Teacher of Economics


  • BA and MA in Physics, Russian-Armenian University, Yerevan, Armenia
  • MA in Economics, International school of economics at TSU (ISET), Tbilisi, Georgia

My career in economics has started after switching my path of education from physics to economics. And I have to say that I don’t regret that step (at least yet!). Before joining UWCD I taught at university level at American University of Armenia. But an IB course needs a different approach of teaching and it’s a sort of a new challenge that motivates me to move forward to achieve new goals.

What is your favourite part of the teaching process?
To link a theoretical part of economics with the practical and working at the Central Bank of Armenia helps me in this, as it gives me an opportunity to be familiar with the real-life examples.

Which teaching method do you prefer and why? 
I like to see when students are engaged in a lesson and are interested in a subject.

Who is your role model or mentor or who inspires you?
My Grandmother.

What is your life motto?
Brevity is the soul of wit.

What are the three things you can't imagine your life without?
Family. Humor. Candies.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
Listening to music, discovering new places, meeting with friends, and sometimes doing nothing.
