Information About Jurate - Edinburgh teacher - (1 review)
This is how 2 referees rated Jurate:
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.
I have 8 years of Russian tutoring experience at every level.
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.

She has provided additional study materieals to allow me t work at a pace suitable for me nad is adaptable in her lesson delivery to meet my needs.
She is encouraging and suppoertive. She uses an emerssion style of delivery which at first is a little overwhelming but it certainly keeps you focused on the language you are learning.
SHe had made excellent recommendations reguarding further reading and studies and has been very helpful in explaining the cultural diversity and differences between th Uk and Russia as my reason for larning the language is that I will be living ther in a few months time.
I am very happy with Jurate and her teaching stlye and would recommend her happily. She listens well to her students and has a personable approach and a friendly personality. She makes lessons fun and acheiveable.
