About

Hi! My name is Valeria Golosov and I am a recent graduate from the Australian National University with a Bachelor of Finance majoring in Capital Markets and a Bachelor of Science majoring in Statistics and minoring in Maths.

I have over 4 years of tutoring experience and have tutored over 30 students (aged 6 to 16) during that time in a variety of subjects including Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Geography and English.

My main aim as a tutor is to foster a positive and patient learning environment during my lessons. I know what it is like to have tutors and teachers put me down during lessons and make me feel bad for struggling and I strive to be the complete opposite of that as a tutor as a result. I believe it is my job to raise a student's confidence in not only a particular subject, but in learning as well.

My work as a tutor includes:
- Preparing objectives and outlines for lessons by working closely with parents and students to identify weak areas and following the curriculum requirements of the school or exam.
- Routinely keeping notes and analysing the students’ progression to understand whether previously outlined short - term and long - term objectives are being met.
- Adapting the method of instruction to fit the learning needs of the student and build a positive learning environment.

My achievements with regards to tutoring have been:
- Helping to admit one student into his first-choice secondary school by preparing him for the entrance exams. This school valued a high grade in the Maths exam, hence why I was hired.
- Helping to admit one student into the Top Maths group in her secondary school after previously struggling with Maths in her primary school. She was even recently invited to attend a gifted maths program at Kings College London.

$30/hr for Yr 8 and lower

Reviews

Valeria has helped me with multiple statistics and finance questions. She was extremely thorough with explaining the questions and guiding me through finding the answers at my own pace while also explaining what went wrong if I got something wrong therefore expanding my understanding even further. I would 100% recommend her to anyone.

Character references

Valeria has been of great help to both my sons in improving their understanding of Maths and their performance in assessments. What is particularly impressive is that one of them doesn’t like and struggled with Maths - she helped him get a decent GCSE. For my other son Maths is his favourite subject and she has encouraged him and he is doing very well.

Valeria has regularly tutored my daughter in maths from year 6 to year 10. During those 4 years I have found Valeria to be intelligent, patient, responsible and committed and my daughter has gone from struggling in maths to being invited to attend a maths program at Kings College London.

Prefer to tutor online, however I am open to host lessons at my apartment or travel to the student's house if it is easy to access by foot or transport. Also, tutoring rate may increase depending upon the difficulty of travel.
