About Anton

I specialize in tutoring high school, college, and adult students in finance, economics, accounting, mathematics, and other subjects related to business and finance. I am particularly effective in helping students prepare for tests and exams in a short period of time.

I have more than 5 years of teaching and tutoring experience, and have developed effective methods of working with my students. I started tutoring when I was in high school, and worked as a teaching assistant during college. After working in various roles in the financial services industry, I attended graduate school at UCLA Anderson School of Management, and later worked as an adjunct professor of business at Sierra Nevada college for 1 year, teaching Principle of Microeconomics and Principles of Management. Now I work in financial services and tutor on the side because I really enjoy teaching.

I have active Series 7 and Series 66 financial licences.

I received my undergraduate degree in Economics with 3.9 GPA from University of Maryland College Park and graduate degree UCLA. I scored in the top 10% on GMAT.

During my years of studying I had the privilege to observe and to learn from some of the best professors in the world. I borrowed from their teaching styles and techniques, and strive to achieve their level of teaching excellency.

My years of studying and teaching have given me an opportunity to develop a set of principles that guide my teaching and comprise my teaching philosophy:

1. Individual attention and availability to my students. I make sure my students understand the material and I make myself available to answer questions or make clarifications.

2. Active learning. The most effective way to learn is through active participation and discovery. Instead of lecturing at students, as happens a lot in classrooms, I lead students on a journey of discovery, where they learn by doing, observing, and reasoning, thereby not only mastering the subject matter, but also developing their critical thinking skills.

3. Intellectual authority and enthusiasm for the subject. For students to learn effectively, they have to be absolutely confident that their teacher is an expert on the subject. And to maintain students' interest, the teacher must be passionate about the subject matter.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
