About Misha

Currently I'm a 4th year PhD student at Clemson University in Materials Science and Engineering department. I received my bachelor degree in experimental physics (2006-2010) and my master degree (2010-2012) from the Ivan Franko national university of lviv, Ukraine. Physics and math were always easy subjects for me, which I enjoyed the most. Especially it concerns advanced Physics (Theoretical Mechanics, Quantum mechanics) and Math (Calculus, Linear algebra, differential equations and so on). While in Ukraine I worked as a private tutor of above subjects for three years. When I started pursuing my master degree in Solid state physics I worked as a teaching assistant giving lectures to undergraduates on Surface Physics and Chrystallography (2010-2012). Also I tutored optics and nuclear physics for high school students.

All I can say, math is my favorites and I really like to teach it. I know how hard its concepts can be, so I have enough patience to explain the material as carefully as possible. My strategy of teaching is based on student's personal motivation. In any problem I always try to find real-world example as opposed to "dry" explanation and ready-to-go solution. In order for a student to understand and resolve any problem on math he needs to see what laws it rests on! So, I break down the most complex task into the smallest possible pieces and from there I help student to find out all "keys" to the final solution.

My availability: Monday-Friday from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm and Saturday, Sunday - all day. I can travel to students or meet them online. My base rate is 40$/hour for in-person lessons and 25$ for online lessons. I also offer lesson packages at a discount and free consultation meeting - contact me for more details.

I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

Algebra 1

I have tutored Algebra I to college students for a couple years. When tutoring Algebra I always try to be patient and optimistic. When it comes to solving problems by a student I will make sure that he/she knows general math and how to apply its concepts in cracking algebraic equations.

Algebra 2

I have tutored Algebra II to college students. Since I'm a physicist I strongly rely on its ideas. Because I studied quite well at school and university I'm pretty confident in my knowledge on Algebra II.

Calculus

During my undergraduate studies I've had mathematical analysis course for three years. Also I tutored Calculus for kids in high school and university yet. All in all, I like to do integrals and I'm really good at it!

Physics

I received my master and BS degrees in Physics, so I'm very passionate about this subject. My strategy of teaching is based on student's personal motivation. In any problem I always try to find real-world example as opposed to "dry" explanation and ready-to-go solution. In order for a student to understand and resolve any problem on physics he needs to see what laws it rests on!
