Vikram definitely knows his stuff when it comes to derivatives. He has helped me a great deal and clearly works very hard and enjoys teaching. He has also thought long and deep about the concepts and ways to clearly communicate them. Definitely recommend!
Really positive lesson, flexible and informative. Provided good strategies and advice tips.
Vikram is an excellent tutor with vast knowledge of the CFA curriculum. His love for teaching makes him one of the most helpful tutors I have ever met. Based on the short time I've spent with him so far, I would highly recommend his services for those hoping to successfully pass their CFA. Thanks Vikram!
Vikram has been a wonderful tutor with great experience in accounting and has definitely helped beyond what I had expected. Also, an awesome individual with many talents in teaching the material thoroughly to a student. I would always recommend him to others and also look forward to further classes for other subjects.
Vikram is very knowledgable about the CFA curriculum and explains the topics in an way that's easy to follow and understand. Would highly recommend him as a tutor to anyone else looking for help in finance or studying for the CFA.
Vikram is smart, adaptable and easy to work with. He communicates well. We often negotiated on location which was convenient for me. We started from scratch and he was patient in teaching me theory and practical lessons. I highly recommend him as a tutor and I am open to acting as a reference at any point. Thanks Mate!
I have only had accouple of session with Vikram. He is an intelligent individual !!! He helps give me a better understand of the materials in my course. I have nothing but good things to say about him, I know working with him will help guide me in the right direction to passing my exam !!! I would recommend Vikram to everyone !!!
Vikram was essential in helping me prepare for Level 1 of the CFA Examination. Vikram's extensive academic and work background made him a subject matter expert, which was displayed by his concrete command of the material. I was thoroughly impressed by Vikram's ability to turn complex topics into basic ideas that were simple to grasp. Furthermore, his calm demeanor and gentle nature fostered a great learning environment where I wasn't intimidated or embarrassed to ask even the simplest of questions. I would highly recommend Vikram to anyone looking to achieve academic success!
Vikram is an amazing tutor. Not only is his knowledge of the CFA curriculum and the exam breakdown great, but his love for teaching is demonstrated through his use of simple examples to break down complex subject matter and ensure the student understands the concept before moving on to another topic. He goes through each chapter explaining it as a whole and highlighting the key points/concepts/formulas you need to extract from each section instead of the student always having to come prepared with specific questions. I will definitely be using him again for Level 2 and 3!
Vikram is a great tutor, very clear, concise and uses great real-life examples to aid in understanding. I passed the stats exam with only a few sessions from him!
Vikram's knowledge is vast and versatile. I had initially used his services to pass accounting and then was able to use his services to pass a Marketing Metrics exam. He has a lot of patience to work through difficult problems, and he understands what the questions on the exam are going to look like. Definitely recommend!
He is an excellent tutor. We study economics and I understand everything he teaches. He makes hard and complicated things easy to understand. Highly recommended!
Vikram is just very knowledgeable of Finance pretty much in all aspects. I used his help with Derivatives which is not the simplest finance around and he was incredibly helpful not only with my assignment but with the fundamentals. I probably learned more from his couple sessions than with my own professor who is obviously smart and educated on the subject but with very little pedagogy. I would definitely recommend him for ANY LEVEL of Finance if you're looking forward being successful with your exams/assignments but also really understand the material for future references.
Vikram is a great tutor. I passed my finance exam and did well with this help. Would recommend.
Vikram was a great tutor - very professional and accommodating. He is extremely knowledgeable about the CFA curriculum and was very comprehensive in his lesson plans. He took extra time to ensure I had a complete, fundamental understanding of the concepts. Definitely recommended!
Excellent tutor, quickly summarized the chapters I needed to go over and explanained the concepts better than either the professor or text could.
Really good at teaching, makes me understand concept (mindblown every time!), and keeps me on my toes!
Vikram was very helpful with prep for the level 3 CFA examination. He was flexible with meeting dates and times and always ready to help out on email outside of our sessions if I had questions. Vikram breaks down concepts so that you really understand the material, rather than just understanding a sample exam question. I highly recommend.
Hi, Vikram is more then a regular teacher, fair to say he is a genius when it comes to Math or anything related to it. He truly had a passion for Math, Finance and Accounting. He taught me cost and managerial accounting, I never learned anything in my class everything I learned was from Vikram. Its true you get what you pay for. Thank you Vikram.If you don't comprehend a certain concept he will keep trying with different strategies till you get it and is very patient.
Vickram is amazing, he can clearly explain concepts very well. I recommend anyone that is in need of a tutor for finance or accounting courses to seek him. He is rate is competitive, and he makes the best out of the sessions. His teaching skills rivals that of my professors, which is very hard to find. I have taken him for intermediate accounting one and two. I will be also going to him for finance courses (FIN401) Suganyaaa
Vikram is a great tutor! He helped me out on my Accounting course. He explains the concepts and fundamentals very well, he is a very patient teacher, most importantly he has a passion for teaching, he truly enjoys what he does. I recommended him to a few of my friends too!
Mr. Vikram is a great tutor who has a deep understanding of Finance. His explanations are very insightful. He has a lot of patience and doesn't get tired of teaching because this is something he is truly passionate about. I have learned more from him than I have in class.
Vikram simplified concepts for me and helped me work through a number of problem sets in advance of my midterm. He took the time to break down problems in a way that my prof just couldn't. Really appreciate your support Vikram!
great and very knowledgeable tutor! He helped me a lot with my economics materials and now I am understanding and solving it better! Also, he is really hardworking, patient and explains concepts very clear and professionally!
I am a second year university student. I just started working with Vikram two weeks to prepare for my statistics test. He helped me a lot with breaking complex concepts into basic concepts simply by giving examples I can relate to in real life. I really admire his well- organized teaching style as he always has a clear idea on how to deliver topics. After a couple of Statistics classes with him, I have decided to have him guided me in my Economics class as well. I can guarantee you that Vikram can make you have clear understandings on your subject with the least amount of time and financial investment!!
He is the best. I have worked with other tutors but never was satisfied as I was with vikram. I will definitely hire him again.
vikram, explained the concepts in a very clear way. He is very professional and approachable. He is way better than university tutors and capable of teaching in a university!! Very patient and explained all the accounting concepts in my own pace so I can understand and relate to what I study. Without his guidance and coaching I would have not passed my exam. Down to earth professor. He is flexible when it comes to timings. Many a times he has tailored notes for me to explain concepts. I will highly recommend him for every university student or any student for that matter to approach if in need of a tutor. Great value for the money you spend. I am taking his guidance for rest of my course. MONEY WELL SPENT !! Thanks a ton Vikram.

Vikram taught me CFA level 1, and has an outstanding amount of knowledge on all the subject matter. More important then his grasp on the material is his passion and teaching ability.
