I am a teacher with 12 years of experience in NJ schools. I have taught various sections of high school mathematics, including Advanced Math I and II; I have also taught Science in middle school. Of the twelve years as a school teacher, I taught nine in a private college prep school for children with learning disabilities.
I have passed the Praxis Mathematics certification exams with a Certificate of Excellence (top 15%) and hold two NJ teacher's certificates. In 1997, I was awarded the Geraldine R. Dodge Fellowship Award for alternate route teachers.
I have been tutoring for SAT, ACT, and GRE for many years. Besides an advanced degree in Science (summa cum laude), I have an M.F.A. in creative writing, so I can teach both math and verbal sections of SAT, ACT, and other standardized tests. My teaching is always focused on the individual student and his/her specific learning needs. I would be especially interested in a tutoring opportunity that involves academic/study skills advising and coaching.
I am a Russian writer, poet, translator, and editor. I authored 8 books of poetry in Russian. I am also an editor of the Storony Sveta literary journal (in Russian), as well as the English language version of the journal, Cardinal Points. The latter is focused on Russian culture.
I have taught Russian History at NYU, Russian Language and Russian Civilization at Montclair State University, as well as classes in Russian language at a private high school in NJ (Barnstable Academy). I am currently tutoring several students in Russian language.
Excellent — Irina left a great first impression. My 17 year old son had his first SAT lesson with her yesterday. She is knowledgeable and patient! So far she gets the highest mark! ...
