Testimonials

“I highly recommend Mrs. Olga Bochareva as a math tutor.  Over the past two years she has tutored my daughter in high school geometry and Algebra II. Mrs. Bochareva is a highly skilled teacher and equally good at motivating students to work hard and do their best.  She provided instruction that was specific to my daughter’s needs and helped her not only achieve success in math but also feel a strong sense of accomplishment and self worth”

~Mary K. Easton

 

 

“Best tutor ever!!!”
I am so happy I got to work with Olga. She is extremely knowledgeable, patient and helpful. One thing that helped me a lot is that not only she taught me Math in an easy, understandable manner, but she also helped me develop a mindset for success. She is also really great when it comes to helping with tests anxiety, I’ve learned some super easy tricks from her that help me stay calm and focused during my test. I highly recommend her to anyone who need help in Math and wants to get the highest scores on Math tests. ”

“I loved having Mrs. Olga as my tutor, she is kind and patient. She also truly cared about making sure I understood everything, teaching me math in a way that I could understand. She taught me great testing skills, I was always prepared for tests after a session with her, and my grades improved! ”

~Maria Easton, grade 11

 

 

“Amazing tutor, I don’t think I could have made it without her help”
I needed to take this very important placement test, and If I didn’t pass it I was going to get kicked out of college!!! Olga helped me with all my algebra material, she was very patient with me and knew how to get me motivated to do pass the test. She was also great in helping me with my test anxiety witch was really important for me. She gave me the tools to finally be successful and pass my test.

“Great tutor- have referred 2 students”
– Sheshieda D. Pearland, TX on 1/16/14
We knew are our daughter would need help with Geometry in 10th grade, she has always struggled with math. We made arrangements for weekly tutoring at the beginning of school. With Mrs. Olga’s tutoring, my daughter has gone from making some of the lowest grades in class to making the highest grades. She made 90 on her report card and has made A’s on her last two tests. Mrs. Olga is so patient and very good at knowing when my daughter is frustrated or not grasping a concept. One additional hour per week of high quality instruction is making the difference. We are aiming for top 10% and Mrs. Olga is helping us get there. I have recommended her to two other parents. Thanks, Olga!!!

 

 

“Best Tutor!”
– Johanna G. Houston, TX on 1/26/14
Thank you Ms. Olga for all your help. Because of your precise help and patience my grades went from 70’s or below to 90’s or above. I even made it to the “A Club” in my pre-ap geometry class. Sooo excited! Thank you so much again, you are the best!

 

 

“Great tutor, with many helpful techniques!”
– Andrea W. Pearland, TX on 7/27/14
When I first met Olga I had a 72 in my precal class. After I met with Olga a few months in the final semester my grade made it all the way to an 86. But Olga didn’t just help me with Precal, she helped me with SAT prep at the same time. On top of all of that she conquered the real problem. The problem was text anxiety. How did we fix this problem? EFT. Olga is a certified EFT practitioner. Before the EFT I would panic in the middle of my tests completely blanking until eventually I ran out of time for my test. But with Olga’s help everything turned out great, I wish I had contacted her sooner.

 

 

‘Mrs. Olga is an Awesome Tutor ”
My son, TG was recommended by a relative to try her. Well, at that time TG had already failed the 1st 9 wks of geometry with a 67. To make a long story short , my son passed geometry with a “B” and the teacher as well as the Counselor was so amazed how his mind , willingness and understanding had changed that they decided to allow him to retake the final from the 1st 9 wks .. I’m am so proud of him !!!! and grateful to Mrs.Olga !!!
Update 5 month later: TG took his final Exam and got 90!!Thanks for all you do!!! We love you Mrs. Olga.”

My Passion + Persistence = My Profession

It was a hot summer day of June 1997 in the small city of Astrakhan, Russia – my senior year in High School. I remember walking out of the local library and being so over the top happy with my my new decision I could not walk straight and was literally skipping.

This was THE the day I’ve made a life changing decision to apply to College to pursue my dream of becoming a Math Teacher.

Both of my parents are doctors, my mom is pediatrician and my dad is a physician. They mentioned more than once that becoming a doctor could be a great choice for me: I was smart, persistent and they could help with me with medical school.

But I had a dream of standing in from of class teaching Math, helping people become better problem solvers and inspire critical thinking, so that they can make better decisions in life. That desire was so strong that neither low pay nor long hours required to study to become a Math Major Certified Teacher could stop me.

Fast forward 5 years, I am graduating Astrakhan State Pedagogical University with Honors in Masters in Teaching Mathematics. The same month as I get my diploma, I’m getting an invite to teach in one of the largest districts in the US – Houston ISD and moving to USA. Another 8 years down the road I am joining faculty of award winning Debakey HS – one of the top performing school in the nation.

Why am I sharing this story?

Education is one of my top core values in life. This story is how my passion for Education gave me more than I could possibly dream in life. It was my unique ability to learn (often better than others) that allowed achieve what I really want in life.

I am a Math Tutor now, but really I am an advocate for young souls, helping them learn with ease and grace. I am on a mission to help you learn from the heart, to show you that learning Math could be easy and fun, so not only you can get the grade you want and deserve, but tap in to the true self-confidence, knowing YOU CAN DO IT.

My students understand that self-discipline is actually liberating, it allows you freedom to choose who you want to be in life. My goal is to help more students achieve long term results of becoming great learners, so they can improve their test scores and get accepted to the Universities of their dreams.

This is why I created “Math Mentoring Program” – one of a kind, semester long 1X1 tutoring program designed to help your child develop a strong Math foundation, maintain high grades and develop exceptional problem solving skills.

I wanted to invite you to join me in the program for next semester. You can learn more about it here. For this semester I am limiting enrollment to only 15 brilliant students to join in. Keep an eye on your inbox, with an invite from me in the next couple of days. Registration opens Tuesday, December 1st.

With love and passion for learning,

Summer Success Academy

“Math Success Academy” Summer 2016

By Olga D Bochareva,
MEd, Certified Math Tutor

Turn your dream Math grades into reality.
Build up your confidence in your ability to perform well on tests.
Improve your problem solving skills.

What would it be like if you could?
– Feel confident and at ease taking tests {+ get the scores that you want and deserve}
– End the frustration of making careless mistakes on tests and become laser focused {so answering questions and solving problems with precision is natural for you}
 Avoid the stress at the beginning of the school year, you’ll have peace of mind that you have a strong foundation in Math

Let’s be honest, nobody wants to do Math in Summer {well, maybe except me :)}. Most students are looking forward to summer vacation to take a break from it, not to improve and strengthen their skills. And God knows you deserve the break.

The truth is: you don’t need  5 hours a/week of math work to get you up to speed and maintain/get ahead in your Math course. Even 1 hour a week will shoot you light years ahead of your peers.

According to Malcolm Gladwell, the bestselling author of “The Outliers” :“America does not have a school problem, it has a summer vacation problem”. Yes, we have about 180 school days to learn what we need to learn, but we also have a nearly 3 month long summer break to unlearn it all.

I remember my high school experience: having this feeling at the beginning of school year looking on the board in Math class: “Yes, I think I’ve seen it before… As a matter of fact, I used to be good at it {referring to problems I used to be great at about half a year ago}”. I recall how HARD it was to get back to the Math mode after the extended break.

This is when I started practicing math in summer and discovered that even a couple of hours a week will not only release the feeling of mental freeze at the beginning of the school year, but also will sky rocket my results.

This is one of the reasons I graduated in the top 5% in both High School and College.

I’ve had so many amazing students doing great during the school year, but they were completely stuck and lost at the beginning of the year, spending too much time trying to remember the foundation of what the teacher was now trying to build upon.

Unfortunately, in our Educational System, there is no built-in solution to this problem yet.

That’s why I created Math Success Summer Academy.

The purpose of the Academy is: to help students enhance and strengthen skills learned during the previous school year + build strong foundations for the upcoming year.

Who is this program for: This program will benefit both students who still struggle with Math, as well as the ones who are on the high achieving end. The Academy is one of a kind tutoring program that is uniquely tailored to your needs, requests and learning goals.

What to expect:
High quality ultra-individualized one-on-one instructions
– Highly personal learning plan developed based on each student’s strengths and weaknesses to ensure confidence and a successful learning experience
 4 tutoring sessions, starting 1st week of July
– Personalized flexible schedule (yes, its ok if you’re out of town on vacation, I’ll be happy to work around your schedule and even credit up to two session toward fall semester, if you end up not using all of them in summer).

Investment – $300 (only $75/session). Enrollment ends May 28th

Early bird special – $250 (only about $60/session!). Early bird special ends May the 15th.
At this time, I only have about 10 spots available. So if you think that the program is the right fit for you, sign up today.

Say No to test anxiety and Yes to learning Math with ease and having fun in the process!
Get your Math skills up to the higher level in just 4 weeks

“Thank you Ms. Olga for all your help. Because of your precise help and patience, my grades went from 70′s or below to 90′s or above. I even made it to the “A Club” in my pre-ap geometry class. Sooo excited! Thank you so much again, you are the best!”
– Johanna G. Houston, Tx

My son absolutely loves going to his Math sessions. He began Math tutorials with a negative and discouraged attitude. His grades, as well as his attitude and impression regarding math, have done a 180 – he is positive and motivated when it comes to mathematics. He is so eager to learn! Olga is so creative and makes learning math fun! The time spent is thoroughly enjoyed – so much so that my son wants to do tutorials in the summer and year round!
