Bio

As a Chemical Physics PhD with a degree from the Weizmann Institute of Science and experience as a postdoctoral researcher at MIT, I have a unique understanding of the interplay between math, physics, and chemistry. Throughout my 30-year career in academia and industry, I have seen firsthand the importance of a strong math foundation for success in any science-related field, from introductory classes to postgraduate research.

As a Chemical Physics PhD with a degree from the Weizmann Institute of Science and experience as a postdoctoral researcher at MIT, I have a unique understanding of the interplay between math, physics, and chemistry. Throughout my 30-year career in academia and industry, I have seen firsthand the importance of a strong math foundation for success in any science-related field, from introductory classes to postgraduate research.

In addition to my professional pursuits, I have always enjoyed teaching and have had the opportunity to serve as an adjunct professor. However, my favorite part of teaching has always been holding office hours and helping students one-on-one to overcome their difficulties and achieve a deeper understanding of the material. I find great satisfaction in those "lightbulb moments" when confusion is replaced with understanding, and concepts start to fall into place.

The COVID-19 pandemic and the shift to homeschooling provided me with the opportunity to apply my passion for teaching at home and refresh my skills in a variety of subjects, including AP Calculus, AP Chemistry, and AP Physics.

I am passionate about math and its applications in physics and chemistry, and I enjoy finding the simplest and most effective ways to explain difficult concepts. If you are in need of help with math, physics, or chemistry, I would be happy to schedule a free consultation to see how I can assist you in reaching your academic goals.

Sofia is great!

I reached out to her for help with my summer session calc 2 class. She was available the very next morning and took the time to familiarize herself with my homework before hand so that she could help me most effectively. She’s very intelligent and an excellent teacher. i highly recommend :)
