I started teaching English in Rome Italy in 2004 after trying out different careers in the UK previously (ranging from Sales and marketing to aromatherapist) I started teaching Air Traffic Controllers English for special purposes and I really enjoyed it. After that I moved on to different companies teaching business and general English. I decided to take the CELTA course in 2006 and that lead to better job opportunities in Rome, working with International House and also other companies that specialise in business English. I have done 3 summer schools in London and found them very rewarding. I moved to France from Italy in September and since then I have been working for Berlitz 4 days per week. I continue to enjoy teaching and my interest areas are teacher development, training and building creativity.
I have worked as a teacher of English in the center of foreign languages ÒForward Center" and "British American Tobacco Ukraine" in Kiev. I have had excellent opportunities to teach a variety of English courses during my graduate studies, including first-year writing for second language students, academic writing and English public speaking. I was involved in enormous collaborations at university level. I have a Master's degree in both Political Science and English ("Professional Translations"). I'm graduated in Culture Studies with specialization "Teaching Methodology of Culture Studies". I have an extensive experience of translation and interpretation for various french and foreign companies in different fields such as communication, journalism, international trade. I'm deeply interested in educational work and teaching advancement. TESOL France it's a really great opportunity to share experiences and disseminate teaching ideas, discuss methods and approaches that could make EFL teaching more relevant.
