My greatest passion is learning and teaching languages, and I have long experience of teaching both English and Russian, in real life and online. I'm a native speaker of Russian and I have been teaching Russian full time online since 2008 through my own registered business.

I graduated from the Moscow University of Culture in 1998. Then I did a teacher training course and got a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certificate. In 1999 I passed the Cambridge Proficiency in English exam (grade A). In 1999 – 2003 I worked as an English teacher in a language school in Moscow (BKC-International House). I also taught Russian to my British colleagues. After having moved to France, I went on to teach English and Russian online. I'm a successful tutor on Verbalplanet.com, Edufire.com and Wiziq.com. I have developped Russian online courses for all levels and have tested them with hundreds of students from all over the world. I also worked as a content developer for Russianpod101 in 2008-2010 creating podcast scripts and grammar and vocabulary content for this website.

I currently live in Valence (France).
