About me

I joined LSE in 2017 and prior to that I taught Russian at King’s College in London as well as various private schools. I have a degree in teaching foreign languages from a Russian university and studied linguistics at the Linguistic University in Belarus.

I hold various postgraduate interpreting qualifications and specialise in legal translation. I am a member of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting and have a vast experience in interpreting and translation for arbitration, civil and criminal courts.

I am interested in educational methodology, cultural awareness and intercultural values and communication.

About the Language Centre

LSE is a centre for the study of the social sciences and this is reflected in its Language Centre.

Our courses focus on language and society, encouraging you to learn how to use language in the contexts you would like to live, study and work in. We teach people to speak languages, but also teach about language (socio-linguistics and intercultural communication) and offer a range of courses on literature and society. 

We offer English for Academic Purposes programmes, BSc programmes a range of undergraduate degree courses that can be taken as part of a degree and a range of language options that can be taken outside of a degree programme. All programmes and courses relate language study and support to the fields of interest of social science students.

The Language Centre is part of LSE’s Academic and Professional Development Division.
