About Arina

I have majored in Education (Teaching English as a Second /Foreign Language and Linguistics) and started working as an instructor after receiving my Masters Degree. I speak German and Russian, too. This knowledge really helps me explain some concepts of English grammar that are common in my students’ native languages.

My teaching experience (+4 years!) includes teaching groups and individuals of different levels. I always prepare individual oriented tests, tasks and texts to read, because I believe that if studying material matched the level, age and interests of the student it makes the learning process easier and more productive.

My methods include authentic audio materials, magazine articles and TV programs. If needed, I adapt them to the level of my students. Using authentic material not only improves the skills, but also helps understand the culture of the country. The most important part of the learning/teaching process for me is the connection between a student and a teacher. the study role-plays and communicative situations was part of my Master's degree research.

That is why I imply the knowledge of psychology, to choose the right pace of learning, emphasis either on visual or audible memory, the amount of new topics introduced. I do like working with children. I always make my classes productive and fun. Thank you for your attention.

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.

Russian

I have majored in Education (Teaching English as a Second /Foreign Language and Linguistics) and started working as an instructor after receiving my Masters Degree.

I speak Russian at the native speaker level. Having a degree in Education and Linguistics helps me to use proper methods of teaching.

Very patient and knowledgeable

Arina was very patient in introducing the German language. I think I left without about thirty or forty vocabulary and a good deal of knowledge about grammar. I'll definitely continue working with her.
