I was born in Russia and I currently live in Bulgaria (my mother is Russian and Ukrainian and my father is Bulgarian). I have also travelled to many different countries and lived for 1 year in Japan.
I love teaching people from different countries and backgrounds and helping you improve your communication with friends, extended family, colleagues and business partners.
I have an MA in Applied linguistics - English and Japanese and I have been a teacher for more than 12 years teaching English, Japanese and my native languages - Bulgarian and Russian. I have also specialised in the Tokyo University of Foreign Studies.
I have worked using the communicative and direct methods of teaching as well as different other techniques.

As a complete beginner, I’m learning so fast and so much with Elena sensei 😊
20 ブルガリア語 レッスン
Елена has been amazing as usual. I’ve had 4 lessons with her and she gives me homework after each lesson to reinforce the learnings. As I am still building my vocabularies, she has been incredibly patient. I look forward to more lessons with her!

Very nice lesson - we talked about Russian food, practiced a dialogue, then tackled some verb conjugations. Elena is always really sweet, patient and polite, and keeps the lesson focused and on track with plenty of explanation.
