I have been teaching or tutoring during most part of my career, first tutoring job involved third and sixth graders who needed help with mathematics.

When I was a schoolboy, my classmates called me "our emergency helper" because of my ability to assist them and explain things clearly. I have been teaching or tutoring during most part of my career, first tutoring job involved third and sixth graders who needed help with mathematics. Then I tutored freshman students, later I became a graduate student and taught the section of physics laboratories for science majors for three years. During my postdoctoral appointment at Los Alamos, I tutored a student in physics for MCAT test. Twice I worked as an instructor at a summer camp at the Center for Talented Youth, Johns Hopkins University, teaching a group of middle-school students small physics-based courses, "Principles of Engineering Design" and "Nuclear Physics."

When teaching, I use student-oriented approach. It is my student, who determines the pace and the way of learning, I will use leading questions and encourage a student to ask his/her own questions to promote better understanding of the subject taught. I firmly believe that the best results are achieved when a person understands fundamental concepts and basic rules and is capable of applying them to problems. Such understanding helps a student to discover things himself, this ability empowers a student and builds his/her self-confidence. On the contrary, simple memorization of standard formulas and/or typical solutions is the way to bind yourself with the cords of dogmatism. I believe that I have skills and abilities to explain complex concepts in a simple and clear way and would like to help anyone, who is interested, achieve understanding and gain knowledge.

Fantastic and intelligent tutor. Has great potential towards tutoring. Really helped me learn the concepts of Geometry. I highly recommend Kirill as a tutor!

Andrew, 10 lessons with Kirill

Very Helpful

Kirill is a knowledgeable instructor who knows what he is talking about and has helped me understand the concepts of physics, although he does have a Russian accent which is hard to understand sometimes, regardless he is a fine instructor who can help anybody who is serious about learning.
