Dmitry - Bloomsbury - Russian

Methodology

My name is Dmitry, and I'm an Oxford-trained linguist (with a master's in linguistics) and a qualified teacher of Russian and English (and a native Russian speaker). I've been teaching languages all my professional life and am currently a Senior Teaching Fellow in Russian Language at University College London.

I offer tuition in Russian (all aspects, all levels), translation from and into Russian, and help with coursework.

My teaching style is a continuum: from a very formal structural approach to a very relaxed communicative style. Usually, it's a mixture of styles - I believe there's no single most effective teaching method. Of course, I always try to tailor all my lessons to the student's needs. One of the most important things for me is thorough organisation of each individual lesson - lesson plans are absolutely essential. It's also important to eliminate any element of boredom, which I achieve through a relatively fast tempo and a constant change of language activities. Finally, I'm very patient and friendly as a tutor.

Experience

I've been teaching languages all my professional life. Before moving to England, I spent two and a half years teaching English at Tomsk State University in Russia. I've been teaching Russian since I graduated from Oxford in 2008, including at Bristol University and The Foreign Office. I now work as a Senior Teaching Fellow in Russian Language at The UCL School of Slavonic and East-European Studies.

Dmitry's love of language shines through. His understanding of language and language structures is extraordinary, and he is always willing to share that knowledge. Studying with Dmitry has helped me to understand better the grammar of Russian and made me more confident in using the language.

Dmitry proved to be an ideal teacher. He was attentive to my needs and designed our classes so as to cover the vocabulary and grammar areas I had highlighted. With plenty of experience of language learning and language teachers, I was particularly pleased with how thoroughly Dmitry planned each lesson and the breadth of materials he used.

A
Andrew

I loved all my Russian lessons with Dmitry. He meticulously planned each lesson, so the learning process was extremely effective and enjoyable. Dmitry was able to help me with all different aspects of the language, but I found that his practical approach to solving some of the complexities of Russian grammar to be most useful. Finally, on a personal level, Dmitry is a wonderfully kind individual. I always felt comfortable asking questions and, most importantly, I never felt afraid to make mistakes.

Dmitry has helped my daughter Tali with the preparation for her Russian GCSE exam. She is a fluent speaker, but her reading and writing were very poor. Dmitry showed a deep understanding of what Tali needed to know for the exam and how she could achieve this knowledge. He always came on time and prepared for lessons. He also set Tali homework every week. Tali received an A* in all 4 categories! I am more than happy to recommend Dmitry as a very efficient, positive, knowledgeable, and responsible teacher.
