Personal Description:

I have a PhD in Political Science from University College London, on the subject of alcohol policy in Russia. I obtained a BA in Philosophy, Politics and Economics from the University of Oxford, and spent five years as a civil servant before travelling to Russia to teach English as a Foreign Language. I love travelling and am also a keen sportswoman. I study Russian at advanced level and so understand what it is like to be a learner and the problems you can face.

Tutoring Experience:

I spent one year teaching English as a Foreign Language in Russia (adult evening classes and one-to-one tuition), including coaching students for the IELTS examination. I also have experience of the following: coaching university students on essay- and thesis-writing; proofreading essays and theses; preparing students for oral exams. I speak Russian at advanced level and so am able to teach beginner and elementary level Russian.

Tutoring Approach:

I am friendly and relaxed. I like to get to know my students so I can make your lessons personal to you. I believe you will learn much more effectively if your lessons are interesting and enjoyable. In return, I expect students to take responsibility for their learning. As a teacher, I can certainly guide your learning, but only YOU can do the hard work of actively learning. I can't take the knowledge from my head and put it into yours - if only it were that easy! I will ask you lots of questions to help you to work out and discover the answers for yourself, rather than simply lecturing you. You will be doing most of the talking, not me!
