My first priority is to understand a student's goals and needs. This informs my teaching style and the structure of our lessons. I emphasize hands on experience and laying down a strong foundation before moving on to more complex concepts.
I am a full time software engineer with 5 years of professional experience. I also work as an assistant instructor at a web development bootcamp. Previously I taught web development at the University of Toronto. I have a well rounded software engineering background where I have had the opportunity to explore all levels of the application lifecycle, from implementing designs, to setting up testing infrastructure and automating deployments. I also have experience working with a wide range of students and subjects as a private tutor.

Perfect! Dimitry's Strengths as a Tutor:
-Is willing to help you with solving each of the assignment's problems.
-Helps make you think about how to solve the problem
Perfect! Dimitry is a really great teacher and has been incredibly helpful to my learning and understanding of various programming languages and concepts. It's been very easy communicating with him on SuperProf, he's always quick to reply to messages and is very accommodating of any changes. I've also found him to be a great teacher and explains coding concepts clearly and effectively. He goes above and beyond to help me with projects and seems to genuinely want his students to excel. I'd highly recommend him.
Perfect! Great at explaining what needs to be done and why, and showing external resources to try and learn yourself in the future
Perfect! Super patient teacher, totally recommend!
Perfect! On time, very knowledgeable, and patient. Excellent to work with and would highly recommend. Thing things I learn from Dimitry I only need to learn once thanks to his learning method.
Excellent! He is very patient and thorough when it comes to digging deep into the problem and working through the process of suggesting solution. I worked with him on two occasions and had a good experience with him.
Kathy is a good student. She came prepared to learn and with a clear understanding of what she wanted to get out of our sessions.
Dimitry mentored 20 entry-level/junior developers including myself at a coding bootcamp course at UofT for six months. Dimitry is a great mentor, always ready to listen, provide recommendations and support whenever needed, and is always available to provide guidance and constructive feedback. He has a great passion for mentoring, and helping others further develop themselves. I’m thrilled to see him continue pursuing his passion in sharing his knowledge and experience to empower others. Good luck!
Dimitry was my TA for a 6-month fullstacks development Bootcamp in 2019. He is very knowledgable, helpful, curious, and passionate. I'm confident that he would make a wonderful tutor. I've listed a few key aspects of Dimitry that truly set him apart.
- Dimitry often came around to make sure we were on the right track. If we ever had trouble with our code, he would sway the conversation to make us think like a coder, which was tremendously helpful in finding solutions to our problems and also helped us understand how to solve problems on our own.
- Dimitry is an incredibly passionate programmer, often spotted learning new concepts or languages. His own career growth strongly reflects this as well.
- Dimitry always provided detailed and helpful feedback on how we can improve our own projects.
- Dimitry was very understanding of the circumstances and pressure students faced. We were able to approach him if he ever faced circumstances that affected our ability to work. He was always supportive and often suggested solutions that would help our circumstances.
Dimitry was an assistant instructor at the UofT Full Stack Web Development bootcamp I attended and was always the first person I would go to with any questions or problems I had with the material. His calm and friendly demeanor made him easy to approach and he very much cared about his students and would take the time to work towards a solution. He is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to full stack development and his insights from his career would be invaluable to any one fortunate enough to learn from him.
Dimitry is an excellent, patient and flexible tutor. He will work with you through problems, asking questions along the way that will lead you in the right path. He lets the student come to the answer by themselves instead of just giving them the answer, which is great for actually learning how things work in the long run. Also a great tutor for all levels of students, as a beginner he avoided jargon and explained things to me in plain English. But as I got more experienced and more comfortable I realized he has years of coding experience that he is able to share.
I had the pleasure to have Dimitry as a teacher assistant during a 6-month web development Bootcamp at the University of Toronto. Dimitry is a great teacher who helped me understand concepts, techniques, and also prepared me to be a better professional.
Dimitry was a TA for a course that I took at the University of Toronto's School of Continuing Studies. He is an incredibly understanding and patient tutor. I was in a very fast-paced and challenging part-time course which I took while I had a full-time job. I required quite a lot of help as a result. Dimitry was always there to help me figure out what was wrong with my codebases. He has a very measured/structured approach which always leads to a valid solution. He will also explain his methods and the code solution once found. With Dimitry, you will have an amazing and calm learning experience. Dimitry also does not panic when it takes a while to get things figured out and you think your entire project is useless, but he somehow always manages to save it!
I joined a Coding Bootcamp back in 2019, and Dimitry was one of the TA's assigned to work with our batch of students. Dimitry is a pretty laid back and chill instructor, which makes him extremely easy to approach. Being completely new to coding, I often struggled with concepts and had trouble explaining what I was trying to achieve with my codes. Dimitry would take the time to understand my attempts and walk me through my codes. He would patiently guide me to find the solutions myself without outright solving it on my behalf. These attributes are the reason why I believe Dimitry would be an asset to any tutoring/teaching organizations.
Dimitry is an amazing tutor in the area of full-stack web development. When I was facing difficulties for some after-class exercises, he always help me identify how to detect the issue. After making sure that I understood his explanation, he encouraged me to give me a try by my own. If further questions were raised or same issue was on-held, he will then provide further guidance. I am really gratitude to his patience and help during and after the coding practice. Thanks for his tutoring, I do learned a lot of code development skills. Therefore I would like to write this recommendation to Dimitry.
Dimitry was the TA for my half year long coding bootcamp. He has a fantastic approach to teaching. He guides you through the subject by asking you leading questions instead of telling you what needs to be done. I find that this helped me a learn more thoroughly. His teaching method also teaches you how to learn. This has been invaluable to me.
