I am a native Russian speaker with a BEng from a Russian university. I am also a postgrad student in applied linguistics as well as an EFL teacher with a TEFL certificate and three years of online tutoring experience. I teach both children and adults.
I have been teaching online since 2018. Although my main area of expertise is EFL (English as a Foreign Language), I have done some Russian language tutoring.
I have taught over 30 people. Those who are willing to put in enough effort enjoy significant improvements in their language abilities. My students soon become confident in reading and listening to authentic materials and talking to native speakers.
I have taught via Zoom, Skype and even WhatsApp with my students using their computers, tablets or smartphones. I do prefer Zoom, and of course, a computer will offer you more functionality.
Over the three years of tutoring online I have learned various ways of delivering lessons. With the help of a whiteboard and an online language teaching platform, I create engaging and interactive sessions.
My lesson planning is based on communicative and lexical approaches to teaching foreign languages, and I pay particular attention to pronunciation and fluency. You can look forward to learning lots of new idioms and handy expressions that will make you sound more natural. There will be authentic audio, video and reading materials, and a lot of speaking practice.
A language learner myself, I appreciate the difficulties you may encounter on your way to your language goal. To make your journey smoother, we will use a selection of effective language learning techniques and tricks.
