Dmitriy has worked as a tutor, teaching assistant, and mentor for the last 6 years in New York and Boston with dozens of high school and middle school students to help them excel in various subjects, including: Algebra, Geometry, Pre-calculus, Trigonometry, Chemistry, and Physics. He has also worked with students preparing for the SAT, ACT, SHSAT and SAT Subject Exams.
Dmitriy enjoys teaching students fundamental concepts that can be applied to multiple problems and explains how formulas are derived in order to minimize memorization. His students then reinforce what they learned through practice questions. Dmitriy takes an individualized approach with every student to accommodate their learning style and speed. At the end of every session, he also uses a “teach-back” method, during which his students teach him what they learned that day.
In his spare time, Dmitriy loves to play chess with his grandfather, explore New York City, learn new things, and teach others.
