About Lida

I am a strongly academic-career directed person who is interested in teaching Mathematics, Physics and Spanish. I have taken every opportunity to teach. I have participated in various teaching programs, which provided me with excellent opportunities to develop my skills as a professional instructor. My teaching experience in educational institutions is more than five years and includes tutoring to students ranging from primary school to university level.

Not only I have been teaching Physics theory and demonstrating in the laboratory to high school students, but I have also taught mathematical and logical thinking, geometry, statics, algebra, basic mathematics, trigonometry and calculus.

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.
