I am available for online sessions due to the COVID-19 threat. I have been conducting online sessions for years now so I guarantee the quality of the learning experience. I am a highly qualified and dedicated teacher with more than 15 years of experience in tutoring students of all ages and levels of education, including undergraduate and graduate students. My strengths lie in my ability to understand how students learn and I have decided to dedicate my time towards educating the upcoming generation. I am most interested in changing the way my students perceive themselves when approaching math. I really care about my students, as their success is one of the main joys of teaching math. Throughout the years, I have had the most rewarding experience when my students, besides turning their grades around, feel empowered to the point they become a math resource to their classmates. I take my classes very personally and work together with parents to identify my students' areas of weakness. I am a strong believer that by bringing a holistic approach to tutoring, tutors are successful in changing students' views of life in the most important aspects, preparing them to face the future with more confidence to achieve excellence in everything they do in life.
To me every student is born as an artist; the problem is to remain an artist once they grow up. If there is a difficulty for students in doing something, it is because the fundamentals were not learned properly. Math is like a set of building blocks. No new concept is totally independent; rather it is an extension of a previous one. Students shouldn’t simply memorize formulas; they should understand where formulas are coming from. In this process, the brain gets trained for future problem-solving situations. When I work with Freshman and Sophomore students, I am conscious that I am actually preparing them for the SAT/CAT and postgraduate tests such as the GMAT and GRE.

Highly recommend Elena!
Elena has been instrumental in my GMAT prep. I found her by seeing her phenomenal reviews and I’ve experienced such great results since working with her. My scores have drastically improved thanks to her in a short amount of time. She has been so thorough in her explanations and really helped me identify my problem areas and work on them in depth. She is so knowledgeable about the GMAT and I can tell that she really has a passion for it. Elena taught me so many new strategies and a completely different, better way of approaching the test. She makes practicing problems fun. I highly recommend Elena if you are looking to improve your scores!Paulina, 16 lessons with Elena
Knowledgeable tutor! Highly recommended
My session with Elena was great, I had tutoring sessions before but this one's been my favorite so far in preparation for the GMAT. I sent her a list of questions that I was struggling with, and she walked me through them, providing general and specific topics, and also shared with me the notes, so I could review them later. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend taking a tutoring session with her!Carlos, 4 lessons with Elena

Excellent business calculus tutor. Patient and extremely knowledgable
Elena has been my tutor this semester for college level business calculus. As a returning student, I hadn’t seen Algebra in many years and had virtually forgotten most of it. As algebra is required in many steps of business calculus, Elena has been EXTREMELY patient with me. She is able to identify where my weaknesses are and puts together a road map for me to improve. I was hesitant to seek tutoring as I’ve never required it before, but Elena put me at ease instantly. She is well versed in all areas of math. While I came to her for business calculus, she has really helped improve my overall math skills. I’m now grasping concepts and visualizing solutions before even starting to write. I highly recommend Elena if you’re in need of a tutor. She has truly been a life saver!!Dan, 4 lessons with Elena

Highly Experienced and Patient Tutor
Elena is the hands down best tutor that I have ever had. She has a great way of making you understand numbers and the lesson for the day. I wish I had a teacher like her growing up. Thank you Elena.Alicia , 7 lessons with Elena
Excellent GRE Tutor
Elena's tutoring on the GRE quantitative section gave me the confidence to know I was going into the test as best prepared as I could be. Despite math being a significant weak point for me, she worked diligently and patiently to address the gaps in my knowledge, and never wavered in her belief that I could succeed. Her methods helped me learn not only the mathematical concepts, but also the invaluable test-taking strategies that can truly make all the difference. With her help, I was able to improve my score and gain acceptance to a masters program at Harvard University. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to improve their score.Cody, 12 lessons with Elena
My son Cole has worked with several tutors over the years and without doubt says Elena is the best. He met with her 4 times to help him improve his Math SAT score and took the SAT for the second time yesterday. He left the test confident he improvised his score by at least 100 points if not 200.Aaron, 4 lessons with Elena
