Significant tutoring and teaching experience. Examples:
- private tutor for math, physics, and French.
- English teaching assistant in high school
- Pre-calculus teaching assistant in University of Washington Robinson Center Summer Stretch program.
I am good at making students feel comfortable. In math/science topics, I help students along the way to finding the solution on their own, rather than explaining the solution right away. In English/writing classes, I provide gentle yet particular critique. I have also been successful in the world of standardized testing (2350 SAT, 34 ACT), and easily help others with testing strategies.
I am also bilingual (Russian and English), and am nearing fluency in French. I believe I would be a great resource for Russian- or French-speaking ESL students.
