My name is Joe Ostraw and my wife's name is Natalya Ostraw. We have tutored for Baltimore County school systems for about 5 years.
I have a JD (law) degree from the University of Baltimore. Whereas, my wife has a Civil Engineering degree from Russia. She is fluent in English. I tutor English and history subjects, and she handles most math subjects. We are both retired and are selective on who we tutor.
The type students we enjoy are:
- For Joseph
1. Students having difficulty with English, either in talking, writing or understanding grammar
2. Students needing remedial help
3. Students from other counties needing English help
4. Students needing help with History or Social Studies
- For Natalya
1. Students having difficulty with High School and College Math
2. Russian-speaking people needing help in English
How we work:
We tutor at most Baltimore City or county libraries, but we can also do home visits. The first visit is for one hour and half which we charge $50 to set up a plan, and determine how to help you.
For one hour of service at the library we charge $35, and a home visit is $40!
