My name is Mr.Karim but kids call me Kimo! Native speaker/ leading teacher of Discovery smolniy franchise. I’m a laid back guy, who enjoyes meeting new people, coffee, baking and cooking as well learning new things (projects, languages, interior designing , singing and dancing ).
I have come to Russia since 2015 , studied and received my master degree at (LETI) University and now I’m on the verge of finishing my PhD program, in information technology of projects and products managements. I have lived in USA California for a year an half , my family are living between USA/Russia/Syria and I’m fluent in English, Arabic and C1 French and would say A2 speaking and B2 understanding in Russian. I have been working as a teacher of English ( age of 4 till 60 years old ) to students for 8 years, 5 of them are in Russia and I have a toefl certificate as a native speaker level C2. I enjoy working with kids , since I was in USA, my niece had been to a kindergarten and at that moment, I was hands on her education and how they process things there. I had gained alot of knowledge from them which to this day helped me through.
Also I have written 3 programs In English as a methodologist at my previous jobs levels ( intermediate, upper intermediate, advanced) and helped with writing an elementary book . Now I’m a native speaker of Discovery where I teach my own preschool group and lead my team of teachers, help assist, train and grow their levels. Also held training for Cambridge exam ( starter, mover, flyers). As well as I’m going after a methodologist spot at Discovery.
Working with kids had been a life changing event, for me, when growing, you start appreciating all the small details in life and your life!, kids have weighed in on that. It makes me happy knowing I’m contributing something that will follow them through their journey.
