Experience: 3 years
I'm a Russian native speaker and my grandparents were school teachers of Russian, so we have a very high language culture in the family.
What I teach is surely different from what other teachers can offer. I base a lot of teaching strategies on (inter)comprehension techniques. I teach tricks how you can reduce the number of words to memorize through understanding of their morphology. I teach how you can associate cases with prepositions and how to crack down verbal groups.
The Russian language IS difficult and don't expect to learn it fast. But it can be a perfect cultural hobby - something that trains your brain :)
