Teaching Approach

How will we study?

My core principle of teaching is formulated in a very short phrase “to get a quick results”. I achieve this through short explanations, effective exercises and a lot of real life communication.

What will you get at our Russian classes?

1. A free evaluation session to establish a curriculum based on your individual preferences. So it will be easy for you to follow your own progress lesson after lesson.

2. A great number of different studying materials, including films, music, articles and Russian literature: materials based on your individual interests. There will be no need to buy books or download any strange programs.

3. Language support 24\7

Every lesson comes with one extra task that will get you involved in an original Russian language environment and test your knowledge in real life situations. But please, do not worry! I guarantee you online language support 24\7 . Thus you will not be discovering the Russian language alone day by day.

What do I need for classes?

All I want for my students is for them to discover new opportunities in their lives with the Russian language. And the only thing you need to get started is to book your free evaluation session with me now!

Well, I hope we can work together.

If you have any questions or you need my help, please feel free to contact me.

About me

Добрый день! Благодарю за проявленный интерес к моей персоне. С детства меня привлекают языки, культуры и история разных стран. И хотя я родилась и живу на Украине (Восточный регион, где сейчас идут боевые действия), я искренне считаю своим домом всю нашу большую планету, не разграничивая на - «моя земля» или чужая, «братский народ» и «иностранцы». Я не приемлю понятия «чужой язык» и готова с огромным удовольствием научить Вас говорить на языке, который знаю - русский, украинский, английский.

Qualifications & Experience

Квалификация:

2002-2007- Степень «Магистр», Донецкий Национальный Университет, факультет Иностранных Языков, кафедра романо - германской филологии. Специальность «Филолог - германист. Преподаватель Языка и Литературы».

Опыт работы:

Имею успешный 14 летний опыт частной языковой практики ( Английский и Русский языки). С радостью работаю как с детьми так и со взрослыми.

Teaching Approach

Самое важное в обучении языкам - это индивидуальный подход. Я никогда не занимаюсь по одному учебнику, не соблюдаю постоянства в методике. Каждое занятие со студентом я стараюсь построить так, чтобы оно максимально удовлетворяло всем потребностям ученика на текущий момент , учитывая его настроение, жизненные обстоятельства и интересы в это день.

Я не провожу урок, мы просто каждый раз вместе «переживаем» целую маленькую жизнь новой языковой культуры. Взгляните на изучение языка как на настоящее путешествие в еще одну страну мира! Я всегда к Вашим услугам.

3rd lesson with Svetlana and she has quickly understood my level of current learning and put together a short programme of tutoring. The lessons have so far been fun, interactive and with a really positive and constructive mood.

I was really impressed with the level of customization in our lesson. We covered so much in such a short amount of time and even though I was nervous because I hadn't practiced in a while, but she made me feel very very comfortable.
