He is capable of tutoring all common subject matters, but most enjoys chemistry, biology, and SAT/ACT reading. He is personable, patient, and has a knack to explain concepts in a simple way.

Anton is currently a sophomore at University of Texas in Dallas (UTD) within the Collegium V Honors Program. He earned a full ride scholarship through his status as a National Merit Finalist (top 0.2% in the US). In addition, he has received three San Antonio Area Foundation scholarships for four years given his exceptional academic achievements.

Anton graduated as the top graduate from Basis Shavano, an academically focused charter school. He scored a perfect 36 on his ACT exam leading him to choose to abstain from taking the SAT. However, he scored perfect 800 out of 800 on both his SAT Biology and Chemistry subject tests. He spent time as a peer tutor across multiple years there in subjects including AP Chemistry, AP Biology, AP World History, AP U.S. Government, AP Psychology, AP Human Geography, and AP Computer Science. He also scored extremely well on his AP exams earning a 5 on AP Biology, AP Calculus AB, AP Chemistry, AP Comparative Government and Politics, AP Computer Science A, AP English Literature and Composition, AP European History, AP Human Geography, AP Physics 2, AP Psychology, AP Statistics, and AP U.S. Government and Politics as well as a 4 on AP English Language and Composition, AP U.S. History, and AP World History. Anton was the captain of Basis Middle School and High School Science Bowl teams, and one of his teams went to Nationals in DC. Anton placed in the top 10 in the state in UIL competition in science, biology, and computer science. Anton was also involved as a varsity member of UIL Speech & Debate competition.

Anton has spent four summers doing research at University of Texas Health San Antonio (UTHSA) while in high school. He started research by being selected for the Voelcker Biomedical Research Academy, a charitable program in San Antonio meant to put high achieving high school students in San Antonio into research, and he continued working in labs on his own initiative to support lead research scientists. Anton joined Dr. Senlin Li’s lab, which focuses on developing an adult stem cell based therapy for neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s Disease. In his freshman summer of college, Anton became a clinical shadow at the Children’s Hospital of San Antonio under Dr. Melissa Svoboda, the section chief of neurology there. Anton’s goal is to become a practicing Neurologist.
