    • I founded Department of Ukrainian and Russian Languages six years ago and now I am its head. I like my job very much. I can speak a lot about my author's program, unique findings in communicative methodology and interesting individual approach in training. But without experiencing it on yourself you'll take it just like empty words. Come and try! See you!

I enjoy the process of teaching because it enriches not only a student but a teacher as well. I love meeting people of different cultures and sharing my experience with them. Seeing my students speaking confident Russian in daily life is the best reward for me!
  • Olga. PhD, teacher of Ukrainian and Russian
    • Hello! My name is Olga. I know how to turn a language study into an interesting work. If you don't like to grind away at grammar and if you don't have time to make any homework but meanwhile you want to speak Russian/Ukrainian, I'll help you. See you soon!
  • Ulya. Teacher of Russian
    • Hello to everyone! My name's Ulya. Teaching is one of my favorite activities in life. I think that a posiibility to combine hobby with work and getting pleasure at the same time is a double reward for every person.
