up, or become extremely frustrated with me because I do not get the material in a timely manner. To say that Vladimir is a life-saver, is an understatement! He is the most amazing math tutor I have ever had! Not only did I see him five times a week (sometimes more) in order to pass statistics, he talked me through my anxiety, and calmed me down countless times when I felt stressed. He genuinely cares about his students, and works very hard to explain confusing concepts. He is undoubtedly one of the most patient people on the planet! There is no doubt in my mind I would have failed the class if it were not for Vladimir.
I plan on going to graduate school in the bay area, and I will not hesitate to contact Vladimir in the future. Because of my major, I will be required to take a statistics course again. I know, and trust Vladimir will help me out when that time comes again.
I am so grateful that I not only passed statistics with a good grade, but I also understand the material!! Thank you so much, Vladimir!!!
"Expert Tutor Helped in a Pinch and My Son Passed His Statistics Final with 104%!"
Amy from Alameda, CA on 6/28/14
My son was at risk of failing statistics, with the final a week and half away. Vladimir responded promptly to my urgent inquiry, and emailed us questions to help identify how to come best prepared to dig in quickly to provide the specific help my son would need. He arrived promptly each session and worked with my son over a series of three sessions. My son said, "He was helpful, and he was able to explain the statistics material really well, in a way that I had not previously been able to understand during the class. He went through the chapters and went over what I did not understood and patiently explained to me what to do and when. He also went over with me what situation called for what type of calculator application so that it made sense and I had it all written down in one place." I really appreciated that after each session, my son was feeling more confident in himself and his ability to grasp the material. I definitely highly recommend Vladimir and wrote him right away to let him know that my son had passed the final with flying colors.
"Very thorough and helpful! "
Meredith from San Francisco, CA on 4/10/14
I emailed Vladimir as the end of my statistics course was fast approaching. He explained things in a way that made statistics easy to understand. I had saved 3 months of work for the last 3 weeks of class. Thanks to Vladimir, I got 100% on all my homework, 100% on the midterm, and an A on the final!! He was able to work with my schedule and squeeze in extra appointments at the last minute. There is no doubt in my mind that I got an A in the class because of his help. If I ever need help with math again, I am calling him! Thank you!
"ACT Math and Science - Focused and Patient"
Chatty from San Francisco, CA on 9/11/13
Our family hired Vladimir specifically to help our daughter raise her score in the ACT Math and Science. She reports that Vladimir is very helpful, focused and has offered a lot of clarity with her specific problem areas. We are delighted with Vladimir - so professional, prompt and helpful.
"A Great Teacher!"
Denise from San Francisco, CA on 5/26/13
My son needed someone to teach him math. His teacher at school would not explain things and it was snowballing. Vladimir was able to break things down in pieces and explain it in detail. My son was able to regain the confidence and able to understand the subject. We appreciated his professionalism and approach. I highly recommend him as a tutor.
"Excellent AP Statistics tutor."
Cordia from San Francisco, CA on 5/15/13
Vladimir has worked with my son for a little less than 6 months. He is very patient and his schedule is very flexible. Vladimir has helped him achieve more than what he thought he would of this year. Before my son had tutoring sessions with Vladimir, he was barely passing my tests, and now he has a high A in my AP Stats class. Vladimir has well prepare for my son AP test, and he expect to get a 5 on it. Vladimir, is an excellent tutor, and I would highly recommend him to anybody.
"Helped me pass statistics class!"
Lora from San Francisco, CA on 3/5/13
If you're looking for a patient tutor for stats, which is my most dreaded of all subjects, Vlad is very patient. The class got more complicated towards the end and I couldn't afford more tutoring sessions, so I ended up with a B overall. I wish I had an A, but I'm just glad it's over. I recommend Vlad for anyone who hates Stats as much as I do, and who needs more explanation than the professor has time for. I only wish he was a little more affordable, I would've possibly spent more time towards the end.
"Patient and thorough!"
Constance from San Francisco, CA on 2/27/13
My son has only been working with Vladimir (Algebra 1) for about 5 weeks now and already his math skills have improved dramatically! While my son understood the concepts of algebra, he was rushing and not taking the time to problem solve correctly. Vladimir is teaching him how to be patient, slow down and concentrate. Vladimir is such a good fit. His test scores have gone up 2 letter grades and his attention in his class has gone from distracted to engaged because of the skills he is learning and the success he is having in the class.
"Great calculus tutor."
Marc from San Francisco, CA on 2/24/13
Vladimir is a great calculus tutor. He is very patient even after tutoring me for several hours straight. He explains each concept such as Riemann sums, integrals, and limits and then shows examples to help me understand. Vladimir not only shows how to do the problems I don't understand but also goes through them with me so that I know how to do them on my own.
"Great Tutor "
Ida from Millbrae, CA on 9/28/12
My child began tutoring with Vladimir this summer. She has really taken to him due to his knowledge in math. He understand the subject very well and also gets it when my daughter is completely lost. He makes sure she not only gets the right answer, but really understand how to get the answer. He is always on time and is always in a very good mood. I look forward to our continued relationship with him. I would recommend him to anyone needing a math tutor.
Debra from San Francisco, CA on 3/30/12
We have worked with Vlad for about 2 years and have been very happy. My son is currently in pre-calc at Lowell and Vlad has helped him stay focused and on track. He always arrives on time, is flexible, and has been kind enough to reschedule for emergency review sessions before big tests. Vlad is a professional tutor and takes his job seriously. He probably is not perfect for under 8 or 9 year olds, but for early to late teens who want to master difficult upper level math and prepare for the SAT, he is excellent.
"Get Tutor "
Nicholas from Belvedere Tiburon, CA on 1/31/11
I highly recommend Vladimir as a Math tutor because of his ability to slow down and make it clear what is being covered in class. He will take you to the next letter grade and then help you to truly understand what you are learning. He has a methodical math approach and a vast knowledge of mathematics that makes him a valuable resource. I have spent numerous hours working with him to get an A in calculus, he has helped me learn everything and unlike most students feel I can use what I'm learning better and more effectively. I don't recommend cramming for math test but if you work with him regularly he will help you truly understand the subject you are struggling in. If Its worth knowing its worth knowing well, he can help you find your mistakes and then has experience in correcting them so you don't make them on test. He's also a very nice man, who is very level headed and if you just cant get it will keep working until he feels he has made it clear to you, a valuable tool in learning something most teacher never do in class or in there offices hours. All in all I recommend him to any student at any level trying to get a better grade, while actually learning more, and even becoming interested in something many call a boring subject.
