Natasha grew up surrounded by mathematicians and teachers. Her family moved to New Jersey from Moscow, Russia when she was 3 years old. As a child, Natasha’s weekends were often spent solving math problems with her grandfather. Throughout high school and college she continued to develop her passion for math - she competed in the American Regions Mathematics League on the Lehigh Valley Math Team and also qualified for the American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME) 4 times.
Currently, Natasha is finishing her Bachelor of Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) with a major in Mathematics, a minor in Computer Science, and a concentration in Education. She is looking to start her PhD in fall 2021. She is very active at MIT and has been on the executive board of the Russian Club and the treasurer of the Undergraduate Mathematics Association and is currently President and Treasurer of the Spinning Arts Club. She has also done research at the prestigious and highly competitive MathILy-EST and Duluth Research Experiences for Undergraduates.
Before departing for college, Natasha worked at Golden Key Russian School for three years as an assistant and camp counselor. We are delighted about having her back as a teacher, teaching kids from her Cambridge apartment.
