Personal Description:

I am a qualified and experienced tutor of English as a second language with a University degree in linguistics and cross-cultural communication. Higher education diploma was obtained in Russia in 1999. I graduated from Voronezh state university (the city of Voronezh, Russia). I am also a native Russian speaker. I lived in Russia for 33 years. I studied linguistics, Russian language, literature and history of Russia at school and university, so I can teach Russian as a second language as well. Now I live in Bedford (UK). I am eligible to work in the UK, have got a national insurance number and proofs of my address. My references are available upon request. So if you want to start learning, practice or master your English or Russian as a second language just give me a call.

Teaching Experience:

I worked as a tutor of English as a second language for Voronezh state technical university (the city of Voronezh, Russia) for 11 years (1999-2010). The university is among the best top ten technical universities in Russia. I dealt with teaching general English and grammar, technical English and translation for first and second year students; developing learning, test and examination material, teaching programs and written instructions for students; writing and publishing articles (37 written instructions for students and articles on linguistics and methods of teaching of English language were published in Russia). I also taught fundamentals of economics and marketing in English for the students of the economic department of the university for two years. Besides that I worked as a teacher of English as a second language and a class supervisor at school and in a college in Russia supporting pupils and students with learning difficulties. My references are available upon request.

Teaching Approach:

I abide by a practical approach to teaching languages. You can't learn the language well until you start speaking it.
