"I have worked with students of varying abilities, including those with learning difficulties and gifted students. I grew up in the Chicago area, but I was born in Ukraine, so I speak Russian fluenty. I also speak Spanish--I learned it in school and still use it to this day with my husband's family. Outside of work, I am married with a 2-year-old son."

"I learned Spanish as a second language, and becoming fluent was one of the most exciting things I have ever done. Helping beginners to feel comfortable with the language is very rewarding. Last, I have worked with so many students who have great ideas, but struggle to write them down effectively in the ways that teachers, tests and colleges require. I love to help students represent themselves and their ideas well through essay-writing, and I focus especially on ACT, SAT and college applications.."

" That was not without it's challenges initially, however. Due to my weak academic background from high school, I spent my first year and summer at school catching up to the typical physics program, and had to spend extra time learning the advanced mathematical techniques needed to succeed in the program. Towards the end of my four years, I had a chance to explore other areas I was interested in, such as theater design, music theory, and fencing. When I finished my BA program, I tried my hand at research. I spent a year working on a project with Fermilab working on locating the Higgs boson." ...

"My teacher instilled in me the firm belief that the past shapes the present, and that those who understand history have the power to shape the future. Literature has always been a close second-favorite; I'm an avid reader of fiction both classic and contemporary, and I hope to someday publish a novel of my own. Outside of education, I'm an amateur actor and guitarist/vocalist, and I maintain a close relationship with my alma mater's theater program. While I enjoy traveling (my passport has stamps from the UK and France, and needs more), I love Chicago, and teaching and performing help keep my head up when the White Sox inevitably break my ...
