Ever wondered how electron behavior matches the popularity contests you find in high school or how to improve your vocabulary by posting on Facebook?
I help my students to develop a love of learning by enabling them to think critically about the material, develop their confidence, and learn to adapt the material to their strengths in a way that is engaging, accessible, and even fun.
I have been a ballroom dance instructor (primarily swing and blues) for the last nine years, teaching at multiple college campuses, including Brandeis and MIT.
All 13 of my pre-college years were in a parochial school, and I have continued to study Bible every single year. I also have a year of experience tutoring Bible at the elementary school level, and am consistently asked to give the homily (which I do several times each year).
I am fluent in Hebrew, and all of the aforementioned Bible courses were taught in Hebrew, and included most major commentaries, including ancient and modern Jewish (Rashi, Sarna) and Christian (e.g., Luther, Eliade) commentators/scholars.
I spent several years as a statistician on research projects at Massachusetts General Hospital, working on genetics and neurology projects. I have 10 years of experience as a data analyst and statistician across seven different laboratories.
My doctorate is in organizational behavior and positive psychology, and I have spent a number of years studying how people flourish and use their capabilities in an organizational setting. I have spent many years advising students on career choices, and do so professionally as a coach.
Originally a chemistry major, I love the subject and spent many years as a chemistry tutor, working with students at both the high school and college levels.
I have been an alumni interviewer for my alma mater for about 10 years. I have also worked for a test-prep company for the last two years doing college and graduate school counseling. This has involved choosing schools, reading/editing personal statements, fixing resumes, and helping students articulate their reasons for a graduate career.
I spent many years formally studying MATLAB in college, as it was the backbone of my coursework in computational neurosicence. I used it extensively in my research, and continue to use it on occasion when complex analyses arise.
I have a Ph.D. in psychology (research-based, non-clinical), and have been teaching at the college level for several years. My specialties are introductory psychology, cognitive science, social psychology, and organizational behavior.
