About Elena

I graduated People's Friendship University of Russia, earned my degree in World History (BA in World History), obtained translators's certificate in Chinese language and proficiency in English. My diploma comes with teaching credentials, which were received after academic training in teaching in selected subjects.
I spent three full academic years in Tianjin University, where I earned certificates in Chinese language proficiency (including HSK certificate), and took Master degree classes in economic and trade law in Chinese.
I worked in Russia as an ESL teacher in middle school. Besides I gained wide experience in tutoring individuals in ESL and Chinese. In China I tutored ESL to groups of students from preschool to middle school age, and individually tutored Russian language to Chinese and Korean students.
I have wide experience working with children and adults, developing individual teaching plans suitable for different ages, skills and requirements, creating fun activities to make classes interesting and studying process exiting.
I strongly believe that anyone can learn foreign language and enjoy this process.

Approved subjects

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. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chinese

I complete Chinese language course in People's Friendship University of Russia, earned teaching credentials and certificate in translation for Chinese. I accomplished course of advanced level in Chinese in Tianjin University (China), received a certificate upon completion, and also took classes in economic and trade law for Master degree in Tianjin University (China). I tutored individual and group students in Chinese (Russia).

ESL/ESOL

I earned my proficiency in English at People's Friendship University of Russia. While studying in Russia I worked as an ESL teacher at the middle school, where I learned specifics of teaching and working with children. Also, I tutored individual students of different age, where I developed teaching plans and activities for the needs and skills of each student.

Also, I taught ESL in Tianjin, China. I worked with children in preschools and middle schools. Privately tutored ESL to adults and college students.

My strong point is developing plans, where students learn basic grammar and develop their speaking skills, which enable the students to practice their skills from the beginning.

Russian

I am Native Russian, have been tutoring Russian language in China and the United States. I am experienced in explaining Russian language grammar and developing spoken language skills.

TOEFL

I helped many students in Russia to prepare for the TOEFL. I know the requirements for the test and usually focus my work on improving the skills in grammar which are necessary for writing and speaking. Also, I work on the structure of the sentences and essays for writing part (which most students find difficult to learn by themselves) and improving speaking skills as during the test participants have very limited time to answer the questions promptly. Preparing for the listening part and reading part, I focus on extending students' vocabulary, which helps them to comprehend and analyze more information during the test. My tutoring experience helped and I believe still can help many students to pass TOEFL successfully.
