I have years of experience mentoring and tutoring graduate and undergraduate college students, young adults and children.
My teaching philosophy is to teach and provide tools so the student could eventually be able to succeed on his/her own. I concentrate on developing Scientific thinking through leading questions. With young students, I play games, build puzzles and work on logic riddles in addition to their regular curriculum, to develop math and scientific thinking.
I tutor Cell Biology, Microbiology, Biochemistry, Genetics and Physiology at college levels, high school level Biology and General Science and Math K-8.

In addition to science, languages and linguistics is my other passion. I also teach Hebrew and Russian, both adults and children. Although at first, one might think that the two languages could not be more different, but they are both based on "roots" and the modern Hebrew was developed by a person whose first language was Russian. I am fluent in both Hebrew and Russian and familiar with the culture as well.

I have tons of patience and experience working with ADD/ADHD children. I received my Ph.D in Cancer Immunology from Hebrew University, Jerusalem, Israel and I conducted my post-doctorate academic research at Harvard Medical School trying to understand the players leading to Cancer development and drugs that will be more efficient. A couple of years ago I moved to the Biotech industry concentrating on personalized medicine approach to treatment.

Biochemistry

Biochemistry is one of the subjects that I am very passionate about. Not only, I have the theoretical knowledge on the subject but I have designed and executed Biochemical experiment throughout my career as a scientist. I have instructed and tutored many undergraduate and graduate students on the subject.

Biology

I am a PhD scientist and I have been studying and teaching Biology sciences for over 20 years.
I try to transfer to my students the passion and excitement I have toward this subject. Through the years I have tutored and mentored children, young adults, undergraduate and graduate college students. I organize my classes according to the level of my students and find the most efficient way to bring the information.

Elementary Math

Young children are naturally curious. When I work with young children, I like to develop their mathematical thinking through games, puzzles and riddles. During games children can learn the basics of mathematical thinking and concepts like, measurement, comparison, logic and more. I have years of experience working with young children on school curriculum, and extra school math activities like Math Olympics.

Elementary Science

I have years of experience working with young children on science curriculum, science projects for school and science fairs.

Genetics

I hold Ph.D in Cancer Immunology. I have studied genetics through the years, from its history starting with Mendeleev and the current approach to genome sequensing and in particular cancer genetics, as more and more scientist consider cancer as a genetic disorder and mentored many students through the years. I played active role in understanding and in conducting research of the genetics and proteomics of cancer.

Hebrew

I grow up and was educated in Israel. I am a native speaker of the modern Hebrew language. I studied the modern and the more ancient varieties of the Hebrew language and its grammar. Taught speaking and grammar to adults, including new immigrants to Israel, and to children. I use books and a lot of media, like newspapers (in easy Hebrew),magazines, TV clips and dramatized conversations. For children I also use songs and short animation clips, to reenforce the subject.

MCAT

I am a PhD level Biomedical professional. I have tutored and instructed students interested to apply to Medical school. I am proficient in tutoring Cell Biology, Molecular Biology, Genetics, Biochemistry, Organic and General Chemistry, all subjects needed to pass the MCAT.

Microsoft Excel

I am a patient tutor, experienced in work with adults and children. Microsoft Excel can be used for many tasks in many fields such as building databases for inventories and information and a variety of graphic presentation of data, if it's scientific, economical or environmental. I am using Excel on a daily basis for many aspects of my work and I can teach you how to use it for work or personal needs.

Physical Science

I have been studying and teaching science for the last 20 years. Physical science is a combination of earth science, physical chemistry, molecular physics and is one of my most favorite subjects. When I teach the subject I try to expose my students to the up to date information and my excitement and love toward science. When I work with children I combine children safe (kitchen) experiments, models and colorful illustrations.

Physiology

I am a PhD level scientist. For the last 20 years I taught and mentored undergraduate and graduate students in physiology and related subjects. I try to transfer to my students the passion and excitement I have toward this subject. I organize my classes according to the level of my students, bring to them the most updated information and find the most efficient way to present the information and knowledge.

Russian

I am a native Russian speaker. I studied Russian literature (in Russian), for state High school exams (like the AP exams in US). through the years, I taught reading and writing of the Russian alphabet (Cyrillic)to children. And worked on pronunciation and vocabulary with both adults and children. In addition to teaching books, like "bukvar", I like to use different media like TV clips, songs, newspapers, magazines and etc.

Study Skills

I am Ph.D level professional. I mentored and instructed many students in how to generate and find relevant information and data and how to summarize and analyses data and studies. My teaching philosophy is to provide students of all ages with relevant tools and study skills to help them to became independent learners. By teaching them how to build a study plan, brake the work to manageable tasks and how to look and find the needed information, students can learn to achieve their goals.

Great Tutor I started seeing Rosalia about halfway through a term in which I was taking a 200-level cell biology class. I went from a D average to ending the term with a B after I started working with her. She is very knowledgeable, and was always available. She'll answer any question you have by email if you forgot to ask in a session and she does a very good job of relating the material learned in the cours ...
