Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (Chemical Engineering)
I have 9+ years of experience tutoring SAT math, GRE math, algebra 1 and 2, pre-calculus, calculus, trigonometry, and geometry. I've also tutored chemistry and physics.
I was a teaching assistant in college for an introductory engineering course dealing primarily with statics.
I have been a volunteer tutor for ESL so I have experience working with adults as well as kids and teens.
I look forward to helping you achieve the results you'd like to see. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or to request references.
Thank you for your consideration. I have 9+ years of experience tutoring SAT math, GRE math, algebra 1 and 2, … Read more
Rates depend on difficulty of subject matter, amount of prep needed, and the number of people tutored. The rate is based on a 2 hour minimum. A shorter session will have a higher hourly rate.
Galina is an excellent tutor! My daughter needed help in Algebra and Chemistry. After only two meetings she went from averaging 70's on tests to 90's!! She is worth every last penny. I cannot say enough about her teaching methods and knowledge. She found a way to reach my daughter at her level of understanding. Outstanding!
She made sure my daughter was comfortable and confident before approaching another difficulty in the same subject. She was patient and empowering.
Galina is an excellent tutor. She is very knowledgeable about math and was a tremendous help preparing me for a calculus test.
My son accidentally grabbed his English notebook instead of physics for his session with Galina. I could see he was frustrated, but Galina was able to ask him what he was working on in class, ask a few questions about the subject, and then they were able to work for the full session on problems from her own knowledge. My son left feeling better about the topic and wants to continue working with her for physics this year. Not easy with a boy who does not get excited about school much.
Galina has worked with 2 of my daughters, one for math and one for college chem. She did great with both of them I would highly recommend her.
Galina was extremely helpful with Algebra II Honors. She was very accommodating to our schedule and was even available to meet during a holiday weekend. She was always encouraging us to contact her during the week with any questions. We were both impressed with her level of knowledge. We would definitely recommend her as a tutor.
Galina was extremely patient and quickly assessed exactly what I needed. Her help thus far, has helped me to advance in my Chemistry course with confidence.
Galina responded to our original posting within 24 hours and was able to meet with my son for a Chemistry lesson within the following 48 hours. Galina's teaching methods are effective. She is knowledgeable. Galina reached my son at his level of knowledge and considered his needs for the upcoming Chemistry test. We not hesitate to contact Galina in the future.
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.
