I am happy to offer you English, French and Russian lessons tailored to your needs.
I am a qualified teacher with 9 years` experience in Moscow, Paris and London.
I graduated from Moscow Pedagogical State University and hold a Master of Education. Additionally, I passed the CELTA course in Paris in 2013.
I am a well-organised strong classroom performer who is able to effectively communicate with students from diverse backgrounds, varying degrees of ability and ages. Teaching groups and one to one teaching is equally rewarding. However, this is the latter one that gives you an amazing possibility to tailor the session towards the needs, level and capability of a student.
By using my enthusiasm felt by learners and readiness to experiment, I can maintain a positive climate where students can reach their full potential.
As an inspirational teacher with high personal standards, I am committed to the learning and development of my students. I have high expectations of both myself and my students, and show an interest in every student as an individual.
I feel that my greatest strengths are my ability to inspire love of languages in students, to motivate them in developing a lifelong enthusiasm for learning.
I prefer teaching languages through culture. The most important duties are those of
✓ helping students to improve their conversational and vocabulary skills,
✓ arranging interesting and motivating homework for students,
✓ teaching grammar through conversation,
✓ giving appropriate feedback,
✓ encouraging students to ask questions and to express their difficulties,
✓ preparing students for external examinations,
✓ keeping up to date with development in the world of teaching.
✓ tailoring teaching methods to suit the needs of individual students and preparing creative handouts.
✓ teaching with project-based learning.
I work with students of different levels (Beginner, Elementary, Pre-intermediate, Intermediate, Upper-Intermediate, Advanced) and age groups (preschool children, schoolchildren, students, adults).
I also prepare students for Cambridge (Starters, Movers, Flyers, KET, PET, FCE, IELTS/TOEFL) and Oxford (SELT) exams, TOEFL, GESE (Trinity), IELTS Academic, General training and Life skills and GCSE in French and Russian, TRKI in Russian.
