I am a PhD in Calculus with experience of teaching students at university level. I specialise in teaching Elementary, Advanced and Applied Maths. I am an enthusiastic and dedicated teacher who endeavours to instil a passion for these subjects in my students. I believe in taking a patient and empathetic approach with students and will always strive to establish a method of teaching that suits each student’s needs.
I graduated from University of Lviv, Ukraine in 1982 with a Masters in Applied Mathematics and am currently an associated professor at University of my city. I have worked as a teacher and a private tutor for more than 30 years.
Having undertaken the additional education at London’s Edgware Academy of Languages and Computer Science, I have got a First Certificate in English. During my time at the Academy I have a keen interest in education policy.
Mathematics and English are something I am very passionate about, and passing on this passion is very important to me. I like to stress solid understanding of the fundamentals which makes it much easier to build knowledge for the future.
As of teaching strategy, I have a lot of patience and I try to explain in several different manners, with examples, until I find the best and most understandable way for the students I’m teaching. I like seeing happy faces so I try my best to make the studying enjoyable.
