My favorite subjects for tutoring are: Applied Stats and R, Visualization with R including shiny, Tableau, DBMS, SQL, Microsoft Access, MySQL and all subjects in Math.
I have great teaching as well as software development experience and can help my students to succeed in aforementioned subjects.

I studied Math at highly regarded universities in Russia. I graduated Cum Laude and then made PhD in Math. After graduating from the university, I started working in software industry progressing from software engineer to software architect where I worked for 20+ years. During this period, I taught different courses in math and computer subjects at colleges and universities part time.

Till recently I worked as Associate Professor in Math and Management Information Systems at University where I taught College Algebra, Finite Mathematics, Database Management Systems (DBMS), SQL, Data Visualization, Tableau, Management and Development Information Systems, and Quantitative Methods for Business and Finance Management. I am also familiar with Microsoft Access DBMS.

I work as a math tutor at specialized math school Engaging Math Circles where I teach Prealgebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Precalculus and Math SAT courses.

I adopt Art of Problem Solving philosophy that students develop more by learning to solve problems they haven’t seen before, as opposed to offering repeated drills that students can memorize their way through and I extensively use online resources like interactive textbooks from Art of Problem Solving, Khan Academy and other.

I love to see my students progress and success and therefore I adjust course content, complexity and pace for each student individually according to his/her level that I am assessing prior to starting to teach a course.

It is important to organize learning process properly such that students and their parents aware about all homework assignments, their due time, grades and progress. For managing my courses I use Learning Management Systems like Schoology or Canvas.

Computer Programming

For more than 40 years I worked as software engineer, architect and development manager contributing on all stages of software life cycle including product requirements, definition, design, data modeling, prototyping, implementation, testing and maintenance. During my software development career I mastered and used many programming languages, including C, C++, Java, SQL and some other. While working in software industry almost every year I taught part time courses at many colleges and universities in former USSR and other countries.
Microsoft Access,

Microsoft Access

I am teaching Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMS) at Lincoln University for many years. Microsoft Access is one of many implementations of RDBMS that has intuitive user interface and ease of use. Microsoft Access is an information management tool that helps user store information for reference, reporting, and analysis. Microsoft Access also helps analyze large amounts of information, and manage related data more efficiently than Microsoft Excel or other spreadsheet applications.

UNIX

I have hands-on experience on Unix core code. When I worked at Intel I've implemented several projects related to Unix system calls. Then for several years I taught OS courses in a college where Unix was the primary example of OS functionalities. During my 20+ year career as a software developer and architect I was involved in a development of PDM / PLM systems in Unix environment.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Introduction to Algebra 1 covers exponents and radicals, linear equations and inequalities, ratio and proportion, systems of linear equations, quadratics, and complex numbers. This course is specifically designed for high-performing students and draws material from many programs for top middle and high school students in the country. This course is structured much more like courses at top-tier colleges. Book: Introduction to Algebra, Chapters 1-13, by Richard Rusczyk
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 covers quadratic equations, graphing, complex numbers, functions, sequences and series, and exponents and logarithms. Problem solving skills are emphasized throughout, and time is devoted to advanced topics like telescoping sums and piecewise functions. This course is specifically designed for high-performing students and draws material from many programs for top middle and high school students in the country. This course is structured much more like courses at top-tier colleges. Book: Introduction to Algebra, Chapters 10-22, by Richard Rusczyk

SAT Math

SAT Math

Summary This course is based on the Official SAT Practice Lesson Plans recommended by College Board for preparation to SAT exams Description The Official SAT Practice Lesson Plans are 16 Math lessons. The lessons leverage resources such as the Official SAT Study Guide (the big blue book) and Official SAT Practice on Khan Academy to foster a classroom learning experience that will extend to independent practice. Research shows that there is a positive relationship between score growth and time spent on Official SAT Practice. Twenty hours spent practicing on Official SAT Practice on Khan Academy is associated with an average 115-point score gain on the SAT - nearly double the average gain among students who did not use Official SAT Practice. The Math lessons focus on the four content domains (Heart of Algebra, Problem Solving and Data Analysis, Passport to Advanced Mathematics, and Additional Topics in Math) that evidence shows are most important for college and career success. The number of lessons per topic reflects the frequency with which that topic appears on the SAT. Homework each night will direct students to practice both the skills and concepts covered in the lesson as well as whichever skills are being recommended to them by Official SAT Practice. The learner progress will be evaluated by taking three official SAT Math practice tests (one each at the beginning, middle and the end of course). Not only will students get the experience of taking those tests, they will also get the benefit of even more personalized practice. What’s not included? The lessons designed to give students the opportunity to apply the skills and concepts they have learned in their English Language Arts and math courses to educator-led SAT practice (with plenty of opportunities for independent SAT practice!). The lessons were not designed to introduce new skills or provide remediation for students who have not yet acquired these skills.

Thorough and persistent at fixing code

Miron went above and beyond to make help me work through some R code and to help untangle code that was having some issues. He was wanted to make sure that I understood concepts and didn't just take short-cuts without fully understanding them

Jaclyn, 1 lesson with Miron

Very helpful

Helped me with an R-Studio HW assignment going over basic linear regression and how to wrangle data.

Peter, 1 lesson with Miron

Detailed

Helped me with R and RStudio and statistics. We worked though a lab I had for my statistics class that was to be completed through RStudio. We went through each question and he showed me how to complete.

Rowan, 1 lesson with Miron

Very Knowledgable!

Miron helped me work through areas I was having difficulty with using RStudio using Base R, ggplot2, and leaflet, showing me multiple ways to parse and organize data to get the results I needed.

Casey, 1 lesson with Miron

Rstudio

Miron assisted with with setting up R studio and gaining a better understanding of rstudio. He did a good job with going through the application step by step. Miron also explained all 4 screens and although he hadn't used Rattle, he was still able to f I guess it out in a short period of time.

Marlon, 1 lesson with Miron

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Miron helped me look at my approach from a different angle and realize that there are changes that I must make to convey the message. We discussed the methodology and the different approaches that can be taken and weighed the pros and cons of each.
