Ilya Tsinis is joining the ICA Kids Online Math staff this Fall. Ilya has a bachelor's degree from Princeton University, and graduated cum laude with a degree in Engineering, Operations Research. He will be teaching Number Theory & The Art of problem Solving this Fall to our 5th & 6th Graders.
He loves exploring interesting and tricky math problems with his students, but seeing his students develop empathy, critical thinking, organization and problem-solving skills is his greatest reward as a teacher.
Ilya discovered his love of teaching as a student at Stuyvesant High where he was captain of his math team, and as a senior, had the unusual opportunity to teach a class of freshmen for an entire school year.
