My name is Vladimir and I am a post-baccalaureate student currently attending the University of North Florida pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (Minor: Construction Management) and also working towards a Certificate in Coastal and Port Engineering. My first degree is a Bachelor of Science in Physics (Magna Cum Laude) with a Minor in Mathematics.
My academic record consists of numerous accolades consisting of both academic and professional experiences. My most recent academic award was that of "Outstanding Physics Graduate (Academic Year 2011 - 2012)" supplemented by induction into several honor societies: Phi Kappi Phi (National Honorary Society - 2012), Pi Mu Epsilon (National Honorary Mathematics Society - 2011), Sigma Pi Sigma (National Physics Honor Society - 2010), and Excellence Student Awards Program in Physics (2008). Professional academic experience consists of research at the University of North Florida (Computational Neuroscience - 2011), Columbia University (Computational High-Energy Astroparticle Physics - 2010), and Florida State University (Computational Mathematical Biology - 2009).
I started my tutoring career at Florida State College at Jacksonville in 2006 in Mathematics tutoring various subjects within the field of mathematics: beginning algebra, intermediate algebra, college algebra, elementary statistics, etc. This was soon followed by tutoring experience in Physics starting fall semester 2009 following my transfer to the University of North Florida. Hence, I've been tutoring various mathematics subjects since 2006 (7+ years of experience) as well as physics since 2009 (4+ years of experience), thus, I would consider myself well versed in both mathematics and the sciences. I have a passion for tutoring (as well as teaching) because not only do I enjoy the subjects that I tutor but also knowing that I played a part in the academic success of my tutees and students! Hi there,

A cancellation fee ($45) will be charged to the student for failure to provide adequate cancellation notice (within 3 hours or no show within 15 minutes of the scheduled tutoring time)
Vladimir has worked with my child in both Algebra I and Geometry. I can highly recommend him - he's just terrific. We've been scheduling sessions on an "as needed" basis after assessing my child's latest quiz or test grade, and Vladimir goes out of his way to accommodate our schedule. His low-key approach is never intimidating and he listens well, which helps him identify trouble spots and weaknesses. He knows when to step in and, almost more importantly, when to hang back, letting the student do the work. I feel fortunate that we have access to such a high quality tutor in Vladimir, and I will continue to call on him when we need him.
He helped my daughter go over subjects that she is struggling with in Algebra1. He was able to meet us on very short notice and helped her a lot! Very knowledgeable.
Vladimer was able to quickly identify our son's needs. What I liked most about his teaching style was that he made him think and didn't just give answers. After 2 tutoring lessons he was able to retake the failed exam and his grade improved to passing. More than that, he is finally talking positively about math abilities. He has gone from I hate math to precalculus isn't that hard!
Vladimir is very knowable in math. He has helped my son with all of the following areas: Linear Functions
* Midpoint Formula
* Distance Formula
* Line Segment Analysis
* Solving Equations
We would have been able to do it with someone who has mastered the subject.
We worked on limits and trig. I'm feeling much better about passing my calculus class. I learned alot. I'm looking forward to our next lesson. Thanks Vladimir!!
Vladimir is helping my daughter with precalculus. My daughter said he is very knowledgeable, patient and can teach well. She is more confident and is looking forward to the next session. Also Vladimir is very punctual and works to accommodate around your schedule.
My daughter really enjoyed Vladimir. He broke down the material in several ways that she could understand. I would definitely recommend!
We reviewed three chapters for physics for engineers 2 in an hour. He also helped me with some physics hw. I recently received and 86 on my last physics test.
I have always hated math and never understood it. Vladimir and I had our first session and I already feel more confident. I scheduled two more sessions with him and think that at this rate I will pass my precalc and trig course!
Vladimir, thanks for your help in working with my daughter to prepare her for Algebra. She is currently taking Algebra 1 Honors in 7-grade and has a 98% average. Next up is Geometry! Thanks again for your help!
My son was tutored by Vladimir in Geometry in preparation for his end of course exam. Each session, he was patient and explained things in a clear manner. Vladimir was easy to reach through E mail, and was flexible with scheduling. I would highly recommend him to any student.
Easy to get ahold of. Very great teacher. If it was not for him I would have failed trig, but I need up getting an A in the class. I am still getting help from him for my math classes and has been an assets to me getting though college. I highly recommend him as tutor.
Vladimir has been great. The proof is in the results and my daughters grades have been on the increase since he has started to help. He is easy to schedule and makes sure he is prepared for the subject to be covered. Highly recommended.
I've been receiving tutoring services from Vladimir for about 2 months. In just this time, he has improved my understanding & overall knowledge of Algebra 2, as my test scores will show. Before his tutoring services, I was failing my math tests. Most of my test scores were 55-63%. Now, however, I'm scoring A's on my tests/exams. I feel so much more confident in mathematics, due to his great tutoring services. Also, Vladimir is very patient and holds an extensive understanding of math. He has been able to explain things to me clearly and has the ability to answer any questions I may have. Vladimir always stays very punctual and organized so that each tutoring session is focused on the subject matter.
Vladimir has been working with my daughter on Algebra I and when he noticed a deficiency in some of the basic math skills has adapted his material to help reinforce the old skills along with the new ones. We are very pleased so far.
Vladimir's instructions were clear and concise. He showed extreme patience, intelligence and professionalism while guiding my 11th grade daughter to answer most of her own questions. His gift was and is a blessing!
Vladimir was very patient and thoroughly explained the material. My daughter felt much better
about the material after the session. We are signed up for the following week! Thanks Vladimir!
Vladimir is great for my 14 year old son. He places an emphasis on learning the material rather than giving him the answers. This has improved my son's understanding and later recall of the material. Additionally, he manages to keep his attention for three hours straight! This is huge! I highly recommend him.
Absolutely knows his stuff! Proficient at determining where you are stumbling, and can get straight to the source of the problem to help you understand the concept, meaning, and subsequently the solutions. Definitely A+++++ and would hire again.
Vladimir was very helpful to me. He made sure that I understood the topics we covered together, and that I didn't have any questions left. He doesn't talk down to his clients like other tutors may. He treats you like an equal. (Son)
I thought Vladimir was clear, concise, and calm when working with my son. My son felt much better and confident about his understanding of per-Calculus following just 1 session. We agree we would highly recommend Vladimir as a tutor and enjoyed meeting him! (Mom)
We are so happy that we found Vladimir! My daughter who is a highschool junior, needed some extra help in Physics. She has been going to Vladimir for about a month. He is very patient, and makes sure that she understands the concept they are working on. He asks her if she has any questions and does not mind going back and explaining again.
I am still a little new to the area. I was a little hesitant in using this website, but after all of the problems I have been experiencing with my online Calculus class, I decided it was worth it! I met Vladimir and he cleared up so much confusion with the subject! I also really appreciate his high level of patience with me (the last time I went through College Algebra was 16 years ago). I have had communication with my professor by phone, but there were some problems I felt embarrassed about even telling her. Vladimir made it really easy to open up and admit the rules of math I had forgotten from years ago. He has been a Godsend, and I very much look forward to working with him again to help me with the remaining weeks of this class. I will be referring his name to anyone I know going through Math trouble. Thanks so much!!!
My daughter just had her first tutor session. Vladimir seemed very attentive, thorough and interested in her progress. So far so. and looking forward to her other tutoring sessions.
Vladimir is an extremely patient tutor! He always goes out of his way to make sure you fully understand the concepts! I definitely recommend him!
Very easygoing but thorough! Makes sure you understand the material before moving onto the next problem. Tutor is very easy to get a hold of as well
We got an immediate response from Vladimir and was able to set up tutoring very quickly after contacting him. He has helped my daughter with both physics and precalculus homework and has been very helpful. He is quite patient and is explains the material until she has a good understanding. We are very happy we found Vladimir!
I am currently taking College Physics with Calculus, Vladimir was very patient and thorough in explaining the concepts. Vladimir certainly expressed his knowledge and ability to teach others.
We enlisted Vladimir to tutor our son in Geometry. He responded quickly to our initial request for tutoring, and set up a session the same week. My son's impression of Vladimir was that he was patient and explained the concepts clearly. We saw immediate results on our son's grade after only one tutoring session. We have continued the tutoring sessions, and Vladimir has been able to identify weak areas and address them during the sessions. My son continues to improve in Geometry, and I no longer have to spend hours trying to explain math concepts that I haven't looked at in over 30 years. I recommend Vladimir to any parent whose child is struggling with keeping up in Geometry/Algebra.
Our son has been having a very difficult time with pre-calculus, longs hours of homework getting frustrated while not getting to the right answer. We tried a couple different things to help him; having his brother that does well in the subject try to help out, then tutoring at school but nothing seemed to be working. We then found Wyzant and Vladimir while searching online for help. After 3 sessions with Vladimir, he is finally starting to get it. Study habits and small tricks to help him get to the right answers are just a few of the things Vladimir is teaching our son. Our son is feeling more confident in what he is doing and feeling better about himself. We appreciate the help Vladimir... Thanks
My 14 year old son is being tutored by Vladimir and he is great! He is very patient and understanding. Quick to figure out where the problem is and begin teaching from there. My son is very comfortable with him and has actually started to enjoy his subject again. He does not waste any time gets straight to the tutoring and is professional. We are very happy we found Vladimir.
I got a reply an hour after initially emailing Vladimir about helping me with my Physics w/Calculus class. He was available to help right away and was very flexible with his schedule. I was surprised by his knowledge in Physics, and he was actually able to help me understand the material better than my teacher. Needless to say, I am extremely happy that chose to contact him, and I will continue to have Vladimir as a tutor.
Vladimir is great. He takes the time to go over and over and over again the same equations or explanation when needed. He spent 3 hours with my son today and it was money well spent. He explained it in a way that my son understood. My son is actually excited to go to school and to his precalculus class to see if what he had learned from Vladimir sunk in. I highly recommend Vladimir.
Vladimir is very patient with my daughter. When she doesn't understand something, he tries different ways to help her comprehend and it works. I'm very pleased with his services.
Vladimir was willing to help me at a last minute request. He was very patient, productive, and strongly encouraged me to learn the material in the correct manner. Vlad was very informed in the subject of physics and made sure I left the lessons with more knowledge than I came in with. I suggest him to anyone who needs a well rounded and reliable tutor.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I'm currently studying Civil Engineering at the University of North Florida and already have a Bachelor of Science in Physics with an emphasis on mathematics, including Algebra 1. I've also been tutoring for several years on various mathematical disciplines this I feel more than competent on being able to tutor your son effectively.
