English and Russian as second languages. Learn how to speak in English or Russian to a high standard

Hello Everyone,
I was born in Saint Petersburg, Russia and moved to the UK in 2018. I have been teaching English for more than 10 years. In 2008 I got a degree in teaching and since then I've helped various students to pass their state exams and generally get better at speaking English. I've worked in Petersburg cadet corps and in a language school the English express where I taught both teenagers and adults of different levels starting from the beginner to upper-intermediate.
At my classes I love coaching my students through talking to them about interesting topics and setting challenging tasks and ambitious goals for them. I really enjoy setting stretching targets for my students and helping them achieve their goals whether it is working abroad, moving to an English or Russian-speaking country or exams.
The most important thing for me as a teacher is to see my students speak. When we do speaking exercises, I usually write my students’ mistakes down in order to discuss them later. This way of correcting mistakes makes my students more relaxed because they are not interrupted while they are speaking.
Over the years I have developed and fine tuned my own 9 point plan to make our classes more effective. The 9 point plan includes:
• Speaking the language you learn every lesson
• Listening to engaging audio materials
• Learning how practical grammar works and how locals use it
• Expanding vocabulary every lesson
• Learning correct sentence building
• Reading fluently and confidently
• Learning how to communicate the way that locals do
• Learning to pronounce like the locals
• Building confidence in all the above using discussions and role-plays

Experience / Qualifications

Over 11 years
Throughout my practice I’ve had lots of students who didn’t feel comfortable enough when speaking a foreign language. In order to help them to overcome their fear, I try to create a relaxing and friendly atmosphere.
If my students are not comfortable in groups, they are always welcome to have individual classes instead where they will feel comfortable.

My son says: "She's incredibly passionate. She's great at kindly explaining where and why you went wrong and how to improve. She's very aware of what the GCSE entails and is tailoring her tuition accordingly; she has plenty of really good resources."

Mark
Real Teacher Holder of Education, author of textbook (language & phonology) 23 years of experience offers neck
* Training linguist and author of textbook as such. => I am not a student in L1 who had a good grade in the Baccalaureate. I am a practicing, qualified teacher and holder of National Education. Teaching can not be improvised. This is something I feel I do well with 23 years of experience. I remind parents that to have 10/20 to the Baccalaureate, just have the level A2 (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd) so I let you imagine the despair of engineering students who must get at least 750 to the TOEIC! It's the equivalent of level B2!) * Daily monitoring possible via internet. * Each course gives rise to a detailed report. * In-depth knowledge of the European Framework. (A1 => C2) * Work of language activities. * Specialized in "phonology": intonation, word accent, links ... The grammar of the oral. * Adaptation to all levels: => College - High school: beginner, false beginner ... => Post-baccalaureate: TOEIC preparation, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First Certificate, Advanced Certificate. => Oral and writings of the grandes écoles such as ENA => Oral and written business schools (Tremplin-Passerelle ...) => Engineering school: preparation for TOIEC.

I re-read, correct and translate your documents in these three working languages. With eight years of experience in teaching English, German and French, I had the opportunity to work with students of all ages (from 7 to 55 years) and of any nationality. , at a beginner level as advanced. In particular, I taught French and English for a year in a German high school, while working as a DELF examiner at the Institut français de Mainz. I give private lessons of conversation, grammar, version, theme and foreign culture, but also more courses for students in difficulty. Passionate about my work, I particularly like to help students with difficulties in their schooling and strive, as much as possible, to adapt to the needs and personality of my students to enable them to overcome their blockages and the obstacles that stand in their way. Do not hesitate to contact me for more information or to schedule a first appointment. :)

English for beginners , learn to speak english with me via webcam
English is a West Germanic language that was first spoken in early medieval England and is now a global lingua franca. Named after the Angles, one of the Germanic tribes that migrated to England, it ultimately derives its name from the Anglia (Angeln) peninsula in the Baltic Sea. It is closely related to the Frisian languages, but its vocabulary has been significantly influenced by other Germanic languages, particularly Norse (a North Germanic language), as well as by Latin and Romance languages, especially French. English is the third most widespread native language in the world, after Standard Chinese and Spanish. It is the most widely learned second language and is either the official language or one of the official languages in almost 60 sovereign states. There are more people who have learned it as a second language than there are native speakers. English is the most commonly spoken language in the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia, Ireland and New Zealand, and it is widely spoken in some areas of the Caribbean, Africa and South Asia. So as you can see we widely need to speak english in nowadays , it's necessary once you are abroad and don't speak the language of the country . Let's start together to learn english , step by step we'll achieve to highest result. I am experienced french teacher , but I also teach english for beginners , armenian , russian and dutch for beginners . I am waiting for you my lovely students
