Bio

I have experience in tutoring and teaching. I originally became a teacher of 5th grade after completing a credential and master program at UC Davis. I moved to Tucson to be with family and friends and took a job teaching high school art and geometry. Later I taught 4th grade general education. I realized that the quality of education I would like to provide my students is a gargantuan task in the setting of a modern public school classroom.

I have experience in tutoring and teaching. I originally became a teacher of 5th grade after completing a credential and master program at UC Davis. I moved to Tucson to be with family and friends and took a job teaching high school art and geometry. Later I taught 4th grade general education. I realized that the quality of education I would like to provide my students is a gargantuan task in the setting of a modern public school classroom.

I am looking forward to tutoring because unlike teaching a classroom full of kids who mostly don't even want to be there, tutoring is geared towards one individual. The time that I have with that individual will be undoubtedly meaningful and successful because I know what approach to take and how to alter my strategy depending on the needs of an individual. In any memory I have of ever working with an adult or a child in a one on one setting, there is always the reward of seeing that student suddenly light up with understanding. Tutoring is effective, rewarding and very low stress.

I taught elementary math for 2 years as a teacher in my own classroom and for one year as a student teacher during my credential program. I know how students are supposed to do their math in light of the new approach taken with Common Core (strategies, algorithms, language used in classroom etc.).

I am a native Russian. I am fluent in speech and literacy of my language.

My own writing and communication skills are strong. I am a teacher and know what is expected in academia writing. I've undergone a Master program and written extensive research papers, which have always been successful. I am also a well read individual, familiar with Russian, English and American literature. Reading good books is a major component of writing well.

Since I am a teacher, fully certified and with actual field experience, I know exactly what standards students should be familiar with depending on their age group, I know where to find those standards and how to create material to address those standards.

I used to be a graphic designer before I became a teacher and I am very familiar with how to use this program because that used to be my career.

I look forward to working with all age groups and help you achieve success.
