About the classes

(What you can learn from this teacher)

My teaching approach consists of a combination of the communicative approach and the traditional study of grammar. The classes are focused on mastering all aspects of the language including enriching vocabulary, practicing in speaking, reading and building on the student's personal knowledge of Russian life and culture. I always make sure to adapt my teaching method to the student's goals and interests.
