Привет! I'm a newbie on Verbling but I've been teaching Russian one-to-one for about a year now, to beginners mostly. I adore watching the students' progress! There are quite a few tricks and special techniques to make learning more efficient and fun. But regularity is the crucial factor in your progress, so it's great you've decided to engage yourself in lessons with a tutor. During the lessons we'll focus on developing your speaking and listening skills and clearing up grammar questions. I always aim to tell simply about complicated things. I use elements of TPR Storytelling, Comprehensible Input and MovieTalk Methods as they work great and enrich the learning process. For your productive self-studying beyond the lessons - if you have time for that - I'll provide grammar exercises, audio of the lesson's content sometimes, useful tips, texts and media content. My students say I manage to set up a comfortable emotional interaction. I think it's never as good as an offline communication can be but I try my best to make the most of an online lesson. I've got my Russian Teaching Diploma at Moscow State University in Moscow in 2012. Previously I worked in tourism. I lived for a couple of years in Dominican Republic where I studied a bit of Spanish. Traveled in Europe, Russia and Japan quite a few times. I'm married with a French, I have a 3 year old daughter and I currently live in Moscow. I understand quite a lot and speak a bit of French and I'm still learning it. In general I'm a peaceful and silent person. I love dear-friends-meetings, dark chocolate, movies, popular science, swimming in an open water and pine-trees.
Please, describe a bit your level of Russian when you book a Trial lesson so I can prepare a program that would be of the most use for you.
До встречи! :)
