Omsk State Pedagogical University (Applied Linguistics)
Since receiving my BA in Applied Linguistics and graduating magna cum laude from Omsk State Pedagogical University, professional growth has been one of my top priorities. My CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) from Cambridge ESOL led me into corporate ESL teaching.
Further continuing my professional development, I received a TKT (Teaching Knowledge Test) certificate from Cambridge ESOL. While teaching, I also pursued a career in translation. Combining my experience with and knowledge of English and Russian, I became a certified translator after completing a Translation Studies course at the University of Chicago. This gave me even greater insight into designing tailored courses and accompanying tests for my students.
I use the communicative approach most of the time, but I do believe that different learners may require different teaching methods. I would be happy to discuss which approach or combination would suit you best. Please do not hesitate to contact me at your earliest convenience to find out how my experience and love of foreign languages will help you in achieving your goals.

Tatiana is amazing and patient with my very rough Russian. Her approach is broad, enjoyable and based on excellent techniques. I would highly recommend her lessons to anybody interested in improving their russian
Tatiana understood what my specific needs were right away, and knew exactly what to do to help me. The homework she gave me is also very relevant. Great first lesson!
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.
I am a native speaker of Russian with a BA in Applied Linguistics. My 10 years of RFL (Russian as a Foreign Language) experience include teaching grammar, vocabulary, conversation, and exam preparation courses. I have taught students of various ages and levels (Beginner to Advanced). Depending on the students' goals, I either choose a primary course book or compile materials from a variety of sources to enable the students to practice Russian as much as possible.
