Math PhD candidate with over 10 years of teaching experience

Victor B.
I am a mathematician with over 10 years of experience teaching and tutoring students of all ages and levels. I help my students develop an understanding of the whys and hows and I also provide tricks to flex the memory muscle, so patterns can be better grasped. My favorite thing about working with students is discovering the different ways in which each brain works and finding the most effective strategies for each individual student. Few things are more rewarding than noticing when someone...

## Knowledgeable, patient, and thorough.

Victor walked me through implicit differentiation with respect to time as well as some other calculus concepts. Very very helpful, patient, and through. When I asked for moment to dive deeper into a topic Victor was immediately patient, and listened and answered every question to help me understand.

## I feel so lucky I found Victor!! Incredibly talented tutor with a true love for math!

I’m so grateful to have Victor for my tutor. I worked with a few other folks who were great but Victor is simply extraordinary. I came to him looking for help with differential equations. The truth was that I didn’t know what I needed — and that’s where Victor really shines. It turned out I needed to go back and (re-)learn linear algebra from the start. He was able to guide my learning every step of the way. Even when I ask the same question for the 10th time! He’s incredibly knowledgeable but he’s also extremely patient. We went through most of linear algebra multiple times and it really clicks now. This has unlocked so much for me in my math studies. He’s also extremely skilled with the platform and tools (sketching images, graphing things in Desmos, pulling up examples in Wolfram Alpha) to show things in multiple creative ways until the ideas become clear. Not only that, he’s also game for whatever random math topic you throw at him — differentiation / integrals, linear algebra, trig, complex numbers, vector calculus, multivariate calculus, ODE’s and PDE’s, Fourier analysis, real analysis, group theory, topology, algebraic topology — the list goes on.. He has the uncanny ability to recall with precision every math concept, theorem, definition, topic or mathematician you ask about. He also has incredible recall of all the material we’ve gone over which allows you to connect the dots to what you’ve covered and learned together. But above all the thing that’s best about Victor is the clear joy he has in learning and teaching math. He loves to tell the stories of great mathematicians, the origin of ideas, the controversies behind the numbers. And that truly brings things alive.

## Awesome Tutor

Victor helped me with my Discrete math class. He listened to know what I understood and had already learned so that he could help me with the problems I needed work on. He showed me logical and methodical ways to writing proofs. Not only did he help me understand the material but he gave me confidence in solving the problems. He is truly an awesome tutor and I have now signed up with him weekly.

## One of the best on Wyzant!

I've been having consistent sessions with Victor now for awhile. He's a great math tutor for people like me who have been out of school for years and really need to brush up. We've been going over pretty heavy topics for my Discrete Mathematics course and Victor always breaks things down in such a way that I can understand and digest. I always see things a lot more clearly after his sessions. Working with him has helped me gain more confidence in Math overall. He's one of the best on Wyzant!

## Best Math Tutor

Victor helped me with differential equations and he was extremely knowledgeable and was great at explaining in simple terms that made complex topics easy to grasp. He was super nice, patient, but also got through the problems with me understanding 5x quicker than any other tutor I have had. 10000% recommend.

## VIctor is amazing!

Victor explains concepts in a way that my university professors do not. He clearly goes through my questions step by step and patiently answers all of my questions so that I can truly grasp the mathematical concepts. THANK YOU!

## saved my midterm grade

Victor really grinds to get you to understand stuff no matter how long it takes you. For sure passing. Linear Algebra with an A this quarter.
