Wow Sergey is really great at this! My daughter just turned 5 and is still practicing her headstands against the wall hours later. Sergey's advice to have her 'help' me practice MY stretching is a double win and making her more willing to do her pushups and splits too. We are really looking forward to the next class already. Thank you so much for all the advice and feeback post class too, Sergey!

*****Before you sign up*****

There are three simple things you need to know about my tutoring program.
1. No matter what your reasons for learning a foreign language are, ultimately it's a part of your SELF DEVELOPMENT. Treat it as such.
2. I don't believe in "good or bad with languages" stereotype. I have taught for many years and learnt that everyone is "language talented" when they actually want to speak a new language. And if you are one of them I garantie that my method will work for you.
3. My program might appear quite different from the ones you have tried or seen before and goes beyond simple grammar and vocabulary presentation. Also prepare to be challenged at every step of the way and the further you will get the more fun and exciting it will be.

goes beyond simple grammar and vocabulary presentation. Also prepare to be challenged at every step of the way and the further you will get the more fun and exciting it will be.

*****My Students*****

For over 6 years of professional experience as Russian/French/ESL teacher, I have worked with all types of students with different learning styles and various goals: taught within U.S. public education institutions, provided private classes for children and adults, developed and implemented individualized syllabus for diplomats, high rank executives at multinational companies, employees of U.S. Embassy and Department of State.

Thanks to all my students, current and former, I am now confident that every individual, willing to learn one of the languages I teach, without a doubt, has everything it takes to succeed when the right approach is applied during the learning process and that is when your classes are comprehensible, interesting and engaging.

*****Program features*****

It is one on one program, thouroughtly personalized and organized according to your interests (general and professional), schedule, final goals, learning style and many other important elements to be taken into account.

Each session is 50 minutes.

Every session is prepared to reach a particular goal and structured in the way to have a maximum profit from "teacher - student" part of learning. Supporting materials are sent after each session: grammar notes, retention exercises, homework assignments, audio and video files as phonetic exercises and listening practice. The content of these materials is permanently tested and modified in order to achieve the best way to engage each individual student's language acquisition mechanisms.

Teacher's support 24/7.

Extra curricula content: idiomatic language components, cultural studies (traditions, history, literature, cinema and language related etymology), recommendations for independent language practice.

The way I see it, with each new student - there is a new process in my head that starts and constantly creates and improves techniques, ideas, method components, teaching style e.t.c for getting this particular student to do the best he or she can.

In first session quickly identified areas of improvement. The ball is on my court to complete my homework and get ready to make the most of my time in our next session. He is fast paced when he sees you have command, yet slows down when needed.

As a native speaker I love my language and I will be happy to help you learn it too. During the lessons I try to speak mostly Russian, deliver well structured material and choose relevant topics, so my students would be able to use it in real situations. As a teacher my goal is to figure out how you learn best and make the process more effective and enjoyable.

Her teaching approach is to make the learning process ENJOYABLE. With engaging topics, use of visual aids and technology there is nothing to worry about! She aslo believes in STRUCTURE, which helps present knowledge efficiently. Lastly, a lot depends on your DEDICATION to learn, so HOMEWORK is always there.

She teaches ALL AGES, apply
ing individual approach that fits best with the student. She has BS degree in Economics, so those who want to learn BUSINESS Russian will certainly benefit from it. If you want to read famous CLASSIC literature someday, it’s a great place to start.

I've been teaching Russian for 5 years. Within the first lessons, you'll know alphabet and how to greet people in Russian.
From lesson to lesson you'll increase vocabulary and after a few lessons your knowledge will be enough to read short stories. I use online workbooks, textbooks. I have a list of websites. They let students learn grammar, listen to dialogues, watch movies. I love working with students and can't wait to start this journey through Russian grammar and literature with you.

About Galina
My name is Galina. I am a native speaker of Russian language and a professional teacher. I have 20 years experience of teaching in Russian Schools. First 10 years of my experience was teaching in Elementary School, and next 10 years I was an English and Russian teacher. I hold a bachelor's degree in linguistics and childhood education. I was teaching English as a foreign language to Russian students and have excellent tutoring experience in teaching Russian to English speaking people. I can teach all levels of the Russian language and I am really excited to teach students of any age. I have b
een a teacher all my life and I simply love teaching, because during the process I can see how my students move forward. Tutoring gives me the opportunity to continue doing what I always loved to do. I am a dedicated tutor-strict, but kind. I teach adults and children one-to-one, in groups or online.

I've had only one lesson, yet I am inspired. This is a real teacher of the Russian language. This is more than a person who just speaks the language. Already her technique as a trained teacher can be felt.

Conversation and culture are two things I enjoy when it comes to Russian. I am a native speaker of Russia. Because I have been working with people from many different cultures, I can give you unique cultural insights about Russian language and Russian culture.

About Elena
If you are looking for an experienced and dedicated teacher to help you get high scores on TOEFL or IELTS or to prepare for college admission in the USA, look no more. As a current teacher at an intensive English program in Georgia, USA, I have been teaching grammar, reading, writing, listening, speaking, and test prep to students applying to colleges in English-speaking countries or improving their English to be better qualified for professional growth. I am also pretty comfortable working on more general goals such as daily conversation, US culture, reading for content, etc.

Here is my p
hilosophy of teaching in a very very brief form: I am a big believer in needs analysis and diagnostic. Before any goals are set, it is imperative to understand students' backgrounds, aspirations for their future, and proficiency levels. Additionally, I believe that setting tangible goals drives improvement and increases motivation. Finally, feedback, feedback, feedback! Intonation or vocabulary usage, personalized and specific feedback is what my students get and love.

As far as methodology goes, I am pretty eclectic. Again, methods and approaches are chosen based on students' needs. Sometimes we just have to work on drilling sounds and intonation or some simple grammar concepts like “do/does”, while at other times open conversation is the best way to practice the same content. One key component that doesn’t change is the focus on the student. I work hard on planning my lessons so that my students do most of the work during class. I also strive to contextualize everything around real life by choosing materials that are recent and relevant.
