English for IT Course Author

Language is immensely mysterious. It grows, it changes, and it shapes societies. My family has many teachers, linguists, and philologists, the passion for languages came early on. To me, teaching is one of the most meaningful things I can do to inspire change around me. It’s also amazing how instrumental certain languages are in improving an individual’s and a community’s wellbeing. Teaching should definitely become more altruistic. Drifting away from a life-long fixation on grades will have nothing but a positive impact on students. Whenever the course allows it, I get rid of any grading system and focus on each students’ individual issues. I currently run a small content agency, which allows me to work with a host of amazing people from all over the world. Besides that, I’m a part-time digital nomad and meditator.

I work in the language school, White Collar. My passion for English started as a hobby. Now it's my job. The main secret is to love what you do.

The lessons were natural, clear and constructive. There was a lot of practice. And then was a meeting with employers and I was very proud of my project presentation.

After graduation, I took part in design competitions. In Betlab I was among the three best juniors. In Cogniance I’ve become one of the five best creative juniors in the Design Challenge 2018 mobile app development competition.

Talan Viktoriya, Kyiv

Everything I learned was useful in my job. Since the very beginning of the courses, I’ve made nearly 20 websites layouts. I was retouching photos, making vector illustrations, logos. Also, there are great parties in the Academy. I still communicate with my groupmates. And here I found my love.

Aristarkhova Ekaterina, Poltava, Designer AIT Inc

Things were comfortable and cozy at the lessons. After graduating, I got 3 projects for my portfolio. The 4th one was a test task for a studio. They hired me without an interview. I believed in myself because of Beetroot Academy.
