About Darya

I have been a student for many years and I continue learning new things every day. I am very familiar with the experience of being a student, whether it's at an Elementary level, Middle school level, High School, or college. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Education from George Mason University. GMU taught me to be resourceful, to cater my teaching to different learning styles, and to connect curriculum to the real world.

I believe that anyone can make academic progress with proper support from the tutor/teacher/mentor as well as hard work on the student's part. I also believe that learning should be rigorous but fun. I usually try to incorporate various methods of teaching and concrete materials to keep lessons fresh and interesting.

I have taught an advanced S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math)-based Kindergarten program at a private academy and have been tutoring students of different ages since February of 2015. Currently I am taking a break from full-time teaching while tutoring students on a part-time basis, attending Graduate school and teaching adult ESL class as a volunteer with Loudoun Literacy Council.

I hope that I can help you succeed in your studies as well as show you that learning can be fun! :)
Thank you for reading my profile and for your consideration!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Algebra 1

I've taught Algebra 1 to middle school and High Schools students through Wyzant for 2 years.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutored Elementary subjects with WyzAnt for over a year now (100+ hours with students). I also have a Bachelor's degree in Education from GMU and am currently working on my Master's.

Elementary Math

I have been tutoring Elementary Math K-6 for over two years now with Wyzant (100+ hours with students). I have a Bachelor's degree in Education from GMU and am currently finishing up my Master's while substitute teaching and tutoring on the side.

Phonics

I am currently teaching a S.T.E.M. based Kindergarten class at a private academy. I teach Phonics every day, Monday through Friday, to help my students with their reading and writing skills. I teach phonics in progressive steps, where the student masters one skill at a time before he moves on to the next and then we combine all the previously learned skills. To make phonics fun/interactive, I use technology (phonics games on the computer) as well as music and hands-on phonics activities with flash cards, dry erase board, and other things like that.

Spanish

I am a GMU graduate with a Bachelor's degree in Education, currently working on Master's. I've been studying Spanish ever since my freshman year in High School. I continued taking Spanish courses in college (out of interest) and made it all the way up to "Gateway to Advanced Spanish" course, which is a level between Intermediate II and Advanced. In this class we spoke only in Spanish and even had debates with each other in Spanish. Overall, Spanish has always been my favorite and best subject in High School and in college. I've used Spanish in conversations with friends, coworkers, and I've also traveled to Mexico and Dominican Republic where I had to communicate with everyone completely in Spanish.

Writing

I have taken various English classes throughout my school/college careers which taught me all about writing, have given me lots of practice with essay and research paper writing, and allowed me to perfect my skills.

Knowledgeable and friendly tutor

Today was Darya's first lesson with my kid. And she discussed all her future strategies in depth and my kid looks satisfied with her. I asked my kid and she explained in detail, means she did understand what Darya taught her. We are hoping to have good results with us.
