About me

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.

Teaching Approach

Communicative method.

My principles:

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.
