I am a person of the world. Born in Russia, I immigrated to USA in 1989 and have lived in Beijing since 2006. I started my teaching career back in Russia in the mid-eighties and worked as an educator for three years. Then my career turned in the different direction. I returned to my teaching after arriving in China. I have 5 years of hands-on teaching experience at several schools in Beijing: traditional and Montessori class settings with children from 12 month to 5 years old.
I am a resourceful, creative and dedicated teacher with a diverse background in education: BA in Engineering, AS in Science of Electronics, Montessori Teacher Diploma 3-6, and I hold several different certifications and rich life experience.
I was raised in the family of professional artist and art is the hobby of my life. I am experienced in a wide range of arts including; Paint and Pencil; Earth and Polymer Clay Sculpture; Pottery; Wire; Mixed Media; Paper Crafts; Handmade Prints; Jewellery making and much more.
