About Anton

Teaching is my passion.

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 am back to working in financial services at Bank of America and tutoring on the side because I really enjoy it.

I received my undergraduate degree in Economics with 3.9 GPA from University of Maryland College Park and graduate degree in Business Administration from 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 education, 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 passionately interested in the material being taught.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
