Luckily, my hobby (the English language) has become my career, so, teaching English has always been a pleasant chore for me. All my classes are tailor-made according to the students' requirements and abilities, using original course books, audio, and video materials. Together, we are usually able to make good progress to our mutual satisfaction.
Although there are not many things or places I could describe saying “been there, done that”, I‘ve got some cherished memories of the UK seaside, the Harz Mountains, and the Black sea.
Personally, I like reading, doing sports, and having a good laugh in a pleasant company.
I'm an English tutor with a Master's degree from a teachers' training university, a Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English and more than 30-year experience in teaching it to university students as well as grade- and high-schoolers. I graduated from Drohobych Ivan Franko Teachers' Training University in 1990, receiving a diploma with honors. I worked there as a professor of English for eight years. Until 2002, I had been teaching at the Truskavets English courses. Now, Im self-employed and blissful.
I believe in flexibility of the educational approach. As a teacher, I’m very adaptable in terms of the teaching methods I use, although my personal favorite is discussion as it presupposes a two-way flow of thought. Commonly, I leave the topic choice to my students. It ranges, therefore, from politics to lifestyle, psychological, sociological, or environmental issues: to master a language, one has to use it as a research tool to discover new information rather than practising it out of context.
About my cancellation policy. Students who are 20 minutes late for class without giving any notice will have to confirm it as taken.

I would definitely recommend Anna for exam preparation as well as for general English classes. She is a wonderful teacher who is open to new learning formats and has many different studying materials, which makes classes with her varied and interesting.
