- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
If you would like online tutoring, please get in touch. We will talk over the phone to discuss the tuition you require and will arrange a free 20 minute trial lesson by skype. Afterwards, I will always ask you to prepay your lessons and we can arrange your first lesson after I have received the payment.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I taught French and French literature at different universities in the UK (University College London 2003-2004; University of Aberystwyth 2007; University of Liverpool 2008-2010). I also taught French and Russian privately in Moscow, London and in Bedford where I lived until recently. I successfully tutored students preparing for their GCSE and AS-level in French, for their GCSE in Russian and for their final university exams in Russian. At the moment, I work as freelance translator and tutor.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Yes (November 2013).
- Where and with whom did you train?
University College London (PhD in French)
Moscow State University (BA in French)
- Tell me about some of your current students.
At the moment I teach a number of adult Russian students French and English via skype. I started offering skype tuition in 2010 and found this technology not only very convenient for distance learning but also very beneficial in terms of student experience.
I have students who have started learning French with me and have now achieved a lower-intermediate/intermediate level as well as improvers. I also tutor elementary through to upper intermediate level students of English as a second language.
In the past, I have tutored GCSE and AS level students of French (in person as well as on skype), GCSE and degree students of Russian as well as a number of casual adult learners of Russian (in person and on skype).
