I’m a graduate student with a 3.9 GPA in Molecular, Cell, and Developmental Biology at UCLA, planning to pursue an MD/PhD in medical school. I’ve been tutoring math for four years, and it has brought me an enormous amount of joy. If your experience with math has been challenging, I'm here to help you break free from any negative labels associated with your learning abilities.

I would take great honor and pleasure in showing you how smart and capable you are, empowering you to shape your life the way you want,

Hire me because the effectiveness of my approach to teaching is validated regularly in my Physics classes at a private school here in Fremont, California. I do a quick assessment of each student's grasp of the subject matter by discussing the fundamentals. Then I would lead the student in a stepwise manner to get them up to speed as may be required. My teaching style encourages the student to take one or more paths to understanding the subject matter by adapting to the student's preferred learning style. I coach, mostly, and intervene, when necessary, with specific step-by-step exercises. The diversity of students, their various levels of com...

Reviews for Mountain View math tutors

Recent success stories from people in the Mountain View area.
David M.
Fedor tutored my daughter in Calculus this year. She was really struggling with the more advanced concepts and her grades were suffering. After just a few sessions with Fedor, her understanding improved immensely. He explains calculus concepts in a way that just clicks for her. She is now excelling in class thanks to the solid foundation he helped her build. Fedor is patient and wants his students to truly comprehend the material, not just memorize formulas. My daughter's confidence is through the roof thanks to his dedicated teaching and encouragement. I highly recommend Fedor for any student struggling with calculus. His tutoring makes a huge difference and gets results. 5 stars!
