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 Experience

• I have more than 14 years of experience of private tuition of Russian to different nationalities.

On-line tutoring is also available.

Tutoring Approach

For my lessons I use a communicative approach. From the first lesson you will be involved in dialogue and reading. I will improve your pronunciation and I will be brushing up your phonetics and your grammar in every lesson. You will be practicing your conversational skills in a variety of life situations e.g. on the street, in the bank or in shops … You will learn about Russian culture and traditions. With every lesson your knowledge and confidence will be growing. You will have an e-copy of your main study book with audio files to listen to at home and to do some grammar tasks. I will provide you with additional books for home reading for pleasure.
