I am by my true nature an explorer. Like all explorers, I love nature. It is mysterious and magical. I feel that the most fascinating nature of all is human nature. I am fascinated by how they are, how they behave, and their many intricate fascets.
Me as a Teacher
The truth is that as long as you are alive, you must learn. As soon as you stop doing that, then you're dead. And it does not matter that you are still physically alive. The other truth is that we learn by teaching. I like learning new things. And teaching is one more way to learn for me.
My lessons & teaching style
During my lessons I will make you talk. I think speaking is the best way to learn. Being good at grammar does not mean you can speak correctly. Therefore the most important thing is speaking. You won't sit around waiting to speak. You do not need to know all the grammar rules before starting to communicate. I am ready to listen with patience, to show and correct your mistakes. In my lessons, do not be afraid of mistakes. The earlier you begin to speak, the faster this process will become automatic. Each time you will be think less and less about word choice. Grammar will come without you thinking about it.

Great as always! I really appreciate the lessons prepared in advance and the reading practice. Astghik even sent me a recording of her pronunciation of some words I struggled with so I can practice on my own time. Thank you so much!!!

Another interesting conversation about authors, films, and some grammar... Портрет в чердаке...Я думаю, что ты полюбишь эти фильмы. О́ ком-то, о чём-то...Этот фильм о его жизни :)

A.R. was on time and prepared to listen. She was warm with my 10 yo daughter and very supportive. My daughter had fun and at the same time was learning. We didn't feel any pressure or being rushed. It was just the right kind of instruction.

I fully recommend classes with Astghik. Our conversation was very interesting, we talked about many different topics and I definitely want to continue learning Russian with her.

I started taking talking practice lessons with Astghik after one year of learning Armenian. My aim was (and still is) to become confident and more fluent in conversation. Astghik is just the right tutor to help accomplish this goal. It seems she never runs out of topics to talk about. She listens patiently and remains silent while the student is looking for the right words. Only when the student is finished or doesn’t know how to continue she corrects the sentence and types it into the chat function. When she speaks she slowly and patiently repeats what she says (and writes it down) until the student understands. I highly recommend her lessons for improving your speaking and listening skills!
