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.
