Andreas has been very helpful in terms of teaching me how to think like a mathematician when approaching my schoolwork. He not only teaches you what you need to know to succeed on your exams, but he also will give you a deeper understanding of what you're doing. He's also extremely knowledgeable in many fields relating to math and computer science. After an hour with Andreas, I feel like a smarter person.

"Biology, AP Biology, Physics, Mathematics (Grades 7  12)"
I have been tutoring biology for six years and various subjects in math for over a decade. I have a true passion for learning and exploration in the hard sciences and want to convey to each and every student that while aspects of it may be challenging, the understanding of the world that comes from it is both beautiful and invaluable. I try to heavily focus on helping students answer their own questions to create interactions that allow them to experience for themselves, not merely witness, t... ... More

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.
