Math, Statistics, SAT~ACT~SSAT Tutor -- very patient and effective
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...

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.

Amazing, thorough tutor, two subjects
Vladimir has helped my son not only survive AP Statistics (a class he did not originally like) but thrive. My son reached out to Vladimir for in-depth questions, homework, and test review, and earned an A in the class. Vladimir has the the teacher’s expertise to know how to explain the subject and how best to prep for tests. My son found working with Vladimir so worth while that he has chosen him as a tutor again on Calculus and has not been disappointed. Highly recommend.

Knowledgeable, compassionate and patient tutor
Vladimir has tutored both our kids over the last 6 years. First our daughter, then our son. It would be selling Vladimir short to say he is a fantastic tutor. He has literally helped changed The lives of our kids, enabling them to approach education and life with more confidence and sharpened skills. He is literally a gentle giant. Knowledgeable, compassionate and patient. He approaches each child in a very customized way, making sure to spend the time to ensure the student not only learns the material, but is excited and motivated to learn. That is the key to confidence and understanding. He has become a Sunday fixture in our household and while we are excited to see our last child move on to college, it will be sad to not have Vladimir sitting with one of our kids on a Sunday afternoon. I can’t say enough kind words for Vladimir. I can’t imagine working with anyone else for our or your child. One of the best decisions we ever made was beginning our journey with Vladimir as our kids tutor. The kids started with a tutor in Vladimir and they ended with a friend and educational muse and “coach”. We won’t ever forget how he has contributed to our children’s success and confidence. Nor will they.

Patient and knowledgeable tutor
Vladimir was very patient even when explaining very rudimentary concepts, making sure to explain every step involved in the process. I could see the results after only a few sessions.

Nice and knowledgeable tutor
Vladimir taught completely strange and complicated math that my son's school assigns him. He needed help understanding what I never learned having gone to Berkeley. Vladimir was able to help and will continue. Thank you.

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.
