Languages, teaching online, photography, exotic quisines, cross-cultural communication, travelling the world... these are my passions in life! I am a simple guy from Southern Russia where I lived most of my life. I am a native Russian speaker and I've always been interested in learning English. I finished a university course in economics, became a manager in a big oil company and really enjoyed my work as the manager of a small team. This job gave me great experience in both good and bad communication and team-building. I really appreciate this experience but at some stage it became clear for me that I had lost my interest in this job and I started looking for new ways of building my future. My wife and I started a small language school. Speaking of my wife and why language school... my wife is Australian and she is a qualified TESOL teacher. This fact and my interest in English language made starting a language school an obvious option. I met my future wife 12 years ago online when I was looking for native English speakers for practicing my speaking and writing skills. We were in touch for many years, met each other both in Russia and overseas and got married last year by the time I started thinking of changing my lifestyle. But that's another story.
I finished a course in Teaching Russian as a Second Language in Moscow State University and now I am a certified Russian teacher. I am not tied to any place anymore because I am teaching online so I'll be off to South-East Asia and Australia with my wife very soon.
As a language learner myself I understand how important it is to have a patient, understanding, supportive and inspiring teacher. No matter what your level is or where you're from you can either start learning Russian from scratch or improve your existing level with me as your teacher. And I will make this process interesting and fun.
