About Me

#Russian#Hebrew

I am very passionate about my interests. Being neurodivergent helps me understand the struggles my students are experiencing. I would like people know being neurodivergent is not a bad thing because it allows me to empathize with the struggles and understand that there will be some things that some can do and some they cannot do.

Ideal Workplace Values

I do value being surrounded by people who are holistic and human. This is important because there needs to be understanding and empathy within the environment that I am working.


Skills and Strengths

My Neuro-exceptional talent

Being neurodivergent allows me to notice my students struggles before most of my peers and colleagues. I build my lessons in a way that builds up students trust in themselves, because that is something that I desperately needed as a student. I can also help students figure out their strength while being capable to see the differences, because I am and was different myself. I can see individuality and help others see it too. And I also have intense special interests in mathematics, biology and pedagogics, which makes me very educated in terms of teaching maths.
