University of Kentucky (Psychology)
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!

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.
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.
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.
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.
He reviewed basic concepts with me since it was our first session, and had study problems to help me prepare for our next session.
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. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
The goal of each and every algebra problem is to solve the variable by isolating it to one side of the equation. We achieve this by using the basic arithmetic while keeping in mind using the Golden Rule of Algebra: what you do to one side of the equation, you must do to the other side.
