I am a native Russian, with a Masters Degree from one of the best universities in Kiev, Ukraine. I have a graduate linguistics degree and have taught both Russian and English extensively on different levels. I also have experience in teaching Russian history and culture. My experience ranges from preparing students for university exams to teaching diplomats and business-people who traveled to Russia and Ukraine. I love to teach and have an ability to explain difficult grammatical concepts in a simple and user-friendly way.

I have graduated from high school in Kiev (Ukraine) where we learned cursive writing for three years. We have used special copybooks and special drills for that. After high school I have graduated with masters degree form Kiev State University. My degree is in Germanic philology and applied linguistics. I have taught Russian and English for 20+ years and when we taught elementary Russian or English writing in Ukraine we had to teach cursive writing as it is still widely used there. That is why I have a lot of relevant experience.
