About Olga

From helping middle school students master basic mathematical skills to working with higher level students so that they can achieve perfect scores on their AP Calculus, SAT, and SAT II exams, I enjoy customizing my teaching to the individual’s unique needs and level.

As a former university professor and a certified teacher of mathematics in NJ with over 38 years of experience, I am an expert at working with students to develop their skills and strengthen their understanding of concepts. My decades of teaching experience allow me to easily diagnose my students’ confusion and misunderstanding so that they may reach their goals and find great success. My teaching method involves finding an individualized approach to each student and then presenting even the most complex material in a readily understandable form. I enjoy working with students in a variety of settings. From large lecture halls to small groups to one-on-one study, I pride myself on professionalism, patience, and outstanding results for students at all levels of learning (middle school, high school, college, and graduate levels).

My interest in mathematics began during my days as a student when I delighted in helping my teachers explain mathematical concepts to my classmates. Starting at an early age, I developed a fascination with the history of mathematics and the lives of the great mathematicians. Years later, I went on to compete for and win a coveted place at the prestigious Lomonosov State University of Moscow, where I earned my M.S. My mathematical background also includes lecturing and teaching Calculus and special math courses to the students of Novocherkassk Polytechnic Institute, where I received my Ph.D. Novocherkassk Polytechnic Institute is southern Russia’s oldest polytechnic institute; there, I had the pleasure of teaching many future engineers who went on to work both in Russia and abroad. More recently, I have been working with classes in NJ schools and tutoring WyzAnt students.

I can teach Algebra, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Geometry, Trigonometry, Matrix Algebra, Vector Algebra, Laurent and Taylor series, Fourier series, Operational Computing including Laplace Transform and its application to Differential Calculus, equations of mathematical Physics, and the theory of probabilities.

I will travel to your home or local library.


Thank you.

Sincerely,
Olga

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.
