PERSONAL PROFILE

Certificate in Teaching Russian as a Foreign Language (Moscow Lomonsov University) - 2012
Scottish Higher in Russian (Grade A) - 2014
QTS awarded 23rd June 2016 (Grade 2 achieved) (also awarded QTLS in 2013)
Qualified Level 2 Teaching Assistant (NCFE ETAP (Essential Teaching Assistant Programme) – Sept. 2014
Graduate in French (1st) – Ilia State University, Georgia (Verified by UK NARIC)
Qualified teacher of adults (Level 6 teaching qualification (leading to QTLS) – University of Bolton
Extensive experience of teaching Russian to private and corporate clients

I have been teaching for around 20 years but completed my UK qualification in 2016 (a PGCE (MFL).

I hold both QTS and QTLS. I have around 20 years’ experience in teaching Russian - both in my native Georgia and in the UK. I first qualified as a languages teacher in my home country Tskhinval, South Ossetia in 1998 (this qualification has been verified by NARIC as equivalent to UK degree standard).

I am able to offer outstanding lessons in Russian.

On my PGCE course I taught French (KS3 and KS4), Spanish (KS3).

I pride myself on my ability to find teaching approaches that work with pupils with low motivation and/or behavioral difficulties.

Key Achievements/Unique Qualities

The international nature of my training and education has given me a unique perspective on the learning needs of pupils from a wide range of backgrounds and abilities. For example, I have taught French to English speakers, Russian to English speakers and French to Russian speakers and have also taught English (ESOL) to learners from South Asia, North Africa and the Middle East.
