About Misha


Bio

I have always loved doing Mathematics and enjoy helping others to understand it better. I began tutoring around 1985 when I began college. From 1985 to 1988, I tutored at SUNY New Paltz and Dutchess Community College. I helped college students learn Math for Elementary School Teachers, College Algebra, Geometry, Calculus 1, 2, and 3. I graduated in 1988 with an AA in Mathematics. I then was tutoring through the Arlington School District as a Home Teacher until 1994. Students who could not...

I have always loved doing Mathematics and enjoy helping others to understand it better. I began tutoring around 1985 when I began college. From 1985 to 1988, I tutored at SUNY New Paltz and Dutchess Community College. I helped college students learn Math for Elementary School Teachers, College Algebra, Geometry, Calculus 1, 2, and 3. I graduated in 1988 with an AA in Mathematics. I then was tutoring through the Arlington School District as a Home Teacher until 1994. Students who could not go to school I taught them all their subjects at their homes. The students ranged from 1st to 12th grade. In 1994 I moved to Arizona and was a Private Tutor for Math students in Sedona. In 1995 to 1996 I lived in Alaska. I also did Private tutoring there in Mathematics. One of my students was enrolled at the University of Alaska at Fairbanks. I tutored him in Differential Equations.

When I returned to NY in 1996, I resumed work as a Home Teacher for the Arlington School District for another 2 years plus continued to tutor Mathematics as a Private Tutor. I enjoy helping students understand math better. I try to create problems related to my students' interests to make math easier to relate to and also fun to learn. I especially find it gratifying when I am able to help students increase their math grades.

I was a straight A student in Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus 1, Calculus 2, Calculus 3, Differential Equations, and Physics 1 & 2. I earned an Associates of Arts degree in Mathematics from Dutchess Community College in Poughkeepsie, NY with a GPA of 3.93. I also earned a BA in Psychology (minor Anthropology) from State University of New York (SUNY) at New Paltz (Magna Cum Laude Honors).

Currently I am tutoring students in Basic Math (Pre-algebra), Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry, Precalculus, and SAT/ACT Prep (Math section only). I wish to make Math easy to understand and enjoyable for others.

I currently am tutoring 3 students in Algebra 2 in the New Paltz School District. They just finished a unit on Exponents and Logarithms two weeks ago. This week they covered Arithmetic and Geometric Sequences. I also have been tutoring a student in SAT Prep on Wednesdays the last 3 weeks.

SAT Math

I have tutored many students in preparation for the Math portion of the PSAT, SAT, and ACT. The practice done during our tutoring session has helped give students the skills and ability to master the types of question on these tests. With the assistance of my tutoring, many students have found these to be less hard and easier to pass with better grades than without the tutoring preparation.

Excellent

Misha is an Excellent tutor. She takes her time and most importantly she cares about her students doing well. She makes learning complicated problems seem manageable and simple to understand. She shows how to work through every single problem the right way. We are thankful to have such a tutor, I just wish we had her years ago. You will not be disappointed.
