About me

Short summary of my educational and professional achievements

Hi! My name is Maksym. I am a teacher of business and legal English. I also teach Russian as a foreign language. I offer both face-to-face and online courses for adult learners. I obtained two degrees (B.A., M.A.) from the University of Manchester. Besides that I earned the Certificate of Educational Studies in the Teaching of English to Speakers of Other Languages, INTESOL WORLDWIDE LTD (Great Britain), and completed the course of International Business English Training (Cert IBET). I successfully passed three modules of Teacher Knowledge Test and Business English Certificate: Higher (Cambridge ESOL Examinations), and am the author of various video courses (English Grammar for Russian-speaking learners, Russian Grammar for English-speaking learners, Effective Presentations and Negotiating in English and other).

My interests lie in the development of blended learning programs, setting and adjusting Learning Management Systems (Moodle, Schoology, Edmodo, etc.), improving school managerial processes with the help of innovative digital technologies, and enhancing online testing / assessment procedures.
