About Carina

As a recent college grad, I know the pains of learning new information and I am very patient in helping students achieve their highest learning potentials.

My specialties include most science topics (biology, genetics, chemistry, biochemistry etc.) math (algebra, calculus) and English. I have worked as an academic tutor in my last semester of college by proofreading and editing the papers of my college peers. For the past three years I have worked as a 6-8th grade science tutor. I also have experience with taking many standardized tests like the SAT, ACT and the MCAT so I can be a useful asset in helping students study for upcoming exams by formulating effective and efficient study techniques.

I am professional, personable and friendly so I work well with kids, peers and adults. I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

ACT Math

I have ACT Math, Reading, and Science qualifications from WyzAnt.

Algebra 1

I have previous and current experience tutoring algebra 1 to oncoming high school students. This is one of my favorite subjects to teach because there are many approaches to algebra along with a very fast learning rate.

Algebra 2

Understanding Algebra II is essential for standardized testing. I work with several students to prepare them for the ACT and often I am reteaching algebra topics. With practice, algebra is very easily mastered.


During my four years of college I completed an honors business minor, a comprehensive curriculum which included: financial accounting, managerial accounting, finance, management, marketing, and both macro/micro economics. In my sophomore year I was initiated into Delta Sigma Pi, a professional business fraternity where I was taught business etiquette and held a position as VP of professional events.

Elementary Math

In college, I tutored a group of elementary students twice a week in science and math. The commitment was difficult but it was worth seeing the improvement of my students' grades.

Microsoft Project

I use Microsoft Project at work and find it to be an incredibly useful resource for project management. The essentials of MS Project are to schedule tasks and manage resources. I enjoy tutoring the basics of this program because it really helps individuals advance in their career.


I am qualified to tutor nutrition because in the last two years of college I wrote a thesis on the repercussions of dieting. This thesis required a lot of nutritional research. I graduated with a biochemistry degree which exposed me to many topics of nutrition and I currently work as a food scientist.


I was born in Russia and I lived there for five years. I speak Russian fluently in my home and I have taken a Russian course in college. From this class, I have accumulated textbooks that would aid in mastering Russian grammar.

Study Skills

I have more than 8 years of study skills due to my involvement in the IB (International Baccalaureate) program in high school as well as obtaining a biochemistry/business degree in college. As an avid student, I have many tips on how to study best. For instance: always study in a public place, change up the location where you study so that your brain is more versatile and always bring snacks.


I have Writing qualifications obtained by WyzAnt.
