Princeton University (Psychology)
As a child of first-generation Russian immigrants, I value education above all else. I went on to attend Princeton University and graduated with a degree in Psychology and fulfilled pre-med requirements. Recently, I moved to Boston to work at a biotech nonprofit organization, where I help run our communications and policy programs.
Throughout college, I tutored many middle and high school students in underperforming schools, specializing in math, writing, and college preparation. There was nothing more rewarding than seeing my students achieve leaps and bounds of progress in school. It affirmed my strong belief that hard work pays off, and I'm excited about the opportunity to continue working with students in the Boston area to help them achieve their goals.
I specialize in math, writing, chemistry and biology, for test preparation on the ACT and SAT as well as general success in school. I also help with college essay writing and advising. Regardless of the subject, I understand that every student learns differently and will strive to customize my lessons to each student's personal learning style. I want them to feel challenged and to learn how to critically think about problems from different angles, instead of memorizing formulas.
I will try to be as flexible as I can, ready to meet you at locations throughout Boston on most evenings and weekend days. We would meet at a coffee shop or a library at a mutually convenient location. I have a 12-hour cancellation policy, but will do my best to accommodate changing schedules and schedule make-up lessons when needed.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping you reach your academic goals this year! As a child of first-generation Russian immigrants, I value education above all else.

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.
