I started BYEACCENT with a mission to teach and empower non-native speakers to become effective communicators in American English.
BYEACCENT started on Instagram and quickly grew into one of the most popular projects about American English online with 305K+ followers and millions of views.
BYEACCENT is known for its humorous and 'cognitive' approach to learning. Viewers also get insights on modern-day American English from frequent appearances of native speakers in videos. Over a thousand people have completed in-depth study courses with BYEACCENT.
BYEACCENT also hosts a humorous weekly #makingmistakes rubric where we celebrate the mistakes audience members have made while speaking English.
Born and raised in Russia, Moscow, I always loved comedy & performing. This led me to play KVN debuting on national television at 20, and take part in other TV projects such as ‘KVN’, ‘Comedy Woman’ & ‘Laughter in The Big City’.
8 years ago I came to Los Angeles to study for 3 months and could barely understand American speech despite years of learning English back in Moscow. I realized that all the knowledge I had been given at school & university had little in common with the reality of American life.
I was told it is impossible to get rid of the Russian accent & assimilate to the point of understanding nuanced culture & humor. Proving that wrong became my main focus and challenge for the last 7 years! I just knew it can be done.
Nowadays I produce, act, write and perform comedy in English. I live in Los Angeles, California.
