I am a bilingual Russian/English speaker with an extensive background and over 10 years of experience in teaching foreign/second languages. I have taught in a classroom setting as well as one-on-one tutoring. I try to follow the most productive second language acquisition approach, which is communicative approach; however, my priority is to accommodate my students and make them feel comfortable with my teaching techniques. I feel it is necessary to collaborate with my students when it comes to their most comfortable style of learning that yields result, willingness to continue learning, and desire to excel. I like to incorporate all four language skills into my lessons, but speaking and comprehension are always the main focus unless a student desires otherwise. I am one of those tutors who do not push for perfection but still strive for progress. During my lessons, I keep in mind what my students need to work on from previously taught material, so that way I incorporate it into the next class. With all my students depending on their level, I might use somewhat similar textbooks, but lessons are never the same. I try to vary my classes as much as possible in order to keep my students alert and focused. We watch movie segments, authentic videos, listen to songs, act out real life conversations, play games ,and do traditional drills if the need arises.
I can get you to start speaking English or Russian if you are a complete beginner or hone your language skills in whatever language domain you might be interested in.
I studied foreign language pedagogy in a reputable university (Belgorod State University) in Russia tutoring kids and adults at the same time and continued my studies here in the US getting my Master's Degree in Linguistics from FAU and an ESOL certificate.
Being bilingual, I am able to utilize my experience in second language learning as well as passion for cultural and linguistic differences to better assist my students.
I look forward to meeting my new students.
