Hi there! I’m Natasha, a young BUT experienced (more than 3000 hours taught online in total) and professional teacher with an MA in Russian as a foreign language and a BA in language teaching
… have just decided to learn Russian and want to find a teacher who can guide you from the very beginning to the desired level
…have already been learning the Russian language for a while, you know a bit about Russian grammar but still don’t have a complete grasp of how the Russian language works
… have been learning Russian for quite a long time, you have a good vocabulary, you’re familiar with Russian grammar but still lack confidence speaking with Russians or are afraid you'll forget everything you've learned?
HERE I AM! No matter what your current level is, I’ll be equally happy to help you!
ME AS A TEACHER
As a teacher I always try to create a trusting, friendly atmosphere without any pressure. BUT at the same time I give special attention to the effectiveness of my lessons. I understand how discouraging it might be (for both students and teachers) having lessons and seeing no results. That’s why you’ll have a sort of interactive map of your “Russian learning journey” and I’ll make sure you’ve assimilated each key points at each stage, in each lesson!
MY LESSONS AND MY TEACHING STYLE
If you want to start swimming in the “ Russian language ocean”, first you need to travel along the river from level A0 to A1/A2. With me you’ll always know how much progress you've made and how much is left to achieve your goal. Along the way we’ll collect everything you need to create a strong foundation for your future learning.
FOR INTERMEDIATE STUDENTS
My lessons for intermediate students are more flexible
Depending on what you’re having difficulty with we can
-fill the gaps in your grammar knowledge
-broaden your vocabulary in the areas you need/want to improve
-improve those of your skills where you don’t feel confident, like speaking/listening/pronunciation/ writing or reading
If you have an advanced level of Russian, I’m sure that you know well what you need, just let me know! In any case we can diversify our lessons using popular in Russia YouTube videos, series and films
FOR ALL TYPES OF LESSONS
Together, based on your needs and interests we’ll create a plan (10 lessons ahead).
The platform we’ll use allows you to see your trail/track of learning Russian, You can see what we’ve done (all the materials, videos, audio files, comments, answers for your questions - basically everything) as well as what we’ll do next. Everything in one place! So at any time we can go back and review everything.
From the very beginning I prioritise speaking on my lessons. Cause that’s exactly why you’re looking for a teacher, right? So we’ll speak as much as possible and I can assure you, you will be comfortable:)
To make our lessons more effective, after each session you’ll get a homework to do.
Understanding that each person is unique, I’m always open and ready to adapt our lessons depending on the situation you’re facing.
If you think I could help you, BOOK A TRIAL SESSION. I’m looking forward to meeting you and to discuss your needs.
