I'm Nataliya, and I've been a private tutor most of my adult life, since I took the SATs myself. I've continued to tutor because I love seeing a student reach that "aha" moment when they've solved some problem they'd been having trouble with. Tutoring, like all types of learning, is a medium for growth and self-improvement, which leads to a boost in confidence. And that's great for any person, especially a teenager. I love private tutoring because I'm able to give each student exactly what he/she needs - skipping the material they're strong on, and finding multiple ways to explain what it is they're having trouble with.
My subject areas span the range of anything from the JHS level entrance exams, such as the SHSAT, to high school level academic help in Math and English, and all sections of the SAT. My scores on the SAT were Critical Reading: 740, Writing: 760, Math: 720.
I currently teach SAT Critical Reading and SAT Writing at the City University of New York.
I'm from the NYC area, having grown up in Brooklyn most of my life. I love working with people from different backgrounds, and speak Spanish and Russian fluently.
I hope to meet your son or daughter soon, and help him/her meet his/her goals,
