I've been tutoring for the last four years. I worked as a college instructor, taught groups about art in a museum, worked with a number of education non-profits. I have a Master's degree in Fine Art and two Bachelor's degrees in Graphic Design and Commercial Photography. I am a member of The Society For Photographic Education. Moreover, I've been doing art for over 20 years. I speak English and Russian fluently.

I believe that every student is capable of learning. My goal is to allow them to reach their maximum potential by getting them interested in the subject, making them think, and teaching them in the style most comfortable for them. I enjoy helping students master the material and improve their grades.

My best reward is when my students get the grades and scores they need to achieve their dreams.

Thanks for reading about me! Check out the student feedback on my page, and feel free to reach out with any questions and comments. I hope to schedule a session with you soon!

Very knowledgeable and easy to understand.

Alexey gave me an intro to After Effects lesson as I was struggling with manipulating key frames after watching a YouTube lesson. He was fantastic. He showed me how to use the key frames to do a several different manipulations of text and graphics and then how to make the output file. He guided me with me sharing my screen and he was able to draw on the screen so he could point to controls easily. I got so much out of my hour. Definitely doing it again!

After effects lesson

Alex is a very knowledgeable instructor for Adobe after effects. He helped me with my project to create a lyric video from a template I purchased. He had me up and running and I was able to work on my own with the template after the lesson. I would definitely use Alex again as an instructor.

Excellent, knowledgable, patient, flexible, and fun tutor!

Alexey is awesome! He is very knowledgable, excellent at explaining even complex ideas, extremely patient and easy to work with, flexible with appointments, and so much fun! He is completely professional, but very relaxed, fun, and easy to learn with. He goes above and beyond, even spending time outside our appointment to find a solution to a tricky aspect of a project I was working on. His tutoring is worth any price, but you literally cannot do better at this price! HIGHLY recommend! Thank you, Alexey! looking forward to our next section!

Amazing tutor.

Alexey is extremely knowledgeable about AfterEffects and my daughter's so much enjoyed working with him and finally being able to do all of the cool animation effects that she's been seeing on the internet. She loves working with Alexey.
