Если Вы говорите по-русски, посмотрите внизу!
My name is Edward, and teaching is *my life*! I studied in university to become a teacher, and also acquired my TEFL certificate in order to teach English abroad. My passion is languages, so naturally, I take great pleasure in helping others learn English and explain difficult linguistic concepts in a simple way for people to understand.
I am currently studying Ukrainian and have already spent quite a few years learning Russian, so I know how difficult it is to learn a foreign language, especially without a good teacher. I promise I can help you learn our difficult tense system, endless modal verbs, ridiculously long list of gerunds, and every rule you can possible imagine regarding the English language. I am a very pragmatic teacher. :)
I teach formal lessons and tutoring sessions - formal lessons are custom-designed for my students, and are very learner-centric - that means you will be speaking 80% of the time, while I gently correct you at the end of the lesson so that you can maximize your speaking time. If you have a question about grammar, word choice, I will definitely be able to assist you in explaining everything clearly and precisely! At the end of each lesson, I promise you will have a practical assortment of new phrases, words, or grammar rules which you will be able to confidently use in a real-life situation. This is my guarantee!
Если Ваш родной язык - русский, для меня не проблема объяснить на русском, если уж совсем не понятно на английском. Хотя я считаю, что на уроках английского языка лучше разговаривать по английски, я смогу всё объяснить простым языком.
