The Best Tutor I've Ever Worked With Olya has been helping me with my grad school essays and applications. She was diligent and made sure I answered every question perfectly and to a T! She was available any time through text when I needed her for had last minute questions or concerns. She was also just extremely knowledgeable, kind, and patient throughout the long, stressful, process of writing application essays. Olya is truly the best tutor I’ve ever worked with! I am happy to say I was admitted into into all my schools with scholarship aid, including Columbia and U Penn. At U Penn my interviewer commented on my writing and said it was beautiful and admitted me on the spot. I got a personal letter from Columbia, commenting specifically on my essay as a major factor in my admission Eileen, 32 lessons with OlyaJul 7, 2020

Best and Most Amazing Tutor! Ms. Olya T is the best tutor we have ever met. In three months, she helped our daughter improve her PSAT Verbal score by 220 points, which placed her in the 99th percentile. Wow! Olya knows how to work with adolescents; our daughter enjoyed her lessons and improved not only her language skills but her self-confidence as a result. Our daughter is now continuing to work with Olya on the SAT. My husband and I feel very fortunate to have found her. Tutoring with Olya has been one of the best investments we could have made in our daughter’s future. Thank you, Olya. Di WilliamsDec 31, 2020

I am a graduating senior at Barnard College, Columbia University, and Olya helped me structure and edit my senior thesis. When I first came to her, I had an overload of writing and information, and Olya promptly set me on track in our first sessions. She helped me with my writing skills and emphasized cohesive structure and clear, unambiguous writing. I highly recommend Olya and am grateful for her incredible help, patience, and kindness in the writing process. Olya hits the ground running, arrives on time, makes space in her schedule for her students, and guides them to a finished product. Exceptional tutor.Nov 22, 2019

Reading and Writing Tutoring
Olya has been an amazing writing tutor. She has helped me learn to write clearly, powerfully, and concisely. She has definitely improved my writing, my grammar skills, and my overall confidence as a student. She always makes me feel comfortable and I am never afraid to ask questions. Olya has been a great mentor to me during the college essay process. I leave every meeting with a smile and a sense of accomplishment. She is dedicated to her students and is very attentive to details. Olya is a warm person who cares about me as a student and as a person.”Nov 5, 2017
