Dear Parents and Students,

May I be a personal tutor for you or your child? I have been successfully tutoring for over 12 years. I have great references, and I am one of the top tutors because I am so easy to work with. I teach in person, or via TakeLessons classroom, telephone, Skype, FaceTime, Google Hangouts, Join.me, Appear.in, Screenhero (remote desktop, screen sharing) interactive whiteboards, as well as email attachments (PDF, Word, Excel, etc.) I graduated with honors, Summa Cum Laude from Case Western Reserve University, where I made the Dean's List. I also earned a Provost Academic Scholarship for my excellent test scores, including 34 in ACT mathematics and 780 in SAT mathematics.

In addition to teaching for Cleveland schools, I currently teach 20 private sessions each week, 1st through 12th grade, as well as college stud
ents and business professionals. I have also served on the faculty at Cuyahoga Community College.

I am patient, friendly and many students tell me that I explain concepts more effectively than their teachers. I am available weekdays or weekends, days or nights, throughout the entire year. I would be happy to answer any questions you might have regarding my experience and teaching methods. While it should go without saying, I have a clean background that has been verified by the FBI and BCII. Let me know if you would like to set up an introductory lesson to design a customized strategy. There is no obligation to continue unless a customer is 100% satisfied.

I am one of the Top Five Tutors for:
1. most diverse subject matter
2. widest student age range
3. farthest geographical regions
4. largest client base
5. most hours taught monthly

Please note: I have set up my billing in thirty minute increments. Thus, I am able to offer lessons of varying lengths. However, I would appreciate longer sessions. I thank you for your time and consideration and look forward to being at your service!

I highly recommend Matt for his math tutoring services. I increased my OAR (Officer Aptitude Rating) score 10 points after six weeks of tutoring with Matt, making my new score very competitive. Scheduling long-distance tutoring sessions once a week was easy and the length was perfect (1.5 hours). He showed me how to visualize word problems, which is what I needed. He's personable and easy-going and I found his familiarity with military aptitude exams extremely valuable.

This was the most un-professional experience I have ever* had with anyone, I cannot believe how rude he was, & I remained nice the entire time, but beware he is out to only steal your money. Rather than showing me what I wanted to know, he wasted my time by changing my folders, folder settings, where I download to, all things to specify himself working on the computer and even re-named my files to his name. My ex is a Teacher & a long tern tutor. He recommended that I get a full lesson, maybe a few weeks, but at this time I simply wanted to know the v-lookuo function only, as I had the date ready to go, with a deadline. He refused to show it to me, as he said I had to learn the basics which I already know. He did not even open up Excel. If I had not been so specific with him, & even offered to hire him for a long term tutor session, I might be able to see him trying to show me the basics, but we never even got that far. He told me to buy a 3 pack, then when I went to do so he took the opton away, and said that I had to buy, 3 but separately. I understand from talking to others why he did this. He apparently had something come up, & had to go and disconnected our call, without saying anything aside from, "buy more at 9 am tomorrow". I think he thought he was with a 7 year old & must milk them all out every penn fast. I would personally have wanted the long term money instead of a quick 50$ something dollars. It was exactly as if he had no time for me but instead of saying he had personal engagements he took my money & left me hanging when I could ahve literally been fired from my job for not getting this report in, in time. I stayed up until dawn the next day to compete it by myself, with a local Craigslist person, who was so kind & professional & showed me what I needed on an immediate basis. No playing around the whole time. I spent more on the new tutor as he was so very smart & actually knew what he doing. I never, leave reviews. i may have left 1, or 2 at a locl restaurant that I adored, but this was something I felt I eeded to do, so YOU

About Jane (Zhenya)
I was born in Saint Petersburg, Russia and have always had an immense love for languages and cultures of the world. I found that diving into a new language and culture is one of the most incredible, joyful, compassionate and meaningful paths to discovering the world. All the while, rediscovering one’s own unique interests and curiosities. It’s always surprising and rewarding in ways we can’t foresee.

As a longtime, professional independent instructor, I never imagined where my languages and creative work would lead me and the wonderful folks I encountered along the way.

It’s been a journey of incredible variety.

I had the amazing opportunity to create and teach the first Russian, French and Italian classes to children in public elementary schools all around Oxnard. I was invited to teach French and Italian classes i
n the Ventura College Community Education, Russian immersion program for the U.S. Government and English to a team of international entrepreneurs and their families.

This work and my students inspired a joyful dedication to creating live video classes. I discovered that it’s a special, interactive and awesome platform into the world and I love seeing it grow.

I look forward to working with you and supporting you on your language journey.

Till then,

Zhenya

Few years ago, when I was attending LACC and taking grammar classes I thought that my knowledge of Verb Tenses was good enough . I used to write huge essays included a lot of pages. Moreover, I was getting straight As for all the essays that inspired me. Maybe my grammar was really correct, but I’m not sure that I expressed meaning correctly because I didn’t feel and recognize many nuances of Verb Tenses. Since , I started to take your classes I have understood how Verb Tenses are diverse , how flexible meaning they have in order to show our emotions.
Some people say it”s not necessary to use all V.T. Simple Past , Present and Future it”s enough for communication with each other, but I’m not agree with them. Using all V.T. we have made English more rich , natural and beautiful for that reason our life become jucier.
I never had been so fascinated by studying English grammar before I met you 
I have appreciated your teaching full love . You’re always ready to share your skills with the people who want to improve their knowledge. I’m happy that I found you!
THANK YOU MY DEAR Zhenya !!!!!!!! 
