    Testimonials

    • "Excellent SAT Tutor! Victoria has been incredibly patient and effective in helping my daughter, who was struggling with practicing for the SAT test. She is calm, organized and very knowledgeable, which helped my daughter navigate the challenging test preparation, while keeping her on track with both practice and review materials. Victoria was able to advise my daughter on the best test strategies, breaking down concepts so she was soon able to master even complex problems. She is well versed in all math areas, including Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Probability and Statistics. She has been very supportive of my daughter and helped her increase her confidence level. After working with Victoria, my daughter felt for the first time confident in her ability to focus and perform well on the test. My daughter especially appreciated that Victoria took the time to carefully prepare materials and to tailor test preparation to meet her level and to gradually work through the different topics. She is exceptionally well prepared and was very effective in helping my daughter progress through even the most complex topics to not only improve test results, but also to gain skills for studying and mastering new concepts. We are very grateful that my daughter had the opportunity to work with Victoria. I highly recommend Victoria as an amazing tutor!" - Ioana B.

    • "Awesome and Knowledgeable Math Tutor! Victoria is an excellent math teacher. In addition to her subject expertise, she understands middle schoolers and how to teach them. Our son was struggling to keep up his A grade in Geometry. Working with Victoria enabled him to more fully grasp the concepts and how to approach problems. Since he started working with her he has scored an A on every test, including a perfect 100 on his last one. He really looks forward to his lessons with her. Recently he successfully got to TJ School with her help and he continues to take all math lessons with Victoria during high school as well. We heartily recommend Victoria for any student seeking assistance in math." - Philip M.
