Experience: 8 years
I started teaching English as a foreign language in 2009. In 2011 I opened my own language center in Yekaterinburg, Russia. I have been recruiting and training teachers since 2011. I have taught thousands of students thousands of hours of lessons.
I have experience teaching General English to adults, teens, and young learners.
I have experience teaching Business English and English for Special Purposes to adults.
I have experience teaching Exam Preparation to adults and teens.
The most important factor when learning a new skill is motivation. Where there is motivation - learning takes place much more quickly and effectively. Communication is key when learning a language. Traditional language training tends to leave students with receptive skills that are more highly developed than their productive skills. In other words, it's easier for them to understand English, than to speak it. A teacher using the communication-relationship approach can break through this barrier.
My teaching style is a mix of abstract linguistic and grammar concepts with communication exercises focused on training specific aspects of language that clients have difficulties with and building vocabulary in areas that hold personal value for the individual client. I think people who can easily grasp abstract ideas and who aren't afraid to make mistakes in order to learn are able to make the most progress with me as their English language tutor.
