I was born and raised in Russia. After obtaining my Bachelor's degree, I moved to China to pursue my Master's. I lived there for more than four years. Chinese and English languages have become a guide for me into the universe of amazing cultures and people. Travelling, living, and studying abroad have allowed me to feel like a part of the global community, participate in unique events and make friends from different parts of the world.

During my teaching career, I have been involved in various educational projects, working as a primary and secondary school teacher. I have organised and coordinated school trips for students from different countries, helping them adapt to studying and living abroad.

What is the favourite part of the course you teach?
My favourite part is witnessing the growth, enthusiasm and unique perspectives of the students.

Which teaching method do you prefer and why? 
Learning through working together. Building a safe, supportive and inclusive environment where everyone feels comfortable expressing their thoughts and ideas.

Who is your role model or mentor or who inspires you?
The students inspire me every day. They motivate me to be a better person.

What is your life motto?
"Don't do unto others what you don't want done unto you." ― Confucius

What are the three things you can't imagine your life without?
My family, foreign languages and travelling.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
Travelling, spending time with my family and friends, eating, walking, running, reading, sleeping, cooking, listening to music and watching movies.
