A passionate and enthusiastic native speaker teacher of Russian language, culture, and history.

Methodology

My teaching method is learning-centered which makes the students to learn what's necessary for the communication, and pushing them to strive to talk, read, and write at the same time. I also help my students to understand the grammar rules that makes their learning process less stressful. My lessons are so full of culture references, food and anecdotes that captivates the students' attention and motivate for fuller self-learning.
