Irina Kravchuk

Born in Kiev, USSR now Ukraine. I graduated from Kiev State University (Master’s degree in radio physics) and began my career working in several scientific research institutes. Then I applied my knowledge and experience in teaching and developing original curricula, learning materials, and activities for math and logic courses. The math course was developed to give the students a strong background and promote specifically their thinking abilities rather than make them memorize and follow given algorithms.

The logic program, in its turn, promotes creative thinking and offers knowledge expected from a standard formal logic course. However, it is presented in an easy to access and entertaining form that includes various exercises, problems and brainteasers. I strongly believe in advantages of early learning and developed an easy reading program for young children to help them become active readers. I’ve been living in Canada for about 12 years and working for the school system since 2008. Other areas of interests: art history, poetry, astronomy, pottery, traveling and many other things that bring joy to my life.
