Experienced tutor with four years of experience teaching organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, physics, biology, physiology & anatomy, and all math subjects up to calculus II. High yield sessions for quick fixes or exam prep are offered if necessary.

MOTTO:
“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”

MISSION :
To transform students into independent learners.

METHOD:
I am a results-based individual with high standards. One client has described me as “hell bent” in maximizing my students' potential. My approach is highly individualized and takes into consideration other factors that affect student performance (anxiety, poor foundation, discouragement). I look to do more than improve a single test performance by motivating a student to work more independently and eventually be able to succeed without outside help. I also work closely with parents to ensure the best learning environment is created for the student and to receive feedback to make sure our goals are aligned.

Examples:
Physics --> Greater focus on vectors and calculus concepts even for those not taking calculus-based physics. Allows students to began thinking in a more abstract fashion before they approach the core laws in physics.

Inorganic Chemistry --> Emphasize dimensional analysis (understanding units) over equation memorization. Describe the molecular basis for macroscopic concepts (ex. Titration curves).

Organic Chemistry --> Significant time spent on rebuilding the inorganic chemistry foundation. Being able to utilize acid-base chemistry and equilibrium concepts help students with the intimidation factor of organic chemistry and with learning

GROUP RATES OFFERED AT DISCOUNT:

Although one-on-one instruction is optimal for most applications there are few exceptions where I would suggest working with a partner (maximum group of 3), particularly when learning biology, organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, and physics for the first time. Group rates can be offered for most situations, but if you are interested in learning any of the above subjects for the first time, it may be helpful to consider the small group dynamic!

Love that I feel involved with my daughter's sessions

I love that Victor keeps me in the loop with my daughter's tutoring sessions! He communicates his plans regarding the assignments he assigns to my daughter, and even suggested a game plan for the future. Also, I love that Victor can be easily contacted and shows up on time for every session. I'm really excited for my daughter to work with Victor consistently on a weekly schedule.

Excellent

Victor met with my daughter yesterday and was able to review the chemistry and show her how to do whatever she was struggling with. He showed her that she knew more than she realized, and he was really nice! We are so glad that we got her such a fine tutor!

Andrea, 2 lessons with Victor

Friendly but knowledgeable math tutor

I came to Victor last minute knowing nothing a week before my final for pre-calculus. In just a few lessons, he was able to teach me both the theory and high yield strategies for the entire syllabus. What made his tutoring different from my classes and what made it more interesting in the end was the way he correlated topics like limits and logarithms to things I am encountering now in calculus and biology. He is patient, a great motivator, and his affable personality makes it easy to express any questions I usually feel too reserved to ask.

Great tutor

Victor knows his Math. For anyone needing help you should know what I mean. I truly recommend Victor!

Efficient and Precise

I provided information to Victor prior to our having met. I have to take a test the Praxis II for High School math. Victor did an excellent job of analyzing the information I provided and highlighting the areas I needed to work on as well as provided insight into how I could break down the problems into a more simplistic fashion. The result was an ability on my part to really accelerate my understanding of the material and how to strategically work the problems. He also presented the problems in such a way that would simulate the test and test taking scenarios. I was very impressed and would highly recommend his services. Indeed, following our session together, a student a table over in the library immediately came over and introduced herself and asked if he would be able to provide tutoring for her physics exam. Victor was able to, gave her his number and informed her of the times he would be able to work with her. I think this is about as good a recommendation as one could give: clearly this student was impressed by his methods and abilities.

Excellent and very accomodating

Victor is an excellent tutor. He not only helped my daughter understand the subject matter, he also cultivated in her a love for Chemistry. Since our schedule is on a need be basis, whenever that need arises, Victor will find a way to help his student. There was a time when my daughter needed help for a test and Victor was in Taiwan on a vacation. He still found a way to help my daughter that time via skype. Very impressive. Not to mention very resourceful. But most importantly, he explains things clearly and in a way that his student can understand.

Great Teacher

Victor is a great Math teacher. He explains the problem thoroughly. I am pleased with his teaching method. My son took few classes with him and I can see the improvement in his SAT.

Darlin, 7 lessons with Victor

MCAT

Victor is a talented tutor. He was very efficient in his teaching methodology and very knowledgeable in his subject area. We were fortunate to have found a tutor of his caliber. Unfortunately, more time will be required on this end to prepare properly. Therefore, we have postponed tutoring and test temporarily.
