Personal Description:

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.

Teaching Experience:

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.

Teaching Approach:

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.
