Every language is unique and behind it is a long history with the original culture and their traditions.

Every student has its own personality and teaching a new language should be according to his or her special needs and background knowledge.

The main principle of my approach is that the teacher is not just a person who explains grammar and how to use it, but the teacher is a friend of the student and helps him or her to speak, understand and succeed in learning a new language.

"Knowledge is of no value unless you put it into practice." (Anton Chekhov).

There is no student unable to study, there is a long pathway to teach someone. It's amazing when people from different countries with absolutely different life and state of mind open their souls and share their knowledge as well as I teach them Russian language. I always try to make a special program for everyone. And I also believe that a friendly atmosphere will help us to achieve the best result.

In the modern world, knowledge of a foreign language is a huge advantage and a road to a brighter future. Learning of language is a multifaceted and time-consuming process. But all the difficulties turn into trifles, if a person has a huge desire to work on themselves. I try to immerse students in the atmosphere of a particular culture, to tell about the peculiarities of mentality, traditions; I prefer to use video, audio, interesting texts, etc.

Each of us is able to move mountains, just want! Learn foreign languages with pleasure and with joy!

A person can better receive information in a native language than in a foreign. That is why I pick up learning materials for each student based on his/her mother tongue. And besides I consider the specificity of this language when presenting Russian grammar. But you have to remember, that Russian is a very complicated language and learning it demands from students attentiveness and diligence.

I believe that language is a new magic world and when you start learning it, you reveal not just rules and vocabulary, but a new culture, its special atmosphere and traditions. So, if you decided to learn new language, be ready to make a step into new world and feel changes inside!

I am sure that each learner should be inspired and given the motivation why to study this or that language. That is the point why I prefer to choose topics and vocabulary according to the interests of the learner. Moreover, there is a nice modern technique, which is learning through video. It allows to practice grammar, vocabulary and speaking while getting closer to local culture and mentality. And if you are open and have a desire to learn, 50% of success are already in you pocket!

"How many languages you know - that many times you are a person." (Pavlo Tychyna).

The process of learning new language opens for man new possibilities. According to this conversational skills are quite important. That’s why I guarantee it to all my students. Also I pay the attention to individual approach and don’t use the dry theory. I love to communicate with interesting people from different countries, therefore I have chosen to be a teacher.

Learning foreign language is one of the most successful way to improve brain structure and cognitive function. Make it your daily habit and you will see the result. You can find interesting acquaintances, open a new side of life, which you have never seen before and even reach another way of thinking. Because every time you learn something new you become something new.

My students aren’t just women or men. Everyone is a unique individual who has never been before and will never again exist. I try to discover in my students the burning desire to know and to love the culture and history of Slavic people. My lessons - it’s a mix of grammar, essential phrases for everyday life, unusual texts about various topics, audio and video materials.

"Our language is the reflection of ourselves. A language is an exact reflection of the character and growth of its speakers." (Cesar Chavez).

My methodology is very simple: You do not have to say, "I can not" unless you try. I like to teach because I feel an emotional connection with my students and every lesson is a small but important step to our general success. My alma-mater Kiev National Taras-Schevchenko University taught me to always find answer to the most difficult questions. I think learning a language is a road where you never shouldn't stop. I wish you courage and peace if you start moving along this road.

"To have another language is to possess a second soul." (Charlemagne).
