About Victoriya

My enthusiasm for teaching Biology comes from long ago. While completing my undergraduate studies, I was a Biology Teaching Assistant for advanced high school students. During my professional research years in cardiovascular and renal science, I was in charge of numerous intense courses for undergraduate and graduate students in Physiology, Pharmacology, Molecular Biology and Laboratory Practice. I work with all Biology categories through AP level.

It is very important to not only memorize facts, but teach students to think, speak, and write with clarity, precision, and independence. I deeply enjoy tailoring a program for individual student needs and seeing progress and results in education. I like to structure my lessons so it will be easier for students and parents to follow the process. I believe that a positive attitude and supportive environment will help my students in the long run. My teaching style includes deep student engagement via questions and discussions,quizzes and sketching, many visual aids and materials, fun tasks for curious learners, and age appropriate games.

I am looking forward to meet new students and continue to help through my established relationships.

Approved subjects

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.

Physiology

I have a degree in Cardiovascular Physiology. I worked more then 15 years in Physiology/Pharmacology research laboratories in Russia and USA. I taught Physiology to undergraduate students and privately tutor on this subject.

Thorough, patient and clear

My daughter is taking freshman biology in college and needed general help, not just one concept. Not only did Victoriya explain the material in clear terms, she provided strategies for her and study materials relevant to the chapter. We will use her again and again.
