About Yana

I am a graduate of the University of Florida and Yale University. I am fluent in Russian, Hebrew, French, and Spanish and have intermediate knowledge of German. I can tutor students in reading, writing, listening comprehension, and speaking in the above languages. In addition to foreign languages, I have a passion for math and over eight years of tutoring experience in algebra and geometry. I am also passionate about biblical studies, ancient history, and religious studies.

Lesson plans will depend on each student’s level and desired concentration. We will work on the areas the student feels less comfortable with by using interactive teaching methods.

I am a patient, responsible, and dedicated teacher. I tutor individuals and groups of all ages and backgrounds, so don't hesitate to contact me for more information or if you have any questions.

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.

Algebra 1

I can help students with graphing, solving equations, evaluating expressions and inequalities, solving proportions and percents, analyzing quadratic functions, factoring, solving exponential expressions, as well as adding and subtracting polynomials.

Algebra 2

Factoring, solving functions, graphs, logarithmic functions, rational expressions, etc.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am an experienced math tutor and I have over 8 years of experience tutoring students in elementary math (K-6th). I can help students understand basic math definitions, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, algebraic equations, and how to interpret graphs and data. I have recently graduated from the University of Florida with a finance major and French and real estate minors.

French

I successfully completed AP French in high school and I minored in French at the University of Florida. In addition, I lived in Paris for five months through a study abroad program and was enrolled in an elite school (Sciences Po) where I took six classes taught in French. I am passionate about the language and I am a fluent French speaker. I can tutor students in grammar, vocabulary, and speaking. In addition, I can help students to prepare for the AP exam.

I can help students better understand basic computer functions such as how to conduct research on the internet, edit videos, use Microsoft office programs, build websites, etc.

Geometry

During geometry sessions the student will learn about the different types of angles, triangle classification, surface area calculation (cylinders, cones, spheres), and graphing lines.

Hebrew

I lived in Israel for 10 years, and I am a fluent speaker. I have more than 15 years of experience tutoring students in modern/scriptural Hebrew and preparing students for Bat and Bar Mitzvah. Sessions can include tutoring in reading, writing, comprehension, and speaking.

Prealgebra

Factorization, solving equations, working with decimals, negative numbers, and fractions.
