About Alyona


Bio

My name is Alyona, and in 2015 I received a Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota. My thesis was on high-intensity ultrasound and its effects on the human body. Specifically, our team formed a start-up that designed a new medical apparatus to monitor ultrasound energy entering the human body at high levels. While at the University of Minnesota I taught foundational engineering courses to a class of 80+ undergraduate students. Students appreciated my down to earth style of teaching, and our...

My name is Alyona, and in 2015 I received a Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota. My thesis was on high-intensity ultrasound and its effects on the human body. Specifically, our team formed a start-up that designed a new medical apparatus to monitor ultrasound energy entering the human body at high levels. While at the University of Minnesota I taught foundational engineering courses to a class of 80+ undergraduate students. Students appreciated my down to earth style of teaching, and our office hours were often full of college students waiting in the hallways.

During my career in MedTech, I had the privilege to work for companies such as Mayo Clinic, 3M, and Medtronic. All of my employers approached science with zest and vigor. And this passion for the wonders of math & physics is what I want to pass on to my students.

Thank you for reading my story.

I am looking forward to meeting you soon.

I am intimately familiar with AutoCAD, specifically Fusion 360. We used it in graduate school to build custom parts. Parts were later made by ProtoLabs, a CNC machining service provider.

Great Teacher

I would rate Alyona 5 stars. She was friendly upbeat and very motivating. Very easy to follow and comprehend her teaching methods. I will continue to utilize her services.

Extremely Helpful and Patient

Alyona helped my daughter in physics. She was patient and reinforced the learning. Which resulted in a 100% on the next test. She cared about the previous tests and what was wrong. Worked on current concepts my daughter is learning. My daughter was engaged and listened. I would definitely recommend her.

Physics Session

Alyona helped me with my physics problems. She is always patient, kind and knowledgeable. She never gets frustrated if it takes time to do a problem and makes sure she gets the right answer.

Amazing tutor!!!

I am studying Physics 2 as a sophomore year university student pursuing an electrical engineering degree. I had asked Alyona to help me prepare for my final as I have a lot of material to go over. I wish I would have found her sooner in the semester!! While the paid student tutors at my university often struggle to help me, Alyona helped me cover in 1hr what they would have in multiple. She was so thorough and concise at the same time. You can tell she has a passion to teach and is gifted at it. She is also patient and very personable. While it’s easy to get frustrated when you can’t figure something out, Alyona really makes learning less stressful and *nerd alert LOL* quite frankly fun!!! Would highly recommend her to anyone studying STEM.

Best tutor my daughter has had

My daughter, a senior in high school, has used a variety of tutors over the years for different subjects. She asked me to write this review and to mention that Alyona (whom she used for Physics tutoring) is the best tutor she has had. She is very helpful and empathetic and she enjoys meeting with her. As a parent I appreciate that Alyona is very easy to communicate with and very flexible. She is willing and able to meet even with very little notice. Thank you, Alyona!
