astrakhan state university, Russia (Master's)
I am a Certified Math Teacher with over 15 years of teaching experience and a former teacher at the award-winning DeBakey High School for Health Professions. I have Master's Degree in Education and Math. Over the years of being a classroom teacher, I have had the privilege of helping hundreds of students achieve success in math and overcome test anxiety.
For the last six years, I taught at the highest performing high school for math and science in Houston. I have extensive experience teaching Algebra I and II, Geometry (my personal favorite), Precalculus and SAT prep. I consider high school math and test prep (SAT, ISEE, ASVAB, ACT, Acuplacer, Compas) my specialty.
And now as a tutor, I am very excited to bring my knowledge and expertise to help you or your child master math. Over the years of working with students with very diverse backgrounds I've developed solid tools that can now help bring student’s learning to the next level. These are not only techniques to help with understanding math, but also simple but practical tools to overcome testing anxiety, raising self confidence, ending procrastination and truly removing all blocks on the way to success in math.
My mission as a math tutor is to help my students: build confidence in math and themselves, develop critical thinking, and get the highest scores on math tests so they can first catch up or keep up and ultimately stay ahead! I am passionate to share my own secret formula for lasting success in math (that I’ve successfully used to help hundreds of students) not only to get a deeper understanding of the subject and the highest test scores, but also help my students get in and graduate from the college of their dreams!

We knew are our daughter would need help with Geometry in 10th grade, she has always struggled with math. We made arrangements for weekly tutoring at the beginning of school. With Mrs. Olga's tutoring, my daughter has gone from making some of the lowest grades in class to making the highest grades. She made 90 on her report card and has made A's on her last two tests. Mrs. Olga is so patient and very good at knowing when my daughter is frustrated or not grasping a concept. One additional hour per week of high quality instruction is making the difference. We are aiming for top 10% and Mrs. Olga is helping us get there. I have recommended her to two other parents. Thanks, Olga!!!
When I first met Olga I had a 72 in my precal class which was satisfactory at any rate. After I met with Olga a few months in the final semester my grade made it all the way to an 86. But Olga didn't just help me with Precal, she helped me with SAT prep at the same time. On top of all of that she conquered the real problem. The problem was text anxiety. How did we fix this problem? EFT. Olga is a licensed EFT practitioner. Before the EFT I would panic in the middle of my tests completely blanking until eventually I ran out of time for my test. But with Olga's help everything turned out great, I wish I had contacted her sooner.
Thank you Ms. Olga for all your help. Because of your precise help and patience my grades went from 70's or below to 90's or above. I even made it to the "A Club" in my pre-ap geometry class. Sooo excited! Thank you so much again, you are the best!
I needed to take this very important placement test, and If I didn't pass it I was going to get kicked out of college!!! Olga helped me with all my algebra material, she was very patient with me and knew how to get me motivated to do pass the test. She was also great in helping me with my test anxiety witch was really important for me. She gave me the tools to finally be successful and pass my test.
I am so happy I got to work with Olga. She is extremely knowledgeable, patient and helpful. One thing that helped me a lot is that not only she taught me Math in an easy, understandable manner, but she also helped me develop a mindset for success. She is also really great when it comes to helping with tests anxiety, I've learned some super easy tricks from her that help me stay calm and focused during my test. I highly recommend her to anyone who need help in Math and wants to get the highest scores on Math tests.
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.

Russian is my native language. I spoke it exclusively until the age of 15, since I was born in Russia. So I graduated both College and High School there (speaking only Russian). I also speak Russian at home with my daughters all the time. I love teaching Russian and am very excited to help people with it.
