Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

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 and to help my students achieve their goals. Individual approach and patience with a spoonful of fun move my students to become experts in algebra and other fields of Mathematics. You are very welcome to try how it works for you 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, create interest and apply lots of patience and some fun to teach Math. 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 in Russia, and I have been teaching math since 2012 in the USA. 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. So, the right choice of tutor can influence the life of the student immensely.
You and your kids are welcome to start Maths studies with me and I will do my best to make the world of numbers and equations interesting and exiting for you.

ESL/ESOL

I am a certified teacher who passed Cambridge ESOL Exam and have been teaching English to the speakers of other languages, using Language Immersion and Communicative approach for 18 years.

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. It required a lot of studies in math, algebra, calculus together with other subjects. After completing my studies, I helped many other students to complete theirs and they inspired me to switch my career and devote my life to teaching. I have been tutoring Math to kids and adults since 1985 in Russia and Azerbaijan and since 2012 in the USA. Among my former students there are engineers, teachers and even the director of a TV channel. I know strong points of Russian and American schools of Mathematics and apply my own methods and techniques to make the subject easy to understand and remember. I strongly believe that everybody has his or her own way in understanding math and help my students to find it and achieve their goals.

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.

My diplomas and certifications include: a Master’s degree in Russian Language 160 credits from the Oil and Chemistry State Academy in Azerbaijan, post-Soviet Republic, Teaching Knowledge Test band 4, from Cambridge University and Advanced Level of English from Russian Branch of the European School of Education by Correspondence. I also gained a certificate of Higher Language Courses at Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russian Federation.

Victoria is a Wonderful Teacher! — I've been learning Russian with Victoria for a while now and she is a really great tutor. She is very patient and understanding, and always does a good job at thoroughly explaining the material. The virtual classroom she uses is not the traditional way of learning a language, but it is a lot better in my opinion.
