Hi! My name’s Batyr.

As CEO of ClassTrip, I want to make your trip to America as easy as possible.

When I first arrived in California four years ago,

I had a lot of questions and no one to help guide me. I knew there had to be a better way. That’s why I started ClassTrip.

Whether you’re choosing a language school, arranging for a place to stay, or applying for a visa, ClassTrip is here to help.

Batyr attended the State University of Moscow, where he studied Economics before transferring to Lincoln University in California. A former English language student himself, he co-founded ClassTrip in 2016.

Hey!  My name’s Tobi.

I’ve taught English classes for 7 years. As co-founder of ClassTrip, I help to make sure that your experience studying in America will be successful, fun, and deeply rewarding.

In addition, I still love to teach! I teach private, online classes for students of all levels who are interested in practicing English before they arrive in America.  If you’d like to find out more, see the Online Class section of our website.

Tobi attended Stanford University where he received a B.A. in Comparative Literature.  He has also completed an M.A. in English from Boston University. Most recently, he worked for two years as an English teacher at Kaplan International (Berkeley), a premier English language school near San Francisco, CA.
