    English Language - Writing, Speaking, Listening Comprehension

    Hi All!

    Thank you for checking out my course.

    I am a native Russian speaker, born and raised in Moscow. After completing the middle school in Russia, I 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.

    Currently, though, I am on my year abroad in Germany as a part of my LLM, and 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 peak 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!

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    It seems that all too often teachers, especially at public schools, stick to conventional, but sadly somewhat outdated teaching methods, ignoring modern developments in foreign language and culture.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

    Education

    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. 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!

    Santiago
    Clases virtuales conversacionales en inglés para todas las edades y todos los niveles
    Hola, Mi nombre es Santiago y estoy ofreciendo clases virtuales de inglés individuales y personalizadas para mejorar tanto su comunicación oral como escrita. El enfoque principal de mis clases se centra en desarrollar una comunicación del idioma inglés de manera fluida y estructurada ya sea para preparar exámenes internacionales, incluyendo el TOEFL y el FCE, o como para poder comunicarse adecuadamente en el ámbito profesional, o para reforzar y mantener el conocimiento previo de este idioma. Soy Licenciado, graduado en Florida Gulf Coast University en los E.E. U.U. Habiendo aprendido inglés desde chico en el Ivy Thomas Memorial School y vivido año y medio en Tailandia, seguido de 4 años en E.E. U.U. adquirí gran conocimiento y fluidez del idioma inglés. En Tailandia estuve año y medio estudiando arte en la comunicación y esto me ayudó a prepararme para mis estudios en E.E. U.U. Tuve varias clases de comunicación, aprendiendo técnicas de cómo hablar mejor usando no solo nuestras palabras, sino también nuestro cuerpo para ayudarnos a hablar de manera más natural, tranquila y sin ponernos nerviosos si nos trabamos o nos olvidamos de lo que queríamos decir. Durante mi carrera en los E.E. U.U. estuve constantemente escribiendo ensayos para mis clases, además de tener que exponer proyectos delante de mis profesores y compañeros de clase. Al mismo tiempo, estuve trabajando en la universidad y luego de graduado trabajé durante un año, principalmente teniendo largas conversaciones por teléfono con personas de todo el país. Hoy en día la habilidad para comunicarse en inglés es imprescindible y los voy a preparar para que puedan cumplir sus objetivos. Podrá ser, el de estudiar en el extranjero, irse a vivir a un país de habla inglesa, mejorar la comunicación en el ámbito profesional o practicar para no perder el nivel previamente adquirido. Si lo que estás buscando es mejorar tus conocimientos del idioma inglés, yo te voy a ayudar. Mi metodología es simple. Cada persona es diferente y adapto el contenido de mis clases a las necesidades e intereses de mis alumnos. Todos aprendemos de distintas maneras y en tiempos distintos, por eso es que diseño mis clases de manera individual.

    Private lessons in math, physics and English.
    If you want to improve your understanding of math and science and their applications in the real world, or if you need help in English, look no further. I study engineering at the Technical University of Berlin and am also a pianist, singer and writer. Why me? I have been teaching for 3 years and have helped many students find their way through the maze of math. In my experience, it is a lack of knowledge of the basic building blocks of the subject, combined with, in some cases, poor teaching and poor teachers that lead students to believe in the idea that math, physics, or English is difficult. It sure isn't! In my teaching I will offer active, example-based teaching where learners discover the answers for themselves as opposed to written learning. I teach with incredible passion, and I don't do this to pass the time. I am deeply in love with the subjects I teach, be it math, physics, or English, and it hurts me a lot when I see people shy away from math or speak poor English. My acquaintances will testify to me that I have a constant need to look for and correct mistakes in grammar that might be made. This is my way of using this urge. What can you expect from me and my classes? 1. Lessons in two languages - German and English. I can use German at level DSH2 / C1.2. I attended the preparatory college at the TU Berlin, where I learned German for academic and scientific purposes. This is the need of the hour, and certain university-level programs require students to be fluent in both German and English: for example, the engineering program at TUM. This is a skill that is worthwhile. Note: English classes are held entirely in English. 2. Help with homework and concepts covered in school - this helps further deepen the concepts taught and helps students build a strong foundation. 3. Help you prepare for specific tests or exams. 4. Revising concepts taught in previous classes - students generally tend to forget what they were taught a year earlier. This, in turn, makes them unable to understand more complicated material that is required of them as they progress. These are practically skipped in school on the assumption that the student knows them from earlier. These are some of the subtleties we will delve into in depth. 5. English - Help with grammar and other subtleties of the language and literature. Understanding and analyzing a story or a poem. Help in writing coherent, grammatically correct texts, paying attention to pronunciation. I am sure that I can leave a lasting impression on the students. I look forward to hearing from you.
