My name is Yana and I am a graduate student at Yale Divinity School. In 2011, I graduated from the University of Florida with a finance major and French and real estate minors.

I was born in the Ukraine and lived in Israel for 10 years. I also studied abroad twice in France and South America. Thus, I am fluent in Russian, Hebrew, French, and Spanish. I can tutor students in reading, writing, listening comprehension, and speaking in the above languages.

In addition to foreign languages, I have a passion for math and over six years of tutoring experience in algebra and geometry.

Lesson plans will depend on each student’s level and desired concentration. We will work on the areas the student feels less comfortable with in using interactive teaching methods.

I am a patient, responsible, and dedicated teacher. I tutor students of all ages and backgrounds, so don't hesitate to contact me for more information or if you have any questions.

*** Online tutoring is also possible.

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.

I can help students with graphing, solving equations, evaluating expressions and inequalities, solving proportions and percents, analyzing quadratic functions, factoring, solving exponential expressions, as well as adding and subtracting polynomials.

I am an experienced math tutor and I have over 8 years of experience tutoring students in elementary math (K-6th).

I have recently graduated from the University of Florida with a finance major and French and real estate minors.

French

I successfully completed AP French in high school and I minored in French at the University of Florida. In addition, I lived in Paris for five months through a study abroad program and was enrolled in an elite school (Sciences Po) where I took six classes taught in French. I am passionate about the language and I am a fluent French speaker. I can tutor students in grammar, vocabulary, and speaking. In addition, I can help students to prepare for the AP exam.

Geometry

During geometry sessions the student will learn about the different types of angles, triangle classification, surface area calculation (cylinders, cones, spheres), and graphing lines.
