I have over 20 years of experience teaching and tutoring. I have Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Chemical Engineering and I have completed graduate coursework in Mathematics Education. I have taught Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Math Analysis, Calculus AB, Calculus BC, and chemistry. My experience includes large classes, small groups, individual lessons, as well as remedial, standard, honors, and Advanced Placement material.

My students all know that I am enthusiastic about the subject, and I have had great success in transferring this enthusiasm during my lessons, especially through the use of my unique sense of humor to create an engaging environment while maintaining a rigorous curriculum. Of the thousands of students I taught over the years, they have consistently said their favorite things about me as a teacher are how I help them not be scared of or confused by math, that I support them and make them feel comfortable learning, that they are able to retain information better, and that they feel prepared for the classes they take in the future. As a mother of two children who have gone through high school and college, I am aware of the stresses and challenges faced by students and parents, as well as the high pressure to perform well academically.

My teaching philosophy and experience with a variety of methods allows me to individualize instruction and modify my teaching strategies to reach each student. I have experience with a variety of educational software as well as electronic textbooks. As a tutor, I will work with you to strengthen your skills and build the confidence needed to succeed.

She is knowledgeable, patient and full of fun. My daughter is confused about some math concepts and she can explain to her clearly, step by step and just to the point.

Ryma, 13 lessons with Elena

Great Tutor!

Gave me confidence to take a harder math course next year & helped me finish Algebra 2 with a high grade. It seemed like she really cared about my education & was very patient. Would recommend!

Erin, 7 lessons with Elena

Knowledgeable, helpful tutor

Ekena has been tutoring me for IB Chemistry class. She knows the subject very well, as well as how it fits into overall high school curriculum. She is very encouraging, competent, engaging.

Lena, 5 lessons with Elena

Saved my child's grade!!

She's been a god send! She's helped to improve my son's grade immediately. The teacher has commented on my son's success on his midterm after our first lesson and we're hopeful with her help he'll pass Algebra 2. With her instruction he's finally able to understand the concepts well enough to progress with his class and relieve his frustrations!

Josephine, 7 lessons with Elena

Dedicated to Student's Learning

She is very personable and cares about making sure students understand the material. She has not problem explaining concepts more than once - she has a very cute, but heavy Russian accent. She made up a test review packet to help my son prepare for two tests.

Michele, 24 lessons with Elena

Patient, warm and understanding

She pretty much encouraged our rising freshman what to expect in transition to public HS, and summarized her plan in the next session in learning Algebra 1.

Great tutor! Pushes kids to excel

Elena is an amazing tutor who really gives kids the confidence to succeed in higher level maths. She is positive and encouraging but at the same time she is does not give false feedback. Kids really feel confident that if they can demonstrate the concept to Elena, then they really know it. This confidence helps them greatly to achieve success in school.

Sunit, 57 lessons with Elena

Patient, kind and very fast response

She was available within 30 minutes of our request. She worked with my daughter on Algrbra 2. They covered e base equations and logarithms. Elana made sure my daughter understood each equation before moving on to the next one. We will definitely use her in the future.
