"Math and Science, pre-algebra through college. AP specialist."
In addition to a classroom perspective, and previous experience tutoring statistics to health sciences students, I was a professional neuroscience researcher for several years. So I've seen and done all sorts of statistics in the course of data analysis. (Note: mostly I was writing my own code in Matlab, but I'm also familiar with the SAS statistics software that's used in many Biostatistics courses). Actually, the data analysis was the part of that job that I liked best.
If you just need to pass a specific class or test, don't worry -- we'll keep our focus on what you need to know to succ ... More
My daughter says Natalia is very nice. She is patient and can make the material fun. Finally my daughter looks forward to her lessons, which is her least favorite subject. I highly recommend Natalia as a tutor.

While I do not have direct experience in teaching Russian, I do have 20 years of experience in teaching English. My thesis is the study in the field of Motivation of Learning Foreign Languages and Methods of Teaching English. I have 29 publications more in the same field. As methods of teaching foreign languages are similar, I am qualified to work as a Russian teacher/tutor. ... More

"Capture, save, share life's moments digitally"
I have used Photoshop Elements, Photoshop 7, CS4 and CS5.5. I am fluid in Mac and PC and have CS4 PC and CS5.5 for Mac. In addition to personal use, I have further instruction in effective Photoshop skills. Photoshop is a photo editing program that allows cropping, adjusting levels, exposure and color saturation. Filters, brushes and patterns allow for creative enhancement. I can reduce photos to black and white line drawings that can be colorized by hand with paints or colored pencils. I have used photoshop for personal editing, creating images, posters, and t-shirt designs. I have created bu ... More

"Licensed math and science teacher "
I use very targeted instruction with my students. Using a full diagnostic ACT test, we carefully select specific content to master. If we need to refresh plane geometry, but algebra is relatively strong, we really hone in on the geometry, especially because we know that there will be 14 questions out of 60 on plane geometry on the test!
We also discuss testing strategies. The ACT test is one of the most consistent tests ever designed, and understanding how the test is constructed and how to "read between the lines" can be quite valuable, especially if your student is not a good test taker.

"Certified Elementary Teacher"
As a certified Elementary teacher, I am eager to help students excel in academics and life. Over the past two years, while teaching at Sacheon English Library for Children and GNB English Academy, both in South Korea, I was able to feel the reward of imparting knowledge on young minds, while at the same time learning from the children and culture. The excitement in the faces of the students was inspiring in itself, but watching them apply what they had learned was a true joy. With education b... ... More
