I started giving private English lessons when I was still a teenager. I persevered with my English studies and graduated from Kiev National Linguistic University in 2008. Since then I have been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to work abroad and improve my English. I had a brilliant experience of working on a vessel in a multi-cultural environment where the lingua franca was of course, English. Following this I went back to teaching in Kiev and then took a chance of moving to Thailand. In this beautiful country I was blessed with a job teaching both English and Russian.
At present, I am living in the United Kingdom and working as an interpreter/translator in addition to teaching English. As I live in London I am totally immersed in English culture and use my English on a daily basis. I have been told that I have acquired a British English accent which I take as a compliment!
