About Olya

Teaching is not a profession but a calling for me. Ever since college I have been tutoring and helping students excel in their studies and acquire a love of learning. I hold degrees in education and psychology from Sofia University and have studied at Oxford University.

A versatile tutor, I offer assistance in a wide variety of subjects - all levels of mathematics (elementary math, pre-algebra, algebra, trigonometry, statistics, pre-calculus, and calculus), physics, chemistry, English, and Spanish. I have helped a number of students with standardized test preparation - SSAT, ISEE, PSAT, SAT, ACT, and GRE, and their scores have increased dramatically.

A lesson with me leaves the student with an understanding of the subject matter, a sense of security and confidence, and a feeling of self-worth. My sessions are engaging, efficient, and extremely productive. I can switch with ease between different subjects depending on the student's needs.

Generally, I see students either at my office or at my home but I am willing to travel if this is necessary. However, I have noticed that students focus better when they come to me. Discounts are available to students who commit to having a regular schedule early in the academic year. My cancellation policy is six hours before the lesson.

I am looking forward to working with my present and future students.
