About Me

I am originally a university teacher, trying to make sure you don't hear that funny Яussian akksent that often 😂 Which means I try to teach English to somewhat reluctant Engineering majors and (usually) eager Linguistics majors.
However, being an eternal student myself, I am now studying for a Master degree in Finland. One year in University of Turku done, one more to go 😃
Currently I am in Moscow, home for holidays and staying until September, then moving back to Finland for the start of the autumn term.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I majored in languages and I study abroad, which makes me a very international-minded 😃 New friends are always great, wherever they come from, plus language practice and the feeling that you are helping someone and having fun at the same time - worth it, I guess 😃

Music, Movies, and Books

Tough question.
What concerns music, I've been into metal, then folk, then rock, now I'm mostly into good music regardless of genre.
Same with movies - I like a good movie, be it a drama or a superhero action one. Perhaps only horror and reeeeally deep art-house movies are not really for me.
Books... Well, I used to do literature research, so I do read a lot 😃 Contemporary English and American novels are probably my favorites, but I also love variety - from classics to graphic novels.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Does moving from a place you've lived and loved for all your life, to a place you've never been to, count?.. 😄

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm a teacher of English and French, so language exchange is most welcome :)
I am also looking for someone to speak Finnish to, because I'm becoming really desperate about it 😓
