I taught English in China and Russia for 3 years. I've studied both languages and am excited to help students of all ages become better English speakers! I received my M.A. in Philosophy from Claremont Graduate University August 2013. Before I came to California I received my CELTA certificate in Moscow. I follow the method I was taught there and have seen excellent results.
A brief description of how I teach is to discover the language level of the student and grade my language accordingly. The student should make an determined effort not to resort to their native language for the entire class. Each lesson will focus on a single language skill (speaking, reading, writing or listening) with timed exercises. This keeps the lessons fresh and the pace quick. I am willing to teach individuals or groups. In my opinion, learning a new language is one of the most practical and rewarding experiences. I am excited to help you meet your language goals!
I have a CELTA certificate and 2 years teaching experience in Russia. I also have a year experience tutoring English privately in China.
