Private Russian classes with native speaker. You will learn how to read, write and speak Russian from experience, native speaking teacher with MA in Russian language and literature. My teaching experience goes beyond 15 years now.

My teaching approach usually contains of two different techniques:
- Classic approach where teaching is based on the student’s native language. English will be used for explaining new grammar rules and vocabulary. This technique is appropriate for adult students at the very beginning of the teaching process when the students cannot understand Russian at all.
- Communicative approach where the emphasis will be made on oral communication solely in Russian with using such activities as games, singing songs, creating dialogs between students, discussing various events etc. This technique is introduced gradually and becomes prevailing when the students already have a certain knowledge base in Russian language.

At my lessons, I often use various games, discuss news and events of public life, and create monologues to given topics, etc. I try to teach my students all the essentials of Russian grammar and let them receive a vast vocabulary in the target language.
