About Me

What a complicated world we are living in! In times like these I bet we all want to make our positive impact. I am not a medical professional whose work is especially valuable now. So... What can I do to make the world a slightly better place? I am a teacher. So, I can teach! If you are stuck at home and you, too, are thinking of doing something useful (like learning a foreign language), then I guess we found each other.
I am a certified teacher of English and Russian, but I am here to spread the knowledge of (and love for) my first language, which is Belarusian. It may seem somewhat useless to you at first. The majority of Belarusians choose to speak Russian in their day-to-day life. However, the Belarusian language will open a whole new world to you. The world of cool music, cheeky modern literature, rich folklore, and great people.
