I am a Certified Math Teacher with over 15 years of teaching experience and a former teacher at the award-winning DeBakey High School for Health Professions. I have Master's Degree in Education and Math. Over the years of being a classroom teacher, I have had the privilege of helping hundreds of students achieve success in math and overcome test anxiety.

For the last six years, I taught at the highest performing high school for math and science in Houston. I have extensive experience teaching Algebra I and II, Geometry (my personal favorite), Precalculus and SAT prep. I consider high school math and test prep (SAT, ISEE, ASVAB, ACT, Acuplacer, Compas) my specialty.

And now as a tutor, I am very excited to bring my knowledge and expertise to help you or your child master math. Over the years of working with students with very diverse backgrounds I've developed solid tools that can now help bring student’s learning to the next level. These are not only techniques to help with understanding math, but also simple but practical tools to overcome testing anxiety, raising self confidence, ending procrastination and truly removing all blocks on the way to success in math.

My mission as a math tutor is to help my students: build confidence in math and themselves, develop critical thinking, and get the highest scores on math tests so they can first catch up or keep up and ultimately stay ahead! I am passionate to share my own secret formula for lasting success in math (that I’ve successfully used to help hundreds of students) not only to get a deeper understanding of the subject and the highest test scores, but also help my students get in and graduate from the college of their dreams!

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 taught and tutored Discrete Math for over 7 years. I have a Master's in Math and successfully completed the course myself a few years ago. Since then, I had a lot of experience working with students on Discrete Math. I am happy to share that all my tutoring students end up with A or B average in the course.

Finite Math

I taught and tutored finite Math for over 5 years. I have a Master's in Math and successfully completed the course myself a few years ago. Since then, I had a lot of experience working with students on Finite Math. My most recent student got a 95 course average on his online Finite Math class after working with me for 1 month.

ISEE

I have a lot of experience working with ISEE test, since that is the test that is used to be admitted to our school. I have graded, reviewed and tutored for the test for over 10 years. Over 100 students were able to do really well on it under my guidance and I am very excited to provide support for anyone who needs help in it.

Linear Algebra

I have a Master's in Math and successfully completed the course myself a few years ago. I taught and tutored Linear Algebra for over 5 years. Since then, I had a lot of experience working with students with Linear Algebra as part of an Advanced Algebra course.

Russian

Russian is my native language. I spoke it exclusively until the age of 15, since I was born in Russia. So I graduated both College and High School there (speaking only Russian). I also speak Russian at home with my daughters all the time. I love teaching Russian and am very excited to help people with it.

TAKS

I have been teaching how to prepare students for TAKS for over 10 years. I worked high achieving schools where students have 100% passing rate on TAKS. I am a certified Math teacher and tutored students for TAKS multiple times.

Great tutor- have referred 2 students — We knew are our daughter would need help with Geometry in 10th grade, she has always struggled with math. We made arrangements for weekly tutoring at the beginning of school. With Mrs. Olga's tutoring, my daughter has gone from making some of the lowest grades in class to making the highest grades. She made 90 on her report card and has made A's on her last two tests. Mrs. Olga is so patient and v ...
