Bachelor's degree in TESL, 5 years of experience / Native Russian speaker
italki teacher since Apr 3, 2022
Hello! My name is Lena. I am 29 years old. I am half Russian, half Ukrainian, but I was born in Kazakhstan.
I love music. My favorite genres are melodic hardcore, emo rap, cloud rap, pop punk and indie pop. When I was in school my brother and I started a metal band. We both are still writing music and songs together.
I really enjoy playing video games like The Witcher, The Elder Scrolls series, Dark Souls series. I am currently playing Elden Ring and I literally cannot stop!
I also love traveling! So far I have been to 5 countries.
Me as a Teacher
I studied at the Kazakh American University and got a Bachelor's degree in Foreign Languages (TESL). Right after the graduation I got my first job.
I have worked in three different language schools for almost five years. Teaching is not just a job for me, but also it is my passion! I really love what I do.
The process of teaching students is an inexhaustible source of inspiration for me. Being able to help my students improve the quality of their lives and make their dreams come true with the help of English makes me very happy.
I am always very proud of the results and achievements of my students, and this inspires me even more to improve myself as a teacher.
My lessons & teaching style
Communicative approach is my favorite tool during classes. What can be better than a good conversation? We can talk about different things you are passionate about. Of course, it is impossible for me to be an expert on every topic in the world, but you can always share some interesting facts with me and teach me something that you are interested in. I love learning about different things from my students. In a conversation we can apply new vocabulary and grammar that we have studied, it is a great practice and a great way to memorize new information! In order to explain grammar,I can bring you a lot of examples from real life situations to compare tenses and see the difference in their usage

Fantastic teacher. Extremely friendly and patient. Before I started working with Лена, I only knew the alphabet and some words. I am now on my sixth lesson and can now speak full phrases and have managed to gain a much better understanding of Russian grammar. I'm really glad to have her as a tutor!

Лена очень увлеченный преподаватель. Мне кажется, она переживает за мой английский больше, чем я)).
Спасибо за живые беседы! За то, что много смеемся в процессе.

I surprisingly had a lot of fun getting back in the groove of learning Russian again. It wasn't easy, but a lot of aspects of Russian were coming back to me as the lesson progressed. Lena even provided some game-changing life hacks that I was not aware of before, so learning with a new perspective helps a lot. Спасибо!

Time went by so fast I forgot I was thinking and speaking Russian for almost an hour, even after a 2-month break from italki!

as good as expected, if not better. Friendly, polite, positive. She can explain everything accurately in English which makes her a good option for beginners or intermediate learners who know English. I recommend!
