italki teacher since Jan 23, 2022
Hello! My name is Lyudmila. You can call me Lucy :)
I am 32 years old. I am from Russia and I live in a Moscow region. I have a bachelor degree in linguistics.
Some of my passions are drawing, travelling, singing. I also enjoy reading books about psychology.
I've been always interested in learning foreign languages and I have a nice experience of learning languages here on italki. I've taken German and Serbian classes.
Music is a big part of my life. I worked as a violin teacher in a music school for 8 years.
There are a lot of things I'm ready to discuss. The only one I'm not into is politics.
Me as a Teacher
I've been teaching English on-line for 4 years so I have a lot of experience and all sorts of materials to make your studying with me interesting, engaging and efficient.
I got a TEFL/TESOL certificate last year. I enjoyed my studying a lot and it gave me a clear understanding of how important it is to create a safe invironment in class. That's why I pay a lot of attention to my students' feeling.
My lessons & teaching style
I prefer a communicative way of teaching. I strongly believe that it's crucial to feel comfortable while learning a new language.
Communication is key to a successful learning so I use all kinds of different resources to help you express your thoughts and emotions in your target language.
I do not pay a lot of attention to grammar if you are a beginner. But if you're interested in it I'm always ready to explain grammar rules to you.
