About Daria

I'm a qualified ESL teacher with more than 10 years of experience in teaching English as a Second Language to adults and kids. I hold Master's in Linguistics and a Bachelor degree in Educational Management.

Besides, I have CELTA certificate (issued by Cambridge), TESOL and Certificate 4 in Training and Assessment. I lived in 4 different countries on three different continents and have been to dozens of countries around the world. I speak fluent German, Russian, Ukrainian and a bit of Spanish. I'm obsessed about languages and never miss a chance to start learning a new one or practice the one I already know.

I strongly believe in Howard Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences and always implement a number of teaching techniques to ensure the best possible learning outcomes. We are all different and it's important to find personal approach to every student, take into consideration their strengths and weaknesses, learning type and preferences and, of course, hobbies and interests. I always strive to make my lessons interesting, relevant and educational, making sure that the students are involved in the process of learning and are well motivated and fully engaged. I think that learning languages is fun, and it enriches you as a person and opens new horizons for you. It's not only about the ability to speak and understand, it's about getting to know a totally different culture and challenging yourself to becoming a better and wiser self by reaching your full potential.

I've got more than 10 years of experience; I also hold Master's degree in Linguistics, Bachelor degree in Educational Management, CELTA, TESOL, Certificate 4 in Training and Assessment.
Since I've learned languages my whole life and fluently speak 4 languages myself I know exactly what difficulties learners encounter. I also have a deep theoretical and practical grammar knowledge, understanding of English phonetics and phonology and can easily explain most difficult grammar rules and correct one's pronunciation with the help of IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet). I also try to hold the perfect balance between academic and conversational aspects making sure my lessons are highly entertaining with being well structured and educational at the same time.

I'm a native speaker of Russian and fluent in German. Please contact me to arrange meeting and talk about your language goals. We will create a schedule and before you know it you'll be speaking fluent English using correct grammar and rich vocabulary.
