I am a patient, dedicated, and experienced teacher. My main goal and great pride is the success of my students. My educational background is Master's in Engineering from Russia, Certificate of proficiency in languages from Higher Courses of Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russian Federation, and Certificate of Teaching Knowledge from Cambridge University. My professional experience includes: teaching Mathematics, Russian and ESL for about 20 years in Russia and since 2011 in the USA. In 2007 I also started teaching online in Skype and later in my own virtual classroom.

Being native of Russia and speaking fluent English allows me to deliver lessons for English and Russian speakers in their first language. It also allows me easily identify and prevent the difficulties that my students may encounter when they study new language.

As a math teacher I know Russian and American schools of mathematics and help my students with understanding core concepts based on their individual experience and with the pace which is comfortable for them.

I work with students from 5 to 75 years old, got teaching awards from EF school, and appreciation from my students and colleagues from Russian school and from Monterey Peninsula college. But my best reward is the success of my students. I apply individual approach, implement modern technologies and create trustful atmosphere with serious fun to make my lessons involving and memorable. My online virtual classroom has interactive boards, video and audio communication and I employ special techniques for memorizing with fun. My Power Point presentations are famous all over the world and I can teach you how to create your own masterpieces. You are welcome to try the first free 30 min lesson live or online, and I am ready to do my best for your success.

Very patient and friendly

I have only had one lesson with Victoria (as well as an introduction session), but I already like her very much. The way she teaches Russian so far has been easy to understand and fun as well.

Madrona, 50 lessons with Victoria

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Victoria is teaching my 5-year-old son reading and writing in Russian. Great progress just in a few weeks. Super approachable for the kid and very nice. She knows exactly what she's doing. Fantastic teaching method and patient guidance. Would highly recommend.

Olga, 21 lessons with Victoria

Most amazing and sweet teacher

In less than a month, Victoria greatly improved my knowledge of the Russian language. She was extremely knowledgeable with Russian culture and even researched topics specific to my interests. Now I feel confident and ready for my trip to a Russia to attend the Bolshoi Ballet Academy, all thanks to her!

Yuki, 11 lessons with Victoria

Amazing tutor

I’m a beginner. Victoria is very responsive to my skill level and switches her instruction seamlessly to keep me engaged. She never lets me get overwhelmed and discouraged. Excellent at reading and responding to her students.

Pete, 24 lessons with Victoria

Lessons with Kids are Phenomenal

Victoria worked with farm animals and colors with the kids. We really enjoy that she uses educational games to teach the kids lessons. She is very patient and does a good job of keeping the kids engaged the entire lesson. My kids look forward to lessons with Victoria every week!

Aimee', 17 lessons with Victoria

Adjusts to different learning styles

I really appreciate how Victoria understands how I think and process information. This is a unique and highly underrated skill.

Sarah, 2 lessons with Victoria

Patient, intelligent and kind

Victoria is very knowledgeable in math, explains concepts very well, and is patient with her students. She is also very flexible on days/times to meet... something we value with our busy schedules!

Dana, 2 lessons with Victoria

Flexibility is the key

Victoria is always very willing to work with the pupil to fit the most desirable times. For example, when my son could not meet w/her at one time, she was very willing to meet with us at a more desirable time for us. That is a good thing.

Mary, 8 lessons with Victoria

Accommodating!

Victoria is a new-to-us tutor. On her second official session with my child, I asked if she would also tutor my older child, who had a math test the next day. My older child was in a panic as she did not understand the math lessons, and neither did I. Long story short, in a matter of minutes Victoria went from expecting to tutor one child, to three children. She was gracious, skilled, and highly effective! We are grateful she was able to squeeze in our daughter and her friend. We highly recommend Victoria, the kids all did great on their math test, and most importantly, they had confidence walking into that test. Victoria will be tutoring all three kids from now on!
