Elementary (K-6th)

I have previously tutored children ages 4 through 12 in reading at a public library. I understand that children in this age group need to be taught in a creative, yet structured manner, because they lose focus quickly when tasks become difficult. I have also worked with this age group as a swim instructor.


Phonics

When I taught children ages 4 through 12 how to read at a local public ibrary, I made phonics flashcards that enabled them to hear the connection between letters and sounds. Phonics flashcards are one of the best ways to help a child build up confidence in reading individual words, and eventually, sentences and paragraphs.


Russian

I was born in Moscow, Russia and Russian is my first language. I have been involved in a Russian choir group in order to keep up my language skills while living in America. I have gone to school in Russia, so I know how to read, write, and speak the language fluently. I have taught individuals basic Russian in the past, and I have access to many textbooks and worksheets for students to use as well.


Organic Chemistry

I have taken Organic Chemistry for one year at The California Institute of Technology, and I am proficient with reactions that involve alcohols, alkanes, aromatics, esters, and ethers. I have also worked in laboratories that use organic chemistry to conduct their research, so I have hands-on experience with this subject. I have also studied texts that help with the Organic Chemistry section of the MCAT exam.


Python

I have taken a Python class at Caltech (California Institute of Technology). Our assignments, for example, involved us programming a Connect-Four game and also an interactive Sudoku game. The class focused on applying built-in functions to carry out certain tasks, which gave me a more practical knowledge of Python.
