Salutations, folks! My name is Igor (pronounce ee-gore) and I'm very glad to meet you. I graduated from UC San Diego this past June, where I received degrees in Economics and Political Science (High Honors). My honors thesis focused on the impacts of elections administration policies on political participation amongst nonwhite voters.

I decided to begin tutoring because of my passion for knowledge and education. To me, there is nothing more beautiful than learning and helping others learn in the process. While I enjoy sitting in a classroom and listening to instructors drone on for hours, I know this isn't the case with everyone. For example--my two younger brothers who I have tutored in numerous subject areas throughout their entire school careers. Additionally, I have served in both official and impromptu (e.g. leading group study sessions) tutoring capacities during high school and college, with a particular emphasis on the humanities and social sciences.

If you're looking for someone with expertise in AP exams, general SAT and SAT subject tests, writing (academic and non-academic), history, government, economics, statistics, Spanish, Russian, geography AS WELL AS the passion and dedication to make learning these subjects engaging (and more likely to lead to better test scores), then drop me a line to set up a tutoring session! I can meet you wherever is convenient for you, have a ton of test prep materials at my disposal, and promise to tailor my lessons to your specific needs.

It was great to meet you. Looking forward to chatting soon!

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe that there's no such thing as a bad student. Growing up, I switched schools a lot and had the privilege of seeing many teaching environments. I realized that some students adapted easily to different instructional styles, while others needed time to adapt. To me, it is the job of a tutor to get to know his/her students and learn their unique preferences. By getting to know my students, I am able to deliver more effective tutoring and help set them up for success in the classroom and beyond.
