This is my education background: MA in Teaching and Foreign Languages, Herzen State Pedagogical University, St. Petersburg, Russia; PhD, Bryn Mawr College, PA, USA.

What I do outside Star Academy: I hold an appointment as a lecturer in Russian at the Department of German, Russian, and Asian Languages and Literature at Brandeis University. I am also a content advisor for the Massachusetts World Languages Curriculum Framework in 2020-2021 and a judge at the annual Olympiada of Spoken Russian for New England at Harvard University.

Teaching Mantra: “A language is not just words. It’s a culture, a tradition, a unification of a community, a whole history that creates what a community is. It’s all embodied in a language.” (Noam Chomsky)
