About Maksym

Hi, my name is Maksym (Max) V. I come from Ukraine and I have recently moved to the States. You would wonder, why is it a person from Ukraine wants to teach Russian? Well, that would be a first lesson: everyone in Ukraine understands and is able to speak Russian. More than that, most of the country actually speaks Russian from childhood, which is why we are all considered as native speakers. Sadly, but it goes back to the old times and is a part of our history.
Nevertheless, everyone in Ukraine understands or is able to speak Ukrainian. It is the official language of the country.
Back home I worked as a simultaneous and consecutive interpreter and translator for 14 years. In addition, I was teaching English at private school, training courses and also as a tutor.

I've spent almost two months in the States, and even though I have been here before, I make wonderful discoveries every day, learning more and more about the local culture, habits, traditions and lifestyle. It is my home now, so I have to blend in and abide by the local rules and customs.

Languages is something that I love the most. I have always thought that when a person knows more than one (the more the better!) languages, his/her horizons are expanding a lot, as it allows understanding people in so many countries with so many different and yet incredible cultures! I am trilingual, and I am currently learning Spanish!

I would be very happy to help you learn and understand the enigmatic Cyrillic characters and unusual sounds, so that you would be able to read, write and communicate, as being bilingual is just a start, who knows, maybe you would discover your own passion to languages, and Russian will be just a first step into the incredible world of multilingual communication!
