About Alex

I grew up and received my education in three different countries: Russia - a country I was born in and whose cultural mentality and inner contradictions have moulded my perception and understanding of the world in a significant manner, Germany - a country that took me by surprise with how different it was and still is from what I knew of the world and of the people, a country that challenged me with the difficulty of its language, rewarding me in a greater extent for my persistence in trying to master it. Indeed, now it seems to me that German is one the most exact languages that allows so much freedom of expression and word-construction, at the same time being able to charm one with its melody, if one would only let it. Finally, Scotland - turning out to be so different from what I expected, it became the most international of the places I have ever been to. Flavouring my English with accents from France, Ireland, the US, Syria, etc., it kindled my fascination for other cultures, other peoples, other ideas. Such vastness and variety of experiences with different cultural and linguistic traditions complemented my philosophical and literary studies to a great extent. Moreover, it allowed me to practice and exchange my language skills. Additionally, having started my university studies in Germany, I used to tutor high-school students, helping them with to improve their English (both grammar and conversational practice), having thereby acquired some experience and, most importantly, patience. I think I am quite outgoing and easy to talk to, so if you want to give it a try, let’s chat!
