Front-End & WordPress Teacher and Author

I’m a freelancer. I love to manage my own time the way I want. In one week I can hold lessons in  Beetroot Academy Poltava, then go to a conference in Kyiv and then be at a workshop in Lviv.   Front-End is a field under constant development. Non-standard tasks force me to strive to bigger things and check my own strength.   In my lessons I explain how it works. I keep a friendly and funny atmosphere. Each new group asks me about something I never thought about. So, teaching is a development for me.   I relax at loud parties and by playing video games.

Advanced JavaScript Author & Teacher, Front-End Teacher

IT is constantly moving to new knowledge and technologies in the search for  an optimum solution. I work on projects systematically but in teaching I need creativity. I do not allow any fooling around in my lessons, but it's normal to joke and ask questions.   I praise my students for the right decisions. And mistakes help them learn. I love the saying that small strokes fell great oaks.

Students says:

After graduation, I took part in design competitions. In Betlab I was among the three best juniors. In Cogniance I’ve become one of the five best creative juniors in the Design Challenge 2018 mobile app development competition.

Talan Viktoriya, Kyiv

Everything I learned was useful in my job. Since the very beginning of the courses, I’ve made nearly 20 websites layouts. I was retouching photos, making vector illustrations, logos. Also, there are great parties in the Academy. I still communicate with my groupmates. And here I found my love.

Aristarkhova Ekaterina, Poltava, Designer AIT Inc

I remember many things: the informal atmosphere, comfortable location of the tables, interesting approach of the teacher.

Doroshenko Ivan, Mykolaiv, Freelancer

Academy is neither a university nor a school. Nobody forces you to learn here. You do everything by yourself when it's comfortable. I’ve got a portfolio — worked in 4 projects and implemented the functionalities for two of them from scratch. As a result, I’ve found a job thanks to Beetroot Academy/

Safronov Ruslan, Kramatorsk, Developer WebWorks

I knew that It's hard. But our awesome teacher helped us to survive with a smile. It was love from the first lesson and an unforgettable relationship for all 4 months. The knowledge I got was crucial for my job. I become more self-confident and saw a field with endless development open up for me.
