Hi there! My name is Afrah Noor and I am a Biochemist with a focus in Pharmacology. I recently obtained my MS degree from Drexel University, and am applying to medical schools this year. I love school, but I also love to teach! I taught AP Biology to high school students for 3 years, and worked as a teaching assistant at Florida Atlantic University. When I am not teaching or studying, I enjoy hiking and kayaking through remote areas! Almost every summer, I visit Alaska for its beautiful and vast wilderness. From a very young age, I developed a love for nature. During my early adolescent years, I rescued birds in South Florida. Throughout my undergraduate career, I worked in a Sea Turtle lab to rescue and rehab 3 different species of Sea Turtles. Sea Turtles have an enormous impact on costal reef ecosystems, so it is unfortunate that they are endangered. Increasing the sea turtle population was the overall goal in my lab. I love to teach about conservation and global warming in general, so if you are interested in these topics please let me know! I am passionate about teaching because I believe that knowledge is a powerful tool. I am looking forward to working with you! Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions.

Hello! My name is Chelsea Nowak and I am an English as a New Language teacher in Buffalo, NY. Prior to teaching ENL, I taught middle and high school French. Ever since I was a little girl, I was fascinated with the French language and culture. After a senior class trip to France, I was hooked and knew that I had found my calling. I completed my B.A. in French Adolescence Education at SUNY Brockport and abroad in Avignon, France. In 2011, I was one of fifteen individuals in the United States gifted with a Fulbright Scholarship to teach English in France through the Franco-American Teachers-In-Training Institute. I lived and taught English throughout the Loire Valley in all academic levels. This incredible experience opened my eyes to teaching English and inspired my Master’s work. I completed my Masters in Education in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). During my graduate studies, I spent a month teaching English in Puebla, Mexico. It was one of the most challenging yet rewarding experiences as non-Spanish speaker. And most recently, I spent a summer tutoring English to a French family in Grenoble and traveling throughout Europe with my husband. I absolutely love to travel and experience different ways of life. I truly believe that I wouldn’t be the person I am today if not for the experiences I have had. The teaching and learning of languages is a passion of mine, and I am excited to expand my classroom on an online platform.
Hi, I’m Colleen Akiko. I’ve enjoyed teaching music for a lot of years. I grew up in a musical family, listening to many rehearsals and concerts and imagining colorful stories to go with them. I began studying piano at seven and performed with a symphony orchestra at 17. That’s when I began playing professionally, sharing a variety of flavors of yummy music. Writing songs has been a passion of mine since junior high school. Helping students learn, create and discover the magic of music makes my day!
My name is Cyrus Bry and I am a graduate student and researcher with a focus in astronomy/astrophysics. I have a strong sense of admiration and enthusiasm for space and the cosmos. My professional goals are to earn a PhD and work in an astronomical research laboratory such a SpaceX, NASA or LIGO. These endeavors require the use of physics and mathematics on a regular basis, which I have grown to love, and I am eager to instill this love in younger students.
I live in Orlando, Florida with my lovely wife, our 4 year old son, and our 1 year old cat. I’ve always been very curious, I do research just for fun. I studied physics very seriously, I wanted to understand how math works and how it’s used to visualize things like physics. In college, I simulated the formation of spiral galaxies, like our own Milky Way, with colorful animations that look like hurricanes forming. I love the feeling of helping someone understand something, and helping others discover empowering tools, resources, and confidence to explore further on their own.
