I am a native Russian speaker and love utilizing my knowledge of Russian language, history, and culture to help people to learn Russian language.At my lessons, I have creativity and do my best to build an exciting and interesting learning experience. In practice I utilize interactive teaching methods and activities to motivate students to learn and communicate in a foreign language. I often use visual aids, such as software tools or videos and make students feel that learning a foreign language is fun and interesting. I believe culture is a crucial concept in language teaching, in a certain sense language learning is culture learning. So my lessons always include a basic cultural section where I introduce culture and customs to the students.

Harrisonburg, VA

I have been teaching Russian for more than fifteen years at all levels from middle school to graduate students and native speakers. I incorporate a variety of materials from
contemporary Russian culture (or other areas of content based on student interest) in order to create a relevant and authentic language learning experience.

About Rachel
I have a PhD in Russian and a BA in Spanish. I have taught both languages at many levels, from middle school through to graduate school. As a college student I lived and worked in Moscow, Russia as a security guard at the US Embassy, where I learned lots of unusual vocabulary in Russian related to items that could be picked up by the metal detector. I have also spent time studying and conducting research in Siberia and in St. Petersburg, Russia. I have lived, studied and traveled throughout Mexico, and taught public school Spanish and French for two years prior to graduate school. I am originally from Virginia, and before I started studying Russian in high school, I was planning to be a professional classical pianist. I live in Central Virginia now with my husband and our adorable but very demanding English bulldog, Lou. I am a member and
the Conference Manager for the American Association of Teachers of Slavic and East European Languages, and have taught Russian at the University of Richmond, the University of Virginia, Northern Virginia Community College, and Ferrum College. I regularly publish and present research at conferences in the field of Russian language teaching as well. I am a kind and merciful teacher, but require commitment and dedication from my students. You WILL learn from me, but you have to work too!

I am a native speaker of Russian and I've had experience teaching English and German languages as well. I love Russian language and literature, and my background in Literature and Journalism provides me with huge resources on finding examples and approaches tailored to the interests of each individual student. I believe that Russian is not scary or extraordinarily difficult, and there are a lot of fun ways to memorize and practice various tricks and grammar rules that stand on our way as learners. My goal is for the students to enjoy the lessons and gain as much knowledge about Russian language and culture as possible!

About Polina
I am a fourth-year student at Brown Univeristy, and I come from Moscow, Russia. I have worked as a tutor of English back home, and I was a German Language Teaching Assistant at Brown last semester, which was really rewarding and challenging and taught me the main thing about language learning - practice! I focus more on the conversational aspects of Russian language, the use of idioms and sayings, jargon, all of it being crucial in everyday conversation. Listening to podcasts and contemporary music, watching internet memes and short videos, reading news reports - I find these methods of improving your language skills to be the most valuable in teaching practice, and the most interesting to most students, because they create an immersion into the everyday life of Russia today.
Despite that I study Philosophy, I have a great passion for Rus
sian Literature since my teenage years, and my greatest crushes are Dostoevsky and Chekhov, not mentioning those 20th century classics, such as Bulgakov, Pasternak, or Brodsky. Russian and Soviet cinema is also incredibly rich and powerful, and I am interested in discussing Russian history as it has been portrayed and thought using the power of the screen.

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
As a current teacher at an intensive English program in Georgia, USA, I have taught grammar, reading, writing, listening, and speaking to students raging from 18 to 60 years old. Most of my current students are preparing to apply to colleges in English-speaking countries or are improving their English to be better qualified for professional growth. Due to the nature of what I am doing now, I am very comfortable working with students who have academic and professional goals such preparation for TOEFL or IELTS, practice for business presentations, or technical writing. However, I am also pretty comfortable working on more general goals such as daily conversation, US culture, reading for content, etc.

Here is my philosophy of teaching in a very very brief form: I am a big believer in needs analysis and diagnostic. Before any goals are s
et, it is imperative to understand students' backgrounds, aspirations for the 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.

I'm Brazilian and the structure of Portuguese language is very different than English, which is what makes learning it hard for me. However, Lena is one of the best English teachers I have ever had - she helped me a lot. She is very focused and organized, and makes you think and express yourself with challenging issues and activities. She is a very enthusiastic teacher, which makes the classes and lessons even better. In addition to being an excellent teacher, she is a very nice person. Thanks, Lena, I wish you the best!
