First of all, I am a journalist and only then - a language teacher. However, I consider it as my advantage rather than disadvantage. Since my primary work has a lot to do with communication and human psychology, I believe it helps me a lot in teaching and makes me quite non-standard and creative mentor instead of just boring formulaic school-teacher.
I am a bilingual, so I had a chance to look at my native language (Russian) from the side. That`s why I often know in advance what obstacles and problems foreigners may face while trying to master this language. If you are interested in my Russian qualifications, I must say that I published a book of novels in Russian at the age of 18 and the entire print run was sold out successfully. I also took part in numerous Russian language olympiads, including international leve, so you can be sure you`ll get a qualified teacher.
Expect our lessons to be very lively and interactive. They will be mainly based on talking and it can be any topic that you prefer. Of course, if you`d like to be guided I will gladly come up with my own proposals. Come around and see you soon! :)
