My main teaching strategy is to achieve full understanding of a subject starting with the initial preparation level and taking into account the individual features of a student. I always try to delineate the problem as specifically as possible and to target it progressively in the course of studies. I work with students interactively, emphasizing the problem solving skills and creative thinking. My approach is to set the goals for a particular student and then focus on accomplishing these goals.
I graduated from Princeton University, completing my Ph.D. in Chemistry. While in Graduate School, I was teaching precepts and laboratory sessions to undergraduates. Before I went to Princeton, I was teaching Chemistry on both undergraduate and graduate levels at the University of Illinois at Chicago. I started as a tutor during my college years and continued in Graduate School. Currently, I work as as a Research Associate at Harvard Medical School, teaching occasionally. Overall, I have more then 15 years of teaching experience as a tutor and in-class teacher. The major part of my teaching experience in related to the field of Chemistry, including General, Physical, Organic, Analytical Chemistry as well as Biochemistry. I'm also teaching Mathematics,Physics and Biology.
