### Sergey

I am an engineer with a graduate degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where I have taught math and science courses for 1.5 years. I also have several years of private tutoring experience, teaching various levels of math and science from elementary school through college. Teaching is my passion, not only because I enjoy doing it, but also since I see how it makes a real difference in my students' lives.

I always attempt to explain difficult concepts in simple language, with real-world examples that my students can relate to. My tutoring sessions start with a discussion of the important terms and concepts, in which the student takes an active part. Subsequently, we will be working through some problems together, as I believe that problem-solving is the best way to learn new material. So be prepared for my hands-on approach! By the way, from my past experience, I know where students often experience difficulties, so will be spending some time on turning these weaknesses into strengths.

Outside of work, I enjoy exploring new places and travel abroad every year. My hobbies include chess, soccer, hiking, and martial arts.
