About this tutor

Hi!  My name is Tova.  I have a degree in biomedical engineering and am currently pursuing another joint degree in physics and computer science.  But I love teaching, and have been working in private tutoring for over a decade.  I've worked both with institutions as well as privately.  

 I pride myself on teaching with a great deal of patience and empathy, and I understand that different people learn in different ways.  My goal is to understand each student's individual learning style: the way they learn and think, their strengths, and their weaknesses.  Then together, we can craft an effective learning plan.

I hope that together we can make this a fun experience for you, as well as constructive!

I love helping people embrace and understand things they once found frustrating.  I believe that any subject - with enough work, and the right guidance - can become enjoyable.  Seeing my students develop an understanding for material that once confused them is a truly rewarding experience.

    Tova's an incredible GRE tutor. The lessons were clear, her explanations are really intuitive, and she always understood what was confusing me. And my score skyrocketed. Worth every penny.

    Fantastic tutor. Tova helped me with my calculus homework throughout the semester, and she made the material so much clearer and more understandable. Well recommended for anyone doing college math.

    Tova is currently helping my 12 year old son get a grasp on his math. She's a fantastic tutor, and seems to have a real gift for teaching. Clearly, she also really loves kids. We're very happy with her.

    Tova has been helping me with Java. Really nice person, extremely intelligent, and knows how to teach in a way which makes the material clear and intuitive. I have a great time in my lessons with her, and I have a much better grasp on the course work. Glad I found her, highly recommended.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We usually begin by figuring out what the student's goals and needs are, and what are his/her main weakness.  By doing one or two sessions with a student, I can figure out what's most difficult.  From there, we can work out a plan on how to move forward.
