"I have worked with students of varying abilities, including those with learning difficulties and gifted students. I grew up in the Chicago area, but I was born in Ukraine, so I speak Russian fluenty. I also speak Spanish--I learned it in school and still use it to this day with my husband's family.

"I believe that studying a foreign language can be fun, and does not mean that you have to take those boring grammar and vocabulary classes over and over again. Passion is very important to this process. I like to teach in a way which keeps the students interested and engaged, and help them to be highly self motivated. I have helped many beginner students pass their HSK tests (The standardized test for Chinese language)."

"I am currently applying to medical schools in the Chicago area. I began tutoring while home on breaks from college by helping my younger sisters with their high school courses and by helping them prepare for the ACT and SAT tests. I didn't become a formal tutor until my senior year of college when my physics professor from the previous year asked me to take up a position as a teaching assistant because of my performance in the class and social nature. I thoroughly enjoyed my teaching experiences and I am looking forward to helping new students as a Varsity tutor.." ...

"If I can get a student genuinely interested in the subject they are studying, then I am sure the better grades and test scores will follow. I am an unashamed Biology nerd, and I love all of Science in general. I have learned so much about the world and how amazing life is through these subjects and I want to pass that nerdiness onto others. I am also a big music nerd, and I love all styles of music- Pop/rock, classical, and opera included."

"Many test-takers get bogged down in the details and try to memorize every little factoid, making complex subjects unmanageable. I like to break down each subject and consider how each subtopic can be tested. I also prefer focusing on learning concepts, rather than memorizing facts. This has led to great outcomes for myself and many of the students I have tutored in the past.."
