My name is Eric Vekstein and I am from Bethesda, Maryland U.S.A. Since 1997 I’ve worked for a number of US government agencies as well as the State Department. I have taught English in the Adaption Children Program (ACP) for a number of years and worked with a number of students with varying skill levels. I received training in Catonsville Community College in the U.S as well as the MGGU for English teachers during my stay in Moscow. For the last 5 years I have been teaching English in both Moscow and Astana. Most of my students are working adults that have dramatically improved their English proficiency over the course of my program.
