I have a passion in sharing the knowledge and helping others to master new concepts. I am a full-time professional engineer for the last 6 years after graduating from the PhD Program in Chemistry at Rice University. In graduate school I had a lot of experience working as Teaching Assistant, Discussion Leader and Problem Solving Session Leader. I will be more than happy to help others to get on track with their education and to prepare them to face new academic and professional challenges.

I have been through multiple difficult math and physics classes myself and have a complete understanding of their challenges. The best teachers I ever had always encouraged the independent thinking and developed a diversity of methods to solve problems. The most important skill for a teacher is not to be able to present a solution for a problem or repeat the textbook knowledge, but to be able to reflect to himself the student's point of view and to see the problem with the student's eyes.

Individual guidance through the field of study is the key for the profound understanding of any complex subject, it encourages a student to go above and beyond in their studies and teaches the best skill one can learn - a skill to self-study.

I have experience with multiple GCC+/C++ Builder/Visual C++ creating 100% portable C++ code, with custom namespaces and complex class hierarchies using C++/STL for DOS/Windows/Unix. I learned it from Bjarne Stroustrup's classic book and I can help to learn best C++ practices and to get a student on the track to mastering C++.

Very, very good.

Nikolay is very smart and knowledgeable. He takes the time to explain the right way of doing things — and why they are the right way. He taught me a lot about Python in 2 hours.

Siew, 2 lessons with Nikolay

Great teacher

He is the best teacher! Very efficient! Really helpful. I think he is 2 to 3 times faster than other teachers. Thank you so much.

Ziyi, 3 lessons with Nikolay

He is awesome!

Wow, I am writing to let you know how much I benefited from and enjoyed to learning python concept from Mr. Nikolay. Thank you so much for clarifying this up for me in regards python. Your explanation is so much clearer. I'm very happy that I am learning a lot. Sometimes words cannot express our immense gratitude towards a person. Today I am facing short of words to express my immense love and respect that I have from you right from the time I appeared in your first session. I really thank you from the depth of my heart for being there. You were and you will be always my inspiration. To my happiness, all my fear vanished when I attended his first session. He had that spirit that brings the best out of me. You gave me the required motivation to move ahead in life. You taught to just work hard and appear in the exams without worrying about the results. It was just what a perfect mentor is all about.

Sultana, 33 lessons with Nikolay

Outstanding Tutor!!!

Nikolay is super knowledgeable and highly intelligent! He is well prepared and able to explain complex concepts well, he is very familiar with advanced math (graduate-school level) as well as the programming languages, and he knows how to translate massive project into simple things which student can easily understand. I REALLY like his way of teaching! Thank you, Nikolay!

Linda, 4 lessons with Nikolay

Great teacher!

Nikolay has an approach of explaining difficult subjects very simply. Very impressed by his teaching method. I understood what I could not get during my lectures at the lessons with this teacher.

Aisara, 7 lessons with Nikolay

Great Tutor!!

Nikolay is very knowledgable and explains concepts very well. My husband was stuck on a couple of labs in his networking class and now he understands them much better! We will definitely be keeping Nikolay's contact info for his next semester! Thank you!

Jennifer, 2 lessons with Nikolay

Highly intelligent, professional, and efficient tutor.

Nikolay is an outstanding tutor. His technical skills and intelligence are super. He quickly diagnosed and resolved my Linux scripting questions. Finally, he did an excellent job of explaining the concepts to me in terms I could understand. I highly recommend Nikolay.

Joel, 3 lessons with Nikolay

Knowledgable and nice tutor

He helped me debug some C++ codes. He's very familiar with C++ and also told me ways to improve my C++ coding. A very nice person to work with. Definitely a tutor I will go for next time.

Li, 3 lessons with Nikolay

Excellent tutor

Excellent Python language break down. He knows his stuff! I've had many tutors of the years, he has been the best by far. In our short time of working together, not only am I more confident in what I know, I'm excited. I can't express enough how great his patient and energy is.

Troy, 5 lessons with Nikolay

Excellent Tutor

Nikolay understood where I was struggling to help bring me back up to speed. He did an outstanding job of explaining both logic behind the problems and syntax that would complement solving the problem. For a beginner programmer, these things are very helpful.
