Hello, and thank you for visiting my profile. I am Russian and live in Russia. I Interact with people easily and enjoy experiencing new cultures. My interests are world travel, relationship of language and culture, education, jazz, cats.
I am a native Russian speaker professional teacher with a Master's level Russian language. I teach general Russian, exam preparation (TORFL any level).
I love teaching; and look forward to working with you to help you reach your language learning goals!
I have a Master's degree in Russian philology and two years experience as a Private Tutor. I am a certified examiner for the TORFL.
My background is in Russian linguistics, Russian literature, forensic linguistics.
I love teaching Russian. Helping students discover my language and my culture is quite satisfying.
I believe that each student is different, so I always do my best to adapt my lessons to your needs and your learning style. However, I don’t think it’s possible to teach “only grammar” or “only conversation” Russian. I offer my students a lot of conversation practice, but also grammar, vocabulary, listening and reading exercises.
The Russian language is powerful tool. If you are ready to work I would like to show you the many wonderful ways to use that tool.
lesson was very effective, Maria is great teacher and she make Russian language very easy, she prepare very well before each lesson, i will continue with her till i speak Russian very well.
Maria is great teacher and i advice any one to have lesson with her in order to learn Russian, she is very smart and she make the lesson very effective and easy.
Maria really worked hard to put me at ease, as this was the longest conversation I've had in Russian for many years. She was good at identifying my interests and working out a plan for our future lessons, which I am looking forward to.
