Hello, I’m Natalia! I was born and raised in Russia but currently live and work in the United States. I have 10 years of teaching experience at the university back in Russia and now I’m working online educating students all over the world. I’m very dedicated in helping my students achieve their language goals. I focus on conversational language because I believe this is a primary language function. On our lessons we'll learn grammar constructions, listen to audio files, read texts and do lots of talking! Please don’t hesitate to ask me any questions about my lessons and hope to meet you soon!
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.
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 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 am in love with teaching languages. Being a Russian native speaker, I can help students to understand this subject deeper and to concentrate more on speaking practice which is very important in learning language. I've been teaching Russian as a second language for more than 10 years.
Interactive lessons to help you speak with more confidence. A blend of culture and language to integrate the learning within the context. If you are in New York we can visit Russian stores and events to have a more immersive experience. If you are interested in music we will add this as our subject to learn the language. If literature is your passion we can work on small stories or larger works of literature and discuss particular use of words and expressions. The classes are tailored to your needs. Please tell me why you are learning the language in your introduction.
Teaching conversation and translation at native and highest levels. I am a native speaker of the Russian language, a professional musician with perfect pitch and thus no accent in my speaking. I am also equally fluent in English and have been hosting radio programs spanning over 10 years. I have given talks in both languages internationally and have been published by Carol Publishing as well as Genet Publishing in newspapers, on line, in print both soft and hard cover available in Barns and Noble, Amazon and anywhere fine books are sold. If you are learning to speak in the Russian language or if you are improving your skills, if you are a singer working on enunciation and the feeling of the language for writing, speaking or singing - you have come to the right place. My family of professional musicians have helped orchestras and choir in the production of Alexander Nevsky on the big screen in concert of the Eastman Theater that to this day continues to illicit fond memories in the thousands of people who witnessed an American choir singing beautifully and expressively as native Russians with the orchestra. Some of the most amazing literature and poetry is in the Russian language. Feeling its music and beauty is a gift to be cherished. Such memories and moments in life are so rewording! Translating to my friends and family the movies we watched together is more precious than even a photograph. I would like to help you reach such moments in your life and to be comfortable in your speaking and reading if you wish. The lessons or conversational and easygoing. Like friends meeting over a cup of coffee or tea. If that interests you, please don't hesitate to contact me. I look forward to working with you!
