Tutor and Advisor Team
Advanced Tutor
Michael Tcherepashenets
Michael came to A-List Education with nearly a decade of experience tutoring a wide array of academic subjects, including Calculus, Spanish, and Philosophy, and exams, including the SAT, ACT, SSAT, and ISEE. He has devised and taught year-long curricula for home-schooled students, and guided applicants through every stage of the US college admissions process.

As an SAT/ACT tutor, Michael takes pleasure in helping students demystify these sometimes daunting exams. This means coaching students in a set of techniques that are specifically designed to make complex questions straightforward, guiding them towards a thorough understanding of question structure, and, of course, offering a strong foundation in content. Having worked with students of all ages and backgrounds, including many neurodiverse students, he is flexible and sensitive, tailoring his approach to the individual. Michael takes a holistic view, seeking not merely to support performance on a particular test, but to help the student develop as a learner and a thinker in the broadest sense. The aim is always to foster curiousity, critical thinking, and self-sufficiency.

Michael graduated from Williams College with a B.A. in Philosophy and English. While there, he also pursued studies in Mathematics, undertaking funded research in Linear Algebra with Prof. Leo Goldmakher. He is a professional actor, currently pursuing his Master in Fine Arts in Acting at LAMDA. He has worked professionally as an actor and director in the US, UK, Japan, Poland, and, most recently, as a member of the troupe of the State Russian Drama Theatre of Lithuania, in Vilnius. He speaks Russian, Spanish, French, and a modicum of Lithuanian.
