About Misha

Hello there! I'm a twenty year old senior at the University of Nevada Reno. I'm studying communication, psychology and Italian language. I grew up in Reno and am well acquainted with how hard it can be to get ahead in our school system and want to help.

When I was in the sixth grade I was asked to join what was called the Read and Succeed program (where I came to find out I was the only other student, everyone else was a parent) and helped teach younger children to read with one-on-one sessions.

Skip ahead about ten years and I found myself teaching psychology 101 in UNR's PSI program which is where students that have previously taken psy 101 become student proctors and teach students at all skill levels (remedial to excelling) in a one-on-one setting. I'm outgoing, easy to get along with and love making a difference.

The written word has always been my strongest subject, my composite ACT score was a 30 (I've long since forgotten the parceled scores) and passed both AP English tests with fours in high school.

Alright, so I'm not the stereotypical tutor, I have bright purple hair and will put on your favorite music in a session, but I'd far rather have my students in a comfortable, approachable environment where they can ask me questions than intimidate them with a high power distance and a "my-way-or-the-highway" attitude. Everyone learns differently and that's perfectly okay, I'm not here to tell you how to learn, only to help you do so.

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.

ACT English

When I took the ACT, I passed with a composite of thirty. English was my highest individual score. I took and passed both AP English classes in high school and have been tutoring it for people that went to my high school for years.

ACT Reading

I was tested and have had a grade 13+ reading level since the third grade, I also taught reading to children. It's always been one of my greatest strengths and favorite skills to teach.

Public Speaking

Public speaking is to create a character, someone to persuade an audience to your story; whether this be Iago from Othello or an informed person giving a TED talk. the person you present public speaking is often not your everyday self, in essence it's acting. from ages 7 to 16 I performed on stage in various plays, improv productions and took more than my fair share of acting classes, previous to that however I had debilitating stage fright which is something that never really goes away but can be dealt with given the proper tools. Aside from my history on stage I'm also a communication major where thus far I've had to take one specifically public speaking class, but all my communication classes have had a public speaking aspect to them.
