Enrique speaks very clearly and enunciates well, which as a language learner is very important to me. He is also very easy to talk to and kept redirecting me back into the target language when I would drift out. I was very nervous to have an hour lesson because I wasn't sure that I could stay in the target language that long, but it flew by and he answered all of my questions. He is very clear to explain what you are struggling with and makes sure that you can actually use it once you are taught it. He even engaged my child in conversation when he was curious to see what I was doing. Looking forward to becoming more fluent!

About Valentina
• Russian native speaker
• Professional proficiency in English and German
• Familiar with Romanian and Turkish language
• Experienced instructor
• Able to plan and organize a classroom curriculum
• Able to communicate and coordinate with a wide range of individuals

Hello, my name is Valentina. I'm a Russian and German teacher.

German

I specialize in teaching German at the High School level. I earned a Bachelor’s degree in German and spent a year working and studying in Munich, Germany. I then found work in a private school and instructed over one hundred students. I have since continued tutoring individually specializing with online lessons.

My goal is to improve my students’ language skill through conversation and I push my students to speak German from the first lesson. I believe this helps students gain fluency an
d lose their fear of making mistakes while speaking. No one can be perfect in a month but the student needs to be comfortable enough with grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation so that they can communicate in German and improve through conversation and dialog.

My youngest students were 6 years old and I have also taught older students. I enjoy working with children and am fascinated by how quickly young students can learn and grasp languages. Especially when learning is incorporated in a game where a student can passively learn to use new vocabulary as a tool to win a game among others. I am very grateful for all my students and the wide variety of experiences that I have had interacting with them.

Russian

I am an experienced language teacher. My experience is teaching German as a second or third language to Russian and Romanian speakers, but since I am a native Russian speaker I can use what I have learned teaching German to teach Russian.

My teaching philosophy is to learn through practice. Everyone makes mistakes and part of learning a new language is overcoming the fear of making mistakes and being willing to work through errors to convey an idea or thought. People learn a language best when they use it as a tool to achieve a goal.

I am a native Russian speaker and I have studied Russian since elementary school. I graduated from Chishinau university, where 40% of the courses are taught in Russian including Russian grammar and literature. I have taught private courses as a German teacher, to Russian speakers, and therefore I have experience explaining Russian grammar and conversation. I have a deep appreciation for Russia’s literary heritage and am constantly reading classic Russian texts.

I have experience teaching online Russian language to English students. My materials are adapted to English speakers and my beginner students are excited and able to engage in Russian small talk within 6-8 lessons. My lessons are efficient, well planned and productive.

I’ll teach you spelling and grammar rules, I’ll extend you vocabulary and we will always be practicing and reviewing previously learned the material. I help encourage my students to study Russian. With me, you will smoothly move from a beginner to more advanced. I create a low stress and efficient learning environment.

I enjoy working with children but also find it rewarding to work with motivated adults. I am looking forward to working with you.

“I've tried to learn English for a long time and, though I learned a big amount of words , I wasn't able of having a short conversation with nobody. Teacher Beverly have been making a great job by identifying my difficulties and then working hard straight on it at abslutely enjoyable online classes. I'm really happy because in a few time I've improved my English skills as I've never did before, nevertheless I'm sure that there are so much to be learnt from her yet.”

About Efraín
I'm from Venezuela and besides being a Spanish tutor I'm also a former journalist who loves traveling. I've spent long periods of time in Spain, Ireland and The United States, and have also visited The Netherlands, France, Germany, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Slovakia, Lithuania, Russia, China and Hong Kong. For the last 5 years I've been living in Medellin, Colombia, where thanks to a vibrant expat community I have met great people from all over the world while helping them learn Spanish.

I hold certifications by International House and the University of Cambridge (TKT) to teach Spanish and English, respectively. I have gained experience in teaching English in Dublin, Ireland, where I spent 8 months as a student, and then in Texas, USA, where I volunteered to teach Spanish and English to children and adults for about 5 months. I'm always
curious about my students' culture and lifestyle.

I share documents and other materials with each student, and during the first session I assess the student's level in terms of pronunciation, vocabulary and structure. Depending on the results and what the student needs, I will vary the amount of material on speaking, listening, reading and writing skills, as well as the topics to be covered. I will also try to focus mostly on words, sentence patterns, and phrases that are frequently used from a situational point of view.

I am a professional writer and teacher of English and Spanish. I graduated from University of California, Davis, with a degree in Political Science and Economics.

I just finished a year and a half service in the PeaceCorps teaching both English and Spanish in the Dominican Republic. I taught advanced grammar lessons to native Spanish speakers. I, also, taught basic english (and a bit of advanced english) to all ages.

My service taught me how to care for a student's needs and the patience to show how each sentence needs to be grammatically structured. I love teaching both languages through conversation as it is the most natural way of learning how to speak a different language.

I have a passion for teaching languages and I hope you will highly consider me as a spanish/english instructor!
