Hello, my name is Raymond Clarke, I am from Torquay in the UK. I hold a Bachelor in Business Administration from the University of Applied Science, a semester course of group management and motivational speaker from the Catholic University of Chile, a CELTA and a two-year course on the psychology of teaching from UDLA University.
My professional life as an ELS teacher, began in Germany in 2007 (until 2011), and then continued in Chile for a few years. Soon after arriving in Moscow with my wife, at the beginning of 2016, I started working as an English, Spanish and Cultural Professor at the Moscow State Social University, as well as in a private kindergarten - where I have had the opportunity to teach English to children (from ages 3.5) -. This has been enriching to my career experience and has helped me realize that although children are the most challenging of students, they are also the most rewarding emotionally.
My pastimes are to travel and mix with locals. I enjoy nature, am extremely fond of out-door activities (especially sport-related ones), like reading a wide range of articles and books, enjoy cooking, love animals and to spend time with my family and friends!
