My name is Tanya. I am a native Russian speaker, living in Crimea, Russia.
In my teaching experience, I have had the opportunity to work with students from all over the world. I can say, for certain, that to really teach and for a student to really learn a “true” teacher cannot apply just one teaching method to everyone. The most important thing for me is to know you as my student, your background, your goals, objectives, and motivations, your abilities, and your personality and character. With this information I can create individual lesson plans and apply the most effective teaching methods to help you reach your goals. The key to a successful teacher/student relationship is flexibility and the experience of the teacher which allows her to recognize the progress of the student and adapt the lesson plan to meet his/her needs. Each of my lesson plans, while presented in a structured building manner, is designed specifically for you, the student.
The internet has given us opportunities that have never been available before. Applications like Skype allow us to learn a foreign language, from a native speaker, in the comfort of your home or office at a very reasonable cost. You never have to worry about inclement weather, traffic, or parking interfering with you getting to your class. You can choose when and where you have your lessons. Choose the place that is best for you. All you need is a computer, a good internet connection, Skype, a webcam, a good microphone, and a Russian keyboard (stick on Cyrillic letters can be found easily online to transform any keyboard to a Cyrillic keyboard) to practice your writing lessons.
What do I have to offer?
I provide Russian language lessons to people from all over the world who have an interest in this language and culture. Since my lessons are designed specifically for you it doesn’t matter if you are a true beginner that has a new interest or need for Russian language or if you have some experience and just want to improve your skills. It doesn’t matter how old you are or where you are from. I combine grammar rules with lots of conversation. This keeps the classes interesting and never boring. I have found this way of learning to be the most effective and more importantly the most fun!!! I design each class to be unique and based on your individual skill level and needs. You are unique and you deserve a learning program designed for you.
In order to establish that teacher/student relationship I offer your first lesson FREE! I call this “Lesson Zero”. The purpose of this lesson is two-fold. First it is to introduce us. Secondly, the lesson will allow me to understand a little more about you and to design an appropriate lesson plan to help you be successful in learning this language. We know, the most important goal for students is to be able to speak Russian in the shortest time possible. This early success is also a key to continued advancement in your language skills and success in your lessons.
Contact me to schedule your “Lesson Zero”. It will open your world to the beautiful Russian language and culture. I can answer any other questions you may have and the lesson is FREE!!!
