My educational background includes a pedagogical school and a highly rated state university in Russia. This allows me to combine the possession of teaching methods with the knowledge of a subject and the way of thinking which are required for researchers. I worked at a middle and a high school teaching history and social studies. Now I am teaching Russian history and literature to Russian speaking children. Other very important part of my experience is helping and tutoring my own children. The level of my education (including not only formal education, but also self-education) allows me to help my older son, who is a senior now, with most subjects.
