I believe that the main purpose of a teacher is to teach children to learn. ISM is where I first began teaching GCSE and A-Level Russian. I am also experienced in teaching Russian as a foreign language for the International Baccalaureate programme.  

I have many hobbies; I like to knit, make dolls, go hiking and write poetry. However, the main thing in my life is my family and my work.
