Due to my background I have always been multi-professional. I have worked for 20 years as translator, management assistant and consultant in multi-national companies specialising in translations, proofreading and editing texts. That is why I have gained excellent knowledge of English, Swedish, French and Greek. I also have 20 years' experience of teaching English as a foreign language. I teach Finnish to foreigners as well. I have studied, worked and lived in several European countries including Sweden, England, France, Serbia and Greece.
My motto: In varietate concordia - unity in diversity.
