    Teaching Approach


    During my classes I identify the goals students seek by learning Russian language. I give every one of them an opportunity to participate in all of the class acitivities.
    Some people are shy by nature and will not raise their hands to speak in the class. In my class everybody gets an equal opportunity.
    I always value my students' opinion and take into consideration their input, suggestions and feedback.


    Program Description


    I build my classes based on gradual knowledge increase. First, we learn nouns, then - adjectives, then build simple phrases using those two. Then we learn verbs and start building simple sentences. Then we start picking up one case after another, tenses, pronouns, proverbs, etc.

    During my Russian classes I have a little "video session" where we watch a Russian video, try to identify new words, learn new ones, etc. Conversational minutes are also an integral part of of each lesson.


    Teaching Experience


    RUSSIAN

    I have been tutoring Russian on various levels since 1997. My services have also included interpreting, movie dubbing, and document translation from Russian to English and vice-versa. I have offered both private and group lessons.

    Between 2002 and 2005 I taught Russian for Beginners I and II informal classes at the University of Texas at Austin. My students' ages were between 11 and 78. I have taught Russian for Beginners Optional classes at Georgia Institute of Technology Student Center.

    I have worked as a Russian classes Examiner and a Russian Instructor with the Department of Critical Languages of Georgia Perimeter College (GPC). I have taught Beginner, Intermediate and Advance level classes.

    I am also contracted with Atlanta International Language Institute, as well as Language Institute of Atlanta to offer Russian language services.

    ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE

    I have Master's Degree in Applied Linguistics from Georgia State University. I have taught ESL classes at Georgia Perimeter College.

    Frequently Asked Questions


    Teaching schedule.

    My schedule is very flexible considering that majority of my students work Monday through Friday. Usually, classes are held evenings during a week, however weekends are also available. I strongly recommend to have a class AT LEAST twice a week. Once-a-week classes proved to give much smaller and weaker results than more frequently met classes; especially at the early stages of studying a foreign language.

    Payment policy.

    Fees are collected in the form of cash or a check at the beginning of the class. Students prepay for several classes ahead. More questions can be answered upon contacting me.

    ***

    These are the questions I usually ask my prospective students:

    Why do you want to learn Russian?
    Student's occupation, schedule and availability.
    Do you have any knowledge of Russian (ability to read, to write, to speak, etc)?
    How much time can invest in your Russian studies?
    Are you going to attend class alone or with someone else?
    Do you have someone to practice Russian with?

    It has been a fascinating experience to find out the reasons my students had chosen to take Russian classes. Some were in the process of adapting a Russian speaking child, some were waiting for their Russian speaking brides to arrive, others had Russian speaking spouse/boyfriends/girlfriends, etc. Other reasons included: a desire to read Russian classic literature in the original language, communicating with Russian speaking pen-friends, an approaching business trip to Russia or other republics of the former USSR, established business contacts with Kazakhstan, retracing the steps of Russian ancestors, etc., etc., etc.


    Cost of Lessons


    My class's fees depend on the meeting frequency, intensity, input, class load, etc. It depends also on the distance (if I have to drive to a student's place) and the number of students I am going to teach.

    The average fee is $20 for 45 min session
