Mary Timakova (Netherlands)
My name is Mary. I am from The Netherlands, but my first language is English, however, I also speak Dutch and a little bit of Spanish. I have an MSc in International Economics from the Erasmus University in Rotterdam (The Netherlands). While studying I discoved my passion for teaching and spent the next 3 years teaching at the University. After I completed my study, I lived in Spain for about a year and taught English to young children (3-6 years old). My teaching experiences made me realize that I want to my a hobby into a career, so I did a CELTA and worked for Telelangue (part of Berlitz, France) for a few months before coming to Russia. I choose Russia because I like to travel and discover new places. Although some of my family is from here, I never had a chance to discover the country much, so I decided to do it now with BEC. I feel that Russia is very close to me in many aspects and I look forward to discovering more about it.
Pepe Peleti (Новая Зеландия)
Greetings all ... my name's Pepe from the beautiful land of the long white cloud, New Zealand. I'm very happy to share my passion for education, particularly in the field of facilitating English as a foreign language. It's been 13 fruitful years of travelling, working, living and learning in Japan, China, Indonesia, Argentina, Russia, Vietnam and Cambodia. It's a blessing to have enjoyed to this day many lifetime friendships. I've worked for BEC in Moscow as a TESOL teacher in 2014-2015 where I experienced the Russian winter for the first time and had the privilege to experience the Russian culture and cuisine especially my favourite "Shashlik". I'm looking forward to returning to BEC in Moscow to continue working there as an English teacher in the coming academic year 2018-2019, especially building relationships with my students as well as the staff and my fellow teachers. Blessings to all - see you soon!
