I am very flexible, I teach both on working days and weekends; mornings, afternoons and evenings.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach both children and adults; beginners and advanced learners. They are all learning for various reasons; some of them are University graduates who have a degree in Russian and they are brushing up their previous lessons learnt. Some are preparing for A-levels, some are learning for work as they do some kind of joint businesses, so I am teaching them Business Russian. Some learn for leisure and some for travelling.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I do teach via Skype as well, which my students and I find very useful and efficient method of teaching and learning!

- Do you have a personal message for students?

'One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages open every door along the way' - Frank Smith

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been teaching foreign languages (English, German, Russian) at various educational institutions for more than 12 years now . My previous position was Senior Lecturer of Foreign Languages at Russian University (Kazan State Agrarian University) where I had been working for 5 years. Apart from teaching I do prompt and professional translations from English into Russian and vise verse in such subjects as Business, Economy, Law, Mass Media, etc.

The methods I use to teach foreign languages are unique and tailored to an individual' s needs. All students are different and it is very important to find their strengths, focus on them and use them correctly to develop their learning abilities.

I always seriously and thoroughly prepare myself for each lesson, think over every minute of it, provide my students with useful and interesting material which covers the aspects of the language that my students want to focus on. At the same time, I ensure that the lessons are fun - which means they look forward to them!

I use a lot of different techniques, and every aspect of learning the language is involved; Reading, Speaking, Listening and Writing. I teach spoken Russian, Business Russian, Exams Preparation and so on....

I puts my clients at ease straight away by creating the ideal learning environment to progress quickly and easily.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes, I do.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I would like to mention my students learning Russian/English who have also become my friends, and who are very determined in their goals and are as dedicated as me, and I am very proud of them all! They are all so wonderful and it is such gift to know them. They are all learning for various reasons. All have different ambitions, but they are all dedicated and never give up!

“I studied Russian at University, but had not used the language since I graduated ...So last year I decided to start having lessons with Zara. I'm really pleased that I made the decision, because Zara's friendly and patient approach to teaching has helped me to become confident in using Russian again. She provides useful and interesting material which covers the aspects of the language that I want to focus on and ..., she ensures that the lessons are fun - which means I look forward to them!”
