Personal Description:

Hello! Preevyet! I have University degree as a Russian-English linguist and a teacher. I know firsthand how challenging it can be to study a foreign language as I also speak Bulgarian and Romanian and I used to study German and French. I have recently moved to Scotland, where my daughter, who also knows 4 languages, has become a doctor student.

As a mother and a teacher, I strongly believe that the learning process must be enjoyable in order to achieve the best results.
I have different interests: from reading classical literature to skiing, from cooking to playing tennis, from travelling to knitting, from dogs to… cats.
People who know me say that I am a cheerful and friendly person.

Tutoring Experience:

I teach 'Russian for Work and Life' to adults and teenagers (at a University, at Glasgow High schools,at the Russian school of Scotland) . I teach children at Glasgow Primary schools.
I am regularly invited to do workshops, organised at universities and schools, to spark interest in the language.
I love my job and I have taught the languages over 15 years to different age groups, from home, at language courses, at schools, universities, for US Government and Moldovan Government. I am equally happy to teach one-to-one and to large groups.

I also have a University Diploma in Psychology and the MBA Diploma. The knowledge helps me understand people's motivation better and professionally teach business levels of the languages.

In the time of making New Year Resolutions if you are thinking of a resolution, like, 'I will learn Russian (or English)' please don't do that :-) My advice is to set quantitative goals, e.g.1 hour (2 or 3 hours a week of study) or to reach the next level- e.g. from Elementary to Pre-Intermediate- within 3 months or 6 months etc. I wish you all the best in 2017!

Tutoring Approach:

'Laugh Listen Learn'. I strongly believe that when you enjoy the learning process you achieve the best results.
Absolutely all lessons are individually tailored. After each lesson, my students receive a short report on the vocabulary and grammar studied, some material of their interests, also, a short plan of the next lesson.
If you are thinking of a New Year Resolution, like, 'I will learn Russian (or English)' please don't :-) My advice is to set quantitative goals, e.g.2-4 hours/week or to reach a level- e.g. Pre-Intermediate within 3 months etc. I wish you all the best in 2017 and the fun of studying a foreign language! I personally do not believe that the word "studying" was made from two words "student dying"…
