About Sasha

Most tutors become tutors because of their natural ability in a subject area. While this is true of me also, I have noticed that I also have a natural ability in the overall field of tutoring. I can quickly see what piece a student is missing, and I can fill it. This may sound strange but it is a real thing that's absolutely concrete.

Often the teachers of statistics or accounting are there because of their ability in the subject matter, which does not mean that they have any business being a teacher, because education is a skill in itself. To teach is to find the seed in the student, and bring it forth.

Sometimes, the thing that is holding a student back is themselves. It's usually cleverly disguised and attached to the deeper secrets of who a person really is. There is something about the drive to be who are, that is the most strict form of confinement there can ever be. What holds someone back is something that's able to disguise itself as something good. A person's failure to see this is what makes easy things turn hard. False difficulty is what makes life seem hard rather than challenging.

I can turn most people around quite quickly, but I'll stay as long as you need me.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Elementary Math

Elementary math is the foundation for all future learning and academic achievement. A strong broad knowledge base makes a future achiever. Early learning should be fun so that the student can get their facts straight.

Managerial Accounting

I have extensive knowledge in managerial accounting and have tutored this as my primary subject area.

Prealgebra

I have been working with high school students for almost 15 years and have tutored precollege math for the past four years, including Prealgebra.

SAT Math

I scored in the 99th percentile on the math section of the SATs.

Swimming

I have spent a number of years as a Red Cross Certified Lifeguard. I have taught a number of people to swim over the years, and after providing for their basic safety needs, the trick is to pretend you're not drowning.
