Personal Description:

I am a native Russian speaker. I originate from the St. Petersburg region which is considered to be the cradle of the classical Russian language. I speak standard Russian.
I am a teacher by profession with degrees in Chemistry, Biology and English and more than 20 years of teaching experience. I am a positive, friendly, hardworking and reflective teacher.
I moved to the UK in 2006 and since enjoy tutoring my native language and science.
My hobbies are healthy living, interior design, reading and writing in English, making and publishing my own educational resources.

Teaching Experience:

• Russian - all levels and all ages.
I have more than 15 years of experience of private tuition to students of different nationalities, abilities, levels and needs including primary, secondary school, GCSE and university students. I have also taught business Russian, Russian for tourists and just for pleasure.
• Chemistry and Biology – up to GCSE.
I have 9 years of teaching Chemistry and Biology in secondary schools. I obtained a large variety of practical skills while working in a Science Laboratory and hence know all the practical aspects of Chemistry and Biology experiments from scratch.
• English – English as a foreign language.
I have more than 10 years of experience of teaching English in schools and privately.
I was a lecturer of Business English in Kyiv Economic Management Institute.

I work one-to-one, via Skype or Zoom.

Teaching Approach:

As a tutor firstly I identify the student’s specific needs and preferences and then I tailor learning material for each student. Each student will get support in a timely and targeted way; I stretch and challenge them if they require. I also keep a track record for every student in order to monitor their success closely.
I tend to give to a student regular homework which then should be sent back to me for marking and feedback. My feedback will help a student to be clear in where they were wrong and where they need to focus. This provides support which helps them progress.
Finally, I have plenty of up-to-date learning materials and resources. There is no need for extra expenses as a student will be sent all the necessary learning materials electronically. They include study books, student’s workbooks, worksheets, tests, audio/video files, home reading books, etc. All the resources are up-to-date and engaging.
From my Russian lessons a student will learn how to read from the first lesson and will be involved in dialogues and speaking in every lesson. I will be gradually improving student’s pronunciation and brushing up on their phonetics and grammar. A student will be practicing their conversational skills in a variety of life situations e.g. in the street, in the bank or in shops, etc. I will also help them to learn and understand Russian culture and traditions.
With every lesson a student’s knowledge and confidence will grow and I do my best to make that learning journey quick, easy and enjoyable.
