I am a young lady from Moscow, Russia, recently relocated to the US.
I can teach Russian language, French language or photography, also have strong command of computers so I might help you with it as well.
I love languages, can talk about them for ages and I'm passionate about photo.
I like to make things simple and useful, and since I've spent many many years learning things I want to teach now, I know what's useful, what's not and what is essential. And I know exactly how to explain that.
Speaking about languages, the most common problem is wasting time on learning bunch of rules by heart without understanding them and without using it in real world situations. I can help! And I know how :)
During my university years I've been teaching English and French for a while, helping scholars to prepare for their exams and training people who were going to work with international customers. They've had success after my lessons and one of my students was chosen to be an expert of a French-speaking customer service department.
Here in the US I have worked as a Russian teacher assistant at a college and I was a member of Russian scoring team.
I like to combine classic "university" methods with real life situations and examples. Of course we are speaking the language in question during the lesson, we listen to the songs and read books and newspapers. I like to choose suitable materials for each student - some people prefer fairy tales and some - commercial newspapers.
I am Microsoft Certified Professional. I have worked as expert engineer in a software company, assisting customers with all their questions regarding the software and its communication with different Windows versions. I'm also qualified as a teacher (of psychology), so the combination of these skills allows me to present myself as a Windows tutor.
Russian is my native language, so I naturally have a strong command of it.
I studied psycholinguistics at the university and I am qualified as a teacher of psychology with intercultural communication specialization. I am fluent in English as well, so I can easily communicate with the U.S. students.
