About Galina

Tutoring helps me to increase my confidence and ability as a teacher. I have been a teacher all my life and I simply love teaching and helping my students, because during the process I can see how my students moving forward.
I am a native Russian speaker and, of course, I can also help you with learning this language.
I am holding an Elementary School Teacher degree and have experience of working with small children for 10 years. Plus, I earned a certificate of 2 years in foreign languages courses and have 10 years' experience as an English Teacher of High School in Russia.

My lessons are based on dialogue and discussions. I have found this strategy extremely effective and beneficial in developing strong teacher-to-student relationships.

I will be glad to share my knowledge and experience with people seeking a tutor for their children who are Elementary School students and also for Russian speaking people, willing to learn English and English speaking people who want to study Russian.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students.

Russian

My name is Galina.I am a native speaker of Russian language and a professional teacher. I have 20 years experience of teaching in Russian Schools. First 10 years of my experience was teaching in Elementary School, and next 10 years I was an English and Russian teacher. I hold a bachelor's degree in linguistics and childhood education. I was teaching English as a foreign language to Russian students and have excellent tutoring experience in teaching Russian to English speaking people. I can teach all levels of the Russian language and I am really excited to teach students of any age. I have been a teacher all my life and I simply love teaching, because during the process I can see how my students move forward. Tutoring gives me the opportunity to continue doing what I always loved to do. I am a dedicated tutor-strict, but kind. I teach adults and children one-to-one, in groups or online.
