Wonderful tutor. You can give her any problem and she can probably solve it and work it out with you. Ive asked her questions I didnt expect an answer to and yet I was very plesantly surprised. She is also generally a very cool person. Highly recommended.Jul 20, 2017

She is a very smart person who knows the material and knows how to teach it in a way that will not only help you now but in the future as well. However she can sometimes get a little sidetracked. But all in all a great tutor.Jun 18, 2017
Background check completed
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My rate depends on the subject: I charge $25/hr for low-level subjects, $30 for high school and college level, and $35 for test prep. I offer discounts for lessons over 1 hour, and for multiple students. Pricing is negotiable.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am currently continuing my studies in Russian and Spanish to stay on top of my language skills. I also continue to practice programming in Java, C and other languages at work.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I found that I had a knack for helping my friends in school, and was told I'd make a good teacher. I made the leap to private tutoring in my junior year of high school when my mom's coworker reached out for help with his son.
