I believe learning should be fun. I use many different kinds of teaching materials, exercises and technologies. Sometimes I use games and activities to help you learn in ways that don’t feel like studying. You learn faster and retain more when you enjoy your lessons!
My professional focus is on improving communication skills using fast-track techniques. The pace of my training is intensive and dynamic with focus on developing grammar, vocabulary, fluency and how to use the language in authentic situations.
MY LEARNING PLAN
I do a lot of work preparing for every lesson. I write lesson plans to guide each class and keep it focused on your learning goals. I will also teach you ways to integrate Russian, German into your daily life so you learn faster and more effectively.
Also, I have collected a lot of my own material and I can use this material to supplement a lesson or teach it by itself, if needed. I have always looked for new and creative ways to improve lessons and I continue to have the same desire in finding interesting ways of teaching Russian and German.
In general lessons include:
- Proper grammar - tenses, conjugations, cases, genders
- Accurate pronunciation and accent reduction
- Vocabulary expansion/ conversation practice
- Developing oral speech.
I can change lessons plan depending on students level and purposes.
I had a very nice discussion in Russian and English with Yana. She gave some insights into her teaching styles, and how the lessons will break down. I look forward to starting lessons with her.
Super teacher, pleasant atmpsphere, Lesson very informative and useful.
The teacher doesn`t use pay pal but that`s ok.
Very glad with first lesson! Excellent methods of teaching. I want to continue after my trip to Russia!
