Fun fact: I can recite every line of the movie The Princess Bride. Hi, my name is Sylvia, and I love working with students! The most rewarding part of tutoring for me is when a new concept “clicks” with a student - their excitement is contagious, and it’s a privilege to be able to help them reach that point! On a more personal level, I am a friendly, outdoorsy, athletic, and talkative type of person! I partner with students on a one-on-one basis in STEM subjects through SoFlo Tutors, my tutoring agency. I studied Economics at the University of St. Andrews and have been tutoring for 2 years. At SoFlo, we work to raise grades, strengthen under

I have college experience in which I completed several semesters in working towards degrees in engineering and science. During that time, I accumulated a lot of experience in tutoring my colleagues in those subjects I excelled in and which they were struggling with. With that experience, I learned many lessons in how to teach others, and to understand them so as to best support them in whatever subject they may be struggling in.

My name is Owen Boxx, I am in my final year at the University of Nevada Reno for Computer Science and I have tutored math for the last 4 years for a tutoring company where I became one of the few lead instructors. During my time at that job, I was the one everyone would come to with questions and I feel very confident in my ability to work through any given problem. I love working with students and seeing growth that I have had the pleasure of contributing to. I love one on one tutoring sessions but also have experience working in big groups and handling multiple people at the same time. While I know homework can be important for a grade, I

Raised in a family of teachers I have developed at an early age my own ways of making learning more enjoyable for ages K-12. I completed my math credits sophomore year of high school and graduated with excellent grades in 6 AP and 4 Honors classes. Although I am helpful in science, my skills lie more in math and English. I have tutored on and off for almost half of my life and I always find myself coming back to it. With the size of classes constantly expanding and the number of teachers swiftly declining, it's my job to create an opportunity for you to have some one on one guidance that focuses on your strengths and struggles....

Dr. Sarantsev is a very professional and caring instructor. He is patient, and accommodating to students of all levels. He explained things to me in several ways until I could thoroughly understand a given concept. He was also very knowledgeable in the subject area (statistics in this case) and was able to easily suggest numerous problems to practice on my own, in addition to providing several other reading sources for course content. I would definitely recommend him to friends and plan on using his services again!
