I am not a school, so I am not all about profit. I am an individual, a teacher, a teacher who specialises in working with Russian English learners, a native speaker from England who genuinely wants to help. You don't need to deal with a school or online school where you have to speak to this person about this and that person about that, you only speak to me directly, which makes life a lot easier. If you are interested in Skype English lessons or Zoom English classes, then please get in touch, I hope to speak to you soon.
