Motivational Psychologist, 4000+ students

Hey, my name is Elmira Strange, and I am Motivational Psychologist and Certified Life Coach. I am passionate about working with students who want to become online instructors and coaches.

My previous work involved Research Psychology and Lecturing at University (UK).

The unusual bit: I was born in Northern Kazakhstan (where it's freezing cold in winter -40C), then moved to Russia, then to the United Kingdom.

The interesting bit: I had a life-saving surgery and near-death experience in 2012. The near-death experience made me realise that we are here to share our knowledge, help each other, and enjoy this life.

My interests: Psychology, Motivation

My previous experience: Whilst I was working at University (Wales, UK) as a Senior Researcher and Psychology Lecturer (prior to Udemy), my focus was on 'Researching Stress in Families of Disabled Children' where I had to learn what makes people stressed and unhappy. 

Since 2006 I am working as an 'online entrepreneur' as well: writing blogs and books, and now 'teaching online' which became my true passion. In my Udemy courses I combine my extensive knowledge of 'online entrepreneurship' and my passion for 'Motivational Psychology and Coaching'.
