My name is Alla and I have been teaching and tutoring in the area of mathematics for the past 21 years. I am a math teacher from CCPS and adjunct instructor for Chesapeake College. I have tutored in subjects such as remedial math, College Algebra, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Statistics, Algebra, and Algebra 2 and prepared clients for GRE, SAT, Accuplacer and GMAT tests. I have experience tutoring students from 1st to 12th grade and college level.

I have a MS in Electrical Engineering where I have taken up to Calculus 3, receiving A's in all math classes.

I love to teach, and have a keen ability in finding what is hindering a student from moving forward. I teach by first seeing where the student is in their understanding, then try my best to fix the cracks in the foundation of the students understanding of mathematical concepts. I have found that most students have problems with higher math classes because they lack the understanding that is needed to enter the class. My hope is to help a student get to a place where they no longer need a math tutor to keep them from failing, but can have the confidence to move forward on their own, knowing they have the capability of getting an A.

Let me explain my cancellation policy. If a student missed a session, he or she will be billed for 1 hour of my time. Call me in advance if you need to cancel, please.

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.

Discrete Math

I have MS in Electric Engineering and currently I am a certified teacher from KCHS and used to teach Discrete math in my school. I can teach my prospective students all kind of problems on Counting Methods, Probability of events and Algorithms.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified SpEd teacher for all school ages and I have 4 years of experience tutoring elementary school students. I worked for Princeton Review, Tutor.com and was very successful with it.

Needlework

Needlework is a broad term for the handicrafts of decorative sewing and textile arts. Anything that uses a needle for construction can be called needlework. I can knit and crochet any kind of clothes on any level of difficulty. I have examples at home and may show them to my prospective students. I sell them often and my clients like my work.

Praxis

I can teach Praxis I and Praxis II ( middle and high school math) since I passed them with good scores. Now I am a middle/high school teacher with 6 years of experience and use different teaching strategies in my classroom. I have also taught Developmental Math at the college level for 2 years.

Russian

I am Russian by nationality but moved to the USA 9 years ago. I was a teacher in Russia and the principal of a private elementary school. I used to teach elementary school students math, Russian, and English for four years.

Right now I am a math teacher at the high school level but speak Russian at home with my family. I teach Russian classes at the Chesapeake College.

Alla is Awesome!!! — My son worked with Alla for less than and month, and really got great results on the SAT. She did an excellent job explaining difficult concepts, and gave lots of good examples. Simply put, she gave my son the confidence he needed to succeed. I would highly recommend her to anyone with students needing that extra push to get ready for the national exams. ...
