Alumni Story - Joshua Schiefelbein '14

I'm currently working as an English language teaching assistant at Gorchakov Memorial School in Pavlovsk, Russia which is located about forty minutes from Saint Petersburg. My main job responsibility is to connect with the students at the school and have them practice their English with me. In addition to this, I help lead lessons when I can as well as help organize different clubs where students can practice their English even more. This includes theatre club, gaming club and preparation for international English exams like PET, TOEFL and IELTS. In my free time, I spend time with my Russian-speaking friends so that way we can practice or English and Russian. I also regularly attend Zenit Saint Petersburg soccer matches and SKA hockey matches with my coworkers.
