Founded Powertutors in 2016
Favourite subject at school: Maths
About Me: Not many people know this about me but I have ASD and Dyslexia. Growing up in Ukraine, I always struggled in School and found it difficult to socialise or make friends. I knew I was different, but I didn’t know how or why. My parents always thought I was not performing well in school because I was lazy and should do more work.
When I was ten years old, my mum hired a maths tutor for me, this was after endless shocking school reports. The maths tutor was so gentle and caring, she helped me understand how I learn. She tailored the material and based the maths problems around my interests to engage me. Her love and passion for maths really was infectious and I too fell in love it – so much so, that I ended up studying it for my degree!
Fast forward to today, I want Powertutors to do the same for students who are going through what I went through. Powertutors is our way to match the student with the right tutor, because we understand how unique everyone is and it takes one incredible educator to make a real difference. Till this day I am extremely grateful to my maths tutor and had it not been for her, I would have not be doing what I do today!
