    Hello, I am a Brazilian journalist with 12 years of experience in broadcasting and audiovisual media.

    English/Russian/Ukrainian Translator/interpreter/TESOL teacher

    Ukraine - Last active: 5 months ago

    Dear all, My name is Olga and I am half- Russian and half-Ukrainian, currently living in Ukraine. Since my childhood I've dreamt to become a teacher so now being 42 I am a graduate of one college and 2 universities and a holder of 3 Pedagogy diplomas majoring in Primary school education, Ukrainian language and literature and theory and practice of translation (English, simultaneous and consecutive). I have been teaching for about 20 years now and still love it and have a lot of grateful students and clients. I am very eager to learn languages, though English is my eternal love, and currently I am studying Czech as I believe a modern person has to learn as much as he can -- learning, absorbing, participating and sharing keeps us going and brings joy to ourselves and people around us. I have my students all over the world now as I helped them to learn English -- I am currently preparing students for IELTS and TOEFL exams-- and find a career in many English-speaking countries. I also love to translate fiction and would be honoured to put my skills at your service.
