Hello! I have been a professional tutor since 2003, specializing in math (pre-algebra through AP calculus), AP statistics, and standardized test preparation. I am very effective in helping students to not just get a better grade, but to really understand the subject matter and the reasons why things work the way they do. I do this in a way that is positive, supportive, and also fun. I explain difficult math and science concepts in simple English, and continue working with students until they understand the concepts really well. All my students enjoy improvements in their grades, as well as reduction in their overall stress level.
I was an instructor at some of the top test prep companies, so among my specialties is preparation for standardized tests like SAT, ACT, SSAT, and many others. I am very effective in helping students improve their test scores: in a past testing year all of my SAT students scored 700 and above! Some of them were scoring in mid-500, when I started working with them.
I bring my full attention and dedication to the students that I work with. Since every person is unique, I personalize my approach to each student. This makes my work very effective and allows each student to truly improve their skills, knowledge, and understanding! I have helped hundreds of students, both one on one and in a classroom setting, and many of them provide excellent references and referrals for me.
Please get in touch with me – I will be very happy to help you succeed.
They should make a movie about Vladimir
Wow! I worked as a tutor in the 1990s, and I've hired a good number over the years. I've never come across someone with such a winning blend of technical strengths and infectious optimism. We asked the impossible from Vladimir: trying to get a dispirited teen back on track after a month of chaos and F-level performance in AP Stats. Was there any hope of recovery? Vladimir got to work. He made everything logical and clear. He set high expectations. He knew when to be encouraging and when to insist on more careful work. Our son began looking forward to each Sunday's tutoring session. Grades began to perk up in a most incredible way. Most important, the joy of learning came back into the picture. We didn't just get a better statistics student in the process. We got a son who was ready to "work through the hard stuff," applying the lessons from this class to lots of other life challenges. Vladimir's rates aren't low. But a steady series of lessons with him represents one of the best bargains in all of WyzAnt.George, 13 lessons with Vladimir

Knowledgeable and patient
My daughter just had her first math lesson wit Vladimir and she really enjoyed it. We hope to use Vladimir more often in the future. She said that Vladimir explained the how to solve difficult math problems well. When asked if Vladimir helped her understand the math concept better, she said YES.Bo, 2 lessons with Vladimir
Thankful for his Help
I was in an impossible situation in my statistic's class until I came across Vladimir's profile. I currently attend a community college and have planned to transfer to a university in the fall. In order to do this, I had to pass my statistics class. After it being three days after taking my finals and turning in all my assignments, I get an email from my professor saying that I have a 69.96% in my statistics class. He advised me to complete 4 problems within 3 days in order to pass the class with a 70%. I quickly went to the tutoring center at my school, I called multiple tutoring centers in the area and even asked another statistic's professor from my campus but NO ONE could understand the problems. I finally come across this website and thankfully found Vladimir. I messaged him about my situation and he responded quickly. We met the next day and got to work. He noticed that I was stressed and told me to relax and assured me that everything was going to be okay. We worked together as a team and he was the only person that could tackle these problems and get them done on time. I am so unbelievably thankful for his help and would recommend him to anyone who feels like they are in an impossible situation with math. Because of Vladimir I can successfully transfer to the university I was accepted to!Adrianna, 1 lesson with Vladimir
Excellent tutoring session
Vladimir is a straightforward teacher. He makes complicated topics clear and patiently makes sure my son understands and can replicate the material they are discussing well before moving on to new topics.Lauren, 30 lessons with Vladimir
Vlad is a dynamic tutor!
As an adult making a career change, I needed Statistics as part of my degree requirement. Having not taken math in many years, I was filled with anxiety and insecurity about Statistics. I took an online Statistics class, which increased my fear even more. Vladimir worked with me not only on equations and formulas, he helped me overcome the fear that blocked my understanding of the questions. Vladimir knowledge of statistics and his love of math really shows through in his tutoring. Over the course of 16 tutoring sessions with Vladimir, I became a more disciplined student. Calm replaced anxiety and confidence replaced insecurity. All of our work together resulted in my success in passing the course. I am grateful for finding Vladimir on Wyzant. I would recommend him to anyone, especially adult learners. He understands the unique challenges and meets them with knowledge and incredible kindness.Lonnie, 16 lessons with Vladimir

excellent first lesson
My daughter was very comfortable with Vladimir even in her first lesson. She felt he was very nice and easy to understand. She liked that he went into details of the math problems and unearthed and answered questions about areas that she wasn't sure how to do . He seems very knowledgeable , good at communicating , and fun.Ann, 11 lessons with Vladimir
Vishal found his first session with Vladimir very helpful. Vishal acknowledged that he needed to slow down and write his steps more legibly. Vishal is looking forward to his next sessions with Vladimir.Nisha , 87 lessons with Vladimir
We hired Vladimir to work with our 13 year old son to prepare for the SSAT. He was able to pinpoint the areas where our son needed help and identified ways to help him improve. Valdimir was very thorough and conscientious in his instruction, had great materials designed specifically for the SSAT and worked well with our son!Megan, 5 lessons with Vladimir
