About Natalia


Bio

My main teaching strategy is to achieve full understanding of a subject starting with the initial preparation level and taking into account the individual features of a student. I always try to delineate the problem as specifically as possible and to target it progressively in the course of studies. I work with students interactively, emphasizing the problem solving skills and creative thinking. My approach is to set the goals for a particular student and then focus on accomplishing these goa...

My approach is to set the goals for a particular student and then focus on accomplishing these goals.

I graduated from Princeton University, completing my Ph.D. in Chemistry. While in Graduate School, I was teaching precepts and laboratory sessions to undergraduates. Before I went to Princeton, I was teaching Chemistry on both undergraduate and graduate levels at the University of Illinois at Chicago. I started as a tutor during my college years and continued in Graduate School. Currently, I work as as a Research Associate at Harvard Medical School, teaching occasionally. Overall, I have more then 15 years of teaching experience as a tutor and in-class teacher. The major part of my teaching experience in related to the field of Chemistry, including General, Physical, Organic, Analytical Chemistry as well as Biochemistry. I'm also teaching Mathematics,Physics and Biology.

I'm not a native English speaker but I have been teaching English at different levels for many years. I can clearly see what students have problems with and improve their learning and understanding. I can help them to develop the strategies to overcome this problems on the basis of my experience as both teacher and learner. I believe that my experience as an English teacher will be very helpful to those who are learning English as a second language. I also have experience of working with student who are not native speakers; when working with them I have developed strategies to learn more efficiently speaking language and to improve reading comprehension. I'm looking forward to teaching ESL and working with student on regular basis.

My major is Chemistry but I have a good experience in teaching Russian as well. I'm native Russian speaker, Russian is my first language. When I came to the US for Ph.D. program, I started to teach Russian in parallel with my main studies and found it very exciting and rewarding. While in graduate school, I did a lot of Russian teaching both in-class and as private lessons, addressing many topics - general communication, literature and writing, translations and interpreting. For the most part of my time, I worked with college and high school students, but I also have experience of teaching Russian to elementary school students and I had a chance to work with linguists as well. Currently, I also teach Russian privately, but not as much as I used to. My experience in teaching Russian is broad but my key teaching strategy is universal. I always do my best to achieve full understanding starting with the initial preparation level and taking into account the individual features of a student. I always try to delineate the problem as specifically as possible and to target it progressively in the course of studies. I work with students interactively, emphasizing the problem solving skills and creative thinking. My approach is to set the goals for a particular student and then focus on accomplishing these goals. When teaching Russian, I always try to expose the student to Russian culture as well, and I believe that this is the best way to learn it; cultural exposure makes students understanding deep and makes it much easier to speak the language.

Highly knowledgeable and competent tutor

According to my student: Natalia has an "encyclopedic knowledge" of chemistry that she is able to clearly and concisely explain. She is accommodating and is focused on giving the student what they need, which is exactly what we're looking for.

David, 13 lessons with Natalia

Great tutor!

Patient, clear, punctual, concise. Knows the material VERY well. I definitely recommend her to anybody taking Gen. Chem. Thank you so much Natalia.

Woosang, 9 lessons with Natalia

Not good enough at College level

Did not meet expectations at the college level. Maybe ok for HS level chemistry. She also did not understand the needs of the student client enough to be of any meaningful assistance. Also, difficulty in communications.

Robert, 1 lesson with Natalia

Great tutor!

I truly enjoyed working with Natalia, she is a great tutor and a great person as well. Her understanding of calculus is amazing, and I would recommend her to any of my friends struggling with the course.

Morad, 8 lessons with Natalia

Well knowledgeable tutor

I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to have Natalie guide me through my Chemistry content. She is flexible with the session times to accommodate my test schedules.

Monique, 27 lessons with Natalia

Brilliant!

There was a spark! The type of spark one receives when knowledge has been bestowed upon them. She made understanding the methods easy.

Kevin, 2 lessons with Natalia

Very good!

It was a very useful lesson!!! I was prepared with my seminar completely! All my questions were covered. Natalia rephrased all my sentences and it was very useful. It was really great.
