"Besides Russian being my mother tongue, I have a Master's Degree in the Teaching of Foreign Languages . I'm a highly compassionate and approachable teaching professional, with over 18 years of hands-on teaching experience in Kazakhstan prior to moving to the US in 2009. Being a versatile educator, I have taken up opportunities to instruct a wide variety of students from various backgrounds and all facets of society. My teaching philosophy is: “ There are no bad students, there are only bad teachers.” Many teachers make the mistake of thinking that not all students have the ability to study a foreign language. That’s not essentially true. Every student can be taught if the teacher is quite professional and creative in finding ways to encourage him/her to study. During my long experience in teaching, I worked out the main rules that I always follow when planning and conducting my lessons: -Be informed, eager and enthusiastic with the subject. -Organize and plan lessons well in advance, as good planning is the key to learning success. -Make sure that your students understand in advance what is going to be taught before starting each topic. -Keep students actively engaged with all parts of the lesson. -Address each student by name and use praise often. -Have high expectations and show students that you expect their best. I would enjoy the opportunity to use my diverse skills and experience to help anyone in learning Russian and ESL." less...
