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've been working as an Account Manager at Beetroot Ukraine for over a year now. In my work, I like communicating with people, constant personal and professional growth, exciting clients and projects, and a continuous sense of challenge. I've always considered IT an innovational field of development and implementation of new solutions. My job is tightly bound to the international market, which allows me to perfect my language skills. I have taught in language schools before. I prefer comprehensive approaches because it adds agility to teaching. I make sure to tailor the methodology to the needs of a group or a student. I focus on improving my English, and I've been recently working on a personal project.

The course passed easily and free of hassle. The teacher always supported us and answered any questions we had, even those which weren't really planned for the course. Our Regional Coordinator cheered us up and never allowed us to give up. I would definitely recommend Beetroot Academy to my friends and acquaintances.
