Привет! My name is Alena, and I am a Russian teacher. I speak two foreign languages (English and Spanish), so I definitely know what kind of problems students sometimes can face. In my lessons, I use a communicative teaching approach which helps students start speaking as soon as possible. I graduated from Ural State Pedagogical University, which is in Russia, with a Bachelor Degree in Russian and English Philology. I had my university practice at school as a Russian language and Russian literature teacher, so if you want to discuss some classical Russian novels or poems of Alexander Pushkin for example, I have a lot to tell you about! I also have M.A. in linguistics, I work as a teacher since then and develop my professional skills on a regular basis. On our first lesson, I will interview you as it is important to understand your level of Russian language and after that, I will make an individual teaching plan depending on your goals and interests. Welcome to classes!
