Hello, I'm Katarina, a Research Scientist with a Ph.D. in Molecular and Cancer Biology and more than 8 years of academic experience, and with over 500 citations in peer-reviewed journals. During my career, I have developed solid interpersonal communication and listening skills in interactions with both my colleagues and students I had the privilege to train and introduce them to the amazing world of science. Since I possess a strong knowledge of human behavior, learning and motivation, personality, and other psychological concepts, I have always managed to break down real and perceived obstacles to learning and to help students on their way to reaching personal goals through academic and personal development.

My main fields of expertise are Molecular Biology, Cancer Biology, Immunology, Virology, Genetics, Bioinformatics (GSEA, primer design for PCR, primer design for ChIP and specific gene regions...). I have 3 years of experience in tutoring MSc and Ph.D. students, both in theoretical and practical knowledge, as well as in guiding them in writing essays and Master/Ph.D. theses.

I also give lessons for successful passing of the ASCP Molecular Biology Exam needed to obtain MB Technologist certificate.

I always aim to encourage and foster intellectual curiosity in my students, by presenting the topic in a fun and interesting way, because I believe that with the right support, everyone can learn. I also try my best to challenge their thinking, foster debate and develop the ability of students to engage in critical discourse and rational thinking.
Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have!

Amazing tutor!

Katarina and her husband helped me analyzing an immunology paper I could barely understand and they were incredibly helpful. They went above and beyond to make sure I understood every detail; they did their own research before each lessons and provided additional material. I highly recommend Katarina!

Very knowledgeable and a good tutor to explain the material

The excel master I needed to explain the material to me, Very efficient in explaining mathematical formulas and typing them in an understandable format. I would love to hire her again any day, you are the reason why I am understanding my class materials, thanks!
