My name is Vera, and I was born and raised in Minsk, Belarus.
I studied in a class with a focus in Math, graduated at the top of a 300-class from Belarus State University (majoring in Russian Language and Literature), continued my education on a full scholarship at Manchester University/Moscow School of Social and Economic Sciences (majoring in Political Sociology).
In 2009, I was awarded Master of Arts degree in Sociology with distinction.
I have also been a debater since 2001, and I have taught debates and public speaking, both in English and Russian, since 2005. I won several national and international competitions in Belarus, Poland, and Lithuania. I received formal training on advanced argumentation and teaching debates at Duino Institute, Italy, in July of 2007.
I've been tutoring Russian and English as a Second Language (Grammar and Speaking) since 2004.
I always try to make my classes engaging and fun experience for my students.
