I am a teacher and professor with 12 years of experience in NJ schools and 6 years at NYU and Montclair State University. As a high school teacher, I taught various sections of high school Mathematics and Science. I have passed the Praxis Mathematics Teacher certification exams with a Certificate of Excellence (top 15%) and hold two NJ valid standard teacher's certificates. I have also been awarded the Geraldine R. Dodge Fellowship Award for alternate route teachers.

I have been tutoring for SAT, ACT, GRE, and other standardized tests for many years. Besides a Ph.D. in Science (Physical Geography and Climatology) from the oldest and most prestigious university in Russia, Moscow University named after M.Lomonosov, I have an M.F.A. in creative writing, so I can teach both math and verbal sections of SAT, ACT, and GRE. I am an award-winning writer and poet, the author of nine collections of poetry and translations in Russian, and my English-Language manuscript is forthcoming in 2016 from a nationally recognized New York based press. I am also the editor as a major bilingual literary project and a co-editor of the first comprehensive English-language anthology of Russian Poetry, the award-winning volume that came out in 2015 the UK. I am one of those student-oriented teachers: my teaching is flexible, creative, and invariably focused on the individual student and his/her specific learning needs, and not on some rigid rules or practices.

I am certified to use the exceptionally effective WyzAnt Online Tutoring platform. Between WyzAnt Online Tutoring and traditional Skype, I can now tutor students from all states and all walks of life. Meet me once and you will see that I am YOUR teacher!

Knowledgeable and Committed!

I happened to contact Irina looking for immediate help with the GRE right as she was leaving on a trip, and she still took time out of her day packing and getting ready to have a session with me through Skype! She was able to give me more tips and tricks within an hour than any other classroom has. Very knowledgeable about the GRE and knows exactly what needs to be done to help improve your score. I am super excited to continue my tutoring with Irina!

Irina is fantastic

I truly enjoy working with Irina as my tutor for my GRE prep. She worked to diagnose my problem areas and has adapted my lessons to help improve them. She is extremely patient and knowledgeable about test preparation. I would highly recommend Irina to anyone looking for a GRE tutor. After just a couple of sessions I have learned so much and can't wait to tell her how well I did on my test!

Great tutor!

Irina is very nice, patient, understanding, and clever in making you understand the material. She is quite funny as well. She helps you visualize things in an easier way and helps you solve the best and fastest way. Only had one math session but looking forward to 10 more with her! I know she has already increased my score on the gre that I will take in August. I have bad test anxiety and she changes your perspective of the exam so that it is not so intimidating. That being said, having a great mind set before taking the gre and knowing how to approach it is a must. I am looking forward to more sessions. I deffinitely recommend her.
