About Atanas

Born in Bulgaria; raised in Lexington.

My family moved here fifteen years ago, and I was enrolled in Julius Marks starting in the 2nd grade. I was accepted into the Magnet program at JR Ewan in the 5th grade, and continued through the Magnet program at Winburn Middle School. In 2010, I graduated from the Math, Science, and Technology Center at Dunbar in the top 1% of over 500 students.

In 2014, I graduated from the University of Kentucky Summa Cum Laude with a B.A. in Psychology, with a focus on philosophy and literature. I'm currently back at UK's School of Engineering for a degree in Computer Science; I expect to graduate Fall 2018.

I'm proud and very, very lucky to say that I love my job, so much so that I've been tutoring professionally for almost 3 years. But my passion for teaching actually started long before that... I've been helping friends and classmates with school for so long it's probably been since before CentreHole.

I 've tutored Math (prealgebra, algebra, geometry, algebra 2, precalc, calc, calc 2), Stats, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Psychology, Philosophy, History, Grammar, Writing, English, Spanish, ACT, SAT, GRE, ASVAB, and Chess. I've worked with students on the remedial, general, advanced, and AP/IB levels. I've taught kindergarteners as well as grad students.

I'm uniquely qualified to help students reach their potential in a wide number of fields because of my academic successes, and more importantly, failures, in fields from Classics to Calc 3 to Creative Writing. And due to my extensive experience teaching concepts of all types and difficulties to students of all ages and personalities, I'm confident in my ability to effectively teach anyone willing to learn.

Of course, everyone and every situation is different, but the core of my approach is ensuring that the student is comfortable with the fundamentals of the subject matter, and then buliding from there. By starting with the simple and progressing gradually, even the most complex of ideas can become clear and engaging.

Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Looking forward to working with you.

One of the best tutors we have ever had!

I have four children and over the years, we have had numerous tutors in many subjects. Atanas has been one of the best we have ever had. He is extremely knowledgeable with Algebra (really all math) and chemistry. He is prompt and most importantly he relates to my son.
