About Me

Hi!
I'm a native Russian speaker, but most importantly, I'm a linguist. I have a diploma from St.-Petersburg State University where I was specifically taught to teach languages. This means that I can explain complicated stuff so that it doesn't look so complicated anymore. Sounds about right, doesn't it?

I'm also a very relaxed, open-minded and easy-going person, which means I like to have a no-stress classroom. I work at my students' pace, I don't rush them and keep the positive vibe throughout the course. Russian is not the easiest language, but who said overcoming challenges can't be fun?

But I'm also a professional, so my lessons are structured and each of them achieves a specific purpose (usually, several, in fact). This means that you will see your progress. You'll remember more words, you'll start building more complex sentences, you'll be able to understand native speakers better. In short, you will learn Russian!

The auxiliary language of my lessons is English and I also speak French and German, but our main focus is Russian (right?), so don't worry if you don't have a high level in those languages. We'll manage!

Looking forward to meeting you!

Education

2003: Saint-Petersburg State University, Department of Philology, Master's diploma with honours.

Alexandra
Native Russian speaker with 3 years of teaching experience :)
I specialize in Russian Tutoring. I am a native speaker, so during the lessons, I pay a lot of attention to pronunciation and speaking. I have a lot of online material available, so next to the exercises in the textbook, we will do extra exercises to practice grammar and vocabulary. Also, after each grammar topic we discuss in the lesson, I will provide you with an overview file, so you don't have to make notes yourself. Last but not least, I will get you familiar with Russian culture that will help you to feel comfortable and avoid awkward situations once you decide to travel to a Russian-speaking country. I find an individual approach to every student and help in achieving the goals.

This course is designed for learners who have no basic knowledge of Indonesian or know a little bit and want to learn more. The course will first give learners the opportunities to repeat some of the basic rules in Indonesian. Afterward, the materials will progress slowly until learners are equipped with the most important structures in Indonesian. In addition, there will be plenty of chances to practice in conversations!

In addition to my Italian language diploma (Master 2), I have been immersed in this language from a young age, which means that I have mastered it perfectly.

I can give grammar lessons as well as pronunciation lessons, oral comprehension, etc. I also offer oral conversation classes for anyone who wants to express themselves in Italian more fluently and improve their oral comprehension of the language.

Cours en ligne. Professeur de FLE diplômée, la technologie au service de l’apprentissage.
LES TECHNOLOGIES AU SERVICE DE L'APPRENTISSAGE. Bonjour, Je m’appelle Laurie et je suis professeur de FLE indépendante, diplômée en Langues et Littératures françaises et romanes depuis 2012. J’ai cinq années d’expérience à mon actif (à l’étranger et en Belgique). J’ai créé LangMethod, méthode d’apprentissage pour les cours en ligne. Le cours inclut: -Le matériel (articles, vidéos, exercices à partir d’images et de textes, théorie grammaticale, liens vers les exercices…). J’utilise google doc, l’idéal est donc d’avoir une adresse gmail pour pouvoir y accéder. -La correction des exercices en dehors du cours (les expressions écrites sont corrigées en dehors du cours, ou avec l’élève, en fonction de ses besoins). -L’accès à une application (gratuitement) pour étudier le vocabulaire sur votre smartphone. -Une fiche de vocabulaire - prononciation - grammaire/conjugaison, envoyée après chaque cours. -Si nécessaire, un enregistrement du vocabulaire (pour les débutants). -La réalisation d’exercices en ligne et de tests à partir des fiches de vocabulaires envoyées. -De la motivation, des rires, de la bonne humeur :-) Ma méthode: -Elle est basée sur l’oral. -Pour la grammaire, j’utilise une méthode question/réponse (apprise lors d’une formation au centre CERAN). -Nous travaillons la prononciation avec la méthode verbotonal (exercices pour poser sa voix, pour la rythmique, etc.). Je te ferai même peut-être chanter! :-) -Tout passe par l’oral avant de passer par l’écrit mais je m’adapte évidemment aux besoins des élèves. -Le cours est un peu différent pour les enfants et adolescents: j’utilise des jeux interactifs et des cartes via la webcam. A bientôt! Laurie NB: Possibilité de faire une facture pour les particuliers ou les entreprises.
