Ms. Chaya Fischer

Chaya Fischer

Academic Writing instructor. Upon completing my BA in Cognitive Science and in English Literature and Linguistics at the Hebrew University, I began researching and experimenting with the bridges between Cognitive Science and Literature. My MA thesis examined the somewhat overlooked world of fictional editors and proofreaders. My fascination with how ideas are transformed into effective and aesthetic written accounts has led me to work with students and academics on improving their academic writing in English. Working through what one would like to say and how to communicate with the minds of others is an art to be practiced and perfected.

Teaching reading, writing and oral skills in a number of academic frameworks has also allowed me to engage extensively in curriculum innovation. Recurring themes in my approach to learning include scaffolding, meta-cognition, and learner autonomy and self-monitoring.
