I am a native Russian speaker, Chartered Linguist, full member of Chartered Institute of Linguists (MCIL), with a lot of overseas working experience, currently completing my PhD in Linguistics at the Australian University, USQ. I graduated from the" State Piatigorsk Linguistic University", which is considered one of the best linguistic universities in Russia. My major is "Teaching English as a Second language", and "Applied Psychology'. I learned German as a foreign language at the Goethe-Institute in Germany and acquired B2 Certificate. I am well-travelled around UK, Russia, Germany, France, Italy, Australia, Africa and the Middle East. I have a wide range of interests: sports, travelling, history, literature and classical music.
I have more than 20 years of teaching English as a foreign language. I taught English in Russia, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Oman and Germany. Having lived and worked in a variety of countries, I am culturally-sensitive and understanding to specific clients' needs. I obtained MBA ( International Business) from University of Southern Queensland, Australia and taught Business English to people from a variety of industries: top bankers, lawyers, accountants, marketing executives and hotel managers. As an English instructor in Saudi Arabia, I created a structured program, ran intensive courses, set and moderated exams for professional women. In Oman I was actively involved in the setting up of the new university affiliated with the University of Queensland in Australia, designing language courses for a various age group of students. My recent teaching experience involves preparing specialised materials and conducting an intensive exam preparation course (MODLEB) for military personnel at the Defence Academy, UK.
I have individual approach to each student, based on his expectations and targets in learning. I develop individual topics and work together with the student towards achieving the set targets. Language learning should be fun at the same time, so I make my lessons as exciting as possible, using a lot of up-to -date resources and video materials, stimulating discussions, and interactive communicative grammar. I have developed specific courses for pilots, musicians, medical practitioners, legal and business executives, as well as children's courses.
