I have been utoring students in English at Mountain View High School, teaching ESL to numerous age groups and skill levels, private tutoring for improving writing skills, A's in English1A/1B, Technical writing (for engineering), debate/public speaking, and philosophy essays.
I have straight A's in all of the college English and writing courses I have taken: English1A/1B, Technical writing (for engineering), debate/public speaking, and philosophy (which was mostly writing). I can speak Russian because my family is from Russia (I am the first generation here), so I can help tutor native Russian speakers in English. My English is a lot better than my Russian. I can also help native speakers of other backgrounds.
I am a 4th year university chemistry student. I currently do research in organic chemistry concerning the synthesis of free radicals. I have received A's and B's in all of my organic chemistry courses I have taken. These courses include labs.
