About Yitzhar

My name is Yitzhar, I'm a student at UC Santa Cruz, and I want to teach you something amazing- something I'm passionate about. I love engaging with people, and whether it's Latin, Biology, Soccer, Piano or Public Speaking, I'm confident that together we can improve your performance and have a great time doing it. I am easy to reach, and flexible with my schedule. I hope you're interested, and that you give me the chance to teach you something. Feel free to message me if you have any further questions.

I am currently working in the immunology lab of Professor Martha Zúñiga at UC Santa Cruz. I am proficient in the subject on a high school level, including AP, having taken two years of advanced high school biology, at the honors and AP level.

I was certified to be in the top 1% of high school Latin students in the country in my senior year, receiving a gold medal on the National Latin Examination, and a 5 on the AP Latin test. I am passionate about languages, and have taken four years of high school Latin, from basic grammar lessons to studying Virgil and Caesar.

I learned to write like anyone does- by reading. Since I was very young, I read at a rate of a book a week, often walking around from place to place with my nose stuck into a new story. Then, about five years ago, I started writing short stories outside of school for fun. It was a great experience, and I published several of my pieces.

I have been playing piano for over a decade, well-versed in both classical and jazz. As a Merit Scholar at the Community School of Music and Art in Mountain View, California, I played both individually, and in a group, participating in many concerts, and arranging a few on my own. I am confident that with my experience, I can teach piano to younger students on a basic level.

Soccer is a great passion of mine, and for a long time I've thought about how to best perfect one's technique, and condition one's body, to become truly successful on a soccer pitch. I hope to bring my structured and comprehensive approach to coaching to this sport.

I hope we have the chance to work together.
