About Adrian

I worked my entire life with math, as student for 16 years and as a teacher for 30 years, so I believe that I can help you succeed.

I love to work 1 on 1 with someone who really wants to do well in math. In my long career I had all kind of students, who liked or not mathematics, who had skin of any color, coming from all kind of environments, and I believed I helped everyone, but it is true that some people need more time than others to be good in math.

I taught all subjects in math starting with Pre-Algebra and ending with Calculus, for students from 5th grade to 12 grade. I also test prep my students for ACT and the new SAT if needed.

I am looking forward to help you be successful in school, make you and your family happy people and math stress free.

I also could help people of all ages to enjoy the pleasure and benefits of table tennis, with over 40 years of experience as high level player- 9th place in IL, soccer, as player and coach at elementary and high school level, and game of chess, as an avid player.

Teaching English language is a part of my job as an educator, so I can help in different areas of it, as well as Romanian language, which is my native language

Approved subjects

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.

ACT Math

I am a math teacher in Chicago who taught all types of math, from Pre-Algebra to Pre-Calculus.

Algebra 1

30 years of teaching experience in subject ranging from pre-algebra to pre-calculus. I earned a Master's degree in Education back in 2008 at Univ. of IL at Urbana.
My students were at all levels of mathematics abilities

Chess

I was taught this wonderful game by my father when I was a little kid. I started enjoying the game more and more so I started studying a little for improving my skills. I enjoyed reading chess magazines and trying to solve their problems. At one point in my life I attended tournaments.

I believe I can teach any kid or adult how to play this game and improve their chess skills, because this game makes your brain sharp and last a very long time.

Soccer

I played soccer my whole life, as a right forward in my younger age, and right defender later on in life.
I also coached boys and girls at elementary schools and also high school level.
I am also a licensed referee for almost 20 years for USSF, IHSA, and college.
I believe that I can help young players and prospective new referees to be successful in the future.

Table Tennis

I was lucky to have access to some tables for ping pong when I was little, so I started enjoying this game more and more.

In my 7th grade I met a kid who was a club player and invited me to his club. In a short time I was one of the best players and participated in the Romanian national junior division. At 18 years of age I won my first county title, and played in the second national men's league until we moved up to first division. I came in USA at that point and I started playing in tournaments reaching a rating of 2100. I won several tournament around the areas of IL and IN. I also reached the 9th ranking player in IL at the time. My work did not allow me to practice as much, so I just started coaching people who were interested in this sport. I believe that my expertise for over 40 years would help anyone interested in the most popular sport in the world.

Great math tutor!

We met with Adrian with the idea of providing guidance and tutoring for my 15 year-old sophomore. Adrian is very knowledgeable, patient and caring. Most importantly my son really connected with him. Adrian was able to present himself as an authority and provide much needed studying structure, homework scheduling and "to put things in order" kind of concept. My son's grades immediately improved and
