Your children have only one chance for education, and they deserve the best!
Based on my over twelve years of experience as a full-time tutor of children and adults, I can tell that one-on-one tutoring practice gives the best results. I am dedicated, caring and reliable. I love helping others achieve to the best of their abilities, and then - beyond. Because I believe that everybody can better themselves.
Together with the student, we map out the way to achieve our goals, and at this point I take an individual approach with everyone. So far, I've been working with students of ages ranging from 3 to 65, so I know that organizational skills, comprehending, learning speed, and simply habits vary from a person to another person.
I don't promise miracles, I just make them. My students always succeed! No matter if it is a three-year-old (who I managed to teach to read before his fourth birthday!) or an adult student who did not have any faith that she could pass her pre-employment test, everybody reached their or their parents' goals.
The price may increase due to a longer commute. No shows/no calls will be charged for the scheduled time for tutoring or a meeting - if 2 hours were scheduled, 2 hours will be charged. Cancellations less than 24 hours before the lesson will be charged for 1 hour of tutoring.
My native tongue is Bulgarian. I use Russian, Macedonian, Serbian, Croatian, Greek and German on different levels, and this helps me teach people of different origins and cultures.
I am also an interpreter/translator. As a former nurse, I mainly interpret at hospitals. My working experience started as a registered nurse in the surgery ward of St. Anna Hospital (Varna, Bulgaria), after I graduated from the Medical College in the same city (1989). As a RN I provided perioperative care outside of the sterile field, which included caring for patients prior to surgery and during recovery after surgery. Later I earned a Master of Science degree in Ecology (with additional major in Journalism) - from the Technical University Varna (1998).
In 2011-2012 school year I taught Life Science (Biology) in middle schools in Indianapolis, IN, as a student-teacher in the Teaching Program at the University of Indianapolis, and as a laureate of the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation.
I've tutored Bulgarian to Peace Corps individuals (2010-2012). While in Bulgaria, I translated a biography written by an English journalist (2004). I had been tutoring English for ten years to Bulgarian native speakers (both children and adults, 1995-2005) before moving to the States in January 2006.
