Russian as second language. Learn how to speak in Russian to a high standard

Hello Everyone,
I was born in Saint Petersburg, Russia and moved to the UK in 2018.
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 a 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

Education

Pedagogical college of Nekrasov N.A. - 2008 (teacher of English as a second language)
Lomonosov Moscow State University - October 2019 (teacher of Russian as a second language)

Experience / Qualifications

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.

Ekaterina is a wonderful teacher. Just what was needed!
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."
