Teaching

Summary

I have been teaching adults, teenagers, and kindergarten kids. Every category of students has its unique aspects that make teaching quite an exciting adventure. I also have experience working with a big group of students as well as individuals.

In 2014 I successfully finished my CELTA course in International house in Wroclaw. Despite the fact that I already had a lot of teaching experience, it was a great opportunity to polish my knowledge and expand the understanding of teaching techniques.

In 2011 I have graduated from Penza State Teaching Training University. I hold a Master degree in Journalism and Russian philology. I am glad that I had an opportunity to be taught by one of the most experienced teachers with USSR schooling background.
