Hello! My name is Peter Goncharov and I recently graduated from the University of Minnesota with a 3.94 GPA in Neuroscience. I am Pre-med and have excelled in many of the courses that are required by both medical schools and the MCAT. I began tutoring one a half years ago when my Organic Chemistry professor selected me to tutor fellow students in his class, and I received a nominated teaching award through this.

Hello! My name is Peter Goncharov and I recently graduated from the University of Minnesota with a 3.94 GPA in Neuroscience. I am Pre-med and have excelled in many of the courses that are required by both medical schools and the MCAT. I began tutoring one a half years ago when my Organic Chemistry professor selected me to tutor fellow students in his class, and I received a nominated teaching award through this. I now also tutor for University athletes in courses that include: General Chemistry 1 & 2, Organic Chemistry 1 & 2, Physics 1 & 2. I would also be able to teach General Biology, Biochemistry, or Genetics. I have experience teaching college aged students (18-22 years old), but would be prepared to teach those who are in these classes in high school and/or college (ages 14-22).

My main goal is trying to break down much of the barriers students face when learning traditionally "hard" courses and show them just how intuitive and, dare I say, fun they are to learn. I love the moment when students who have really struggled with a concept they felt was totally outside their grasp suddenly feel something click in their heads. While I can tailor my teaching style towards a specific student’s needs, I come prepared to sessions with practice problems that can identify what topics students understand or need more practice on. We can also go through questions students may have. I then walk students through the problems while stopping to discuss and ask questions about concepts that may have led to their misunderstanding. I want students to feel like autonomous learners and try not to immediately give the answers, but rather guide them in the right direction, as my ultimate goal is to have students feel confident in their own problem solving abilities.

MCAT

I recently took the MCAT and achieved a score of 522 (>99%) and have previously completed all the AAMC Full Length exams with the following scores: (FL1: 520, FL2: 523, FL3: 521, FL4: 523) with an 522 avg (>99%). I have extensively tutored topics specifically for the chemistry/biochemistry/physics portions of the exam, as well as biology sections, scoring in the top 99% for Chem/Phys and Bio/Biochem sections.

Very knowledgeable and patient!

We covered several topics in preparing for my first Biochemistry exam. I have used Peter several times, and he is always super helpful. He makes a hard subject much easier to understand. I definitely recommend Peter!

explains everything well

Great tutor. He made my organic chemistry lab much easier to understand and his notes were very helpful too.

Sasha, 1 lesson with Peter

Super knowledgeable and helpful!

Peter saved me in chemistry this summer! He explained concepts so well and was super patient and kind while helping me to understand everything. I couldn’t recommend him more especially if you are struggling in chem.

Knowledgable and patient tutor

Peter went through rate laws and worked problems with me. The session was a productive one, and he has a calm and comfortable demeanor that makes interacting and working with him a pleasure.

Michael, 2 lessons with Peter

Great experience

Very knowledgable in chemistry and is easy to understand. Doesn't respond condescendingly when you don't understand something. Will be using again very soon!

Gabriela, 1 lesson with Peter

Very knowledgeable orgo tutor!

Peter helped me truly understand my homework, gave good examples, broke it down and gave me ways to remember how to solve specific problems and knew exactly what he was doing thank you such I look forward to more tutoring sessions!
