Gregory (Gosha) Lubashev

"I am 17 and have over 10 years of Python experience. I have been teaching programming for 7 years. I am also proficient in Java, C, C++, MATLAB/Octave and can hold my own in a number of other languages. I was the first instructor at the Python Club. Today I manage the schedule, classes, curricula, website, registration, and am an instructor as well. In the summers  of 2020 and 2021, I was employed full-time as a software developer for the MITRE Corporation and continued to work for them part-time during the school years. For me, programming is a fascinating process of making something useful out of nothing just by focusing on your ideas and turning them into code. I hope to share the magic of coding with others."

"I am from Canada and have been using Python for around 3 years. I also know Java and PHP. I program our family-run book store's website and use web scraping to keep it up to date. I also love coding for its own sake and hope to be able to share it with others through teaching!"

Danielle Hedvig

"I love programming, electronics, and robotics, and I have been involved in these activities since middle school. I was captain of my VEX robotics team, and now, I am co-captain of the innovation group on my FIRST robotics team. I am currently busy writing python scripts to batch dock compounds for my research on inhibiting the FTO protein. In my spare time, I like to read books, create 3-D art, and play with my dogs. I also enjoy teaching and am happy to have the opportunity to share my love for programming with others."

Oxana Litvine

"I graduated in 1993 with a degree in Human and Animal Physiology from the Biology Department of Moscow State University, Moscow, Russia. I then went to graduate school at the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences (P.K. Anokhin Institute of Normal Physiology) where I studied neuroscience and wrote a thesis devoted to mechanisms of memory reconsolidation, leading me to graduate with a PhD in biology in 1999. I went on to work as a research scientist in 1999-2007 in Russia, in Switzerland, and in the USA, mainly in the field of behavioral neuroscience. In 2008 I changed my career path and became a teacher in a private high school in New York, where I taught Biology, Chemistry, and sometimes Physics. As of today, I am an experienced science teacher, certified to teach Biology and Chemistry in two international programs – IB and IGCSE, and I currently teach AP Biology, Anatomy & Physiology and Biology for freshmen in a private catholic school in NYS. I am also an AP Biology reader, and I used to be IB examiner for Environmental Systems and Societies."

Katarina Dobrosky

"I have been programming in Python for 3 years now creating scripts that do anything from solving math problems to analyzing large sets of data. I also have a little experience with JavaScript and HTML. My strong interest in mathematics guided me to computer science, and now here I am! I hope to work in a research field where programming skills will be useful. I hope to share my love of programming with others through teaching here at the Python Club!"
