I highly recommend Vladimir as a Math tutor because of his ability to slow down and make it clear what is being covered in class. He will take you to the next letter grade and then help you to truly understand what you are learning. He has a methodical math approach and a vast knowledge of mathematics that makes him a valuable resource. I have spent numerous hours working with him to get an A in calculus, he has helped me learn everything and unlike most students feel I can use what I'm learning better and more effectively. I don't recommend cramming for math test but if you work with him regularly he will help you truly understand the subject you are struggling in. If Its worth knowing its worth knowing well, he can help you find your mistakes and then has experience in correcting them so you don't make them on test. He's also a very nice man, who is very level headed and if you just cant get it will keep working until he feels he has made it clear to you, a valuable tool in learning something most teacher never do in class or in there offices hours. All in all I recommend him to any student at any level trying to get a better grade, while actually learning more, and even becoming interested in something many call a boring subject.

Mariana was very concerned about meeting my daughter's needs at the tutoring session. My daughter had never been tutored in Chemistry, but had many questions when reviewing for an exam and requested a tutor. Mariana went to great lengths to get topics in advance so that she could bring appropriate study examples. She truly cared about preparing my daughter for the exam, and did a great job.
