Brief Biographical Sketch:

I'm a freshman in Cornell's College of Arts and Sciences, studying Biological Sciences, hoping to pursue a career related to medicine in the future. I'm from Long Island, NY and come from a Russian-speaking family, so I'm really passionate about spreading my love for and for my native language to others. I'm therefore really excited to be teaching this course!
