About Atanas


Bio

First off, a bit about me: I was born in Bulgaria but have lived here in Lexington over fifteen years. I attended Julius Marks Elementary, Winburn Middle, and Paul Laurence Dunbar High School, where I also graduated from MSTC (the Math, Science and Technology Center).

I'm currently a Computer Science Major and Math Minor at the University of Kentucky's School of Engineering, expecting to graduate December 2018 with a 3.9 GPA. This is my second degree; I graduated Summa Cum Laude from UK...

First off, a bit about me: I was born in Bulgaria but have lived here in Lexington over fifteen years. I attended Julius Marks Elementary, Winburn Middle, and Paul Laurence Dunbar High School, where I also graduated from MSTC (the Math, Science and Technology Center).

I'm currently a Computer Science Major and Math Minor at the University of Kentucky's School of Engineering, expecting to graduate December 2018 with a 3.9 GPA. This is my second degree; I graduated Summa Cum Laude from UK with a B.A. in Psychology, with a focus on philosophy and literature.

I've tutored for over three years now, and have worked with students on Math (prealgebra, algebra, geometry, algebra 2, precalculus, calculus, linear algebra), Stats, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Social Sciences, 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 worked with kindergarteners as well as grad students.

Of course, each student and situation is unique, but the core of my approach is to ensure that the student is comfortable with the fundamentals of the subject matter, and then building from there. By starting with the simple and progressing gradually, even the most complex ideas become clear.

Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Looking forward to helping you reach your potential.

Knowledgeable and approachable tutor

My 14-year-old son learned a lot in the hour Atanas worked with him. Great first lesson. Our son is looking forward to feeling more confident in class and feels more in control of his grade now.

Jennifer, 11 lessons with Atanas

Impressive, outstanding tutor

My son had the pleasure of working with Atanas as his Algebra 2 tutor for the fall semester. Atanas is a fantastic tutor. His knowledge of the subject is outstanding, but more impressive is his ability to meet the student where he/she is and advance their mastery of the material. His ability to teach complex material is very good. Atanas also communicates well with parents and provides feedback after each session about the student's progress. I cannot say enough good things about working with Atanas. Atanas is flexible, knowledgeable and does everything in his power to rearrange is own schedule to work with the student before tests or quizzes. Overall, again, very, very impressive and a pleasant personality as well.

Tricia , 10 lessons with Atanas

Great Tutor!

I needed someone to work with me to prepare for the quantitative reasoning part of the GRE and Atanas was extremely helpful. He is very knowledgeable about math concepts and great at explaining things, especially when I needed something explained more than once or in a different way. He was also great at coming up with new problems when I had trouble grasping certain concepts. Highly recommend!

Madelyn, 8 lessons with Atanas

Wonderful tutor!

My daughter is in her senior year and taking a dual credit course, Atanas has been invaluable in helping her succeed in the class. He is very patient and knowledgeable and encourages her to attempt to solve problems on her own, providing guidance when needed. We have seen significant improvements!

Almeta , 6 lessons with Atanas

Knowledgeable and an Excellent Tutor

We tried many ACT Science tutors, Atanas is the best. My kids like his teaching style and the fact that he can explain the answers to them. We are so pleased with Atanas tutoring

Heba, 17 lessons with Atanas

Good first lesson

Atanas was great. We reviewed concepts that I was having a hard time understanding and he made them very clear for me to comprehend. This was a very helpful session.

Anna, 1 lesson with Atanas

Insightful and Didactic

I am studying for the GRE and needed help in the quantitative area since I've not taken math since high school. For the first session Atanas determined my strengths and weakness. From there he tailors lessons specifically to both what is important to the test and what I need to work on. He is very knowledgeable and more importantly, knows how to explain math in a way that helps the student remember and understand concepts easily.

Shiela , 8 lessons with Atanas

Very Patient, Caring Tutor

My daughter has difficulties with math. Atanas was very patient with her, constantly giving her words of encouragement. By the end of his one hour lesson, he gave her one-sheet summary of the key points of the session. My daughter felt very comfortable with him and confident about herself.

Keiko, 1 lesson with Atanas

Great tutor!

Atanas is extremely patient and knowledgeable in all topics. He was able to know exactly what I needed to work on, provide study help, and aid in raising GRE scores.
