If you are looking for somebody with a great command of the English and Russian languages, then you've stumbled upon the right profile. In 2009, I graduated from the Omsk State University (Russia) with a professional degree in Teaching English as a second language specializing in American accent training and minoring in translations in Russian-English-German. Though I am fluent in Russian and English, German is the language I can perfectly translate from, but do not translate into since I am not at near-native-like level in my German output. Shortly after graduation, I moved to the USA where I work on various projects in translation along with teaching English as a second language to immigrants. I can accept projects related to translation and proofreading in the above-mentioned languages as well as improving English and Russian skills and writing SEO optimized articles. I am currently enrolled in TESOL MA program and lovin' it so far!!!
