...My approach involves testing the waters, initially, and figuring out what methods work for an individual student. Until recently, I was a math teacher in the NYC public school system. I am confident that any student would make significant progress studying with me, and my undergraduate work in psychology also makes me sensitive to individual issues that might arise, such as test anxiety.

...I speak English and Russian fluently, and have basic/intermediate Spanish. I have been tutoring math and physics for six years, and would be happy to provide references for past or current students on demand. I take an interactive approach to tutoring, and encourage students to give lots of feedback, dictate the pace, and maintain a constant dialogue with me.

...High school math is more challenging but can be mastered once students feel comfortable and confident with all they have accomplished in middle school. My job is to be knowledgeable and encouraging to all my students. I am qualified to tutor elementary and middle school math as well as Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry and Trigonometry.

...It is all in how it is presented and I've been doing this for a long time. I know exactly what a student is thinking when approaching a problem so it is easy for them to readjust their thinking about how to approach it. There are people who understand all types of math right away and there are some who can't see it at all.
