I'm in my 4th year at The Herzen State Pedagogical University of Russia, my major is Russian as a foreign language. I'm graduating in a couple of months. I have one year of experience in teaching Russian on Skype. I have had students from the UK, the USA, Japan, Turkey, Germany, Greece, Italy and Spain so far. I can teach in English, partly in Japanese or wholly in Russian.

I offer various services, such as:
1) Free conversation - speaking practice, mistakes correction, and explanations of unclear things.
2) An introductory course for beginner students: I will teach you basic phrases and greetings with an English transcription provided.
3) A reading course - enlarging your vocabulary through reading short stories and arcticles.
4) A phonetics course.
5) A lesson for studying some particular theme, help with homework, text correction, etc.
Of course, you can ask me for a combined lesson; I'm pretty flexible.

I can help those who ask difficult questions about the Russian language. I will give you an answer based not only on my personal opinion, but on dictionaries, standard Russian grammar and colloqual Russian (where it doesn't work the same way they write in the textbooks). I can tell you what's the difference between close synonyms, what sounds natural and what's not, what can be used in an informal situation only, what words belong to slang and low style and should be used carefully, and what can be used in an official situation.

I use
* a webcam, and I would like to ask you to use a webcam too.
* apps like Google documents,
* I also provide books and all the materials you will need,
* and I make worksheets and presentations for structured lessons.

If you'd like to have a lesson with me, please answer these questions: What have you already learnt? What do you want to improve right now? What would you like to do at the lesson? See you!
