Yale Math PhD: SAT prep, gifted-child math and physics
Who I am:
NOT your run-of-the-mill tutor. Before a career on Wall Street, I was a professional, world-class mathematician. I have an MS and a PhD in mathematics from Yale University, and summa cum laude BS and MS in mathematics from the former USSR. A graduate of one of the Soviet Union's elite math-and-physics high schools, I was also a multiple Mathematics Olympiad winner.
What I can do for you:
(1) SAT/ACT and ISEE/SSAT test prep. Important as they may be, test-taking techniques...

Phenomenal tutor!
Andrei tutored my daughter for SAT Math, and for the SAT Math 2 subject test. His online classes were amazing and she grasped the subject matter quickly. Andrei also gave her great tips on working faster and more efficiently. This helped tremendously on the exams. Andrei tutored her for three months for the SAT Math, she took the exam once and scored a 780 on the math. He then tutored her for a month for the SAT 2 math, she scored an 800 on that exam. We are very grateful to Andrei, for helping her achieve this. I would recommend Andrei very highly, his patience and dedication is outstanding! Thanks Andrei!

A superior tutor with a brilliant methodology!!
I have been looking for a tutor for a long and tedious time to help my daughter with ACT Math. You see I love my daughter a lot and wanted her to have the very best for this important and impactful test....Therefore, I've searched countless tutor profiles, asked questions and scrutinized so many tutors. You see, I was looking for a tutor that was results oriented but also didn't just have a mediocre, cookie-cutter approach to ACT Math. Additionally, there are sometimes tutors who have impressive credentials and understand some ACT Math principles in their own head but when it comes to communicating and teaching complex Math concepts to others, they are lacking. Not with Andrei, he's not only the most intelligent tutor/teacher my daughter has EVER worked with, but he also possessed that special gift of being able to make the complex simple and communicate it in a clear innovative way. For example, he was able to effectively communicate and explain the material from his point of view and he was able to see and understand it from different angles thus he was able to engage my daughter from her perspective too. Additionally his methodology is pure genius and I wish we offered it in our school systems. Although his rate was more than what I initially budgeted, I am making the adjustments and sacrifices for future lessons because I know it's a good investment overall in my daughter's education (since she wants to go into a stem field in the future that will require lots of math). I'm so thankful I found Andrei. He is definitely an answer to our prayers...If you're looking for the VERY BEST tutor on Wyzant, look no further!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor
On the first lesson Andrei was able to help my daughter feel confident in her math abilities. She's looking forward to the next lesson on a subject she never cared for. Thank you, Andrei!

Best tutor ever
After many weeks of researching and trying tutors, we finally found the perfect one! We needed someone with high level math experience. Andrei is a math guru with a wonderful disposition who is highly skilled at teaching. We will use Andrei again. We are more than pleased! Thanks, Andrei.

Very Knowledgeable and Thorough
I asked Andrei to help out with some very hard math questions. His solutions were so clear, easy to read, and very insightful. He really makes his best effort in making sure he does a excellent and thorough job to make my learning experience exponentially better!

An amazing tutor, who teaches more than just the material.
Andrei's tutoring not only resulted in significantly increasing my older son's SAT score, he also helped him see how to mentally approach a math problem. This helped him not only in Math, but also in solving science problems. Andrei is now helping my younger son. He really is a fantastic tutor.

Excellent tutor
1st lesson was excellent! Andrei came on time, even though the request for lesson was short notice. He gave my son helpful tips. My son is a good student, just needing some direction and extra help with geometry.

very professional and very smart!
My son said that Andrei was very helpful in preparing him for his Pre-Calc exam. He was flexible with our last-minute schedule and location. We were grateful for his help!
