Our Team

Mikhail Mokrinskiy

Principal
Our main goal is to give motivated children access to the highest levels of academic knowledge, opportunities for all-round development and admission to top universities in Russia and abroad. I don’t like the idea of competing with neighbouring schools or the school’s ranking, district-wise. You should learn from your neighbours, what you should fight for is your own dream

Madlena Shaginyan

Head of Academics
What makes the education at Letovo unique is the fact that we develop skills. You may well forget the date of the Mongol invasion, but you will most definitely learn how to work with historical and critical sources of information. And that is what we call ‘skills for life’, which are vital for every person living in the 21st century

Larisa Korabelshikova

IB Coordinator
The International Baccalaureate (IB) is one of the few international programmes whose diploma is accepted by most universities throughout the world. Its educational model is built on the principles of humanistic psychology and is aimed at the holistic development of personality. I am a big proponent of this approach and I see the need to popularize this programme

Dmitry Schnoll’

Mathematics Teacher
Doing mathematics is the experience of deriving enjoyment from overcoming a challenge. What happens during solving a mathematics problem is an important existential experience

Alexey Belov

Physics Teacher
Education (‘obrazovaniye’ in Russian) is derived from the word image (‘obraz’ in Russian), so it is of utmost importance for every teacher to develop and not lose the ability to wonder at the new

Grigoriy Saminskiy

Geography Teacher
The focus of geography is the interactions between humans. The variety of material studied allows students to draw on their own personal experiences, implement team projects and develop systematic thought processes. The main art of the teacher is to create a distinct image of the world and its parts within a student’s mind as well as teach students how to broaden and reconsider this image without assistance’

Alina Korbut

Biology Teacher
We learn to build interdisciplinary connections. Thanks to them, our students will be able to understand that disciplinary boundaries are, in fact, relative, and that everything in nature is interconnected and holistic. The same can be said about human activity which is the subject matter in humanities and social sciences. Subject boundaries exist only in our mind. Nature obeys general laws and each subject just provides a particular perspective and a set of typical or standard ways to observe this process

Konstantin Levushkin

History Teacher
Students are more interested in looking at this or that event from an unusual perspective, through microhistory or everyday life. For instance, 1860-1870s terrorists can be analysed from the point of view of communication’

Vladimir Gurovits

Computer science teacher
Information Technology at school is a tool which gives students a new level of understanding while mastering other subjects. Key achievements in modern life are connected with this tool, among which are computational linguistics, bioinformatics, big data in elementary particle physics and implementing artificial intelligence in medicine

Frances Newbery

Physics teacher
Physics is the key to understanding the world around us. It is more than just a collection of formulas, it is a set of tools we can use to explore, to create, it is an aspiration to discover the unknown.

Irina Lyamsheva

English teacher
The combination of two educational models – those of the Russian and International Baccalaureate – opens up great possibilities for developing students’ abilities and talents, enables their fulfilment, to find themselves and simply their happiness

Vasiliy Gorbachev

English Teacher
Language is a tool for cognition alongside the sense organs, emotions and mind. New language is a new instrument. The greater number of tools like these, the greater the knowledge
