— преподаватель английского языка
It’s nice to meet you here! I’m Julia, a teacher of English.
As a matter of fact, I graduated from RSSU as a linguist-interpreter of English, specializing in Business communication. I had a relevant work experience, but I’d always felt my original profession limited my creativity and sociability. Having changed my career has helped me a lot personally and I hope other people as well.
My students successfully passed YLE exams, KET, PTE, FCE, BEC Higher and State exams. I share my learning English experience with my students as once I was in their shoes myself and passed Cambridge exams in the past. Teaching is a two-way process and these 10 and more years of teaching English have turned me into a client-oriented psychologist with a huge base of self-made and developed materials.
I’m working hard to create a friendly, engaging and vital learning atmosphere at my lessons, where students aren’t only exposed to the language, but to research, creative and art work, which definitely helps them think in English.
When working with kids, I prefer a Total Physical response method as physical activity enlightens the brains and thinking and It also involves a lot of visual support. When working with adults I mostly use a communicative method as it’s acknowledged by time and any material can be easily adapted to the student’s needs. Surely, I’m versed in modern media and Internet and aware of their high influence on learning and use various podcasts, videos, quizzes in teaching.
I’m constantly improving my teaching skills and attend MacMillan, Cambridge seminars, workshops and conferences (currently it’s a Transform Challenging behavior online conference, the USA – which is aimed at kids’ teaching demands).
I teach both in class and online, which is English via Skype. Set your goals right and enjoy learning English, you’re welcome to my lessons! See you, good bye!
