About Anton

With experience in tutoring both high-achieving high school students at Walter Payton College Prep and struggling students without access to other tutoring resources at multiple elementary schools, I know just what kind of an impact an individual tutoring experience can create. I've loved all of my tutoring experiences, and I haven't found anything more rewarding than seeing the students I tutor excel in their classes.

Having just finished a rigorous semester at Harvard University after spending four years at Walter Payton College Prep, I have experience with a wide variety of rigorous AP-level courses, including AP Physics C, AP Calculus, and AP English Language / Literature and Composition. I also know that hard work pays off, having earned the top score of 36 on my ACT and perfect scores of 5 on 10 Advanced Placement exams. In working with my students, I try to not only help them find success in their specific problem subjects, but in all areas of academics. I try to teach them problem solving and time management strategies that they will find useful throughout their academic careers. Most importantly, I make myself wholly available to my students, always ready to help them succeed.

As a four-year state competitor on my high school's Math Team – and previously a Math Team member at my elementary school – I have experience both in introductory math courses and in higher-level AP courses, including AP Calculus BC. As the Tutoring Coordinator for my high school's chapter of the National Honor Society, I've spent two years coordinating student tutors and tutoring students myself in subjects including Physics, Geometry, and Algebra 2 / Trigonometry.

I try to be as flexible as possible in terms of scheduling, and am happy to travel to tutor students at locations of their choosing. Alternatively, I've also found coffee shops and libraries to be great study spaces. I look forward to hearing from you and helping your student succeed!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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. 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.

Russian

Born in Russia but raised in the United States, I grew up bilingual. I've gone back to Russia every summer for over 10 years to continue learning the language from Russian school textbooks. Today, I fluently speak, read, and write Russian, and am excited to share my knowledge of the language and love of the culture with the WyzAnt community.

Swimming

I've been a competitive swimmer since 7th grade, swimming both for club teams and varsity high school teams. I was on the varsity team at Walter Payton College Prep for all four years, and I was the captain of the varsity team during my junior and senior years at the school. I've placed in the top ten at the CPS citywide swim meet on numerous occasions in the 100YD Butterfly and the 200YD Individual Medley.

Water Polo

I've been a varsity water polo player with Walter Payton College Prep for all four years of high school. During my junior and senior years, I was the captain of the team. In the 2015 season, I led the team to take 3rd place in its CPS region.

Seems very systematic in his approach. First meeting today. Looking forward to a great relationship. — I like the fact that Anton has experience in working with 4-7th graders! Today was more of an assessment as to the kids Math level. UPDATE 7-29-2015 (after approx 12 tutoring sessions) Anton has been great in making the tutoring sessions fun and appealing to kids 6 - 10 years old. We see that the children are inspired to get on Khan Academy, after hours as well as Anton's ability to reinforce ...
