I hold over 14 years of experience in teaching English to students of different levels from elementary to advanced. Prior to starting my teaching career, I had graduated from Voronezh State Pedagogical University as a teacher of English and French. And I had also completed my Candidate degree of Pedagogic Sciences, with a major in teaching English. My main strength is that I am really passionate about teaching. I do my best to keep on top of my field, reading sources, inside and outside of my area of expertise. I believe that effective teaching is about listening, being responsive, and remembering that each student and class is different. For me, great teaching is about the former student who says that my course was the best one he/she has ever taken. I truly enjoy what I do and cannot imagine doing anything else.
