Russian Language A1 - C2 / Русский язык и литература

Hi All,
thank you for checking out my course.

This class is open to students of all levels. Whether you are only starting to learn the wild-looking letters of the Cyrillic alphabet, or whether you are looking to practise your written and spoken Russian, I would be delighted to accompany you at any stage of your Russian-learning journey. For more advanced students, I would be happy to help you get to know one of the most definiting aspects of the Russian language, namely its novels and poetry, which would be a great way to learn about the 'mysterious' Russian soul.

I believe that studying in three different countries have allowed me to try out and assess various approaches to education in general and teaching languages in particular - from the rigourous Russian system based on ensuring that the students will obtain exceptional spelling, grammar, syntax and punctuation skills, to the more relaxed yet more critical and analytical Western approach, focused on problem-solving and independent work.
There is a vast bank of techniques and methods that will be used in class to peak and maintain your interest. And since I'm a student too, I would be able to share my personal tips and tricks with you to help you reach whatever goal you have set for yourself - be it being able to wow your friends and family by reciting a poem in the language of Dostoyevski, or impressing your future collegues with the thorough knowledge of Russian current affairs in their mother tongue!

About Me

Hi All,

It seems that all too often teachers, especially at public schools, stick to conventional, but sadly somewhat outdated teaching methods, ignoring modern developments in foreign language and culture.

Although this sounds innocent enough, this may have serious consequences for a student. If one sincerely wants to learn a a language, they have most likely considered travelling or perhaps even moving to their target country for a while. However, upon arrival, they might find themselves extremely alienated, unable to connect fully with its residents, which is an absolute nightmare.

But not to worry - as someone who had gone through the 'transition' phase, from a 'foreigner' to a 'pal from Russia', I will strive to go beyond vocabulary exercises, grammar and boring texts, using them as a foundation to assist the student in exploring the multitude of 'faces' of a foreign language, thus ensuring your ability to make long-lasting connections with so beautifully different, yet stunnigly similar folks from other countries.

Experience / Qualifications

Most of my tutoring experience comes from helping friends, classmates and fellow students improve their language skills, be it English, German or Russian. However, as someone who has had a lot of tutors in English and German back in the day, I think I have a pretty good idea of how to structure individual lessons, as well as what goes into curricular planning. That being said, I am quite flexible and would be more than happy to work towards your individual goals in addition to working through more conventional topics.
Hi All! Thank you for checking out my course. I am a native Russian speaker, born and raised in Moscow. After completing middle school in Russia, I had then moved to Scotland and three years later had received the IB Diploma certificate with a score of 36 points. This, as well as my extracurricular achievements in performing arts, had secured me a place at King's College London in the UK. Having studied a variety of subjects at school in Scotland, from English and German literature to Maths, Sciences and Music allowed me to become fluent in English, and achieve mastery of "technical", that is to say, "scientific" English, as well as spoken English and slang. Needless to say that my writing skills have massively improved due to the large number of essays I had to write during my school and then uni career. As I am finishing off my law degree, I am eager to offer my services as an English tutor for those who are thinking of taking up a new language, be it for academic or professional reasons, or simply for fun. I believe that studying in three different countries have allowed me to try out and assess various approaches to education in general and teaching languages in particular - from the rigorous Russian system based on ensuring that the students will obtain exceptional spelling, grammar, syntax and punctuation skills, to the more relaxed yet more critical and analytical Western approach, focused on problem-solving and independent work. There is a vast bank of techniques and methods that will be used in class to pique and maintain your interest. Due to my personal passion for literature, I would love to use extracts from novels and poetry to stimulate the student's creativity and understanding of style, as well as enhance their vocabulary and develop a deeper appreciation for the language. And since I'm a student too, I would be able to share my personal tips and tricks with you to help you reach whatever goal you have set for yourself!

Christophe
French: written/oral expression, grammar, conversation
Do you want to start learning French but have never learnt it before? Or maybe you want to perfect your understanding of French grammar, or your capacity to express yourself clearly, spontaneously and with confidence in French? Or work on pronunciation, perhaps improve your accent and learn more about French culture? I can help you with all of these, and not only because I was born and raised in France: after getting my Master's Degree in Lingustics and Anthropology from the School for Advanced Research in Paris - at the time I was also teaching private classes of French and English to high school and university students - I moved to the UK and studied theatre at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. There I worked on the skills any speaker needs to communicate clearly and convincingly: diction, voice projection, etc. These two approaches - linguistics, and theatre work - give me a strong foundation from which to help any student learn French. So jump on: we'll build a learning program tailored to your needs and make sure that the lessons are both dense and fun.

Liudmila
Becoming Fluent in English (A2 - C2). Flawless, Conversational, and Natural Language
I am an accomplished tutor with 12 years experience and a PhD in Linguistics. Teaching English is undoubtedly my vocation. My vast experience enables me to develop students' confidence, improve their spoken English and prepare them for the Cambridge English exams. My university majors were English Linguistics, Pedagogy and Psychology of High School. I am currently pursuing a BA in North American Studies at Free University of Berlin. Studies are extremely interesting and challenging, and I'm pleased to share with students materials from English courses and my knowledge of US history. During my English classes I focus on intensive language practice and speaking fluency. Firstly, we will pay attention to grammatical and lexical gaps, learn to analyze speech and use less "simple" words, that is, we will enlarge the vocabulary with proper synonyms (C1-C2 level). Besides, we will gradually introduce idioms into speech and use complex grammatical constructions. After and during each lesson I write down a lesson protocol in Google Docs, including all the material, texts, and proofreading. It goes without saying, I guarantee a responsible approach, frequency and intensity of lessons.

Fun but instructive French Lessons - online, at your location or at my location
French is a hard language to learn even for us french. My class is meant to teach French without getting bored. I’m confident that anyone can learn French independently of age, everything is about method. For infants and preschool children French can be introduced through games, enriching their vocabulary. For children and teenagers I like to do classes mixing both games and more conventional teaching (grammar). This way they learn and practice french while never getting bored. I want French to be fun. I am native French and lived in Paris my whole life until this year. I’ve always taught French to English students from my school (American school of paris) so I have experience in that field.
