Moscow State University by Lomonosov (#1 ranked in Russia) (Organic Chemistry)

I am an Organic Chemist focusing on Synthetic Organic and Medicinal Chemistry. I earned an M.S. in Organic Chemistry at Moscow State University, and in 2005, I matriculated into the graduate program at the University of Denver, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. After I earned a Ph.D. in Synthetic Organic Chemistry and Photo-Chemistry, I worked as a post-doctoral fellow at The Scripps Research Institute and Georgia Institute of Technology. Currently I am a Scientist at a local biopharmaceutical company.
Even though I have more than 10 years of experience in Synthetic Organic Chemistry and, in particular, in Organic Photo-Chemistry, Physical Organic Chemistry, Methodology Development, Medicinal Chemistry, Fluorine Chemistry, Synthesis of Heterocyclic compounds and Total Synthesis, I have a strong passion for teaching.
During my graduate school I actively participated in being a TA for various organic chemistry classes: CHEM 2461, 2462, 2463. My primary responsibility was to grade laboratory reports and proctor exams. I volunteered to be a research advisor for several students in Frontier Chemistry class (CHEM 3500) and was chosen by my supervisor as a teaching assistant for Medicinal Chemistry class (CHEM 3703). During the 5 years at the University of Denver I was also a tutor of Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry, Physical, Analytical and Green Chemistry classes. As a post-doctoral fellow I mentored many graduate and undergraduate students and at my current company I volunteer to supervise several interns over the summer.
I am ambitious, goal-oriented, and I know what it takes to be successful. Moreover, I believe that my publication record demonstrates my drive and ability. I am confident that my background, diverse experience in academia and industry, and a passion for teaching and working with students would make me a valuable addition to WyzAnt tutoring pool.

Roman is one of the best tutors I have worked with thus far. He is extremely patient and will work with you until you understand the problem. He is extremely knowledgable and passionate about the subject as well. Definitely will be working with him again!
Explains everything very well and honestly feel so confident in the material Great way to teach and knows what he is doing.
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.
I have a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry and Photo-Chemistry, an MS in Medicinal Organic Chemistry, and 4+ years of post-doctoral training and industrial experience.
I have a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry and 4+ years of post-doctoral experience in Total Synthesis and Medicinal Chemistry. I enjoyed tutoring in college, was a TA for several years in graduate school and continued teaching students during two of my post-docs and while being a Scientist III at a local biotech company in Boston. I am a very visual learner myself and often use visual aids such as: charts, tables, schemes and info-graphics.
I am a native speaker of the Russian language. I was born in Moscow and went to school and college there. While studying English as a second language I took several courses "Russian as a second language for English native speakers". It substantially helped me to bridge two languages together and understand how the grammar and vocabulary of both languages are connected. In Denver I tutored Russian and helped several students to excel in writing and improve their speaking skills.
