Parent, Robert Louis, University of Rochester

Hey y’all! My name is Robert and I’m from Houston, the largest city in Texas. Although I was born and raised in Houston I attended boarding school in the New England state of Vermont. I discovered in high school that I had a passion for learning languages and decided to pursue this interest with a major in Russian at the University of Rochester. I’ve studied abroad in Russia twice, both times in St. Petersburg, and deeply enjoyed the time that I spent there. While in St. Petersburg I volunteered to teach at a local English school and realized that, despite having never thought about it before, I really liked teaching. When I’m not reading or studying a foreign language, I enjoy traveling, visiting museums, and embarking on adventures to learn more about other cultures. I love food, and I’m always trying to find good places to eat. One of my favorite things to do is simply relax at a cafe for an hour and chat about life with a friend. I’m very happy to have the opportunity to teach in Vladimir and to get acquainted with the city.
