Vladimir Ostapowicz

Vladimir (Vlad) Ostapowicz was born in Ohio. He began his technical writing career nearly 20 years ago. Vlad received a degree in electronics at Santa Ana College, and then a Master's degree in Linguistics at California State University, Fullerton. He taught as a part-time professor at CSUF’s ALP (American Language Program) from 2004-2006. Among the classes that he instructed were Composition and Business English.

While at CSUF, Vlad met and collaborated with a Chinese exchange teacher to write course material for Chinese university students learning English. Since then, they have co-authored over 80 textbooks used in various Chinese universities, many in reprinted editions. His travels took him to Shanghai and Hunan provinces to meet and discuss book projects with Chinese teachers and publishers.
