I would say that where you want to live is going to depend highly on where you're working. You definitely don't want your commute to be overly long... for instance, I live at the end of the orange line, and I work three stops (and a bus ride) away from where I live. It takes me between 30-40 minutes to commute. I find my commute reasonable and easy, but if I were living way the heck up at, say, the Dmitrovskaya stop on the gray line, it would be a nightmare.

Unless you are working dead in the center of Moscow where rent is nigh unaffordable, you should figure out where you're working and look in the neighborhoods near there. This is going to make your life a lot more pleasant.

That aside, I live down near the Novoyasenevskya stop, and I really like it here. There are LOTS of trees, and it's very laid back and quite friendly. Or at least, there are always babushkas in the park who want to talk to the foreigner, ha.

All our babushki were working in NKVD/KGB, so don't hesitate to chat... I agree, Novoyasenevskaya is a good place.

Not sure where you're working with or whom you're working with, but I work with EF English First, and they found me a place (relatively close to my school). So if you're working with a company, then you might want to see if they can help you, or at least point you in the right direction.

Even if you aren't working for a company that offers a flat (as some schools use it as an excuse to pay you chump change) you can usually work for a company that is willing to offer you assistance in finding one and you can have more say so in where you stay that way. Also try couchsurfing as they have great flat shares.
