I teach across all levels, from Entry 1 to Level 2. I am good at motivating students and encourage self-directed learning between the lessons. At the lesson I use a variety of methods. We work on grammar, extending of vocabulary, listening comprehension, oral expression and writing. I pay a particular attention to pronunciation. Being a non-native speaker of English with a strong academic and practical background gives me an advanatge of understanding my students' linguistic needs.
I have been teaching English for twenty years. I taught English as a foreign language at Moscow Teacher Training University, at school, and in the Lifelong Learning sector in Ipswich (Suffolk County Council and Realise Futures) and currently at WEA (Workers Educational Association). I taught students of 16 nationalities from all walks of life. I prepared students for speaking, listening, reading and writing exams and often had a 100% exam pass rate. I always make sure that every student feels at home in my class.
