I am a member of IATEFL with TKT Cambridge and TESOL certificates. I set myself the task of acquiring thorough knowledge in my profession. My goal is to help improve cross-cultural communication, using English as a common, international language.
I have participated in international practical-scientific conferences conducted by IATEFL and the British Counsel. My works have been published in the materials of scientific and practical conferences of IATEFL. My areas of interests in teaching the English language are as follows: Group English classes, preparing for tests such as IELTS and TOEFL, preparing students for FCE and PET tests, media, English for specific purposes, language teacher education, language teaching methodology, learner autonomy, innovations in language teaching. I am the author of some thematic essays relating to methods of teaching English, which are included in collections of articles published by international conferences.
