About RSM-Reston:

RSM-Reston is the first branch of the Russian School of Mathematics in Virginia. The school opened in 2016, serving the surrounding communities of Reston, Arlington, Centreville, Chantilly, Fairfax, Falls Church, Great Falls, Herndon, Leesburg, Mclean, Oakton, Oakhill, Springfield, Sterling, Tysons Corner, and Vienna. Our mission is to use RSM’s well-structured teaching strategy to help students build a solid math foundation and develop lifelong critical thinking skills. Our classroom-based approach is an alternative to math tutoring that creates lasting results for students and parents.

At RSM-Reston, we believe that a quality mathematics education is one of the most powerful tools you can provide a child. We view the widespread aversion to math in the U.S. as a major problem. We strive to create a counter culture that embraces math as both exciting and useful. RSM is not just designed for students who intend to study math in college. It is designed to help widen opportunities in all fields by enhancing logic and critical thinking skills, developing math-specific abilities, and fostering a deep appreciation for the subject.

About the Principal

Viktoriya Palamarchuk, Principal

Viktoriya Palamarchuk

Education:  M.S. in Mathematics and Computer Science, Karazin Kharkiv National University, Ukraine

 After graduating with honors specializing in advanced math, Viktoriya studied Mathematics and Computer Science at Karazin Kharkiv National University in Ukraine.  In 1999, she immigrated to the United States and started a family with her husband.  Now, they have four sons, all of whom are proud RSM students.

First as a mom and then as an RSM teacher, Viktoriya witnessed first-hand the success of the RSM approach.  Developing logical skills and critical thinking instead of relying on memorization achieves better long-term results, she has found, by building a powerful lifelong foundation for students.  Not only has she watched the program help increase the self-esteem and confidence in her students, but she has also observed how the supportive and nurturing RSM environment prepares children beyond school and well into the real world.

Viktoriya has been the Vice Principal of RSM-Winchester in Massachusetts since the branch opened in 2013.  She has helped the Principal build and run the school.  When the opportunity to relocate to Virginia presented itself, Viktoriya accepted it without hesitation.  She is very excited to open the first RSM branch in Virginia and share her passion for mathematics with students from Reston and the surrounding area.
