I am a certified Teacher of English as a Second or Foreign Language. I graduated from Zhytomyr State Ivan Franko University in 2000 majoring in teaching English as a Foreign Language.
In 2012 I graduated from International Teacher’s Training Organization (ITTO) obtaining the Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate. And a half year later I received the certificate of Teaching Business English from ITTO.
I have been teaching online for over three years now, and I really enjoy communicating with students from all over the world. I love teaching grammar as well as the spoken language.
My minor at University was translating and interpreting. After graduation I worked as an interpreter for American couples who came for adoption in Ukraine. I interpreted for them during court hearings, meetings with officials, at orphanages etc. This experience has given me a lot for developing my professional skills as well as for personal growth.
I also worked as a translator/interpreter in several dating agencies in my town, a freelance translator in several translating agencies, a teacher of English at the Zhytomyr Branch of Kyiv State Foreign Language Courses, a teacher of English at Montessori Early Education Center.
