About me

Hello! I am Elena. I live in Moscow. Perhaps we are separated by thousands of kilometers, but I know exactly what unites us: curiosity, the desire to learn, set new goals and achieve them.

Learning Russian is not easy, but I know how to make this process interesting and fun. Why would you like to learn Russian?

- Get acquainted with Russian literature

- Visit Russia

- Make new friends

- Communicate with business partners

Whatever your goal may be - I'll help you to achieve it!

Qualifications & Experience

I'm a native speaker and certified teacher of Russian as a foreign language. I completed a specialist course at Moscow State University. I've been teaching for 5 years.

I am a journalist by profession and I currently work for a literary magazine. I have a special relationship with Russian, I do not just speak / read / write in Russian, I work with it at a professional level. That is why, perhaps, written workshops are among some of my favorites.

Before this, I worked at a leading federal radio station. I think it's very important for teachers to have clear pronunciation (no accent/no dialect).

Teaching Approach

My lessons are very structured and based on the teaching methods of Moscow State University. I pay great attention to securing and providing excellent materials. If I am not sure that a student has understood everything, I will wait to give them more material and spend more time reviewing misunderstood information.

I am convinced that written assignments are very helpful in the language learning process. After 3-4 lessons my students will start writing small essays.

I often use Russian literature for educational purposes.
