Biography & Interests
My own intellectual interests are varied, ranging from Political Science to Art and Filmography. Through my postgraduate studies and professional experience, I am well-acquainted with the sphere of international law, conflict resolution, NGO-led advocacy, and peacebuilding in both the post-Soviet space and the Middle East. I am an avid traveller, having recently moved to London from Paris, and previously lived in Vienna and Berlin.
Experience & Approach
I have 3 years of mentoring experience at AS, A2 and Undergraduate levels in a variety of subjects. As a postgraduate student, I was a junior mentor to undergraduate politics, philosophy and English Literature students. I have also mentored AS and A2 students in psychology, politics, philosophy and history of art. Currently, considering my fluent command of Russian, and intermediate knowledge of German and French, I am interested in mentoring a younger age group in modern foreign languages. I am dedicated to making my students realise their true potential in academia. Whilst I am a results driven mentor, I consider it important to work beyond the prescribed end goals, instead nurturing minds through a multi-disciplinary approach to learning. Building self-confidence in the young people I work with is key to my teaching approach.
