"My favourite teacher was my teacher in accounting, and now he is my teacher in economics too. I didn’t have teachers like him in Moscow. I see he loves teaching. He speaks with students, not as students, but as friends, people his age. It is very easy to communicate with him during the lesson, and out of the lessons also. "
