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.
Whether you would like to read Dostoevsky in the original or chat with your Russian friends over the coffee, I will help you enrich your vocabulary, improve listening and speaking skills, and will teach you many useful expressions, you won`t find in the dictionary.
I use a communicative approach in teaching. The focus is on developing speaking skills and ability to use language in real life situations and live dialogues. We will not spend too much time on grammar and written exercises, doing a lot of language games instead. However, you will be also trained in phonetics and pronunciation as well as in other key language skills: reading, writing and listening.The classes and program are tailored to your specific needs and preferences.
Program based on the latest findings in communicative language teaching with focus on developing speaking skills and authentic language materials. Grammar structures, Russian phonology, reading and writing are also taught as long as they serve the purpose of communication and self-expression of the student.

My teaching methods are inspired by four classical approaches which vary from students' needs and interests: traditional (e.g.translation), direct (e.g. dialogues questions-answers), structural (e.g. grammar exercises) and communicative (e.g. production of documents by students and teacher).
As a social constructivist, I am deeply convinced that learning is an active process, where the role of the teacher is not simply to transfer knowledge but to provide students with all possible tools to encourage them for creative self-work and further independent discovery.
Since my appoach is result-oriented, I ask my sudents to produce some documents after each lesson and to put them in a specially assigned folder in Dropbox, so that I could correct them before the next lesson starts. For pure beginners who only start learning alphabet, it might be writing by hand letters and words in printed and cursive forms and registering their reading. For more advanced students, the tasks could be answering to the questions to the audio texts I read and we discussed during the lesson (the list of new words is distibuted before), constructing dialogues and texts based on the specific grammar structures and chosen vocabulary topics, answering to multiple-choice exercices available in Russian language web-sites, translating to French students' own texts written earlier in Russian and corrected by me a lesson before. Besides, from time to time I also conduct some general tests of their knowledge followed by spontaneous conversation on the topics we studied before. This latter method allows me to reveal the gaps in their knowldge and to reconstruct my future lessons accordingly.
