My international background is highly diverse. I am eager to fulfill my desire to be a valuable asset to a global community. While obtaining my Bachelor and Master degrees I have traveled to eleven countries including many European countries, China, and all across the United States. All this helped me to develop a profound understanding of various cultures and gain a priceless experience in communicating with internationals. I value, understand and respect people of different cultures.
My previous Bachelor’s Degree in Economics and Management made an emphasis on management and administration, and has allowed me to develop strong leadership and management skills. I believe that accountability and responsibility are crucial for being a strong leader. In a team setting, I am ready to take responsibility and initiative, and make high-level decisions, as well as being a contributing team player. During my position in the Office of International programs at Arkansas State University I have designed and implemented numerous events and programs for the international population of more than one thousand students. In addition, I coordinated groups of students, improved my cross-cultural competency skills, learned immigration and international laws and policies relating to international education at a higher education institution.
In addition, I have demonstrated a desire to help others in their educational endeavors through serving the international population at Arkansas State University and hours of tutoring students in the English language back in Russia. Being a former international student also gives me a great advantage of knowing the international student life and needs from the inside.
I am highly responsible, persistent, and I have a great passion for working with international students. My work experiences helped me to developed excellent customer service skills. I believe I have a proper personality for being a tutor. I enjoy communicating with people, being kind and polite. Along with my reliability and responsibility, these qualities create my strongest asset. My previous experiences helped me to learn how to work on multiple tasks quickly and efficiently.
