About the teacher

Russian by origin and Neo-Quebecois since eleven years, I offer Russian courses as face-to-face, blended and online classes (by Skype). My knowledge of English, French and some basics of Dutch facilitates teaching Russian from comparative linguistic and cultural perspectives.
In terms of structure, each lesson is subdivided into five elements: conversation, grammar training, listening, writing, and reading. However, this structure is rather flexible : based on learner-centered approach as my guiding philosophy, my methods are easily adapted to your knowledge level, pace of learning and personal objectives. The didactic material is always included in the lesson fee.

Russe d’origine et néo-québécoise depuis déjà onze ans, je propose des cours de russe en présentiel, en ligne et en mode hybride (en présentiel et par Skype). La maîtrise de l'anglais et du français ainsi que mes connaissances de base du néerlandais me permettent de mieux enseigner le russe en tant que langue étrangère par les analogies et les références interculturelles. Après avoir accumulé plusieurs années d’expérience en enseignement du français et de l’anglais comme des langues secondes, ainsi que du russe comme une langue étrangère, je jongle facilement avec de diverses méthodes pédagogiques. Celles-ci incluent, entre autres, une approche classique (exercices de grammaire, de vocabulaire et d’audio) et une approche communicative ou intuitive (conversations spontanées). Le matériel didactique (des exercices et enregistrements developpés pour d'autres étudiants) est inclut dans le prix de mes cours.

Русская по происхождению и нео-квебечка в течение последних одиннадцати лет, я даю частные уроки русского языка в форме традиционных занятий, а также по интернету (по скайпу). Знания английского, французского и основ нидерландского помогают мне преподавать русский посредством сравнительных лингвистических методов. Мой метод преподавания включает в себя пять основных аспектов: 1) развитие разговорных навыков; 2) структурное изучение грамматики; 3) аудирование; 4) развитие письменной речи; 5) чтение. Приоритетность этих аспектов будет выбрана в зависимости от ваших целей обучения (будь то развитие базовых разговорных навыков, или совершенствование лексического запаса), темпа обучения и уровня знаний. Дидактический материал (распечатка учебников, страниц веб-сайтов, создание звуковых файлов на основе прочитанных текстов, итд.) включен в стоимость занятий.
До скорой встречи!

My first experience of teaching where I applied foreign language teaching methodology was in Russia, where I gave private lessons of English to secondary school students and adults. Afterwards, as a PhD student in Belgium (2004-2009) I mastered my communication and pedagogical skills through preparing courses in Political science, organizing roundtable discussions, coaching masters' students theses and interpreting lectures from Russian to French and English. Since 2010, in response to demands of my friends and colleagues, I began to give private lessons of Russian in Quebec.
Starting from spontaneous conversations with my friends, nowadays my clientele has grown to the students with diverse needs and level of knowledge, thanks to my needs analysis techniques and rigorous planning in advance which include audio records of texts, scanned documents of diverse didactic materials published in France, Canada and Britain, links to useful web-sites, and an active use of Dropbox and Skype.
