I have taught students from various backgrounds, ages, and levels. From immigrants to international students, private lessons to classrooms.
I’ve been a Russian teacher since 2014 and have taught many levels and skills, from Elementary to Advanced.
I use a variety of methods, though find the communicative approach alongside of the PPP method most successful and suitable. I design my lessons in power point, use audio clips, short films and text books so you find it easy to follow and well organized. You will see that lessons place particular emphasis on vocabulary acquisition, fluency enhancement and listening. Grammar errors are corrected immediately and a concise explanation is always provided. I am here to support you in and outside of lesson time!
I hold many teaching qualifications which have helped me to understand and engage with my students. So whether you wish to learn Russian for travel or wish to sit a major exam, I have the skills you need to coach you to achieve your goals.
I am fascinated by language structure and the way humans are able to use it.
My teaching strategy is simple. After our initial meeting and conversation and learning what your specific needs are, we will agree on a program where I teach you what you want to know, what you need to know, in the amount of time you have and, at your convenience.
Don't be shy to ask questions or make mistakes; these are important parts of the learning process! So if there is anything you would like to know, don't hesitate to get in touch and I look forward to seeing you soon!
Contact me so we can conduct a needs analysis and begin with our journey to fluency.
