I am a professional writer of commentary and literary essays. I have a very high level of skill and experience in the craft of writing, and I love the English language. I have worked as a columnist and essayist for Newsday, The Philadelphia Inquirer, and other publications, including NPR, and have had my blog posts picked up by various online and academic outlets. My writing is also featured on a nonprofit website and in an international European forum.

I came to Olya in desperate need of help with the English section of the SAT, especially the reading section. My score on this section has improved tremendously in only a matter of weeks! One of my main issues while taking the test was speed, as I would spend too much time on each question and run out of time before I could answer each one. Olya taught me how to quickly go through the test and recognize each question type. She is the reason why I was able to complete all of the questions in my most recent practice exam BEFORE time was up! In addition, Olya is extremely accomplished and goes in depth with every explanation, allowing students to build lifelong grammar skills that will benefit them even after their SAT. I would highly recommend Olya for all of your SAT and English tutoring needs!

I have been studying for the GMAT verbal section with Olya. During our lessons, I tried to hold on to every one of Olya?s words. Olya is uniquely talented. She knows how to break down all the questions into the basics. When I was preparing for the GMAT with a previous tutor, I was overwhelmed by all the information. Olya will guide you step by step as you build your skills. I am grateful to Olya for all her efforts.

Olya helped me craft my personal statement for medical school. I came into the initial session knowing the story that I wanted to tell, but I had difficulties explaining it in a way that would be well received. After some sessions, Olya helped me tell the story in my voice in a clear and interesting way, and I became a better writer in the process. I highly recommend Olya for anyone who needs help with writing.

Olya gave great direction in helping me pursue my Graduate degree personal statement. She has an insider approach and knows exactly what the school's are looking for when it comes to this process.

Olya went out of her way and helped work on my personal statement outside of our tutored time. She helped my essay sound more direct. I was able to fit in a lot of information into a 650 word limit essay thanks to Olya!
- Lianna D. from Glendale, CA
Ah what can I say. Olya helped me get into my dream school and for that I can?t be anymore thankful. She genuinely wants you to do well, even took time beyond our lesson to really help me out and make sure my statement essay was up to standard. She wanted to make sure there was no gaps in my essay and that everything read well with good flow, and of course made sure I explained everything properly. It was eye-opening to work with her. I?m so grateful thank you!

Olya has been thorough in teaching me grammar for the writing section of the SAT. I learn more than just how to get the questions right and it has been very helpful in my overall knowledge of writing. Moreover, she emanates a contagious passion of anything in the subject of English, which is so valuable as now it feels we are being taught only to earn grades. Thank you, Olya.

Olya worked on writing essays with my daughter who is 10 to prep for middle school exams. She was fun, engaging and pleasant to work with. My daughter read aloud very proudly her essay at the end of the lesson.
- Izzy K. from New York, NY
My son was impressed, she is very knowledgable in both english and word phrasing. She is very sociable and has good communication with students. She takes time to understand the work and is very patient. She critiques in a respectful way.

Ms. Olya T. is the best Tutor we have ever met. In three months, she helped our daughter improve her PSAT Verbal scores by 220 points, which placed her in 99th Percentile. Wow! Olya knows how to work with adolescents; our daughter enjoyed her lessons and improved not only her language skills but her self-confidence as a result. Our daughter is now continuing to work with Olya on the SAT. My husband and I feel very fortunate to have found her. Tutoring with Olya has been one of the best investments we could have made in our daughter?s future. Thank you Olya, your dedication to your students is remarkable, you are a World Changer and a Super Hero in my books.

Olya reviewed an essay that my daughter wrote, and provided many pointed, valuable feedbacks. She also discussed writing styles and plots - great expertise in the field.
- Larry Z. from Strongsville, OH
My son had four lessons with Olya, over 10 days, just before his exam. He needed help with the writing section of the SAT, and she was definitely the tutor to go to. Olya was extremely knowledgeable, patient and detailed. Using the official SAT practice book, she guided my son over the language section. She was able to explain to him the different types of questions and how to address them. She helped him increase his confidence level and lower his anxiety about the exam.
- Khalil A. from State College, PA
Olya truly cares about her students! She has helped my daughter improve her college essay tremendously! Olya goes the extra mile so that her students succeed. She is very detailed and patient. With the deadline for college applications coming up very soon, she was given a very short time span and still made the essay outstanding! Not only is she an outstanding tutor, she is so kind and friendly! I highly recommend her for your college essays. I have worked with multiple college counselors in the past, she is definitely the best!
- Sophia P. from Granger, IN
Olya provided my son excellent support in helping him during his admissions essay process. Olya provided great feedback for my son in order to best distill and best showcase his academic background, personal achievements and aspirations. This collaboration with Olya helped towards his acceptance to an ivy in New York and highly competitive school in California. Thank you Olya!

Olya really knows how to teach the English language, and her commitment to teaching is amazing. She makes sure that I learn very complicated lessons in a simple way. She is always on time and gives timely followup on assignment. She makes every class interesting.?

We have had a wonderful experience working with Olya as our son's tutor. We are very pleased with our son's improvement in his writing skills and with his excellent SSAT score. We have also noticed his increased confidence. Olya has been very professional and very patient. Olya even spent extra time to get familiar with our son's curriculum and reading list, so that she could best help our son with his assignments, and she always personalized each lesson to focus on our son's areas of need. She showed our son how to focus on details in both his reading and writing. She taught him how to strive for excellence. Olya is extremely competent and has a lot of enthusiasm. We will definitely continue working with her. Jennifer and Ray S.

Olya is a blessing. She is the best and most helpful tutor I've ever met. She is really knowledgeable about English grammar and writing. She really helped me with my application essays for nursing school and resume. She helped me get my application done on time and look professional. She also worked with me on my grammar issues and to perfect my essay writing. I would highly recommend Olya.
- Tatiana D. from Sacramento, CA
Olya is currently helping me write MSW applications. She is diligent and makes sure every question is answered perfectly and to a T! We have worked over our scheduled time a a few times and she refuses to charge for it! She really wants the best for me and I assume all her students! She is available any time through text when I need her for last minute questions or concerns. She is also just extremely knowledgeable, kind, and patient throughout the stressful, long, process of writing application essays. Olya is truly the best tutor I?ve ever worked with! I am happy to update this review to say I admitted into into all my schools with scholarship aid, including Columbia and UPenn. At UPenn my interviewer commented on my writing and said it was beautiful and admitted me on the spot. I got a personal letter from Columbia, commenting specifically on my essay as a major factor in my admission
- Eileen C. from Wyckoff, NJ
I like that Olya is very precise because she pays attention to every word that I say or write. She helps me build my language skills as we read articles from the NY Times and other publications. Olya consistently corrects my pronunciation and pauses to explain sentence structure, vocabulary, idioms, American culture, and history. We also read literature. My language skills have improved immensely, as has my knowledge of American culture. I am glad that Olya is my tutor. Thank you!
- Igor S. from Ridgewood, NY
Olya was great , knowledgeable and incredibly informative. Looking forward to continue scheduling lessons with her. I now have the confidence going forward knowing there is someone knowledgeable helping me along the way.
