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.

Russian Language A1 - C2 / Русский язык и литература
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!

Andrey
Certified English, French, Russian tutor in Paris and ONLINE
My name is Andrey and I’m an English, French and Russian teacher living in Paris. I graduated in teaching French and English but I also studied legal translation and IT law. I’ve been teaching languages for almost 10 years now. I absolutely love learning languages and teaching languages. At the moment I work for a big company as a private French tutor for English speaking executives. I know how to quickly adjust to changes in teaching methods depending on your goals. Whether you’re looking to practice conversational French, improve your pronunciation, prepare for an exam or a job interview I’d be happy to help you. My extensive experience allows me to vary my teaching styles. The communicative approach is the cornerstone of my teaching style but I also like making accent on pronunciation, especially when it comes to teaching French. For any language, I tend to choose my material based on the student’s own personal or professional interests.
