Personal Description:

Having been brought up in a multilingual family, and completed a master's journalism and Russian language and literature, I use immersion techniques to help students learn quickly and effectively.

Teaching Experience:

I have 8 years of Russian tutoring experience at every level.

Teaching Approach:

If you learnt to speak one language (your mother's tongue) you can learn another! I use immersion techniques that are shown to increase language acquisition by tapping into the part of the brain that helped you learn your first language as a child. Even from the first lesson, we speak as much Russian/Polish as possible and I keep students engaged and in control of their learning by guiding them to figure out the ins and outs of a new language.

I tailor my teaching methods to every student individually. Whether you are just a beginner, getting to grips with the Russian alphabet and pronunciation, a university student who needs help with Russian literature and essay writing, or someone who needs to learn technical or business language. I have a lot of experience in working in the media and journalism and am able to help with writing style and content.

I tailor all my classes to the students interests, for example if you need to learn to Russian in order to conduct business in a particular field, I will focus on the relevant vocabulary and topics. For the beginners I try to keep the lessons interesting by choosing topics together with the student that are close to the students heart and interests.
