About Alla

I'm originally from Ukraine. I'm very a very friendly and easy-going person and I will be glad to teach you Russian. I believe the main reasons to learn Russian are:

1. Russian is still widely used in all post-Soviet countries such as Ukraine, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, etc. Russian is spoken by hundreds of millions of people in the world.

2. Russian is an important language for science and technology. According to a recent study, the number of publications in the sciences is highest for English, with Russian second. This is the case for chemistry, physics, geology, mathematics, and biological sciences.

3. Learning Russian you can also learn about one of the world’s most fascinating cultures. Moreover - Russians have translated almost the whole world literature into Russian!

I have Master's Degree in Linguistics from the Taras Shevchenko National Kyiv University. I have taught at Ukrainian schools for more than 10 years and can tutor all levels of Russian learners. I have also experience of teaching languages via Skype. At the present I'm trying to master the technique of teaching Russian to foreigners so my prices at the beginning tend to be reasonable. But my strong wish to reach a good results with my students plus their efforts will sure help achieve the goal.

In my practice I use Russian textbooks for foreigners such as Let's go! Poekhali!, etc. (I have them in pdf). The first book of these series is designed for beginners. Following the course I teach my students pronunciation, oral skills, grammar. I always add my own materials - at the early stage it's Russian fairy-tales or cartoons with tapescript. This is a good basis for discussion, role play and learning Russian culture. At the intermediate and advanced level it can be some extracts from Russian literature or movies. Combining homework and lessons I create a proper language learning environment.
