All levels of Russian: from beginner's to advanced for all ages adapted for your needs. Russian for business, traveling, mating and culture. The Russian literature and culture.
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.
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.
