Hello, I cannot wait to meet you! My name is Akim, I was born and raised in Luxembourg. For my studies, I lived in a few countries, such as France & USA for my bachelor's in social sciences, and in Russia for my master's in management. Right now, I live in Luxembourg and work part-time in real estate.
It has been 3 years now that I am working as either: private English language teacher, freelance writer and proofreader (at Livinston Research for 2 years), or also as English teacher in a classroom. I also animated a few languages clubs and a summer school. I worked with people from 9 years old until the advanced adult range (professionnals who wanted to improve their English). I will be glad to give you more details further on!
For sure I do not have 15 years of experience in print journalism (as mentioned in the example of the form). I am 23 years old, in fact already married and graduated from my master's studies. I am quite ahead of my age. Also in English: I lived all my life in international environments, lived also in USA, and I have been working since 3 years both as a teacher and a writer/proofreader online on the Livingston Research platform. I am interested to work with China, because with my wife we are planning to move in the coming years to China for English teaching (my wife is also an English teacher).
I graduated from high school in 2013. I applied for a university in France in 2013. In 2014, I applied to move to a more famous university in France as well, which is actually an institute rather than a university (Sciences Po - quite famous, with a 5% success rate). After one year at the institute, my background allowed me to apply to be moved to the USA, at the University of Virginia, which is currently the 2nd best public university in the USA after Berkeley (California). I know very well the U.S. system of university applications, because I went through it myself and succeeded - and even graduated from my bachelor's after my USA studies. Then I applied to move to Russia for an English-taught program, and was also accepted (see attached file).
