Biography Zaza

Hi everyone,
My name is Tatiana Kosteneva- Hancock, and I would like to invite you to study English with me.
I’ve been teaching with Za Za school for more than 4 years now.
A few words about my background and my teaching experience. I’ve been teaching for more than 30 years now. To start with, I graduated from Almaty University of Foreign languages and translation and started teaching as a secondary school teacher. But that was ages ago.
Since then I have taught conversational English for the Engineering staff of the Power Nuclear Plant in Ukraine, have worked with teens for several years as an English Club teacher and Program Director of the International camp Sunshine in the Altai Mountains.
After moving to Saint Petersburg, I worked for School Skillset, teaching groups of adults. When in Europe, I lived in Portugal, where I taught English mostly individually for expats from Russia and Ukraine. It was then, when I started collaborating with the school English-Natali. I have been teaching Business English( General Business), Conversational English and English For the Russian State Exams for 9-11 grades of Russian Schools.
As for my teaching methods, I can say that I make all my programs tailored for each and every student, so they are aligned with their individual needs. I think I’m a good communicator and can find a way with different people.
I’ve got a TEFL certificate from i-to-i , Los Angeles, Loyola Marymount University in 2010. Along with textbooks I pick teaching material from different sources, if I find them useful and up- to-date, so my toolkit is full of various fun techniques.
I do love my job, and hope to share everything I know with my students.
So guys, you’re very welcome!
