EducationGraduated from NYU with a Chemistry and Psychology double major in 2010.
Honors Cum Laude with 3.7 GPA!
ExperienceBackground: I am NYU honors graduate in Chemistry and Psychology. Two biggest passions that I have are science and teaching. I truly love tutoring! It is the most rewarding feeling in the world to see someone finally understand a hard concept. I have been working as a full time tutor for over 5 years with amazing results. I am also a founder of Transformation Tutoring LLC. Please visit us:
***Now offering group and private MCAT lessons for the new MCAT****
In the last couple of years I successfully tutored students from high school until college in the following subjects: Organic Chemistry, General Chemistry, high school Chemistry, and MCAT. I feel that the success of my students is my success, and that is why I care so much and try to teach in the most fun, exciting, patient and encouraging way!
My Teaching: I believe that the key to doing well on any kind of exam is a lot of practice, grouped with hard work and motivation. That is why I try to encourage my students by making subjects fun and exciting while emphasizing the values of hard work and patience. I know for a fact that mistakes are an essential part of our learning and do not discourage my students when they make mistakes. My approach relies on a lot of encouragement, understanding and patience.
My teaching method is tailored to each student and depends on his unique strengths and weaknesses, and in what way he learns the best.
HobbiesI love anything that is creative. In spare time I play tennis, read funny Russian books and learn how to make websites!

So, like many of you students/parents, I needed help. Needless to say organic chemistry is a rigorous, demanding, and difficult subject-especially in the summer. I am pre-PA (physician assistant), and needed at least a 'C' to apply to medical/graduate schools which offer programs. The stress was intense, until I began working with Mayya. She broke down organic chemistry principals in ways I couldn't understand in the class room. I was well prepared for exams, and Mayya was always 10-15 min early! I am pleased to inform you all that I ended higher than a C! And because of Mayya I am ready to begin the next chapter of my life. I highly recommend Mayya for all of those who are planning on or taking general/organic chemistry.
Mayya was my tutor for general chemistry, and she did a phenomenal job. I can't recommend her highly enough. I literally improved 30 points from midterm to final... IN ONE MONTH of working with her. She quickly gave me the tools I needed to study correctly: she showed me how to study the right things the right way. She always had a gameplan for our tutoring sessions and I really appreciated that structure and focus. In fact, it was contagious! She is also incredibly sweet and always managed to reduce my stress level. She's the best!
Outstanding. Truly a remarkable tutor, as well as individual. I have experienced a wide variety of mentors ranging in different subjects, although Mayya is by far the most coherent, proficient, and pleasant educators I have had the privilege of working with. Specifically, I used her services for Chemistry. However, from our sessions, it is evident that she possess a thorough understanding of other academic subjects. She makes seemingly complex topics easy to comprehend and enjoyable at the same time. Her style of teaching enlisted me with a sense of reassurance, in that she consistently provides clear explanations, as well as useful techniques when solving elaborate problems. In short, her overall intellect is phenomenal. With a great personality, a timely appearance at each scheduled lesson, and an excellent approach towards teaching, this tutor is an absolute must. One of the finest for sure.
Mayya tutored me in Organic Chemistry. She utilized the time she spent with me efficiently, showed me how to approach problems so that I could figure out how to solve them instead of just memorizing rules, and showed me how to work through problems in a timely fashion. She made me feel comfortable and out of the many tutors I have had was my favorite. Not only is she professional but she is sweet and actually wants you to learn. It is worth it to have someone you are comfortable with, who always comes prepared, and who is willing and able to show you the same problems in different ways until it finally clicks.
Mayya is best tutor. She has helped me tremendously in Chemistry and I will use her services for future classes such as Organic Chemistry, Biology and Physics. She is very well educated on each subject, and extensively helps her students understand material which is her top priorit. She is very sweet, calm, and easy-going. She always knows how to prepare me very well for exams, and can calm me down when I am nervous for a huge test! She is willing to meet often, and is very accommodating to her students schedule's, always putting her students first. She is the best!
Mayya was the best tutor that I could have asked for! She was my tutor for organic chemistry II at NYU this summer. I had already taken the course at my own university, Brown, and having done poorly in it, dropped the course and decided to take it again this summer. Mayya made things that were not clear to me over the course of a year in a half, crystal clear in almost an hour. She was always there with practice problems and explanations and always willing to answer all of the questions that I had. I would have never been as successful as I was in the course without Mayya!
with the hell summer I went through trying to accomplish the impossible by passing chemistry 1 and 2, Maaya has gave me the confidence and knowledge to accomplish my goal. I would reccommend her for anyone who needs help in chemistry.
Great tutor! Takes the time to explain complicated concepts, has a good grasp of the material (I was studying organic chemistry) and is very patient. I highly recommend her.
