"I'm Natalia Ladygina and I've been with TTT since February 2020. I'm the team member who believes in the virtue of high-stake exams for language teachers - I know it first hand that they can open a lot of doors for you, depending on your circumstances and aspirations. Therefore, currently I'm investing my time, energy and expertise into planning, designing, running and facilitating the TTT Exams Track. I don't teach there, but I do a lot of backstage work: designing and marking placement tests, coming up with monthly guides, inviting expert-speakers, preparing and running mock tests, helping people to learn to set their weekly goals and to track their progress and to learn about nuances of each exam paper.
Outside TTT I'm an English Teacher, a CELTA and CELT-P tutor, a teacher trainer, a conference speaker, a happy woman, a wife and a mom, a loyal friend, an avid reader, a keen traveller, a used-to-be dancer, and a person who is in love with her life."
