    Teaching Approach

    I teach students according to their individual needs, learning language for the first time is quite challenging - my objective to keep you interested, involved in a fun having/learni ng environment, although self-motivati on is very important as well.
    Russian is not as difficult as it seems to be:)
    Good luck!
