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
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
A professional writer and editor I worked with Olya on polishing my medical school application. She was a patient and meticulous editor who always knew how to clarify my sentences. She was attentive, easy to talk to, and an absolute joy to work with.Nov 27, 2019
Great English Language Tutor! Olya consistently corrects my pronunciation and pauses to explain sentence structure, vocabulary, idioms, and history.
