Based on my own experiences, I believe that we can instil a love of all things Russian in our children, which they will benefit from all their lives.

Having started working life in higher education (I have a PhD in Art History), I subsequently had many different jobs before arriving at the Russian School in Cambridge to teach literature to 11-16 year olds in 2011. I enjoyed this very much, especially the challenge of overcoming the lack of cultural and linguistic background of some of our students.
