About me

CURRICULUM VITAE EDUCATION Volgograd State Pedagogical University Specialization: Informatics and English Moscow State Pedagogical University Specialization: Theory and methods of teaching foreign languages and cultures (English and German); TEACHING EXPERIENCE 2004-Present date Teach private lessons. 2005- Present date Work as a teacher in language schools. Feb 2008 to May 2008 Worked for Emerson. Corporate training. Working responsibilities as the teacher are as follows: • Placement tests • Lessons planning and prepairing • Classroom management • Selection of supplementsry materials • Familiarising learnes with the target language cultute I always use supplementary materials in addition to the main course. Extra communicative activities, games and sometimes videos make learning fun. Videos and authentic texts can be a great source of cultural information as well as motivate students and activate them during the lesson. Also I pay much attention to personalizing my teaching so as to match learners’ needs and preferences. I encourage students to use English and Russian in their out-of-class time. They could listen to the radio, find a pen friend, read books, watch movies, etc. Watching movies is a great way to learn English. Also I pretty often use on-line materials from different sites such as englishtips.org, youtube.com, www.americanrhetoric.com, isohunt.com, http://www.learnenglish.de/, http://www.englishclub.com/, http://www.learn-english-online.org/, rollingstoneonline.com, http://www.world-english.org/, http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/index.shtml, http://www.pronunciationpatterns.com/ and others. I think that new technological opportunities have been developed over the last few years and now we can benefit much from using them. I am a good internet and computer user and I want to apply my knowledge in a really useful project such as making flash programs for on-line courses or organizing such kind of courses for those who want to learn English or Russian.
