I have more than 20 years of experience as a teacher and private tutor, working with students in most high school academic subjects. All students are different, so I try to determine their needs and most effective learning styles at the beginning. Although I can adjust to any curriculum and will help students meet the requirements of their teachers, I use my own well-tested methods to give students different perspectives that may enable them to understand the material more easily. Students must do their own homework and write their own papers. However, I will help them with every step, offering tips and critiques based on the success of hundreds of students with whom I have worked. My main subjects have been upper levels of high school math and science, including calculus, pre-calculus (college algebra), trigonometry, chemistry and biology. I also have helped many students with literature (classical and contemporary American, British and Russian fiction, poetry and drama). As a former newspaper reporter and editor, I know how to work with students to improve their skills in analysis and writing. I can guide, but students must do the work.
