italki teacher since Dec 30, 2021
Hello! I'm Daana. I was born in Kazakhstan, and my native language is Russian. Currently I live and study in Estonia.
My interests include stretching, painting, learning languages, and reading. I particularly enjoy Russian literature. Have you heard about the book "Fathers and Sons" by Ivan Turgenev? It's one of my favorites.
Additionally, I love traveling, meeting new people, interacting with them, and learning new things about different cultures.
Me as a Teacher
I believe I'm supportive, open, talkative, patient.
My lessons & teaching style
We will use different Internet materials: articles, videos, books, flashcards. During the lesson, we might discuss an article that you read beforehand or we read together in the class. It may also just be a casual conversation. To help students remember what we discussed during the lesson, I usually assign homework, but this depends on the student. In addition, we can do some grammar exercises or practice writing, as you prefer.
My English level is B2, so if your native language is English, I can explain some things in English for easier understanding.

Daana went above and beyond finding reading materials and articles that fit perfectly for what I was looking for - things I couldn't have found on my own. Daana is very patient and encouraging, as well as flexible and responsive to feedback, so I can happily recommend her as a teacher!
