I’ve been working with children since 1998. I started my career in children’s health camps – I was working as a photographer, radio operator, DJ and a tutor. My experience includes working in Moscow, Vladimir, Tula, and Kaluga region camps.
Several years later, in 2003, I started to participate in educational and health programs for children and adults, then decided to take “Workshops for young geniuses” courses. After finishing it I was ready to teach clubs by myself. I started to organize trips with children and their parents in Russia (Karelia, Chuvashia, Udmurtia, Bashkiria, Perm region) and abroad (Kazakhstan, Latvia, Turkey, Tunisia, Italy, Spain, Bulgaria, Montenegro, and even Argentina).
In 2005 I made a colloboration with Y. Kuklachev: we began to develop and implement his program “School of kindness”. At the moment, we are working on an extended version of the program for primary school teachers. In 2015-2019, we collaborated with the Central Palace of pioneers in Moscow and conducted the program for children of different ages. We also organized the “Festival of kindness”.
Since 2018, I have been supporting primary school children in English Playschool Moscow.
My teaching principles are:
– to take a positive approach;
– to believe in every kid’s uniqueness;
– to supplant kid’s endeavours.
