Teaching Experience: I have taught/tutored English as a Second/Foreign Language for several years. I taught English in western Ukraine for 2 years and have been tutoring high school students in English, reading comprehension, and writing for the past 5 years.
Interests: I enjoy reading, eating, hiking, traveling, Netflix, swimming, and spending time with friends.
I am a huge fan of Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and almost anything else in the fantasy genre (though, I'm waiting for George R.R. Martin to finish writing book 7 before I read/watch the series, so let's keep the Game of Thrones spoilers to a minimum). I like Sherlock (both the Conan Doyle and BBC/Cumberbatch versions) and funny t.v. shows like Arrested Development, Parks and Recreation, and The Mindy Project.
I'm currently living in Scotland (which is absolutely stunning), so I spend a lot of time walking on the beach and taking day trips to local hiking spots.
Education: I studied English, history, and Classics (ancient Latin and Greek language and culture) as an undergraduate and am currently working on my masters degree in Celtic and Anglo-Saxon Studies.
Spoken Languages: English (Native), Ukrainian (Conversational), Russian (Basic), Spanish (Basic)
