Nikita graduated from Nizhny Novgorod State University in 2013 where he studied maths and economics. However, languages have always been his passion. He speaks English, Italian and German. He volunteered abroad 9 times, one of them was European Voluntary Service of 9 months in Italy. 2016 Nikita entered "Teach for Russia" programme. Since then he works as an English and Maths teacher at a school of a small town Belousovo in Kaluga Oblast. Remote regional schools hide low motivation and significant student level variations.
