Hello, my name is Andrey Pavlov and I'm 47 years old and currently living in Russia. I am a native Russian speaker and teach English, German, Japanese, Russian. I have been an online German teacher with Verbalplanet.com since February 2013. I can speak the following languages fluently: Russian, English, German, Japanese.

Detailed Profile in English

About me

I like foreign languages and also enjoy teaching them. I graduated from a technical university and after 6 years I graduated from a linguistic university. My technical education background enables me to apply various mathematical approaches, to speak and teach foreign languages.

I am also very interested in the psychology of learning and, I think, I have developed a few learning strategies which have proved to be very effective.

Qualifications & Experience

I have 17 -year working experience in teaching foreign languages. I also write language learning mobile apps.

Teaching Approach

I truly believe that grammar is the most important aspect of mastering foreign languages. Yes, without knowing words grammar is useless, but just knowing a few words and not being able to connect them won’ t get one very far. Yes, one can order food or tell a taxi driver a destination point without knowing any grammar, just the right words are enough. However, if one wants to understand what is being said or explain something or even make a simple sentence, grammar is a must. That is what my printouts are all about : they categorize many common words into groups to make it easier to build correct sentences with them according to a grammar rule. The words presented, as well as the grammar constructions trained, are remembered very effectively this way. During the lessons, students study words and grammar this way ( building their own sentences ) and read various texts in the internet to solidify their obtained grammar / vocabulary usage skills. Of course these texts are analyzed and discussed. I have made lots of such grammar / vocabulary printouts and I send appropriate ones to students before, after, or during the current lessons. I think that such “ categorization method “ is very effective and can also be used to learn any foreign language. In the past I did a research in the area of AI, specifically , pattern recognition, and later came up with a idea to use some of those pattern recognition algorithms to teach foreign languages. My approach is so simple to use that all one needs to do is to pay attention to a grammar structure being learned to make perfect sentences. One can start learning at any point, being a complete beginner or an advanced student does not make any difference to the approach, only printouts will be different.
