English Language - Writing, Speaking, Listening Comprehension
Can learning English be fun, insightful, productive and effective at the same time? I believe so! Whatever your background or profession, deciding to learn a foreign language is a great way to add another dimension to your life and make your mind work in a new way. You become a (slightly) different person, since along with a new language, one learns to look at the world in a slightly different way. This is why my approach to teaching English is not only aimed at laying or strengthening the foundational knowledge - grammar, speaking, writing and listening skills, but also at introducing students to the culture of the English-speaking population. We will find out what English speakers find funny, what drives them to tears, what makes them feel proud and what they get embarrassed about. Open to students of all levels, my course usually is taught online, using a variety of visual aids and a wide range of material, from textbooks to YouTube videos. In teaching advanced learners, I often refer to pieces of literature such as novels and poems, since they easily spark discussions, which in turn improves the students' grasp and feel of the language. In doing so, I take students beyond ordinary textbooks and grammar books, since they are no more than guides to learning, not absolute authorities, and because to me language is a living, constantly evolving matter, which you must submerge yourself into in order to understand. In addition to my unorthodox approach, what sets me apart is a collection of unique, language-related experiences, which translate into a good ability to understand nuances of the English language. A native Russian speaker, I have lived in the UK for over 5 years, went to a Scottish boarding school and have even completed a university degree in English. Thanks to my linguistic and cultural competency, I will make sure that you are never lost in translation! Are you interested? Then contact me today!

French and English lessons for all levels + preparation for the GCSE
As a recent graduate from a Master degree in teaching English, with 5 years of experience tutoring French children and students privately. During my two years of master, I taught English to secondary school students. The theory and the practise, allowed me to develop my teaching skills and through tutoring I have learned to tailor my teaching methods to the student’s needs. Moreover, throughout my years of tutoring, I could gave back the confidence that students were lacking in their education, which led to one of my students to obtain her “brevet” equivalent of the English GSCE with a high grade. The success was hinged through the learning material that I created. Indeed, I produced my own lesson plans and I provided weekly progress homework.

Learn to confidently speak English - lessons can be in French, Urdu and Hindi
As someone who can speak 5 languages fluently, I have over the years grasped the best way to efficiently learn new languages. I have experience working in 2 primary schools, where I had the opportunity to observe other teachers and learn from good practice. Being a firm believer that everyone has a different way of learning, I will urge students to let me know in advance their desired way of learning so I can prepare curated lessons just for them to make the most of our lectures. As a future lawyer, I have experience in advocacy, mooting, public speak and will work towards making students feel comfortable in speaking English.

Excel in English - A Class for everyone trying to learn english
Living in England could really be complicated if you are bad at english. The key to improvising yourself and socialising with others is communication. From job interviews to casual chats, english is an unavoidable requirement in all our day today life. Communication skill is always the best way to impress someone and also to get involved with them. This course will lift you from whichever state you are in english and improve your linguistic skills to a western level. My experience in teaching IELTS sessions to students of different age groups (most of them elder than me), has helped me take my classes in appropriate ways for the particular age group present in my class. When it comes to one on one classes, it would be a more easy and interactive session, which helps in improving the student’s linguistic skills to a whole new level.
