I completed my PhD at the Tashkent State University, in the Department of Modern Russian Language. The topic of the dissertation was ‘Word-formative modifications of ‘space’-‘time’ in Modern Russian’
I teach on the IWLP Russian programme.
I am from Uzbekistan, in Central Asia. I have a PhD in Russian language.
I taught at Tashkent University during the1990s. In 1999, I moved to the UK to take a Master’s Degree in Political Science at Reading University. I continued to teach at Reading for a couple of years, and then in London. My non-university students included diplomats, bankers and people just interested in learning Russian for pleasure. I began teaching Russian again at Reading University from 2011. In total, I have now been teaching Russian, for more than 25 years.
