Hello, everyone! I am a professional tutor of English and Russian as a foreign language.
I will be happy to help elementary or intermediate students to train their communicative skills and widen their vocabulary of Russian.
I will tell you about Russian traditions, festivals and unknown things that you won't find in a textbook.
I use a lot of extra activities based on Russian videos, music videos, TV-series trying to focus on the spoken language of ordinary people in their everyday life and typical tourist situations.
I will help you to start speaking about yourself right on the first lesson.

1) The most important thing in learning any language is "speak" and "understand".
2) I insist on speaking with mistakes rather than keeping silent without a single mistake.
3) Learning a language speaking on topics interesting to a student.
Interesting first lesson, a really great experience. Thank you!
