About Lena

I am originally from the city of Sumy, Ukraine. I successfully graduated from a pedagogical university in Sumy a while ago and acquired a Master's degree in methodology of teaching languages and linguistics.
Prior to moving to the beautiful state of Florida I had resided for 7.5 years in Vienna, Austria. Since I have always been drawn to the study of languages and innovative tendencies in the field of teaching as well as education as a whole, I chose to further pursue my great interest in languages by studying translation/interpretation at the University of Vienna. I am fluent in spoken and written Russian, Ukrainian, German and English. Teaching has always been my great passion and inspiration. Hence I have continuously taught various age groups language lessons.
So far I have acquired over 14 years of successful teaching experience: throughout all these years i have taught intensive language courses in English (business language inclusive), Russian (business language inclusive) and German as well as done a great deal of private tutoring.

Being a qualified specialist in methodology of teaching languages and having passion, enthusiasm, devotion, knowledge and simply possessing a natural ability to teach, I have earned respect and great popularity with my students and inspired them to succeed in their lives. I prefer to maintain balance between professionalism and fun. I know what issues and hurdles language students have to tackle and overcome, I know what their struggles and concerns are, and that's exactly the reason i am here for - to help you and show you that learning languages can be so much fun! I am a quick observer and can detect where the problem areas lie pretty fast. Thus i am also able to focus on specific solutions and tailor my teaching style, content and grade of difficulty to suit my students' needs the best.
I have studied transcultural communication and translation/interpretation in the beautiful city of Vienna and i have taught people with different cultural backgrounds in multilingual environments. I have come to realize that the most rewarding experience for a passionate teacher stems from success and satisfaction of her students.

I would be happy to share my extensive experience and knowledge to help you conquer language 'hurdles' or just become an excellent speaker either for fun, travel or business, irrespective of you age. Please feel free to contact me and I'll do my best to give you a prompt reply. Looking forward to hearing from you soon!

Russian

I am a native speaker of Russian with a strong linguistic background. I have a master's degree in teaching languages supported by following studies of translation/interpretation( German/English/Russian language combinations) and transcultural communication at the University of Vienna, Austria.
I have taught Russian as a foreign language to students with various cultural backgrounds in authentic foreign language environments. For years I have successfully helped my students learn Russian from scratch or significantly improve their language skills either for personal fun, travel or business.
I have taught multiple intensive Russian language courses in western Europe and given corporate training classes in Russian as well as in Business Russian. Moreover, I have gained broad experience in private Russian language tutoring, providing students of all ages with hours of fun and constructive learning experience.
