Hello and Thank you for reading my profile. I was born in Russia and I am a native Russian speaker. I am a professor of Russian. I have degrees in both the English and Russian Languages. Before moving to the US I lived in New Zealand where I have been teaching at the leading University (The University of Auckland). I was teaching Russian Grammar and Oral classes, which included conversational classes and different types of translation from Russian to English and English to Russian. It was a very exciting time when I was able to help my students to reach their goals. Many of them were able to spend their summer holidays in Russia on our educational trip which was organized by the Russian Department. It was my role to prepare students for this trip; therefore conversational classes were very important. Apart from teaching in the Russian Department I also organized many other activities for the students, some which were to organize seminars and events to give them a taste of the Russian Culture through the Continuing Education Department.
I am pleased to say that my teaching effort in both departments had a good response among the students and colleges. I would like to get back to such an interesting and stimulating environment.
