About Maiia

I started teaching more then 20 years ago. I've been a class instructor and an tutor. I've been dealing with College Algebra, Trigonometry, Statistics, Calculus of different levels, Differential Equations and Linear Algebra. And I know how to explain fractions so you will remember them forever.

I prefer tutoring to lecture since the first is much more adaptable to individual needs and can be modified on a fly to be more effective. I know that "not understanding math" often means some misses and gaps from previous experience, which need to be filled. When I'm explaining mathematics I always make sure that my student understands background to move further.

I know that people have different motives to study math. Majority need to pass an exam. Some need to be prepared to future studies. My duty is to help each my student.

Cancellation Policy.
The following policies are outlined below and apply to all students:

1) If given more than 6 hours notice, I will not charge for the lesson.
2) If given less than 6 hours and up until an hour before the lesson, I reserve the right to charge 50% my rate for the lesson length.
3) If given less than an hour, I reserve the right to charge for the entire lesson at the full rate.
4) If I miss a lesson without more than 1 hours notice, the student reserves the right to request the next lesson of equivalent length for no fee.

Tardiness:
1) If a student is more than 15 minutes late, I will charge for the length of the actual lesson plus a 50% rate for every minute late to the nearest 5 minute mark.
2) If I am more than 15 minutes late, or if I miss a lesson without more than 6 hours notice, the student reserves the right to request 50% rate for the length of the lesson.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Calculus

Calculus is very different from all previous math and it hits students like a truck. It requires a different approach and a new set of study skills. As somebody who taught calculus for years I know what kind of troubles students encounter here and what to do not just to help them with a particular problem but to ensure their progress in the future.

Logic

I have been studying math logic at university and took 3 semester-long courses because I liked it. I taught a bit of logic in a discrete math course.

Precalculus

Calculus is very different from all math students have had before. It requires a new approach and new set of skills, which can be unexpected. I can quickly explain why and what is needed.
