Dear Mr. Madorsky,
I just wanted to tell
you that a couple of weeks ago I took a test to get into
a school in NYC and I actually got into my first choice,
Stuyvesant High School! The test consisted of two parts:
a verbal part and a math part. My scaled score was 711
out of 800 and usually the cutoff to get into this
school is around 560. I know that I could not have done
so well on the test without taking your classes. Thank
you so much for being my math teacher all those years!
Your RSM classes really paid off for me and still
continue to do so in my Trigonometry/Algebra 2 class
started taking classes at the RSM, math class was a huge
challenge for me. Very soon after joining a class, I
could see significant improvement in my understanding of
math concepts. The teachers at the RSM teach us how to
understand, rather than just memorize. They take time to
make sure everybody can follow the class and they
address individual needs of each student. If I hadn't
started taking these classes, I would still be
struggling in my regular math class at school just like
many of my peers are now. I also feel more confident
about future exams and classes I will take. Thank you,
Mr. and Mrs. Madorsky for all the help you have given me
and all the hard work and dedication you put into
and Mrs Madorsky, Leonid and Inna,
First of all,
we would like to thank you and the RSM for your great
work teaching our daughter Sophia Sagandyk, your former
2008-2010 student. As you might remember, we had to move
from Louisville to Washington DC area due to job
It's been a
long and busy year for all of us, especially for Sophia.
Luckily we moved to one of the best school districts in
the country. And we were thrilled when Sophia
successfully passed the test for "Gifted and Talented in
Mathematics". Now she is a 5 th grade student studying
the 7 th grade Math. As professional mathematicians
ourselves, we have no doubt that the RSM played the
greatest role in Sophia's achievement.
We are also willing to express our great
appreciation of your work to the RSM headquarters in
Boston. What is the best way to do so? We can contact
Many of our
new friends constantly ask us about the RSM. It's been a
while since we talked with you last time. Are there any
plans of opening an RSM branch in DC area now?

thank you for the Graduation Party for our Russian
Class. I think it was very good organized and well done.
Natalya Vasil'evna is a amazing teacher and person.
I wish we continue these efforts of teaching our kids

Attached please find
Sophia's school reports for 2008 and 2009. There is significant
progress in her math scores, which in our opinion can be
attributed to her and your hard work in the past year at our
Russian School of Mathematics in Louisville.

Леонид! (извините, не знаю отчества)
Только что прочитал Ваше интервью в запоздавшей Чайке
и хочу выразить Вам свои добрые чувства и удовлетворение
по поводу той работы, которую Вы успешно ведете. Я и
раньше неоднократно слышал много хорошего о Вас от
моего коллеги и многолетнего друга Гдалия Григорьевича
Сигалова. Полностью согласен с Вашими оценками здешнего
школьного образования (через него прошли мои внуки),
думаю, что Вы еще эти оценки сильно смягчили. Очень жаль,
что мои внук и внучка, ребята несомненно способные, в
свое время не имели возможности посещать школы, подобные
Всего Вам самого хорошего, здоровья и успехов.
The RSM is the best gift I
have ever given to my kids. Their mathematical skills are light
years above their peers and Mr. & Mrs. Madorsky have always gone the
extra mile for all of my children and treat each child as an
individual with the utmost respect.
In today's world only
kids who are able to compete and excel in science will succeed. Math
is building block of any science but kids often struggle with math
concepts at school. RSM Louisville provides our children with
knowledge of math that public and often even private school is
unable to deliver. RSM Lousville makes math easy for kids because it
teaches to understand math concepts rather than to memorize them.

We�re very satisfied with a Math program your school uses for
teaching our kids. That program uses variety of logic and algebra
problems along with some geometric problems. We think it lets our
kids to develop knowledge in different math aspects. Also our kid is
not bored with a math home work since he needs not only to do some
calculations but also to solve interesting problems. He can�t wait
for a next math lesson. We recommend RSM School classes to all kids

My daughter Masha has been
attending RSM math class since September 2004. This was the first
time that she has accepted any extra-curriculum learning activity
without frustration and tears. She gained so much confidence in
herself. Never again has Masha cried over complex homework tasks
from her middle school. Learning in a very friendly and demanding
environment has moved her to the higher math educational level then
any public school teacher could even dream. Leonid Madorsky, RSM's
class teacher, undoubtedly has the knowledge and teaching talent
that allows him to use an individualized and systematic approach in
passing new knowledge and ability to comprehend complex concepts to
My son, Prov started
attending math classes instructed by Leonid Madorsky about three
months ago. Since then, I have noticed Prov's increased interest and
excitement in learning math. He has become more confident and is way
ahead of his classmates at his regular school Eliahu Academy . I
believe that this program is ideal for not only general knowledge of
math but also exposes the kids to necessary SAT and ACT testing
material early. The classes are also set in a great social
environment and my son has been able to make new friends, making him
much more eager to attend the classes. I hope that the school will
grow, so that more kids could benefit from the program. Thank you.
It's been a few months
since my daughter, Eliza, started your program. My daughter has
struggled with math in middle school and at the same time isn't
challenged enough. She gets frustrated with homework and has low
self esteem. RSM offered her a personalized program for what she
needed to learn concepts in mathematics necessary for school and
to prepare for standardized tests, such as the SAT and ACT. This
program is customized to help my child develop skills to master new
challenges with confidence.

I am the parent of a
student who has made a tremendous improvement since he started to
participate in the RSM program. First of all, his attitude changed
in favor of getting good grades in school and he started to
understand that the knowledge he is getting will help him to get
into a good college and will eventually help him to achieve his long
term goals. Meanwhile, he has gone to being an "A" and "B" student
this year from "F" and "U" student last year. He has also passed the
Advance Program Placement test. I highly recommend RSM for your
Thank you! We had a great time at picnic, you did a great job!
Today, Christopher's teacher at school was telling me how advance he is in Math! Thanks to you!
Great Program! You all are very professional without being cold
or distant. The techniques you've developed, especially for the
younger kids, are terrific. It's so awesome that they are learning algebra
at their age (elementary school)!
All the best for continued success!
I had the
Regional Science Fair. I just wanted to let you know that I won!! I
got 1st place, which is pretty cool. My project was in microbiology,
testing pH Levels of different solutions. During my presentation, a
judge asked me to explain something very specific about the pH scale
and how it is used, which off the top of my head to be honest.. I
didn't know the answer to. I started talking about how it is related
to logarithms, and thought about what we learned about logs in RSM.
I sort of answered to the judges with a guess, and ended up being

RSM classes help me focus on
math. We get individual attention because the class is much smaller
than at my regular school. When we have individual attention, we can
Masha Titievsky Math class has been enjoyable and
educational at the same time. I like these classes because I feel
like I am becoming much better than my classmates in my regular
school. I have noticed that I understand more concepts and know a
lot more since the 1st day. These classes are especially preparing
me to do well on the SAT and ACT. I know this is good for my future.
The RSM school has made me be more confident in my math skills and
has pushed me to a higher level of knowledge of math. I think that
it�s a great program for people who want to have a good educational
future and go to a great college. I used to struggle in math but
figured out that the math I was doing at school just wasn�t
challenging me enough. At RSM, I am not only taught at my own speed,
but I feel that I am really being challenged.
RSM helps me with math and reading comprehension, preparing me for
the SAT and ACT. I have grown more confidence in myself and it has
really shown in school. I know that I have more knowledge then some
of the other students in my class at school. I know in high school,
it will be much easier for me. I have made great new friends that I
can relateto and talk to whenever I need. I love the RSM school and
I think that anyone that wants to get into a good college should
I just want to say thank you for having your RSM classes.
It might not seem like it at times, but they really do help me. I felt very confident the day I took the SAT. Before RSM I was so
overwhelmed of what I hadn't learned. your classes really do help and when they start up again, I will try even harder! Great year!
See your see you at camp!
Thank you for the help this year, it has meant a great deal to me.
I actually got a 100 percent on my math portion of the ACT. If I need any further help in math, then I will definitely contact
RSM. Again, thank you so much, I appreciate the help.
