I am a teacher by profession with BSc in Chemistry, Biology and English. I have been working at different educational establishments for more than 20 years. I consider myself as a positive, friendly, hard working and reflective teacher.
I am a native Russian speaker and I originate from the St. Petersburg region that is considered to be the cradle of the classical Russian language.

Tutoring Approach

All my lessons are individually planned bearing in mind the student’s progress. I try to make every lesson interesting, useful and productive.
• For Russian Language lessons I have plenty of up-to-date study resources (a variety of textbooks, workbooks and tests for adults; colourful books and dictionaries with pictures for young children; and study books/workbooks designed for schoolchildren according to their level and interests). I also have collected a lot of interesting books for an enjoyable home reading.
• For Chemistry lessons I set up a target of the lesson and will work hard with a student to achieve it. I will use different learning styles that fit the students the best, identify and work on previous knowledge gaps in order to grow more knowledge and confidence in success through various engaging tasks including practical ones for better understanding of theoretical subject and its application.
I provide all my students with all the necessary materials.
