My goal now is to students to learn to speak, read and write excellent Russian. These skills are not only basic to good communication; they are also vital in achieving personal success My approach is to teach Russian in everyday situations rather than through older techniques like repetition and memorization alone. A Russian reading lesson might be focused on understanding a menu or a train schedule. A writing assignment might begin with writing a TV review and lead to an essay about the changing role of TV in our society. Grammar is one of my specialties. You can't communicate effectively without it, but students struggle more with grammar than anything else in Russian. Grammar is a highway for ideas, and when the highway is blocked, the ideas stall. My job is to help students express their ideas, so they can speak and write without fear.
