To help you reach your personal academic goals, (whether it be pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, Trig, pre-Calculus or Calculus, SAT, and/or the ACT test preparation, or may be GRE preparation for an older audience) I will find your weak topics and help you understand it fully. For that, I analyze your previous work and we discuss what you did and why. I will help you to see the logic in the solution and understand the relationship between concepts. Between sessions, I will happily answer short questions off the clock by Wyzant messaging system, email, or Skype.

For the SAT/ACT test takers my plan is usually for a student to take the practice test at home or school, then grade it and come back to me with the results. We will diagnose your problems (as in “didn’t have enough time”, “don’t know how to approach a problem like this”, “didn’t read the problem carefully”, “made a calculation error”, “didn’t know the definition” and so on) and work specifically on that. I always customize my lesson programs in accordance with student's' need, for example, I can give you practice problems that you can work on in between lessons and it will help you to solidify your understanding.

I create a very comfortable learning environment, you will enjoy your intellectual achievements during our sessions.

I worked successfully with students of all levels, including those who were struggling with elementary level math, those who needed more help with the GT program, participated at Math Olympics, or struggle with the high school or college classes. My students’ grades and self-confidence showed improvement even after the first class.

I have many years of experience teaching mathematics, in several countries and to different people. I worked as a university instructor, volunteered with struggling kids at local schools, tutored for test preparation, and led activities at a summer camp for gifted children. I also worked a lot with homeschooling community. I worked successfully online and offline, in a group setting and one on one.

I have a master's degree in Mathematics from Cleveland State University and could help with a deep understanding of my subjects well behind the school level. It will help you later in your study and work. My students not only improve the grades and move up in a class rank but also like math much more after working with me. Some of them actually stopped being afraid of math and started to enjoy it!

I am flexible with time. I do have the 24-hour cancellation policy and also my students have an opportunity to reschedule the class they cannot attend. It is important to me that my students have a choice to work with me online, so there are fewer chances of weather-connected emergencies in our work together.

Russian

Russian

Russian is my native language, and when I started to do tutoring I found out that many people would like me to teach them not Math but Russian. I am tutoring for a few years now. I was teaching one on one and I had a class of a few students. I was working in a class environment and also through video chat like Skype. Some students would prefer to work on the curriculum they are using in school or college right now, and learning with me in this situation was more a supplement to the classwork. Some were going to Russia or expected visitors from Russia. In this situation we more worked on the goals they had. I was teaching them to read Cyrillic, being able to understand names of streets, train stations and use a dictionary. We also work on the expressions that my students need to know on the daily basis. As a professional teacher I recognize some teaching methods my ESL teachers used and add my own variation of those methods to my professional tools.

Very Helpful With Math

Marina was very helpful with Trigonometry. She explained everything. My daughter loved the way she teach. She also said we can call her anytime we need her help.

Great experience

Marina tutored Sophia for an Algebra review. She is patient and very knowledgeable and can also help students envision more creative solutions in Algebra.

Great Tutor!

Marina was very patient with me while we had our lesson. I really like how she could answer any questions I had, and in almost all cases better than my teachers in school could.
