Tatiana Perel

From over 20 years of teaching children, I have come to realise that all children are wunderkinds (especially if they are bilingual!). They have unlimited abilities, and their enthusiasm and success are contagious, continuously inspiring more exciting and fresh teaching methods.

Education: Samara State University - Philological Department. I have been teaching since 1990 in a university, private language school, and the Russian school in Cambridge. I have written curricula for preparatory and primary schools, and have written scripts for shows performed by children in foreign languages.
