Hello, my name is Natalia Lebedeva. I am an online English, French and Russian tutor.
I am from Volgograd, Russia, and have been teaching for 12 years as a tutor. My research work includes 17 academic publications among which the monograph 'Islamic Organizations in Contemporary Russia' published in Russian and English in 2011 can be mentioned.
My interests are languages teaching, linguistic, cultural, and religious research.
I am a translator of the English and French languages ( Volgograd State University, 2003, diploma with honours); a lecturer of the Higher School (2008, diploma with honours), candidate of Sociology (2009).
As for my work experience, I have been teaching the languages at university and translating since 2004 and have been working as a tutor since 2002.
My students successfully pass international language examinations, enter European universities and work in different countries.
The teaching approach is based upon the following principles:
- simplicity of information presentation (my lessons are quite simple to understand),
- motivation of a student, leading to a student's independence in a foreign language study,
- completeness (listening, reading, writing, speaking skills are trained equally regularly).
My methods include different combinations of classical, communicative, motivating technologies.
I teach elementary, intermediate, advanced levels of the languages, help student to get prepared for IELTS, FCE, TOEFL, etc.
I have just started studying French with Natalia. It seems to be simple and easy with her.
