Discover The Superpowers of Your Immune System Cells

In this science class (immunology), students will have an overview of their immune system’ superheroes (cells), where they are and the amazing actions they will take to protect us from pathogens.

Let's promote discussions and critical thinking activities (Q&A) so students will learn how the immune system cells team up to destroy a pathogen. We will go beyond that knowledge and learn what each of us can do to make sure our superheroes get the support they need (hello science of well-being!) The students will then review what they learned by role-playing: assuming the role of immune system cells and having the opportunity to teach each other what they can do to protect their team.

About Me

Hi! I am Paula. I am a scientist, especially curious about human cells and their troubled interaction with viruses.

As a teacher, I share my passion for immunology by showing students we all have superpowers! Our journey starts by looking into our immune system, extending that knowledge to learn scientific methods to discover the world around us. I am also very interested in learning "how to learn" and effective strategies to learn better.

I am a bachelor in Biomedicine with a master's in Science and Biotechnology. I am a certified ESL teacher and have been working at physical and online schools with 3 to 18-year-old students for +3 years.

It is well proven that we learn when we are relaxed and interacting with the material and others. This is why I bring interactive games so students will develop their critical thinking, also showing them they already have all the skills to become scientists! I can quickly adapt my class to their needs depending on how they interact. I really enjoy it when students are given the opportunity to teach each other, it serves as a review done by and for themselves!

When not in the classroom, I love spending time with my family (my husband and our ginger cat) and admiring the abundance of the ocean. The world is my backyard!
I will see you soon!

CLEP Exam Biology Preparation with Experienced Teacher
Hi everyone! I have been teaching private courses in Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics for 9 years. It is my passion to prepare my students for the future with school and exam studies. When I won the Anatolian Teacher High School in Istanbul in 2008 and Boğaziçi University in 2012, my biggest goal was to be a reliable role model for my students in the future. I am very happy that I have now made this dream come true since the year I entered university. Until this time, I have taught private lessons at secondary, high school and university level to numerous students from Turkey and abroad. I still continue to give private lessons on the online platform and teach Physics at an International School in Istanbul where California Education Standards (Cognia) are adopted. It is my passion to prepare my students for the future with school and exam studies. I am currently teaching for SAT Exam Preparation. SAT Subject Tests includes Physics, Math, Chemistry and Biology. I can teach both IB and American Curriculum as well. I teach my lessons on Zoom, Microsoft Teams or Google Classroom, depending on the student' request. Inquiry Based Learning which I have adopted as a teaching method; it enables me to teach lessons based on inquiry and always keeping the student & teacher dialogue dynamic. I strive to progress depending on the age and level of the student. For this, I aim to explain myself, the way I study and understand my student's expectations and level. After the level has been determined, it is of great importance for me that the student knows the lesson plan and draft as well and adheres to the jointly agreed schedule. I share pdfs and documents that I have prepared before the class and use the books by Pearson, Serway, Nowicki, Sarquis and so on for University & Secondary School Level. For Middle School, I use HMH Science Modules etc. I do emphasize the importance on giving homework/assignment and return as giving ''feedforwards'' for my students. As someone in love with her job, it is my greatest motivation to direct the students to professions they can do with love. In this course, you will be able to learn following contents: Ch 1.

Merlvyn
Chemistry (American Curriculum or Advanced Placement or Pre-IB or IB)
Educational Certificates and Awards Ministry of Education Teaching Scholarship (1998) Graduated from National University of Singapore, Bachelor of Science (2004) Graduated from Nanyang Technological University, Post-Graduate Diploma in Education (2005) College Board - AP Chemistry (2019) College Board - AP Calculus AB (2019) I have taught in an IBDP independent school for 5 years in Singapore, as well as in an American School offering APs for 5 years in Taiwan. I’m certified to teach in both courses. I was an EE supervisor while in the IBDP school for all 5 years. I was also a Chemistry Olympiad coach when I was at that school, as well as a pioneer teacher for an Accelerated Class for Science, which is a talent development program. Teaching was my first job and I love it. Interacting with students is the greatest joy besides helping them to learn and at the same time enjoy learning. I love Mathematical problems because they are like puzzles. Once I have the keys (concepts or relationships), I just have to figure out how to use them. It's almost like an escape room or jigsaw. Once I figure out how the pieces fit, there is the sense of satisfaction of solving it. Mathematics trains us in being resilient, systematic and logical thinkers and at times, our imagination and creativity. Science on the other hand, teaches us about ourselves and the world around us - how we interact with each other, how we interact with the world and how other objects or living things interact with each other. The joy of discovery keeps me going. It's always fun to discover something new. Of course, I love the experiments too. It never ceases to amaze students when they see how chemical reactions create something new, change in color, gases, light and heat, and how these can be useful in everyday life. It also teaches us to be respectful of natural laws and be good stewards of the earth and its resources. Available times: Summer break (June-July) - Weekday full days, weekends Sat (8am - 12pm, 5pm - 10pm) and Sunday (6pm-10pm). School days (Aug - May) - Weekdays (6:30pm - 10pm), weekends Sat (8am - 12pm, 5pm - 10pm) and Sunday (6pm-10pm).

Dr. Pradeepika
professional teacher as private tutor: PYP/ MYP - Science (Improve Grad)
My name is Dr. Pradeepika, Gold medalist and with 6+ years of experience as an assistant professor, faculty development training and school teaching/helping experience to students of various age groups. These years of experience in school support have allowed me to develop a methodology adapted to the needs and profile of the student. I offer support to students, who are struggling to find a way of working that suits them. Extrovert, bubbly, and above all, a lot of humor! I believe that everyone learns in his own way. This is why I do not have a rigid method but adapt to the contrary to the specificities of each student. I evaluate their level, strengths, possible weaknesses, or delays, and I develop my course accordingly. My priority: to restore the student's confidence: things are within everyone's reach when they are well explained! Active teaching methods: I try to involve the student as much as possible, to make him discover what works for him/her so that he can continue his career independently. Finally, I bring specific help when preparing questions or exams in a more difficult subject. My rate includes full tuition (private lessons, the ability to ask questions outside of class time, writing and correcting questions, etc.). The students learn best when they are in a positive and happy environment. By using the methods, I can develop a classroom that is supportive with fun. It is important for students to feel happy and comfortable with me so that they can develop the confidence to speak up and put forward their ideas. I believe every student needs to be challenged regardless of their ability. The more confidence students have, the better their chance is of succeeding.😇 Looking forward to reading from you!.

Maximilien
Mathematics, Sciences (up to rhetoric level)
Math and science lessons can be complicated to tackle, but they are essential until the end of high school in general. I will try to make the lesson the most accessible at the student level. I can take care of all the scientific material (physics, bio and chemistry), as well as the entire mathematics course from primary to the end of secondary for the Belgian program, but even more I can teach you to use software used in the math class such as geogebra, the tabler, etc. Fresh out of my rhetoric year and moving towards scientific university studies, I can help you understand the subject up to the level of rhetoric specializing in math and science. Having already a job that requires interaction with children of all ages, I quickly learned to explain things according to the age of the student.

Tanja

Lovely
Math (including Advanced math and statistics) and Science (including Physics) Class
Each student is unique and has different ways of learning. I take the students level of understanding in consideration and build up upon how he/she might learn quickest and is able to apply them. There are always more than one way of solving math and science problems and I would help the student in using the best way for each of them.
