Word in focus

А кто этот чувак? Ты его раньше здесь видел? = Who is that guy? Have you seen him here before?

У тебя что, чувак, совсем крыша поехала? =  Dude, are you nuts?

My teaching approach


I believe that each student is different, so I always do my best to adapt my lessons to your needs and your learning style.

However, I don’t think it’s possible to teach “only grammar” or “only conversation”. I prefer teaching Russian as a whole, by encouraging my students to use it actively (speaking, listening, writing, reading), but also by explaining how it works. I offer my students a lot of conversation practice, but also reading, listening and grammar exercises.

I also think that learning vocabulary is really important. You can’t build a wall if you don’t have any bricks, you can’t speak a foreign language if you don’t know any words. That’s why after each lesson I make online flashcards for my students to help them review the vocabulary.

Finally, I really love teaching, so I always try to make my lessons fun and as enjoyable as possible for both my students and myself.
