I am a patient and passionate teacher, who likes to teach with creating interest, using innovative technologies and adding fun to the lessons. I am using various authentic materials to teach languages. Russian is my native language and I am an experienced ESL teacher, so I know everything that can trouble my students when they study new language and help them to avoid it. I can introduce you in the culture and modern world of Russia, teach you traditional Russian craft- knitting, cooking Russian food and help you to organize a trip. If you decide on studying Maths with me, you will find out that it is interesting, exciting subject which is very easy to learn with some music, funny videos and games. I know the traditional Russian school of Mathematic, which is famous all over the world and I also use modern technologies to make the lessons interesting. For more than 20 years I have been tutoring and teaching kids from the age of 4 and older and adult students of very different age. As a part of my job i use computer a lot and create thousands of PowerPoint presentations with video, audio files, funny animations and triggers for the games. Many of them are uploaded in the net and got appreciations from all over the world. I can teach you all the secrets of PowerPoint and the basics secrets of using computers.

Algebra 1

Math has been one of my favorite subjects since elementary school. I have my master's degree in Industrial Engineering from Russia and ten years experience as an engineer designer at the Institute of Mechanics and Mathematics of Academy of Science in Azerbaijan and later in Russia. I also have experiences in teaching math as a private teacher and a tutor for many years first in Russia and now here in the USA. All this background and comprehension of differences between Russian, European and American schools of Maths, together with patience and clear understanding of the goals of my students helps me to be a good teacher for my students and to help my students achieve their goals. You are very welcome to try Easy Maths in my virtual classroom.

Elementary Math

I completed my studies from elementary school to Master's Degree in Russia and know very well what makes the Russian school of Mathematics one of the best in the world. I combine traditional and innovative methods to teach Maths by creating interest and fun. I am proud that this subject becomes a favorite one, easy to understand and fun to study for all of my students.
I started to teach Maths as a home tutor more than twenty years ago. Now my former students are successful engineers and businessmen and became my friends who are spread all over the world. I believe that any successful career starts from creating interest in studies from the very basic level and the right choice of tutor can influence all your life.
You and your kids are welcome to start your Maths studies with me and I will do my best to make the world of numbers and equations interesting and exiting for you.

General Computer

Computers are like people. First you see just the screen, but then your learn its language and it becomes your friend. The more you use your computer, the better assistant and friend you have. As soon as you learn how to use it you will have the whole world on your lap.

Phonics

I am a certified teacher who passed the Cambridge ESOL Exam and have been using phonics as a method of teaching people to read in which they are taught to recognize the sounds that letters represent.

Prealgebra

I have a Master's Degree in Industrial Engineering, which required math, algebra and calculus studies. I also have been teaching Prealgebra and Algebra 1 at Monterey Peninsula College Academic Support Center as a tutor for a year already. I have excellent references from my supervisor and my students. I use individual approach together with creating interest and comfortable atmosphere to make learning process easy and enjoyable for all of my students. To teach Mathematics, I also use some of the methods of European and Russian school of Mathematics. As I completed my studies in Russia, and for more than a year I work with American students, I can see all the benefits of both schools and combine them to help my students to achieve excellent results.

Russian

I am a native Russian speaker and a second generation teacher.

I have been teaching Russian for speakers of other languages for 5 years and English for 18 years. I develop exclusive programs for the specific content needs of my students, who have been between 3-68 years old. All my programs are based on authentic materials adjusted to the language level of my students and the range of their interests. I like to use modern technologies and create interactive games to make the process of learning easy and enjoyable for both student and teacher. I know and use different methods of teaching depending on the abilities and interests of my students, but the basic and the most efficient methods which I like to use are Language Immersion and Communicative Approach.
