Tutoring Style and/or Experience

Hello. My name is Olga Vygovskaya.
I am a native speak of Russian language, but now live in Gainesville. Back in Russia I got my Master's Degree in Translation Science and Tutoring. My Major was English. For two yers after graduation I worked as a Tutor at Chelyabinsk City State Educational Institution of Higher Professional Education, South Ural State University. I taugh English as a second language. I taught English to students of Architectural Construction , Instrument Design and Linguistics Departments( economic, technical, publicistic translation). I have been working as a private tutor of English( as a second language) and Russian(as a second language)since 2002. I provide group or individual training for different levels and use established learning sources along with elaboration of own teaching system.

In papallel with Tutoring I worked as an interpreter and translator. I performed oral translation for the 4th international industrial exhibition( Chelyabinsk)and for the official seminar on Bologna process( lifelong learning, joint programs). Mu duties were: translation of documentary and correspondence, organization and language accompaniment of meetings, consecutive and simultaneous translation for the English-Russian sides.

As far as my teaching methods are concerned, I want to say that they depend on specific language needs and entry-level of each particular student. Developing grammar, writing and reading skills is essential, bur I also try to make it fun. Making it fun enhances the experience and makes learning a language a pleasure.
