Всем привет! Hello everyone! My name is Elena and Russian is my native language. Currently I am in Amman, Jordan. I studied history and anthropology in Russia. Someday I dream to continue my research and start a Ph.D.) I have been teaching Russian as a foreign language for about 5 years. Teaching and supervising are my passion, apart from Russian I have been teaching history and creative writing. I am interested in literature, contemporary poetry, history, teaching, volunteering, anthropology, traveling, gender studies, and language learning. Also, I started to do yoga recently. We can discuss difficult, academic subjects, or just chat about everyday topics.

It's wonderful to (try to) talk in Russian with Elena about subjects like flight shaming, the political situation in Armenia, the names of our chicken and Romanian-French poet Paul Celan.

Elena is an inspiring person and an excellent teacher. Especially if you want to discuss themes that really matter, she's more or less perfect. If there would be more people like Elena, this place would be a better and more peaceful place.

The time, energy and effort Elena devotes to the lesson is remarkable. The environment she creates is so comfortable, and her strategy to help you learn is super effective. I have found the teacher whom I will learn with for years to come.
