English (Foreign Language)
My name is Dmitry, and I'm an Oxford-trained linguist and a qualified teacher of Russian and English. I have been teaching languages for the past 8 years and am currently a Teaching Fellow in Russian at University College London (SSEES, UCL).
Before moving to England, I spent two and a half years teaching English at Tomsk University. I have been teaching Russian since I graduated from Oxford in 2008 (including at Bristol University last year). I'm now employed as a Teaching Fellow in Russian at UCL. I also teach Russian at the Foreign Office.
My teaching style is a continuum: from a very formal structural approach to a very relaxed communicative style. Usually, it's a mixture of styles - I believe there's no single most effective teaching method. Of course, I always try to tailor all my lessons to the student's needs. One of the most important things for me is thorough organisation of each individual lesson - lesson plans are absolutely essential. It's also important to eliminate any element of boredom, which I achieve through a relatively fast tempo and a constant change of language activities. Finally, I'm very patient and friendly as a tutor.
