UC Berkeley (Genetics)
Pecs University Medical School (MD)
I love learning and teaching alike. My first teaching experience was in high school when I helped teach inner city children how to swim. Following high school, I earned a bachelor's degree in genetics at UC Berkeley, during which time I worked as a teacher's assistant for a genetics professor. While in medical school in Hungary, I tutored Hungarians in English, and medical students in anatomy, physiology, biochemistry and biophysics. I completed internship and residency in Internal Medicine in the United States. As a senior resident I was responsible for teaching and supervising junior residents and interns. Although I currently work as a freelance science writer, my love of teaching has led me to continue tutoring (mainly math to middle and high school students) over the years.
When tutoring, I strive to make lessons engaging, effective and enjoyable. Specifically, I tailor lessons according to an individual student's needs and involve students in a dialogue by asking questions that provoke thought, conversation, and perhaps humor. Because facts and figures are easily looked up in the information age, I place particular emphasis on thinking and on "learning how to learn". My teaching goals for any student are threefold: 1. learn the material (well!) 2. pass the test/subject (with a comfortable margin!), and 3. enjoy it (most challenging with math!).

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
Math is one of my favorite subjects because it involves problem solving. The challenge for students is to learn how to think in terms of symbols, unknowns, constants, and how they relate to one another. Once these concepts are mastered, algebra becomes much easier.
American History is so important, yet it seems to be under-appreciated. I believe it's very important for students to learn about how the United States became the country it is today and how we have freedoms that many other countries don't!
The incredible diversity of life forms on earth makes biology particularly fascinating to study. As an undergraduate student, I majored in genetics because of my interest in reproductive biology and heredity. My passion for biology is so great that I can't imagine a boring or unenlightening lesson in this subject.
Language is key to communication and excellent communication is priceless. English, as a mixed German-Latin language, is difficult to master, particularly for non-native speakers. However, good language skills do more than simply enhance effective communication, they also open doors to literature and poetry!
English for non-native speakers is challenging both because English is a mixed German-Latin language and because English, unlike many languages, is not a phonetic language. For this reason it is just as important for students of English as a foreign language to practice speaking and listening in English as it is to practice reading and writing in English.
