...My professional experience includes: teaching Mathematics, Russian and ESL for about 20 years in Russia and since 2011 in the USA. In 2007 I also started teaching online in Skype and later in my own virtual classroom. Being native of Russia and speaking fluent English allows me to deliver lessons for English and Russian speakers in their first language.

...I also have experience working in a retail sewing shop called Stretch and Sew, dealing with clothing patterns and knit type fabrics). I have made many outfits, from bathing suits to lace type panties. I consider myself an advanced sewer. I would consider it an honor to teach anyone interested in learning this creative skill.
...I like to determine a student's best learning methods for math: does the student learn best by hearing the material and/or reading? Once we have the best way to understand the subject, we will use those methods to help with study skills and homework and test preparation. I love Algebra.
