General English and for Specific Purposes, Test Prep

I am a TEFL certified professional English teacher who is experienced in teaching general English and English for Specific Purposes both face to face and online. I help my students reach their goals of preparing for a test like IELTS or Cambridge, a job interview, negotiations, presentations and becoming more fluent in the language in general. Besides editing and proofreading my students’ writing, such as business correspondence, CVs, personal statements and academic texts, I teach them how to improve their writing skills and become a confident language user. I also teach teenagers and young adults.
My lessons are fun, interactive and tailored to your needs! Apart from audio-video resources, role-plays, interesting texts and practicing for your tests, we will focus on pronunciation for listeners to improve your listening and speaking skills. I also pay a lot of attention to developing my students’ autonomy that helps you learn the language outside the classroom.

About Me

I am an experienced and enthusiastic teacher who has taught adults, business professionals, university students, teenagers and young learners. I often develop my own materials to suit my students' needs and interests. My approach to teaching is a lot about common sense: help and support you when you are struggling, provide enough practice to make you feel confident outside the classroom, teach you how to learn the language in your daily life as you go along.

Education

I have Trinity Cert TESOL, Oxford TEFL
I hold a graduate degree (equal to a bachelor's+1 year) in foreign languages (linguistics) and literature from Udmurt State University, Russia

Experience / Qualifications

I have worked for multinational companies, such as Procter&Gamble, IKEA and Philip Morris so I am aware of the language needs of business people. I have taught owners of small businesses in Russia to help them start working internationally. I have tutored students of Higher School of Economics in Moscow to help them in their studies and prepare for IELTS. I have also enjoyed working with teenagers to improve their language skills and develop critical thinking. I have worked with young learners and found it very rewarding.

Natacha
Private lessons in languages and methodology of work
Passionate about languages, I am convinced that learning a foreign language, or even working more thoroughly in one's mother tongue, is a great wealth in terms of openness and self-awareness. It is also a very valuable tool for learning how to organize your thoughts and structure your ideas; what we all need in our daily lives. Holder of a Master in Sociology of Communication and Media and Journalism (University of Friborg) and a Master of Arts (University of Lausanne), I offer private courses entirely based on the needs and expectations of the person. The goal is that the use and learning of the language brings something concrete, especially in terms of work methodology. I teach French (school or foreign language) and English at all levels and to people of all ages.

Ksenia
English
My goal is to teach the whole person, which means, the cognitive, affective, and behavioral dimensions of the human being. The film “The Wizard of Oz” is a wonderful allegory for what I want my students to learn. An effective teacher is like the wizard who must help each individual appreciate the potential that resides within all of us – the potential to make the best use of our mids, hearts and those behaviors that can make the world a better place.
