☑ A native Russian speaker ★ Taught Russian at the College of Wooster, Ohio, USA (Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced) 🏆 Judge for Undergraduate Olympiada of Spoken Russian, Bowling Green State University, USA ☀️ Teaching experience: 6 years. 🎓 B.A. in Teacher Education (English and Spanish), Honours ★ Professional Qualification: Teacher of Russian as a Foreign Language (Moscow State University). Hi! My name is Marina, and the reason why I teach Russian is that my heart is full of deep love for teaching and learning. I love helping others, foreign languages and my native language, cultures, and, more importantly, people and the world. I am a professional Russian and English teacher from Ryazan, Russia. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Teacher Education (English and Spanish) from Ryazan State University. After that, I completed the 350 hours course "Methods of Teaching Russian as a Foreign Language" at Moscow State University and obtained the title "Teacher of Russian as a Foreign Language." My experience in education has always been multicultural. I studied and worked in Russia, Spain, and the United States of America. I also taught Russian in the US at the College of Wooster, Ohio (as part of my Fulbright Program experience). Besides teaching Russian, I've been teaching English for about 6 years. As a teacher, I am very attentive, patient, and responsible. I’m focused on my students’ progress, and I’m intent on improving your fluency and accuracy. My approach is communicative and student-centred, which means that we’ll tailor the study plan and the pace of learning to your needs and interests. I believe that the most important part of education is people: what is within and among us. That is why I do my best to create a warm atmosphere during the lessons and find a suitable approach for every individual. I treat students with attention, support, and care, and I share the knowledge that I have using the most effective teaching methodologies and techniques. I provide all the necessary study materials: textbooks, workbooks, interactive online exercises, authentic and adapted texts, audio and video materials, google docs, powerpoints, word and pdf files. I am very excited to meet you, and I look forward to our lessons! See you soon!
Hello! My name is Sveta and I’d like to be your Russian language tutor. My specialization is General Russian for levels 0 - B1 and Business Russian for levels A2 - B2. If you are a very beginner in Russian, we will start from the alphabet and reading rules. It takes just one lesson to learn it and to start reading in Russian! In my classes we will learn only useful contemporary vocabulary and constructions. I pay a lot of attention to grammar, but the main goal of learning is to start speaking, that's why you will be speaking from the first lessons. I use a lot of communicative tasks in my classes. I always try to make my classes enjoyable, because I'm sure it helps to absorb information more easily. Also I'm sure, that it's more easy to learn a language, when you take it as an adventure but you see the results. So no boring tasks and useless words and constructions in my classes. Only the language that Russian speakers use in everyday life. Talking about the process - after each lesson you will have your home task - written and audio tasks for developing your speaking skills from the very beginning. I believe that without learning grammar and doing hometasks it's almost impossible to learn Russian in a short time. For those who have basic level in Russian and need Russian for business I have a special Business Russian course starting from the level A2. There are a lot of special business topics and vocabulary that you may need for your business. To assure you that I am competent in business terminology I will say that I got Masters degree in Economics and spent eight years working in finance. So if you are interested in learning Russian don't hesitate and sign up for a trial class. See you!
