My name is Alla and I have been teaching and tutoring in the area of mathematics for the past fourteen years. I am a present math teacher in KCHS and have tutored for three years for the students of the Chesapeake College and have done private tutoring for high school students over the past four years. I have tutored in subjects like remedial math, College Algebra, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Statistics, Algebra, and Algebra 2. I have a MS in Electrical Engineering where I have taken up to Calculus 3, receiving A's in all math classes.
I love to teach, and have a keen ability in finding what is hindering a student from moving forward. I teach by first seeing where the student is in their understanding, then try my best to fix the cracks in the foundation of the students understanding of mathematical concepts. I have found that most students have problems with higher math classes because they lack the understanding that is needed to enter the class. My hope is to help a student get to a place where they no longer need a math tutor to keep them from failing, but can have the confidence to move forward on their own, knowing they have the capability of getting an A.
