I have a Ph.D. in Philology and am a native Russian speaker born in Moscow - the capital of Russia. Therefore, I can apply my knowledge of language methodologies to teach Russian. Also, I have tutored foreign students in Russian for many years already. Russian is my native language and it is one of the most beautiful, amazing languages in the world; it is the language of great writers and poets, actors and artists, philosophers and scientists, musicians and humanists. Besides teaching I held lectures in theory of language, history of language, psycholinguistic, and sociolinguistics. If you are looking for a fun, flexible, and engaging tutor, I am perfect for you. I provide a variety of activities so you will never get bored. For example, I will use fun warm up tasks, games, interactive conversational lessons, and quizzes. We will use authentic materials as well. All materials are provided. You will learn conversational skills, formal writing skills, and test taking strategies all in a fun manner. This course is perfect for beginners to get a basic understanding after several weeks or for advanced speakers who want to brush up on their language skills.

Hello! My name is Yekaterina. I am a language expert, polyglot, and a performing concert pianist. I received Bachelor of Fine Art degree with emphasis on classical piano performance and pedagogy, and later advanced my studies in Cape Town, South Africa. I concider myself an expert in languages, pedagogy and child psychology, with over 20 years of teaching experience. Being a native Russian speaker, I learned English and Spanish (as well as Portuguese, French, Italian and some Mandarin and Japanese) from the ground up, so I understand very well the challenges of learning a language. I have structured a specific approach that incorporates tricks and shortcuts, that worked very well for me. Little things ythat ou can do to bring the language into your everyday life make a big difference in how fast you start speaking... these little things accumulate and make the whole experience of learning a language much easier and more natural. I will be happy to answer any questions you might have, and I am looking forward to teaching you!
