About Yuri

As a soon to be high school graduate, matriculating into NYU, I feel as though I've endured a fair share of grueling English classes. I plan on pursuing the Pre-Law track at NYU, hoping to one day land in a top Law School. I have taken an eclectic mix of rigorous classes during my last four years in high school, whose spread ranges from collegiate level Multivariable Calculus to Shakespearian literature. My absolute favorite extracurricular activity is Debate, and I am the current Debate Society President at my school. I have won several titles with my debate partner, at various tournaments around Connecticut, and have had the wonderful opportunity of debating in several different leagues.

As a child, I struggled academically and know first-hand what it feels like to sit in a class while academic topics whiz by. I have come to realize, however, that academic strategy and adjusting to your learning style, can greatly increase productivity as well as the quality of work. I wholeheartedly believe that adjusting one's study practices, such that they parallel the way one's mind learns, will greatly improve upon anyone's efficacy as a student.

I feel my rigorous debate background has tailored me into a person capable of seeing from different perspectives. This skill lends itself to tutoring, in that it facilitates a better understanding between the student and myself.

I attended a highly ranked boarding school in New England. At my school, I have exhausted the curriculum, having taken all AP's for the entirety of my senior year. Moreover, in certain subjects, I have exceeded the AP level courses, and have progressed into college-level classes offered at my school.

I have formerly tutored children in an exceptionally impoverished Chinese village (ages 5-12), and have also served as an after-school volunteer tutor, as a part of my school's Community service program, since freshman year.

Lastly, I have an absurdly headstrong younger sister in the 7th grade, and frequently help her with her homework.

I implore anyone interested to contact me, as I would be more than happy to provide more specific information regarding the help I can provide.

Feel free to contact me at any time, to schedule a session.

Thank you, and I wish everyone the best of luck on their endeavors.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Public Speaking

I have taken public speaking and argumentation classes in the past, and have gotten all A's. I am currently my school's Debate Captain, and have won tournaments across CT in the past. During the winter months, as captain, I run an after-school debate program in collaboration with our team's faculty advisor.

Smart and charming tutor. Wonderful!

Yuri is an excellent tutor. He has a way with my son, which is unparalleled by any other tutor. He has been tutoring my son for a long time, but has recently joined wyzant. He is incredibly patient, and explains things that would otherwise be complicated in a simple yet applicable way. I would recommend Yuri to anyone who wants a tutor who actually teaches, as opposed to someone who merely helps w
