I am a professional online teacher and tutor of the Russian language.
I am a native Russian speaker currently living in Saratov, Russia.
At the moment I am teaching Russian online (mostly via Skype).
My target groups are both Russian and English-speaking students.
Ages vary from Elementary schoolchildren to working adults.
I have been providing extensive Russian courses for over 10 years, both at school and online.
I pursued my Master's degrees (cum laude) in both Russian and International relations, with a strong focus on Teaching and Translation. I have an honors degree from the Saratov State University (Russia), 2007.
As a teacher, I stress the importance of learning the basics (cursive handwriting, noun and adjective endings, proper use of the cases etc.).
I also aim to create a safe and comfortable environment, in which students are not afraid to communicate in Russian, or ask questions.
Depending on the amount of time I will be working with students, their dedication and current level of understanding of Russian, I can advance their skills greatly. I have taught students with no prior knowledge of the language, and students with basic knowledge.
I love to travel and learn about other cultures, particularly English-speaking ones. Particularly, I have lived and worked in the United States for two years (back in 2005-06) which lifted my English speaking skills to proficiency.
