I'm a holder of Master's Degree in Linguistics obtained from Kharkov National University. Besides, I've taken extra courses in Spanish. I speak the following languages English, German, Spanish, Russian and Ukrainian. I've been working as a private tutor and language instructor for over 10 years. I try to develop new approaches in teaching foreign languages. Besides being a language "junkie", I'm very passionate about translation and interpretation. My specific field of interest is literature. I've been studying the Russian and foreign literature for all my life and it always gives me a lot of inspiration in everything I do.
