  • SchoolPlus Virtual Classes are Coming this Summer 2019!
    Summer classes are a chance to review and solidify what students did during the year, so children are ready for the fall. Summer classes are a chance to enjoy learning without the school load pressure and learn subjects and topics outside the usual school curriculum.

I graduated from Faculty of Mathematics and Mechanics, Saint Petersburg State University, Russia in 1997. I have been working for 8 years in two specialized Math Schools in Saint Petersburg, Russia. I taught Advanced Algebra, Pre-Calculus, and Geometry courses. I always tried to involve my middle-schoolers and high-schoolers in diverse extra curriculum activities. We studied additional topics in Mathematics such as Theory of Sets and Theory of Graphs, solved Olympiad problems, and participated in various math Olympiads in Russia. Many of my students were awarded.

Since 2012 I have been working at the SchoolPlus on Manhattan teaching students from 2nd to 6th grades. My students participate in Math Olympiad for Elementary and Middle School (MOEMS). Last academic year for the first time in the SchoolPlus history we conducted Math Olympiad (“Young Hawks») for 1st-3rd graders and I am the author of its content and one of the organizers of the competition.

I consider Mathematic lessons to be a great tool of critical thinking and learning. This approach works for everybody, but specifically helpful for younger children who are open to new concepts and ideas. My goal is not only to introduce basic mathematical skills but also to create children’s interest in complicate but fascinating such field of knowledge as Mathematics is.
