Together we'll create a custom itinerary for you and your travel companions!
See you in Sochi!
I come from Baku, the beautiful capital of Azerbaijan. Because of the ethnic conflict my family and I had to immigrate to Armenia and then to Russia, in 1991.
I graduated from the Linguistic University in the old Russian city Nizhny Novgorod, and worked as an interpreter at business talks and travel agencies.
Then I moved to Rostov-on-Don, a noisy cosmopolitan city in the south of Russia. I worked as a teacher of English at the University of Economics. I loved my students a lot and wanted them to love English as much as I do. So we started singing popular songs by Elton John, Madonna, Cher, the Beatles etc at our English classes regularly and the attendance in my groups was about 100%. (The students from other groups all wanted to be a part of our "team")
When I got married I moved to Moscow. Theatres, exhibitions, terrific historical sights - Moscow is a great city, very monumental and impressive.
I started teaching English at the University and several companies.
My husband wanted to start a manufacturer, and we moved to a small town in the Rostov region. I was invited to teach at the local University. Then I started a School of English where I used only the cutting edge Oxford and Cambridge material to teach my small and adult students good English.
When our kids were born we decided to move to ecologically safe, ever-green, ever-positive Sochi. We just loved it so much! My students come to visit me too and we learn English on-line now.
At first, I worked only as an interpreter at international meetings and events (Formula 1 press-conference, International Committee on Global Navigation Satellite Systems (ICG) , Fan Fest etc). Sochi is a very busy international venue. Then I was offered to work as a guide with people I interpreted for, foreign and Russian delegations, VIP-guests from all over the world. Now I am a licensed English-speaking guide. I offer both standard and customized tours.
I love making people happy, love to see our guests enjoy wonderful views and panoramas of Sochi. I'd love to share this joy with you, dear travellers!!
