Personal Description:

I am a native Russian-speaker and a certified teacher of Russian as a foreign language. I also have an EFL qualification.
Graduate of the Moscow State University, I got my PhD degree in linguistics in 2013 (namely, English linguistics).
Since November 2014 I've been living in Cambridge. I work as a freelance journalist now, but I would like to teach Russian or English as a foreign language.

Tutoring Experience:

I have more than 3 years of experience in private tutoring. I also have some experience in teaching Russian at the Russian school in Cambridge. In August 2015 I received my CELTA (a certificate in teaching English to speakers of other languages).

Tutoring Approach:

I implement a communicative approach as I believe that language lives within a context and within its cultural environment. I prefer to use several coursebooks in the classroom depending on the quality of explanations and exercises in these books. I also help my students to develop all possible skills of language proficiency, including reading, writing, listening and speaking, with the help of classical literature, mass media, video and audio.
