## Excellent tutor!

Elena, 76 lessons with RomanRoman 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.

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...

Algebra 1,
#### Algebra 1

I helped many students in Algebra 1 in my high school and college years. I always loved studying mathematics and helping others make significant progress in it.
Many of my skills come from my participation in several mathematics Olympiads. I minored in math and physics in college. I also have a Master's degree in Secondary Mathematics Education.

Calculus,
#### Calculus

Differential/Integral calculus was co-invented by Isaac Newton and Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz in the 17th century, but the ideas leading up to it trace back to the ancients who invented the "Method of Exhaustion". Either way, the goal was always to solve practical problems, especially in physics and other sciences. Examples of questions that can be answered:
How much energy is needed to launch a 1000 ton shuttle into near-earth circular orbit? (Physics)
If you want to make an open rectangular box of maximum volume and have 10000 sq. cm. of cardboard to use, what should be the dimensions? (Optimization).
etc.
High school calculus covers the topics covered in the first two semesters of college calculus discipline and introduces you to the most fundamental concepts in the subject so you can answer questions such as these two and many more.
I took AP calculus (BC level) when I was a senior in high school and got my perfect 5. Since then I took more advanced courses in the subject and also took Physics all the way up to Quantum Mechanics.

Discrete Math,
#### Discrete Math

I have been exposed to Discrete Mathematics since early high school, and have used a lot during my undergraduate studies, most notably in context of computer science. My exposure to it included Combinatorics, Graph Theory, etc. There was also some coverage of cryptography near the end of a college level course.
As for the Number Theory, I was exposed most of the basic concepts from early middle school, and in high school, I attended PROMYS, which covered it at the college level. I haven't put Number theory to practical use very often, but did apply it during my college curriculum in math and computer science.
During my college education, I helped many students in both subjects. For Discrete Math, I sometimes like bringing up some of the areas of recreational mathematics (Games and Puzzles), since this is the most natural way to get the students interested.

Linear Algebra,
#### Linear Algebra

In Linear Algebra, linear equations, matrices, vector spaces, and linear transformations are studied. Although a few concepts, such as solving linear equations dates back to the ancients, a number of important matrix concepts like determinants and eigenvalues/eigenvectors were developed more recently and gave rise to the modern areas of the subject.
Examples of applications:
1. Systems of linear equations occur when using Kirchhoff's laws in Physics to solve for currents/resistances in electric circuits.
2. Matrix transformations are used extensively by computer graphics systems. For example OpenGL makes extensive use of vectors and matrices to render objects in 2D/3D.
3. In classical Mechanics the principal rotation axes of a body are parallel to the eigenvectors of the moment of inertia tensor (3 by 3 matrix "I" in this case). In a motor, for example, if the axis of rotation is not principal, vibration occurs which can damage the system. That's because the angular momentum (L=Iw) and angular velocity (w) are not alligned with each other.
I took the course as an undergraduate and was one of the best students in the class. Since then, I helped a number of students with this subject during my college studies. In doing so, I emphasized applications of the concepts so that the students are aware of the subject's importance and can grasp the concepts more easily.
I also applied it both in my science classes and outside of school including programming some geometry-based applications including one written in OpenGL.

Logic,
#### Logic

I took mathematical logic during my undergraduate education. The topics included boolean algebra, theorem proving via rules of inference, and later, equation logic. Part of the curriculum revolved around proving certain major results, including the completeness theorem for boolean algebra, and the compactness theorem. I helped a number of students with solving logic problems. I emphasize the fact that practicing logic strengthens one's ability to think in many different school disciplines. I also mention that solving many puzzles, which many of us like doing in our spare time, requires logical thought.

## 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.

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, 87 lessons with Roman

## Patient tutor

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

## Great tutor!

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.

## 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.
