In addition to working as an academic, I am Chief Editor - English - of a series of English-language textbooks and manuals for education ministries in Kiev, Ukraine.
I am here mainly to teach English to native Ukrainian and/or Russian speakers of Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, and other former Soviet republics. I am also interested in learning about residential opportunities in Ukraine, especially in the vicinity of Odessa and Kiev, but also the Lviv region.
Also glad to assist others, especially the French, improve their English.

Note: While I mostly assist native Eastern Slavs (Belarus, Russian and Ukrainian) to improve their English, I am also open to assisting French nationals with improving their English -language skills as I live in their fine country and feel I should contribute something of value to its people.
