English Language - Writing, Speaking, Listening Comprehension

Can learning English be fun, insightful, productive and affordable at the same time? I believe so!

Whatever your background or profession, deciding to learn a foreign language is a great way to add another dimension to your life and make your mind work in a new way. You become a (slightly) different person, since along with a new language, one learns to look at the world in a slightly different way. This is why my approach to teaching English is not only aimed at laying or strengthening the foundational knowledge - grammar, speaking, writing and listening skills, but also at introducing students to the culture of the English-speaking population. We will find out what English speakers find funny, what drives them to tears, what makes them feel proud and what they get embarrassed about.

Open to students of all levels, my course usually is taught online, using a variety of visual aids and a wide range of material, from textbooks to YouTube videos. In teaching advanced learners, I often refer to pieces of literature such as novels and poems, since they easily spark discussions, which in turn improves the students' grasp and feel of the language. In doing so, I take students beyond ordinary textbooks and grammar books, since they are no more than guides to learning, not absolute authorities, and because to me language is a living, constantly evolving matter, which you must submerge yourself into in order to understand.

In addition to my unorthodox approach, what sets me apart is a collection of unique, language-related experiences, which translate into a good ability to understand nuances of the English language. A native Russian speaker, I have lived in the UK for over 5 years, went to a Scottish boarding school and have even completed a university degree in English. Thanks to my linguistic and cultural competency, I will make sure that you are never lost in translation! Are you interested? Then contact me today!

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It seems that all too often teachers, especially at public schools, stick to conventional, but sadly somewhat outdated teaching methods, ignoring modern developments in foreign language and culture.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

The lesson went well. Ilia was very professional and gave me enough information but didn't overwhelm with it. Can't wait for a second lesson.
Having difficulties analysing poems and prose in your (I) GCSE / IB English Literature course? Looking to amp your essays up a notch and finally get that A/A* or 6/7 that you have been dreaming of? I am here to help. The first thing to remember: though analysing works of literature isn't always fun, everybody can master the techniques of how to do it. But learning takes time, which the school teacher may often lack. Indeed, it has been my own experience that English teachers often choose width over depth, and so discussions are cut short for the sake of covering all elements of the teaching programme, leaving many interesting aspects of a particular work unexplored. Or sometimes it's just the attention that wanders off as the teacher is explaining these pesky concepts of "writer's voice", "writer's tone", "meter", "rhymescheme" and so on. Let me assure you: that, too, happens even to the best of us. What I can offer you is exactly what a teacher normally does not time for: exploring a work of literature in as much detail (both analytical and technical) as it takes to push the quality of your essays up to the desired level. My approach is informed by IB / (I)GSCE Eng Lit course guidelines to make sure that the quality of your answer would be developed in accordance with what examiners want to see. Armed with a deep passion for literature on the one hand (reading and writing poems and short stories are one of my favorite things to do) and knowledge of ways of critical analysis (obtained in IB English Lit and reinforced by philosophy courses on university level) which are of tremendous importance in literary analysis as well, I will show you how to deconstruct any piece, how to place it in its cultural context, and make educated guesses about the links between cultural context and the author's choice of stylistical devices. And best of all - unlike in the classroom, the learning experience is tailored to you (based on your way of learning / remembering) and delivered in a highly interactive way! The skills described above, coupled with general essay writing tips will lend authority and style to your summative essays and exam answers, boosting your academic confidence. Ready to leave unsatisfactory essays in the past? Then contact me today!
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 defining 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!

Abolaji
A remote & onsite Arabic class where students can learn speaking, writing & reading. It's also a class where Quran and Islamic Studies are taught.
Hello! My name is Abolaji Abdrahman, from Nigeria. I have studied Arabic language (including reading, writing, listening and speaking skills). I also studied Quran & it's sciences, Tajweed, and other Islamic studies for more than fourteen years. I have studied Arabic from the International Open University and Arabic Institute. Currently, I'm also an Undergraduate student of Islamic Studies Education in the University of Lagos, Akoka. I also study under the tutelage of Sheikh Raslān from Egypt. I am a tutor of modern standard Arabic, classical Arabic (the language of Quran and Hadith) and colloquial Arabic ('āmiyyah). I love teaching Arabic because it is a very important language of Islam. Prophet Muhammad S.A.W said we should love Arabic language because: he is an Arabic, the holy Quran is in Arabic language and the language of the paradise dwellers is Arabic. I also love teaching Arabic language because it is the fifth most spoken language in the world. It is the official language of 26 countries including 5 of the wealthiest countries in the world. And it's sixth most spoken language in the world. Learning such a language will avail you to the discovery of most interesting cultures in today's world. It will also look good in your resume. With Arabic language, you'll become a polyglot and you will be able to adapt to the environments of Arab. As a Muslim, with Arabic language, you'll have thorough understanding of Quran and Sunnah. I have been tutoring Arabic and Islamic Studies since 2014 both online and offline till date. I tutor the learners between the ages of 5 - 80. The focus of my instruction is on all the important skills of the language (reading, writing, listening and speaking), grammar and vocabulary development. With these, you'll be able to intermingle with Arabic speaking people in any Arab environment you find yourself and of course, you'll have yourself prepared and fit for any formal exam. I am also certified to instruct in the memorization of Quran, the sciences of Quran like different versions of Quranic recitation (riwāyāt), the exegesis of Quran (tafsīr), e.t.c I have syllabus and materials for tutoring Arabic efficiently within a period of six to twelve months. I'm well experienced in tutoring with these books: ➡️ I love Arabic ➡️ Lessons in Arabic language ➡️ Nūrul bayān ➡️ Iqrā' qirā'tī ➡️ Qā'idāh Nūrāniyyah ➡️ Qā'idāh Makkiyyah ➡️ Qā'idāh Baghdādiyyah ➡️ Arabic in your hands ➡️ Tuhfatul Atfāl ➡️ Exegesis of Ibn Kathīr e.t.c I also have experience in teaching English language and Philosophy. Learning English language helps in developing ideas and communicating them. I would be glad to be your tutor in this journey, choose me and you will not regret it. See you in my class! I have 7 years of teaching experience. I'm a certified Arabic and English teacher. I have TESL and simplified Arabic certification. My teaching method is philosophical, experimental and persuasive. My teaching approach is simple to complex.

Clases virtuales conversacionales en inglés para jóvenes y adultos
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.
