Bio

My love for teaching comes from my childhood. I have always wanted to help students/people realize their own potential and see their results improved, and their success achieved through learning experiences, in particular. I specialize in teaching Russian, Spanish and English. I hold a Bachelor's degree in teaching English/Russian/Spanish, and a Master's degree in Linguistics and TESOL. I have taught in six countries in the world at different educational settings: high/middle/elementary...

My love for teaching comes from my childhood. I have always wanted to help students/people realize their own potential and see their results improved, and their success achieved through learning experiences, in particular. I specialize in teaching Russian, Spanish and English. I hold a Bachelor's degree in teaching English/Russian/Spanish, and a Master's degree in Linguistics and TESOL. I have taught in six countries in the world at different educational settings: high/middle/elementary schools, language centers, colleges, universities, to name a few. I ran a private language school for children and adults in Russia and Estonia.

Moreover, I hold a degree in interpreting and translation, and I like to translate poetry and literature. I won the first prizes in international literary contests in 2011-2013, and I am an honorary member of the European union of professional writers and interpreters.

In Australia, I was an IELTS test preparation course instructor and examiner.

My qualifications include:
Master of Arts in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages)
Master of Applied Linguistics (TESOL)
Certificate in Assessment and Training
Bachelor of Arts in Spanish/English/Russian - a recipient of an honorary scholarship for outstanding academic achievements; gold medal awardee

I am proficient in methods for teaching reading, writing, listening, speaking, conversation, pronunciation, grammar. I use the Communicative and Integrated Language Method of teaching.

I break down lessons into manageable tasks using practical exercises. I am enthusiastic and compassionate, and you should expect to make progress in every lesson. I help students of all ages and abilities.

Depending on your needs, I ordinarily give a diagnostic lesson to identify your specific needs. In this way, we can focus your lessons on those specific areas that need work.

For advanced students who seek to improve language proficiency, we can focus on listening and speaking, reading and writing at a higher level to make rapid progress. Together with you, we will create a plan for your rapid improvement.

I hold myself to high standards of teaching by continuously updating my qualifications, and asking for the feedback. I pride myself on always being prepared for the lessons, and making them interesting, relevant, and practical for my students. I write language programs, tests, and courses. I am currently working on the book " Easy Russian." I do my best to help my students of all ages and walks of life achieve their goals.
I am a professional, experienced, qualified, and knowledgeable tutor who strives for excellence, and success of the students.
I try to be flexible with time. I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy. However, I can do makeup classes.
While I can offer a quiet and comfortable study space at my place, I am happy to travel to another location or meet you on Skype or Wyzant whiteboard. I will provide you with worksheets, pens, and pencils, and will guide you through your learning with respect, care, and support!

I look forward to helping you achieve your goals! I know that learning a foreign language can be challenging, but I want to help you make it a fun and rewarding experience!

Very Knowledgeable and Friendly Tutor

We are so glad we found Tatiana. My son took Spanish lessons with Tatiana and is now getting better and confident in that subject. I would definitely recommend her for Spanish. She is a wonderful teacher.

Rad, 6 lessons with Tatiana

Knowledgeable and experienced IELTS tutor

I am glad to find Tatiana to help me prepare for the IELTS academic writing, not only because she was an IELTS examiner but she is so passionate about teaching. On the first session, she immediately showed me the format specifically for IELTS essay writing. She helped me work on the essay more efficiently and effectively by finding the key words and paraphrasing. After the first session, it really helped me boost my confidence levels. She continued to show me how to write in more coherent and cohesive ways which have been helping me tremendously. I highly recommend her!

Tatiana is very patient and has adjusted the lessons to how i learn. When she hears me getting overwhelmed or frustrated she calms me and reminds me that i am learning. She takes time to make sure i understand. The lessons are constructed to flow to my speed. The first time i spoke with her - she paid alot of attention to what my needs are in learning spanish amd this is what we focus on. I have had approximately 6 lessons and it has been wonderful. I had know idea i would have picked up so much in such a short amount of time. Tatiana is a spectacular teacher!
