ESOL tutor in Ipswich with an excellent rate of achievement, 20 years of experience

Methodology

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.

An experienced ESOL teacher with an excellent rate of achievement. I taught at University, school and in the Lifelong Learning Sector in Ipswich. I use an individual approach and make sure that each student realises their potential.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

English as a second language (ESOL), preparation for Skills for Life exams, from Entry Level 1 to Level 2, speaking, listening, reading and writing.

General Russian and GCSE Russian. I have worked at University and on the radio and have got an excellent distinct pronunciation and can help you with yours. As a professional columnist working at a prominent resource, I can give you a hand with writing.

Letters from GPs, your job contract and terms and conditions of your letting agent can actually be understood without the help of your friend or Google Translator.

Background

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.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I have a very conscientious Spanish student who is determined to impriove her pronunciation. We work a lot on her sounds and she is doing very well. She also wants to improve her grammar and writing.
An English gentleman is taking lessons of Russian as he is going to visit Russia soon and wants to be able to converse and read basic info. He used to torture himself with academic grammar books but now has agreed to change his approach to learning and finds it effective.
I am delighted that I left happy memories and some of my former students have asked me to teach them privately. Two ladies from Eastern Europe are serious about their career opportunities and are working hard on their English. Their speaking and listening skills being good, they want much more than the basics. At the moment English Grammar is at the centre of their attention, and they are improving their reading and writing skills.
