Private Math Tutor NYC
Top Rated Private SAT Tutor
I have been finding pleasure in solving mathematical problems since early age. While in high school in Georgia, I participated in various math olympiads, as well as brought a gold medal from International Mathematics Project Competition in 2005. Subsequently I got my bachelor’s degree in Mathematics/Economics at American University in Bulgaria. During my years in college I was a chess club president and representative of the math department to the student government. Soon after I started my Master’s in Math at Courant Institute of New York University. Those were fun years, I opened myself to wonders of applied mathematics, as well as met some brilliant scientists. I was also working as Teaching Assistant through the course of my program. In 2013 my daughter was born and by the time I finished my Master’s, I decided instead of proceeding with the PhD as planned, to get acquainted with Early Childhood education, which subsequently directed me to look into homeschooling and individual training programs. I have looked into various approaches including, but not limited to Montessori, Waldorf, unschooling, etc. As I already had a teaching experience from Master’s program, I started working as a private tutor. I have worked with students from all over, including Hunter College High School; The High School for Math, Science and Engineering (HSMSE) at City College, NEST+M and NYU. I also have been preparing students for American Math Competition (AMC). I love my job and love working with kids, but I find especially big pleasure in working with challenging students, those who have no interest or willingness to learn math. It’s always gratifying finding ways to engage them in the learning process. My teaching goal is to bring out natural curiosity in students and ensure that they have it as a motivating tool through the course of their lifetime learning process. As Albert Einstein once said: “The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.” So let’s ensure that our kids never stop being curious!
