I believe there is no such thing as a difficult or boring subject. I can make it interesting and easy to understand. I can help you realize the why so you can accomplish the how with leadership, confidence and pride. My tutoring and teaching experience spread from middle school to college level. I have tutored children in one-on-one sessions and in small groups. Recently I worked in the after-school STEM program as a New York State Academy Fellow. In the STEM program, I taught science, technology, engineering and math via robotics that led my students to improve in science, math and confidence by showcasing their own creativity. I taught Introductory Genetics (think fruit flies and peas) and Developmental Biology discussion sections at the university level. Each class included group work as well as individual office hours to help students with individual issues and problems. Now thought WyzAnt, I have been tutoring high and middle school math, chemistry and all science subjects for almost three years. In addition, I have help students prepare for SAT in science and math and high school entrance exams.
I have received my bachelor's in Biological Sciences and master's degrees in Developmental Biology from the University of Illinois at Chicago. My work took me to the University of Chicago where I worked in Immunology lab and the Rockefeller University where I work in Sensory Neuroscience lab. I am an avid history buff and a photographer.

Serhiy is an excellent tutor who helped my son improve his geometry and chemistry skills in 4th semester of the 10th grade and helped him to prepare for regents exams in both subjects. By requiring my son to come to each lesson prepared and organized and requiring him to use his analytical thinking and reasoning, Serhiy improved his performance and grades; we also saw the improvement in confidence and understanding of both subjects. Serhiy has excellent ability to communicate with teen students, help them to set goals and achieve results. He is well organized and punctual. We really appreciate the help Serhiy has given to our son.
We are happy we chose Serhiy as a tutor for our high school son. We were using a tutoring site, but with the commute to and from the tutoring center and the time of the session, he would be doing homework so late that night.
We took a chance and it paid off. Serhiy is always on time and is able to answer all my son's questions. He also questions him to make sure that he really understands the topic. My son is doing better in Algebra 2/Trig and the added bonus of help in Chemistry as well. We are so glad we found Serhiy on WyzAnt.
Serhiy only tutored my 14 year old daughter in 9th Grade Algebra 1 once, but I can still recommend him. He was honest enough to tell me at the end of the lesson that he did not think that my daughter needed any tutoring (her teacher agrees). I don't think too many would have done that. He was very responsive and easy to reach and arrived on time. My daughter thought he was very helpful and knowledgeable. I will definitely keep him in mind should my daughter need a math tutor in the future. Thank you Serhiy for a very positive experience.
Serhiy has been working with our 10th grader for the past several weeks and we are very satisfied with his services. He is knowledgeable, punctual and responsive. He explains material thoroughly and makes sure the student really gets it before proceeding further. Serhiy is friendly and personable yet demanding and commands respect. We intend to keep working with this tutor.
Serhiy is great teaching my son Geometry. When my son does not know how to solve a problem, he asks him questions to get him thinking of the problem. He does not just giving an answer. He is also very patient and dependable. He always comes on time. We like him very much. We are highly recommending him to be your tutor.
Our daughter, a 10th grader, was having difficulties with chemisy concepts and had lost confidence. Luckily we were able to find Serhiy. He reviewed with her all the areas she had problems with, with patience and encouragement, and really made a difference. Our daughter has gained confidence and is now more comfortable in chemistry class - even the teacher noticed her positive outlook. Serhiy knows how to explain complex subjects in simple terms, and knows how best to reach a high schooler with helpful advice. I wish we had his help a lot earlier! I also found Serhiy easy to reach; he responded quickly by phone or emai, and was very willing to accommodate our schedule.
I was really pleased with Serhiy's tutoring. He was patient, sensible in his explanations, and always had a useful example to illustrate a point. I would definitely recommend him!
Serhiy tutored me in AP Biology for my senior year. It was a very tough course but he made sure to prepare himself with the needed information to be able to help me. He is very knowledgeable, organized, responsible and extremely helpful. His personality is very easy going and easy to get along with. He makes sure he and the person he is tutoring are on the same page in order for successful learning. I recommend Serhiy as a tutor because he is great at what he does and his main goal is to make sure you learn the material to be able to do well and know it for the long run.
Our daughter had her first tutoring session with Serhiy in advanced algebra/trig, and it went extremely well. He is well versed in the topics, and of equal importance, he is very patient and encouraging. It's unfortunate we didn't start tutoring sooner, but we feel very fortunate to have found someone with Serhiy's abilities to help our daughter.
Serhiy has been great with my son. I have seen an improvement in his confidence when it comes to Trigonometry tests and seems to be doing better with his grades. We are very happy with Serhiy as a tutor. He is patient and is willing to dedicate as much time as my son needs to understand everything fully. We highly recommend him.
Had a very good experience with this tutor. Serhiy was very serious and professional. Has been always on time and easy to reach by phone or email. He is extremely knowledgeable and very patient in explaining complex concepts. He pushes my daughter to think and understand rather than concentrate on mechanical memorization. I would definitely recommend him to others.
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 been tutoring Algebra for four years.
I have taken Genetics courses during my undergraduate and graduate studies. I have taught Genetics labs/discussion as a Teacher assistant for three semester to undergraduate student. I have tutored genetics to students in private practice for three years.
