If you want A in math, I am the right person for you

Methodology

I have no unique approach to all students. My first session consists of 'getting know of each other' and 'determining the right approach'. Each student is different and I has different needs, so I always try to find the best 'teaching style' for each of them.

Background

I am a certified Substitute Teacher and I have been math tutor for 18 years. I have Bachelor degree in civil engineering and Masters degree in Industrial engineering. Tutoring and teaching is my passion, this is my dream job and I give 100% while doing it.

Perfect! We hired Milena to help our son, an engineering major, work on his Calculus skills over the summer. We found her to be serious, yet friendly, and very knowledgeable. As my son said, she really 'knows her stuff!' We would definitely recommend her!

Professor Milena has been my tutor for a year, teaching me descriptive geometry, different areas of math and physics. She is the most helpful teacher that taught us, her students, how to find the most effective and easiest ways of solving any kind of problem or task. One of her many virtues is explaining everything with the utmost clarity, in an approachable and fun way. During our lessons, she was very communicative and easy going, which eased our studying and made her earn our trust. I would highly recommend to everyone to take up her classes!

Milan
