I have a world-class education in mathematics and many years of experience teaching it. I have graduated summa cum laude from the top Russian technical university with BS and MS degrees in Applied Mathematics. I have continued my studies at Caltech and UCSD. I have over 10 years of experience teaching mathematics and over 15 years of tutoring experience.

I have taught mathematics at the middle school and high school levels in private progressive schools for 7 years, including AP classes and classes for gifted and talented children. I have extensive experience working with gifted children and developing their mathematical talents. I specialize in using Art of Problem Solving curriculum, which is arguably the most challenging and creative math curriculum in the US.

I have experience with many methods and approaches of teaching mathematics and have used all of the most common US mathematics programs, such as Saxon Math, College Preparatory Mathematics, Pearson, Discovering Mathematics, Art of Problem Solving, Singapore Math, and McDougal Littell Math.

I have taught and tutored all main high school math courses, including Honors and AP courses. I have successfully prepared students for AP Calculus AB and BC, SAT/SSAT Math, SAT Math 1 and SAT Math 2 over the last 15 years.

I have extensive knowledge of various mathematics competitions and have actively participated in them myself. I can structure an effective prep program for any K-12 level math competition. I have successfully prepared students for AMC 8/10/12, AIME, MathLeague, MathCounts, Math Kangaroo, BCA math competition, MOEMS, and many others.

I have many years of experience preparing students for SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, ACT, Regents, and other standardized tests. I have taught successful test prep programs for over 8 years. I can assess student's current level and structure a highly efficient program to achieve the best results in the given timeline. I can set up a study plan with a sequence of standardized tests tailored for the best college admissions res
