Great at tutoring chemistry, math and physics!!
I graduated from UC Davis with a degree in chemistry and I have over 8 years of tutoring exprience, substituting teaching and working in a group setting at a learning center. I tutor adults and children of all ages. I developed a passion for science early on and want to help others get excited about learning and pursuing careers in STEM. I don’t believe in simply memorizing steps to the problem, therefore I begin with basic concepts to tackle the topic and build on that, as well as apply...
I graduated from UC Davis with a degree in chemistry and I have over 8 years of tutoring exprience, substituting teaching and working in a group setting at a learning center. I tutor adults and children of all ages. I developed a passion for science early on and want to help others get excited about learning and pursuing careers in STEM. I don’t believe in simply memorizing steps to the problem, therefore I begin with basic concepts to tackle the topic and build on that, as well as apply concepts to everyday life. I help the student to approach a problem in a great deal to make sure the student understands. I try to engage the student in problem solving process by asking the student questions on how to approach the problem step by step. In order to assure myself the student grasped the subject, I ask the student to solve the problem themselves. I encourage students to ask questions which may arise during studying in between sessions.
Ms. Svetlana has recently began tutoring my teenager in physics. She is confident, knowledgeable, efficient, kind, patient, and organized, I can't say enough about how wonderful she is; I was very impressed. She teaches in a way that my child can relate, she gives examples, homework and always before moving forward she confirms my daughter is understanding what is being taught. We have seen improvement in our daughter's class work and grade in the short time we began tutoring with Svetlana, on days my daughter has a quiz/test Svetlana has even sent my daughter a text to ask how it went! We are very grateful we found her.Luz, 20 lessons with Svetlana
Knowledgeable and patient
Amazing tutor, very thorough. On time and detailed. Couldn’t ask for a better tutor. She is comforting and knows her stuff for sure. Highly recommend. She takes her time and doesn’t rush. Makes me more confident in learning math.Misty, 2 lessons with Svetlana
Off to a great start with Svetlana. She really took her time to explain things back to the basics to make sure I fully understood what it was that was in front of me. I appreciate her patience and her making me feel comfortable with not knowing much. She has already helped me understand things so much better in just an hour of meeting. Looking forward to more time with her.Melinda, 7 lessons with Svetlana
Wonderful way of explaining hard concepts!
Svetlana had a fantastic way of explaining physics hard concepts that initially caused me a lot of confusion during class. She did this in a way that quickly clarified key concepts. It's a fantastic quality in a tutor, teacher and educator! She also helped me review manipulating equations, since this caused me a lot of anxiety during problem solving and during exams. She did this in a way that helped me to understand and gain confidence. Before the end of each session she would have me practice applying concepts by solving actual problems with little help. This ensured I really had a firm grasp of how to solve problems of that nature during exams. She even made herself available for asking questions outside of our sessions. She really has a wonderful tutoring strategy and a fantastic way of communicating. I highly recommend her for physics and plan on continuing tutoring with her for chemistry too!Cori, 6 lessons with Svetlana
Knowledgeable and patient tutor!
Svetlana was willing to add us on to her schedule last minute, and was patient and kind with my daughter during the session. We look forward to working with her on a regular basis now.Janis, 9 lessons with Svetlana
Great first lesson with my son!
Great start for my son! By the end of the lesson, I could see the weight come off his shoulders. Svetlana has a calming, approachable style that gave him a confidence boost. Loved it so much that we booked another lesson right away.Jennifer, 26 lessons with Svetlana
Great Chemistry Tutor!
I had two two hour sessions with Svetlana for college level Chemistry. She was able to explain concepts I had trouble with and help with all the practice problems I brought. I definitely recommend her to anyone having trouble in Chemistry.Aarti, 2 lessons with Svetlana
