More information about me at

My name is Denis Shilak and I am originally from Russia (Novosibirsk, Siberia) and currently living on the Gold Coast. Let me tell you a little about myself.
I was born in 1984 in a small town in Siberia, Russia and I have liked maths from my childhood. Whilst at school, I often helped my classmates with different maths tasks and it was then that I realized how much I enjoyed transferring my knowledge to another person. I received even more enjoyment when I saw just how much my knowledge had helped.
After finishing school in 2001, I studied at the Novosibirsk State Technical University (Novosibirsk, Russia) at the faculty of Applied Mathematics and Computer Sciences. I graduated in 2005 with a Bachelor Degree and in 2007 with a Masters Degree.
It was at this time that I began to actively engage in mathematical tutoring, helping both my own classmates and other students. Following graduation I worked in IT department, however, I continued tutoring because of the positive impact it made on others. When my wife and I moved to Australia in 2017, tutoring had become my passion and so it was only natural that I continue using my skills to assist students here.
My experience to date exceeds over 14 years in tutoring both high school and university students. I tutor successfully in both English and Russian and my lessons focus on simple and logical explanations. My aim is not just to teach students how to solve a problem, but also to enable them to understand the essence of that problem. Students from all backgrounds and with different levels of math skills improve in their basic mathematical knowledge as well as gain deeper insights into mathematical concepts.
My belief is that math can be enjoyable and satisfying and in a friendly, positive atmosphere, students begin to realize that there is a creative side to math – it really isn’t just boring numbers, pronumerals and equations!
Each student is an individual and therefore my teaching style is flexible and adaptable in order to bring about the best possible results.


Bachelor's Degree in Applied Math, 2001-2005
