Tutoring Style and/or Experience

Teaching Approach:
Each session is carefully pre-planned and will form an integral part of an individually tailored program. I usually email the student with learning material and/or exercises in advance. The session itself will deal with a particular topic or theme, e.g. common expressions, pronouns, or syntax, and will involve a variety of teaching methods, from asking the student to write in the textbox, to recitation, to question & answer, and so on. I commonly refer the student to internet resources too. After each session, I usually email the student a few homework exercises, basically to reinforce what has been taught.

Program Description:
My Programs are individually tailored. I commence with an initial assessment of ability and reason(s) for wishing to learn Russian. To this end, students are sent an online questionnaire to complete. I also explain the technical prerequisites for the program, and how the Skype facility I utilise works during an initial technical session. Students should have a broadband internet connection, and it is also desirable that they have a (good) webcam, a headset, and a Cyrillic keyboard. Sessions last about 1 hour (although I charge an hourly rate, I am not an avid 'clock-watcher', and often do overrun. For UK students only, I can alternatively deliver the sessions via a landline phone. The times for each session need to be mutually convenient

Teaching Experience:
I was a Qualified Teacher in Russia, and taught Russian Language and Literature at secondary and tertiary levels in Ryazan, Russia for a number of years. Since coming to the UK,
I have also acquired experience teaching Russian at home and online to an extremely diverse clientele. Additionally, I have recently commenced teaching Russian at the prestigious Millfield School near Glastonbury.
