## Excellent

Zoya, 27 lessons with MishaMisha 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.

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 tutored many students over the years in Algebra 2 both in New York State and around the US via online platforms. Algebra is one of my favorite subjects. I enjoy helping students get a better understanding of the material.

I have helped prepare students for both the PSAT and the SAT. I teach students the tips and tricks to do well on SAT Math because it is its own Math. Without good prep, most students do poorly or not as well as they expect even straight A Math students. It is because how the PSAT and SAT questions are worded and structured which is more based on logic and analytical skills. I have created a Tips and Tricks worksheet as well as Packets of questions so students learn to see patterns in SAT questions. With this knowledge, they don't get fooled by the traps in PSAT and SAT questions. Often students find the prep eye-opening. Many end up improving their math grades in school after they have learned the shortcuts from PSAT/SAT Math prep with my tutoring.

#### GED

I have been tutoring students who are preparing to take the GED. I have assisted them in reviewing and understanding the Math concepts needed to pass the GED. These include solving systems of equations, systems of inequalities, exponents, scientific notation, graphing and finding slope of lines, and solving word problems. We review Geometry problems that involve finding perimeter, area, volume, or surface area. I make sure students understand the basics as well as how to use the reference sheet and calculator to answer the questions. I try to show them techniques of looking at the entire problem including the answer to help form a strategy to help them answer each question.

## great tutor

The tutor was patient and knowledgeable. The approach to problem solving was very useful. We look forward to scheduling additional lessons.Thank you Misha!

## grateful

It’s been great having Misha help my son get through some of his math troubles. He has gained confidence and is less anxious about math tests and quizzes since we have had her help. He already received his first A in math after one lesson and some review with his dad. It’s been a weight off of our shoulders.

## Patient, Kind and Knowledgeable Tutor!

Misha is a phenomenal tutor! My son who is in 7th grade did not like math at all. He absolutely hated it. Misha was able to break down the problems for him to understand better, which gave him more confidence to want to do math. Also Misha is extremely patient. Anytime my son quite doesn't understand something she is more than willing to go back over it with him, so he can grasp the proper understanding. You will not regret having Misha as a math tutor!

## Very helpful for understanding Algebra II Concepts!

My daughters find their time working with Misha on Algebra II content very helpful. She gives them deeper understanding into the topics they are studying. She is super friendly and patient.

## Misha was very patient and ready to explain the problems in detail.

Misha was very patient and ready to explain the problems in detail. she understands that everyone learns at their own pace. It was math I was having to study I took the test 3 times. and the last try missed it by 1 point. with frustration from not passing it. I felt I needed help. I knew some of the stuff. so I felt a tutor was the best fit for me. I came across Misha I liked her description of herself. and the picture of the dog. (Animal Lover) she was flexible. and at times had to re-show me how to figure out a equation. and not be upset that she was showing me again. I have to say I went to take the test. the first part you do not get to use a calculator. and the second part you do. the person to give my calculator. was busy visiting with a friend on the phone and told me I am not allowed to have it. when i went to get to it to use, the man said you are done. there is no more test. I was mortified. you only get one try in 6 months. I called to get it fixed And got the it could take 1 to 2 weeks to get a answer. so a couple hours go by. with great anticipation I thought I have to know my score. I go online and I so happy. I passed it without the calculator. and it was hard with the calculator. If she is that good to help me pass without a calculator. Than you would be at best interest to use this tutor.

I appreciated how she clarified for me all of the concepts. I also appreciated how she worked out the problems so that I can take the notes home to review for the exam. I am going to use her services very soon!!
