My name is Ulyana and I'm passionate about teaching and tutoring in creative ways! The important thing for me is that you learn the material as well as experience the joy of learning. I cater the learning to you! For seven years now, I have either tutored or taught in classrooms and in the field for all age groups, sharing the joy of science and math. Most recently I worked for National Geographic Student Expeditions, a program for high school students interested in learning photography, film, and field (outdoor) science. During the springtime, I am a visiting professor at Colorado College, teaching at the undergraduate level. My day job includes running my company, Science in the Wild, which gets kids and adults alike outside, learning and doing science around the world while on expedition.
About Ulyana P.

My name is Ulyana and I'm passionate about teaching and tutoring! I graduated with a B.S. from Rice University (Houston, TX), specializing in earth sciences (geology and chemistry). I did my Masters in planetary geology at Brown University (Providence, RI), and for my PhD, I trekked over 1500 miles in Nepal, studying glacial lake flooding hazards to Sherpa villages, as well as impacts of pollution on pristine high mountains, including Mt. Everest. I have either tutored or taught, in classrooms and in the field, all age groups, sharing the joy of science, math - and learning in general! When I was in my teens, I participated in many science fairs and symposia at the national and international level. Then I went to college and grad school in science. Pretty much, science has been my life! For any of your science needs, with a special focus on astronomy and geology (earth sciences), I'm here to help. I can assist with physics, biology, chemistry and math (algebra, pre-calc, calculus). Given my experience in public speaking, the Microsoft Office suite (Excel, Powerpoint, Word) and writing, I can assist with that as well! If you're interested in creative lessons - with a true focus on your learning experience, I'm your tutor! Often times when working out in the field in extreme locations (e.g., Antarctica and Mt. Everest), I have to MacGyver solutions on the fly. I want to teach you how to think. This skill will serve you well, long into the future.

Perfect lesson! Dr. Ulyana is very nice, patient, and very professional.

Ulyana is a very special young woman. In searching for an online teacher for my Daughter,I felt that "Uly" would be the correct choice. My Daughter has different abilities and therefore different needs as well as understanding. Ulyana has stayed dedicated over the months and my Daughter continues to grow. Uly's skill and understanding levels are excellent, but her strength of character in perseverance and ingenuity are directed toward securing meaningful success. Growth continues to be achieved in small steps with every lesson. I am forever grateful to and for Ulyana. My Daughter is a stronger more capable individual because of Ulyana. GRATEFUL,Tom C.

National Geographic
Expedition leader and teacher for a National Geographic geology and climate "on assignment" high school program in Iceland.
Postdoc (research scientist)
Sep 2015 - Sep 2016
National Snow and Ice Data Center
During this one-year post-doc, I validated satellite-derived albedo (reflectivity) measurements of snow and ice with on-the-ground fieldwork in the Arctic and Himalaya. I also quantified the amount of black carbon and dust concentrations in natural snowpacks, spanning from Alaska, to Colorado, to the Canadian Arctic, to the Himalaya. The presence of these contaminants greatly increases melting of snow and ice.
