My approach to teaching consists of content-focused lessons with numerous real-life examples, interactive projects and role-playing situations, writing assignments (mostly in-class), frequent revisions and discussions, and more. The goal is to instill confidence in my students by preparing them for a business work environment where they can easily comprehend and communicate ideas in a variety of situations.
I've been teaching, tutoring and training others on and off for several years, mostly as part of my job. I have a degree in Business Management, and worked as a manager for several companies. I'm a freelance business writer (business and legal content). I also worked as a paralegal for 10 years, and hold a degree in Paralegal Studies. I have an independent interest in medicine, and completed the majority of required studies for an Associate degree with a focus on Anatomy and medical terminology in order to go to medical school.
Over my career, I have designed various tools for learning, as part of an individual or collaborative effort: employee handbooks and manuals, instructional pamphlets and assessment tests, and more.
Cancellation policy: a 24-hour notice is required for any cancellation. In case of emergencies, the student gets a one-time free pass every 3 months.
Irina was my highschool classmate before moving to the US and proving herself, among others, as Paralegal and Senior Business Manager. Why choose her? Well, because she is a great teacher with strong motivation and someone who can talk about business reality from personal experience. Also, she has one special talent: she makes learning fun. Enjoy!
Irina is an excellent tutor who loves learning and expanding hir skills constantly and sharing her knowledge. She has been part of the educations systems of three different countries so she successfully combines the best teaching methods and technics, and conveys her knowledge in a manner easily understandable, always having in her mind that different people learn best through different methods of teaching. Irina is not only a tutor but a student at the same time (currently studies Portugues language) so she perfectly understands the difficulties of learning a foreign language and has the patience to work hard to make sure you have understood it all.
Her lessons will be engaging and fun. Highly recommend her to anyone.
Irina is a wonderful teacher! Offers easy to understand, real-life examples. She was also very patient and really wanted to help. I enjoyed very much her classes!
I know Irina from social meetings when we were visiting Porto and she organized that nice meeting. She is amazing, very friendly, sympathetic and knows a lot of great things. I definitely recommend her as a Superprof and it is so nice to work with her!
