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.

TOEFL,

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.

Kind, inspiring, and informative.

Elena taught me the Russian alphabet! I am continuing with another tutor who teaches both French and Russian, because those are my two target languages, but I had one lesson with Elena, and it was wonderful. She's a very engaging, charismatic, knowledgable person, who speaks Russian, Mandarin, some Korean, and has a fantastic command of the English language that is really helpful. She is very kind and has a fascinating background, and I can tell that she is really good at motivating her students. She's a really well-organized teacher who also loves Russian literature, and she recommended the Living Language Russian set to me, which is going to be very helpful. She also recommended The Master and the Margarita, which I'm very excited to read. She teaches from the Living Language series, and it was very motivating to hear about her other students' success with the Russian language. I'm sure she would be a great match for any student learning Russian and/or Mandarin.

Awesome tutor

Elena jumped right in on my son's first Chinese lesson and got busy teaching. He said he liked her. I was very impressed with her communication with us about appointment dates/times, she was on time, professional and pleasent. First impression is very good. If my son likes her and he can learn from her, we have a great fit. Thank you
