About Elena

I am a native speaker of Russian, I grew up in Moscow. I taught English and French in schools and at college level. I left Moscow 18 years ago and moved to London with my American husband. I lived for five years there. During that time I studied foreign language instruction at Richmond College and received an Oxford-Cambridge Certificate in teaching foreign languages to adults.

I moved to the USA in 2004. Since that time, I lived in New York City with my husband and our three children. I taught children 4-6 in a bilingual English-Russian day care. After getting a New State Teacher License, I worked as a substitute teacher in different public schools. I also taught Russian on Sundays to children from Russian-speaking families. When our own children grew up and left home, we moved again, first to Asheville, NC, and then to Savannah, GA. In recent years, i self-published two books of American poetry translated into Russian, one book of biblical translations, and one book of my own poetry. I love my Russian heritage and sharing my knowledge of Russian and Russian culture with others. I am fluent in English and French.

I have an BA and MA degree in teaching foreign languages from Moscow State Pedagogical University. I have a Certificate in teaching Russian from Pushkin Russian Language Institute, Moscow. I also have a Certificate in teaching foreign languages to adults, Richmond College, London.
