About

I offer college essay support, writing support, and digital (P)SAT tutoring for high-achieving students. I also offer GRE/LSAT/GMAT tutoring and application essay help for grad students. As part of my emphasis on college prep, I also offer ShSAT/SSAT/ISEE/TOEFL tutoring.

I have a very high level of writing skill, and I can offer a very high level of writing support for the college essay and additional college essay prompts. My students have been accepted into top colleges, including Amherst, Brown, Barnard, Boston College, Cornell, Columbia, Duke, Georgetown, NYU, MIT, Oxford, Princeton, Rice, Stanford, St. Andrew's (Scotland), Tufts, UChicago, UC-Berkeley, UCLA, UNC, U-PENN, USC, etc.)

I taught writing at UNC; I work as an essayist and writer; I have worked as an editor and commentary writer for national newspapers.

I love the English language, and I can teach you just about anything about writing or ELA that you would want to know.

I enjoy helping my students excel and seeing them succeed in reaching their goals. My most recent student just told me that her UPenn interviewer commented on her essay and recommended her for admission on the spot. Three of my students just scored in the 99 percentile on the PSAT, making them eligible for the National Merit Scholarship.

    A Pleasure to Work With!
    Olya is a great tutor! She helped my daughter with her essay in a very short time. She worked not only during the time she spent with my daughter but also edited and offered suggestions in between sessions. I would definitely recommend Olya because she is patient, kind and encouraging and knows how to get the details out of anyone. I am happy to say that my daughter got into her dream school, which is Villanova! Thank you, Olya!!!

    We had a wonderful experience working with Olya as our sons tutor! We are very pleased with our sons improvement in his writing skills and with his excellent SSAT score. We also noticed his increased confidence. Olya has been very professional and very patient. Olya even spent extra time to get familiar with our sons curriculum and reading list, so that she could best help our son with his assignments, and she always personalized each lesson to focus on our sons areas of need. She showed our son how to focus on details in both his reading and writing. She taught him how to strive for excellence. Olya is extremely competent and has a lot of enthusiasm. We will definitely continue working with her. Jennifer and Ray S.

    Amazing tutor who relates well to kids! Here is my 5th grade son’s comment: “Ms. Olya taught me about spelling, writing, reading, and vocabulary. I now I have a bigger vocabulary and I know all the spelling rules. We also go over a chapter of a book a week. I am now in the top reading, writing and spelling groups in my school.” As his mom, I am so pleased to see his increased confidence and his enthusiasm. Thank you, Ms. Olya.

    Best and Most amazing Tutor
    Ms. Olya T is the best tutor we have ever met. In three months, she helped our daughter improve her PSAT Verbal score by 220 points, which placed her in the 99th percentile. Wow! Olya knows how to work with adolescents; our daughter enjoyed her lessons and improved not only her language skills but her self-confidence as a result. Our daughter is now continuing to work with Olya on the SAT. My husband and I feel very fortunate to have found her. Tutoring with Olya has been one of the best investments we could have made in our daughter’s future. Thank you, Olya.

    The Best Tutor Ive Ever Worked With!
    Olya has been helping me with my grad school essays and applications. She was diligent and made sure I answered every question perfectly and to a T! She was available any time through text when I needed her for had last minute questions or concerns. She was also just extremely knowledgeable, kind, and patient throughout the long, stressful, process of writing application essays. Olya is truly the best tutor I’ve ever worked with! I am happy to say I was admitted into into all my schools with scholarship aid, including Columbia and U Penn. At U Penn my interviewer commented on my writing and said it was beautiful and admitted me on the spot. I got a personal letter from Columbia, commenting specifically on my essay as a major factor in my admission

    Frequently asked questions

    I evaluate the student's current level and build on his/her strengths; we then develop a study plan so the student will succeed in his/her goals. I am always gentle and encouraging.

    I can give your child a strong foundation in grammar, vocabulary, reading, and writing --no matter what the grade level. Such a foundation will serve your child well in future learning and test-taking. 

    I am a writer of literary essays and commentary. I have very polished writing and editing skills. 

    I taught writing and literature at UNC, and I have been invited to teach advanced writing at other schools.

    I have a Master's in Comparative Literature from Indiana University and a Bachelor's from Brooklyn College. I also have post-graduate work in International Affairs at Columbia and I qualified for the Foreign Service. 

    I offer a standard rate for a few lessons, and I offer a discount for a group of lessons.

    I would advise looking for a tutor who has a high level of experience and writing skill, is very knowledgeable about ELA, has a track record of results, and is fun to work with.
