About Svetlana

Math has always been my specialty. I completed two years of college engineering math (Calculus, differential equations and multivariable calculus) at UC Santa Barbara while I was still in high school, earning a straight A average and a place on the Dean's honors list before I was even a full time student. In 4 years I earned bachelors degrees in Electrical Engineering and Physics. Five years later I completed my doctorate in Electrical Engineering at UC Berkeley with an emphasis in electromagnetics and radio astronomy. I have over 20 years of industry experience. The last 12 years I have been a consultant through my own small company, Anacapa North, and specialize in radar propagation simulation and radar detection and discrimination algorithms.
I have two sons. One is at Berkeley doing graduate work in chemistry . The other is starting at San Jose state in biology and computer science. I have always enjoyed helping students. When I was in high school I was a tutor through our honor society. In college I was always helping my friends. In graduate school I was a teaching assistant for one quarter, and would always hold review sessions for the qualifying exams and help at office hours even though I was not the official teaching assistant. Since my oldest started elementary school, I have been a regular in the classroom as my job permitted, both helping the class as a whole and tutoring individual kids who needed help. I have tutored my own kid for the SAT and SATII. I have helped them study for many AP exams, including Calculus BC and physics. I really enjoyed this time, and miss it now that they are out of the K-12 school system. My consulting business is part-time and gives me a flexible schedule so I am fairly available for tutoring. I look forward to tutoring your child in math and science.

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.

Algebra 1

I completed 2 years of college engineering math at UC Santa Barbara while still in high school. I have two sons that I have helped extensively with math as well as volunteered in their classroom.

Calculus

I began Calculus at UC Santa Barbara when I was 15 years old. Finished two years of college math with a 4.0 average before I graduated from high school.

I have a doctorate in electrical engineering and use Calculus on a regular basis.

Differential Equations

I took calculus and differential equations at UC Santa Barbara when I was 15 and have been using them ever since. I have a doctorate in electrical engineering that I received from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1992. My specialization was electromagnetics. My Masters thesis involved the numerical solution of Maxwell's equations.

Electrical Engineering

I have a doctorate in electrical engineering that I received from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1992. My specialization was electromagnetics.

Fortran

I studied Fortran as part of my curriculum for a bachelors in Electrical Engineering at UC Santa Barbara in 1983. Since them I have written numerous simulations and radar data processing programs in Fortran for my consulting business.

Precalculus

Math has always been my specialty. I took two years of calculus at UC Santa Barbara while still in high school. I obtained a doctorate in engineering and now have a small consulting company where I math extensively on a daily basis.
