About me

I have been teaching English for more than 15 years and I absolutely love it! Being a passionate language learner myself, I know very well the difficulties students have to face while practicing a new language and the ways to overcome them. During my teaching career I’ve helped a lot of people to change their life, to reach their goals, to get promoted, to pass exams and get enrolled to a foreign university, to travel or relocate to another country. Knowing foreign language opens up new opportunities for everyone, and I am happy to play my role in this creative process!
