My tutoring experience started when I moved to Russia as part of my undergraduate degree in Russian and Management Studies. There, I taught an advanced level English Class to a small group of Adult learners. Whilst I was at university I also held several mentoring and tutoring positions for the first and second year students. Since that time I have spent a year in London teaching both Russian and English to children and adults in small private classes, often in their homes.
Having decided to move to Australia, and then South Korea a couple of years ago I continued my tutoring in the online world, using two different platforms to deliver online english classes to students in Eastern Europe as well as Asia.

My Approach to Private Tuition
Having learnt Russian since I was 11 years old, I feel that I understand the difficulties of the language and can therefore empathise with any student. I aim to approach my tuition sessions with a positive and friendly attitude creating a relaxed atmosphere in which the student is comfortable to ask any questions. I believe that every student has an individual way of learning –in the first session I will use some of the time getting to know their unique learning style. This will help me plan my future lessons in a way that will maximise learning for the student. All in all, I aim to make learning the Russian language a little easier and, dare I say it, fun!
