About Me
italki teacher since Feb 28, 2019
Interest topicReadingScienceFilms & TV Series
Growing up in a very diverse country cultivated a love for cultures and different languages. A passion to interact with and learn from other cultures inspired me to become a language teacher. I have a background in science/ academia and love talking about these topics, but I am open to anything students would like to discuss and have always felt quite privileged to be able to learn about many curious things through my students. I am currently a PhD candidate in Physiology, thus, when I am not teaching, I am probably hiding away somewhere in a lab. On the weekend I love hiking, cooking, reading or spending time with my husband and dogs.

The conversation with Maryna was wide ranging and interesting under many perspectives. We touched on many topics and the lesson was so interesting that I went well over my comfort zone and forgot the usual fear to make mistakes. It should also be highlighted her patience and kindness.Well done!

The trial lesson was great, Maryna prepared great article and exercises about terms and phrases. She understood and could explain in the simplest way the English grammar.

Maryna is an excellent teacher. She was able to quickly identify my needs and structure the lessons accordingly. It was challenging materials in terms of new words, but easy topics that I could easily relate to - a great way to learn new language.
