Hi, I’m Alevtina. I’m a native Russian teacher.
I’ve completed my Bachelor degree in the Chinese studies, my main sphere of interest at the university was China, that I investigated through the Chinese and English language, what was an amazing experience! According to your preferences I can teach you in Russian, English and Chinese.
I worked as a translator and interpreter, tour-guide and model, since spring 2018 I'm focused on teaching Russian language to foreigners, because my real passion is linguistics itself and the process of languages acquisition.
As your teacher I organise the lessons in the way to improve your communication in Russian. We practice speaking from the first lesson. I do make focus on pronunciation. We polish it if you continue learning Russian or I’ll teach you Russian sounds, stress and intonation from the scratch if you are a beginner.
I’m also a big fan of Russian grammar. It is not easy, that’s true. But we can master it in a way to make it our helping hand more than an obstacle.
Grammar, vocabulary and listening skills we can improve through the films, music and fragments of the world famous masterpieces in Russian language, as all of these are essential part of Russian cultural code.
As for vocabulary I encourage you to apply some mnemonic techniques, we’ll play memory games like associations, memory castle, mental maps to expand your vocabulary effectively.
Learning Russian you can track your progress and foresee upcoming topics we are going to learn in the google table I share with you after 3-4 lessons when the individual plan of progress can be clear.
I’m currently learning Japanese and Portuguese, and keep going to master my English, Mandarin and Russian of course :D
I like travelling around the world and I live in Saint Petersburg - the most beautiful city in Russia. Welcome to visit it, I can guiding you here.
