This is a class for Russian speakers to learn English.

About Julia
Would you like a Try-Out lesson before booking a package? I understand the hesitation before making an investment, which is why I offer shorter 20 minute lessons specifically for hw help, test prep or just a compatibility check. Send me a message if you are interested - I will be happy to suggest a time frame best for your individual needs!

Whether you are interested in one lesson or a recurring schedule, student satisfaction is extremely important to me.
From my time tutoring at high school learning centers, college tutoring centers, and childhood elementary academies, I have implemented
and developed my own method of teaching for my students, which includes personalized lesson plans, alternative views to math, as well as implementing a visual and contextual approach to unfamiliar subjects with the positive benefit of increasing the student's self-esteem and confidence, and his/her ability to learn efficiently.
I do not only teach what you need to pass your next exam - I teach thoroughly and patiently with the goal of helping you manifest your unrealized potential!

With a Bachelors Degree in Physics and Minor in Math from Hunter College, Julia has over 9 years of experience tutoring students of all ages in all subjects.
Her clients find her patient, professional, courteous, and reliable.
Julia is located in NYC and teaches lessons online and over Skype or FaceTime.

Julia creates her own curriculum which is better than anything my daughters receive in their schools.
I see marked improvements in their grades for this past year, and my eldest is actually skipping fourth grade as a result of lessons. I am astounded as to my girls' progress, and greatly appreciative of our tutor's expertise.
Her patient, methodical approach to teaching is why I see us remaining with her for all of our educational instruction. She has already taught arithmetic to my youngest (3rd grade), and algebra to my eldest (starting 5th this sept!), and is proceeding with more advanced math with no issue whatsoever. I cannot recommend her enough.

I'm in a fast paced trig course at my uni, and we've covered things I never did in high school. I did 5 lessons over skype with Julia, and know I've found a keeper. She sends stuff to practice on in advance and has me work with her like I would with my professor. She comes up with practice based on my weakest areas and never shortens time. I don't even have to ask for review material because she assigns hw to work on, and basically, I'm a master at graphing now.

I did regents prep with Julia for my high school honors physics class back in 2011. I am now back with Julia for my calc-based college physics course! Her teaching style saves the day and I'm already better understanding my course material. She goes over each topic with her own notes and examples. I do what she assigns me first before I move on to my actual hw, and it brings me great results. I feel extremely confident about my upcoming midterms. Thank you!!!

*****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.

*****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.

More recommendations can be provided upon request.

I enjoyed my lesson and look forward to the next ones. Roman located were I was at in my Russian language by asking question. Then used that knowledge as the bases and went from there. Roman used shared video so I could see what notes he was typing then emailed those notes to me in addition to other resources. His explanations were simple, cut and dry. Challenging but not overwhelming!

I have over 5 years of teaching and tutoring experience. I specialize in input-based learning using English print and electronic media. I've published my own web-based English curriculum on my website.

I use SRS (spaced-repetition-software) to help students permanently memorize lots of new English on digital multimedia flashcards.

I help students overcome poor study habits that slow down learning. Every student should be able to learn to speak English like a native speaker in 1-3 years.

My name is Guy, and I have been teaching English as a Foreign Language (EFL) to students and business professionals for 7+ years.

I hold a Bachelor's degree in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL) and a Master's degree in Linguistics. I have taught English to top executives at Yahoo!,
Rakuten, Kobo, Nikkei, DMM, NTT Corp., Yamada-Denki, and more.

As an experienced teacher, I understand how students learn and retain new information.

What's the secret?

The truth is, there isn't any secret. Learning English is very difficult. However, there are two things you must do:

1. Study English every day (listen, speak, read, and write).
Constant exposure is an absolute MUST when it comes to acquiring a new language. I work with each student to create a catered learning program to improve all 4 primary language skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing.

2. Write every day!
The second ‘secret’ to learning a new language is to write—every day. All of my students have notebooks, and they all write daily. It's a simple method, but it works. During our first meeting together, we will discuss how to use writing exercises to improve other areas, such as listening, speaking, reading, and pronunciation.

My students include high school, undergraduate, and graduate students; young children; and adult speakers of all levels.

Whatever your language needs, I have the tools and tactics you need to improve your English and become more fluent.

I also teach drums and acoustic guitar to Beginner and Intermediate students at my home studio in Sebastian, FL.

· ESL · In studio
Teacher Guy taught me English when I first came to the U.S. back in 2014. I was working for a financial company at the time, and my English was so bad that I almost never spoke to my coworkers. What Teacher Guy did for me was deconstruct the language learning process and show me how to learn the English language from the "top down" as a native speaker would. At our first meeting, Teacher Guy explained that this is the way children learn their language. Babies and young children are not taught grammar rules, but they learn grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation in the context. And guess what! It worked for me! By the end of that year, I was so comfortable in my "new skin" that I began speaking during meetings at work and I made friends with many native speakers all thanks to Teacher Guy's lessons. I think Teacher Guy uses a special and highly effective teaching method that combines natural conversation with reading and speaking practice. Teacher Guy gave me a writing assignment every week and it was always enjoyable. He used the writing assignment to measure my progress and teach me better ways to make some expressions. Teacher Guy has an impressive ability to hear pronunciation mistakes and always corrected me in a gentle way. He would say "Can you repeat that again?" not "You said that phrase incorrectly." I would highly recommend Teacher Guy's lessons if you are serious about learning English and becoming a more fluent English speaker.
