Fully qualified teacher of Japanese and Russian languages (all levels).
I prepare students for GCSE and A-level exams, as well as conduct and assess these exams for schools and colleges. I also provide teaching services for higher education establishments, government departments and corporate entities.
I assist students with all levels of JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test) and TORFL (The Test of Russian as a Foreign Language) and all my students have very high success rate.
The teaching methodology I use has been developed over a long period of time and has proven to be very effective. It allows my students to achieve their goals in the shortest time possible. Therefore I believe that my success rate and ability to get students where they want to be quickly provides the very best value for money.
Being native in Russian, and an expert in the Japanese & English languages, I am acutely aware of the differences between English & Japanese and English & Russian languages, their specific capabilities, nuances and requirements.
I focus on teaching methods that are designed to make learning interactive and fun. I have developed my own strategy for delivering concise and meaningful learning methods to my students to assist their understanding. I enjoy teaching languages; it gives my students an opportunity to communicate with new people and expand their world.
I obtained a Master's Degree in diplomacy/international relations at the top-ranking Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO), with Japanese and English languages.
In 2000 I undertook the internationally recognised Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) achieving a 'Level 1' pass (the highest attainable level).
In 2010 I received my first teaching qualification 'Teacher of Russian as a Foreign Language' at Moscow State University, and in 2011 I was awarded 'Teacher of Japanese as a Foreign Language' qualification at The Institute of International Education in London.
From 2000 until 2010 I lived in Japan, and worked in a senior position for a leading Japanese technology company in Tokyo. During this time it afforded me an excellent 'real world' understanding of the Japanese language, its nuances and the fascinating Japanese culture.
I have been professionally teaching Russian and Japanese languages for 10 years and I can provide a lot of references.
I offer tutoring on Japanese and Russian languages for all levels from beginner to advanced. My lessons are tailor-made for each person, so no matter what your level or interest, I can ensure you will achieve your goals. Therefore, if you are looking to learn for a holiday, or as a main language I'll be able to help!
Lessons are in central Winchester, or in my house in Micheldever village. Depending on the location, I might be able to travel to students.
