I am originally from Russia and have been living in the United States since 2015. I have been teaching at Goethe-Institut in New York since the end of 2015, and before that I taught German courses in Hanoi and St. Petersburg.
Since 2016 I’ve been designing and conducting online and in-person professional development courses for university and school teachers of German in North America. At the moment, I also do the onboarding for newly hired teachers at the Goethe-Institut in New York.
For me, one of the main goals of coaching is to identify the teacher’s strong skills and to effectively develop them. I am excited to find and implement powerful solutions for your teaching style and your classes, and to accompany you on your journey to become a better practitioner.
I am open to various learning methods, strategies, and learning audiences and look forward to working with you.
