Adams Education was founded by Kristina and Jeb Adams who currently provide EFL (English as a Foreign Language) instruction to all ages and levels.
Jeb Adams was born in the United States. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Latin American Studies and Spanish Language from the University of Wyoming in 1999. During this period he had the unique opportunity to study in Buenos Aires, Argentina where he studied Spanish language and taught English for a private school. After graduating from the University of Wyoming, Jeb moved to Macedonia where he taught English language as a Peace Corps volunteer from 2000-2001 in Kicevo. Due to the regional conflict in 2001 the Peace Corps was forced to evacuate Macedonia. Jeb, however, decided to stay in Macedonia and marry Kristina Noveska (Adams). Jeb and Kristina moved back to the United States later that year to pursue their graduate degrees. In 2004 Jeb received his Master of Arts degree in Russian and East European Studies from the University of Kansas. During his Master studies he spent a semester in Belgrade, Serbia studying Serbian language and social politics. Upon graduating from the University of Kansas Jeb began a career in international development in Washington D.C. After four years of city life Jeb decided to move back to Kicevo, Macedonia to open Adams Education.
Jeb is a certified English as a Foreign Language (EFL) instructor and provides English language instruction to high school students, adults, and business professionals. He has taught EFL in Argentina, Spain, Macedonia, Madagascar, and Morocco.

Literature and Language from Cyril and Methodius University in 2001. After graduating, Kristina married Jeb Adams and proceeded to move to the United States to attend graduate school. She successfully received her Master of Arts degree in Russian and East European Studies from the University of Kansas in 2004. During her graduate studies Kristina spent a semester abroad in Belgrade, Serbia studying Serbian language and cultural studies. Upon graduation Kristina moved to Washington D.C. where she worked as an independent translator and interpreter.
