I have more than 10 years of tutoring and teaching experience in Hawaii. Cultural and demographic diversity of my clients helped me develop teaching styles suitable to very diverse needs of my students. I tutor both, children and adults. My main focus is in Test Preparation, Mathematics, and Statistics. However, I also worked with students studying Russian, Piano, also beginning Economics and Accounting.

Alina is definitely the cream of the crop!
Alina is SO worth her weight in Gold for those parents that need someone to take the ball and run with it! She is not someone who just sits with your child for an hour and helps him with whatever the student says he needs help with. She digs deeper! She makes sure the student is looking at the Big Picture along with the small details of the next homework assignment due. She helps them longer if they need the time to ‘get it' and cuts the session short if they can do it independently. She emails parents to let them know where their kiddo is at, where he needs to go, and what he needs to get there. She started with my son in Nov., at which point he was struggling in Statistics. In fact, at that time, his Statistics teacher had already mentioned that he ‘might not want to do a 2nd semester of Statistics.' By January, with Alina’s dedicated support, he completed the class with a ‘B' and with the teacher pulling him aside and commenting, “I’m glad you decided to stay and take the 2nd semester in this class.” Dedication, hard worker, math whiz, and integrity! Definitely the cream of the crop!

Knowledgeable and very patient
Alina goes above and beyond to help you understand the material and is able to simplify the material in a way that makes it easy to understand. Her schedule is flexible and she has been able to accommodate my scheduling issues.

Excellent Russian tutor
My daughter has come so far under Alina; she has learned to speak, writer, and read more fluently and with better results than her previous tutor. Alina has a system, and it works! Her structure is refreshing and her mastery of the subject is stellar.

Russian tutoring
Alina is a good tutor. She communicates well and makes the most of each session. My son is learning Russian from Alina and although he’s only taken two lessons, he’s learned a lot.

Knowledgeable and considerate of time spent
Alina worked on SAT facts and reviewed information that my daughter was having trouble with. She was timely, patient and extremely knowledgeable on the subject matter. We are looking forward to working with her on an ongoing basis for our other children. Great job, Alina!!

Very knowledgeable, great personality, fantastic tutor
Alina taught my high school son pre-calculus, she was very patient, however was very accurate with the tutoring. Alina is amazingly good at Math and has a good eye to quickly grasp strengths and needs of a student and tailoring her lessons for maximum benefit. She got the topics ahead of time and was prepared for the lessons. Will definitely seek her help for anything academic - She is great.

Great teacher!
Alina has helped my daughter from having D’s to A and B only after about 2 months of teaching her. My daughter likes her so much, hoping to keep Alina as a math teacher until college.

Great SAT Math tutor
Alina was able to quickly pinpoint my weak areas and assign the appropriate homework to improve in those areas. After my first session I’m feeling very positive about my future sessions with Alina.

Was very helpful with my school work
Alina helped me with my statistics problems for my MBA class. She was kind and patient. She explained everything so lucidly. She was a life saver in short. I will use her again in the future.
