About Eugene

I have a university degree from the University of Bath in England. I have travelled a lot during my adult life, and I have learned a few languages. I have learned French and Portuguese online with language tutors, which has helped me with my teaching.

My interests are the following: traveling, cultures, reading, physical exercise, meeting new people, discussing interesting ideas and current affairs, educating myself, languages and more.

As an online tutor, I have helped people with the following:

General English - a Spanish university student was going to be an Erasmus student in Italy. I provided him conversation practice and improved his grammar. He is now in Italy and he told me he is using expressions learned in the lesson.

Travel English - a beginner student from Moscow was planning to travel for 2 weeks in the USA - I prepared her for this. She went to the USA and enjoyed her trip because she was able to communicate much better with local people.

Travel English - I helped a pre-intermediate student from Sao Paulo in Brazil to prepare for a 2 week business trip to Germany, where she was going to receive training on how to use new software. I helped with her with understanding German accent in English, business language, grammar, vocabulary, listening comprehension. She went to Germany and had a good time, and succeeded in communicating with her colleagues.

She is in London now.

Moving to London, England - A student from Warsaw in Poland, upper-intermediate, planned to move permanently to the UK. I helped him with business English, IT sector English, grammar, vocabulary, better communication skills etc. He has moved to London, and found a job after 2-3 weeks as a Network Engineer.

IELTS speaking part - I have helped a student from St Petersburg. upper-intermediate, prepare for the speaking part of the IELTS exam. He is planning to immigrate to Australia.

Confidence improving - A student from Moscow in Russian, elementary level, who always felt scared when speaking in English. I am still teaching her, and have helped her with speaking confidence, better listening comprehension, better grammar and vocabulary. She recently went on a business trip with Russia, and in her hotel she saw two German men. She helped translate between the German men and the hotel staff successfully, and she felt proud and happy about this.

  • 01

    Do you speak this language fluently because of your origins or because a teacher inspired you to learn?

    I speak English because of my origin. I am British.

  • 02

    Can you name a living, historical or fictional character that you think is the emblematic representative of the language's culture?

    This question is not easy, since we are talking about a language spoken by about 350 million native speakers and about 700 million non-native speakers. Can there be a person who is representative of a diverse language culture of over 1,000,000,000 people? English is also the official language of +50 countries. What person can represent the culture of this language?

    I would have to resort to picking a series of famous people who speak English:

    William Shakespeare - a very famous writer from the 15th century

    Mr Bean - the comedian who shows an awkward middle class person

    Sherlock Holmes - the famous fictional character

    The Queen - The British Queen, being a symbol of British culture.

    Friends - the world famous American TV sitcom, showing the life of 6 Americans.

    Usain Bolt - he is an iconic athlete, who speaks English a first language.

    In fact, any musician or athlete can be picked - David Beckham, The Beatles.

    Any politician can be picked too.


    If I pick one person as a representative of the language's culture, I will also reduce and limit the language to what that person represents - millionaire, upper class, athlete, musician, TV show.

  • 03

    Is there a typical word, phrase, tradition or behaviour in the language that you particularly like?

    I like the tradition of going to the pub in England. There's normally no music, and it's a place for friends to gather and chat. The pub is central to English culture. People have a beer or a different drink, and talk about their lives.

  • 04

    Why does speaking this language matter to you?

    English is the most important global language. English helps people make connections with people from other countries. It is also an important skill in your career. There is no other language that is as global as English. Other languages are important in specific regions, like Spanish and Latin America, Mandarin and China, Arabic and the Middle East, but English is important in the whole world.

  • 05

    What is the main difficulty in learning this language and what can help the process of learning?

    The difficulty depends on the level of the student.

    English pronunciation is not so easy, and there are many different accents - American, English, Scottish, Irish, Australian, Jamaican etc.

    What you need to do is to watch English listening exercises, based on your level. I always send listening exercises so that my students can practice their listening skills

    Another difficulty of learning English is perhaps phrasal verbs. They are the barrier between an intermediate or upper intermediate level and advanced. They are very similar to one another but have entirely different meanings. Native speakers use them often, which makes things confusing and tricky.
    How to learn them? Repetition of them is important, but also listening and reading texts containing phrasal verbs - you can find plenty online

  • 06

    Provide a valuable anecdote related to your language learning or your days at school.

    Like many of my students, I've studied a language at school but did not make much progress in communicating in that language. We focused a lot on grammar, vocabulary and reading, but less on listening and speaking. In fact, speaking was the skill we practiced the least. This means that I couldn't have a spontaneous German conversation now. This is similar to many people's experiences of learning languages.

    I now understand that practicing speaking and listening is very important, and I make my students practice these skills a lot.

  • 07

    How has travel or a specific trip helped you to increase your skill and knowledge of the language?

    I have experience of travelling to other countries when not being able to speak the local language, and then I learned that language.

    In 2012 I travelled alone for 3 months in Central America. Most local people I met did not speak any English at all. I experienced the difficulty of not being able to communicate effectively with people. I started the trip with almost zero Spanish.

    During my trip I did an intensive Spanish language course for 2 weeks and I stayed with a family during that time. After 3 months of travelling I was able to have conversational Spanish at an A2 level.

    This experience taught me how it feels to be a student of a language. I experienced the difficulty of almost not being able to communicate. Then my level improved and I experienced how it feels to communicate on a basic level.

    I feel that trip in 2012 made me a better teacher of English, because I understood how students feel. I also saw new methods of teaching. I learned a lot, and I feel I became a better English teacher because I had to learn a foreign language myself.

  • 08

    What makes you a Superprof in language?

    What makes me a Superprof in English is my teaching experience, qualifications of teaching English, and my experience of learning foreign languages.

    I am qualified by the University of Cambridge to teach English (CELTA certificate) as well as another certificate called "120 hours TEFL" by the TEFL Academy.

    I have taught in Israel, England and Guatemala. I've also taught English online since January 2017. It means I've taught in classrooms, one-on-one, different professions, ages and nationalities. I have a diverse experience of teaching English.

    My experience of learning languages, starting from a complete beginner level - fluent Spanish, intermediate French, beginner Italian and Portuguese. This means I understand the process a student goes through, and I also understand what is effective and important.
