In order to earn two college degrees, I mastered Russian, English, general computer knowledge, Microsoft Office, Microbiology, Biology, Chemistry, College Math, Psychology, English as a Second Language (ESL), as well as other subjects that were degree-specific classes.

While tutoring many students, I have experienced the wonderful pleasure of making a difference in others’ lives. The greatest reward of tutoring is always seeing the joy well up from within as my students conquer the frustrations that come from the attempt to grasp a concept from a lesson alone. During my studies to become a Physician Assistant, I took many science classes completing prerequisites and earning a BA in Arts. The total of credits taken was 139. I made the Dean's list during many semesters, including my Nursing degree from Russia for which I was on the Dean’s list from the beginning. It is impossible for me to forget the teachers who made a great difference in my life, especially those who taught me developmental psychology, child psychology, health psychology, adolescent psychology, abnormal psychology, and introduction to psychology. Many classes included workshops which allowed me to gain more knowledge in the given subjects. I can use my knowledge of psychology, the sciences, and many other subjects to help you succeed in your studies.

Approved subjects

Elementary (K-6th)

While working with adolescents, I collaborated side by side with certified teachers who taught reading, writing, comprehension, science, and language. I worked with this age group supervising, tutoring, and directing extracurricular activities. Both my education in psychology and my experience working with Administration of Children Services (ACS) as a Child Care worker allow me to have insights into how kids learn, tutor them with the age appropriate material professionally.

Elementary Math was my favorite subject in school. I got an A+ for the class because to me, it was an easy subject. I recognize that it is not easy for many students, and I know how to make it much easier.

Russian

I was born and raised in Russia until I was 20 years old. I have also been living in America for 20 years. I earned an Associate's Degree in Nursing in Russia before I immigrated to the United States. While working in many hospitals of NYC, I was one of the best translators for those patients who could not speak English. I can help my clients to excel in Russian regardless of their knowledge of Russian language.

I am fluent in English and have an excellent vocabulary. I can help you build your vocabulary as well.

The best time to start preparing for the tests is to start as early as possible. One of the reasons people go to school is to go through a psychosocial development. In school, people learn to ask questions, to seek attention from a teacher, to communicate with peers, and the list is endless. As this psychosocial development occurs, it is very important to train memory and cognitive skills... read more
