“**Highly Recommended!**”

I graduated from UC Davis with a degree in chemistry. I took chemistry, physics and math courses throughout my college years. I worked as the undergraduate researcher at UC Davis in lab. It helped me improve my lab skills and grow. It allowed me to work on projects independently. I conducted experiments, maintained equipment, and analyzed data.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Svetlana is very patient and thoughtful. She is always able to help out with our problems. My daughter loves her!

Svetlana is very nice and let the student feel very comfortable, she knows how to explain and answer the question clearly.

Svetlana knows her stuff and is very professional. She is patient and very good at teaching the Russian language. She checks with me to ensure I understand what is being taught. I think she is an excellent tutor

We are blessed to have Svetlana teaches our daughter chemistry. She has made Chemistry so much easy to understand. She breaks down the process step by step and clearly explained the concept. Svetlana is also very patient, kind, and caring. Thank you so much for your help!

In the matter of the one hour lesson, she was able to help me with some practice problems and help explain why a certain problem had a certain answer. She was very nice and patient with me. She also knows a lot about physics and she was able to help by explain things step by step.

Svetlana is a wonderful tutor. She is a very patient person. She helped me to understand math problems to help me prepare for the CBEST test. She made sure that I understood the math problems and steps before moving on to the next problem. She was able to meet up with me with short notice and I am grateful for that. I highly recommend her.

Svetlana has been a great tutor for my son. He was struggling in Algebra and now my son has a "A" in the class. My son seems not to stress out any more, he seems more confident. Thank you Svetlana for all your help.

Svetlana showed my daughter the necessary steps at a pace she could grasp. My daughter was more confident after she had just one session with her. She is very professional and knowledgeable.

Svetlana helped me with trigonometry and chemistry. She made sure I understood the material and even took the time to send me worksheets to help me practice. Svetlana prepared a lesson for each tutoring session which I appreciated and it showed me that she actually wants to help me succeed.

She does not have any peers. Svetlana is indispensable to Tyler's education. No other tutor can even come remotely close to her attention and positive effect on him. She stays up with his teachers, his progress, and ostensibly his advancement. She is more of an inspiration and more of a teacher than any instruction he receives at school. He learns from HER...

I had the pleasure and privilege of being tutored by Svetlana. She is very knowledgeable, thorough with the material. It was a really good experience. She makes Physics so much simple. I would definitely recommend Svetlana for anybody who is struggling, or wants to improve a grade in Physics. Guaranteed.

Very patient and friendly. She made sure I understood every little nuance of the problem sets before moving on to the next which was very helpful, and in the end, very rewarding.

She is very cooperative, patient and does a great job at explaining well. If something is not understood she goes back to the material to review it and make sure that I understand it.

Svetlana knows her material and is an excellent tutor. She doesn't rush through the physics problems. After our son sees her, he has a much better grasp of the material.

She is very patient! And she helped a lot on my general chemistry. She has a good way to teach and makes me understand many difficult problems. She is very good!

She is nice and friendly and takes her time to explain every concept in chemistry to my daughter. Being the first year for my daughter in high school chemistry and she was not doing well in the chemistry class, Svetlana is able to put her through the basics. With her teaching approach, my daughter feels more comfortable in the chemistry class and she is able to help my daughter "catch-up" in her class.

Svetlana is a great tutor! Very patient, and always makes sure you've learned the topic. My score on organic chem double after I started my first tutoring lesson. I like that she answers questions about a topic even out of tutoring hrs. I highly recommend her! She is very smart!

She knows what she's teaching. I tried other tutor before, who had chemistry degree, but she couldn't be detailed with her answer. I was worried that all other chemistry tutors would be like the first tutor, but Svetlana seems to love her major and knows what she's dealing with.

If you have questions in chemistry, she's a person who will make sure you get the answer.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

I received a chemistry degree. I took math classes: Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Trigonometry, Precalculus, Calculus 1, Calculus 2, Calculus 3, Vector Analysis, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations. I also took verious physics classes such as mathimatical physics, analytical mechanics. I have strong background in math. I tutored children in elementary math, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Calculus 1. I prefer to go over each problem in a detail to make sure the student understands the idea of why this problem is given, the purpose, and then how to solve the problem.
