About Yuriy

Hi, I'm a certified tutor and high school teacher with many years of experience; my specialization is in Math and Business. I have a graduate degree from NYU in Financial Risk Engineering and an undergraduate degree from Brooklyn College in Mathematics. I taught in two different high schools for a number of years, in one I taught Mathematics for the grades 9-12th, and in another I taught Biology and Chemistry. I’m still currently teaching mathematics in high school, but not on the full-time basis, I prefer teaching students individually, adapting my teaching style to their needs and characteristics. I've been doing a lot of private tutoring over the years, such as: middle and high school math, chemistry and biology, preparing students for SAT exams, teaching students of college level, teaching programming languages and Excel.

Besides being a teacher, I worked as a financial analyst for a big company for more than two years, where I have accumulated a lot of useful experience, but ultimately I decided to come back to teaching, which I think is my greatest strength.

I love teaching and I get greatest joy from watching my students grow. I’m a very patient and dedicated teacher; I’m very good at explaining difficult concepts in simple terms and I know how to make each tutoring session engaging and enjoyable. I’m looking forward to working with you, helping you accomplish your goals.

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.

Chess

I'm a very strong chess player with 1900 rating on FICS (I can provide screenshot if needed). I have experience tutoring chess and I used to be president of chess club in Poly NYU when I was a student there. I tutored strong players as well as people who didn't even know how to play it, all with positive results.

MATLAB

I took Matlab as part of my Master's degree of Financial Risk Engineering in NYU, and I got A on this subject. I used Matlab extensively in my other Graduate courses, especially Econometrics, and I used it in my work when I was Financial Analyst for JetBlue airlines. I also tutored other students in Matlab, all with very positive results.
