Offline teaching experience: 27

Certified professional language teacher with more than 30 years of experience, MA in Teaching Foreign Languages (Russian, English and German) and in Linguistics. Cambridge Certificate of English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA).
I've been teaching languages since I graduated from the university, starting with teaching at schools, then colleges, universities, blue chip companies (i.e. Johnson & Johnson) as well as giving face -to-face and on-line private tuition, which all in all comprise the students’ age range 9 - 65. Therefore I have mastered a wide range of teaching techniques which affords me to be very flexible in teaching.
My priorities are my students' confidence and convenience while studying, and their satisfaction with the final results. I’m so very proud to say that my students have achieved many of their goals, whether it’s just a simple trip to Russia or passing their exams, living in bilingual families, helping their companies to strengthen relations with Russia and even working and living in Russia. Language is an amazing tool that unites people and with the company of nearly 270 million Russian speaking people worldwide, you really have a good chance for communication. I can help you to learn Russian with confidence, step by step, at your own pace. I’d like to share the knowledge of Russian with you and to open the door to this huge world of Russia. Hope to see you soon in my Russian class!
