About Nikita

I've always had a deep love of the English language. From poetry to grammar, studying and engaging with others about English has always held deep excitement for me. When I got certified to teach English as a foreign/second language in spring of 2012, I knew I'd found a new passion. Shortly afterward, I moved to Moscow, where I taught for 2 years in a classroom setting. Since then, I have retained some of my former students and teach them via Skype. I'm looking to engage with students face-to-face once more. I have experience with all age ranges, my youngest student being 3 and my oldest being in his 70s. I also am confident in everything from elementary English to TOEFL/CAE exam preparation.

English is a great love of mine, and I am so happy to share with other people and have them see the joy of learning!

In my lessons, I love to talk about what interests you! I go beyond the textbooks and find topics that you enjoy, so we can discuss, write, and read about them. I love meeting in coffee shops and having a real conversation as part of our lesson (I'm happy to talk about politics, art, books, feelings, work, anything!). I also enjoy adapting literature for students to read at any level. I have worked with editing such classics as The Last of The Mohicans and Tom Sawyer.

Thank you for reading my profile. I am confident that we will have a wonderful time together in learning English. Please, contact me for more information and so that we can schedule lessons!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ESL/ESOL

After receiving my TEFL certification in 2012, I moved to Moscow. There I spent 2 years teaching in schools and in private lessons. Teaching English grew to be a deep love of mine, and since 2014, I have taught remotely via Skype. I love teaching all levels, from elementary to proficiency exam prep, as well as all ages. I use fun, engaging, and real topics to get my students excited to learn. I often use articles, adapted literature, tv shows, and YouTube videos in my lessons :).

IELTS

I have my certification in teaching English as a foreign language, which I have used extensively since 2012. While living in Russia, I taught many exam preparation courses, including CPE, which is an exam deemed more difficult than IELTS according to the Common European Framework. I have also taught CAE and TOEFL, which are the same level (C1) on the Common European Framework. I'm very confident in my English abilities, and my capacity to properly enable a student to pass their exams well.

Proofreading

As a certified ESL instructor, it is my job to know the nuances of English grammar. I am highly confident in my proofreading skills, and have been a freelance proofreader since 2014.

Russian

In 2012 I received my Bachelor's degree in Russian language. In 2010 I studied Russian at Moscow State University in a six-week immersion program. Upon graduating, I moved to Moscow and lived there for two years. While there, my confidence and proficiency in the language grew. I am very confident in my Russian-speaking abilities.
