My name is Svitlana Poliezhaieva and I am an English teacher. I am obsessed with my job. I have got IELTS General Advanced level (2019). I am now studying to become a TESOL certified English teacher. My tutoring experience is 13 years, I have been working online since January 2019.
I blog on my site plzv.pro in three languages – English, Russian, Ukrainian. I write about the benefits of learning English, family time-management and self-development.
In English, I am a practitioner. I always ask myself the question: “Where and how can this topic be used?” And only then I will teach it to students. You will not find philological terms in my posts and video lessons, because I am not a philologist by education.
I have got 2 higher educations – economics and law. I am very involved in the whole process of working online in general, not only in teaching.
This does not mean that I am not learning to teach other people. On the contrary, I study a lot continuously. Books, trainings, conferences, online courses. I constantly improve my lessons.
I have got extensive experience in academic English writing. I have developed an online project in this area, but over the past 5 years I wrote so much that I had a creative crisis eventually. I know that I am writing cool, and people are grateful, but now I am only counseling in this area, I don't write academic texts any more.
I love psychology and family time management, because just recently they helped me organize myself, my family and my work. The order in my head, family and work, step by step, was given to me by hard efforts, and I really appreciate it. I saw that I could not cope with 2 children without order and discipline.
I inspire my students to learn English and encourage them to develop their skills! Hope to be useful for you as well:)
