Tatiana Vinichenko

Tatiana is the founder of Exceptional English and the teacher of English, Finnish, German and Russian as a foreign language. She graduated from Amur State University (English philology) and did her Master's degree at Tallinn University and Erasmus University Rotterdam.

 

Tatiana perfected her teaching skills in St. Petersburg and "polished" her pronunciation the United States (Philadelphia, PA). In Petersburg she also studied Finnish language and confirmed her knowledge of Finnish at Tampere Summer University in Finland.

 

By now, Tatiana already speaks 7 languages and has received a certificate of the level of a native speaker in English (C2). She is convinced that there are no people who are not capable of learning a language if they are motivated enough. Tatiana's classes are energetic, versatile and always accompanied by a good mood.

"It's impossible to find time to learn a language. If you need time, take it!"

And to quote Shakespeare: 

No profit grows where is no pleasure ta'en:
In brief, sir, study what you most affect.



Elena Evtushenko

If you think "I will never learn English! However long I study grammar, I don't understand it anyway", then you will surely understand how the English language works with our highly professional and simply charismatic teacher Elena.

 

Elena has a bachelor's degree in philology based on English and French languages. She also has a diploma of translator/interpreter in the sphere of business communication.

Elena has been teaching both children and adults for many years, including top managers of leading Russian companies.

 

And if you wish to learn from home, you will see that online classes are as effective as live. Elena has been teaching at an online international English school for a long time and knows all the subtleties of distance learning.

"Some teachers say that teaching takes their energy. That's not about me, because my students energize me!"
