About Elena D.
My name is Elena and I am a firm believer that anyone can learn new languages.
Language is a system which can be hacked with all the necessary tools provided by a teacher. And that is precisely what I am doing during my lessons.
As I have been tutoring for more than 5 years in Russian and English, I have developed my own style: every student requires an individual approach and encouragement to learn autonomously. My lessons are built around students' needs. It can include syllabus, videos, presentations or simply a day-to-day conversation.
I can also describe myself as a tech-savvy person. Implementing new technologies in studying is a part of my teaching process.
I studied Russian with Elena 1 year ago. She is a responsible and thorough person who gives clear instructions and explains everything in understandable manner.
I liked Lena’s motivating approach to lessons. She helped me with IELTS preparation and I ought to give her credit for my high score :)
I took English classes with Elena last year. My aim was to move from Intermediate level to Advanced in order to pass Cambridge Exam. I was happy with the results of our collaboration
I don't usually like to learn foreign languages, especially Russian seemed such a difficult language at first. However, taking classes with Elena made it seem so much more easier and I learnt so much from her. If you want to learn Russian, I highly recommend trying Elena's classes.Show More
I decided to learn Russian language as we have a lot of Russian clients in our travel agency and most of them don't speak English so well. I took classes with Elena for more than a year. She is a wonderful teacher, very patient and her classes are never boring. She gave me the motivation I needed to continue learning until I reached the level desired. I highly recommend Elena as a Russian language teacher.Show More
