Detailed Profile in English

About me

Здравствуйте! Hello!

My name is Anna. I am 33 years old. I am a Russian, Ukrainian, English and Arabic online tutor. Russian and Ukrainian are my native languages. I live in Chernihiv, Ukraine.

I have worked as a teacher of English at a secondary school. I have also worked for Chernihiv State Institute of Economics and Management. My activities at the Institute were mostly focused on Program in American Studies, a joint Washington State University-Ukraine project in American Studies curriculum development. I have been giving private lessons of English to adults and children for many years.

In 2014 I started tutoring on Skype. I teach Russian, Ukrainian, English and Arabic.

I am also a translator from English into Russian and Ukrainian (and vice versa).

As for my online lessons, I work with both beginners and advanced learners. I am rather resourceful and creative.

What do my lessons look like? They are interactive. The foundation stone is individual approach. Each lesson is based on your level, needs and preferences. I have chosen the middle ground between grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation and conversation. In fact, I pay much attention to speaking. Communicating with a native speaker is the best way to learn to speak fluently and to form proper pronunciation. I use a wide variety of textbooks, videos, presentations, podcasts and other materials. And last but not least — I’ll also be your guide to the culture of the language you learn. This is a fascinating journey through time and distance. And the route is up to you!

I also teach Business Russian, Ukrainian and English. Moreover, I’m not only a theoretician, but a practitioner as well. I have also worked as an economist and export-import manager, so I have used my Russian/Ukrainian/English in real business situations. Business/Commerce and Legal are also my working translation fields.

Arabic is my third foreign language. Now I teach Arabic for beginners who speak English, Russian and Ukrainian.

If you want to book a lesson or just ask a question, feel free to contact me.

I’ll be happy to help you master Russian, Ukrainian, English or Arabic.

Thanks for a great first lesson. Anna was very patient with my 8 year old son, and provided materials for him to review and practice. He's looking forward to his next lesson. Thanks again!
