Knowledge and Patient

Nikita taught me the alphabet as a new adult. His instruction is easy to follow and he is accommodating with his time. Great instructor to learn a new language!

Nancy, 2 lessons with Nikita

Knowledgeable and smart tutor!

He taught me in depth about how to approach a problem and excel and think about the different ways to tackle it. We went over various formulas and ways to solve problems. We reviewed several tactics. It was a session that left me confident in excel.
