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.
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!
I'm a native speaker and certified teacher of Russian as a foreign language. I've completed a specialize 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).
My lessons are very structured and based on the teaching methods of Moscow State University. Learning Russian is not easy, but I know how to make this process interesting and fun. 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.
