About Atanas

I was born in Bulgaria, but have lived in Lexington for over 15 years. I am a recent graduate of the University of Kentucky. I graduated summa cum laude in Psychology, with a focus on philosophy and literature. I am also proficient in the hard sciences; I graduated from the Math, Science, and Technology Center of Paul Laurence Dunbar High School.

I specialize in tutoring Math and English independently, or tailored for the ACT, SAT, or GRE. I believe that a tutor should be able to present complex ideas in simple and interesting terms. Even the most difficult subject matter can be made simple, as long as the higher-level concepts are built on a strong foundation. My approach is to ensure that students feel comfortable with the basics, and then build from there.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Looking forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your goals!

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.

Very Patient, Caring Tutor — My daughter has difficulties with math. Atanas was very patient with her, constantly giving her words of encouragement.
