I am a friendly English teacher from Canada. I am a TEFL certified teacher and have been teaching in Moscow for ten years. I have a degree in International Relations from the University of British Columbia. I have experience in teaching English to both adults and children. I make my lessons interesting and entertaining as well as effective, with many substantial results. I focus on the areas my students need to improve and on pronunciation when necessary. As far as methodology is concerned, I base my teaching material mainly on Oxford and Cambridge publications with supplements from newspaper articles, and video clips. My experience with teaching has shown me that every student is different. We all learn in different ways, and I am very happy to work with you to find the best way for you to learn. My interests are opera; drama; literature; figure skating; ballet; modern dance and travel.
