I live in Detroit, Michigan, but am previously from Russia. I have worked for several universities. Right now I teach at Lawrence Tech University. Helping others to be all they can be is especially rewarding for me. I love going to school and have several degrees. First, right out of high school I got my BS in Mathematics and Biology at Northwestern University; and then I went to the same university for my Masters degree. When I taught at the Wayne State University, I worked on my doctorate in math. I really believe in the power of education! In my free time I like to paint, work with polymer clay, and bead. I watch Gotham and anything on sci fi/history/discover/news channels. I like to stay at home and work or play video games. I really believe that math can be fun. There are so many ways that it can be used and applied in business and in your personal life, but many of these opportunities are lost if one has not had the wonderful experience of studying math. I'm looking forward to working with you.
