Masters of Education Graduate with Mathematics Expertise
I graduated from University of Massachusetts Boston with an M.Ed. in LTET in 2012. I have heard many times how many in America are struggling in mathematics, a subject that I consider to be extremely important, and a lot of fun. In late middle school and during high school, I started helping students in mathematics. My cousin Stan was my first client and by the time he entered college, I helped him get an A in first year calculus. I also helped many other students at Brookline High School...
I graduated from University of Massachusetts Boston with an M.Ed. in LTET in 2012. I have heard many times how many in America are struggling in mathematics, a subject that I consider to be extremely important, and a lot of fun. In late middle school and during high school, I started helping students in mathematics. My cousin Stan was my first client and by the time he entered college, I helped him get an A in first year calculus. I also helped many other students at Brookline High School achieve better grades and helped coach the school mathematics team. My strategy was to guide the students through problems and require students to give it the best shot and not to give up. We all know what it's like when a student simply shows us a math problem and immediately asks for a solution. I also believe that students need a chance to explore concepts as this can not only help them recall concepts that they forgot, but also discover new ones on their own.
I participated in the Brookline High School Math team from 1999 to 2001, attended the HMMT competition three times and was in the ARML team. During my senior year, I scored a 5 (Extremely well qualified) on the AP test in Calculus. I am also an alumnus of PROMYS which is a high school summer program in mathematics at Boston University in which the central subject was Number Theory. When I was an undergraduate student, I took a lot of science courses and participated in the Putnam competition, in which I got a 32, one of the highest scores of any students in my college. Our Putnam coach included one of the Putnam problems as extra credit in his discrete math final exam because of the solution that I came up with and later explained during the break.
Roman has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering 768 questions submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.
Roman had several math lessons with my son and we are intended to have many more lessons with him. Roman is very knowledgeable and intelligent. The lessons are very interactive and clear. My son's confidence is going up dramatically and after just few lessons we have our first excellent grade on the quiz: 96. We are very happy with Roman and highly recommend him to any potential student.Elena, 76 lessons with Roman
Excellent Calc & Physics Tutor
Roman is fantastic for HS Calculus and Physics. He works with our daughter in breaking down the question, approaching with standard solutions, and then offers alternative and efficient ways to solve as well. Every lesson she leaves feeling more confident in her ability to tackle complex issues in Calc and Physics. I highly recommend Roman.Jeffrey, 13 lessons with Roman
Great Algebra 1 tutor
Roman really helped my son understand some concepts he was having trouble with. He was very patient and explained things in a way that my son could understand.Margaret, 12 lessons with Roman
Maths competition prep
Always helpful and responsive. Accommodates students needs. On time and flexible. Good disposition. Comfortable to work with. Uses examples to assist in the teaching. Speaks clearly and can be well understood.Asok, 52 lessons with Roman
Detail oriented and takes time to help my son with advanced math. He is always on time and when needed provides the additional time until my son understands and resolves the problem by himself.Biswarup, 40 lessons with Roman
Roman has worked with our daughter, who is very dyslexic and has been struggling with math, over the last academic year, and she got the top score on her math final in school! Roman is always patient and per our daughter explains things very clearly. We plan to continue with him through the next year.Elisabeth, 126 lessons with Roman
Super Smart & a Great Teacher
My son is having a lot of trouble in his accelerated math class this year. We had actually had another tutor come check out his homework and say that it was too advanced and that they could not help us! Roman never hesitated - he definitely knows his stuff! He is excellent at explaining math and my son is so much more confident now. Within a week of starting to work with Roman he is all caught up and ready to tackle the next unit (with Roman's help, of course). Highly recommend.Rebecka, 15 lessons with Roman
Knowledgeable and patient math tutor
My son's understanding of math greatly improved since he is working with Roman; he has a strong A now. Roman is patient, and has real passion for math. Would highly recommend.Julia, 36 lessons with Roman
Roman is helping me with my math skills for my Junior year of high school and prep for SAT. He is knowledgeable, thorough and patient. Roman helps me to stay focused to achieve my goals for high school and upcoming college.Emily, 73 lessons with Roman
I was having difficulty with my linear algebra homework. Roman was very patient and explained clearly linear equations and row reduction of matrices. He was very thorough with his explanation and made sure that I understood the concept before moving on to the next topic.Alexandra, 1 lesson with Roman
